Children, Memes, and Obama: Mississippi Public School Named After Confederate Will Be Renamed After Barack Obama @balleralert Mississippi Public School Named After Confederate Will Be Renamed After Barack Obama-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A public school in Mississippi, that was previously named after Confederate Jefferson Davis, will now be renamed in honor of former president BarackObama. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the reports, the Jackson School Board of Trustees voted earlier this month to change Davis Magnet IB to Barack Obama Magnet IB. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "Jefferson Davis, although infamous in his own right, would probably not be too happy about a diverse school promoting the education of the very individuals he fought to keep enslaved being named after him,” said PTA President Janelle Jefferson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the stats from 2017 enrollment, 97% of the school's students are black. Jefferson said the name change is a way to honor someone that "fully represents ideals and public stances consistent with what we want our children to believe about themselves.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The new name of the institution will go into effect for the 2018-19 school year. Before making the transition, the school’s partners must first raise funds to support the name change.

Alive, Children, and Family: Let's Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? @balleralert Let’s Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You would think that in 2017, the slave mentality of some people wouldn’t be present. Well, guess what? It’s here and it’s up to us to stand up for our rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can protest as much as we like but there are some people in this society that don’t give a damn how blacks feel. Everyday we are constantly reminded that our opinions don’t have any type of substance and we are tired. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many black people that are in higher positions that have a platform to stand up for us as a whole but refuse to do so. I’m sick and tired of hearing, “I don’t want to lose my sponsors” or “This is my job and I have to do what I’m told.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is pure BS! That’s slave mentality. You like being mistreated by “the people” at the top. Our ancestors did not care whether they had a job to fulfill or not. They spoke up every chance they got and we must do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We cannot let this celebrity in chief continue to degrade us and treating this country as a damn dictatorship. This country is supposed to be moving forward but we keep getting knocked backwards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have a platform speak up. Your children, significant others, and family are looking up to you for guidance and support. Don’t let them down by being silent. Speak the hell up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let us continue to be degraded on a daily basis because of the color of our skin. Our ancestors fought for our freedom and we must continue to keep the legacy and hope alive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are counting on you, so do what’s right. Stop thinking with your wallet and start thinking about how your boss only sees you as “his slave.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

America, Children, and Fall: Girls Can Now Join Boy Scouts of America @balleralert Girls Can Now Join Boy Scouts of America-Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's official, girls will now be allowed to join Boy Scouts of America. This unanimous decision made by the board will also create the opportunity for older girls to earn the highest honor of being an Eagle Scout. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday the organization said, "The historic decision comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls," Boy Scouts of America said in a statement. "[T]he organization evaluated the results of numerous research efforts, gaining input from current members and leaders, as well as parents and girls who've never been involved in Scouting - to understand how to offer families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With families dealing with more hectic schedules than ever before, BSA says the goal is to also help out parents and their busy lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a statement BSA said, "Families today are busier and more diverse than ever. Most are dual-earners and there are more single-parent households than ever before, making convenient programs that serve the whole family more appealing." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those who say, "Well, there's Girls Scouts," this is true. However, the highest honor you can receive is the "Gold Award" which isn't as notable as BSA's Eagle Scout title. In addition, being an Eagle Scout can provide long-term advantages professionally and educationally.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The big news just so happened to fall on International Day of the Girl, which celebrates and prompts the conversation of equal opportunities for young women around the world.

Children, Community, and Espn: Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC @balleralert Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA legend, MichaelJordan, is donating $7 million to fund the launch of two medical clinics in North Carolina. The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which will be built in north and northwest Charlotte, will be one of the largest gifts ever from the superstar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community,” Jordan said in a release on Monday. “It is my hope that these clinics will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A spokesperson for the NBA great spoke with The Associated Press, on Monday, to further discuss the donation. He said Jordan “feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the Charlotte Observer, the project came about after Jordan learned of a “2014 study from Harvard and the University of California at Berkeley that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big U.S. city to life themselves out of poverty,” Jordan’s spokesperson revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate we’ve done with the Hornets.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two clinics are expected to care for nearly “35,000 children and adults who don’t have access to primary or preventative care,” projected to open in 2020. According to ESPN, the clinics will allow patients to receive “affordable, high-quality care.” They could also limit emergency room utilization, and decrease hospitalization for residents in the Charlotte area. ballerificcharity
