Smart black students being accused of "acting too white" is an issue Triangle educators are debating at a youth and race conference this week.
Students say the stigma is keeping some of their peers from doing well in school.
Tenth grader Anais Guzman is on the honor roll. She says some of her peers see the achievement as acting too "white".
"They can get high grades but they don't want to because they'll be considered as acting white, so they put white people down,” Guzman said.
So let me get this straight - in order to be "black", you have to be a dumbshit. If you're smart or use your god-given brain, then you're not really "black".
"Some people might say some people are acting white, or acting black or different things like that so I see it often,” said tenth garder Vance Cherebin.
College freshman Erin Burns added, “Black students that are doing well in the classroom or hang out with white friends or have good grammar, talk properly or don't use slang, they get accused of being white a lot."
Mike has his comments on it, including this bit:
Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.
Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.
But black Democrats say there is nothing wrong with “pointing out the obvious.”
“There is a difference between pointing out the obvious and calling someone names,” said a campaign spokesman for Kweisi Mfume, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate and former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
State Sen. Lisa A. Gladden, a black Baltimore Democrat, said she does not expect her party to pull any punches, including racial jabs at Mr. Steele, in the race to replace retiring Democratic U.S. Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes.
“Party trumps race, especially on the national level,” she said. “If you are bold enough to run, you have to take whatever the voters are going to give you. It’s democracy, perhaps at its worse, but it is democracy.
So, if you're smart, you're not really "black". And if you're a conservative, you're not really "black".
Which means by their own standards, Democrats are dumbshits.
All joking aside, there have to be some White Power fuckheads just laughing their ass off. In all their twisted dreams of re-segregating this country, they couldn't do half as good a job as the Democrats themselves have done.
It's sickening, quite honestly. There truly IS a conspiracy to keep people poor and stupid..... and it's being run by the Democrats. Right now I don't have the words to explain just how foul and disgusting these attacks by blacks and Democrats are.
I really don't have the words.
