America fails to confront the real problem of race

This is a challenge to America to recognize its race problem by examining its present-day perceptions, language, and behavior.

Race is the stigma of color classification by using descriptive adjectives as "black, brown, red, white and yellow" on all the inhabitants of the earth. This is done to divide the people of the earth into "races" and promote disharmony between the nations. The offshoot of this is racism. It is the negative relations between people of verious colors - black, red and yellow - which resulted from negative definitions and connotations attached to these colors by those who, at one time, had the power to define people, things, places, history as they saw fit.

The doctrine of white superiority began with the "noble" connotation of superiority and honor attached to "white." Racism began with these words, they set the tone for past, present and future race relations. Anyone using these doctrines are still under the influence or control of "white superiority."

It will take a rebirth, a casting down of all doctrines, philosophies, ideologies, etc. of that old world order. That is the prerequisite to be reconnected with Yah (born again), and redeemed from the distresses or harm that is detrimental to us as a people. Truth and discipline are the essential prescriptions for our spiritual and physical regeneration (rebirth).

Satan, the devil, the master deceiver is the force of evil, wickedness, death, hatred of Yah and fellowman. He is the epitome of all things negative and destructive. These vile thoughts manifest themselves in the thoughts and actions of men, thus the spiritual force behind all things evil.

Righteousness is that which is based upon and sustained by right, results relative to righteousness and pleasing unto Yah. The Prophetic Truth of Yah gives us the ability to discern, in accordance with the guidelines and criteria of Yah. Ultimately, we receive the sacred right to declare the fundamental principles of right and wrong.

There are only two races of people, those who are right (keep the Torah, Statues and Commandments of Yah), and those who are wrong (evil) by following the instructions of satan, the force of evil. If a person, never hearing of the Torah, actions comply with the righteousness of Yah - they are righteous in that extent. A person who claim to be "righteous" but whos' actions conform to the forces of evil, to that extent - they are "wrong." Skin color and place of orgin do not matter, only the Truth of Yah and the obedience to His Divine Instructions, makes one Righteous.

Editorial Reviews

"The beauty of this volume is that it is designed to help lay people―teachers, administrators, parents, community leaders, and even university professors―begin to engage in the emotionally and psychically difficult conversations about race. Glenn Singleton and Curtis Linton have offered us an important book that provides us with empirical data and well-constructed exercises to help us think through the ways that race affects our lives and our professional practices. My sincere desire is that after you have had an opportunity to read this volume you will, indeed, engage in some courageous conversations about race." (Gloria Ladson-Billings, Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison 2005-03-07)

"Challenges educators to talk in honest and open ways about race, and provides various tools to stimulate and inform the conversation. Singleton and Linton remind us that the achievement gap will not be eliminated until we learn to talk about race in ways that build bridges of understanding that lead to effective action." (Dennis Sparks, Executive Director 2005-08-09)

"Given the sensitive issues of race in our nation, schools and school leaders need tools that can illuminate the concerns, guide the discussions, and generate momentum for growth and change. This book provides the tools and resources needed to move from open dialogue to meaningful action that can make excellence and equity in schools a reality." (Monte C. Moses, Superintendent 2005-08-12)

"Talking about race and its effect on academic achievement remains one of the most elusive conversations today. In their new book, Singleton and Linton help educators understand and engage in the discourse around race that affects the success of any curriculum, instructional methodology, or program implementation. The book's exercises and prompts assists school and district leadership teams in articulating those innate behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes that impair our ability to be effective in closing the racial achievement gap. I am encouraged to know that educators will be empowered and supported as we develop our personal capacity to address one of the most crucial elements of our society: the education of our children." (Yvette M. Irving, Principal 2005-09-06)

"This is an important book that challenges one to think critically about the effects of race and student achievement. It is an invitation to sustain a strong desire for fairness and equity for all children." (SMSG Newsletter 2005-12-29)

"In an era when America seems content to sweep candid talk of race under the rug, Courageous Conversations About Race recognizes that denial isn’t a prescription for interracial tolerance and social progress. The authors provide thoughtful educators with innovative instructional tools to successfully navigate the most robustly diverse nation on earth." (Hugh B. Price, Former President and CEO 2006-01-05)

"Singleton and Linton challenge educators to move beyond recognizing the existence of a racial achievement gap and to develop strategies to eliminate it." (Curriculum Connections, Fall 2006)
