Wright or wrong--it wasn't a dream....
Ok, yes I saw the Wright speech on CNN tonight. I know I saw it because I just saw another thread on corrente where Wright talked about the right-brained creative black child vs the wrong brained who-gives-a-damn white child. I thought that I had fallen asleep on the couch and dreamed that. Now I have to reconcile reality with um reality. Yes, Virginia this is 2008 not 1846.
Letting that sink in.
Wright went on to say in a tone that was as if all whites during desegregation ran and met in a big assembly room and said "we know what to do, they are right-brained creative AFRICAN children, we will desegregate thus keeping them down forever and ever!"
He made an inference by the tone of his voice that whites had desegregated and now blacks needed to reclaim and resegregate, and NOW instead of learning the white way with object oriented learning that left brained white kids use, NOW black America will rise and toss the shackles of the white conspiracy and ummmm teach their kids the subjective way of ummmm subject learning for wright-brained kids.
Wow, what does that remind me of......mmmmmm uuuuuhhhhhmmmm oh oh yeah it is just like what was said that made AA justifiably slaves.
Who exactly is going to teach these kids this subject oriented learning and um....how will it be paid for, and does this mean all AA's need to go back to school to be reeducated including Obama?
God, it was like accidentally walking into a KKK meeting and looking around and wondering WTF am I in the US of A?
What annoys me even further is that this was a tax-free NAACP meeting, Wright did not talk about American Indian kids, he did not talk about how jewish children learn, he did not address how indian children learn....
And the two commentators after CNN if the woman smiled and was any more ingratiating...I was waiting for the health club membership plug to come out. Where do the media find these happy who ha's? the optimists clubs? Not ONE substantive thing was said by the two cheerleader commentators, although if the woman could have shut up for 10 secs maybe we could have heard if the man who was next to her had anything at all to say that was substantive. Since he didn't, I will have to imagine that they both thought it was a great idea to segregate right-brained AA's into their own schools so that Wright and his ilk can properly train them.
Someone pass me the cyanide!
