WOW, what a surprise!!!! These ghetto thugs are too busy mugging 80 year old women for their SS checks, that's why they don't go to class and learn how to read and write. RhonDUH the racist ugly slut, will say it's whitey's master plan to keep the KNEE-GROW in chains, I say it's all the parents fault,because most of the KNEE-GROWS, don't know who their daddy is

Remeber that movie The Predator 2? Remember the jamaicain king pin boss?

I'n the voice of that guy, "I don't know who he is, but I know where he is". LOL! It's funnier if you watch that part of the movie.

I know my father, for all of about two days worth of shit flies. He was in and out of my life faster than a crack head can smoke a pipe. But who cares, I'm better off without him. The only thing that he tried to teach me was how to stand at a corner store with a 40oz. And I wasn't into that, so I had to drop that zero. He's fifty something and still wiping tables at a fast food joint for probably min. wage. Hahhahah! What a freakin' LOSER!

One other outrageous statistic in this city is that 99 percent of the teachers in the City are WHITE and from the burbs.
Lets not forget to give them the credit for the statistic in this story.

My children's teachers have all been white so far. And they do a bang-up job teaching my kids. I know that they show more support towards kids whose parents are activly invovled with the progress of their child's education(which is only natural). I mean, if the parents do not care, then why should the teachers?

In hindsight, I don't think that the teachers are to blame. I think that it's the individuals and the individuals parents who accept their child's failure. The failures are taken with a grain of salt, with an "oh well" attitude. Until these children and their parents give up their "oh well" attitudes, then they will be stuck in their revoving ways.

OH WELL!

Umm, no! Wrong answer. Getting paid constitutes doing your job to the best of your ability. That ability is measured at the level of the "attitudes" of the students. If they do not care, then the teachers shouldn't either.

Think of the classroom teacher as the workplace boss. If you show up to work without a desire to learn how to do your job more proficeintly, then the boss isn't going to care to keep you around to poison the rest of the bunch. That is the way it is. So getting paid doesn't constitute wanting the no-good students around.

Hey Slice, are you sure you are a black person?? You make a lot of sense for being "one of them" living in the ghetto and it was like I was reading something from a different person than the old Dewey guy I used to dislike.. Keep up the great work Dewey.. I'll bet Maddog and Semper fi were as surprised to read what you wrote as I was also!!

I wonder what the percentage of those who dropped out are also baby daddies before 18? Must be around 70%.
What percentage have juvie rap sheets.
What percentage of drop outs get stabbed, shot or killed before age 25.

You reap what you sow in the city.

Thanks! Same Dewey though. Just get sick and tired of the idiots who makes us all look bad, and the ones who think that we are all losers. Most of us are. I'll be the first to admit the obvious. Dead beat dad's(too include mine). Welfare plagued receipients. Non English speaking degenerates. Pants sagging, gun toting, store robbing drop-outs. And parents who just can't seems to get a grip on their households. I can't lie, I have some in my family. But a lot of my family members are college grads(alot). I'm just tired of certain members of my races thinking that this is the way that it's supposed to be. I can't nor do I wish to change the attitudes of these people. They are proving to be a LOST CAUSE.

SnD,I think it was about a year ago that I said to you that you should never be ashame of your race but you should be mad at the ones in your race that makes the rest of you look bad.If my race was doing the same,I would sure as hell be pissed,but that is just the way I look at life.

I bet Rhonda is having difficulty comprehending this. The difference is people like "Slice" is intelligent and honestly knows better. Too much of our youth in all races are trending in lack of; values, morals and not disciplined. If this isn't taught and demonstrated by the parent - well nothing for nothing, what you see is what you get.

There are some in your race doing the same. Just not on the same mentality or the same moronic levels of my race. Your race doesn't kill over sneakers or two bucks. But I have seen and read where whites have killed over woman, drugs or money. No matter though, it's all stupid people who cannot get their act together or think about the consequences before they act.

That is what I was saying,because of the a/holes in my race doesn't make me ashamed and as I said,neither should you be ashamed because of the a/holes in your race.(well maybe Rhonda)
