A lot of people applaud the whole act of integration as though it were some form of savior for the Black community. However the reality of the truth is far from not. I can recall an incident some years ago when I made the decision to send my daughter to a Private school, one of which was geared toward instilling exceptional learning skills and abilities within its students.
I thought that I was sending my child to be educated in one of the best schools that money could afford. However, the reality of what was going on did not hit me until I asked my daughter to go in the next room and bring me a bucket. I gave her the specifics of exactly where she would find it. Ironically, she comes right back and tells me that it was not in there. I get up and go and retrieve the bucket myself sitting in the exact location of where I initially told her it was. After which I called her and asked her did she not see this bucket? She responded, “Dad that’s not a bucket, that’s a pal!” Almost immediately I knew that it was time for a change. That small incident gave me insight as to how this whole idea of integration has reprogrammed our culture. Before we made the decision to send her to that private school, my daughter never paid attention the tones of anyone’s skin. But society, government, school systems and the likes creates these stigmas and we are left to endure the vices of them. What a price to pay.
Ed Smith quoted, “One of the prices that we pay for integration was the disintegration of the Black community.” I have found this to be true. Damn, what a price to pay!
