Americans Under the Influence of Color

Thursday, June 8, 2006

I go through this is practically every school I teach at. People who go to church, send money to missionaries, lend a hand at school and otherwise engage in good samaritan activities, cannot seem to get the idea that people of other colors and nationalities are real people too. Or, they do, but they... Sign in to see full entry.

Immigration -- It's time to act............................................

The immigration bill passed by the senate, 62 to 36, will allow 200,000 new immigrants per year. It will more than double the 11 million amount of illegal immigrants bandied around. It is a reasonable and fair way to include new Americans. I like it. I realize there are those who do not. The house... Sign in to see full entry.

Round Up the Usual Suspects................................................

I can say this: I had my own constituency. They had no one else, like his did. I suffered the slings and arrows of racist behaviors In a government setting. Then you came along... You said you were here to help; you lied to the man. You told me obliquely that you would destroy me I didn't believe... Sign in to see full entry.

"White and Black", New Original poetry by kingmi

My Retort to JanesO vis-a-vis my exhortation of White America..............

The past is history. We need to learn from it and move on. We are presently in the middle of perpetrating the same crime against Mexican children, as we did for fifty years against African-American children.

Final Conclusion: Certain Americans Are Expendable.........................

My vice principal visited me on Tuesday to s=ask if I intended to be at school on Monday May 1st. I was taken aback because I have a perfect attendance record going for the last seven years -- not counting emergency leave for my mother's and daughter's hospitalization.

These bloggers are screwed. That's what it means, for real!...............

Argument #2, as seen in the book Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol.. Financial proposals to balance the low-tax revenues in the property-poor neighborhoods, do not assure “equity”. True equity is not possible, as this would involve a social revolution which would have to have taken place... Sign in to see full entry.

Bloggers who do not care and do not try, have a very good reason why.......

I have jotted down what I can remember about the book: Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools by Jonothan Kozol. Argument # 1. The major argument of the book is that geo-politically, the schools, located in the property-poor areas of a large city -- such as East St. Louis, Illinois;... Sign in to see full entry.
