If You Don’t We Do

Chicago has had more than 4,000 shootings so far this year and 700 plus murders, mostly young Black men shooting and killing other young Black men. During the month of December 2016, these Chicago schools are asking for mentors to come speak life into their students and to share about the positive aspects of living in Chicago:

Oglesby Elementary School, Fulton Elementary School, Proviso West High School, Brunson Elementary School, Clissold Elementary School, Chatham Leadership Academy High School, Lewis Elementary School, Air Force Academy High School, Joplin Elementary School, Burnham Elementary School, Reavis Elementary School, G.R. Clark Elementary School, Lakeside High School, Chopin Elementary School, Excel Academy Shore Shore/Woodlawn High School, Langford Academy Elementary School.

Social Media is NOT the cause of the fights in school and anyone who thinks so needs to be either re-educated or leave the institutions of Academia and make room for folks who are not afraid of the “Boards” and are willing to go the distance to ensure our students receive a full education in a safe environment.  For the love of Christ stop bailing out behind “it the fault of some other platform”!
