    Wisdom Wednesday: How Important is Education in the Black Community?

    in Entertainment

    To be educated and Black in America is the deadliest weapon we have to fight against white supremacy. When you're educated in both your true history and the history the white man lied to you about, it allows you to be ahead of the game.


    Most of our people are oblivious and believe everything they were taught in school. They also were taught, subconsciously, that as a black person they will never be anything more than a slave to society. Well, all that is bullshit. AND AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!


    To all you lazy ass parents who don't want to help your kids fill out that college application or their FASFA, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. To all the kids who are lazy and have no ambition to be better than what you’ve been taught to be, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. To any Black person in America who doesn't use their voice to help guide and influence their people YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.


    So how do we fix it? The first step is to understand how important it is to be educated in both the white man's history and the Black man's history… So, lets teach our kids to build jobs and not look for jobs, meaning, as a Black person, you need an education or somebody with guidance to help get to where you wanna be in life.


    STATISTICS SHOW BLACK PEOPLE ARE IN POVERTY MORE SO THAN WHITE PEOPLE. WHICH MEANS YALL BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO GET AN EDUCATION IN ORDER TO BE ON THE SAME PLAYING FIELD AS THESE WHITE PEOPLE.


    SO GET YOURSELF AN EDUCATION & TUNE INTO DYMONDSRADIO.COM AT 10 PM PST OR CALL (347) 996-5750\

    The New Heights Show on Education with Host Charlotte McGuire

    in Education

    Topic:  “Common Core - Education without Representation's Excerpt on Freedom to Fail”


     "Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about Common Core.  So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education."  Common Core is a set of national academic standards for designated subjects, currently, Mathematics and English Language Arts/literacy (ELA).  These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade throughout their K-12 education. The standards were created to ensure all students graduate from high school with knowledge and skills to be college and career ready. This episode will focus on one perspective and its background and premises for the development of Common Core national standards.


    Our Mission:


    The New Heights Educational Group Inc. supports literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.  Such services include assisting families in their selection of schools, organization of educational activities, and acquisition of materials.  We promote a healthy learning environment and offer enrichment programs for families of preschool and school age children, including children with special needs.

    The Re-Education of Black People on Government & Economics

    in Radio

    Based on 'Unlimited Education' Research many of the problems that plague Black People and other minorities in the United States is the overwhelmingly low understanding of the value of understanding and participating in the Political Process, as well as the value of understanding and participating in the Economic System on an Entrepreneural level.

    The value of Government Education, Political Science and Economic Education must not continue to be underestimated, if Black and White People are to solve the problems of Black Poverty, Lower Quality Education among Black People, Drugs, Alcohol, Crime, Violence, Police Brutality, Mass Incarceration and others... 

    All of thise problems, in part, are directly or indirectly related to Black People, as a whole, not asserting their political and economic might to influence public policy and their inability to fund and support their own endeavors, due to low Entrepreneurship and a lack of understanding of basic Economic Principles. Way too many Black People fail to pay adequate attention to what is going on in politics and economics and way too many simply don't believe in the Political and Economic Systems. They don't believe they were designed for Black People, consider them corrupt systems or systems of White Supremacy.

    These beliefs are, of-course, the product of conspiracy theories that have some, but very little basis in fact, as I will point out in this rather short broadcast, which is designed to deliver some very basic, yet valuable information on the structure of our government and economic systems in America, as they affect African-Americans and their relationship with White Americans.
