If our educational system weren't taken over by these liberals, socialist, and communist, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Let's teach every body, whites, blacks, hispanics etc.etc.etc. the real history of this country. If the blacks in this country were taught that it was the DEMOCRATS that created all of these things that they are fighting for, there wouldn't be any blacks that would vote democrat.

Always thought a great idea would be to overhaul our current ed system to teach our children what so obviously should be taught - American history! How the libs ever cornered the market in teaching has been most unfortunate in having generations of students being drilled on multi-culturalism and now bogus green concerns. A massive dose of American pride is just an overhaul away, okay President Romney? Epluribus Unum!

I do agree that the American public education system is sorely lacking in adequate U.S. history lessons (unless a student takes it upon them self to enroll in advanced-placement courses during high school, which offer so immensely much more insight than the scratching-of-the-surface lesson plans practiced in standard coursework). In attacking, "multi-culturalism and now bogus green concerns," however, I truly believe that you set a dangerous, short-sighted precedent in failing to acknowledge the critical importance of educational opportunities in the fields of alternative energies and intercultural communication.

This is certainly not an attempt to attack you, but rather an appeal to consider the inherent advantages, no, necessities of offering such courses to students. I am of the opinion that alternative energy curriculum should be available in an elective format, whereas students will have the opportunity to explore this field if they so desire. The primary benefits of allowing students such an avenue, in my opinion, include fostering a generation of American young-adults who have an interest and aptitude in the field of alternative energy--leading to an expansion of this sector,

resulting in more American jobs--and also the potential for innovative research and groundbreaking discoveries that carries with it the capability of decreasing our reliance on foreign fossil fuels (the benefits of which are far too immense to list here). That said, I find intercultural communication to be, especially in the diverse, rapidly evolving society we exist in, absolutely fundamental. America is the quintessential melting pot. It is the sheer multiplicity of people, ideas, values, industries, religions, and cultures saturating our society that all contribute to form a sort of patch-work quilt that is OUR America.

. So one can see why, with a nearly limitless volume and assortment of cultures we are exposed to and interact with on a daily basis, it is crucial for our adolescents and young adults to be equipped with the necessary proficiencies to successfully communicate across cultural lines and, as are so often encountered, cultural divides. I just don’t see how one can expect to harness their true potential when they are incapable, or unwilling to interact outside of their cultural norms. In this modern society, that is essentially existing with one’s head buried in the sand. And that just doesn’t sound like all that fun of a way to live. Thank you for the time, and I’m sorry for the long-winded diatribe.

True, very true. Sharpton and Jesse are anti-black. This article by Ann should be required reading for the Sharpton mobs. Sharpton would be alone if blacks got smart or educated to the history of the Democrate Party.
Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of "stand your ground" laws and to demand tighter gun control. (MSNBC'S Karen Finney blamed "the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point.")

This would be like demanding more funding for the General Services Administration after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas.

We don't know the facts yet, but let's assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood,...
