Black life is not cheap, the African American is the wealthiest, most educated peoples of color on earth, with a purchasing power in the trillions, he is one of the largest groups in America and part of the DNA of this nation. He is the visible indication of how America treats her people. The whole world is watching and taking notes, fix this.

What would have happened if the Jews in Germany in the 1930’s fought back, against those who treated them like animals and then garbage to be burned? If one million of the six million lives destroyed, decided to fight back and get angry? What would have happened […]

Leadership Challenges of Churches in Transition: A Study of Three Churches   Delores E. Harris Harrison                Eleven o’clock Sunday morning has been called the most segregated hour in America; it is church time in the United States, and the time set aside to go to […]

Mean girls or mean boys should not be in the church, neither should mean women or mean men who hurt others in the home or work place. The church should be a place where the people of God come to learn how to love God and love their neighbors. Those who are struggling with the need to abuse others should be in healing centers, not the church body.

Bullying should never be permitted, either by good people or evil people. Bullying is an act of evil. The church should not be the place that accepts the bully as part of the congregation and a sinner in need of correction. The sin should be corrected before […]

Teachers already in the system should not be punished for the failure of educational institutions to give them the skills to be job ready for the requirements of a modern sophisticated state of the arts educational system. Teachers in the system should be paired up with well trained teachers to help bridge the gap between incompetence and failure to properly prepare professionals.

Teachers are innocent victims of educational institutions using them as cash cows to maintain a bottom line for struggling colleges and universities. Many should not have been admitted into educational programs. Many have worked years struggling to pay off school loans and the embarrasement of being held […]

Teaching for the test of life is the role of the teacher. Teachers should stand by students and let them know that they stand with and by students. Education is unfair in America and teachers should not be innocent bystanders to injustice.Teaching is a spiritual act, and should never be a tool of politics for injustice to some.

The uneducated will go to prison from the feeder education systems to the poor, the privileged and the lucky will go to universities and have a chance at life. The decision is made in the classroom and the belief system of the teacher. Is it wrong to […]

Has God called you to ministry? Has God called you to build His Church? Has God given you the intellectual skills to complete Seminary? Can you lead others out of dark places? Do you have the skills to make the blind to see, and the lame to walk out of a life of dispair? Are you just stumbling through life yourself and really just interested in Bible study? Before you step out and ruin the lives of others, ask yourself, are you ready and really the one to answer the call?

Breaking out of the culture of poverty is the hardest thing you will ever try to do. There is no help, everything you know and believe is design to keep you in the status qou. It is time to run away from home, join the service, go to school, visit relatives, relocate, work 2 or 3 jobs, go to school at night, but breaking out of a cycle designed to destroy your life. There is no help in your escape, but there is freedom on the other side of the road.You will not make friends, and your family will disown you, break out anyway, people come to this country for the opportunities on the other side of the road.

There are no Civil Rights marches or programs for the sons and daughters of America trapped in the back woods and small twons of Appalachia. White poverty is silent and hidden in America and to many they are called the trash of America. They are blamed for […]

What America is doing to its teachers is wrong, Colleges and Universities are not teaching teachers to the test of Certification. If doctors or lawyers were educated the way some teachers are educated there would be a cry about injustice. Imagine a medical student not receiving information on anatomy or a lawyer not receiving information on legal questions. Teaching to the test is required in medicine and legal studies, but teaching to the test in education is considered cheating.

         New York State has a Certification test for individuals interested in becoming a teacher in the best education system in the world. However, that certification test is not used as a curriculum and instruction guide for teaching college students with education majors. The country has an […]

Churches had better success in accepting all people as made in the image and likeness of God, and churches have had better luck with education, they have had success in teaching students difficult academic subjects. Churches do not reject students or develop racial decisions or economic decisions that prevent quality education for teachers and students. Churches should become educational institutions and effectively train teachers how to teach all students, and teach students what is expected of them. God does not make trash or junk, stop using race and economics to destroy lives.

America’s education problems relate to common sense, that is why they are so difficult to solve. Educators are taught not to use common sense, but to use, a selected theoretical source of wisdom to determine problems and solutions to problems. Educators are taught to seek empirical date […]

Historical Black Churches and Historical Black Colleges should help the forgotten people of Appalachia. Black Americans, Scotts Irish Americans and Native Indian Americans have the same common history and some of us have done better than others. It is time for the poor and oppressed of America to stop hating each other over race, the issue is not race, it is economics.

America’s educational system is in trouble because America lies and avoids truth about her history. America’s true history lies in the Appalachian towns and trailer parks across the country. History of the country can be found in the untold stories of Irish convicts, bondsmen, indentured servants, slaves, […]
