I wish this story would get more attention. This is an awesome display of motivated youths demanding they be educated. Those youths also happen to come from the black inner city of Detroit. Where's Al Shapton on this one? These kids need exposure. They need a voice larger than a back page story. This is the kind of stuff activists should get behind. Highlighting schools that fail their students. Highlighting absent fathers. These are the roots of the black community's struggles. If they tackle this stuff, I believe they would find a much more accepting and willing public arena to speak in when they set forth claims of racism and inequality. People like Al Sharpton, if they really want to help their race, should work on improving THEIR race and not everyone else's. You can't change the way people perceive you. But you can improve your perception of yourself. Bravo to these kids for taking an interest in their education when no one else would!
