My biology teacher showed us this video in college.
I wasn’t fucking with the ocean before. I damn sure wasn’t fucking with it after this.
A history book is your friend.
And so is Google.
Fact check before you go making yourselves look like idiots.
Do people forget that Malcolm X spoke with proper grammar? That Huey Newton spoke with proper grammar?
While if a young brother today uses a big word or speaks with proper grammar, many times he’s told that he’s “talking white”. Or if a young brother spends his time reading he is told that he is “acting white”.
If you think that way, then you’ve been indoctrinated by the white power structure and that’s you whose not “being real” my brother.
And that’s the truth, that’s what’s Black.
this has a deeper meaning. the light bulb represents an idea of an individual and the mouse trap represents how quick society is to destroy that idea.
are you fucking retarded no its just a lightbulb falling on a mousetrap shut the fuck upGuys idk what the meaning is but if it is what the first person said you’re kind of proving it right. She said her idea and now you’re judging it, just like she said society would. So

1. The people in charge have all the answers.
That’s why they are so wealthy and happy and healthy and powerful—ask any teacher.
2. Learning ends when you leave the classroom.
Your fort building, trail forging, frog catching, friend making, game playing, and drawing won’t earn you any extra credit. Just watch TV.
3. The best and brightest follow the rules.
You will be rewarded for your subordination, just not as much as your superiors, who, of course, have their own rules.
4. What the books say is always true.
Now go read your creationism chapter. There will be a test.
5. There is a very clear, single path to success.
It’s called college. Everyone can join the top 1% if they do well enough in school and ignore the basic math problem inherent in that idea.
6. Behaving yourself is as important as getting good marks.
Whistle-blowing, questioning the status quo, and thinking your own thoughts are no-nos. Be quiet and get back on the assembly line.
7. Standardized tests measure your value.
By value, I’m talking about future earning potential, not anything else that might have other kinds of value.
8. Days off are always more fun than sitting in the classroom.
You are trained from a young age to base your life around dribbles of allocated vacation. Be grateful for them.
9. The purpose of your education is your future career.
And so you will be taught to be a good worker. You have to teach yourself how to be something more.
“learning ends when you leave the classroom” could be a bit more clear. otherwise, on the money.
