Former Dallas School Board alumni, Ron Price's "open-minded views" on the situation in Charlottesville, VA.


The Last Four Letters of American Are 'I CAN'

Ron Price, Statesman and former Dallas School Board alumni, shares his views regarding the right to free speech.

 Statesman and former Dallas School Board alumni, Ron Price, spoke to local media yesterday regarding the situation in Charlottesville, VA, and the resulting nationwide racial tensions.  He delivered open-minded views on freedom of speech, the President, our Country's history and its future, as well as a can-do motto for Americans.
"We should all condemn Neo-Nazis, the KKK, & all hate groups. However, they still have the right to speak," said Price. He recalled the sniper attack in July 2016 that left five Dallas police officers dead and how they "gave their lives here in Dallas protecting the rights of those who were protesting, to ensure they still had the right to speak."
While many Americans are divided about how the President is handling the situation in Virginia, Mr. Price suggested that it is, "un-American to criticize President Trump and his children personally; however, it is pro-American to criticize his policies."
Price went on to address the national Confederate monument battle by suggesting that the memorials remain where they are or move them to a museum rather than destroying them. He stressed the importance of these symbols of a painful time in our country's African-American past that should not be forgotten.  Furthermore, he stressed that without these reminders or memorials, "we shouldn't be shocked if history repeats itself."
Mr. Price then turned his attention toward the future by saying, "Our nation has an ugly past; however, it's time that we come together and make our future beautiful for our children."
As a unifying gesture, Price closed his interview by encouraging everyone to take pride in being an American, "If you were born in the United States, that makes you an American. The last four letters of our name spell out - I can! I CAN make a difference in our country!"

The slaves on The Amistad were right. Liberia has offered residency to African Americans. In my humble opinion, the community would be foolish not to accept it. The Jews have used the African American community unmercifully for hundreds of years. Don't allow it anymore. See these links for what you can do:

Google Is Liberia still offering African Americans residency? Ghana seems to be too.

Peace,
