good point, but usually uneducated and ignorant people come from the same--at school they stand a chance!  (Oct 23, 2008 | post #248)

Referring to this quote-------" For all of you that have everything mixed up... this is what happened. We were told by Mr. Beel to go into a "shelter in place" over the intercom. This meant that you lock the doors and students cannot go in or out but you continue to teach as usual. This is different from a lockdown because in a lockdown you must turn off the lights, have silence and someone unknown or a potential threat is on school property or inside a school." I spoke with students that had lights out and doors locked and were to be quiet. Sooo...if we could just move on from that subject. EK took precautions to protect the kids. For you with some sense, Dana is doing well this evening. Your prayers and good thoughts are appreciated. He is at Blodgett Hospital for those that know him. For those that don't- he is not in a gang and actually was shot in his front yard!!He has been raised by his mother AND father in the home. Yes, I admit parts of Kentwood are so bad that I am ashamed, and yes those are the transient rental areas such as was mentioned...Christ ie area/Woodfield Apartments. But Baileys grove and Crystal springs are areas above average in property values and low crime. So...still better than GRPS any day!  (Oct 23, 2008 | post #244)

Um, I am witness you have great kids! Play sports and keep their grades up! Muahs= My two also have Straight A's-play sports and band...And these kids all go to church together. So..you have no idea what you are talking about! And before all the criticism starts.. Dana is not in a gang..His mother and father are in the home.And pretty strict actually- He has been a Kentwood student his entire life. Yep, had trouble with fighting. He is doing OK- according to his girlfriend a few minutes ago. They were even laughing about where he was shot. Now to find the shooters, many students believe they know who it is - so probably will be solved soon.  (Oct 23, 2008 | post #89)

African-American

80% of blk woman are ignorant

BLACK WOMEN AVG 2.2 CHILDREN EACH-HISPANIC 3.4 EACH--PER CDC. • Percentage of all white children in the United States who are being raised in married-couple families: 75% • Percentage of all black children in the United States who are being raised in married-couple families: 34% (U.S. Census Bureau) • Percentage of all white children in the United States who are being raised in female, single-parent homes: 16% • Percentage of all black children in the United States who are being raised in female, single-parent homes: 50% SORRY STEREOTYPES ARE USUALLY BASED ON SOME MEASURE OF FACT, YOU HAVE MORAL AND ETHICAL ISSUES BY CULTURE AS BLACK WOMEN AS A WHOLE. THE LEVEL OF IGNORANCE I ENCOUNTER WITH BLACK WOME IS UNBELIEVABLE!! YELLING, SCREAMING, FIGHTING, INSULTS, COMPLAINING...UGH, GET A CLUE. EVEN YOUR MEN ARE RUNNING TO WHILE WOMEN-THATS WHY YOU CANT FIND A GOOD MAN THEY DONT WANT A BLACK WOMAN.  (Oct 13, 2008 | post #334)

OMG! 80%? IN MY EXPERIENCE TRY 99%. THEY WANT TO YELL AND SCREAM WITHOUT ONE DAMN BIT OF EDUCATION TO BACK IT UP. FUNNY THEY KNOW HOW TO FILL OUT THOSE DAMN SECTION 8 AND WELFARE FORMS THOUGH. I AM SICK OF HEARING THE POOR ME I AM TREATED UNFAIRLY BECAUSE I AM BLACK. SPARE ME! AND THAT IS FROM IN-LAWS THAT DO HAVE REALLY GOOD JOBS AND CAN HANDLE THEMSELVES IN PUBLIC. PREJUDICE IS ALIVE IT IS THE BLACK WOMAN AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. BLACK MEN AT LEAST ARE GETTING A CLUE ABOUT THEIR OWN RACE AND STAY AWAY. TRY RESPECT, KINDNESS, TACT...INSTEAD OF ALWAYS TRYING TO FIGHT SOMEBODY. RAISE YOUR KIDS WITH MORALS AND ETHICS AND A DADDY THEN MAYBE THEY CAN STAY OUT OF PRISON. ITS YOUR OWN D- FAULT! PS THERE IS NO F-ING WAY THAT BUSH IS REAL-HUMAN HAIR WEAVE MAYBE BUT THATS AS REAL AS THAT GETS!  (Oct 13, 2008 | post #333)
