Post By RelatedRelated Post

Dr. Umar Johnson is a 37-year old Doctor of Clinical Psychology, Nationally Certified School Psychologist, Certified K-12 School Principal, and political scientist. He practices psychology privately in Pennsylvania and also serves as a special education evaluator. One of the components of these jobs is evaluating children between the ages of 3 and 21 to determine if there are any educational disabilities or needs that can be met through special education services. Johnson also trains educators and mental health technicians in a variety of psycho-educational topics that include Attention Deficit Disorder and other disruptive behavior disorders.

Dr. Johnson is considered by many to be an expert on how learning disabilities affect black children and how to help schools and parents use behavior therapy to modify behaviors before they become disruptive.

Dr. Johnson is also considered a Pan-Africanist and is a follower of the teachings of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican Pan-Africanist who organized a return to Africa movement in the early 1900′s. While Johnson does not call for a separatist solution to help solve the myriad of issues faces by blacks in America, he does believe something significant must be done.  He feels that changes must be made in terms of how black people are educated and also how they choose to view their careers and finances.

One of Dr. Johnson’s passions is improving the economic plight of the black community.  He feels that the history of oppression that black people have faced in America plays a major role in why blacks continue to fall at the bottom of many economic indicators.  In the following video, Dr. Johnson talks about how the military industrial complex, the education system, the labor system, and other factors merge to create a n economic that keeps blacks from being empowered and financially self sufficient.  He also discusses how black economic oppression essentially amounts to a military tactic.
