The Path of Sustainable Hope for Our City

There is so much work to be done, and I am always among the first to admit that we are far from the ideal situation in this city. But I completely believe that we have enough people in our city that care about our kids to make things better.

A brief history of​ how black children internalize racism in the classroom

“I had often observed, that when her mother washed her face it looked very rosy; but when she washed mine it did not look so; I therefore tried oftentimes myself if I could not by washing make my face of the same color as my little play-mate(Mary), but it was all in vain; and I now began to be mortified at the difference in our complexions. (Equiano, 1794, p.64)”

Black Intellectual Genocide in Public Education…Stop Placing All the Blame on Black Parents

It is a black holocaust; a modern-day intellectual massacre — a Willy-Lynch reincarnated method playing out in the twenty-first-century on how to control and maintain ‘your’ present-day negro population; and the solution, so they do not become a “problem,” is cognitive docility.
