Mr. Jeffery,

Black America’s greatest concern is our sovereignty. Debunking any mis-conceptions about us is irrelevant because being a free people in a country of our own will by-pass these irrelevant concerns we have.

I am Black America’s first genuine prophet and we are going to be a sovereign people in my life-time. We are going to come into the territory from the northern border of N.C. into the Gulf of Mexico and from the Mississippi River into the Atlantic Ocean.

You are not thinking and reasoning in a straight line.

..."Some people think this rhetoric is nothing more than your normal, run of the mill, partisan politics. But you don’t accuse a man of being a “food stamp president” unless you’re trying to appeal to the nation’s most racist citizens. What? You think their growing hatred of a black man will motivate a majority of America’s white citizens to vote for your candidates? Not going happen. I continue to hope that a majority of these “white” American citizens believe in fairness for all. And because black Americans have been treated unfairly in both the past and the present, they choose to stand with President Obama as he paves the way for future presidents of color."...

How does President Obama have to do with this as an example of debunking misconceptions about Black boys? Obama was raised by the White side of his family. He is Black but his socioeconomic status and circumstances don't meet the same criteria as most kids. I'm not sorry for President Obama and I'm sure he wouldn't want any of us to be either.

Now I have a better example with that being a 8 year old Black boy. He has been diagnosed as ADHD inattentive type (ADD) and also a LD (Learning Disorder). The school according to the mother wants to send this child back to English school rather than the Spanish language curriculum that his mother has him enrolled or to have the mother to agree to put him on an IEP that amongst other things would stipulate that they dumb requirements down so that he won't be required to be responsible for as much as his peers. The Paediatrician straight out said that medications was the only treatment. The Paediatrician had the mother take a form to fill and one to give to the child's teacher to fill and based on the ticking of choices... And the 10-15 minutes evaluation in the doctor's office, the Paediatrician made the ADHD inattentive type (ADD) diagnosis. What a Load Of Crap.

Needless to say, the Black parents didn't agree and are providing a Spanish tutor, Speech-Language sessions privately, and after-school Karate. The school has no resources in Spanish according to the mother and have only offered some Special Ed sessions to strengthen him in English. When I spoke with this frustrated mother, she said that these people meaning the school system only care about keeping their scores up on those standardized tests so they can continue to compete for funds from the government but the mother and father are trying to I instil the principle of strong work ethic in their child. They want their son to grow up letting the education system know that he's not lazy, dumb, slow, or stupid but with the support and appropriate resources to support him that he can achieve.
