Yeah, are they going to PREPARE these kids to be able to read that well by the first grade? That's one of the biggest problems with our schools right now, in their desperation to plug-n-chug to stay in compliance with NCLB, they leave no room for students to actually study, therefore, learn what they are being taught. Now, they have teachers teaching second graders like they're in a lecture class, then they test them. What ever happened to teach, practice, study, then test? But, it also...

It will force more fundamental changes. What will it do to supply and demand regarding jobs. If qualified people are a dime a dozen then WHAT? I am not using that as an excuse to not do it.

So quickly, are you implying that society would be forced to be more equal? I don't think that it will be equitable even if everyone had access to equal education. There's always going to be those who are more driven, more intelligent than others as well as those who are not as intelligent. However I do think that people have the ability to excel in what they are highly proficient in. Its those talents that will eventually reshape the society.

This is a great example of the nonsense Europeans brought to Africa. And as a result of colonalism, this sick mindset was absorbed into African culture as custom/tradition. But quite frankly it is nothing more than supertision[sp]. This practice has NEVER brought back the dead, have never perform a good. The only thing it has done is pulled Africans even more back in primitive and backwards thinking. And what' so disturbing is Europeans used this psychological tool to control and gain power.

I am thrilled that these idiots were prosecuted for this gruesome crime, I only regret that it was not life without the possibility of parole. However, Europeans may have manipulated Africans psychologically with concepts of superstition, I don't believe that Africans' belief in witchcraft and superstitions did not exist before Europeans. Witchcraft and sorcery was already highly ingrained in many African cultures for centuries before the slave trades, although I doubt that the heinous...

Witchcraft and soccery[sp] derived from the darkest pit of Europe....not Africa. It is the Europeans who brought this mindset to Africans [in 6th century-during the same time Arabs began invading North Africa and brought with them the originally slave trade]]. Although Africans had their own form of spirit-seeking....it is much like that of Native Americans. I think the term is animist or something to that order. Worshipping multiple gods i.e. omnigod. It is absolutely a myth that Africans,...

By the way....the reason I went into a historical rant is because I grow tired of folks thinking that this backward barbaric form of worship comes from Africa.

Just like colonalism has a long term affect on Africans and their ancedents throughout the world, the same can be said of these dark images of spiritual worship. I don't like it.

If black cops were doing this to white people there'd be no black cops in existence. They'd manage to blow every black cop straight to Hell in a nonosecond.
