Written By Award Winning Entrepreneur Chuck Starks

The latest NCAA Ruling (backed by the Supreme Court) that allows student athletes to receive money for their image and likeness will change the financial prospects of many Black families in America within a very short period of time.

Since students can get paid directly from sponsors, schools and others, that income will translate into an increase in the median net worth of Black people as a whole.  

Most Black families have one or more athletes in their family.  

Sports is what we do.  

Black Americans are the best in the world and we excel in sports at a younger age.  I estimate that students as young as 12 years old will start receiving a monthly sponsorship (income) from schools, major sporting goods companies (Nike, New Balance, Adidas, etc.) as well as money from sports agents who will pay them for a first-right-of-refusal to represent them in the future if they go pro.

Senator James Sanders Jr. Condemns Border Guard Use of Whip on Haitian Migrants
From The Office Of State Senator James Sanders

State Senator James Sanders
State Senator James Sanders Jr. said: “I am disgusted and appalled by the video footage showing Border Patrol whipping their reigns at Haitian migrants near the U.S. Mexico border, a clear violation of human rights and domestic and international law.

The last time we saw white men whipping black people in such a public horrendous fashion was during the Jim Crow era and the subsequent separation and dehumanization that followed. Later during the first half of the twentieth century, blacks were separated from whites in ghettos to control their growing population in what is considered American Apartheid. Now, not much has not changed. The images are very much the same.

The actions on that video U.S. Mexico border was not an example of how Americans, particularly those in power, should treat their fellow human beings.

ROSA HIGGS REPORTEDLY IS 1ST BLACK AUTHOR TO CREATE PHONICS WORKBOOKS THAT DRASTICALLY IMPROVE READING SKILLS IN 30 DAYS OR LESS

Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.  To order Click Here
