Code Red by Pastor Dr. Nahshon Nicks
In order for the Black Community to compete as a Collective on a local, national, and global level we must have Rapid Environmental Development, Rapid Educational Development, & Rapid Economic Development.
Toxic mold, gas leaks, inadequate security and surveillance make it tough for those that live in the urban sectors of our city.
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) was the main law for K–12 general education in the United States from 2002–2015. The law held schools accountable for how kids learned and achieved. The law was controversial in part because it penalized schools that didn't show improvement, which ushers in the IEP and the intellectually disability.
Our problem is not the way it was stated but the way it was implemented. S.W.A. State White Average compared to the Black/ African American average are like night and day for standardized high school diplomas. We don't want our youth to have a comparative education we need them to have a competitive education.
We have a President that beats his chess about taking back communities with military force that have been underserved, underprivileged, underperforming, lied to, broken promises, broken leaders, broken government. My response is that you wouldn't have to take back a community if you were taking care of the community.
Long Term Comprehensive Planning got us in this mess and Long-Term Comprehensive Planning is going to get us out.
We must have (LTSSP) Long Term Systematic Sustainability Policy to help communities of color flourish.
We need to ensure equitable access to land and development to incubate economic success and compete in the global market. Subsidies, Block Grants, CRA's, Investment Grants, Prime and Subprime contracts.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“But I believe as we struggle with these problems, we’ve got to struggle with them with a method that can be militant but at the same time does not destroy life or property. And so our slogan must not be ‘Burn, baby, burn.’ It must be, ‘Build, baby, build.’ ‘Organize, baby, organize.’ Yes, our slogan must be ‘Learn, baby, learn,’ so that we can earn, baby, earn.”
