Reply to "They Say You're "Acting White"? You Probably Deserve It"

Like I was speaking to on the other "acting white" thread. This is a jedi mind trick. People are too eager to equate intelligence. The issue is not whether one is acting black or white. Its about what is percieved as being this way. We have to find out where this shift in our society came from? I say that this came after the Civil Rights Movement and we lost a large percentage of black educators. The classrooms that were now "integrated" became headed by white faculty and staff in the south. In the north, this had always been the case. I will say that before civil rights, there were probably more black college educated people from the South than from the North. Once this shift happened, the level of education for Black Americans has gone to pot. As a reference I recommend reading Jonathan Kozol.
Here is what Dr. Na'im Akbar has to say about what he calls "Revolutionary Educators" (you will need RealAudio to hear this)

Think about it.....
