Very smart, courageous too. Yet now I fear for his safety.
Being honest, factual, intelligent and articulate are characteristics that SF Libs will go to great lengths to silence.
He certainly won't be recognized and treated royally like "Bomb Kid"
Yeah, they're not sending a good message to these kids.
"Hello there, everyone. I know the vast majority of you are black and latino, but we wanted you to vote in more diversity. Therefore, your vote doesn't count unless we like the outcome."
I miss when election results were only supposed to be representative of how voters voted.
Bush v. Gore put an end to that.
I checked out the story from the San Francisco's TV station KTVU (http://www.ktvu.com/news/33724074-story), and it appears to be a case (IMO) of a misguided school principal. The racial make-up of the student body is 80% minority, and it appears that the election was won by white students.
To that I'd have to say, "tough noogies."
You either need to rig the election beforehand, or you accept the results according to the rules by which it was run. After the fact, it's too late to change the rule, just because you didn't like the outcome.
Yeah. SF liberals are notorious for resorting to violent retribution when their PC plans are thwarted.
If the school is 80% minorities, then it's not like the white students won by all voting for the white student, 20% of the vote doesn't let that happen. Either it was only white students who bothered to run, in which case the other students should let this be a lesson of what happens if you choose not to exercise your rights, or these were the students that they actually wanted to vote for in which case the results should stand.
4 of the 10 elected positions when to white (18% of students),asian (5% of students) or mixed race students.
Given half a chance, I bet they'd go so far as to cast slightly indignant stares in his general direction.
nah, they might expel him & find other ways to make him a sheep like the rest of the liberals "think like we want you to think or else".....................
Let's not go that route, because it's not like quote unquote your side is any less ridiculous when it comes to racial issues.
I don't even care of they turn James Bond black
start at post 83
The principal is an idiot and should be removed.
"not as smart or as good looking as punch master, but I charge 1/4 of what he does & I take coupons"
...I ALWAYS KNEW YOU WERE A GOONY HOOKER!
Also, Denzel Washington wouldn't make a good Bond. He's not British enough.
just sent you some coupons
Denzel Washington is a decent actor, when it comes to movies I really don't care if they swap genders/races as long as they do a good job at at. I could have been Yoda is he had a mexican accent or one of the hobbits as well, they could have saved so much money on make up by hiring me, but nooooooo, my accent was not good enough
That sounds like an over-reaction to a relatively minor issue to me.
what would you suggest?
Better be a BOGO...
He is a good actor, but some things are an institution. Getting anyone else but a Brit to play James Bond would be like getting an American actor to play Doctor Who. It just isn't right.
Imagine if this decision was made because too many black people were elected. There would be riots in the streets.
Van Haren is an ass and should never teach again.
Great lesson in democracy.
I think some of her bosses should have a little talk with her.
Like an exit interview?
Hate to say it, but a principal screwing with a student council election is hardly a termination worthy offense, no matter how stupid the reasoning behind it.
