    People like you need blacks to use as toilet paper to wipe their own stinking butts.
    I don't need them to wipe my butt, maybe they could stick around and wipe their baby's butts.

    And I will repeat to you that the historical legacy of slavery and the subsequent discrimination that blacks have faced has left them with some serious disadvantages. Do you realize that right up until the mid to late 60s, blacks were victimized by a system that was deliberately set up to condition them to believe that they were less than whites? Not only that, but slavery ended in the south right as the industrial revolution was coming into full force. You had a group of people who had been conditioned to believe that they were inferior all of a sudden occupying these large urban areas without any education. They ended up in slums that became the ghettos of today. They passed down all of those scars to their descendants. Therefore, blacks need some special educational attention. Many times, such children don't have the luxury of having educated parents. Not only that, but if the parents are there, they can't afford the specialized tutoring that many upper middle class families can afford to send their children to. All of that needs to be addressed.

    I disagree. Because otherwise you would not have painted such a racist pictures. Not all blacks live in areas like that. Why don't you show some of the nice areas that blacks live in?

    That might be now.

    We're ALL Black According to Geneticists!


    The jig is up. Thanks to the genetics revolution we now know that there is no such thing as race. The Human Genome Project (HGP) has determined unequivocally that there is the same amount of genetic variation among individuals within a so called racial group as there is between individuals in different racial groups. What that means is that there is no real genetic difference between blacks and whites or between whites and Asians or between any of the so called races.

    Wonder why it's been so hush-hush? I mean, you would think this would be big news. Certainly on the order of Galileo stating that the Earth goes around the Sun and not vice versa. But you haven't heard it on NBC or read it in your local newspaper. It's more or less kept within the high brow community as if the common every day man in the street just couldn't take it. So you can read about it in the Atlantic Monthly or New York Times, but not your home town newspaper. And some professors on ivory tower college campuses are scrambling to prove it isn't so, just like there some who argue that Darwin was a fruitcake and evolution a stunt he pulled to grab the limelight.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Yes. I am aware of that. What educational changes need to be made in order to facilitate education for blacks? They have been attending the same school systems as set up in this country for over a half century now (at least). If they aren't learning as the rest of us are, then what needs to be done?

    I painted nothing I just showed you raw footage to see with your own eyes. So the truth is racist?

    Despite court decisions, most schools are still segregated and the poorest children get the worst schools, despite having the greatest needs. There is also the fact that in most cases the school curriculum has little to do with their daily reality outside of school.

    Solutions: Fund schools based on their needs, not the prosperity of their area. Also, longer school days, more cultural competence and relevance, intelligent use of video and compter technology to grab kid's interest, bring back school libraries, art, music, theater etc. Pay teachers more and eliminate the ones that fail to teach effectively, even if they are making an effort. It should not be easy to become a teacher, we should weed out bad teachers while they are in college getting their Education degree, rather than after they have failed on the job.

    These measures are expensive, but it is cheaper than continuing to feed kids into the criminal "justice' system.

    They need to have teachers that know how to reach them, that are very motivated, that are compassionate and care about them. They need smaller class sizes and more individualized instruction. They need to work longer hours in school and have more days of instruction during a given school year. They need to be around people who are very good role models. They need to have access to computers, to educational software and to people who are actually doing the type of work that makes a difference in society so that they can see how the education they are receiving can make a difference in their lives.

    What do you mean by their daily curriculum has nothing to do with reality outside of school?
