THE RED PILL

DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE

 

Mr. Black’s program was a life-changing experience for me. I started in the program when I was in middle school and continued through high school even though I went away from home to a boarding school. Mr. Black’s program taught me how to think in a way I would never have learned in a traditional school environment. I credit the experiences from the classes with helping me excel on the ACT, SAT, as well as the GRE. There was lots of practical knowledge as well as experiences and lessons that made me think outside the box. Additionally, the whole process built up my confidence in my abilities as a student. Once I’d “mastered” the art of his teaching style I felt capable of learning anything. I was not intimidated when I was in challenging classes while matriculating for my BS at Tuskegee University, my Masters at Duke University or my Ph.D. at North Carolina State University. I am indebted to Mr. Black and his amazing program for contributing to my success as a research scientist today!

I am inspired. I am now having my 13 yr old daughter read this as well!

That is an inspiration and you are one of the long list of young people who listened and did the work. It just takes adults a lot loner because they have so much nonsense imbedded they have to clear it out in order to really start the learning process. A does not mean apple.

 

Peace God
