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.

Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.
African-American Firsts: Government
Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.
