@15 "How come there’s no achievement “gap” for black students from Africa?"
Because they weren't raised in a country that enslaved their ancestors and has been blaming the victim of its institutional racism ever since to make itself feel better.

Income tax, please, with no loopholes.
Then these coupon clippers can start earning their wealth by risking it on investments that build the economy.
I think they are getting lazy with all the dough we are letting them keep. No risk; no fun.
commented on A Spectre Is Haunting Seattle—the Spectre of Non-Democratism
Fear is on the march at Slog. Too bad it is misdirected at a plain spoken socialist politician. What about the things the Dems have not said word one about: Fukushima, real healthcare (instead of corporate welfare for insurance CEOs), educational system being parceled out to crony capitalists, the death of the planet we live on. Come on! Let's turn this ship around. Dems can get on board if they want to help.
