The Black Caste Condition

There is a lot to be said more about the black intellectual experience in the US. What a lot of American Blacks don’t understand is the class system being built around education. In so many ways, Brown v. Topeka(1954) has been rendered null and void. Although, the 1954 Brown v. The Board of Education ruling Read the full article…

Close Encounters of the White Mind

I was involved in a pretty interesting conversation today on twitter(I know, I know…). It came to be through a disagreement of sorts between one of the above. Ultimately, the basics of the conversation surrounded the gender of god(not going to touch that here, sorry) and it became a discussion on the various means in Read the full article…

My After Thoughts On HCR…Before

When the votes had been tallied, and the results had finally came in.

I still hold on Read the full article…

Concessions, Applause, and Book Plugs…The Black Agenda Conference…

Nothing makes my day better than spending it in the neighborhoods of the black community, listening to arguments about Jay-z, and brothers from St. Louis reminiscing about how the bloods and crips first came here.

To be aware, or to be moral…that is the question…

Haiti is still a death bed and the destruction of that country has not been historically matched, while little girls are selling their bodies for shelter underneath sheets. And I’m still involved with discussions about “consciousness” and the moral code that the “conscious” should adhere to. Schools are being shut down throughout the country in Read the full article…

No Taxation without Education…

In the aftermath of the University of California at San Diego terrorist concern, “noose-gate”, the state of California has more than one problem with its institutions of higher learning.The students across the state of California, in a grand show of solidarity, began to hit the streets to protest a 33 percent increase in tuition.

Elite Education or education for the elites?

The social contract is taken for granted. You are born into citizenship like american blacks were born into slavery, and now many poverty. There was no choice in that matter. The minute one comes out of the womb in this country, and the doctor smacks their bottom, and pink or blue blankets are ruffled through-the Read the full article…
