today, i see in the local paper that my wife has been sending letters to the editor:
wonder how many people crying about the â€œracist headlineâ€ on Jan. 18 (â€œI ain’t kill them kidsâ€) assumed the speaker was black without reading beyond the bold print? Many assume that uneducated blacks are responsible for heinous crimes such as the Hovey Street murders. However, when you enslave a race, pretend to free them and underfund urban school systems that educate them, what results do you expect? Disproportionate numbers of blacks are in the criminal justice system because we are not educating our inner-city youth to their fullest potential, and we cry racism over poorly written headlines instead of poorly written legislation.
