MSNBC just went to Ryan's speech - "We need to educate Blacks and Hispanics"

Paraphrasing, he was saying that in the US African Americans and Hispanics are at the bottom when it comes to education success and we have to do what we can to bring them up and improve their chances.

This made me chuckle just based on what the R's have done for education in the past. Then I LOL'd when he came to the end of that part and was greeted with silence for a minute and a smattering of applause. There's either no one at that rally or there are only white people who don't care about educating Blacks and Latinos.

1. and when people don't make it the "communities" should care for them.

HELLOOOOOOO . . . we have a social safety net because communities NEVER COULD shoulder the burden alone to begin with.

2. WOW. The real fact is that we have to eliminate poverty. The correlation is economic, not racial.

What a freaking bigot!

7. When The Odds Are Always In Favor Of Educating The Wealthy

Let's start with Sesame Street, the pre school for the under funded tykes. They push them around from school to school all in the name of profit. The kids keep getting farther behind,traveling further each day. They try to slow down all those "pesky" scholorships, insisting that you should not go to college until you can afford it. So many don't have the time to study comfortably as they have to help out at home from babysitting siblings to help put food on the table. Many stuck in the fields have trouble working and going to school--even grade school or high school-since it is vital for the entire family to pull together at crop time.
Issues like decent computers,internet service etc are not always easy when you have to take a bus to the library(at the same time like would like to close many of them as well). Not all of them have a huge room with table etc to study. It's hard to study if you live in a shelter or even a small apt when your desk is also the dining table,play area for the younger kids.
But they talk a good game. Sadly too many will believe this tripe.

21. I had a sense that he was filming their next commercial.

It clearly wasn't being said for the benefit of those in the audience, you could almost hear them wondering if they were in the right place or not!!

I agree with all of your points, we really haven't moved far from the days when the black schools were getting the hand-me-down books and supplies from the white schools and they were told to be happy they had at least that much.

9. Everyone needs to be educated but when speaking to Republicans it has to be in understandable terms

I doubt that has ever been considered by most of his audience. Ryan probably feels good in that he is speaking those lines. Now he needs to think about other demographics he needs to appeal to who know that Republicans really do not care who is educated. In most cases Republicans fear an educated population and potential electorate, so do not educate too much.

12. More Dog & Pony Show...

...intended for the corporate media types to say how "moderate" Willard and Eddie Munster have become. There's no substance and even less real intent. This is all doing the final sales job along with a big money advertising blitz. It's selling a candidate on manufactured images and it may just work. That's the ugly and sad state of affairs in this crumbling country...

13. I actually think

 

this is a sign of desperation. Where was this at earlier in the campaign? So now he is concerned about Black people in Ohio? It is a sign they are losing in Ohio and trying to cut into Obama's support. They tried with women and now they are pandering to Blacks. Lets see if Blacks go for it. I can read Ryan like a book by now.

16. They are pulling out the last cheat card up their sleeve

meaning they are going down and going down fast.

When they have completely stripped down everything in the kitchen to throw, they are now digging up the linolium floor tiles and stripping the wallpaper, balling them up, and hurling.

25. I'm a good example of how you educate minority children

You start out providing decent labor wages and health benefits so people like my parents who worked in an auto factory and cleaned homes, could afford to own a home, put food on the table, and send six children to college with the help of affordable tuition and grants (I'm talking the 60's-early 80's).

Now, their college educated children struggle to send their children to college, provide medical care and can barely keep up with mortgage and health payments.

Now you have to be rich to provide those some comforts my parents provided. Or Mitt Romney.

... that their concept of economics and well everything, is shit and they need to learn some reality.

But it is not going to happen. They don't want to learn. In fact they know their ideas are shit, their reasoning is just a cover for their real agenda, fuck the poor, and yes let's fuck the middle class too. Hail to the rich!
