So I know Im probably super late seeing this but hey I can be busy sometimes. So I'm up watching glee on netflix the first season when Quin got pregnant and the story surrounding her pregnancy was so crazy first off the guy who she told she was pregnant by didnt even have sex with her he just ejaculated in a hot tub next to her and this showed how uneducated our youth can be about sex second he ask her if she was going to have it and she said yes without a doubt even though she new that her mom would be furious with her being in that predicament and that she had a whole future ahead of her that having a baby would throw a monkey wrench in then the guy went and told the teacher and he asked if he needed money for her to go to planned parenthood which was quite amusing because him being a male that was his first thought suprisingly so I guess Mr. Shuester is pro-choice. It just really tickled me how they skipped around the issue of abortion and thru the episode no one she told sat down and told her that she needed to think about all her options and decide what would be best for her.They either just criticized her and made her feel shameful for instance like kicking her off cheerleading team or posting that shes pregnant in the newspaper noone showed the least bit of empathy towards her or try to figure out how she got in that situation and see how she can avoid it again. It's funny how fiction is so close to the realities of society.

Every time I get to do outreach it is so refreshing because you get to educate and interact with people and hear their thoughts.It was snowing and cold but the work has to get done people need this information. I am so happy when I get positive feed back or even just see someone reading the piece of information I gave them.This lets me know that what I am doing can never be in vain. So I can't wait till the next one!

Welcome Home Troops!

Just wanted to say welcome home to the troops. It has been too long. And let us not forget the lives that were lost. Fighting for this country and our beliefs should not end in Iraq. We as a people must continue to fight against all injustices, especially the ones that affect us on a daily basis. Let's not pretend that the war is over. The war against the poor and marginalized continues.

I Was A Poor Black Kid

I was a poor Black kid and oh how I wish I could talk face to face with Gene Marks. I do believe that even under the most restricting circumstances that there is still hope for the marginalized and oppressed people can still become successful. However, I DO NOT believe that it as simple as Gene Marks writes. Not once does he address why poor Black kids still have to fight three times as hard to obtain an education or job that privileged Whites were simply handed. Don't attempt to write an article on how poor Blacks can succeed without actually being a poor Black person who is dealing with struggles that some can't even begin to understand. Don't attempt to walk in my shoes without never even trying them on. If everyone would "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" their wouldn't be any White privilege! #Outragedandreadytoeducatetheignorant

If This White Man was a poor Black Kid

This is a prime example of how people try to put a blanket on the all the underlying issues.As always some things are easier said than done. If you feel so different, then let's see if you put those kids up north in the schools out south and put the kids out south in the schools up north and see what the outcome is. This is frustrating that people think like this instead of how to make education equal no matter what the economic status.
