Dr. Umar Johnson On Education And Black Children

007_1000This is a powerful interview on what happens in the school community that every parent must hear. He explains the process as to why black kids are labeled, put on medicine, and put in Special Ed, which he calls a conspiracy. POWERFUL!!!

Dr. Johnson says “Politically-speaking, keeping Black boys from having a gambler’s chance at a decent life in this country seems to have become a fetish of the American social order,” he said. “As states scramble to find more dollars to incarcerate young Black males, a quiet but very powerful sense of hopelessness is settling in amongst the Black boy population in America.”

Johnson says if the Black community wants to “reverse the special education, ADHD, psychotropic drug, juvenile incarceration and premature extermination wars against Black boys. Then we will have to build schools that are uniquely designed to teach Black boys…how to avoid the trappings of a racist criminal justice system.” Johnson believes the boys who attend this school will see a much brighter outcome.
