Book takes compelling look at racial bias

Most days, I would never defend Tom. But I know what he is talking about. STL is an interesting place and I got a taste of what many black people get in a predominantly white area. People were very hostile and rude. It depends on where you are. Couldn't wait to get back to Lawrence!!

Schoolhouse raps: Students respond to math teacher’s hip-hop lessons

Math facts ARE rote, duh! I'm sure the kids cannot learn the concept from the rap alone but it probably helps them remember. Mnemonic strategies (which are meaningless ways to remember things) have been proven to be effective.
"Gord forbid" you have any better ideas other than to be a hater. Might want to spell check when you criticize a teacher.
Kudos to him; it's obviously effective!

Shocking...I totally agree with Brent Garner today. Teen mothers have a long hard road and most times, the children suffer right along with them.

Civic illiteracy is alarming

Cal wants people to pass this test. Would it be ok if we just focused on an actualy literacy rate, employment, and paying taxes? C'mon!

Some advice for the Obamas

demonfury (Anonymous) says: My advice would be to continue investing heavily into behemoth bulletproof glass like the monstrosity of a barrier that was erected on the front and sides of his stage on election night at the Ebenezer baptist Church. What's that going to cost Joe Taxpayer?______________________________________Maybe if you and your friends weren't so demonic and full of fury, it wouldn't be necessary. Won't cost Joe Tax Payer too much unless he owns 7 houses. Throw back another beer, Demon, and relax.
