School Spirit or Gang Signs? 'Zero Tolerance' Comes Under Fire - NBC

School Spirit or Gang Signs? 'Zero Tolerance' Comes Under Fire - NBC

Is the American School system by in large For or Against Children of Color. Throughout the corridors of State capitals laws reminiscent of the Jim Crow era are used to justify non-funding for education, incarceration (enslavement), and murder of Americans.

"The federal government found that of 3 million children suspended or expelled during the 2010-11 school year, the overwhelming majority — 7 out of 10 — were black, Latino or kids with disabilities...
This echoes independent studies, like a 2013 report
by the University of California at Los Angeles Civil Rights Project,
which found that one in four African-American students in secondary
schools was suspended at least once in the 2009-10 academic year,
compared to one in 16 white students." 
“They figured I was a gang member because of my color.”

Court to Kansas: Spend More on Schools - Businessweek

Court to Kansas: Spend More on Schools - Businessweek
"Today’s state Supreme Court ruling focused on two main issues. One finding was clear-cut: The court said the budget cuts hit poorer school districts more than wealthy ones, which had more local tax revenue to supplement state support.
That created “unreasonable, wealth-based disparities” that were unconstitutional. If legislators don’t fix the problem on their own, the trial court has the right to enjoin a specific solution."

Disney Bets $1 Billion on Technology to Track Theme-Park Visitors - Business Week

Disney, Spying on me, on no it can't be, not the sweetheart of Fantasy.  As new generations become more dependent on technology and places greater trust in corporations in the name of convenience, Governance will not longer be of the People nor by the People. It's Governance for the Corporations at the Expense of the People.

Corporations shall continue to field more advanced systems to track and control citizens. Unless the people unit, Governments especially states at the behest of corporations shall continue to sanction such actions and deny citizens the right to stop this imminent takeover of self determination.

These 9 Maps Should Absolutely Outrage Southerners -
It's not rocket science, anyone who has heard and seen the southern philosophy, the end results are quite clear.

  • "In fact, as many as one in four Southern kids lives in poverty, compared to the national average of one in five. " 
  • "If you want to achieve the American Dream, don't move to the South.
    That's because states in the South have extremely low levels of economic

Leonard Pitts Jr.: Healing starts with '12 Years a Slave' - San Jose Mercury News

Leonard Pitts Jr.: Healing starts with '12 Years a Slave' - San Jose Mercury News

Mr. Pitts, I believe African Americans trepidation is derived from being
feed up with Hollywood. A slave, pimp, prostitute, murderer or dead is the only
time Hollywood recognize Americans of African descent.

To rephrase your mythic perspective, Americans of European descent prefers
mythic conceptions of what they truly are, Pretentiously Evil. Although, this
is not indicative of all, it's the flip side of the same coin, the masses stand
by and let Evil do its dirt in the name of Justice and God.

On no, African American understand all too well without paying a cent to
Hollywood. With more than 150 years after emancipation and fifty plus years
after the civil rights bill, the reality of 12 years is played out daily, in
Real Time. The American Reality of Jordan Davis, Renisha McBride , Trayvon
Martin, Marissa Alexander , Sean Bell and Medgar Evers, is a constant and clear
indicator of the injustice and terror African Americans face daily.

I ask, why it is always the aggressor demanding the terrorized to seek
reconciliation? That great chimera is not "Race,” it’s the Evil that greed
do while rationalizing falsehoods to justify the Demons within.

African Americans have always sought the answers to why Europeans have such
hate for people of African Descent. The only way to stop a bully is to standup
and with absolute opposing force that clearly demonstrate humanity will no
longer accept such actions. Be a leader of self, stop asking, demand and be
ready though the acquisition of knowledge, skill and ability to stand in
defense of Humanity.

Blended learning: It's time for Morgan Hill to embrace a more effective approach - San Jose Mercury News

Public Schools can accomplish blended learning without abdicating rights of citizen in the process.  It's also time for citizens to hold the legislators accountable and stop treating schools as daycare centers. In Afro American communities the situation is dire. After years of spending billions only the predators of wealth has benefited. Afro Americans on average still rank last in educating its pupils and citizenry.

Trey Songz - Heart Attack and Manhattans, A Comparative Analogy

Some Battles are worst than others when we lose sight of life's true values.
Togetherness is Key, Understanding is the Answer

This reminds me of another song that shall always stand the test of time.

There's no house without a home 
And there's no man who wants to be alone 

There's no child without a dream 
And there's no song without a meaning 

There's no life without a plan 
Every woman wants herself a good man 

There's a heartaches without tears 
And time just can't go by without the years 

You know there's no stars without the night
and there's no wrong without a right 

There's no good without a bad 
And when one man is happy , the other man is sad 

That's how I know
