Good plan.
Let's poison the minds of these first graders, or risk losing their donations when they grow up. Hatred runs this game, and if you don't teach them to hate in school, who will? And if they don't hate, who will fund the expolitation operations of the next generation of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
Black America is a terminal mess.

Black America has been doomed for some time.They can't stop killing each other,call good blacks who want to help Uncle Toms and if a black kid wants to learn in school the other kids make fun of them and say "Are you trying to be white?"Yes they are truly doomed.

Perhaps the teacher (in her own way) was providing a lesson in reality, namely, Life 101.

Personally i do not feel no harm was done..., on the other hand, it depends on what 'side of the track' you are viewing from.

All children should be taught that there are those that will do them harm, and the quicker they realize this the better.

In my view, the teachers were trying to explain the march in Jena to the children and what the noose symbolizes to the black community. The brutality that many blacks suffered from by the lynching and symbolizes hate. I don't think that it was age appropriate for elementary-aged school child to actully have their head inside of a noose. Perhaps other sources could've been used to get the point across such as film or pictures, then again that maybe too much for them because seeing someone hanging from a noose is horrifying. The teachers should be cognizant and apply age-appropriate lessons to very young people.

However, I dont' agree with other posts that the teachers were poisoning minds and spreading hate because if a child wants to know what a noose is and how does it affects black people then it should be explained to them. The truth should not be hidden and it certainly isn't poison or hate it's part of our history.

In addition, blacks are not doomed. Just because some of our communities have major problems does not mean that we as a race are doomed. People like you continue to marginalize blacks in hopes that we will destroy ourselves but we are here to stay and we will survive.

Wrong. The continued teaching of hatred, yes hatred, that is prevalent in the Black Community will only continue the cycle of seperation and degradation that you have experienced for the last 150 years. Let's be honest, Whites really don't hate you. Most Whites don't want to be around you at all or have anything to do with you. Your cultural mores and ethics are not condusive to most White Americans. Does this make us bad people? Of course not. Would you want to be around someone you didn't want to be around? Would you want to live in a neighbor that is infested with the KKK, people who hate you? Of course not, so why should Whites be forced to live with people who hate them? Yet the Black Community continues to blame it's woes on whites and does nothing to raise it's station. Whites don't want to continue funding every welfare inituative that is constantly presented to them for supposed injustices. It has been stated that the Blacks were victims of slavery, and this is true, but less than 2% of the population prior to the Civil War owned slaves, yet all Whites are held accountable. It is insane.
By continuing to teach your children in the manner that you do, you engrave the "You owe me" train of thought into their psyche. Trust me, you are never going to get "paid" because you are black. Children who are taught about supposed racial boundries and glass ceilings, as your community teaches them, will continue to experience racial boundries and glass ceilings. It's what they will expect and they will sabotage themselves to achieve that. Every time a Black Leader, like Bill Cosby or Larry Elders tries to make this point, he is shut down as "Uncle Tom", by your so called leaders. Who really pays the price? Not White America, it doesn't slow us down a bit. You pay the price, and you seem very satisfied. You aren't doomed to extinction, you are doomed to irrelvance.

Sorry, teaching history is not teaching hate. Should not Jews tell their offspring about the Holocaust and that the swastika is a symbol of hate, brutality, and intolerance, shouldn’t the Japanese tell their offspring about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the internment camps that their ancestors were relegated in WWll, shouldn’t the Native Americans not tell their offspring about how their land was stolen from them and all the broken treaties the occurred, shouldn’t the Chinese tell their offspring about how the British colonized them and how they built the railroads in this country and were discriminated against? All peoples have a history to tell and whether you like that history or not do not make it irrelevant today.
In addition, who cares if whites want to be around us? You act as though that's a prerequisite for our existence.
These statistics should clarify some of your misconceptions about blacks. Therefore, you will come to realize that your arrogance is unfounded since whites commit an overwhelmingly amount of crimes in this country which includes hate crimes. So, by the statistics you can tell what race has the most hate!
http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2006/arrests/index...
 Among the four categories of race reflected in UCR arrest data, 69.7 percent of persons arrested were white, 58.5 percent of persons arrested for violent crime were white, and 68.2 percent of persons arrested for property crime were white.
 White juveniles comprised 67.1 percent of the juveniles arrested in 2006.
 Black juveniles accounted for 51.0 percent of the juveniles arrested for violent crime, and white juveniles comprised 66.3 percent of juveniles arrested for property crime.(See Table 43.)
http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2005/incidentsoffens...
Racial Bias
In 2005, law enforcement agencies reported that 4,691 hate crime offenses were racially motivated. Of these offenses:
 68.2 percent were triggered by anti-black bias.
 19.9 percent were motivated by anti-white bias.
 4.9 percent resulted from anti-Asian/Pacific Islander bias.
 4.9 percent were driven by bias against groups of individuals in which more than one race was reported (anti-multiple races, group).
 2.0 percent were motivated by anti-American Indian/Alaskan Native bias.
(Based on Table 1.)
http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2005/offenders.htm
Reporting agencies identified 6,804 known offenders in 7,163 bias-motivated incidents in 2005. In the Uniform Crime Reporting Program, the term known offender does not imply that the suspect’s identity is known. The term indicates that some aspect of the suspect was identified, thus distinguishing the suspect from an unknown offender. Law enforcement agencies specify the number of offenders and, when possible, the apparent race of the offender or offenders as a group.
By Race
An analysis of available race data for the 6,804 known hate crime offenders revealed that:
 60.5 percent were white.
 19.9 percent were black.
 12.3 percent were unknown.
 5.2 percent were groups made up of individuals of various races (multiple races, group).
 1.1 percent of known offenders were American Indian/Alaskan Native.
 0.9 percent were Asian/Pacific Islander.
(Based on Table 9.)

Teaching history is one thing, but the Black Community doesn't just teach history to it's children, it teaches contempt and loathing. As many posters on here have stated, the lineage of "us against the White Devil" remains a strong segment of the Black cirriculum.
Your statement about black segregation intrigues me. You state that "Who cares if whites want us around". Isn't that really the basis for just about every incident, Blacks forcing their way into White domains? I can't think of one case that erupted where a White Man tried to move to Harlem or South Central.
As far as the endless statistics, you failed to mention the most important one. Whites maintain 68% of the population while Blacks barely comprise 13%. Correlate the figures on an equal basis, and you will see a huge disparity between White crime and Black crime (Multiply all black figures by 5.23 and you get the idea). As far as the Hate Crime statistics, due to Political Correctness and a weak Legal System, Whites are just about the only race charged with Race Crimes. That is an embarrassment for the politicians, not for White people.

So, you think that the fact of America being 68% white and 13% black is closed minded? You don't think the vast size difference has something to do with the statistics? Or are you just pissed because you have been wrong in every posting and I've called you on them?

One huge difference here - the Jews don't "almost" gas their children and the Japanese don't "almost" bomb theirs. What happened at Grambling is appauling - and all parents should be outraged. What happens when one of these children goes home to show his or her sibling the "lesson" learned and accidentally hangs themselves? The attempt by the administration at GSU to censor this information from the university newspaper just reinforces the fact that this "lesson" was wrong.

You flatter yourself. I am not upset, but it is apparent you are. You go from forum to forum that discuss issues pertaining to Black Americans and try to stir up division while spewing hate. If you were not upset and bothered by my comment to Mother of Africa you would not have responded to me with your "self-righteous" delusions of truth. If the shoe fits....

From reading the stats that were posted, the stats were based on number of arrests made nationally, not population percentage. If any one group of people were so law-abiding then it would not matter what that groups population was, there would not be any arrest or very few to say the least. The stats show that in 2006, White people overwhelmingly perpetrated certain crimes. Maybe if the statistics were say of...the percentage of arrest made in South Central LA or the Bronx in NY, then you would have an overwhelming number of minorities being the prepetrators because those areas are predominately minority. However, the stats that were referenced were of all arrest made in 2006 in the US, and of those arrested, broken down by the 5 major race groups. It does not matter how many people are in a particular race group, what matter is whether they committed a crime or not.

So because White people are the majority in this country, are you saying that the stats will always reflect the majority of crimes being committed by them? Well, that would only be true if Whites were to break the law right?

Regardless of who is committing a crime, all Americans pay for it and everyone suffers in some way because of it. We should be concerned with why people are breaking the law and how we as a society can curtail it. Neverending quest.

Yes, this situation was wrong on a number of levels: it was not age-appropriate and you're right on your accessment that kids could try to use nooses as play things and harm themselves or others. But let's not forget that this was an isolated incident that happended and is not indicative of what blacks do as a whole. In fact, this is the first of its kind in reference to teaching black kids about racism and nooses.

The sad truth is that the Negro and the white will never get along with one another as long as the Negro is taught to hate whitey.
We as white people do not want any harm to come to anyone regardless of race, religion or creed. We just seek to be given the same rights as so many others to express in words not violence our displeasure with the way things are going on toward the white race.
Why is that so hard to understand for the Negro?
I do not now nor will I ever get a good feeling about any person being hurt or have violence perpetrated on them.
Regardless of race. As a white nationalist let me categorically state that I do not now nor will I ever advocate violence.
I disagree with you. Blacks and whites can get along as long as their are fair-minded whites who will standup for racial injustice. For instance, just yesterday in a school I believe in Tennessee, students had a crossword puzzle to complete for homework. In that crossword puzzle was "an insulting word for a black person" which was the n-word. Well, this white man who is a parent was highly upset that the n-word was in the puzzle and he said that he did not want his children exposed to the n-word because he does not teach his children to use the n-word. I applaud him because he was so outraged that that this had happended and that he was offended.
Furthermore, I live in a racially mixed community whites, blacks, asians, and latinos. This is a community of single-family homes and one apartment complex. Two years ago (maybe three now) we had vandalism in our commuity in which vehicles on my street and other streets were being spray-painted. The police arrested the perpetrators which were white teens.
Also, in the same year in my community burning crosses were found on some lawns. The whites in my community stood up and said that they would not tolerate this behavior and said they never had it, don't condone it and want this to stop. I don't know whether the perpetrators were arrested or were the same perpetrators who spray-painted the cars or not but there has been no more incidents. I've lived in this neighborhood for 13 years and I love it. The point is blacks, whites, and others can live together.
In addition stop calling blacks "negros". Please address us as "blacks" or "african-american". The word "negro" is offensive to me because that's a word that is used by whites to belittle and marginalize us.
I would like to address your statement " We just seek to be given the same rights as so many others to express in words not violence our displeasure with the way things are going on toward the white race." What displeasure are you talking about? Are blacks and others responsible for "the way things are going for whites"? If so, how? What rights don't you have that others have? I believe you are seeking scapegoats for your perceived displeasure.
In seeking understanding, why can't you understand that blacks and others are just seeking racial justice and equality under the law? Here are two prime examples of racial injustices:

I challenge you to go through my postings and give one example of the alleged "hate" that you say I have "spewed". You can't do it, because I haven't.
Have I given facts and predictions? Absolutely. Have I challenged your leaders on their actions? Absolutely.
Have I challenged the Black Community on being "brainwashed" and "duped" into following numerous errant adventures with their funds and credibility? Absolutely
Have I challenged you for given personally biased slant on information that you have given? Absolutely and I've backed it up with credible information. You have yet to respond in kind with substatiated data, instead opting only for the "you are racist" defense.
Have I been called "White Devil", "Cracker" and "Snow Flake" by other posters? Absolutely.
Have I responded in kind? Absolutely not, nor will I sink to that level, as it is only counterproductive.
Over the past few days of correspondence though, I have watched you transform from a man who seemed to be trying to rationalize the Jena situation into man man who frequents the "If you don't agree with everything I say and think, you must be racist" mantra. A very sad testiment about your true intentions.
As far as the statistic of "Mother Africa's" post, if you really don't consider the relevance of there being 5.23 whites for every black into the calculation of the crime statistics, then you are merely once again slanting the information for your own self gratification. Actions of this nature will only lessen your credibility amongst the educated readers, who understand the relevance of the population criteria, of this posting. That would be a shame as eventually, you may one day post something worth reading.

Your argument makes no more sense now than it did yesterday. Whites commit more crimes total than Blacks because there are 5.23 times more Whites than Blacks. How hard is that to understand? What I tried to convey is that per capita, Blacks commit much more crimes than Whites. That's not racism, that verifiable statistical fact.
Your rantings about Whites spewing hate, and are violent child molesters is merely vile racist diatribe. You should be ashamed for holding onto such racist connotations.
At what time did I ever state that Black had inferior mores and values? I didn't. I said different mores and values. Do you deny that there is a stark difference between the way Whites and Black perceive issues? If you don't, then why are we having this conversation?
I have lived in Fayetteville, NC (48% White-42% Black)for 8 years and Killeen, TX (39% White-34% Black)for 7 years, so yes, I have experienced the Black Community.
The teaching of history for the extention of knowledge is meritable. The stressed teaching of inflammatory and exaggerated instances to propagate militancy is repugnant. The future of your children is in your hands, and you are dropping the ball.

Name you a community that stresses the teaching of infammatory and exaggerated instances? Look no farther than the picture of this article. Do you know how many actual black lynchings there were? I bet you don't, because the truth was never taught to you.

3,446 over an 86 year period. Not nice, but not really the Holocaust that they make it out to be. Yet you insist on teaching this like it was a regular occurance, which apparently it was not. That is propagating hate.
Did you know that less than 2% of the White Population prior to the Civil War owned slaves? Yet you insist to include all Whites as the reason for you "oppression"? Why is that? To propagate hate?
Now lets examine the Black Family unit that you said is doing so well.

80% of black children will be without their father at some time during their youth.

For children born in 2001, Black men have a 33% probability of spending time in prison, compared to .05% for White men

Blacks murders are committed by other blacks 93% of the time.
Whites commit fewer than half of all murders in the United States, yet more whites than blacks are sentenced to death and more whites than blacks are executed each year.
Though blacks account for just one-eighth of the US population, the BJS reports, they are six times more likely than whites to be victimized by homicide -- and seven times more likely to commit homicide.

Finally Black in education. Black enrollment in colleges is indeed up. Unfortunately blacks insist on going to historically black universities. No Black University ranked in the top 130 in the country. Blacks insist on majoring in subjects such as social work and Black studies. These don't pay well. So while more Blacks are getting an "education", it isn't a "good education". Less than 94,000 blacks are Doctors, engineers, or scientists. This trend doesn't seem to be changing.

If you really believe that you are doing well as parents...fine. The plight of the Blacks have little bearing on the White Community, except for occasional instances such as the Duke Rape Case and the Jena Travesty. The influx and growth of the Hispanic community will soon render the Black cause mute.
"There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life," Jesse Jackson said in 1993, "than to walk down the street and hear footsteps ... then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved."
