Re: “Mr. Charles on Mr. Sterling

I wasn't surprised either about this and the only reason that he got the first award was because of money. We as human beings seem to have the green eyed devil in front of us when it comes to choosing the high or low road. Greed blinds us from seeing the bigger picture and in this case it played a big role and now NAACP is kicking themselves for allowing a person like him to tarnish their name even more. Need to get it together

Re: “Book-banning: A sad chapter in history

First of all why is a public school banning a book based on religious values. Last time I checked we still have separation of church and state in NC of all places as well. The fact that we are educating our kids about this keeps them from being so close minded and broadening their knowledge on everything. This is just like bringing sexual education into the school system, the parent would receive a note saying your child will be learning such and such in sexually education if you feel the need not to let your child participate in this class you will need to sign this and they will be directed to some other educated activity of schools choice. To close a child off entirely from something that they will eventually come across later in life anyway is just a stupid move. We are suppose to be educating our children, opening their minds to all kinds of possibilities and history and know that when they are old enough to make decisions and hopefully good decisions for themselves and on their own. We can never grow and learn from our mistakes if we continue to instill the same in our kids and future generations.

Re: “NYC 'Ghetto' tours dehumanize poor

Seriously a ghetto tour! Thats just degrading and outright wrong, theres nothing exciting about living in the ghetto or trying to make it out. If they really wanted an experience in the ghetto they should have dropped them off in the worst part and left. It more and likely would have ended that whole situation of ever having a tourist attraction in the ghetto. They could have showed historic buildings and landmarks in that area but to call it a ghetto tour and put the people that lived there on display like some jungle safari excursion is just flat out wrong and ignorant.

Re: “Ain't nobody got time for another YouTube stereotype

Yes, I agree the media does have its way of taking the black minorities and turning it into some 15min of fame. But then again I have to look at honey boo boo, I'm so confused lol.
