Welcome to Obama's post-racial America.
Anyone who doesn't think this near-daily, incendiary rhetoric will come to a boiling point has his head in the sand.

Lewis Points Finger at ‘Rich White People’ for School Problems

by Nancy Harty

A day before the first set of school closings was set to begin, Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis had some harsh words about how the Chicago Public Schools are funded and managed, blaming much of the district’s problems on racism.

WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty reports, at a luncheon on education reform, Lewis told members of the City Club that Chicago is the most segregated city in America.

“When will there be an honest conversation about poverty and racism and inequality that hinders the delivery of an education product in our school system? When will we address the fact that rich white people think they know what’s in the best interest of children of African-Americans and Latinos, no matter what the parents’ income or education level?” she asked.

Lewis said minority neighborhoods are disproportionately disinvested by the city, and see more foreclosures and school closures.

“It’s as if there were a concerted effort to make sure that these are not walkable, thriving, healthy communities,” she said.

Lewis also blamed banks for driving people out of their homes through illegal foreclosures, resulting in underutilized schools and a smaller tax base.

“If the banks had not crashed our economy, the district would now have nearly $180 million more to invest in our classrooms,” she said.

As for efforts to reform schools, Lewis said CPS should work with teachers to improve schools, and not appointed board members who’ve never stepped foot in a classroom.

“When did all these venture capitalists get so interested in the lives of minority students in the first place? There’s something about these folks who love the kids, but hate their parents,” Lewis said.“As long as the status quo of elites continues to impress upon our district, these horrible policies that may work very well in corporate environments – but are simply not good for children – the Chicago Teachers Union will be portrayed as oppositionists.”

She said inequality has prevented people from embracing more revenue for schools through higher property taxes.

“If you look at the majority of the tax base for property taxes in Chicago, they’re mostly white, who don’t have a real interest in paying for the education of poor black and brown children,” she said.

She offered suggestions for school funding instead of more cuts and layoffs – pointing instead to TIF funds, taxes on commuters and financial trades, and what she called a more equitable tax system to bring in billions of dollars for schools.

Africans who reject Christian morality do not do very well in any of the Western European Nations such as Britain, America, Portugal, Spain, Brazil or even Haiti which is 100% Black Rule. Their only option is playing the race card in the hope that Whites will simply give in due to White Guilt and the concept of the White Man's Burden that Blacks (or Browns) are ultimately the responsibility of Whites and not of themselves.

It is not rich white people completely. It is also lazy black people who live off the system for a free handout and do not pay taxes because they can, they cry discrimination and teach their children it is okay to be irresponsible because they are discriminated against by white people. Blacks have a better chance to succeed than whites because of laws enacted, but they would rather be lazy. Young black girls are having baby after baby and cashing in, they are just carrying on a family tradition. Bad parenting and no parenting is what is wrong in Chicago. Blacks are abusing the system and that money could be used for schools. Karen Lewis is a racist

Almost 80 percent of the children in the Chicago Public Schools are minorities. But, it's racism.

Ya know, this fat piece of obama excrement is testifying that her blackdom is incapable of running schools. And all the data proves it with her.

It's not just stupidity -- it's typical union corruption.
The kind Obama helped organize before uninformed idiots elected him.
