It costs $800,000 to "introduce" urban girls to science careers?

Seriously, I'll introduce them to technology for half a million.

Isn't this just another "charter school" style slush fund?

I smell another epic failure.

You are very much stuck in the distant past. Just roll over and go back to sleep.

Taxpayers can no longer afford to piss away hundreds of thousands of dollars on a program that is little more than a career-fair.

And why just "urban girls"? Why not spend a little of that cash introducing "suburban white males" to nanotech? Didn't the suburban white kids' moms and dads pay most of the money for this program?

The whole point of such a program is the redistribution of wealth in the USA from whites to blacks. The legacy of slavery plays out today in a manner where whites pay the freight and blacks benefit. Hundreds of wealth redistribution programs exist at the federal and state levels, and that is never going to change until the economy collapses, resulting in total political chaos, and a violent class war. There is nothing the tea-party crowd can do to redirect this cultural tide, so enjoy what you have now, because the world is a changin'. BTW-thank Franklin Roosevelt for initiating the changes that have led the USA to the present mess whereby whites are losing their dominance.
