CHARLESTON, S.C. -- A teacher in South Carolina is going above and beyond to help young boys in his community become young gentlemen, reports CBS affiliate WCSC.

Every Wednesday nearly 60 students at Memminger Elementary School dress for success and meet for the "Gentleman's Club."

Raymond Nelson is the student support specialist at Memminger Elementary in Downtown Charleston, South Carolina. He works with at-risk children and over winter break thought of an idea to teach his students life lessons.

"I was thinking maybe if I have the boys dress for success," Nelson said to WCSC. "When was the last time you saw someone fighting in a tuxedo?"

Nelson started The Gentleman's Club. Their motto is: "Look good, feel good, do good."

Every Wednesday, dozens of first through fifth graders walk into class in their Sunday's best.

"I know a lot of them struggle because a lot of them don't have men at home, so I just want them to grow up and think of the things that I teach them," Nelson said. "They like the reaction of walking up to classrooms and say, 'Oh, you look so nice and handsome,' they just love it."

I applaud this teacher's efforts and wish him the best in terms of success with the students.

I wish he would have thought of a different name for his group though because historically, a Gentleman's Club was/is private for men only who are from "good families or social position"--white men, and oftentimes to engage in sexual acts with paid women.

I get this though and again, great effort on the teacher's part.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
