You've got to be taught!

Updated: Jun 11, 2021

Children learn from an early age to differentiate and to hate.

You've got to be taught!, You've got to be taught!

Those seeking social equality have been seeking a solution to this for decades, long before Martin Luther King Jr.

He made us look at who we had become as a society and we made changes.

Why is that slipping away?

It doesn’t have to.

We can take control. Stop the social implosion.

"If we are going to see change quickly, there needs to be an immediate change in what is taught in schools, especially history. More information about Black and brown, and women, contributions to society need to be focused on at all levels — from elementary school on up. Racial and cultural classes, as well as religious and atheist tolerance, needs to be introduced early on. Classes on compassion, anti-bullying and conflict resolution should be taught as well. Many times, school is where people unlearn racism passed down in their families for generations." Our thanks to Nancy Greene and Blavity MORE INFO

“Like all of you, I watched as a gang—organized, violent, and mad they’d lost an election—laid siege to the United States Capitol. They set up gallows. They proudly waved the traitorous flag of the Confederacy through the halls. They desecrated the center of American government,” she wrote in the statement she released."

YOU can make a difference.

“Let us not seek…justice…by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” Martin Luther King Jr. 1963

This video explains a great deal from the perspective of someone who has dealt with racism all his life.

5 things you can't control 1. What other people think of you. 2. What other people do. 3. What happens around you. 4. The outcome of your efforts. 5. The passage of time. So let go and focus on what you can control - what you do today.

Racism is not one of the Five.

I’ve seen his podcasts before and didn’t think to respond but this one is a little different.

I wish more people who were raised in a racist home could see how damaging their education is. Interesting that something deep inside him and his siblings told them their parents were wrong.

Growing up in Los Angeles I seldom heard racist remarks albeit it was a predominately Black neighborhood. My mother was more concerned with my coming in contact with gang members than a racist person.

I went to UCLA on an academic scholarship and can not remember there ever being a prejudiced comment made to me or anyone one else whether they were middle eastern, Jewish or whatever.

When I was working for the Secret Service in north Africa, that is where I had all kinds of comments made, not because of my color but my nationality. Figuring I was there to take down al Qaeda operatives, I accepted the comments.
