Having worked with both low-income and more affluent kids, across races, I found it to be far easier to broaden the horizons of low-income kids than others. Far less resistence.<quoted text>Why is it that only conservatives and whites have to "come down from the mountain"? Why don't leftists and minorities? Why aren't ghetto blacks scolded to learn that "there's a big world out there"?
And spare me about fees and costs. I've watched kids in my own district sell candy bars and magazines to raise money for hockey with a big chunk of it going to pay for an equipment bank that we ran out of a neighbor's garage. These things can be and are done by decent, responsible parents (and there were single moms just as involved as any fathers and couples.) YOU and your kind are the ones living in your own bubble who are either too afraid, too closed-minded or too stupid to step outside and see that life isn't always what you think it is.
Where have you lived in your life, Che? Inner city? Suburbs? Rural areas? I've done all three. Ever lived in another country? I have. Ever worked manual labor before settling into a professional career? I have.
If anyone is perched high on a mountain of bullsh!t, it's sanctimonious tools like you.
More affluent kids, and their parents, were far more fearful of what lay beyond their boundaries.
