If the Called2Action radio program was still being aired I would have guests in the studio this week to discuss the topic as cited in the title of this blog article. Currently in Wicomico County our Board of Education is appointed by the Governor. There is a movement in the County to change that to an elected board ---- elected by people of the county. I suspect if this desired change is well intended, it's driven by a desire to have a more effective education system in the county. This kind of change is drastic. May I suggest before we take this drastic action that we devise ways that we can increase the degree of accountability on our appointed school board. Whatever approach we ultimately decide on pursuing it will only be as good as the level of "living" accountability that exist.
As a side note, several years ago I had the opportunity to moderate a discussion on this topic in Worcester County. Experts were guest in the debate to talk about the topic from their professional perspective. The results of the discussion ---- There is not discernible difference with regards to educational outcome.

1. It is embedded in Truth. Initially, it is embedded in small amounts and then it increases ever so gradual. The undelying tenent is to establish a foundation of trust in those to whom the lie is being shared. Upon that foundation is built confidence in the source.
2. A wonderful lie is repeated in different ways, particularly by those who have the greatest influence over others. A wonderful lie resembles truth in its appearance and sound.
3. A wonderful lie is eventually accepted as truth, even when it's nature butts up against the truth.
Always seek truth, by reviewing and assessing multiple sources. Validate that which is shared through these sources. Cross reference it with the natural phenomena.

CAN YOU GUEST WHERE THIS CAME FROM? Is there any resemblence of truth in this?
Both horse and African Americans are no good to the economy in the wild or natural state.
Both must be broken and tied together for orderly production.
For orderly futures, special and particular attention must be paid to the female and youngest of the offspring. (In our nation's capital HIV aides has devistated young Af Am females).
Both must be crossbred to produce a variety and a division of labor.
Both must be taught to respond to a peculiar new language.
Psychological and physical instruction of containment must be created for both.

But, but, there is a big but that's at play here. Did you know the President can also suspend parts of the Constitution, by Executive Order --- a Presidential Power not designated by the Constitution, so to speak. Are you ready for me to share what he/she can suspend? Here goes. I'll just cite a few executive orders that makes this possible:
- The government can take over all electrical power, gas petroleum, fuels and minerals.
- ........can take over all food reesources and farms.
- ........can take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
- ........can relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
- .......can operate a national registration of all persons.
These are just a few. Man, this stuff is scarely, and you thought you knew it all.

Americans have become lazy, seeking comfort and pleasure.The reason the price is as high as it currently is, is due to the fact that we have not done anything to compel our elected officials to address the problem. We must take the blame. The persons that we have elected to office is giving us the royale shaft. Despite this my fuss is not with them, its with you, you who have chosen to allow this to happen.
Thirty years ago this problem was very evident, but we did nothing. So maybe if it goes up to$10.00 per gallon, you'll see the hipocracy in your non action.

Points covered, major misconception --- Slaves were illiterate. Dr. Randall substantiated that they were not. A number of Af. Am. writers came out of the 17th and 18th century.
A critical point, Dr. Randall shared, ...despite our progress in race relations in the 21st century...more sterotypical representations exist in Black literature. In my own words, our literacy may be "up", but we are reading more trash.

American Church and its role in our lives -- a liberator or an emprisoner. Julius Thompson, (Pastor), --- inset, leaving Called2Action studio --Adhim Deveaux, (Community Activist) and Jimmy Dumas, (Author) joined me this week. A lively discussion was had. A few things came to my mind as we were in the midst of the program. What is the primary role of the church? Ans. To draw and people to Christ, and help to keep them there. As this evolves it causes people to do good works, i.e, feed poor, build homes, clothe others, teach about good health etc. The later does not lead to the former, the former leads to the later. Should we be critical that the church is not doing more in the community and in people's lives? or should we be critical that the church is not effective in achieving its fundamental purpose? Just a few of my thoughts and only my thoughts. Thank Julius, Adhim and Jimmy.
