    PT 2 OF 2015 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: WHO IS EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN ?

    in Culture

    PT 2 OF THE STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: WHO IS EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN ? ASK THE QUESTION OF DO WE REPLY ON TO MANY OUTSIDE FORCES TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN OR IS IT OUR DUTY AS PARENTS TO SIT DOWN AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN NOT ONLY MORAL THIINGS BUT AS TO TEACH THEM THE BASICS OF ABC, MATH, SCIENCE, ENGLISH, AND PH. ED. THE DROPOUT RATE IS VERY HIGH AMONGS YOUNG BLACK YOUTH, YET THE NUMBERS SAY THAT MORE ARE GOING TO SCHOOL BY A VERY SMALL MARGIN WHEN AT LARGE WE ARE STILL IN BAD SHAPE WHEN WE LOOK AT HOW MANY OF OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE BEING LOCKED UP AND OUR DAUGHTERS BEING TURNED OUT.


     


    PT 2 OF THE STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: WILL GIVE YOU THE NUMBERS AND LET YOU DECIDE WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO IMPROVE THE AWARENESS OF OUR YOUTH ON THE  IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION IN TODAYS WORLD?  BESIDES HISPANICS, BLACK YOUTH ARE SO FAR BEHIND IN EDUCATION THE BOARD CAN NEVER LEVEL OUT TO BE EQUAL.

  • Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

    Children of Joshua- New American Revolution

    in Current Events

    According to Bibical citation, Joshua was a major figure in the events of the Exodus and was charged by Moses with selecting and commanding a militia group for their first battle after exiting Egypt. Joshua was one of twelve Israeli men sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan (Numbers 13:1-16), then after the death of Moses, he led the Israelite tribes in the conquest of Canaan and allocated the land to the tribes. God appointed Joshua to succeed Moses as leader of the Israelites along with giving him a blessing of invincibility during his lifetime (Joshua 1:5).


    Young people born in the 1990’s and beyond have been dubbed: “The X generation”, The Millenniums”, The Lost Generation” by the media. But, in Black American communities, young people, aged 16 to 30, who are attentive to current event, seeing marked aggression toward Black males coupled with judicial indifference, are calling themselves the “Joshua Generation”. When I first heard this, I did not understand this reference. Out of curiosity, I started to talk to scholarly people, listen to wise men and women in lecture settings and talked directly to young adults aged 16 to 30. I had my eyes opened to “thinking” that I had not come upon on my own.


    Young people are satiated with false promises and overt lies about justice, “leveled playing fields” and false promises about "getting an education” and finding a good job. There is a “disbelief” in American public education citing how staying in school no longer means getting a high school diploma. And going to college means being enslaved by long-term debt without prospects of a career or vocation. Distrust, unrest and “brain-washing” of their late ancestors, have given rise to Black American youth who are ready to exact change. “Respect is earned”, they told me, and “power is taken”.
