You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

Please cite the "substantial evidence" you are refering to. I am sure this will come as a shock to Almirante Cristobal Colon his Spanish descendant. I suppose next you will be telling us that the pyramids were built by spacemen.

As soon as Al Sharpton or the so called Rev. Jesse (I speak for all black people) Jackson get involved, you automatically know it's racist and against the better judgment of most black people.

Jackson can have an affair and thus father a child of one of his subordinates, pay her off and get off scott free but he will belittle any white person for doing the same. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Excuse the pun on words. This jackass can go to any company and threaten to sue or boycott their companies if they don't pay "extortion" money and get away with it. He can go to other countries and speak for "all" Americans and the State Department does nothing about it. As far as I'm concerned, I'm American and this jerkoff doesn't speak for me. All the Black people I know, detest Jackson, but they know no way to fight him without being harassed. What are they to do????

I am a little off topic here but it all sort of ties into each other.

Don't forget, if it's bad, it's Bushs' fault or the white people's fault. If it's good, it's Bushs' fault but they will never admit it. *sarcasm*

"black hate groups take it as gospel since it fits into their white man/ jew bad scenarios"


Ironically, the real White Nationalists don't consider Jews to be white, while the Black Nationalists hate Jews because they consider them to be white.

Ping!

Quote from the article:

Autum is homeschooled with a curriculum by the Black Homeschoolers Association, said her father, Batin Ashante, of Mount Vernon.

As 600,000 or so African immigrants in NYC all say, "Good luck with that..."

Oops... I meant to ping the whole group the first time.

I was reading the article thinking, "Another reason to homeschool," and then I read she was homeschooled. :-0 Her parents should be free to teach her as they see fit, even though I disagree with them. But... why is THIS homeschooler given so much time and attention in the public school system when homeschooled kids usually aren't even allowed to participate at all in public school activities? (Rhetorical question).

When white students at the Peekskill High School assembly stood with black students, Autum told them to sit down

My kids are quote-unquote "biracial". I would hope, in that situation, they would neither stand nor sit but simply walk out or turn their backs.

...or they could stand then sit, moving up and down like a road tour of Guys and Dolls performing Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat...that would freak the little poet out.

(sorry, couldn't resist)

This whole thing is nothing but a piece of shameless promotion on the part of the parent(s). These kids crop up every now and again, then quickly fade.

The thing that sets this apart is the apparent radicalism and Africa thing. Most of the African immigrants I know would either be scratching their hands over this or laughing out loud.

Just remember boys & girls - only straight, white, Christian men are racist. Everybody else is diverse.

I don't know why, but reading your comment reminded me of being in college and having a black boy ask me why I didn't date people of color. I said I just hadn't met any that I felt chemistry with. He said I was limiting myself. Then, said he needed to leave because if his girlfriend saw him talking to a white girl she would be mad. Double standard.

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."

"Think about it: We went into slavery pagans; we came out Christians. We went into slavery pieces of property; we came out American citizens. We went into slavery with chains clanking about our wrists; we came out with the American ballot in our hands... "Notwithstanding the cruelty and moral wrong of slavery, we are in a stronger and more hopeful condition, materially, intellectually, morally, and religiously, than is true of an equal number of black people in any other portion of the globe."

In this article or another one, it was stated that her dad "worked" on it with her--how much it was him and not her, I don't know.

I was not raised as a color but as a person to simply respect others and to give people the same respect I expect from them. The first book I was able to read at the age of 5 was the Bible and if I was unsure of what something meant I was able to get out the dictionary and figure it out. I was always asking why and the only way I was sure to find out was to look, listen and learn for myself. I was not taught to hate or form an opinion about a specific race based on some activities or actions. Not until I move to TN was I ever exposed to an environment of majority "Black" or "White". In FL, MD, DC, VA, NY, NJ, I was always used to people of many different races and exposed to various cultures. If you are clearly not so called pure white in TN you will experience a form of hatred even so from those who have mixed grandchildren. They are quite surprised that your houses look and are kept better than theirs, they are quick to assume that you are doing something wrong if you have a better job than them, and drive better cars then them. Even with a degree and more education they will lie to your face and state that the person they chose has more experience than you even though you know for a fact it is their relative they are looking out for, who came from a factory job with no schooling beyond high school. They continue to make up reasons of why "Her" raise was 6% and yours was only 3% even though you used no sick days and came in early for your shift for the last 6 years of your work history with that company and put in OT to make sure you met the deadlines without getting recocnized for a job well done. They have question of why you may like county music or even have horses and play golf better than them. Some people were just raised to succeed, always stay ready for change, embrace technology work hard and always do your best and great things will come to you. And that is what keeps them happy they don't notice the so called "Man" because they have not let anything stand in their way!! Just because one child is observant of what is going around her and uses poetry to get across what she can see out of her eyes in her environment she is not wrong, this is what she can see around her.

Have a blessed day!!

Do you know the song and where it is from.

That was a song I posted not a poem.

It was an anthem for change, part of a Musical by Rogers and Hammerstein, the name of the song "You have to be carefully taught" the name of the musical "South Pacific".

It taught me tolerance, sadly this young child isn't being taught tolerance for others.

I have to admit for a seven year old girl that is a really well written poem. I am not saying I agree with it, but taken as a piece of work I would of though more of a teenager.

Either it was written by an adult or there is a Strong budding intelligence in there.

She did not write this poem. It was written for her by an adult.
