You're questing his ability to raise children because..........his son or daughter is out of control? Or because he took a position you don't agree with? So far the only uncritical part of discussions around Will Smith are those who do not actually engage critically in the substance of what he's said. ....of course its easier to just claim that Will Smith doesn't really know what he's talking about because he's not Black he's "Hollywood" or some other such nonsense.

If the kids are being sabotaged in grade school then what do you expect? How many children find grade school boring? I can't recall a single interesting book provided or suggested by any of my grade school teachers. But when I started reading science fiction on my own my mother told me they were "something crazy". I loaned a book to a Black woman I was trying to hit on written by a famous Black female SF author. I think it is her best book.

People might have 100 fancy names for their killing, but if they kill anything that breathes, born or unborn, they're a killer/murderer. It's just that some pay a penalty for their killing while others walk away SCOTT FREE!!!!! However the killing is done/accomplished, there will be a PRICE TO PAY!!!!!

Thank you Sista appreciate the grace. Yeah I have given Obama a lot of benefit of the doubt the first 2 years when he had majority power in both houses. The reason he lost the House in 2010 was because he turn out to be an establishment servant like no other in history and it demoralized the liberal base. I still voted in 2010 and knew in my heart he was not what he claim to be. I kinda think he wanted to lose the House so it would be cover for his following establishment policies.
