Homeschooling, school vouchers, accountability, all are ways to combat ‘the soft bigotry of low expectations’ when it comes to educating our children to become successful and productive members of society.Â That goalÂ isn’t a race thing, its a human thing.Â Â The demographics of ‘the educated’ can, however, be described in racial and ethnic terms, but only at the risk of being counterproductive.Â There is evidence now that homeschooling among Black families is on the rise, the results of which can only be good for the kids, the families, and society.
What matters is what counts, and whatÂ counts is our children, not brick and mortar schools, not teachers unions, not bureaucrats.

The shift to the left in the political spectrum that the democrat party hasÂ achieved in the last year, has caused them to leave their legacy-base behind.Â As a result, Sen. Joe Lieberman is now running as an independent for his own three-term seat because today’s democrat party has shunned him
.Â What with his 90% voting record in sync with his party.Â About the only thing I can think of that democrats are color-blind in with respect to race is their quest for the liberal mantra.Â Now Blacks aren’t liberal enough
.Â And this, from a constituency that votes 92% democrat.Â
Aside from the arrogance of this party in, by everyone’s estimation, taking Black voters for granted, now they are tighteningÂ control and telling Blacks that they aren’t liberal enough?Â Â
This repulsive thought aside, all I can say to Black voters is, the republican party welcomes you.Â Â Politics aside,Â your vote is not decided by party affiliation.Â Â The Florida panhandle is a good example.Â The legacy democrats down here are more conservative than their party leadership and vote with less emphasis on the D than on the issues.Â Â It’s not so much that there aren’t democrats down here that the party talks about writing off the south.Â It’s that a lot of democrats down here will vote for a republican or a republican policy.Â They were left behind long before Joe Lieberman.
Just a wild guess, but maybe if they got out in front of this issue by constantly denouncing any and all the terrorists attacks, instead of being mute, things might different. If profiling bothers you, get used to it. Expect it. If the terrorists matched a profile of a fat old white guy, I’d expect to be scrutinized more too. The silence coming from Mosques in our neighborhoods can too easily be misunderstood.
