Are EXACTLY right on the school choice issue. Their segment on NY schools should be required watching for any person who opposes charter schools.

This is one of the few issues where the President is on the right side of. If he wants to recover and score a bi-partisan victory and so something that could really have a long term positive effect for the nation in general and for the black community in particular this is it.

For more on the subject check here here and here.

Update: A reader reminds me that although the president has said the right thing when he had the chance to support school choice in DC he didn’t bother. I can’t believe I forgot that after all I wrote about it on New Years Day and I was sober.

Nixon/China, Obama/DC Vouchers

The saying is “Only Nixon could go to China”.

Apparently only Obama can kill the DC Vouchers program.

You see if a white president was in charge then democrats might be subject to charges of racism, of oppressing black children to appease the teachers union.

But since our president has the proper skin tone he can allow his fellow Democrats to do this and it has nothing to do with race.

Much like inner city violence, gang violence, drugs, the slaughter and destruction of Black communities, it is ignored because it is being done by people of the same skin color and being run like political fiefdoms. As long as those fiefdoms provide the votes by (maybe buy) hook or crook all is well. And any attempt to make change, then those who are supported financially by said fiefdom scream bloody murder and racism.

And how will our media treat this? The exact opposite of how they treated Macaca.

In my opinion well meaning liberal programs have dome more to effectively re-segregate and re-create the old plantation system or maybe more the old sharecropper system than anything even the most ardent supporter of Jim Crow could have dreamed of. Take a look at colleges and high schools and see how segregated they are.

You know, there’s a part of me that would almost prefer that this was evidence of some sort of long term payback – one that would have been in the works for about 150 years at this point – against African-Americans by the Democratic party. At least that would be a reason to wreck school choice. It would be a conscious decision. Instead, though, I’m faced with the tawdry reality that the Democratic Party simply just doesn’t care.

Maybe there is.
