And twenty years from now, the students will sue over this, just like Indian students sued over residential schools. And we’ll all have to pay the bill. Again.
“Instead of wasting money on ‘afro-centric’ skools were their just going to teach them a fuller cirriculum of ‘Hate Whitey-Blame Whitey’ agit-prop,why not organize student trips back to Africa.
“Two week camping excursions to such African wonderlands like say, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Kenya, the Congo or the Sudan will probably be enough to convince every Blax student the importance of getting an education.”
“I also taught summer school in an inner city school with many black kids, many of the girls wearing hijab. The insolence, sense of entitlement, and plain bad manners of a good number of these kids was most disturbing, not to mention that, academically, the standard was pretty low. (One ‘hijabbed’ young miss, about 10, refused to stand for ‘O Canada’: ‘It’s not my country.’ That only happened on the first day as I made it altogether clear that sitting for the national anthem was NOT an option.)

That is true not only of individuals, but also of institutions like all-black Dunbar High School in Washington, which for 85 years brought quality education to its students. Dunbar students exceeded national norms on IQ tests, years before the Supreme Court said that separate education was inherently unequal.
“Dunbar was located within walking distance of the Supreme Court that essentially declared its existence impossible…”
