Wanna know why our education system sucks? Guys like this are teachers:
This Wednesday, July 14, 2010 photo shows teacher and author Ray Sabini, who goes by the pen name Raymond Bean, during an interview about his book for middle grade readers, “Sweet Farts, Rippin’ it Old-School,” in New York.

Shirley Sherrod’s story is one about redemption, about how she overcame her own prejudices and helped a white south Georgia couple keep their family farm.
A lot of people don’t want you to know that. They are determined to hide their own racism by insisting that those they are bigoted against are the real racists. Partisan agendas are more important than racial healing, and victimhood trumps all.
Sherrod made the mistake of being honest, and she lost her job for it. Her staunchest defenders? Roger and Eloise Spooner, the white couple she allegedly discriminated against.
Now the Spooners are being patronized by certain people who feel it’s their duty to tell them what they should think. The Spooners could care less. They still have their farm, and Sherrod deserves plenty of credit, Eloise Spooner told me.
That’s a story of healing, one that’s more prevalent in this country then stories of division. I’m proud I was able to help tell it and have very little patience for anyone seeking to distort the facts.
