For the better part of the 20th century, the civil rights movement devoted their lives — and in some cases gave their lives — to the cause of ending segregation, and now it would appear that some in subsequent generations who would claim to be following in their footsteps are hell bent to bring it back:

An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.

“In hindsight, this field trip could have been approached and arranged in a better way,” Madison wrote. “But as I reflect upon the look of excitement, enthusiasm and energy that I saw in these children’s eyes as they stood in the presence of a renowned African American rocket scientist in a very successful position, it gave the kids an opportunity to see this type of achievement is possible for even them.

Yeah, because it’s so easy for non-black kids to become rocket scientists… they don’t need any inspiration.

“Closing the achievement gap” by holding one group of people back so another can catch up? I have a feeling that we’re looking at Obama’s next Secretary of Education.

**********
“Okay kids, lesson time. Today we’re learning about Martin Luther King, Jr’s ‘I have a dream’ speech. Repeat after me…

When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

“Very good. Okay, now, black kids on the bus to go see the rocket scientist, white kids just sit here, watch Hanna Montana and count all your money or whatever it is you people do, because you’re guaranteed to succeed anyway.”

**********

What a great principal.

Oh, and you honky kids better not even think about trying to sneak on the bus, because Principal Madison will turn the fire hose on your little cracka asses before you can say “Ironic.”

    We should all be grateful for MLK’s work on the Apollo program in the 60s.

    Careful,the King estate may send you a bill.For commies,they have done their math well on payments for use of that speech.Those may be the most $profitable$ words ever spoken.
