This is a novel approach to reduce gun violence! How about we invest in people that have not been invested in before? Especially, if the "law and order" approach continues to fail! 

I've said all along that many of our young men that are responsible for the violence in our communities have been failed by every adult they have come in contact with. Being that we have known from the time they were in 3rd grade that many could not read or write but, we didn't do anything to correct the situation, prevent them from being criminalized and being in the school to prison pipeline. The common characteristic of these young men are high school dropout/marginal education and on probation or parole.

However, we are all up in arms when they are 15 years old with a gun in their hand and have shot someone! What are we expecting?! Truthfully, we could have done something about the problem when they were back in the 3rd grade. Yet, we continue to refuse to truly invest in them and it doesn't dawn on us that we get what we pay for, which is the violence we see in our communities! #InvestInHumanPotential #PovertyBegetsViolence

Job Hunting? Dig Up Those Old SAT Scores -

Putting too much stock in standardized tests can put minority candidates at a disadvantage. In 2013, SAT test-takers in the "Black or African-American" category scored an average 431 on the exam's critical reading section, 429 on math and 418 on writing. White test-takers, meanwhile, scored nearly 100 points higher on average in every section. There is a racial divide for ACT score reports as well.

Hey young men this is for you, you can do the 4/20 and get all the ink you want, doesn't mean everyone needs it in or at their work place. That is of course you or your family is in the 1% population and you have a #TRUSTFUND and if not then life will not be fun at all.

First Concussions in the National Football League and now This.

This Class Action Lawsuit will be off the charts to a Billion Dollar Industry. This #GOBN aka the #1% will pay for this in more ways then one.

Black History Month? Not in San Francisco - SFGate

Black History Month? Not in San Francisco - SFGate

Templeton heaved a deep sigh. "You're not the only one," he said. "It's impossible to tell that this waterfall has anything to do with Martin Luther King, and that makes it completely indicative of how this city views African Americans - it's a population that's hidden, that the city is embarrassed by, that officials are ignorant of in terms of their importance and their role in the city's history."
