Tonight we have a special guest, Attorney Larry E. Williams, a civil rights attorney, who was Director of the Greater Watts Justice Center in the 70s and 80s. We talk about the inequalities in the criminal justice system and its impact on young black and brown men.
Mr. Williams was born in the Mississippi River Delta Town of Helena, Arkansas in 1944. As a Senior in High School, he migrated to Los Angeles and attended undergrad and grad school at UCLA in the mid-1960’s. He taught English and Speech at Manual Arts High School for one year before attending Columbia University School of Law in New York City from where he graduated. After Law School he became a Reginald Heber Smith Fellow and was the Directing Attorney for the Greater Watts Justice Center from 1972 to 1983 where he directed a staff of thirty. Thereafter, he entered private practice of law, primarily handling Criminal, Personal Injury and Real Estate Matters. He is based in the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles and handles a limited practice in Criminal Defense.

This week’s broadcast episode of Real Talk with Rick and J. Rich will focus on the mis-education of black youth in America. The current educational system in America is designed to ensure that our young black men fail. The current system misdiagnoses a disproportionate amount of black boys with certain psychological, learning disabilities, such as ADHD and mild mental retardation. These diagnoses are highly subjective, meaning that they are simply based on the opinion of the school psychologist that makes the diagnosis. There is no objective scientific data or tests that can substantiate the diagnosis.
The first thing to understand is that diagnosing young black boys with learning disabilities is big business in America. First, the school district gets between two to three times more money for every student that is diagnosed with a learning disability and subsequently classified as a special education student. Second, your child does not have to be in a special education classroom to be part of the special education program, so it may not be as obvious. Third, whenever a child is diagnosed with a disorder, such as ADHD, they will be prescribed medications to help manage it, meaning that pharmaceutical companies are able to profit off of their back.
This runs even deeper. National statistics reveal that three out of every four black males will drop out of high school before earning a high school diploma. This is by design; it is important to understand this...
We will speak on these issues and more, this Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 8:00 pm. I hope that you can join us. For more information, visit our Facebook page.

SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Police shootings, effeminization, emasculation, abandonment, submissiveness to outside cultures, and digression into youth-like behaviors...these are all things that have removed the Black male from the once powerful role of leadr and provider of his family and community. A large part of this is due to the oppression and obstacles imposed on him from society, and just as equally the blame falls on their choices to indulge in bad behaviors or submit to the challenges. How does this affect our youth? Join in tonight at 10:30 pm EST to share your thoughts.
