This has been my experience. There are a few kids that make it through by their own sheer will and determination but the parent(s) sabatoge most of them. It is really unfortunate that so much opportunity for betterment goes to waste. And this goes for kids of all color. Color has nothing to do with crappy parents.

Sounds good and all but what will the curriculum be? I fear it would be indoctrination to hate conservatives. Much like colleges and high schools are today.

A minority celebrity speaks out against a white POTUS, and now that minority celebrity is qualified to head the education agency. 😏😂

While some of his views man be foolish politically his actions on this topic are phenomenal. While it may be seen as a tax write off, dumb idea etc by some at least he is trying. I spend 5+ years doing a big brother program in East Dallas and can tell you the African American community needs a role model that reminds them to stay with their families, finish school and work hard.

He has different views as you, that isn't brainwashing. What he just said is the opposite of that.

Just give it time. You will have them thinking all f..ked up in no time. I try to read what you spew with understanding but you are all over the board in you mindsets. Some day maybe you will wake up to the realization that your just an out of tune liberal. Then maybe it will be clear to you.

What dont you understand? I'm very straight forward with my beliefs.

Be good to everyone, no matter if they have a differing opinion. I never resort to name calling. I never insult anyone personally for their beliefs.

My Kids are, and will be great because of the time and effort I put into their upbringing. They are and will continue to be respectful and self reliant because that's what I show them and teach them.

I have met a million people that dont agree with me, but not one will say that I'm not respectful and honest.

Opinions do not matter on this forum unless they fall in line. If they don't then they are incorrect somehow and subject to insults. Folks preach one thing and turn right around and say the opposite. I agree with about half of the things said on here and just chalk the rest up to the blatant myopia, however I do learn a lot about various beliefs.

So you agree with half of the opinions on here, yet the ones that don't fall in line with yours, you consider as blatant myopia? Interesting!

Again, I learn a lot from the opinions that I do not agree with by spending time gleaning information from various resources that i would not usually look into instead of writing them off to "libtard" boo kaki. It seems that many people are stuck in "educating" themselves through the lens of one side instead of gathering all information from all avenues of information or misinformation while forming thought. I deeply value opinions that differ from mine because it either substantiates or invalidates my own beliefs. Admittedly, I have changed the way I look at politics through this process and am proud of it.
