Letter to Generation Y

Professor Leonard McCoy is a faculty member at Savannah State University, a historical black college/university (HBCU) in Georgia. He is also an emergent scholar, a brilliant critical thinker and one of the most dispassionate, logical-minded men I’ve ever met. During my short tenure at SSU (2008-09) professor McCoy and I put on eight symposiums and participated in about four or five others.

Below are some critical-thinking techniques I used to rescue my dear friend’s son, Rashaan Thompson, a talented college freshman who got into some trouble recently hanging with the wrong crowd – strategies to help him get back on the right academic and intellectual track, to get back into college, to fulfill his God-ordained destiny using the self-help tactics and logical strategies of that great black conservative intellectual Booker T. Washington (1856-1915).

  1. I liked the last paragraph that you wrote very much. Generation (and this country) is really on the verge of abysmal failure and mediocrity. One can make the argument that we are already there and the task now is to reverse and recover from this great disaster.

    The solution is in education and culture, not in politics. We need a canon which celbrates our Judeo-Christian roots, hard work and the capitalist limited government ethic. In other words we need to bring to academia and the establishment in America fundamental transformation because the result of the prevailing un-American socialist indoctrination and recruiting system that passes itself off as progressive and productive has been very much the opposite.
