LOL No, no, no! That message was for Chuck. He literally "follows" me. There is a function on the board that allows members to follow other members, Since my first day here I was notified that he is following me. Ain't that "speshul"?

I guess he is a Psychiatrist, or he has mental telepathy, because he analyzes each of my posts and then tells what I am thinking, and what he wants me to think instead.

You know, some men have that time of the month, too.

OK. I don't see his post.

At what age the brain development is a scientific project relative to all people. Somehow over the years this project has been falsely been reported as being focused on Blacks.

I have never seen this information presented race specific. It applies to the development of the brain of all humans. I am waiting for Willa to explain the point of her post.

Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton Accepted Almost the Same Amount of Prison Lobbyist Donations

......One little-known fact this year is that Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have benefited from prison lobbyist money. In fact, they've taken almost the same amount of contributions from major prison lobbyists. Clinton's campaign has received
$133,246 while Rubio's campaign accepted $133,450 from the prison lobby.

According to a Vice News
piece titled How Private Prisons Are Profiting From Locking Up US Immigrants, Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have taken virtually the same amount of donations from the two most influential prison lobbyists in the U.S.:



VICE reviewed federal campaign disclosures and found that lobbying firms linked to GEO and CCA have already contributed more than $288,300 to three of the leading candidates.

Clinton's Ready for Hillary PAC received $133,246 from lobbying firms linked to GEO and CCA. Rubio's PACs and campaign have taken a total of $133,450 from private prison companies or groups that lobby on their behalf. Bush's campaign and his Right to Rise Super PAC have received $21,700 from lobbying groups affiliated with GEO and CCA.

"These companies are investing their money for a reason," said Bob Libal, the executive director of Grassroots Leadership, a group that fights to end for-profit incarceration. "That reason is to maintain policies that benefit them."



.....5 times as many Whites are using drugs as African Americans, yet African Americans are sent to prison for drug offenses at 10 times the rate of Whites

African Americans represent 12% of the total population of drug users, but 38% of those arrested for drug offenses, and 59% of those in state prison for a drug offense.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
