Provoked Thoughts Graduation Time Building Debt and Killing Dreams

"The American system has suckered the black community by continuing to raise the bar for reaching supposed competency levels to meet qualified exceptions to match job requirements. We have so many unqualified black graduates entering a racist system that ill-prepared to compete in this still race-based system that they are now demanded to gain multiple degrees which gain them no wide banded expanded salary boost. The only thing this educational boosting experience conspiracy is doing is placing more and more of our young black people in deeper debt without a clear-cut way to manage the debt or escape the debt. We’ve been sold a bill of goods that are in the final analysis against our own best interests. Why do blacks need a Masters's degree to sit behind the same desk a white high school graduate sat behind 2 decades ago before retiring with a lump sum gift which now is unavailable, and a cash payout on a home sale which is now unattainable? It a damn conspiracy to maintain lifetime control of our human resources by forcing our young blacks to buy into a system created for minimal success."

Provoked Thoughts

"If the dynamic legal team of the NAACP who battled for the May 17, 1954, Brown vs. Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas which included Thurgood Marshall, Jack Greenburg, Constance Baker Motley, Robert Carter, Oliver Hill, James Nabrit, Spottswood Robinson, and Charlie Houston were given a reprieve from their final resting spots today. What do you think their impressions would be regarding the nation's progress related to Brown, 67 years later? I truly believe in the context of success and failure related to Black American uplifts. America has not only failed to adhere to the principles of Brown but America has also failed the majority of Black Americans in almost every sectors of society. Dr. Derrick Bell, did an alternate scenario in which the NAACP legal team sought the enactment of fulfilling the "equal" version of the Plessy vs. Ferguson judicial decision in 1896 of separate but equal rather than finding it unconstitutional. In many ways this could've played out better for our communities. May be even it would have put our communities on a path of reparations rather then we we stand now as almost outcasts in a nation within a nation still."

Black Educational Excellence

I just had a tremendous week on my blog 10,000+ unique viewers and also completed another book UNEXAMPLED COURAGE on The Blackman Read Aloud Hour Project and started a new book, FUGITIVE PEDAGOGY today. My consistency in posting evidently paying off with increased viewership on the blog. My consistency in sharing our black historical experience is also creating an enormous social media channel that uplifts and illuminates black universal literacy.
