More Meeks Madness

Hasn't this guy lost all credibility yet? He screams "racial profiling!" when there isn't any. He threatens to run for governor (as an independent of all things) when he has no realistic shot. Why is he still getting any ink? Now he's turned his sights on the schools and comes up with these brilliant observations:
  • State Senator James Meeks is calling on Mayor Daley to put better teachers in Chicago's poorest schools.
  • Meeks cited a recent report by the non-profit organization called "Education Trust." It found unqualified teachers are more likely to be placed in poor and minority school districts.
  • "There's absolutely no way our poor and minority school districts will ever have an opportunity to pull themselves up with a poor quality of teachers," said Senator Meeks.
Not published was his proposal to give "better" teachers a combat pay bonus of $5,000 to teach in "non-performing" schools. Gee whiz rev, could it maybe be because of archaic union rules that won't let anyone fire incompetent teachers? Or maybe the fact that teachers don't want to work in dangerous environments? Or how about the ... ah, screw it. Welcome to your own personal "Catch-22" situation reverend. Either you piss off the unions who pour countless millions into the Machine's pockets or you piss off your constituents who blindly give you votes you neither earn nor deserve. Good Luck!

Meeks is an unbelievable waste of news media resources and of public interest. And besides, I'm 1st!

i was flipping thru the channels on the television the other day and meeks was talking about this school plan.......he showed a chart of high schools in poor neighborhoods.......ranging from the different schools...only 5 - 10% of the kids were reading at their grade level.......but if you ask them how to roll a blunt, and how many rocks can you get out of a cookie of crack....i'll bet you they have the answer......you can't teach people who dont care......chicago public schools pay about $7,000 per kid for a year.....the black community cries we get no funding....however more money will get you nowhere....look at evanston....they spend $19,000 per student for a year....however the black kids in evanston perform at the same rate as the kids in the poor chicago schools......and evanston spends the most in the state.....if a kid has no desire to learn, accomplish goals, succeed in life....teachers and more money will do no good.....this is something that is a domestic issue....parents need to show a good example for their kids....however we've all been to there households.....and good parents are hard to come by in the ghetto....

Call me/this post what you want. However, black people do not want to succeed. Most all want to lay around and do nothing. The want nice things only to destroy them.

For the blacks that want to succeed, they are tainted by a race that is down right lazy and ignorant. Young black kids have the world at there figer tips. Free school and every imaginable free ride out there yet the do not take advantage of it.

Its starts at home. The black kids mimic their parent (most barely have 0ne) and the ways of the streets they destroy each day. You want to be somebody and go somewhere black people? Then get a clue on how to live your life. Im sorry if I offended the black person who just wants to live life but most off of your race is nothing but a disgrace.

Then you have the mayor daley wanna be's meeks, jackson,jerks, and the rest of the holy mongrils. Each out bullshits the next.

Hey reverend meeks. why not try buying hammers, nails and shovels, some rakes, grass seed, paint and rebuild what you and your so called peoples have so effortlessly destroyed. I bet Home Depot, Menards, and lowes would even donate some of the afformetioned. I f you had a dog of the canine persuation that was def, blind, and crippled, could you teach it to fetch a stick or roll over? I think not. So what will better teachers do in a community that does not want to learn???

Big deal I was to much in a hurry to post how I feel about you and your people.

The truth is the truth, no matter how you spell it. And when someone as myself hits a nerve regarding the truth all you educated but plugs can do is...you spelled this wrong. Can any of the ghetto rats even spell the state name correctly? I highly doubt it. I hope the same people make you a victim so you can truley learn the meaning. Pompus ass. Is that you mizz mitchell?

Now answer me this, why do black people live the way they do? Why is every nieghborhood that is in ruins BLACK? I bet you ignore me!

Good money follwing bad money down the drain.

I feel bad for the 2% of ghetto CPS kids that WANT to learn.

Perhaps there should be a 2 tier system. One where mama (or granmama, aunti) can just drop off Young Joe, and another for real people.

What did Chris Rock say? Books are like Kriptonite to them.

Speaking of Evanston, NPR (ya I listen to NPR!) had a bit on the under achieving black kids in their skool system. I was unaware of the dollar amount that they spend on per kid. That's alot of tax dollars.

The point is that Evanston already lowered their standards to boost the black kids numbers. But to no avail. So the town had a meeting to discuss passing law to make the ciricilum (sp?) more "Afro-centric". This direction would lower the standards even more. Basically you would just teach to the students whatever THEY want to learn, not what they SHOULD have to learn. Furthermore, this direction would push towards segregated classrooms, exactly what Brown v. Board of Ed fought against.

NPR interviewed the attendants afterwards, and it was hilarious! Most blacks hooted and hollared about We needs We need that. And the few Whites that showed were so scared to speak up.

Bravo Sir. As I have worked P/T as Security at a west side grammar school. I will say some of the students I never had a problem with. They were genuinely sweet kids. But some of these kids would cuss teachers out, fight for no reason, call each other NIGGER and NIGGA and MUTHAFUCKAZ as you or I would say Buddy or Friend. Parents would come in RANTING and RAVING about how my kid is failing this and that, when all their kid does is come to school at 1030 every day and hang out in the halls... As if expecting to get an education though osmosis. I'm sorry to say, but ANIMALS are bred, generation to generation.

I'll tell ya, that Meeks is one racist, dogass, son of a bitch! He is uneducated almost to the point of total stupidity. Everything is racial profiling to these haters. Hate begets hate you hater!! When you stop a cat like Meeks, your best recourse is hammer the shit out of him, and talk to him like he's the President of the United States. Here's your bananas King Louie! See you in court,Mother Fucker!

govt. diverts so much of our tax dollars into THOSE communities and allways with negitive results and a cry for MORE.
how many years and countless dollars have elapsed and the PROBLEM persists.
you see in this world PROBLEMS require FUNDING that then has to be MANAGED and ADMINISTERED.
if not careful the PROBLEM eventually takes a back seat to the APPERATUS designed to solve it.
