I would point out that a relative of mine is a liberal arts instructor at a trade high school which provides an excellent and free curriculum in basic engineering and hands-on machinist training in a state of the art facility funded by the city.
The population of the school is approximately 85% Hispanic and African-American.
Out of 800 kids, maybe 50 bother to do the full four years of the program - and of those 50 about 30-35 are white and 10-15 are Hispanic.
One of the retired engineers who is a full-time instructor there told this relative of mine that when he tries to get the African-American teens in the school who show an aptitude for the work to pursue it for a full four years, he gets a response of disdain for the physical labor involved in the program. To quote one kid he was trying to encourage: "What am I? A motherf****** slave, now? Nah."
Any job other than NBA player, actor, record producer or unlicensed pharmaceutical distributor is now "slave labor."
But apparently if these kids are moved from Brooklyn to a rural community like Cooperstown they will wake up the next morning and apply for a job working on a dairy farm and then show up every morning at 4 am like clockwork.
What kind of country will our children live in if we just keep doing what we have been doing?
