Otis Mathis admits he struggles to write coherent sentences, but he serves as president of the Detroit Board of Education.
....a couple of email messages indicating just how poorly Mathis writes.
Mathis was placed in special education classes in Middle School, says he graduated from High School with a 1.8 grade point average and went on to earn a bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Wayne State University.
- If you saw Sunday's Free Press that shown Robert Bobb the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, move Mark Twain to Boynton which have three times the number seats then students and was one of the reason's he gave for closing school to many empty seats.
- Do DPS control the Foundation or outside group? If an outside group control the foundation, then what is DPS Board row with selection of is director? Our we mixing DPS and None DPS row's, and who is the watch dog?
Since then, he's been a leader in the community: he started businesses, served as Wayne County Commissioner , worked as a substitute teacher for Detroit Public Schools and now helps set academic policy as president of the school board.
Mathis admits he struggles to string together a coherent sentence, but if you watch the video above (recorded during his failed bid for City Council), you'll see he can string together coherent thoughts, and peers say he's engaging.
But does it send a bad message to students of the struggling district if one of their leaders cannot write well? Or can he serve as a role model for the power of perseverance?
This guy can barely read or write, was placed in "special" education and graduated with a 1.8 grade point average........yet got a bachelor's degree in criminal justice!
That is affirmative action.
That is the result of the belief in "equality".
That is the result of "fair play".
An incompetent black guy being pushed through the system and patted on the back because he is "engaging" is exactly the reason our country is FUBAR right now.
And it's worse than that. Political Correctness insists that all are equal and those who oppose that demented idea are castigated from society.
The result is not only borderline retarded education officials but deranged psychopaths like the Ft. Hood killer who, despite being glaringly unqualified and identified as espousing radical Islamic beliefs, was nonetheless promoted and patted on the back. ('Army superiors were warned about the radicalization of Major Nidal Malik Hasan years before he allegedly massacred 13 soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, but did not act in part because they valued the rare diversity of having a Muslim psychiatrist, military investigators wrote in previously undisclosed reports.')
As for the comment in the article about the semi-illiterate black school board president being "engaging", I'm reminded of another black leader....
And to that I offer the observation of Thomas Jefferson on the subject,
"They astonish you with strokes of the most sublime oratory..... But never yet could I find that a black had uttered a thought above the level of plain narration."
