    People are quick to point to race as a factor, when (at least in my opinion) it has much more to do with a person's economic status than their race. That is not to say that racism is something we should ignore, or that racism doesnt exist. I am simply stating that money plays a huge role in most things. If you think rich black kids, and poor black kids are treated the same, or that rich white kids and poor ones are, you are sadly mistaken. In my experiences schools, like many things dont care about your race, they care about money. I am not saying to ignore anything, i am saying there is more to it, much more, than simply race.

    Come on she nailed it. Face it most of the public employee union members of the police, fire and public schools are white and with future unattenable defined benefits, free of obamacare health insurance taxes, and impossible to terminate contracts for employment they are among the rich and probably are mostly white.

    Astounding! Even with a black mayor, it's the whites' fault.

    Well lets just make **** up why don't we.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    They must be pleased with "White Flight" then so they can do all these things for themselves.

    I don't apologize for having an opinion - deal with it. I didn't write "factually" or "certainly" I wrote "probably" as I wouldn't even begin to look at where the racial divide of the police, fire and educators of Chicago is; but I will continue to hypothesize that "MOST" are white and I will continue to hypothesize that they are RICH and more responsible for the demise of the public system in that community than any other group of PEOPLE. So ignore me if you don't like my opinion I could care less about yours.

    Oh....and if you want to bring up Paine, we can discuss his views on the responsibility of govt to progressively tax to fund social services for the poor. That is very apropos.
    Of course not, first it wasn't a government yet and second he was busy calling for revolution against the Brits, and then later the French. And why would YOU bring up anything he wrote, you've already dismissed his views as "empty rhetoric".

    Um, Paine died in the US after we won, post where he ever called for revolution against the US govt. He was an anti-monarchist, not an anarchist.

    And why would YOU bring up anything he wrote, you've already dismissed his views as "empty rhetoric".
    Um, let me remind you, the call was for revolution against the US fed govt, Paine never called for that, ergo not Paine's words.

    They are the words of a Bircher/Bagger.

    This is funny. The nation is broke.The instruments of government power are being used against the American people (IRS). The EPA is about to be used as a weapon of mass impoverishment by this Democratic president and the democratic party. We are about to have the nation's culture and voters dramatically altered by the addition of nearly 50 million poor, uneducated people. These things are treason. What part of this is causing you problems?
    None of it since it is pure Bagger/Bircher nonsense, mixed with a knownothing view of economics that has no connection to reality.

    While from a 'liberal' point of view $17,000,000,000,000 in debt and almost half the US population on government assistance of some sort is 'progress'. How long do liberals have to study economics for them to believe that is a good thing?

    It is ironic that someone who wants to infer a lack of education on my part has a post with one incomplete sentence and 2 false pretenses.
