Let me ask you this-do you believe that if you take two babies, one black and one white, and raise them in a middle class,well-educated family, that the black child will behave differently from the white one?

Sure, it MIGHT work, if the host family is white. Statistics don't lie, my friend...

2:59, what statistics? Pay attention to the question you responded to. It's been clearly proven over time that when a child, regardless of color, is raised or "hosted" as you say... by a pair of well educated, hard working, successful, dedicated parents...those kids do well and become productive people at the same ratios...regardless of color.

I've been a teacher for 20 years. My students from well educated, middle class families are generally polite, well-behaved, and successful, no matter their race.

My students from homes where education and hard work are not valued tend to struggle no matter their race. And when you have a poorly raised, angry white boy-he's as bad, or worse, than any poorly raised kid of any race.

If you really believe "it MIGHT work, if the host family is white" then you are simply a bigot. I don't write that in a perjoative way-it's just who you are.

4:13 You must teach school at Chico. If you are going to bust out a $10 word at least spell it correctly. It is pejorative not "perjoative"!

Sorry for the typographical error-I am mortified.
But, as long as we are doing corrections: you need a comma between "word" and "at," and an additional comma between "pejorative" and "not."

5:21, you forgot to tell 4:58 that his/her exclamation point is to go inside the closing quotation marks. :-)

OK, Barry, if this is 'liberally lean,' you are just baiting the radical racists with this photo. There are times when good sense should prevail before you post. I think this was one of those times.
I don't care who won the game and I don't care what color they are. If we're going to base the win on anything realistic, perhaps it should be on salary. The Mavs paid over $90 MILLION dollars, while the Heat 'only' paid $70 MILLION (actually, just under). Perhaps the parade should not have any people at all in it, but just floats with huge money symbols. A blank check would be perfect!
Like 5:21, I am mortified, but by this entire blog entry -- not by the typo, but by the racist comments. I see them regularly, and generally make no comment. I have friends who are black, white, and brown. They live in every community in Wise County, and beyond. Belittling people will never strengthen our world.

5:21...There is no grammatical requirement for the commas that you suggest in my original comment. Also, it is quite ironic that you begin your sentence attempting to correct my usage with a coordinating conjunction! (But,...)
9:24...Good catch, but I was correcting the gross misspelling of a word from one who claims to be an educator. I never claimed to be one myself, just thought the mistake was glaring.

I'm so sorry, but you are incorrect. Any clause that begins with the word "if" is an adverbial clause [it states a condition]. When adverbial clauses begin a sentence, they MUST, ABSOLUTELY MUST be followed by a comma.

Also, a comma goes after the main clause when a dependent (subordinate) clause of extreme contrast follows it.

According to a usage note in the fourth edition of The American Heritage Dictionary, "But may be used to begin a sentence at all levels of style."

11:03, You did not suggest that a comma was needed after the word "If" in your original grammatical attack (@5:21) on my comment. So you suggest that sentence should read, "If, you..."? Wrong again!!!

I agree you need a comma to separate a main clause from a subordinate clause but my sentence did not contain a subordinate clause. It is a suble nuance that you obviously do not understand.

You are correct in that "but" may be used to begin a sentence, however you omitted the fact that it is highly informal and frowned upon. Do you teach your students to begin sentences with prepositions or coordinating conjunctions?

The comma is not required after "If." The comma is required at the end of the adverbial clause that begins with "If."

"It is pejorative" is an independent clause. It is followed by the subordinate clause "not "perjoative."

You ignored my source for beginning a sentence with "But." I'll repeat it: According to a usage note in the fourth edition of The American Heritage Dictionary, "But may be used to begin a sentence at all levels of style."

"All levels of style" ranges from "highly informal" to academic and professional levels. Don't argue with me; argue with The American Heritage Dictionary.

While we're dealing with the topic of "highly informal" language-if you expect formal discourse, don't begin by using the highly colloquial expression "bust out."

4:30-Nice job of attempting to move the subject to grammer rather than your bigoted nature. People can overcome poor grammar, but bigotry destroys the soul.
