NOT Shocked At ACORN

Where I went to college ACORN and other similar organizations were prevelent. Honestly I didn't understand who they were at the time. But I'm not shocked at the human trafficing - prostition video done by the fantastic undercover aspiring journalist that Glenn Beck has been talking about all day.

One of the classes I took for credit was a mentoring program. I was sent to a school up in East Harlem. What was supposed to happen was that we helped the kids do their homework and kept them from being on the streets.

What actually happened was, many days, the kids would play their music and I'd be orced to watch them dance suggestively. One day I had enough. There was a girl who "danced" that really was just similating sex, humping the floor and I put a stop to it.

You'd think I would have been praised. OH NO. I got called into my BLACK teacher/supervisor once back on campus and told that I didn't understand the culture. Oh yes folks, that is exactly what happened.

Needless to say after I received a reduced grade I had to fight by going to the head of the department and get my A. Which I did. THIS is what we have let happen over the last 20 some odd years.

You must have missed the Ebonics debate chapter in American history. That's where teachers were saying we need to understand that blacks speak different that others and should basically have their own language taught in school because of the difference in culture. Nothing surprises me at this point.

I give you an A for doing the right thing.
This tape showing how ACORN operates is great, but I have to wonder if it will raise any concern.
It seems to me that concern from regular folks does not matter to D.C. anymore.
Any chance you are heading to the tea party on Saturday ??
