"The Talk." If you're part of a Black family, you've likely experienced it in some way no matter your generation. For some families, "The Talk" has changed over time. And their journeys are moving them, and others, forward, in unexpected ways. When she becomes a doctor, Najaha Musse said she wants to focus on social justice. Musse is a medical school student and mother of two boys, both under 10. Musse said, "I have multiple conversations with my two young sons, two Black sons, about racism and systemic injustices...

How about THE TALK that says Stay in school and graduate You don't need a college degree. The world runs on diesel and diesel mechanics do just fine If you're a Baby Daddy it's time to start being a Father and NO white people are not out to get you but they have a low threshold for BS.

Does that mama tell her kids about how it is the Democrat party that is the source of that racism of which she ignorantly talks about? About how the Klan, slavery, Jim Crow/segregation, voting tests they could not pass, and refusal to grant civil rights and the LBJ destruction of black families all comes from the Democrats? Maybe she needs to sit and meditate on how abortion has been the genocide of her community, and it was all started by an evil Leftist named Margaret Sanger. Blaming all the problems of the black community on everyone else is why racism in democrat form is never ever going to go away. Not until the black community firmly denounces democrats and all they stand for.

I find it odd that Black parents telling their children how to be respectful should they encounter police is considered a 'Black thing'. I pretty much got the same instructions from my White parents as well as teachers and driving instructors. The key here is: TAKE that advise! Maybe White kids just listen better.

When she becomes a doctor, she wants to focus on social justice. If that's what you want, why go to medical school. Obozo wants social justice too, but at least he didn't take a coveted place in medical school to specialize in it. I wonder what person who really wants to study medicine that benefits everyone won't get into medical school because of affirmative action entrance policies for people who want to focus on social justice?

So much talk about "The Talk" like white parents don't talk to their kids about be respectful of police and authority, know your rights but do what they say within the law do.not be belligerent or rude with authority don't be a criminal graduate HS get an education that insures employment, preferably recession proof employment like many trades don't have babies outside marriage don't get into debt and don't marry a girl who is, her debt becomes yours We have preached all this to our son since he was old enough to understand it.

If every white person on Earth disappeared today, it would still not make any difference at all in the thousands of black-on-black killings, and hundreds of thousands of black-on-black crimes that happen every year. It would not stop the tens of thousands of black babies born out of wedlock every year. It would not change the total disdain that so many blacks have for education and hard work these days. As long as this whole BLM garbage is nothing more than "blame whitey" for everything, it will continue to be useless and evil. When the black community wants to talk about all of their problems -- especially the self-imposed ones -- then something positive might come out of those discussions. For now, though, all the BLM thugs want is undeserved power and undeserved free stuff!!!

Approach education seriously, avoid crime, alcohol and drugs, get married, buy a home and raise a two parent family. When you have accomplished that, we'll have The Talk. I might even hire you. Until that time **** ***.

My father and my driving teacher told me the same thing. One of my brothers has a concealed carry permit with a pistol in the car. When he got stopped a minor traffic violation, he did what the police officer told him to do, and got off with a warning. Respect and politeness pays.

If you start teaching at an early age and drum it in into them that they are a second class citizen subject to discrimination everyday they will observe their lives through that lens and never move on from your imposed victim mentality requiring reparations from the unjust society. That same society that can only provide equal opportunity and not equal results to all citizens regardless of color of origin.

'Kayden said, "I want to go to the Olympics, and then I really just want to see the world change, from now, to see maybe...people don't have to look at us as a threat or as a bad person, and everybody could just be treated fairly."' This is what they're teaching their children? That white people will consider them a threat and bad people and won't treat them fairly? No wonder so many young blacks have so much built-in resentment. They're taught it at their mothers' knees.

Well, I guess the parents of George Floyd (high on drugs, resisting arrest) Michael Brown (after committing a robbery and striking a police officer charged at him) and Rashaad Brooks (fought with arresting officers, stole a stun gun and fired it at police while resisting arrest) never received this "talk" from anyone or if they did chose to ignore it. By the way, any white man (or person of any color) who did these things would have had the same results.

I never heard of it. I don't believe my black family (my "sister" and her family) had such a "talk" . Now, I didn't grow up with them, but I lived with them for years and know the people they were and their views on race. Unfortunately, her boys probably got the "talk" from their hardcore friends. I could see changes in them, especially after my sister died. I wish I could've been there for them more when they were young.

"Due to racism, Black, Indigenous and people of color in Hennepin County statistically have poorer educational outcomes, earn less, and are less likely to own homes or have access to quality health care and jobs than White people," the county said in a statement.

The resolution calls for the county to advocate for policies that, "improves outcomes for Black, Indigenous and communities of color." Through the resolution, the county will also support initiatives that dismantle systemic racism.

The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website.

Kamala Harris Slept Her Way Up

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

At a briefing on Thursday, Joe Biden called for a nationwide mask-wearing mandate “for the next three months at a minimum.” Never mind that such a federal mandate is likely unconstitutional, this is just one of a multitude of areas where Biden, and his running mate Kamala Harris, want to impose the federal government on even the most mundane of actions by Americans. It is surely worth noting, especially by those who claim to value liberty, that Biden and Harris eagerly desire to take much of it away, always in the name of some greater good.
