Well, here comes the "Silver Rights" preachers attempting to cover up a faulty school system!

Lets face the truth.

Inner city young Negroes just aren't capable of passing tests, because they're just not smart enough!

The teachers are changing the scores because they don't want to lose their jobs!

Poor Negroes generally reject getting an education because their parents don't have a good education.

The Atlanta School System spends more money per pupil than any other school system in Ga., yet they consistently score LOWER then the surrounding counties around them.

You cannot take a sow's ear, and make a silk purse, neither can you get blood from a turnip.

While all of these "Revs" are clamoring for attention,(as usual), I've seen no preachers calling for revamping the school system, asking for truant officers,or having a "Get back in school" rally.

All these misguided Negroes want, is to get on TV, so they can shift the burden on,(you guessed it), the WHITE MAN and "racism"!

The Atlanta School Board, is controlled by Negroes, not whites, so who's to blame. Once upon a time when whites ran the school system, Atlanta Schools was hailed as one of the better school system in the South, now look what has happened since Negroes have taken over.

Here's what happened twenty years ago with Negroes on the board.

It appears that so far,that no schools taken over by Negroes, ever progress, but rather becomes fragmented.

But, this is what the "Progressive" Negroes want.

Regress would be a much better term.

This scandal and the issues it exposed are very serious, and a discussion of what happened and what should be done deserves better than the first five posts.

The teachers who changed test scores need to be disciplined harshly. IMAGINE being a kid who thought he'd earned a good grade being told that he didn't after all. Some kids could be suicidal, watching their plans, the smiles on their parents faces fade to NOTHING.

There has to be an in-depth probe into WHY these teachers felt so pressured and so hopeless that they gave up and turned to an enormous fraud that will destroy their careers and devastate their communities.

The god-squad on TV bitching about the logical legal consequences of such a betrayal of kids and community should, for once, really think about what's best for the kids and parents who are now sitting there wondering..."Was my grade changed...am I going to get my scholarship...how do I find out....Is my child going to go to college or not...I thought...I thought I did ok...you mean I DIDN'T do ok?...Does this mean I'm so stupid that my teacher had to lie for me...?"

AND, what does it say to an entire community when a whole bunch of religious leaders ENDORSE CHEATING?

Nausea- and I didn't finish it.

It is so much easier to hate than to do the hard work of finding solutions.

I know full well that you are a dedicated bigot, AND that I am wasting my time, but I'm going to answer your post:

I worked for years with kids from an impoverished neighborhood known as a "rural white ghetto". Think "trailer trash".

Every single social problem that you ascribe to being black, was destroying those kids and their community, and there wasn't and still isn't a black person for miles.

It's about poverty. Self-destructive behaviors are both the cause AND the consequence of poverty, and poverty perpetuates itself.

We have done an absolutely miserable job of combating poverty in this nation. Everything tried seems to have backfired. MAYBE someday, we'll figure out how to "fix" poverty and its consequences. Maybe.

Here's something else for you to consider: One of the many characteristics common to those poor white kids and families was racism. They were all bigots like YOU. Even the little ones. The pervasive racial bigotry in that "rural white ghetto" is common to the lowest socioeconomic strata of white Americans. Fact.

On theory for why racism is most common among the poorest, least-educated whites is that their frustrations and misery has to be blamed on ANYONE or ANYTHING other than themselves. Poor whites are aware of their inferiority and failures, and need to make themselves believe that while they might be poor, addicted, incarcerated, on welfare, single parents, uneducated, unemployed and pathetic, that they can make themselves feel better by trashing black people.

A typical profile for a white bigot is a poor, bitter, addicted or alcoholic, un-or-underemployed, single mother or sperm-donor that can't or won't pay child support. A white bigot is probably on welfare. S/he has been to prison or is in prison. He has been violent toward women and/or children. S/he didn't graduate from HS. S/He doesn't own a home and never will. He typically has lost his driver's license, more than once; for DUI and/or for having no insurance. He has way too many tattoos and piercings. He smokes or chews. S/he has rotten teeth. He will die at a younger age than the average white American...AND both are absolutely certain that it is SOMEONE ELSE'S fault that they are pathetic losers.

I probably just held up a mirror for you to look into. Ugly, aren't you?

Actually, I believe blacks have less to fear from "trailer trash" than the real scourge in this once great Nation: The Disingenuous White Liberal. This person lives in a "Whiteopia", a place where they have to neither deal with "trailer trash" OR black people, thus their theories about fighting poverty are purely hypothetical. It is these people (Pelosi, Reed, Obama) who seem happy to funnel trillions of dollars of taxpayer money into projects that simply keep people dependent on the government. Contrary to your firmly held beliefs, I'm NOT a bigot. I realize that Appalachia is in no danger of becoming Manhattan any time soon. But the sooner people realize what DOESN'T WORK (throwing money at the problem via Social Programs that have made poverty numbers WORSE since Johnson and refusing to discuss personal responsibility) the better.
And as long as people are AFRAID to talk about the real pathologies in our inner cities (rampant OOW birth, BOB crime, etc) for fear of being labeled "bigots", the longer it will be before something meaningful is done.

OK. I'll take you at your word. In spite of directing me to a ludicrously racist website.

Tell me how you would tackle the issues. I crown you dictator for the day...or however long it takes you to get back to me.

And, I was a bit surprised. I am used to being viciously abused in these debates.

And if you ask me, the single most disastrous phenomenon of modern times is the PC movement. Without PC, there would have been no 9/11. There would not be the shameful and devastating tailspin of academic failure of our young. We wouldn't be shipping jobs overseas and importing foreign indigents to do the jobs Americans on assistance won't....But that's just me.
