Well. It's been one week since I began contacting HBCU students. For certain, the ones I've talked with and corresponded with are very ambitious people. The number of people taking interest in having a discussion about diasporan scientific progress, truthfully, has been a pleasant surprise. However, what I'm not surprised about are the shiftless, buckdancing, and downright laziness of many who are supposed to be giving them guidance. Nobody, according to them, is preparing them to make the transition into the hostile world awaiting them. 40% OF BLACK YOUTH ARE UNEMPLOYED ! YES, 40%. An the attitude of many folks is basically to " get your degree, then get your ass out of here. We have to get our hustle on with the next bumper crop of bright-eyed youth. " This is unacceptable. I been searching for ways to polititely approach staff, instructors, and personell who should be giving the guidance in such a time of suffering and economic turmoil. Since I haven't found a way to be polite, I'll allow the students to listen to a show that is down right IMPOLITE. Yes, it looks like I may be getting down like that with a lot of folks. That being the case, I have some dynamic research proposals for these ambitious youth. They are hungering and thirsting to be a part of something serious, and do research that they can publish and be proud of. In the meantime, however, I'll serve up a few raw thoughts for the people who are letting them down.
