And Martin Luther King wept...

FROM THE COMMENTS... At the Toronto Sun...

"What about a school for Newfies? Or the Portuguese? Or the Irish? Don't these cultures have a right as well to learn about their history and culture?"

"Afrocentric schools - unbelievable."

RELATED: What's the actual end result?

THE COMPASSIONATE INTELLECTUAL LEFT REPLIES:
"Me? I couldn't care less about the school. If people want it, who am I to say its wrong or tell them 'no'."

That's your answer to my question about supporting segregation? Seriously?

And call me nitpicky, Chris... you apparently care enough... to be trolling this comment thread. Or is this the work of another dastardly Chris-impersonator?

LAST WORD: Oops... we mighta forgot something
The idea of having Oakwood Collegiate become an Africentric school this fall doesn’t sit well with the co-chairs of the Oakwood school council.

“No parent, teacher, student or community consultation has occurred,” Beth Davey and David Battiston wrote to school trustees.

“The school council does not support this recommendation and is outraged that the board would table a report for trustees to consider that includes a controversial recommendation for a new program with the potential to fundamentally change a community school without community consultation.”
Oh, c'mon now... Chris said it was okay with him.

I guess if the Sun readership is against Afro-centric schools, it must be wrong. Afterall, the Sun is a very respected newspaper without a trace of bias.

( are you really this stupid? )

Why would you care about such a school?

And yes, this is the real Chris

ah, yes... once again, the uber-enlightened voices of progressia rise up in protest.

geordie questions my intelligence and a short while later (the real) chris questions my motives.

curiously... not a word from either of my phantom anti-fans about the actual merits of this endeavor.

hmmm... i dunno guys... right off the hop i guess i'd just like to understand why the two of you (and your allegedly compassionate, intellectual ilk) think that bringing back segregation is a good idea.

over to you.

Reading is not your strength is it? Try again: Why do you care about this school? Or will you “comment moderate” this one too?
