“I never trust words; I often question actions; I never doubt patterns.”
I’m a member of the Global Majority and an American Descendant of Slaves who is geographically lost in this wilderness called America.
To help you understand some of my opinions in my posts, my credentials include the following: I earned an undergraduate, a graduate, and a post graduate degree in the European (Germanic) educational system from predominantly white institutions in America; My real education came from the teachings of Marcus Garvey, Stokely Carmichael, Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, Fannie Lou Hamer, Angela Davis, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Mutulu Shakur, Carter G. Woodson, and many other people of the African Diaspora who subscribe to Black Liberation Theology (I learned their education, they haven’t learned mine); I’m a business owner and entrepreneur and currently sit on the board of directors of one non-profit and one for profit organization (both Black owned); I was a paid educator in an urban school system, but I will always be a life-long educator free of charge; I have served in one publicly elected position (so far) as Chair.
If you want to lynch me, that is your problem. If you have the power to lynch me, that is my problem. — Stokely Carmichael
