Renata, Rustam, Kola,

Very good points... they make plenty of sense :-).


Thanks for responding to this thread.. It was actually a question asked by a student in my diversity class so decided to answer it....

Truly, a lot of people are closed-minded and refuse to look and appreciate the different human values and way of life..

Like white people are nearly learning to respect black people now -- and they will. Education must not only be Eurocentric centered, but world centered in America because this country is so full of immigrants, it is no joke.

No wonder the minority students are placed as "low" it is because they automatically assume they're stupid off of their own understanding.

They must understand the language of "ebonics" and that a black mother loves her children just as much if not more than a white mother loving her child. The point is, we're different and we all act different. But if the education system icorporate these differences, then we might finally have a fair system.

But guys, thanks for commenting and giving your opinions.. and again, I agree with you all 100%!
