There are four teams that we all should learn teamwork for and from. #1: Family, #2: School, #3 Social network, #4: Employers.
The success of each team is dependent upon the impact of the former team. Has your family failed you, or are you failing your family?
As we fill out an employment application or hand over our resume it is a question that we ask, “May I join your team?” Yet the gatekeepers have a particular type of person they are looking for in each available position. If they are looking for a running back and you are slow… If they are looking for a Center and you are short… If they are looking for a person with a bubbly people person personality, and you are a introverted tech person…
Hey everybody, as you may know, with the support of my loving wife I’ve been running my non-profit “Black Family United” for a number of years. I’m now able to pay her back with support of her new family therapy firm.

Check us out and join our first event on March 26, 2016. Power Couple serves a social network of couples who are willing to think outside of the box to get extraordinary results within their relationships.
Racism is arguably a very significant problem in America, yet some people deny its existence or impact.
The study of the existence of racism is a sociological conversation. Yet the answer to racism in America does not exist within the field of sociology. The discussion may lie with political pundits, yet the answer is not within political science. Economics is the leading cause of racism, yet correcting economics will not end racism. This is why a person’s economic status does not resolve his exposure to racist activities.
Sociology studies what is happening and why. Political science is the game of power grabbing. Economics is the study of how society accumulates and distributes its scarce resources, and in America there is a positive correlation between being Black and being poor. Yet knowing Black history will not change the future of racism. The real answer to racism is within the field of psychology. The Psychology of the 310 million American minds is where the answers are.
So what is the psychology of racism?
1867 to 1965 The slave system was replaced by Jim Crow laws which limited Negro’s opportunities to grow financially by way of institutional lock-out of prerequisite assets and knowledge.
Prior to slavery, African tribal warfare and intertribal indifference was exploited as Africans captured other Africans and offered them to European slave traders at the coast of Africa. On these slave ships were hundreds of Africans who were not Africans by “Nationality.” To the contrary, they were a variety of country/tribal persons with vast differences in cultures and beliefs. They may have united given their common servitude, or they may have been mortal enemies throughout their lifetimes regardless of their captivity.
Slavery in the Americas created a cast / class society where rich were at the top, poor were below, and slaves were at the very bottom. To avoid a poor revolt which would include slaves and poor citizens, the powers that be decided to reinforce the class system and give poor whites authority over slaves. By giving some power to poor whites and allowing them the right to take their anger out on slaves, they empowered them and also broke any possibility of unity between poor whites and blacks at the bottom with plans to turn against the rich.
I don’t really feel it is my current job to teach you that racism exist. The main reason for that is two fold. Firstly, if you don’t know it exists by now, there is nothing I can do or say that will make you change your mind. Secondly, if you do feel as if racism does not exist, and thing everyone who believes they feel oppressed is crazy, that mere thought process is evidence to the fact.
