    Letter to Parents from the NAACP
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    Even after correcting for socioeconomic differences, black children typically enter school performing a year behind their white counterparts.

      My mom taught in the NYC public schools.

      They're so, so broken. I have no idea how they can be fixed. The problem exists on many levels, both with the school administrators themselves as well as with the head-case parents.

        Working to build the economic base of these areas wouldn't hurt either.

        Nor would taking the time to look at what their kids are listening to and watching on TV.
