    Yeah, I don't believe in simple explanations for these things, really.

    For a lot of people it is not difficult. For many others, yeesh.
    Actually they had to catch me early on. I had to go to reading classes when I was 5 in order to catch up to my grade level. Even afterwards it was a struggle for years.

    Then you have to compete with the numerous demands, struggles on kids down in such a place like Detroit. Then you get to their learned indifference....and yadda yadda. Eventually it is as if they and the world around them is messed up.

    Unfortunately, that is true. Wayne State is well known in this area as a diploma mill. I think they should have their accreditation revoked. They awarded a master's degree to a man who can barely read and write, and he's not even close to being the only one.

    A crack baby is a child who was expossed to crack cocaine by thier mother when they were a fetus. Many of these children grow up with learning disabilities. There was an epidemic of crack use in Detroit as in many other cities like Chicago, Buffalo, and Redondo Beach.

    I'm socially liberal, I'm a fiscal conservative. Given the choices I had to pick from when choosing my lean on this forum, slightly liberal seemed to be the best fit, even though it's far from perfect. Conservative in my state means social conservative, and I think that those people, at least locally and state-wide, are just as bad as the group that runs the City of Detroit.

    Incorrect, they are usually born premature and addicted to crack--both medical issues are treatable, the baby is as capable of learning as any other.

    There was an epidemic of crack use in Detroit as in many other cities like Chicago, Buffalo, and Redondo Beach.
    Please provide links showing the crack epidemic in Redondo Beach.

    IMHO - your pathetic ramblings are of the ignorant and racist variety. You mean to say it's hard to teach 'black' babies to read, right?

    You and the Badmutha see Detroit as one big ghetto. And you see black people as less intelligent monkeys. You hide your racism behind snide little remarks -- but we catch your drift.

    It's not hard to teach crack babies, black babies, white babies or any baby to read. It requires loving parents and devoted teachers.

    I said nothing of the sort. I was born and raised downriver in a Detroit suburb. I saw what drugs did to that city. So please stop with the personal attacks.

    Answer my question -- why is it hard to teach a crack baby to read? Tell us what you meant when you said that.

    why do you call people racist when they post factually correct statements. the fact is American black society has several detrimental social pathologies that cause many members of that community to underachieve or end up in jail. It is not racist to note those pathologies-indeed real racism involves enabling such behavior by castigating those who point it out.

    its easy, anyone who has physical or mental challenges is going to be harder to educate than a child that comes from a nurturing family and does not have to deal with both addiction and living in an environment that produced such an addiction. People who are crack addicts can be safely said to be less attentive parents than most people and have low self esteem and often poor work and social habits
