The Reverend Jeremiah, in his never ending effort to explain the differences in black and white, tells us that white students think and learn logically and analytically while black children learn orally and creatively (they are especially good with hip/hop lyrics says Mr. White). Just imagine if Bill Bennett said something like that.
Not too many years ago here on the Bereft Coast down near L.A. Ebonics was being seriously considered as a way of making the whole education mountain easier to climb for black students. Just let them speak whatever gibberish they were comfortable with. And their grades would improve. That is, if the tests were in Ebonics, too. In spite of its irritation, hip/hop possesses a limited field for job opportunities and if there is a merciful Lord watching over us, it too, shall pass — as break dancing did.
Meanwhile, think on it. This lunatic pastor has damned the children of his own race with the “low expectations” that President Bush hoped we would overcome. With a name like Jeremiah, one wonders how he came to his audacity of hope? (Read Lamentations) Flim-flammed himself right into “eatin’ fancy chow and drinkin’ fancy wine.” Get the right flock and you are on Easy Street.
Oh, and here is a theory about Obama’s renunciation today. Obama went to the Rev.Wright last week and said “Rev’run, my er, ah, distancing myself from you in my remarks in Philadelphia didn’t seem to immunize me against my past association with you. See, here’s the problem, I can’t just go out now and say I would like to revise and extend my remarks as I do in the Senate. You gotta throw some red meat out there to get those gun-totin’ unemployed bible-thumpin’ flag-wavers riled. Then I can denounce, renounce, trounce and pounce on you. I thought the “old uncle” line would do it, but these honkies want you sliced and diced and if you want to see me in the White House, you gotta give me an openin’ here.”p>And Jeremiah starts dancin’ and flappin’ his arms and slidin’ around like he’s two steps ahead of a straightjacket and says, “You mean like this, son? You got it!” The Lord works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform br> — Diane Smith /p> p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
