    The Miseducation of Texas Students

    in Politics

    The Texas NAACP and Texas League of United Latin American Citizens on Monday contended that the curriculum changes passed in May “were made with the intention to discriminate” and would have a “stigmatizing impact” on African-American and Latino students.“The State of Texas is failing to provide many of its minority students with equal educational opportunities,” documents sent to the federal department said.This is like in your face, like showing the ultimate in disrespect,” Bledsoe said. “To suggest the positive aspects of slavery or to exalt Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy is just an abomination. I mean no disrespect to people who may have had ancestors who were part of that, but it is what it is.”NewsOne

    Tonight we will introduce new termonolgy.Establishment Media and how to identify whether a blogger is a plant of the Establishment Media or are they part of the grassroot activism.There is an effort to silence Black alternative media,in order to incorporate it into the Left or Right Wing Establishment Media's agenda.So who are we?What is our purpose?Are we to live on the Democrat or Republican Plantations forever?Tonight we may have an important guest on.Mr David Alexander Hitt of the IAAC to discuss nationalism in 2014.

    View from The Wright Way

    in Education

    She calls herself the "Badass Breastfeeding, Babywearing, Attachment parenting, Pole dancing, Yogi Momma! Who inspires and empowers men & women Her WAY! Ms. Wrights Way". 

    That's a mouth full but when you take the time to read her blog you know she is all that and then some. 

    Join Rebecca and Moon as they sit down with Ashley Wright to discuss how she got on the path of breastfeeding advocacy and attachment parenting. From Pole dancing & yoga to breastfeeding on the red carpet she lives a very in your face, take it or live it life that we admire here at View From A Rack. 

    "Hailing from the illustrious Golden State she always had an appreciation for love, fitness, artistic expression and a natural way of living. After having obtained a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Hampton University, she began to slowly come into her own rejecting the demands of what others felt were appropriate for her life. However, it wasn’t until she became a mother, that she truly understood her path and the necessity of support.

    Having organized the most attended World Breastfeeding Event to date with the Northeast Valley Health Center, she began to live out loud, using social media to build her village, increase her family and establish a strong support system; spreading the message of self-love, healing and natural parenting.

    Her message to all parents and individuals is, “It is okay to be 100% committed to your child(ren) and loved ones. In doing so make sure that you take the time to give to yourself."
