I wonder why this is even a story, but then I remember that is the published in "The Barnacle."
"African American Studies" Are there any "Irish American Studies"? How about some "Italian American Studies" ????Courses like this tend to exacerbate racial problems, not help. They tend to promote and perpetuate racial strife.
We are going to see more stories like this now that Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, The Boy Wonder, Oprah's Love Child, and BO) is the Current Temporary Resident of the White House.
He is going to set racial practices back 200 years.
See that's whats wrong with these courses. There culmination of African History ends with a wanna be gang banger rapper. Why aren't the closing with Black men in congress or leaders within our country. They would rather idolize rappers who talk about guns and slanging rock, then the ones who worked their butts off and are trying to make a difference in our country. It all goes back to what they really want to see as history. You don't see textbooks talking about Garth Brooks or say Donald Trump. Yet they have Mos Def and probably some black athletes in there who are less then stellar role models in the first place." - Jay_Hill (a poster on the Houston Chronicle forums)
