re: Baltimore protests - dewster
Some of my wife's more liberal friends from that area are furious that this is happening. She said they are the same ones that were posting "burn it down" on Facebook when the Ferguson riots were happening. I hope this comes to a swift end. I live outside Memphis, which is a powder keg with r...

[quote]The $50,000 could only be used to start a small business. [/quote] That's what VC's and a host of other private funding alternatives are for. Questionable government policy that segregated our cities and ruined our schools is a big part of the reason that the achievement gap between A...

re: Pure Chaos breaks out at "White Station Highschool" in Memphis - dewster
White Station High has an optional/magnet program that's actually quite good. It's a typical Memphis public high school if you are not in that optional program.
