Real Talk w/Terry (formerly Relationships-411)

When They See Us

The Netflix series, When They See Us is based on the Exonerated Central Park Five: Raymond Santana Jr., Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam who were wrongfully convicted of raping a white woman in 1989 has once again rattled the community. A serial rapist later confessed to the crime, but not before the men had spent between six to 13 years in prison.

I personally chose not to watch the series for my own mental health. I have read about the incident and watched various news reports and a documentary about the case. The Netflix series has many of us feeling like enough talking has been done, it’s time for real action – a change for the better in the American justice system.

But where do we start? How do we reform a system that wasn’t designed to protect blacks and other minorities in the first place? How do we deal with corrupt cops, unethical prosecutors and judges?

I don’t have the answers, but agree, a change has to come real soon.

Check out my interview with retired Judge LaDoris Cordell, immediate past Independent Auditor for the San Jose Police Department. Judge Cordell discusses how someone should conduct themselves if and when they are stopped by a cop, The Peace Officers Duty Manual – a document that the general public is allowed to see, the Blue Lives Matter Movement and more!

NEW NAME-NEW LOOK-NEW FEEL

Hi Everyone!

First and foremost, thank you for your continued support of the Relationships-411 blog. I’m excited to officially announce that through much thought, prayer and supplication we have a new name, a new look and a new feel. The new name for our blog is Real Talk w/Terry. This has been a long time coming.

Just prior to writing my first book, No Longer a Bridesmaid, I started blogging about relationships. Then after publishing No Longer a Bridesmaid in 2013, my platform and brand expanded to include a TV show, Real Talk w/Terry that launched in 2015. The TV show started out as an extension of the blog and was inspired by my book. After several years of managing both a relationship blog and a relationship & lifestyle TV show, I made the decision to re-brand the blog to coincide with the show which has continued to grow these past several years.

The Relationships-411 Facebook community is still alive and thriving. If you do not follow the Relationships-411 Facebook page, please do so and stay in the loop with all of our zanny, witty, and funny relationship posts and discussions.

This blog will now share content that is synonymous with the Real Talk w/Terry TV show that airs Sundays, at 1:00 PM on Comcast 15 in Silicon Valley. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to continuing this journey with all of you.

REAL TALK W/TERRY: GUY PANEL PART 2

I recently had the opportunity to have a conversation with a couple of guys to discuss being single and dating in Silicon Valley. The first part of the show originally aired a few weeks ago, part 2 of the conversation is now available. Some of the questions the guys answered were: what is love, why are men afraid of commitment, is it okay for a woman to approach you and do strong women intimidate men? And more!

Real Talk w/Terry: Ask Terry

I’m pleased to announce that I will be periodically doing “Ask Terry” segments as part of Real Talk w/Terry. Quite often I get asked relationship questions via email,┬átext message, and direct messages. As appropriate, I will share these questions with you.

Catch this episode of Real Talk w/Terry where I devote the entire show to questions that were discussed as part of a panel discussion at a Battle of the Sexes networking event that I hosted.
