Outside of that very brief period in Indonesia, I don't believe Obama's mother was very involved during his formative years, and I thought it was his Grandparents that did the bulk of raising him. There are Black women who've raised engineers, neuro surgeons, heart surgeons, good fathers and community leaders etc,... men who obtained these positions without being divisive, deceptive and slandering their way into those positions...
Though the writer makes some excellent points about the dumbing down of students in black schools (something that is very encouraged by a lot of people professing to be "pro-black" etc. If you're for higher standards, then you're labeled by these self professing "pro-black" activist, as being against blacks), he/she doesn't take into consideration cognitive developement of young males. Some are not ready in the 4th grade to tackle calculus. You do want to have standards, but pressuring young students with those types of expectations across the board, can be just as harmful or more so.
I apologize,.... the author is a "he". I went back and read the article from the beginning this time.
Wait a minute... I was raised by w "white" mother, wtf does that have to do with ANYTHING?Pathetic, I'm SO tired of "black" women being called into question because of preconceived notions. If you are lost you are lost. Addiction, depression, and (at times) overwhelming injustice is what distracts most minorities. We need to help them see the way out of their desperation.
I think the founder and chief instructor at the Renaissance Institute was really focusing on parental responsibility and chose, in my opinion, a horrible title to an article raising good points. So I agree with you, "what does this have to do with a "white woman",... my answer would be "nothing".But on the other hand there are no "overwhelming injustices" distracting minorities. If a person refuses to live a responsible life, there is no program on this earth that can help that individual.
