Subject: My Name Be Eboneesha
My name be Eboneesha, an African-American girl who just got an
award for being the best speler in class. I got 57% on the
test and 30 points for being black, 10 points for not bringing
into class, 10 points for not bringing guns into class, and 10
for not getting pregnut during the cemester. It hard to beat a
score of 120%. The white dude who sit next to me is McGee from
Bronx. He got a 94% on the test but no extra points on account of
he have the same skin color as the opressirs of 150 years ago.
Granny ax me to thank all Dimocrafts and Liberals for suporting
afermative action. You showing the way to true equality. I gwine
gittin in medical skool nex an mabe I be yo doktor.
Humorous, but how true it is. A couple of years ago there was a
story in the newspaper about a girl who was the "valedictorian"
of a mostly black high school in New Orleans (pre-hurricane) but
wouldn't be graduating with her class because she couldn't
pass a state-mandated exit exam - after multiple attempts.
BTW, it doesn't take a genius to pass that exam - only the
basic knowledge that any high school grad should have.
Like the old joke says, in black areas an "honors student"
is a kid who doesn't shoot any teachers.
