Reagan's Wisdom

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

 Somebody Done Agree Wit Me!
In a previous post Is You Trippin the Lefties be Heppin Me, I wrote how the San Bernadino, CA School Board will be further holding back their black students by teaching in Ebonics. I was glad to see comments from many who agreed that this was a travesty, although somewhat disappointed that no one disagreed to incite debate.

However, Project 21, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that has been a leading voice of the African-American community since 1992 is in full agreement that this is stupid. Hollah!

This program is called the S.A.N.K.O.F.A Initiative (Students Accumulating New Knowledge Optimizing Future Accomplishment). Sankofa is a Ghana word for, "We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today." Wow, one word says all that? In looking at the translation, what past are they exactly trying to reclaim? Dead Gangsta Rappers, drug dealers and pimps.

In their press release, Project 21 rightfully so claims that ebonics will not allow someone to acquire or maintain a job. Imagine this from your financial advisor, "Yo Dawg, you want the bling bling, you be needin' to put some Benjamins in dis hot jawn. Ya know what I'm sayin'"

I said it before and I will say it again, by lowering the bar for one group, you doom them to a life of failure. Project 21 member Kevin Martin says it best, "This is a prime example of what people call 'the soft bigotry of low expectations.'"

Peace Out!
