R E S P E C T

The disrespect that some of our black youths have for those black adults who choose to educate them is absolutely appalling. I refuse to show that video of the violent classroom encounter that occurred in a Milwaukee, Wisconsin classroom yesterday, between this black young man and his black male teacher.
 
I just felt sad that our black community has evolved into this level of disrespect between elder and learner. Our young blacks seemingly have lost any perspectives regarding the black people's struggle in America. We have endured for 4 centuries of intense disrespect and neglect from those in power.
 
Please pick up a book, learn to read, learn to research and acquire some much-needed human consciousness young brother. We as a people cannot, or will not, gain any measure or level of progress unless we can develop some measure of respect for ourselves and for respect for others.
