Obama is not a instigator or divider. What's causing problems is petty jealousy resentment and bitterness.

You are showing just how dumb you are by even making such an ignorant statement, I wish that people would get educated what example are you setting for children whether they be black or white let it go it's not funny, or smart and you make yourself look like an idiot

Ignorant statement? No its quite true, do some research. Its what I like to call "crowd" control. People get on here and say.."Oh you judge by the color of skin blah blah blah"...do you all think thats true? Do you honestly think we have a problem with the color brown? My desk is brown...so is my car. I have no problem with it. I do however have a problem with people(that are very commonly brown)sitting on their dead ass, making babies, sitting on their dead ass, making more babies...drawing their welfare check, going to spend it on things I cant even afford, driving vehicles that cost more than my house, commiting the majority of the crimes, because they grew up PO,. Yes there are whites that do this to, I am aware of that. Im sorry, NO, not near as many whites as browns...stop kidding yourself...you know better. Back to the subject. Who gives a $hit about the superintendent? Most prominent white people around here send their kids to private schools anyways. I do. The blacks will never have a school system of their own. They mooch off us, and quite frankly I dont think they have the brains to construct something of that nature. It would turn out into a gun fight or something like that. Plus we give them FREE lunches at school. This is just reality. Ive watched it for over 40 years. Anyone who says different does not live here, or just isnt a realist. Im going to color with my brown crayon, cause...Im not racist! Goodnight.

No where in the article listed the qualifications of both candidates, only race. So just becuase someone is black they should get the job? This whole story doesn't make alot of sense for the fact that it doesn't give enough information to let the public decide what the issue is. It is sad however how we all holler race, black white whatever, but yet the african american population have a NAACP, Negro College Fund, Black Entertainment TV, Black History Month... You don't see White history month? Until this country treats both races EQUALLY we will always have these racial issues, it isn't equal by no means. I believe now there is more blame being placed on the whites and everything's a racial issue. To me it's not all a racial issue, just like all the news wants to cite the inidents, the fact it no matter the situation and color you get treated like you act and present yourself!
It's true people should be judged on their qualifications and not race, so far as we have black history month, and BET so what we have a month and white people have 11 months and your problem is what? Yes, we do have BET which I am sure most white people watch trying to take what you can from it because most white people hate black people because you want to be like us. Their is nothing white people can do better than us , but lie and steal from every minority race in history and claim it's yours. Using one of the famous phrases from white people, "you people need to quit complaining because we are not going anywhere and there is nothing you can do about it" we may have high crime within our community you do too you kill each other just as we do except you crazy muth*** do it in groups and hide behind sheets and shit all of you are cowards.

You are not racist, yeah right!!! I'm assuming that was a joke. First , I know most of white people believe that blacks are on welfare, lazy ,use white people and the system to mooch off of and this is true in some cases, but take this with you before you leave there are many, many , many blacks with money and education I am one of them with my own money, job, house and a degree. Why do you think McCain lost the race I'll tell you why because he was out smarted and his money wasn't long enough. Just thought I'd inform, PEACE!!

And "Smart and Black" stays in the lead with, "I know most of white people believe that blacks are on welfare, lazy..." How do you "know" what "most white people believe?" Sounds like racism to me.

By the way, McCain wasn't "out-smarted;" the majority of American voters were out-smarted, and it wasn't hard to do. And despite Obama's absolutely horrible policy decisions of the past six months, there are lots of them who aren't smart enough to realize it.

Mixing apples and oranges!!! Doesn't matter what your skin color. If you were a stupid, ignorant and racist individual prior to Obama's election to office. You're still stupid, ignorant and racist now.

Bottom line:

Mr. Duke was the most experienced and most qualified of the final 4 or 5 candidates, but because he is white and the others are black, The Real Racist Views comes out with their racist vile editorial against a truly honorable man. You ignorant folks who believe this was a white thing better do the research yourself because you will never get an impartial view from the editor and his co editor.

For once, we now have a superintendent who has class room experience, athletic department experience, and administrative experience, and superintendent experience; a man who has direct daily one on one experience with students, teachers, parents, administrators, and school boards. Now how much more qualified can you get?

Now maybe the Natchitoches Parish school system will come up in the academic world. We should all be proud of our new superintendent and his experience.

Looks to me like the school board judged this man on his experience and the content of his character and not the color of his skin. Too bad the Real Racist Views doesn't subscribe to the teachings of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. except when its convenient for them to play the race card.

U2bc - but good friend, charter member of the tribe...you must also point out some of the reasons for the anger (besides the usual race thing...)

the board re-opened the process because Mr Duke did not apply in time..?

He FAILED MISERABLY in the Q&A forum and has no technology background and wouldn't you agree that this would be somewhat of a problem in directing the educational needs of students in 2009?

He has many skills that are needed, yet lacks also. I could care less about the race of a candidate so long as everyone played by the same rules, which were not the case in this scenario.
I sincerely believe that we need an outsider, a business-modeled individual who follows a process and not the "clique", white or black. However, we have Mr Duke, and it's time to let it go and as I said with regards to our President, let's give him a shot and stay open-minded and let results be the judge.

He may turn out to be the best person for the job, but I feel he is not prepared (or anyone for that matter) to deal with the underlings he is stuck with. A clean slate and an entire board is really what is needed in this town.

And Original Sports Guy, since you have all of the answers, you will be running for one of those School Board seats in the fall of 2010 right? In January 2011 all of our education issues will go away? Man, thanks the parish needs you.

For the people out to smear Duke, most of the finalist came when the school board re-opened the application process. Duke wasn't the only one that came in when it was re-opened. But then if that fact is mentioned , we can't have the conspiracy theory. So again rumor and weak minds run wild.

The man has been supt for 3 days. Give him at least a week. Geez

Oh hell no I don't have any answer other than what I posted - clean slate with an entire new board which will allow whomever is Supt. to do their job.

Your emotion is too vivid and I never said anything to 'smear'...I was at the Q&A forum and do you disagree he had no answers to very important technological questions? Do you not agree that today's society is not a 'chalkboard' society and skills need to keep up with industry?

The man has been supt for 3 days. Give him at least a week. Geez
I also complimented him and said the very same thing - Like the President, let's give him a chance to do his job and save judgement for later...

not sure why you took issue with my post but for the most part, I agree with you, I think?

apology not necessary and I appreciate your emotion in your community - we need more like you...and again, I make no premise that I have any answers, only comment on what I witness/experience. I listen like others to all the "theories" on who, what and where, but like most topics, in one ear (or eyes) out the other...LOL

I was not aware of, however, any other candidate being allowed/considered other than Mr Duke after the deadline had passed, which is what caused the 'race' card to come out...if that is true, it is sad that it wasn't reported or discussed in defense of Mr Duke. But then again, we do live in Natchitoches...LOL

We need someone to clean up the schools. Color is not an issue. We have so many children attending school pregnant. If they are not allowed to attend regular school, then they will think twice before bringing a child into this world. Uneducated people having uneducated children is a down fall for society. Soical Security is running out because people who have never held a job is recieving it. I have been a tax payer since 15 and will never see my work, due to people who do not work. We have larger issues than the color of the skin.
