Homeschool Lesson Of The Week: Dr. Harry Edwards Talks Trump, Kap and Scholarly-Activism

Dr. Harry Edwards is in the Edge of Sports house!

Malcolm is gone. MLK is gone. Ali is gone.

But a man who deserves to be right up there with them in my opinion (as he is one of my never-met-mentors) can be heard below on the Edge of Sports with Dave Zirin.

While this is one of Dr. Edward’s shorter interviews on the Edge of Sports, the fire is just as fierce and one I recommend having the kids sit down and listen to if you are wondering:

“What do I tell them about this country after the election?”

“How should we look at today and tomorrow?”

“Does it really matter if you vote or not?”

This is a terrific homeschool lesson for kids 10 and up who can have a bit of an understanding and really know who Colin Kaepernick is and the controversy and conversation surrounding his stance on standing for the so-called National Anthem. Dr. Edwards even gives his opinion on whether he thinks Kap was correct by not voting and stating his position publicly.

If you use this lesson for History, Sociology, Psychology, Civics or anything else, definitely let us know we would love to hear the kind of questions the kids asked and where the conversation went.

In many homes, there was lamenting, shock, and awe. But may I encourage us all to take this opportunity to gather the family together and come up with a strategy on how to navigate over the next four to eight years. Neely Fuller gives nine areas of activity that make a perfect starting point for the discussion. A family strategy in these areas will go a long way towards making your family “politic proof”. Mental freedom isn’t given by the White House, but in Our House.

1. Economics
2. Education
3. Entertainment
4. Labor
5. Law
6. Politics
7. Religion
8. Sex
9. War/Counter-War

Frances Cress Welsing passed away Jan. 2016, but she lived just long enough to understand what was going down. Which is why I’m baffled as to why some are shocked. She understood how real race-baiting goes down.

Evangelicals are now talking prayer and unity. But please know, that if you research the so-called evangelical church in America, one group, and it wasn’t the “black-side”, was more than happy with the divide. This is why as a group the majority was in support of (as they point out with abortion, silence, is support) Jim Crow segregation, the KKK, segregated churches, institutional racism, sexism, etc..

Sadly, it would have made my heart glad to see evangelicals not support either candidate and I would have had respect for that decision. But I have to wonder, since we like to say, “lesser of two evils”, if the decision was between the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet, which do you choose? After Tuesday, all of the Left Behind Pre-Trib loving folks seemed to just “take the mark”, letting an evil system (logically, how can you have evil choices but a good system?) dictate their choices, something I’m sure they claim they’d never do.
