As the story of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson's shooting of Michael Brown begins to look less clear-cut than we were led to believe by Brown's friend, Dorian Johnson, the "voices of oppression" on MSNBC now say the real issue is that there aren't enough blacks on the Ferguson police force.

Wayne Allyn Root Wayne Allyn Root: A Modern Day, High-Tech Lynching of a Police Officer

Damn the facts. President Obama and Attorney General Holder are railroading an innocent police officer to fit their narrative of racism in America.

With free education offered in every town in the United States, a plethora of teachers who seem to be more than willing to take a role of authority in place of parents, and the convenience of sending our children to someone else to educate them, many parents have relinquished their role as the primary director of their childrens education. Our kids spend more awake time in schoolrooms during their formative years than just about any other place. But it seems that most parents dont have a clue what their children are being taught.
