Skip to comments.Lewis Points Finger At ‘Rich White People’ For School Problems
Posted on 06/19/2013 10:18:22 AM PDT by Nachum
A day before the first set of school closings was set to begin, Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis had some harsh words about how the Chicago Public Schools are funded and managed, blaming much of the districts problems on racism. WBBM Newsradios Nancy Harty reports, at a luncheon on education reform, Lewis told members of the City Club that Chicago is the most segregated city in America.

Maybe it would help Ms Lewis case if she'd miss a meal every now and then.
Actually MLK said that of liberal Chicago about 1963. It’s not new.
She can take her “race card” and shove it up her fat a$$.
Not possible. Democrats have ruled that city since time immemorial.
I’m really curious to know if she’s related to Bertha Lewis of ACORN fame.
Yeah, cause dey be no rich black folk in chitown?
Perhaps the turkey vultures on the planet Xenon are to blame...
Since Lewis isn’t using her brain, perhaps she could rent it out to someone who might actually use it.
After teaching in Jackson, MS (in an exclusively black school), the white teachers who had been there for 30 years were chased off in order to put novices from Jackson State U in because the superintendent’s brother was dean of the JSU Education (teacher training) Department. Then they wondered why student achievement plummeted.
But when it came to who was really responsible - white people.
I don’t even want to know what her rationale is on that.
I have heard enough of their idiocy.
When will this Liberal wet dream end?
Maybe her constituents need to get off their lazy fat asses and go to work to ease the tax burden on those that support their sorry asses. Screw the race card, I ‘m calling it like I see it.
It’s open season on whites.
White people are evil, and rich white people are the source of all ills.
A good number of whites are so self loathing, that it’s become socially acceptable to attack whites for being white.
“Chicago is the most segregated city in America.”
A friend’s brother got a job in Chicago. He arrived on Saturday. While in Chicago traffic a car full of blacks pulled up beside him. They all pointed guns at him. He turned around and drove home. He called in Monday to say he quit. So, yes, I can see why it’s segregated.
Illinois public unions are 100 billion in unfunded liabilities. The rich white people responsible for that are all liberal democrats.
Total: $5.11 billion (FY2012)
Operating expense per pupil:
“Rich White People” is code words for suburbs.
Blaming Whitey has always worked so as to avoid taking responsibility for self-inflicted pathologies.
Not possible. Democrats have ruled that city since time immemorial.
Broken dependent ghetto dwellers are the most reliable voters for democrats. They ain't never going to fix a problem that works that well for them...
In a healthier social climate Ms. Lewis & the "Blame Game" would be only a sorry joke.
Just this weekend I heard my MIL say...”the problem with this country is all the rich people”. I am still in shock by that comment. I shouldn’t be, she is a huge lefty from Chicago.
IOW, they are running out of other peoples’ money.......fast................
The reason it’s so segregated is because the majority of the black people there aren’t exactly the best about taking care of their property. People who take good care of their homes dont want to live in a trashy part of town. A lot of them don’t have their priorities in whack and old rather party than do what they’re supposed to and it shows. Why should “rich white people” have to pay more so they can have better schools anyway. They’re not rich Jaba the Black Hut, they just have their priorities straight.
That a$$ is big enough to fit ALLLLLLL the race cards.
Please reassure us that this really is not Ms. Lewis?

And if a President of a Chicago organization blamed “poor black people” for the crime problem there, it would be a national news uproar for days. Plus demands for their resignation, forced apologies, forced “sensitivity training”, forced “charity donations”, etc. While this gets the usual crickets, except for here and on social media.
> That a$$ is big enough to fit ALLLLLLL the race cards.
Almost spit up my coffee on that one...LOL
Too many people (Democrats) making too much money pimping this racial hatred now to really make an impact against it.
They have to keep going, keep ratcheting up the hate to keep the revenue flowing, and their sheep interested.
We lost control of the language 30 years ago, and now we pay the price for that.
I agree with her except the problem is they keep donating to NObama and other dims instead of rising up to protest high taxes and wasteful spending. She is half-right.
“Blaming Whitey has always worked so as to avoid taking responsibility for self-inflicted pathologies.”
You cannot address the real problems in today’s black inner-city because you would be called a “Racist!!!!” by the people making tons of money pimping racism and poverty for profit.
They don't feed him well in them there rich, white folk supported schools.
She has more chins than a Chinese phone book.
Maybe if Lewis eats a less, there will be enough money for the indoctrination system.
It’s NEVER their fault.
No wonder many are permanently settled at the bottom of the socio-economic barrel.
I would blame first the parents who don't invest enough of their time in their children and their education, secondly, the teachers, many of whom are among the most incompetent products turned out by universities today, and finally the education system itself with its perverse rules, incentives, agendas and curricula.
Good Lord! How much does this thing weigh?
Can’t think of a better EXCUSE for PERSONAL INEPTITUDE
If only the rich white racists wouldn’t move away,
and stayed and let their families be victimized by violent minorities,
and let the corrupt gov’t officials fleece them in property taxes and income taxes,
then all the minority kids would do better in school.
As I said: Parents, Teachers, and Government. They make or break the system. If one is good, it can often drag the other two along. If all three stink on ice, the whole thing is doomed.
Of course, the government can often help most by butting out...
Step 1. Great public schools with rich white people in charge.
Step 2. Rich white people told, “we don’t desire your opinions on how to run a school”. Leftists take over.
Step 3. School goes to hell and rich white people opt out. Sending their kids to private school or homeschooling.
Step 4. Leftists insist that schools lack proper funds for succes and start a death spiral of increasing costs and decreasing results.
Step 5. Leftists blame failures on rich white people for abandoning the system, and no longer caring.
What do you feed something like that?
Why do idiots like this always assume "Latinos" want to be lumped in with her ilk?
I have to ask . . . does she have her own zip code?
anything and everyting it wants . . .
