We’ve Made Circles Before
i get it now.. all superintendents do is float around this country from school system to school system racking up severance packages like it’s nothing. Meanwhile your child sits in a classroom often lacking the “materials” and skilled teachers needed for them to learn.
Don’t get me wrong.. there are great teachers in the classroom and Wonderful administrators who mean well and do the best they can under the circumstances.. but the system is what fails them as teachers, and your children our students. Will it ever change?
Blacks continue to fight for equality in education. Education is based on class and if you’re poor so is your education. Sounds separate and unequal still right? Well in many cities it is. In many cities the schools change by the color and class. Especially in this one. And still teachers manage to do what they can. I really feel so bad for teachers because they are the ones who really need the training, the resources, the computers, the books, but every year the dollar for public education shrinks and shrinks.
I might add that it’s now a federal crime to say “hey the United States of America is wrong for.. a. b. c.” When did it become a crime to challenge the laws made in this country? Why do I need a permit to protest on public property that I pay taxes for? If I have to ask permission then it really isn’t freedom.. right?
Honestly though I’m tired of the protesting. It’s so numbing to those in power. It’s like .. “oh they protesting again”.. Where is the strategy for power?
Are people afraid of strategy because now.. strategy is now considered a “federal offense”. “How dare you think of strategy to change the status quo. You “terrorist”, you traitor” anti-patriot”.. CRAZY right? But these are the laws being passed. And these LAWS are wrong and un-civilized, and totally out of order!
The strategy is to: educate your children to maintain the status quo- so that they keep the “order”, and learn to NOT critically think. To only learn what is taught, and color “within the the lines” So that when they and YOU grow the fuck up yall will FALL IN LINE.
LINE.. prison line.. chain gang line, make a gang line,.. 8:00a.m. traffic line.. starbucks line, Macy’s Line, basketball game lines, “new sneaker lines”.
But never the FrontLINE where you stand up for yourself, your ancestors, your children. ..
Maybe it’s time a CIRCLE is formed.
I still encourage the ones born with voices to continue yelling kicking and screaming.
Maybe a whole new shape needs to be made..
We’ve made CIRCLES before.
This is my rant for this evening..
