With friends like the Democrats, black people don’t need any enemies. The latest Democrat poster child comes from Missouri, where Governor Jay Nixon delivers metaphorical lashes to his black constituents. As The Beacon reports:
“For the first time since 1971, there will be no African-Americans serving on the nine-person board [UM Board of Curators]. Each hails from one of the state's nine congressional districts, and all require confirmation by the state Senate. There also is a non-voting student representative.
The only African-American curator that had been on the board, Cheryl Walker, is officially off now that Nixon on Tuesday named her successor, former state Sen. Wayne Goode of Normandy, who is white. Both reside in the racially diverse 1st congressional district, where past African-American curators often -- but not always -- have resided. (All but one have come from the St. Louis area; the exception was one African-American curator, Angela Bennett, from Kansas City.)”
It’s just as well that Nixon put a stop to black representation at the university level, since blacks have one of the lowest college and university entry rates in America. That’s certainly not Nixon’s fault. It is black peoples’ fault for continuing to support Democrats like Nixon, however. It's pretty clear that Democrats care more about the teacher's union, than they do about educating blacks! Read more here...
