Boston Latin School started the public school system's legacy of failing black students by not allowing them to attend.
Of course, in 1635, much ignored by the racists in the Black History Movement, there were so few black folks here that it really did not matter. By all records I can find, in Boston in 1635, there was only one black dude in the whole city. He was named Jesse and he was a multi-millionaire because he was a pimp and drove a long white El Dorado with chandeliers on the front fenders.
Please be aware that the very first BLACK slave imported to the New World arrived in 1612, so only 23 years, you know? And since you probably went to public school, the Mayflower did not arrive here until 1620. Hell, Jamestown was just established in 1607.
Also, this era was almost perfectly timed to coincide with the decline of the Moors. Moors were majority black and Muslim, too. They also controlled what constitutes the majority of the Iberian Peninsula at the time. For some reason, Iberian rings a bell. OH YEAH!!! That is where the Hispanics originate!!! So, the blacks were enslaving the Mexicans and Puerto Ricans even before they were Mexicans and Puerto Ricans!!! How RAAAAACIST!!!
Put this in perspective please? Here are the travels and years of Whitey McWhiterson. Columbus-1492, Cabot-1498 (first to actually hit what was to become the US), Juan Ponce de León-1513...you get the picture.
Plus, it took FOREVER to cross the Atlantic.
Now, why in the world am I getting off on a tangent on what was going on in other places and with other races when the first public school was opened and the overt oppression of blacks began in the future United States of America? Because history cannot be chopped up by race and shoveled into a month without CONTEXT.
Now, the ideology. A public school was opened BEFORE there was even a country, much less a federal government or a Department of Education. How is this even possible?
Because INDIVIDUALS saw the need to put in place an educational system in their neighborhood. INDIVIDUALS pooled their resources to benefit all of their neighbors. In other words, a CHARTER SCHOOL run and directed by PARENTS of the students.
No free lunch program, no athletics, no marching band, no dance team, no cup stacking, no school district, no state education board, no teachers unions, no shootings, no drug usage, no pregnant schoolgirls, no gay prom. The establishment of this public school defies ALL of the current ideology of even being able to hold classes!
Again, why in the world is this even an issue? Because of one glaring problem. "Progressives" continue to make the wrong-headed push for "equality" of education and exclaim that without an education, people are DOOMED to be poor.
But, let's check out what has happened at Dunbar High School since the "Progressive" ideology took over.
So, while we are enjoying Blackuary, please keep in mind there is certainly a reason why blacks never receive the quality of education received by others and there is certainly a definitive place to heap that blame.
Again I ask, why is it that "Progressive" ideology ALWAYS kills the weakest and the least able to care for themselves? Why, it is by design, of course.
Please take the time to comment.
