Child Poverty & Literacy

You may not live in a high crime neighborhood.  You may not know any children living in poverty.  There are impoverished neighborhoods in the United States, which is shameful.

Ask your elected officials to improve public education and strengthen our social safety net to end child poverty and improve student literacy.

Alter Capitalism

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot would like to rebuild trust between the City of Chicago and its people. Mayor Lightfoot has also vowed to end poverty in Chicago in one generation.  I support Mayor Lightfoot 's efforts, but to achieve her goal she will alter capitalism and philanthropy as we know it.


People want good paying jobs, great schools, and safe neighborhoods. In the United States low income residents are faced with few options.  Working class residents will need to be efficiently subsidized and their children provided a more practical education that will train them for good jobs the robots can't do.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on rebuilding trust between the city and its people

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has vowed to end poverty in her major city. Not quell, not curb, but end poverty.



Unless there are government intervention, philanthropic, intervention, behavioral intervention, nothing is going to change.

Negro Colored Black African American History


Can E. Franklin Frazier's assessment of Negro teachers in 1955 be applied to today's African American teachers?  Is the modern Black Bourgeoisie similar to the Black Bourgeoisie in the past?



Many Negro teachers refuse identification with the
Negro masses and look upon teaching prim
arily as a
source of income. In many cases they have
nothing but

contempt for their Negro pupils. Moreover, they have no

real interest in education and genuine culture and spend their leisure in frivolities and in activities designed to win a place in Negro "society."
