racism and underclass system designs - open space

extract from baltimore-and virtually hosted discussion

Agreeing with Don.
Chris you could not be racist if you tried.
As usual you share a brilliant idea ahead of its time, to have an open discussion across the blue and red divide.
Is it a coincidence that I posted this line of thinking today - the notion of a World Peace Cafe created and operates by McDonald's or similar global powerhouse brand 

Happy Sunday all

I've been involved in dealing with racial matters for over 50 years. My 65 trips to South Africa were part of my search for the deep
divides..from a historical perspective.  You can track that journey in my book The Crucible: Forging South Africa's future.
Just as the REAL issues in the Middle East are not about religion; the prime elements around "race" are NOT about race.
I have more than 35 books in my library about all of this. This will be a major issue in the 50th Super Bowl. I am very close to the NFL 
and sports: was a team psychologist with the New Orleans Saints when Bum Phillips was head coach. Learned a lot from Bum.
Need to understand how the patterns of emergence shape the maturing levels in groups.  Am looking at the 47th Annual NAACP Image
Awards announcement.. Nothing but Orange, 5th level materialism.

In short, our understanding of the key value systems is faulted to the core.

 2 reasonings i wanted to share with you

1 Me: I am no saint. I expect racism lurks in me. I tell you what I mean. My first girl friend on my first trip to america was mugged. It was of course my fault. We had enjoyed a great time in various cities. The last one was Philadelphia city of brotherly love. There was so much to see in the 2 hour coach tour's dropoff- so i left my girl on one side of a square photographing something with the big clunky canon camera and lenses you used in those days while i wandered on an opposite side. Thats how she got mugged. So for about 30 years my kind of racism was simply not to go in into a harlem. I mean I could walk around a city like dhaka in bangladesh but i would never in a harlem. Oddly when in 2008 february yunus was telling 2000 people in new york of the coming sub-prime crisis the only places peter, spencer and i could find in new york ready to debate this were in harlem and the bronx

2 But what i urgently want to ask you is how did the whole historically black university system -from Tuskegee to Baltimore - fail to control/mediate social business yunus enough to free 20000 black university students attending the greatest youth collaboration entrepreneur competition the states had seen atlanta nov 2015- chaired by nobel peace laureates, club of rome, ted turner, jimmy carter, the king family, rosa parks lawyer ... It seems to me to be the same question as to why hasnt the extremes of black youth loss of hope been improved under 8 years of obama's adminstration. But I am only left to make an old white european man's guess

Probably almost every sentence in this mail could be quoted out of context as politically incorrect -my freedom of speech error nobody else circulated -  but when you have someone like Trump running for president what is PC anyhow? Why in 2016 do we passively listen to such politicians and their big-money-rotting mass media. Why not interactively ask every university to host an open space between democratic and republican youth all on the same hackathon weekend and just see if that changes something. And if such an annual open assembly -empowered by some youth-public-private partnership of khan academies and weekly tedx salons -   became more popular than superbowl weekend (or soccer's world cup of frauds), then amen.

Naturally finding a gutsy young lady to mediate such an event might be a bit tricky too

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:

Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?

Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race.  Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?

POP -Preferential Option Poor

Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.

What would be the top 50 MOOCS that freed access  of action learning of sustainability goals as worldwide youth's most joyful collaboration through way above zero-sum models of wporldsocialtrade?
