This lecture has been saved on my watch later list for years, maybe over 4. I’ve watched it multiple times and I’ve decided to start sharing some of my independent scholarly works including my scholarly work as a member of the City Colleges of Chicago and Governors State University. My independent works satisfy me more because it’s aligned with my passion.

We need to know (blacks, poor, indigenous peoples, etc.) that no one is coming to save us and we need to prepare those coming behind us for the real true world, and not the ideal world they teach us we will graduate into as we fake climb the ladder of success in capitalism and public systems.

Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. Please share this lecture with your people, they need to hear this.
