I dont think I am runnning away from being a role model...plenty of famous black minds have either called for an exodus of north america or have made the jounrney themselves.

thanks for the feedback...i am exploring all my options. Perhaps I feel somewhat disenchanted by what i see going on in America. For the past couple of years I have worked as a gang teen counselor and paralegal and it only seems to be getting worse. Although I thought about going into civil rights it seems that no matter what is done we are in a never ending spiral of death, destruction, and overall mayhem. I really want more than anything, just some type of peace, and no i do not believe that will happen through the law or becoming a lawyer. The more I look into law as a profession, the more I see its either for the money or the people. Does anyone know anything about Florida State or Maryland's enviromental law programs? Also whats up with Howard? I mean my wife and I went there for a visit I scheduled like two months in advance and we get there and they are like sorry no tours, even though they had two chicks that admitted to doing them sitting right in the damn front office?!!! Some people say Howard is just living off their reputation, thoughts on this?

Honestly, I am thinking of becoming an enviromental lawyer because our generation is just a bunch of pips...lol. So I figure I will either help in the destruction of the world as well by becoming rich by defending some huge oil company or defending the rain forest and such, thus preserving some type of hope for the next generation, in the hope that they are somewhat more intelligent than their predecessors. I cant tell which way my moral compass will point by the time my professors and the system has further jaded my view of an already disturbed world.
Oh well off to study Logic Games...I need a 170 in Sept...9 points away.

no i am not feeling the commercialization of hip-hop, the rampant belittlement of women, the common reference to each other as n-word and hoes, the inner-city troubles of gang violence, the screwed up crack versus cocaine law sentencing, the disparaging comments of black comedy that allow us to laugh at the very problems that we turn cold shoulders on, the inability to work together to confront these problems with out someone disagreeing even though they know the particular cause and solution, the inability or perhaps pure laziness of black america as a whole to raise their kids to care more about building a strong community versus bling and material possessions. And a plethora of other things...if you are jamaican and not from the US why are you offended, jamaica has culture, black america doesn't, at least not anymore, unless rap videos and such are a true depiction of what we value in black american society...oh i almost forgot...the total lack of the church to serve as some type of spiritual stronghold in this so called Christian nation, the pastors themselves selling the souls of their congregation to a bunch of radical Republican flag waving-baby killing fools.
The thoughts therein are of a independent thinker.

I am just wondering if there are many black environmental lawyers out there. Can anyone recommend one particular law school over another that is deeply involved in enviromental law but has a good bit of black people or just minorities period, besides Hawaii. I am trying to see if there is someway that I can end up practicing law in the Carribean or in Canada but with an American degree. Because I am not really feeling supposed black american culture or the US for the most part period, and I think it would feel great to walk outside in the Carribean and see black people everywhere. Just a thought.
Right now I have to take the LSAT on Sept. 30...on my practice exam I scored a 161.
So far the list is in no particular order:
UNC-CHAPEL HILL (NC NATIVE)
UNIV OF SOUTH CAROLINA
UNIV OF MARYLAND
UNIV OF FLORIDA
UNIV OF WASHINGTON
UNIV OF OREGON
VERMONT LAW SCHOOL
LEWIS AND CLARK
POSSIBLY UNIV OF COLORADO

If you have to ask OTHERS whether you should be going to law school, you need to step back and take a better look at exactly why YOU want to go. Becoming a lawyer does not mean that you will be rich, famous, or respected...but you just might.
