    There is no "greed" component serving the GOP to keep a group poor and uneducated. They derive no power, no profit, nothing, from such a group.
    Really? Not sharing power or wealth is not gaining power/wealth either personally or for your interests?

    That truly makes absolutely no sense.

    what we're talking about is institutional racism, but I've stopped trying to explain that on these threads .... on these threads it takes a cross burning or lynching to convince some posters that racism exists ...
    Even that, I think would not get them to. Or they'd blame it on Democrats because they don't understand that there was a time when the radical progressives were Republicans and the Dems were conservative.

    It seems to have been beyond you. Try again. Or don't.

    We can't be sure, but I would bet that the board does have similar people, I would just guess they are more similar in their ideology than their bank accounts.

    Wonder if that ideology could be more at fault for the failures than race or wealth.
    I proved PlayDrive's post to be bull**** early on by posting the membership roster of the Chicago School Board, only two of the six are white (the CEO is black). Of those two, one is probably really rich, the other probably not so much (being a retired associate professor). The rest are black, biracial or latino.

    I know, I just want one of the people defending her to point out the rich racist bastard doing all the harm. So far all I got is some invisible racist in the sky making policy that the board has no control over.

    Wealth is being shared, but how do you share power? Through quota systems?
