Thank You Leshaun Jenkins For A Moment In Education As It Relates To The Boyz In Da Hood

Response: What an awesome moment in education.
Watching Boyz In Da Hood..and let me say that it is the most prophetic movie that I have ever seen. John Singletary wrote this powerful "hood movie" in 1990 depicting life in the "hood". This was a forewarning 24 years ago of the dangers and challenges that were in the making in low socio-economical communities. As I am watching this movie, its so scary the things that were placed on the big screen 24 years ago are a reality now like:

1. The power of poverty-when people live an impoverished life physically, it then becomes mental; its at this point that people believe all lies and depictions that society has formed about them.

2. The power of an education-Ricks ticket out of the hood was supposedly his football scholarship to USC…when in reality his ticket out was his education, and not his athleticism; that just adds a cherry on top.

3.The power of a lack of ethics-Rick was in high school with a live in girlfriend, and a baby under his mothers roof…not forming an opinion about teenage pregnancy, but its hard not for a teen to get pregnant with the lifestyle is already endorsed culturally and familiarly.

4. The power of an absent father-I certainly don’t want to insinuate that a kid cant be successful without a present father (I’m a living witness), but I will say a present "Real" dad with help offset pressures of joining a gang an or pressures of identify themselves by street expectations. NO real man is going to allow his son to cohabitate in his house and the streets.

THIS IS A POWERFUL TEACHING TOOL IN THE FORM OF A MOVIE…B/c most people have attention span issues, I am going to cut my post right here, but if you have not seen Boyz In Da Hood, watch it!

Federal complaint claims unfair policing policies in Wake County schools – News & Observer

Raleigh, N.C. — A complaint filed Wednesday with the U.S. Department of Justice claims school policing policies and practices in the Wake County Public School System "unnecessarily and unlawfully punish and criminalize minor misbehaviors and disproportionately harm African-American students and students with disabilities."

Legal Aid of North Carolina’s Advocate for Children Services and more than a dozen other groups filed the complaint against the school system, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office and eight police departments in Wake County, saying that law enforcement officers are routinely used at schools to address minor discipline matters, such as throwing water balloons, stealing paper from a recycling bin and play-fighting with a friend.

Who Am I?

If I can just help somebody my living will not have been in vain.

“I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”- Elie Weisel

There are so many folks who are afraid to talk about “RACE Relations” so some of the information here may not be what you want to read however you have options and I will let you figure out what they are. I don’t make the news, I just report it. I don’t make up rumors, I just share them. I don’t discriminate when it comes to holding black, brown, white and other folks accountable for their actions. I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest in what is going on around me. I also ask that others hold me accountable for my actions.

My goal is to promote black and brown folks because all black and brown folks are not on drugs, in jail, unemployed nor on welfare. The majority of us are intelligent, hard working, God-fearing and productive citizens. Those of us who are not caught up in the system were all of this and then some long before the first black President Barack Obama became our 44th President of these United States so don’t get it twisted. So in other words do not think that “Race Relations” is no longer needed because in my opinion we need it more today than ever before.

There are many folks who are not of color who do not want to accept our new President. This means that our generation will have to pick up from where the generations before us left off.

I challenge all black and brown individuals, elected officials, churches, sororities, fraternities and other organizations to get involved in making a difference in our communities.

Ignant Column: In Response To An Educational Moment: To Racist White Folks & Safe Negroes Rev. Andre Knight Rocky Mount City Councilman/President NAACP Is A Citizen/Mayor Pro-tem

Ignant if I was not carrying a tune your ignant ass would not be responding to me. Now that is too ignant! Ignant I have a damn blog and post on it daily so the center of attention thingy is too ignant as well.

Ignant do not worry about what kind of life I live because my life does not have a damn thing to do with you. You don’t know me and I don’t know you so how ignant of you to try to make assumptions about me. But that is okay because that is what I have learned about Ignant Racist Ass White Folks And Ignant Ass Safe Negroes when I make some noise ya’ll show just how ignant ya’ll are trying to make the issue about me. This is not about me but I am on it because I am not your average Black Man. I have no problem with talking about RACISM and calling out IRWF and IRSN.

My comments about ya’ll ignant conversation about Rev. Mayor Pro-tem President Andre Knight has nothing to do with the betterment of Rocky Mount. I have been actively engaged in Rocky Mount politics dating back to the early 90’s attending and speaking to the Rocky Mount City Council and co-hosting meetings in Rocky Mount. I have family, friends and enemies in Rocky Mount and even the enemies have benefited and will continue to benefit from my speaking Truth to Power as it relates to Rocky Mount. Go down and read the public meetings dating back to the Rocky Mount City Council meetings because my addressing the City Council is there. 

Ignant I am not defending Mayor Pro-tem Knight he can defend himself. I was not at the meeting and he handled his own as he has done over the years and will continue to do.

Ignant I ain’t going to address your ignant ass when it comes to Knight paying taxes.

I don’t think of myself as being Superior to anyone but what you need to understand is that I ain’t the one. I am not afraid to address you, Ignant Racist Ass White Folks and/or Ignant Ass Safe Negroes. I do it regularly.

I have no problem with having stones thrown at me but your ignant ass better come correct because I will DEFEND myself. I repeat DEFEND myself because I am in control of me and will not allow IARWF and IASN to define who I am without addressing them.

Oh hell yeah I learned a long time ago that I am problem when to IARWF and IASN because I should not speak until spoken to, that I need to shut the hell up and whatever else at their request. Oh hell no I ain’t the one.

Ignant what the hell are you talking about me alone? Not! I speak for many so don’t attempt to mislead folks because again you don’t know me and I don’t know you.

Who in the hell are to think you get to tell Knight and other black folks are responsible for kids killing kids? How ignant? What is your ignant ass doing in the white community because I read about white crime on a daily basis as well even on Fighting Crime and Cleaning Up Rocky Mount as they post the jailbirds and others. You are just too damn ignant!

You damn right I am contributing oh-so positively. Oh hell no don’t go there about hate and intolerance because I don’t hate Ignant Ass Racist White Folks and Ignant Ass Safe Negroes, I feed off of their asses. You see am the world most talked about The Political Agitator and I am damn good at what I do. I agitate ya’ll assess enough to the point where you take the time to follow my blog and not only follow but to read it word for word and then respond. For that I LOVE YOU my friend.

I am Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator and you have been agitated because I speak Truth to Power!

"I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!"

Now Run And Tell That! IGNANT! In my Steve Harvey’s Voice.

Yes Column! PowerSchool Parent Portal Edgecombe County Public Schools Awesome!

Last week I attended the session for the Introduction of the PowerSchool Parent Portal and I found the resource to be “Awesome! Awesome! And Mo Awesome!”

First of all we assembled in the SouthWest Edgecombe Multi-Purpose room and we heard a presentation from Cummins Diesel Inc. in Whitakers NC informing us of a partnership with the Edgecombe County Public Schools for students to enroll at Edgecombe Community College whereby students can take classes and work a couple of hours a week at their company. That was awesome and very interesting aslo.

Afterwards we heard a presentation about the PowerSchool Parent Portal. We moved into the library and were given individual computers. We created an account that we can open up from any computer anywhere. The account allows parents to see all of their child classes, their assignments for each class, their individual assignments grades, and their final grades. You can find out if your child are missing classes or if they have been acting up class.

You can send and receive messages to and from teachers. All teachers should be entering grades on a regularly, weekly basis. If you have questions or concerns with your child’s grades, please feel free to contact their teachers at school.

All parents if you have not signed up for the PowerSchool Parent Portal you don’t know what you are missing. I love it.

 

Ignant Column: Florida House Republican Candidate Calls for Obama to be Executed

Response: Where this Ignant Ass Safe Negro come from? Damn did he think they were going to agree with him? Tried to justify it with the bible. But said he would not apologize, well he don’t need to because his moment of fame is going away soon because he will be ignored by Republicans and others.

The Right is no stranger to extremist views against President Obama. It is not very often, however, that one of those Republicans are a candidate for higher office and call for President Obama to be executed for treason.  That is exactly what one wannabe GOP candidate is saying, and he is refusing to back down from his statement.

Joshua Black, 31, from Florida’s 68th district has sent out a tweet calling for President Obama to be hung for treason against the United States.  On Mr. Black’s Twitter page, he said, (Source)
