Psychiatry, Racism, and the Birth of ‘Sesame Street’
How an African-American psychiatrist helped design a groundbreaking television show as a radical therapeutic tool for helping minority preschoolers.
Chester M. Pierce was a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Education at Harvard University. He also served on the faculty of the Harvard School of Public Health.
He was a Senior Psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he spent much of his career. He was also a psychiatrist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for almost 25 years. Dr. Pierce was revered by his many students of all backgrounds and ethnic groups as a brilliant, scholarly, kind, and humble professor who brought great dignity and honor to his profession and the Harvard community. He was a visionary pioneer in the field of global mental health. His wisdom continues to guide us today.
And because of Dr. Pierce, we are honored by FLOTUS’ appearances on Sesame Street.

Is my phone broken, or am I actually listening to broadcasters speculating about whether Trump’s delivery today of words on a TelePrompTer marks a turning point in his presidency & suggesting he might now become a decent human being and dignified president?
Stop it, you fools. https://twitter.com/OfficialJonZal/status/1136619285722423298?s=17
Finally watching Maddow from last night.
So, because the Irish Government wouldn’t meet Dolt45 at his phucking Golf Club…
They forced the meeting at some room AT THE PHUCKING AIRPORT?
Even after being offered a CASTLE, where other Presidents have attended meetings.
Uh huh 😒🙄
Who does this except a subhuman savage? They’re not human, y’all.
Satan himself is a nicer guy than Mitch McConnell. I hate this evil bastard.
The fact that this snake won’t even bring the path to citizenship bill up for a vote….
He’s been swinging his dick for too damn long. I’m waiting for Karma…
Oh Dear God!
Phuckery afoot 😒

so, if they are ‘ rented babies’, then it doesn’t matter if we keep up with them…
see….this lie to cover their deliberate ‘losing’ of these children.
This is some EVIL ASS shit going down right here.
Where are the babies? Are they being sold for adoption?
Rep. Jamie Raskin said the Judiciary Committee is starting to think that, without an impeachment inquiry, Dems could lose some fights to compel the W.H. to cooperate.”It is necessary to avoid a series of legal minefields in conservative courtrooms.” https://t.co/jHEgUMlSlH— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) June 6, 2019
They can start with his impeachment 😠😠
Ya’ll wanted this POS
I read a comment the other day at another blog, and can’t find it anymore. But, to this person, they believe that progressives aren’t looking deep enough to why Southern Black voters are going for Biden. They have no illusions as to where they live, nor with the people that they live with….which is why they look to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT for protection against the state governments, which are nothing but hostile to them. Remember, these state governments were no less hostile to them during 44’s Administration, but, they had a FEDERAL APPARATUS which they believed, provided a layer of protection for them. They see what NOT having that – in Dolt45….and, they want it back. They don’t need to be ‘ inspired’. They just want some sort of barrier of protection.
I hadn’t thought of it that way, but, it makes a lot of sense.
The corruption of Dolt45 and the lowlifes he has hired is EVERYWHERE.
This is why I believe Kamala Harris should make this her issue. Say, ‘ I am not Kamala the Cop, but I AM Kamala the Prosecutor. And, the level of corruption needs to be cleaned up, and I am the one to do it.’
She can do this and blunt Biden’s ‘ but, Trump is an anomaly, by pointing out the level of corruption, up and down with the GOP, bring up Turtle and his wife and those articles about them from this week.

For many black voters, 2020 isn’t about pride or making history. It’s about beating Trump

“The conversation in the barber shop and beauty salons is that Biden was there for Obama, he had his back … he’s a really close friend, so it makes them feel like they have a relationship, even if they’ve never met him,” said Anthony Daniels, who leads Democrats in Alabama’s House of Representatives. “A lot of times in the African American community they don’t trade old friends for new friends.”
Hillary was “the one who could win” in 2008 and 2016. In fact, one of the themes of her 2008 campaign was “inevitability”, as I recall. Now, she did win the popular vote in 2016 which doesn’t count without winning the electoral vote. But everyone believed so much in her winning against any Republican because they were all such weak candidates, we thought at the time.
The lesson I think we should have learned by now is that picking “the one who can win” is not a good strategy.
I hear you 🤔🤔
Uh huh 😒😠

He’s clearly unstable. And this bald faced lie will be reported wildly on Fox News as fact, deceiving the people. More reason to have Mueller testify publicly and during prime time to inform the public so they’ll know the truth. @SpeakerPelosi
The mainstream media has been ignoring Trump’s attacks on LGBTQ rights for weeks

Why do black voters support Biden? They just want to beat Trump.

Measures up? Reading from a teleprompter? The same thing y’all mocked and demonized President Obama for? Because y’all are petty like that.

What is shifting is other candidates.
If you were splitting support with another candidate for X demo and that candidate drops out – yes that may move the need enough in a tight enough race to affect win or loose dynamics
And since no one is above 50% yes there is some wiggle https://twitter.com/BlueSteelDC/status/1136545118058635264?s=17

Kamala Harris has that ability.
And if she could rally black voters to her – it’s like waking a sleeping giant and riding on its shoulders.
Right now she is actually a top choice of the same white college voters that boasted Obama.
Kamala has closer parallels to Obama but https://twitter.com/BlueSteelDC/status/1136547973536649216?s=17
BlueSteelDC (@BlueSteelDC) Tweeted:
But Kamala is running a really different campaign. And black voters are more concerned about Trump to take a risk – so she is going to have to dominate in a way she isn’t- to convince POC.
The environment is tougher.
And Frankly she isn’t doing as well looking main stream https://twitter.com/BlueSteelDC/status/1136548579978465281?s=17

Impeachment will not remove Trump, but it informs other criminals who are contemplating a run for the presidency that the voters will not tolerate it. Trump has already degraded the presidency, for there to be no consequences for that only insures that others will do the same.
