I don't know why it is always so hard for me to introduce myself to a group of strangers, but it is...What are they looking to hear? What subjects will turn them off? Should I be pro everything the group is for and against everything the group is against? I have to be me! I've developed the art of respect and I practice the art of not being judgmental. I hope to meet and share views and opinions with others in this group who are of the habit of perfecting the same qualities.
Currently, I am in my early fifties and constantly have to remind myself that I am no longer eighteen. Life however, has been a wonderful teacher. I have one book available on Kindle and Nook...Workplace Diversity: does not mean Equal Opportunity, Equal Growth, and Equal Advancement... and a second available on Amazon.com, and soon Kindle, and Nook...SUNDAY MORNING: A TESTIMONY OF LIFE. Actually writing has renewed my JOY of reading.
I have served on many Civil Rights Organizations and served on a number of committees established to seek out, confront, and eradicate discrimination in America. One of my major concerns is how little the public knows about discrimination and the current day’s method of practicing the same. My purpose is to inform as to how to identify practices, prepare, make decisions, and to confront to establish equality. Many do not know that their habits are discriminatory and still more do not recognize the practice. It is the habit in America to deny the existence of discrimination while the practice has become more open, sophisticated, and hidden behind the disguise of political correctness. My mission is to let the suffers of prejudice and discrimination know that though they may be African-American, Latino, Asian, or any other race, gender, sexuality, or body type that is not part of the dominant group, that they have the right to fight for Equal Opportunity, Equal Growth, and Equal Advancement if they have the credentials and perform their duties with excellence
Title: Sunday Morning: A Testimony of Life
Author: Richard Brown
Available on Amazon.com and Kindle
For too long the organization known as the church has practiced and postured on issues that are not new to God in an effort to control lives and dictate salvation. Misinterpreting a tenet of Christianity that teaches that you have to study to show yourself approved, the church has caused many to run to individuals that have secured man-made credentials to identify what saith the Lord for their lives, ignoring the true intent and purpose of that tenet and thus leaving their followers unsatisfied or unfulfilled. This is because their salvation is no longer with Jesus, but with an organization, its “experts,” and its protocols that demand solidarity.
Inspired by a life of trials, tribulations, and exultations, Richard Brown’s debut is a raucous, soul-lifting testimony to the personal power of faith, God’s power to heal, and the unconditional love God brings to your life if you believe in God’s word above all others. A powerful commentary on a Christian life lived as an African-American man, the author reminds us all that the Joy of the Lord is where true strength lies, that despite all the organized and individual negativity, one can still stand in Jesus and be assured Grace, Mercy, and Peace. Based on the Christian perspective, Richard emphasizes that God uses who He chooses, that circumstance does not decide fate, and that ALL things are of Christ and of ALL things He consists. Containing meditations that have helped him over every obstacle and through every battle, Richard Brown delivers the opportunity to stop the madness of exclusion and go forth and preach, teach, and show Christ-like love for all.
A powerful and liberating journey of faith and redemption, Richard Brown’s story is a rediscovery of Christian truths seemingly long forgotten. Repudiating the exclusionary and marginalizing nature of organized Christianity, Sunday Morning: A Testimony of Life is a celebration of God that will change your life forever—if you have the courage to let it.
WORKPLACE DIVERSITY: Does not mean Equal Opportunity, Equal Growth, and Equal Advancement

It is amazing that in 2011 and Obama in the White House that we still have many factions in America that still practice old and disproven prejudices and discriminations in a country that prides itself on being a haven for all nationalities. It seems like in hiding behind political correctness there is a new and more sophisticated practice of the same old plague on America. Our workforce is designed to encourage worker bees with no hope for advancement and management that lack experience. One would think that excellence in production alone would demand the advancement of the worker bee while training in management techniques. However, America has made its practice to hire management with no product knowledge or skill while forcing the proverbial foot on the necks and backs of minorities (any group that is just not like them) they refuse to advance while demanding excellent work, unconditional loyalty, and undeniable respect. Is this the new slavery, a form of indentured servitude, or a capitalistic society that has gone awry?
