In another thread, there was a discussion on a very racist assignment. Kids had to use math to calculate how many slaves would be needed to pick oranges. The link below can provide more explanation. It points to a Fox 5 news report. http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/dpp/new...tt-County-20120106-pm-pk#.TwhAj6y37vs.twitter In that particular thread, I made a comment about how things like this should get us motivated to start our own school systems. I made this thread to expand on that discussion. It's very clear that things are not going to work for us the way they are going now, so how can WE control our own destinies? What would you like to see in a totally new school system, where afrocentric teachings are the main source of learning? And more importantly, HOW can we get started on building this new system? With all the HBCUs we have in our community, there is no excuse as to why we can't apply the same mindset for forming NEW schools for our children.
