Is your child’s education important? I think most, if not all people would say yes. Do you know what your children are being taught in school? What do you believe the role of the school is in teaching your kids values as opposed to what the role of the family is in teaching values? These are questions we all need to be asking and in this week’s episode, I interview Dr. Elana Fishbein, and we dive in to one of today’s greatest problems when it comes to the education of our children. This is an unbelievably important episode you’re not going to want to miss!
Episode 44: Faith, Family & Education: A Movement Towards a Resurrection… Interview with Kendall Qualls of Take Charge Minnesota
Kendall Qualls, president of Take Charge Minnesota, knows the American Dream is possible for EVERYONE, regardless of race. In this interview, Kendall and I discuss how “Critical Race Theory” is nothing but a way for those seeking power to divide, while Take Charge Minnesota has a better goal. Rebuilding and resurrecting the American Black Family through Faith, Family and Education.
There will come a time, when good people who just want to be left alone are forced to take a stand. I want to be real clear, I don’t mean “Take a Stand” in a physical fight kind of way, and I pray it does not come to that, but I mean Take a Stand in the sense that people who just want to be left alone to do their own thing and live their own life in peace are going to have to get involved because the tyranny of the majority continues to become more emboldened in forcing their will upon those with whom they disagree.
There are many things we can teach our children, lessons we can pass on in effort to make them better people. There are 10 lessons that I have learned, many the hard way, but 10 lessons that I will pass on to my children that I know will make them better people and in turn make the world a better place.
There is a lot about us as individuals that make us unique, and it’s always better to get the whole story before passing judgement on others. You cannot always assume based on preconceived notions about the way one dresses, the job one has, or the ideologies or religion one follows that you know everything about someone. Be careful who you judge and why, because it just may be your own house you’re shattering with the stones you’re throwing…
Wilk here and again, Don’t hate the haters. One of the biggest battles I have to face personally is not allowing myself to hate those who are constantly trying to project their hate on others, or in my case, me. This is a battle we all must face because if you allow yourself to hate, soon that toxic hole within the souls of the real haters will develop within you. Check out episode 40 for more about this.
Unity for some these days means something totally different than what I think it means. Some call for UNITY, but what they are really calling for is for those with whom they disagree to conform. And if they do not conform, well then the non-conformists are the agitators and must be villainized, demonized and destroyed by whatever means possible, because of course, it’s their fault for not conforming in the name of “UNITY”.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, and it won’t be the last time I say it. I don’t want and won’t make this a podcast about politics, but the events that are happening in the nation’s capitol today, January 6, 2021 cannot be ignored. Our nation is in a lot of pain and I’m afraid it’s going to get worse if we as individuals don’t start to do something about it. What is the Great Divide that I refer to? It’s not race, class, gender or ethnicity, The Great Divide in this country is politics.
The year 2020 has presented all of us with many challenges, some more than others. Some have lost their lives, some have lost loved ones, some have lost livelihoods and some have lost everything they have worked their whole lives to build. Many say “Happy New Year” and it’s just a statement. I want everyone to say “Happy New Year” and have it be their mission statement for 2021. The best way to battle Hate is to be Happy because the Happy aren’t Hateful and the Hateful aren’t Happy!
