    It's an obvious question, with an easy answer. Our nation's bipartisan political elite have decided to privatize public education. They know the only way they can execute this deeply unpopular policy is to do it on the down-low, with a minimum of coverage, and no mention of the p-word, especially of growing civic resistance to it.

    Shutting down schools, but I bet they build 100 Prisons this year....not that they are teaching anything substantial in there anyway...A wise man told me, it's time we build our own schools.

    schools are being shut down in philly…apparently you can do what you want to black people with no consequences
    black people are accepting of all the mess that is put on us, no more marches, no protests, we have no fight left

    I think there's fight left....just those with it are few and far between....and often times those who poses the most of it aren't properly educated in how to use that fight.

    We are being bombarded with Weapons of Mass "distractions". This keeps our eyes focused on whats around us but not on whats ahead of us.
