Ms_Rational 1 year, 5 months ago on DCSS showing signs of progress

It is so nice to know that all of a sudden the Albany Herald truly cares about the 16,000 (95% black) students in the DCSS. Your concern has nothing to do with black students going to college. It about the 'undercover agenda' to take back a school system that whites VOLUNTARILY left. Now, that private school education is unaffordable; working class, poor whites need somewhere to send their children for free. Also, white teachers (who left voluntarily) need jobs in DCSS because private schools are closing. So you rip ASU as the culprit for BAD teachers to justify going outside the system for QUALIFIED teachers and administrators. Gimmie a Break!!!! You have taken pride in tearing down the DCSS with false accusations, lies, and misrepresentations so whites can come RESCUE the poorly governed DCSS. Sadly to say, I have seen this play a matter of fact its the same play that whites have played since stealing America. Whats even sadder is that blacks are still falling it.
But I can't even be made at you. You have an agenda and you are fighting to see it thru. Blacks have no agenda and we have not learned how to play the game. I'll keep praying...only God can open blind eyes.

Yes, the DCSS needs changes, but I want fair changes that are in the Best interest of ALL students; not just the ones whose parents are too broke to keep them is private school.

As for the Bush, Riggins, and Griffin, I say to them, I'll rather be right and lose, than win and be wrong.

This DWS parent of four student athletes need to withdraw his children from this "segregation" school. What did he think he was getting when he decided to enroll his children in that school. It was created in 1964 ....the same year the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed. I almost don't feel sorry for him.

Also, the "Goal Program" is a joke. The only goal DWS got is to recruit black ATHLETES, NOT STUDENTS to run, jump, catch and throw good enough so they can be #1 among private schools. So sad blacks are falling for it.

Just the thought of having to play black schools in black neighborhoods, got'em scared and shaking in the knees,

My heart aches for the families....

Homegrown terrorists will strip us of our freedoms....not muslims.

Food for thought: A Black man kills, he's a menace to society. A Foreign man kills, he's a terrorist. But a White man kills, he's psychologically unstable.

The 5-year plan to takeover (oops I mean renovate) west central albany in falling into place. Lane Price will vote in favor of making Albany High a private (oops i mean public charter) school. Now, the Albany Housing Authority is kicking out (oops I mean temporarily relocating) the residents of McIntosh Homes (who naively believe that they will move back in once the renovation is complete).

One of these days, African Americans will wake up in Albany and realize that racism is no longer masked by white sheets...but is much more sly and sophisticated.

All of sudden, whites who desserted the DOCO school system and for the most part left Albany to live in Lee County....NOW they are DEEPLY concerned about the plight of poor blacks and their children...GIVE ME A BREAK. Its all about money! And enticing whites to move back to Albany...but first they need an upscale neighborhood and a FREE private (oops I mean public charter) school to offer.

But as long as blacks continue to fall for this trick and really believe that whites in Albany are going to rescue their schools and neighborhoods....they are always going to be played for the fool.

One of these days, blacks will sit down and plan out another 5-year plan....and hopefully that one will have the best interest of everyone....not just one segment...and then Albany can join other American cities and truly move FOWARD....

We are one.

How dare the Albany Herald post a picture like that on their website? Comparing the First Lady to a monkey! I am highly offended.

The Albany Herald just keeps proving that it is a racist media outlet.

The Obama's are a beautiful family...stop hating.

I bet 'welfare voters' is code for Black voters. Please pick up a real newspaper or watch something other than foxnews...Unemployment rates are staggering, which means many white voters are now receiving government entitlements. That's the only reason jobs is the #1 campaign issue. As long as Blacks were the only ones with high unemployment, you didn;t hear a peep about jobs. Stop being so shallow.

The Albany Herald is such a racist media outlet. Why is this the squawk of the day? Yes, ASU is a HBCU. Would some of you prefer the term "University Created due to Racist US Laws". ASU is open to anyone who wants to attend.

Plus, since white privilege has been the law of the land since Christopher Columbus "found" (wink-wink) America, there is no need to term anything 'white'.

Lastly, I am sorry that so many whites cannot face and own ALL of their history; not just the parts that make them feel good. It's because of white racism, that there are HBCU's. You ought to be happy that in the face of hatred and bigotry, Blacks created their own schools to improve themselves.

HBCU's should have been embraced and supported financially; instead, some of the very people who complain that Blacks need to go to school and get a job, offer no support to a community that have endured one of the harshest past. HBCU's ought to be applauded. But Albany racism never dies, it just appears with a new face.
