    What has Obama done for the DC students ie: school choice?

    What have the liberals promoted for 40 years concerning a stable Father in the home?

    Answer those truthfully, and it is not if I say so, it is fact.

    And who's fault is that? Less likely to have positive male role models? Well guess what? Maybe the black community should start reinforcing dads being around for their kids instead of being the culture of "that's just my babydaddy".

    Inferior schools? Instead of destroying neighborhoods with gang violence, vandalism, and drug trafficking, perhaps they should build their neighborhoods into something of value so schools have a better funding pool to draw from when the budgets is created from property tax.

    Or better yet, encourage their kids to go to school, get an education, and mind their manners when dealing with others so the schools aren't blacklisted by teacher's unions as "places you might die if you teach there".

    Education opportunity in this country is equal. Every family has the same access to education for their children. They may just have to make a commitment to accessing that opportunity by *gasp* making some sacrifices for the good of their children.

    Re: Attacked Asian Students Afraid To Go to School

    I'll tell you what really burns me about the state of the black community in the US.

    I know, as well as many of you, some outstanding young black kids that are friends with my kids. One of my daughters closest friends on her soccer team is just about the greatest kid in the whole world. Her brothers are as well. Great family, dad's a cardiologist and mom's a lab tech. Work with a guy named LaKendrick (one of those names lol) that is just one heck of a guy and a tech wiz. His kids are high-achieving, super well-behaved, respectful, etc.

    Those kids have to walk out into the world under a stigma that, unfortunately for them, is so prevalent and so often accurate about kids that look like them, that they have to fight it every day. They do, and they thrive, but it's aggravating for them even though they understand why.

    It shouldn't be this way, but they are so vastly the exception to the rule that they have to constantly overcome it, which they do with flying colors.

    But as LaKendrick (or Lake as we call him) says, "Hey, it's tough, but it can be a huge advantage, too, if you educate and polish yourself. It's so rare that you stand out." He talks about this stuff all the time unprompted.

    True, but so sad.

    Replace Billybob with Tyrone, and that becomes a racist statement.

    Not to me.

    I don't mind mocking white racists since that's their modus operandi with others. But thought codes, speech codes, and restrictions on free inquiry and free expression are NOT the path by which we will ever move beyond racism.
