Some people say we don't love our children because we let others educate them. I thought about this. Then I thought about the Japanese. After the U.S. dropped two atomic bombs on Japan the Japanese sent their children over here to let the same people who bombed them teach technology to their children. Well they learned it and now Japan is a leader in technology. African children are just as intelligent and capable of excelling as Japanese children so what makes the difference? Why does being educated in public schools help the Japanese but is detrimental to us? The WHY The Japanese have their own country and they sent their children over here to gain knowledge beneficial to that country. We don't have our own country but we have communities. So why don't our children come back to the comminities with the knowledge? We don't tell them to. From the time they start in kindergarten we tell our children that the purpose for doing well in school is to get a good job. It's up to us, not whites, not the school system, to instill a sense of community in our children. Yes, that's easier said than done yet it must be done. We don't have to look at the Japanese. We can look right here at brotha jamesfromphilly and brotha oldsoul. Ask them what they did to build a sense of community in the children in their communities. They couldn't solve the whole problem of Black children all over the United States. But then it wasn't given to them to solve the whole problem It was given to them to touch those children who were right there and that is what they did.
