Screw academics & a work ethic

Just tell me a good story...

Antoine, who is African-American, will begin his senior year in September at his large, predominantly black and low-income high school just outside Washington.

He had come to Howard for an intense four-day workshop in the complex process he will have to master if he is to fulfill his aspirations of upward mobility: applying to college.

The workshop is intended to help them discover — and prove to college admissions officials — that their life stories can be as powerful as high SAT scores and stellar grades.
Forget all that horse-pucky about working hard to make something of your life.

It's about the entertainment value, stupid.

after 'graduation' they'll all get government funded 'jobs' and a pat on the head anyhow, so it's only expensive for taxpayers and insulting to the black community - standard liberal stuff...
