Why Johnny and Hamid Can’t Read, Write or Definitely Spell? Women, Those of Indian Descent Taking Charge (YouTube Video)
White men, African American men, beware. Soon we may become extinct. Like dinosaurs. Really, white men and African American men are in real trouble in America. I probably can throw in a few other minorities and genders in some other extinct headed names in to the mix but after watching some of the National Spelling Bee on ESPN this morning (yes it was a repeat performance as the winner was chosen last week) there is a new generation of educational leadership and it’s not any of the expected categories.
The Championship Finalists were selected and there was not one, not one white kid. Looking for any African American kids, well you’d better not look at the list of finalists for the National Spelling Bee on ESPN.
Working my StairMaster this morning at the 24 Hour Fitness I had my iPod blasting some smooth jazz in my ears as I watched the flat screen in front of me checking out the National Spelling Bee. Now let me say for the record that the only class I was actually good at during my days in any level of education was spelling. And gym. And then dodge ball.
Other than that I was a simple moron in school.
But we’re facing a real issue in America today. And I’m calling out all of you parents that have kids in school yet most are only competent in text speak. You know the simple moronic communication of “LOL” which means “lots of laughs” or “TTYL” which stands for “talk to you later” and on and on with the massive amount of text speak mediocrity.
Yes, there’s not much more left in America today when none of the 11 finalists in the National Spelling Bee is a white male kid or African American child. Not one.
This is an absolute nightmare for the education system and I derive this from watching ESPN, which of course is about as close as you can come to an episode of Jerry Springer.
Yes we have too many Angry White Men and Angry Black Men in this country. White dudes complain about getting shorted and a raw deal and all of the blame for just about everything. Black men whine and moan about not being able to get a job, being held down by the white man and whatever other reason they use to put the blame on everyone else but themselves. But we have a problem in America.
A lot of people can’t spell.
Personally I don’t have to go far to see prime examples of the mediocrity of white and black males. Especially when it comes to being able to put words together in some sort of order that makes sense. I see a lot of resumes. A lot. Mostly from white guys looking for work. I own a business that deals in the mainstream and I am stunned at the lack of professionalism from some of the people I deal with every day.
Some of these people are simple morons. Morons. Hey moron, there’s a thing call ‘spell check’ on your damn computer. Wanna try to use it?
Black men, well you don’t get a break. Not at all. I interviewed one black male who came in to my office in jeans and lug looking boots for, yes, once again, an interview. I had two black men come in to my office for a meeting and both were eating a meal as they met me for the first time.
I’m not kidding.
One was munching on a donut, the other had stopped down at the McDonald’s down the street from my office prior to coming to my office. Both of these morons came in munching away.
This may read funny but it’s not. When I look at the names and determine the nationality of the top 11 finalists at the National Spelling Bee 9 of them were of Indian or Middle Eastern descent and a couple of white girls.
Am I the only one that sees this as a problem in America?
Sure these kids are citizens of this great country but every once in a while I’d like to see a person of my color or a person that looks like me compete in an educational environment.
Lots of laughs, right. Well seriously this is a problem. Nothing left to say but the next time I hear a white guy or an African American dude complain about their position in life, they’re fading away, there are too many immigrants in this country, women are taking over well the only thing I will say as I’m leaving is that I will talk to you later.
