Is it too late to become a nerd after you have graduated high school and college? Does it really matter at that point? I grew up in an impoverished neighborhood, that was rough and filled with more…Continue

Release of Seven Billion Sinners on One Planet: What did you think this world would look like? at TBA

August 31, 2013 all day
What if we took another look at why this world is so corrupted? Is it because of religion or is it that people don't actually follow the truth found in their own religion? Can there be a common cause with people around the world? Is there a chance that we might all be so self-centered and egotistical that we are the central problem facing this world? This is the question I ponder in this next book. The official release date for my sixth book is set. Looking forward to making a huge come out on…See More

I find myself looking back at past learning environments and wondering how much of the learning was my responsibility and how much of it was the institutions. As I re-read my post on blacks failing, I wonder about patterns of delusion that may have been prearranged by the institution.…

Choices: Never isolated, but always connected

Posted on July 18, 2011 at 5:30am 0 Comments

The idea that a choice made in isolation will only affect the person making it is only valid if that person was alone in the world and had no established connection to anyone. Choices are very particular for the individual, but interconnected for the whole of society. Choices can never be made in isolation of others. This is so well established an idea that economist had to create a way around it…

I was asked why young black men are failing and this is my partial reply (Repost of a Note from my Facebook page)

Posted on July 9, 2011 at 3:33am 1 Comment

I am reading a book called "Why Boys Fail" and it is actually clearing up some questions I have had for a while. Since I have had experiences with the special education population in various school districts and cities, I am now aware of a trend. Boys make up the majority. And in black neighborhoods this is worst. Now I do believe there are multiple factors and various stakeholders, such as parents, teachers, administrators, government, principals, and the…

Justice is Not Equal, It is only Fair

Posted on July 6, 2011 at 4:56am 0 Comments

After taking a hard look at the facts surrounding the recent jury verdict, I can see how it is possible to come to a decision of "not guilty". We may be looking at the case and for that matter all cases, from the wrong perspective.



It is plain to see that based on…
