I'm mad and disgusted with the leadership that presently pimps it's self as the answer to our community's problems.
I'm disgusted with our Politicans,Teachers and most of all I'm disgusted with most of our Spiritual and Religious "Leaders".
Our politicans for not fighting like warriors for the State and Federal monies out there for the betterment of the neighborhoods they represent.
Most when elected forget the promises made and start to enrich themselves, their close friends and families.
The sad part about it all is we don't hold our politicans feet to the fire to bring the bacon home to our neighborhoods.
Most people in our neighborhoods,have a defeatist attitude toward the out come of the politicans who represent our neighborhoods,so in turn the politicans does what he or she pleases without consequence.
Our Teachers have no respect for the education of our Black and Brown youths,the expectation from our youths is zero and going down,it's not completly the teachers and School Boards fault for this level of expectation,it's hard to know what type of education your child is receiving when you are not engaged in their education.
I have seen parents who spend more time in the bars and clubs here in Pittsburgh,then in mentoring their children.
So when a child have not a clue as to the value of a education,they bring nothing to the table for a teacher to work with.
The reality of teaching and Public Education today in the words of the great R and B singer Billy Preston "Nothing from Nothing Leaves Nothing".
Unlike when I was attending segregated schools in the late 1950's and 1960's the teachers lived in the same neighborhood and went to the same Churchs and Stores as my family.
So there was a expection from each and every child and family to do your best,that closeness is lost to many Black and Brown children today.
Most School Boards in a lot of Urban Centers are no more then stepping stones for higher political office,if you really look closer,most don't even have educators on the boards,again "nothing from nothing leave nothing.
In the coming days and weeks this theme will continue on this blog,stay tune.
