"One commenter in a Christian News story points to a big reason why Detroit schools are showing such pitiful results. “Black peer pressure is an albatross around the neck of academically gifted or motivated black students.” Acting White is a slur black students hurl around their playgrounds. Another commenter quotes President Obama, who famously proclaimed that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” as America’s first black president seemed to praise a young black male killed in a fight with a community security watchdog. But the commenter points out that early in 2009, Obama said nothing about Darrion Albert, who was murdered for acting white at a Chicago bus stop.
Kids can no longer be satisfied with a life of depending upon the generosity of taxpayers to make up for the penalties of ignorance. But just as labor unions provide a shield to protect workers from the consequences of incompetence, Big Brother and the Democrat Party offer a lifetime of public assistance. If teachers are incapable of getting the job done, they must find another way of making a living. And kids unwilling to put forth the necessary effort in school must be told to fend for themselves as the government will no longer feed, clothe, and house generations of welfare recipients."
