One interesting thing is Glenn Beck has gotten involved:
Jada Williams returns to GBTV, discusses freedom of speech – Glenn Beck

He had Jada Williams and her mother on his show. He made his point that this turns into a race issue because Jada uses "white teachers" instead of "teachers". Not sure what that really has to do with how the school treated the girl and her family..?

Before the end of the hour, Glenn told Jada and her family that Mercury One, his non-profit organization, would be assisting them in connecting with lawyers to help if they face any legal troubles going forward. He asked any lawyers who wanted to help to contact Mercury One.

I think this stuff happens to black children regularly (like Jada described in her essay as well as the intimidation her mother spoke on) but no one stands for them. And I sort of feel like Glenn took this as a grandstanding opportunity. Because I notice he conveyed this was about the liberals not doing their jobs in education..and how this was about that..sort of twisting what the girl said. Notice he said IF they face any legal troubles going forward.. like what would be the legal trouble ? The school isn't going to sue them..they already got what they want. Intimidating this family and Jada's parents and her so much that the result her parents came to is removing her from that school. She's been pawned off to another school. Will he and his people help her sue the school or find out ALL of their legal rights if any in this situation ?

I'm sorry if I'm cynical but the proof is in how black folks are treated time and time again.. to no avail. And I sort of feel like as people of color we do to much chit chatting about it and not enough standing up against it actively. Cause talking is just that..talking. Where are the black leaders on this issue ?

How our schools are funded, who has what and who has not, whose class size is smaller or larger, depends on how the public system is manage at the state level AND how the Federal government designs mandates and distributes categorical grants. I think the real question is how those categorical grants are distributed. They impact funding for teacher education and recruitment (how effective that will be, who knows!), they impact class sizes, and they impact outcomes among numerous other things.

I believe legal support would move mountains because distinct questions will be raised when evaluating if Jada's treatment was warranted (she could sue the school district if they did in fact doctor her transcript, looked fishy when they did not produce her work for her mom to review) (1) is this school, or district as a whole equipped to handle their mandates (2) If they are not, what practices are in place, are they to the letter or not.

Unfortunately, nothing is taken seriously until legal implications are involved.

So, I'm having a little moral dilemma...I don't know if any of you have read my thread about me being in love(intense like, really) with my best friend, but it's a whole soap opera. Things are great between us, and I guess we're dating now.

Anyway, the dilemma is that he used to date a friend of mine(they broke up 4 years ago, and I'm the one who hooked them up). She moved to another state and we don't talk much anymore. Am I obligated to tell her what's going on with our relationship out of respect, or should I wait and see if him and I become official first? I wouldn't want her to find out on her own via Facebook or something later down the line.

She broke up with him because she moved to Va, we live in Philly. It was pretty clean, they're still friends. They were only together a few months, maybe 4.

I know it's not an ideal situation and believe me, I've honestly lost sleep over it. But I really really have feelings for this guy and her and I barely talk...maybe once month, if that. She didn't even call me when my dad died in August.

She was hospitalized this summer for a week and now she is on dialysis 3 times a week. Each session takes about 4 - 4.5 hours.

I won't go into my brother's issues (starting with 200lbs overweight).

To make a long story short, I've decided that all I can do is try to help the person. If they don't want to change, I have to accept it. It's hard and I still get upset and worry which affects my health.

1) she must not value your friendship if she came in town to see some dude that doesn't want her, and made no effort to see her actual friend... wait, did she only remember your name after he rejected her, or did she at least tell you she was coming to town?

2)umm... anyone that shameless and desperate is NOT gonna take the news well. i'd wait til y'all officially have a thing going before letting her know. she might try to plant seeds of doubt in his ind about you or something.

but like... she called him and begged him for sex? and he said no? and she got upset about it? AND she told a third party about it?! now, i've never even had the first three things happen to me, but if it ever did, i DEF wouldn't tell anyone else about it. i'd take that w/ me to the grave, and if he ever told anyone, i'd deny it to the death. i do NOT want folks knowing i was ever that desperate. too much paynus out here for all that.
