Why Do White and Black Males Have Different Dreams?

Why Do White and Black Males Have Different Dreams?

If you desire to understand what motivates a person to behave in a certain manner, simply listen to him or her talk about his or her dream (s). A dream is a state of mind characterized by abstract thinking and release from reality. White and Black males have different dreams because we live in an unjust and racist society that reminds us that we are different. White and Black males are not different from a Godly perspective, but our dreams and lifestyles are manifestations of our circumstances. The right to prosper, to be treated civilly, to be protected and to feel safe should be extended to all human beings, regardless of their appearance, race, background or economic, social or financial status.

What is Grace?

What is Grace?

Back in the 1990’s, I discovered that there were teens on the streets of my town who didn’t have a legal place to sleep. There was no youth shelter, and no long term housing for young people under 18 who were away from their parents and not part of foster care. In many states, including California, women’s shelters didn’t allow boys over 16, so often abused and homeless women would have to choose between shelter for themselves and younger children and caring for their teen boys. I didn’t feel comfortable living in a community where there wasn’t a legal place for a child to be if they wanted to be, so I decided to work to create a program that could provide the missing services.

True Freedom: None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds

True Freedom: None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds

In celebration, honor and recognition of Independence Day, it seemed appropriate to write about none other than “freedom”. Now, freedom is a concept that can mean many different things to many different people. One might consider freedom only in the context of nations, war, government and politics. Others might narrow it down a bit further to a persona level and say that freedom is in fact a state of mind and that true freedom involves taking full responsibility over the choices you make in your life.

Project Censored #25: “Chaptered Out”: US Military Seeks to Balance Budget on Backs of Disabled Veterans”

The US military has been engaged in a policy of forcing wounded and disabled veterans out of service to avoid paying benefits and to make room for new able-bodied recruits. Identifying injured combat soldiers as delinquent and negligent has lead to a practice called “chaptering out” which results in those soldiers being forced to leave the military without an honorable discharge. Because of this, thousands of soldiers have been chaptered out, losing federally sponsored benefits including health care, unemployment, and educational programs.
