Dr. Hale showed us that in comparing African-American children and European-American children in the field of education, we were comparing apples and rocks.
And in so doing, we kept coming up with meaningless labels like EMH, educable mentally handicapped, TMH, trainable mentally handicapped, ADD, attention deficit disorder.
And we were coming up with more meaningless solutions like reading, writing and Ritalin. Dr. Hale's research led her to stop comparing African-American children with European-American children and she started comparing the pedagogical methodologies of African-American children to African children and European-American children to European children. And bingo, she discovered that the two different worlds have two different ways of learning. European and European-American children have a left brained cognitive object oriented learning style and the entire educational learning system in the United States of America. Back in the early '70s, when Dr. Hale did her research was based on left brained cognitive object oriented learning style. Let me help you with fifty cent words.
Left brain is logical and analytical. Object oriented means the student learns from an object. From the solitude of the cradle with objects being hung over his or her head to help them determine colors and shape to the solitude in a carol in a PhD program stuffed off somewhere in a corner in absolute quietness to absorb from the object. From a block to a book, an object. That is one way of learning, but it is only one way of learning.
African and African-American children have a different way of learning.
They are right brained, subject oriented in their learning style. Right brain that means creative and intuitive. Subject oriented means they learn from a subject, not an object. They learn from a person. Some of you are old enough, I see your hair color, to...

Is it ok yet to discuss the Bell Curve as legitimate?
I wonder how much the Communists (or NWO or Liberals or ACLU or Illuminati or Bilderbergers or international bankers or the Rockefeller Foundation or all of them together) are paying Jeremiah Wrong to stir up racial trouble and I wonder if he gets as much Sharpton?
Obamas mentor and part time crazy uncle - racist Reverend Wright is back. And with a bang no less.
With words from the past - NOT TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT - which include Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”
Old Barry the messiah must be mightily puckered up about now. LOL ...
This is the well Obama has been drinking deeply from for the last 20+ years and it marks him for who he is.
"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.

“Igor, fetch me a good Transylvanian brain! And make sure you don’t bring me one of those illogical, creative African ones!”
As we say in Texas: He crapped in his hat.
By golly, sounds like good old-fashioned, racist Social Darwinism, and you really don't want to go there, Jeremiah. For example:
"Left brain is logical and analytical..."
and so the alleged lack thereof among your race results in the chaos, corruption and underachievement that defines every single African-ruled nation (and US city)?
Another part of his speech:
“Please run and tell my stuck on stupid friends that Arabic is a language, it’s not a religion. Barack Hussein Obama. Barack Hussein Obama. Barack Hussein Obama. They are Arabic-speaking Christians, Arabic-speaking Jews and Arabic speaking atheists. Arabic is a language, it’s not a religion. Stop trying to scare folks by giving them an Arabic name as if it’s some sort of a disease.”
Arabic-speaking atheists? I doubt if Muslims in Islamic countries are out to embrace these “atheists” in loving, tolerant fellowship...
It might be that excellence in Ebonics is inimical to learniCs and the three R’s.
From what I gather, people in public education are taking these ideas seriously, no kidding
When they were desegregated in Philadelphia, several of the white teachers in my school freaked out. Why? Because black kids wouldn't stay in their place. Over there behind the desk, black kids climbed up all on them.
That's how my Hispanic students are too. But it's not genetic, it's cultural.
Here's the thing: ANYBODY can learn from a person. It's the EASY way, to have someone there to answer your questions rather than having to find out the answer yourself. Students capable of searching for the answers in books, or with experiments, are also the students capable of holding a thought till the appropriate moment.
Slack students blurt out a question the minute it occurs to them, won't look at the directions, won't search for the answer, and basically require a personal tutor to get them through even the simplest tasks.
But again I say, this is not a DIFFERENT way of learning. Anyone can learn that way. It's the EASY way.
Having said that, it is like saying that the grass is green and the sky is blue. It is true. It was true. That's a fact, no denying it, so...I'm guessing the sticking point is the apology. For each of us to make an apology for those we never knew, may have been related to by the luck of insemination, had no control over seems a bit of a stretch. I'm sorry my forebears were sinners. I'm sorry my government and those of other co-conspirators (African/Arabian, to boot) were so bereft of moral fiber that they could entertain the possibility, much less the reality of slavery. I can't tell you how much I'm sorry (and a bit embarrassed) for what happened.
Having said that, where do we go from here? I suppose we can keep it up ad infinitum, but the bottom line for Christians is, “You must forgive. For as you have judged, so shall you be judged.” I say I'm sorry. I mean it. My heart is grieved and I have lived my life to make every African American I meet a better person. I have respected, opened my heart and arms to each one I have encountered. For my part, the ball is in their court. I didn't have a dog in this fight. I took it upon myself to offer the best I have in reparation — all that I am and have. How much is enough?
This is a thorny problem that most of us are being faced with, and it appears the only people who haven't made the attempt are those who are most keenly affected by that indifference.
Mr. Wright simply re-states the problems and appears to be profiting from the constant restatement of those problems. He has no solutions. He is caught in the quagmire of collective anguish and appears to have become comfortable there. God willing, Mr. Wright will understand that forgiveness isn't a suggestion — it's a commandment. No option.
“...slavery debaucher...” should have read “slavery debacle” (I really hate spell check in this system). It was, however, a form of debauchery as well.

Thanks for the link.
The good Rev is proof, PROOF I tell you that UFOs ARE REAL...!!!!
They couldn’t stand his BS and so they dumped here on Earth. I wish they (the UFO dudes) would come and take him back to whatever universe he came from......
It’s not learning.
Ah, now I understand why Obama said he thought education needed reworking...the Rev said so!
Okay, asking all over, if anyone has a transcript of wright’s 9-11 speech, “the chickens have come home to roost”..
