Modern SlaveryBorn in Augusta, Ga. in 1951, Jerry Smith grew up in Philadelphia, Pa. He served six years in the Navy, and upon his honorable discharge, he immediately enrolled in college. Six years later, he received his Masters Degree in Counseling and decided to return home to the city of his birth, Augusta, Georgia in 1983 where he still resides. He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Georgia, and a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in South Carolina and he has been in private practice for more than fifteen years. His private practice consists of individual, marital and family counseling, as well as providing consulting services to various businesses, organizations and agencies.

Jerry is an accomplished Motivational Speaker, and has expertise in all areas of human growth and development. Some of his expertise includes the following: Individual, Marital and Family Counseling; Alcohol, Drugs and Addictions Counseling; Self-Enrichment and Life-Coaching, just to name a few.

He has over thirty years experience working with various social service agencies counseling individuals, families and children that exhibited a range of psychological disorders. He has several years experience working in medium/maximum penitentiaries in both Georgia and South Carolina providing rehabilitative counseling to convicted felons. Jerry also has over ten years experience as an Adjunct Professor teaching both psychology and sociology courses. Jerry has authored the following books: “IT’S TIME TO STOP BLAMING THE WHITE MAN,” and the sequel, “IT’S STILL TIME TO STOP BLAMING THE WHITE MAN.”

My goal for this blog is to get people in general and Black people in particular to take a serious and honest look at what is happening to the people of color around the world at the hands of some of the White people of the world. Once we have assessed our problems, we must then accept full responsibility to create positive changes to our current dilemma.

  1. Just listened to the Pope depicting our American lifestyle . He sensed that our technology era is well shared by the lonely, folks unwilling to commit to marriage. He also spoke of mothers doing so much for their sons. Instead he wants mothers to encourage them to take the challenge of marriage.
    Our children no longer have the avenue of developing viable friendships on a personal level instead of technology.
    His message here is the family.
    As I ponder his thoughts, I thought about all of the senseless murders of young unmarried men. True some leaves wife’s and children to morn their deaths. But the message does give us an ounce of Hope that if we had a more cohesive and closeness comment of family values, there could be about a change. Oft times at the funeral we say, “we should not wait until a death occurs to come together”.
    Encouragement of developing our lifestyle is only rolling back the hands of time as our Great, Great Grand Parents saw life.
    1. When one ate, all ate
    2. When one suffer, all suffer
    3. When hubby and wife had disagreements parents gave counsel
    4. When children needed disciplined,
    Neighbors advised parents and ____
    5. We fought to obtain an education
    The numbers can go on and on.
    My quote to you!
    “The Success of the Family is Measured by the Strength of the Parent Body, Governing it with Principles”.
