The most frequent targets of this accusation are those receiving government funding or that solicit private charity to work on issues on behalf of various disadvantaged individuals or groups, but who never seem to be able to show any amelioration of the problems experienced by their target population. Some even suggest that that if profit were eliminated as a factor, greater steps in the alleviation of the oppressive situations could begin to truly occur. These organizations target and exploit the African American community, for monetary gain. In essence, obtaining reparations in reverse!

Author Philip Reiss of Blue Eyes on African American History will be my guest on 12/7/14 @3pm EST.
Our conversation will cover Philip's career and discussion about his book. We will also talk about the recent uprising in Ferguson Missourri and with Eric Garner.
Until Bayard Rustin’s lecture in the fall of 1962, no other person had brought author Philip Reiss so far toward gaining an understanding of what it was like for African-Americans living as second-class citizens in this nation, which sponsors a pledge calling for “liberty and justice for all.”
The Rustin lecture became Reiss’s point of departure on his quest to learn more fully of the African-American experience; it prompted him to become aware and to truly understand that the entire nation shared responsibility for the dilemma of deep-seated injustices that African-Americans constantly faced. In Blue Eyes on African-American History, Reiss provides an account of a white professor’s learning and teaching about African-American history from 1970 to 1999 at a SUNY community college.
Reiss includes specifics of how and why he took on the challenge of teaching African-American history and discusses the historical events he deems critical for understanding of that history. His study relates the impact of economic exploitation facilitated by racism and how these twin evils are central to the African-American historical narrative.
Along with factual history, this volume intersperses some of Resiss’s experiences as a young boy, as a young adult serving in the military, and as a professor teaching his course. It provides unique insight into a turbulent time in America.
Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History!
Blessings family and welcome back to another amazing show. When most people think about African American History, the first thing that comes to mind is slavery right? Well our History is much richer and goes deeper than that, we were and still are a Great people with great minds and a fascinating culture. Unfortunately not much of our history is taught in school but that shouldn't stop us from learing it and teaching it to our youth! God says, "My People Perish For Lack Of Knowledge" and that's exactly whats happening to our people because we have no idea how great we are nor do we realize all that we have contributed to society.
Here are some Important and Famous African Americans you may or may not know: Benjamin Banneker ~1731-1806 Astronomer, clockmaker, publisher. Phillis Wheatly ~ 1753-1784 Poet, one of the first African American poets whose works were published. Frederick Douglass ~ 1818-1895 Abolitionist, editor, orator, author,statesman, reformer. Harriet Tubman ~ 1820-1913 writer, abolitionist, as an ablitionist, she acted as intelligance gather, refugee organizer, raid leader, nurse, revival speaker, and fund raiser. This is just a few but I pray this will give you a taste to study more!!!!
