Samuel Betances is a renowned motivational keynoter and workforce diversity consultant. He has worked in all 50 states and in 17 countries and represents one of the most reasonable voices on the diversity challenge. Dr. Betances earned his Masters and Doctorate at Harvard University and taught Sociology for over 20 years. Framing his most serious of messages with humor, he speaks with passion and conviction in the tradition of great preachers.
He is best known for keynoting and presenting workshops on retaining, educating and graduating first generation students from book-poor homes. With a compelling personal journey from dropping out of school to earning two graduate degrees from Harvard, he motivates and inspires willing learners. His message urges educators, students, parents, community leaders and youth development professionals in public and private institutions of learning across the country to help the next generation succeed by staying in school, becoming educated and graduating. His children and grandchildren are products of the Chicago Public Schools.
Having worked at the US Department of Education and as a Professor of Sociology at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago for 25 years, Dr. Betances is widely recognized for his advocacy of First Generation Students. He and his wife, Dr. Laura M. Torres Souder, have provided professional leadership and staff development training to over 1,112 public and private schools at home and abroad. They continue to provide diversity training and advocate for authentic literacy throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and Micronesia.
More of what we would expect from Samuel Betances. This man clearly hates White people and traditional society. He refers to the settlers who established the 13 colonies as 'illegal aliens,' for instance, even though they were not illegally entering a foreign state but rather settling in the wilderness of North America. He also refers to non-Whites in the USA as 'emerging majorities,' which is a true enough description given the anti-White immigration policy of the US Federal Government, however, Betances cheers this fact and is openly biased against White people - whom he wishes to see replaced. If you hate Whites, this is the book for you.

Even more, he compares and contrasts legal programs that exist for protected classes and diversity of thought throughout every layer of the organization and its benefits. Companies who practice diversity of thought at all levels of their organization meet legal requirements, send a strong signal to every employee that your work matters and opportunities of training will be given to alland promotions will be given to those who have earned it and are most qualified, and that this organization understands that keeping its employees and the bottom line advantages that come from diverse thought at every level germinate the creative thinking to reach into markets that are full of smart consumers, like women and other non-traditional groups.
