I am going out on a limb here and I apologize now if I offend anyone.
I am sorry this country has been bigoted for many years. They have been so against Indians, blacks, any ethnic group, and now it is surfacing among religious groups and gays.
I, nor my family, ever owned slaves. My family were members of the underground railroad. I cannot help what others have done against anyone. I owe no one an apology for the actions of others who I have no control over. I control only me.
I work in a school district where we have had no racial problems for many years. We now have a superintendent (white
) who wants all his teachers to have "equity" training. He wants us to be able to get "into" the skin of blacks
and see what it feels like to be black
I have always been fair with my students. Black
, Indian or Jewish, Chinese or Mexican. This "equity" training is causing problems we have not had for many years. We have to choose 5 - 10 black
children and make them our "target group" for raising test scores to close the gap between the blacks
How is this fair? I have Mexican students who need me too. I have poor Indian children who never fair well on these tests either.
Why does everything have to come down to a BLACK
have been cheated so much how did Condi get to the White House? What about all the black
doctors and lawyers? How about the black
business owners? How did they make it in such an unfair society?
This country is not fair to ANYONE who is born POOR
If we could push rewind and go back and fix all the wrong doings there would be no one in the U.S. except for the American Indians. There would be no such thing as African Americans because they would all still be in Africa. You do know that the Africans were sold to the white
man by their own people. Blacks
. That is one of the many things left out of the history books.
My grandfather (my mother's father) was sold by a white
man to a white
man. He was a white
slave in a white
world because he was POOR
. He freed himself when he ran away at about 16 years of age. Anybody want to pay me for what happened to my Grandpa?
I have friends of many cultures. Quit crying foul if you are black
. I have black
friends who are sick of it too.
We all belong to the same race. HUMAN
