Skip to comments.Dear Obama, You attended private school. So do your kids. Give other black children that chance

Check out todays ad in The New York Times by the civil rights leader Kevin P. Chavous, chairman of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, condemning President Obama for his failure to support school choice nationwide. (The alliance advocates for vouchers and is supported by several pro school choice foundations, including the Walton Family Foundation.)
Chavous asks President Obama to endorse school vouchers, saying that the president himself attended the most elite school in Hawaii because of scholarships.
At the risk of being pilloried, I have to point out that the evidence is not strong that vouchers have dramatically improved the educational outcomes for black children or any children. I think the models that we ought to be replicating are KIPP and other public programs that emphasize intense remediation, more time on task and a relentless focus on achievement. I think vouchers will help the kids who need it the least middle-class children for whom the $4,000 or $6,000 voucher means their parents can send them to a $10,000 private school.
At the same time, I think parents want more choices, which is why we ought to rethink district lines and school zones. And I think public schools ought to be experimenting with all sorts of models, so a parent can look at the options and see k-8 schools, single-gender, year-round, virtual etc.
Here is the text of the full-page ad:

Zer0 is a millionaire who needs to be taxed more heavily to minimize the deficit.
Barack Hussein Obama hates black people.
Go safe, go armed,
And stay out of Fort Marcy Park.
0bama could give a shyte. This is totally off his radar. He will do anything for his union thug teachers. He could care less about how hypocritical this is
Help you out?? H3ll no, y’all! I got my $10 million through fair and square affirmative action since I was half-black. So I deserve to send my kids to any school I want. You d*mn well know I ain’ sendin them to school with your ghetto gang chirrun. Y’all got to find your own gig to play. Sorry, suckers! Y’awn your own. And hey, ‘member to vote for all democrats this fall and vote for me in ‘12, k? Heh, heh! I know you will!
And all the other people, too. NO ONE is as good as he is and never will be, far as he's concerned. They just exist to help him get what he wants. He doesn't know what he wants, but he's working on it.
Say, bro. Earlier this week? That was a LONG time ago. Things change. Remember the "CHANGE" thing? You voted for it!! Ha, ha!
And don’t forget.....”it be wrong-headed to allow deese black children a choice in schools n all dat cause dey might get edukated, REALLY EDUKATED, n den they would figure out dat the republicans were historically on dare side n dat, now bein smard n all, dat progressive liberal tinken is gonna only keep um down, n stupid and depennent on gubermint. weeed lose der votes cause our lies wood be compromized by der edukation”
Give ALL kids a CHANCE; regardless of skin color.
Our public schools are ruining the future of our country. These dumbed down kids indoctrinated with all kinds of useless crap will someday be running our country. We have to stop the liberal agenda in schools. Even if you don't have kids, you need to care. They will be making decisions for YOU too!
“it be wrong-headed to allow deese black children a choice in schools...”
That’s spelled ‘chilluns”. Where did you to school?
Obummer is NOT black. He is a bonafide HALFRICAN!!
That’s easy - King O’ The World!!
It is racist to point out Obama’s conflicting utterances, grunts, fantasies, outright lies or his made up “facts”.
This holds true even if the observation is made by a real black or another Half-rican.
'Heck', he hates everyone who isn't a stark raving mad Marxist moonbat.
No, he doesn’t like Hillary Clinton, either.
Hey Obama, release your academic records. Are you afraid we’ll find out that you were given a free pass? I suspect you are not too bright.
:^) my bad!
Now that you mention it , exactly what scholarship was it that got Barry Soetoro, the son of an absent Kenyan Marxist and a single white woman from Kansas into all these elite schools. From grade school on it seems like someone was paying his way. Really, how does someone from a supposed humble background get into all these schools and leave no paper trail, no thesis, no published grades, nothing from Harvard law review for Christ sakes!!! How does one go from college slacker living on a couch and snorting coke, to community organizer where the only qualification seems to be getting freeloaders their welfare check, to President of the US and leader of the free world??? It's a mystery that nobody seems remotely curious about.
LOL. ya got me :-)
Zero is such a basket case that we can forget that he and Hillary are ideological twins.
My children aren't black so what aobut them?
Zer0 is a millionaire who needs to be taxed more heavily to minimize the deficit.”
A thread a few days back said that NObama has been investing his millions in offshore places, where he cannot be taxed.
Don’t know exactly how—or if true at all, but I can see him doing that.
