    Poverty Pimping..African American Genocide

    in Politics

    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!

    African-American Leaders A-Z- By Dr. Andrea Berry

    in Spirituality

    Dr. Berry currently serves as an instructional Supervisor of Equity, Diversity, Special Programs, and English Language Learners on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Dr. Berry-Opher is an educator with 19 years of experience in a variety of capacities such as teacher, assistant principal, principal, district level supervisor, adjunct college professor, presenter, etc.


    Dr. Berry is a proven collaborative administrator who demonstrates expertise in empowering teaching staffs, successful implementation of professional learning communities through book studies and action research, influencing cultural diversity awareness, and providing high quality teacher professional development. 


    In the journey of life, Dr. Berry strives to make educating youth a smooth process. She advocates, mentors, collaborates, celebrates and works tirelessly to help what one of her mentors calls, “Our Most Valuable Resource, CHILDREN.”


    A vital stitch in the education of a child is their knowledge base about heritage. Although we pay tribute to African American History in the month of February, it is imperative for students to see the impact role models of color have on their daily life and existence year round. Providing exposure to the unsung African American leaders in our country is the ultimate educational gift to children and my humble attempt to recognize greatness in the African American community.

    DOES RELIGION PERPETUATE AFRICAN AMERICAN SUFFERING & VICTIMIZATION

    in Pop Culture

    Hipolitix - 8pm EST www.blogtalkradio.com/hipolitix


    Join us tonight for a conversation with Anthony B. Pinn. Anthony received from Harvard University in 1994 and made his initial mark on the academy with Why, Lord?: Suffering and Evil in Black Theology  (1995), galvanizing Pinn as an African American humanist and solidifying African American humanism as an historic, non-theistic religious orientation for African Americans.  In this text, Pinn finds that black theologians have no evidence to support the notion that God is working on behalf of the oppressed, and any theological position that claims such is based on redemptive suffering theodicies that perpetuate African American suffering.  For Pinn, human liberation is more important than the maintenance of any religious symbol, including God.  Pinn offers African American humanism as a strategy for “liberation” that does not make black suffering virtuous.
