           The New Normal?

While the nation tries to shake itself free from a natural crisis which has claimed in excess of 100,000 lives, we will have to come to grips with the realization that until we have a vaccine for Covid-19; we are going to have to learn how to live in a new “Normal”. That means people of color, because of our socio-economic situation, will have to be especially careful if we want not to fall ill to this virus. So now,in addition to Covid-19, we are still grappling with that same old, four hundred years old problem of racism. “We” know its ALWAYS been there. Its been cleaned-up, polished-up, and "lurking"in the “Down Low”; but we knew! When other folk talk about having “That Talk” with their son’s; “That Talk” takes on a whole new dimension with "Our Folk”. True, video has, indeed, been somewhat of a “Game Changer”. But even with video, equal treatment is still not a “Slam Dunk” for us. I absolutely hate the “rioting", "burning", and destruction of other people’s property that is going on. It pained me to see a Black business owner, with tears running down his cheeks, watch is life savings go up in flames! While we may live in the Villages or comparable nearby communities, we know that we are not that far removed from those neighborhoods. Most of us were raised in those neighborhoods. The great separator for everyone is education; and here again access is unequal. Education is the key to a truly New Normal.

                                                 THIS IS WHY WE PAY IT FORWARD WITH OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM...
