Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
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.…Continue

From time to time, I ponder on the ideas surrounding the disproportionism of Black America.
