Every book we read is a story, sometimes fiction about how terribly blacks were treated in this country. I have to remind kids - well this story is fiction...doesn't matter Just the other day a white female teacher was reading a story about a black barber in the 1930's who was trying to open a barber shop. She asked the kids about the challenges he faced...NONE of them fell for it and they are all black or hispanic in NYC where I teach...They said things like he couldn't save money banks wouldnt lend. And here she is trying to get them to say he could't do it because he was black. At 11 / 12 they haven't been totally corrupted but this is how. And that is 1 part I cleaned out the class library - all the anti white books are in the trash

January 3, 2013 was an important and historic day on Capitol Hill for many different reasons. And one of those reasons, of course, was because Ted Cruz was sworn in as Texas’s first Hispanic U.S. Senator. It was a momentous and moving occasion -- an event that Americans of all stars and stripes can celebrate. But basking in the limelight -- I suspect -- is not the reason why Mr. Cruz entered public life.

He went to Washington to roll up his sleeves and get to work. Indeed, that...
