Reply to "Study: Black Teachers Won’t Save Black Students from Receiving Harsher Punishments Than Their White Peers"

It's hard being a black anything including black insects.  A black ant crawls across the floor here, and it's ON!!!! A black spider or spider of any color, it's mental institution.

 

I only had one black teacher the whole time I was in school.  He was from the south. If anything got a little disconcerting, he'd refer to us as  "Hey, boy; Hey, girl!"  That was strange as hell to me 'cause my family had the YT speech patterns down to a science.  On the phone we were and still are YT-ized; talking to us you HAVE NO CLUE.  Took awhile to get adjusted.  He stayed here and after a time became a respected man and an accepted man. This was before the "Civil Rights Movement", before most of you were probably born. It's changed now as has the world.

 

On second thought, I digress, it really HASN'T changed that much; the actors have been replaced but the beat and the story still meanders along.
