How Humiliating It Must Be Sometimes ...

... to be a self-respecting black man or woman in this country.  To have to put up with the shame of being considered - by government - to be less intelligent than everyone else.

From the Sunshine State:

"The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race.

"On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent."

The purpose is to give African-American children the chance to achieve ... something.

In effect?

They're all considered less smart.

In truth?

The only thing achieved is ignominy.

For the love of God.
