YOUNG, WHITNEY M., JR.

YOUNG, WHITNEY M., JR. One of the most prominent black leaders of the 1960's and former Executive Secretary of the Na­tional Urban League (NUL), Whitney Moore Young, Jr. was born in Lincoln Ridge, Kentucky in 1921. Educated at Lincoln Institute and Kentucky State College (B. S., 1941), Young studied for a year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before serving with the U. S. Army in Europe during World War II. Following the war, he attended the University of Minnesota and was awarded an M. A. degree in social work in 1947. The topic of his Master's thesis was the history of the National Urban League's chapter in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From 1947 to 1950, Young acted as director of industrial tions and vocational guidance for the Urban League of .St. Paul. He was named executive director of the Omaha Urban League in 1950, a position he held until his appointment as Dean of the Atlanta University School of Social Work in 1954. Remain­ing at Atlanta until 1961, Young managed to double the school's enrollment and budget, thereby increasing its national prestige. On August 1, 1961, he succeeded Lester Granger as Executive Director of the National Urban League. Although the Urban League traditionally had held aloof from active participation in the Civil Rights Revolution, under Young's direction it became increasingly involved in the national effort to secure political and socioeconomic equality for American blacks. In 1963, for example, the NUL joined with the NAACP, CORE, SCLC and SNCC to plan and participate in the now-famous March on Washington.

In addition to his Urban League activities, Young was an es­teemed author. His first book, To Be Equal, was published in 1964, with his Beyond Racism appearing in 1969. He also wrote a nationally-syndicated newspaper column, "To Be Equal," which appeared in over one hundred papers throughout the United States. One of his most persistent themes was that the American government should provide for a domestic Marshall Plan which would expend upwards of one hundred billion dollars in a crash program to eradicate socioeconomic deprivation and inequity in American society. Young's premature death in 1971, just three years after the assassination of Martin Luther King, de­prived black America of another strong and influential leader. See also: NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE.

Please let’s talk.

In remembering the story of Noah sent with the message of the flood; or the story of Jonah, who was sent with the message that God was to destroy the City of Nineveh; and of course that famous story of Mosses sent with the message to let God’s people go; is it so hard to believe,, that when the time was right, God would send a Messenger once again for the benefit of the People? Some have commented that my Message is not Biblical, but it is indeed Biblical. It gives the How of Earth’s final Revelation; By the time the spill-over of the Seven Seals reaches visual view of this Planet, the regression of Earth’s Core will be well on it’s way. It had been fore told that the Mysteries of Heaven would be revealed in the last days, and these Mysteries have been given me to tell the people associated with this Rock;
The Message goes as so;


Earth's Core is Changing Back, and the completion of this change will answer every
WHY and HOW Earth is changing so much; mend the gap between Religion and Science; make matters of Rapture a necessary Planet Evacuation;
The design and creation of Earth's core was and is more than just a random creation of nature. From the beginning Earth's core was purposed for a specific celestial function, and has now begin a timely predestined shift of it's mantle plates in the ‘at first’ gradual return back to it's original function. Such regressing changes are those which has off-sit increasing earthquakes, rising surface temperature, and increasing temperature changes in ocean and sea floors which will continue heating up until all such waters reach boiling degrees and began to evaporate. BUT THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING !. The mantled core will return to such a heated state, that the very surface and crust of Earth’s surface will peel away from the core as one would peal off the hull of an orange and cast it into space. The Core of this Planet will become once again a temporary supper-heated source similar to that which scientist knew existed, but didn’t understand where it came from, or what it actually was that cause the accumulation of cosmic element unto the combustion of that big bang. This in a much much smaller since makes our solar system ground zero for a very special work which will soon take place, the Core will not be working alone. The last time this Core performed these functions, Earth’s sun was born.
