    Black People Politics : Congressman Reintroduces Bill to Find Remedies for Reparations; Michael Eric Dyson Has an Option for

    What exactly is it about the word 'colored' you disagree? Or is it your way in agreeing that this reparations business is nonsense?

    Black People Politics : Congressman Reintroduces Bill to Find Remedies for Reparations; Michael Eric Dyson Has an Option for

    This movement will NEVER come to fruition until and/or unless it becomes majority colored, black and governed by such. White people see little to NO compelling reason to provide reparations to the millions of African Americans that live in this country today. What does this even look like? Does...

    A COMMUNITY TO RAISE A CHILD...how is the African American community doing with this? Or are you simply stating the obvious?

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    Thanks. I'm sorry, but Europeans replaced the k sound with the c? C what? Letter or sound? So, in your world the letter C doesn't make a hard 'k' sound? Of all the things, what a benign show of race/cultural 'consciousness.' Interesting. Could you provide me with evidence on how that...

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    What?! What would you have to research??? Am I correct in saying that you are not American? Again, incorrect. I NEVER proposed such an idea. If you know anything of 'American' history, it is largely one told from an Eurocentric perspective, but, by no means is the history Eurocentric. Our...

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    1. I was speaking of USA. 2. Never suggested that money and the accumulation of wealth necessarily leads to happiness. I am suggesting that, in order for our children to be given the best opportunities to succeed, you don't provide them with sub-standard education. An education that does not...

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    Actually, I do not believe that integrated education is necessary. In fact, I believe, if there are those compelled and so passionate, that they should create schools that serve our children with the highest standards of education. So, apparently, you must have read someone else's post on the...

    Black Education / Schools : President Barack Obama launched Computer Science for All initiative

    Senegal. Python is a great language for beginners and very powerful, popular. I teach Python and Java and will offer courses in Swift and/or C#. I also teach ANDROID development. Python is one of those FREE languages that our kids should be learning! Also Java!!!!!!

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    I am quite aware of the 'experts' and their assertions regarding Ebonics and its value. I simply want to make certain that it doesn't become some crazy standard bearer for separating our children even more. Yes, language is used to communicate and whether you like it or not, standard (white)...

    Senegal : Being African American in Senegal

    Hi Liberty. I think it is unfortunate how so many African Americans have this romanticized view of Africa. Home? Our ancestors may have come from there, HUNDREDS of years ago, but it is a foreign world for us and the native Africans do not always view us as one of the family 'returning.' Having...

    Black Education / Schools : Can black English help black children learn better? One educator believes so

    I'm sorry, so this 'white' woman thinks by teaching our poor, disenfranchised children ebonics, no encouraging its use as a mode of instruction, will help our kids learn better? What?! SO, once again, we have another white person telling the AA community that you are too different to learn like...

    Black Education / Schools : President Barack Obama launched Computer Science for All initiative

    There are practical and marketing reasons why people are loyal to Apple. You should also know that Mac iOS's foundation is UNIX, similar to Linux. Not sure why you think Linux on Raspberry is any more advantageous. As a typical user, there is no reason to use a Raspberry. As per the topic of...
