Update 2:

Hey, it’s “Let’s be a racist black man” Day!!!

An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.

“In hindsight, this field trip could have been approached and arranged in a better way,” Madison wrote. “But as I reflect upon the look of excitement, enthusiasm and energy that I saw in these children’s eyes as they stood in the presence of a renowned African American rocket scientist in a very successful position, it gave the kids an opportunity to see this type of achievement is possible for even them.

“It was not a wasted venture for I know one day they might want to aspire to be the first astronaut or scientist standing on the Planet Mars.”

What, encouraging MY kids and inspiring them is somehow less important because they are white?   It is MORE important to inspire black kids because they are black?

That’s racism.  Goes both ways dude, and that is a wonderful life lesson you’ve just given all of them.

The idea that the black kids would have their experience lessened by the presence of white kids is racism.



Ok, we need to take our nation BACK.  The full article is linked there – I suggest you go read it on the NBC site.

Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing American Flag Tees?

GEORGE KIRIYAMA  Thu, May 6, 2010

On any other day at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Daniel Galli and his four friends would not even be noticed for wearing T-shirts with the American flag. But Cinco de Mayo is not any typical day especially on a campus with a large Mexican American student population.

Galli says he and his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break when the vice principal asked two of the boys to remove American flag bandannas that they wearing on their heads and for the others to turn their American flag T-shirts inside out. When they refused, the boys were ordered to go to the principal’s office.

They said we could wear it on any other day,” Daniel Galli said, “but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it’s supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today.”

The boys said the administrators called their T-shirts “incendiary” that would lead to fights on campus.

How is it that THEIR holiday supercedes our rights here in America?  Time to send them all packing.

Then one student says this:

Freshman Laura Ponce, who had a Mexican flag painted on her face and chest, told the Morgan Hill Times that Cinco de Mayo is the “only day” Mexican-American students can show their national pride.

Laura, your national pride, you little twit, should be aimed at your country.  You’re either American or Mexican – pick one but I think I speak for a lot of American when I say you can’t be both.


A good friend, Enas Yorl… I worry about him.

He’s a WoW Zombie.

No, I don’t actually worry about him.  He’s a big boy.  It’s fun to pretend that I’m worried for his well-being – but he pops up every now and then.  He’s good.
