Re: Battling Campus Racism-Leaders Demand Action

Empty Purnata ·
I think we need more college campus progressive groups. As active as the College Republicans are these days, we REALLY need more Progressives to step up to the bat and counter-act this current retro-gressive revolution in America. We need PROGRESSIVES, since the Dems are too weak to step up to the bat (and half of the time, they are in cahoots with the Republicans' racist and elitist agenda). We especially need progressive groups on campuses for Minority students. As a current college...

Not public education, quality education through the siphoning off of funds by private schools. Of course it is the logical chain of events. The issue includes transferring money from public, non-profit entities to private, for-profit entities. Private entities compete with other private entities and their incentive to be the best is profit . To that end they are empowered to make student admission decisions that public schools cannot make.

You know people believe that teachers are invincible to the societal ills of our world, but teachers have been subjected and exposed to the same ignorance about the limited intellectual competency of Blacks as everyone else.
