fk you sam brownback. we don't need an apology because our children and people would have been WAY better off in so many ways had we not integrated public schools.

the reason our people back then thought it was best to integrate was because this government made us pay taxes for public schooling equal to what white people were paying but providing way less for our schools and children.

look at the mess our children are in scholastically today when they used to EXCEL. we just did not have the forth coming resources to feel comfortable enough to maintain the excellent potential our children were showing in segregated schools.

It would be more helpful to sign something that would help all of us, his resignation.

The only thing Brownback and the teabaggers are sorry about is that Jim Crow was abolished.
