OC Blues Resolve to Tear Down the Duke and Rename Airport. These Pilgrims Make You Want to Puketeh y

Like Diongenes with a lantern trying to find the face of an honest man
Harder to find in an inner city school, a kid at grade level to read, write or math understand
Not the fault of the mostly black or Latino students but of a school system doomed to fail
Causing kids to drop out or graduate with a degree that’s not a ticket to a job but to prison and jail
Blues in Orange County are attacking John Wayne as a racist and white supremacist and want to airport rename
Rather than trying to tear Duke’s statue down let’s put some truth out and dowse the rhetoric flames
“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” John Wayne Playboy interview
All should want the best and brightest in leadership and over us judgment
Not mental or corrupt midgets crushed by problems seeking solutions to them sent
His meaning is very clear—blacks are not inferior to whites because of their genes
Whatever superiority whites seem to possess is due to the education scene
Whites are not more capable due to their genes
Their schools more likely pass on more skills to them to achieve their dreams
Bring blacks up in education scoring and he is with them all the way
Would be the first to dump ideas of white supremacy into Newport’s Back Bay
Our failing urban schools are a national disgrace
Yet tooth and nail Public Teachers’ Unions fight to them with charter schools not replace.
Renaming and tearing down the Duke will not improve black needed learning one bit
Deserves our scorn, makes us want to puke, weakens kids of color’s ability to advance with True Grit
