A recent rant I heard related to this video:
“This woman is dumber than dirt if she thinks that white people don’t care about educating black and brown children. If those black and brown children get a good education, then they can get jobs. People with jobs pay taxes. The current system, which she leads, and is a complete failure, does a terrible job of educating many of these kids and then they can’t get jobs that pay a decent wage, and they end up costing these hated white people money, and their taxes have to go up to keep these people on the dole. We want all children educated, no matter what color, so they can pay taxes, so we don’t have to pay as much. What a dipsh*t.”
To that I would add two thoughts: Black and brown parents who work for a living and don’t want to flush tax dollars down the toilet also want the kids of Chicago educated. And Ms. Lewis is using hate speech designed to tear the country apart more than it already is. Populism sucks.
But again, I think it’s basically over and there’s little that can be done to save the Titanic.
