The control of minorities in the new America influenced early policing. New England settlers appointed Indian Officers to police Native Americans, the St. Louis police were founded to protect residents from Native Americans in that frontier city, and many southern police departments began as slave patrols. Today, as we examine police slogans like, “To Protect and to Serve” and “Committed to Excellence”, in a historical context, it becomes obvious that they’re not directed at the policed neighborhoods. We find police officers in the neighborhood of indigenous Americans and other working class races in the news every day. They Kill first and hide the facts later. They are murdering unarmed men and defenseless women and children and it is plain to see, in plain sight, they are abusing their positions of power. Through the media, the crimes are covered up and Politicians turn their heads as the innocent die every day while made up stories justify their “legalized” violence.

Today, we are going to explore an idea -- it's just an idea - something to consider and something to have fun with.
Did you chose your Mother? Did you chose your Father? Did you chose your physical body? Did you choose your looks?
Did you volunteer to come to earth?
Prominent educator in the school system, Acquilla McKoy joins Gabriel Rich on Thursday on The RICH Report. February 4, 2016. All our lives we’ve been told that education is the key to success. You want to do the right thing for your child. You want to give them all the tools they need for a successful life to succeed and as a parent, you believe you are doing the right thing. In the classroom, education tells a different story when bureaucracy comes with it. In this episode of The RICH Report, we will examine how the educational system has affected Indigenous Amer’icans over the years. On The RICH Report, we ask the question, should government education continue or should parents step up their game with other resources.

It appears that changes are going on in neighborhoods known as “The Ghetto’ in America. What used to be classified as so-called Black neighborhoods are becoming open season to a new class of more affluent residents who move in. A new development of the property comes and usually, it is accompanied by a severe increase in housing prices which could displace the neighborhood’s longtime residents. This is called gentrification and it follows a long practice of invaders to the American lands.

Show Title:Yesterday's Problems, Today's Issues, and Tomorrow's Future
Hosted by Michael Hampton and Gabriel Rich
Malcolm X is quoted to say “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today and he was also correct in not allowing a system to educate our children." When it comes to homeschooling, it takes commitment and effort on the part of the mother and father and the reward would be that much greater. While this SysTEM continues to bombard our future generations with the ‘slavery story’, we must be more concerned about education and upbringing of our own. As a village for the future generation, we must be willing to commit time, effort and resources to the education of our children. We must wake up for our children and be able to teach family values and beliefs grounded in truth and let knowledge grow. Enough is enough and the propaganda that is shoved into our children’s mind will destroy their future.
