    I confident the teacher's union will solve all the problems at that school.

    It's just a damn shame that the students themselves have to demand a decent education, and the parents/school system aren't already offering it.

    "Thread: What blacks should be protesting: Detroit high students revolt against staff"

    Nice to see you play the race card right there in the title.

    So, is it safe to assume you think blacks should stick to protesting black issues and whites should protest white ones?

    Racially divide much?

    While the Trayvon Martin shooting was certainly tragic, and I do think Zimmerman should be charged...theres LOTS for the Sharptons of the world to get involved with. Blacks in America are getting slaughtered daily. There should be marches, demonstrations...protests across the country. Something should be done.

    FBI- 2010
    White on White murders 2,777
    White on Black murders came to 218;
    Black on White murders came to 447, while
    Black on Black murders came to 2,459.

    Tragic. Truly.

    Re: What blacks should be protesting: Detroit high students revolt against staff

    MarineTPartier brought up an interesting point: Jews have indeed suffered, had everything taken from them, mass executions of entire families . . . in much more recent times than blacks have been in slavery. Why are they successful? They value education would certainly be at the top of a list of reasons.

    Until blacks respect themselves and both value and demand an excellent education, they are doomed. And until we, as a nation, stop keeping them in "slavery" by facilitating their decision not to value these things, we're going to be stuck with more of the same. And so are they.

    Black-on-Black homocide doesn't give him enough facetime.

    I dont know...if they celebrate every death like its a blood orgy as they have done with the Trayvon Martin shooting (that 1 death occured on 26 February...wonder how many dead bodies have littered the streets since then) seems to me Revrund Al should have plenty o face time. Since Im sure they are truly invested in the welfare of citizens everywhere (and not just making this a race baiting issue), imagine the good they could do.

    Sad thing is...2010 was on OFF year. Im not sure but considering the death rates in Chicago alone I think they will by far surpass those totals. oh...and thats 'just' the deaths...not the total numbers of shootings. Hell we had 13 in one event in Florida on the day of the martin rally.

    Actually, now that you've made me think about it in that way, you're right.

    What IF Sharpton and Jackson tackled one American city? Detroit? Chicago? New York? And made a stand. This was last week:

    CHICAGO (AP) - A nephew of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was one of 13 men shot - two fatally - during a violent six-hour stretch in Chicago, another indication that violence is on the rise in the nation's third-largest city.
    Why not? No, I mean, really. Why don't they do this??

    Do they not care? Does it not serve their best interests to get this black-on-black violence under control? What?

    There are times on DP when a DISlike button would be desireable. This is one of those times.
