Feel Good Story of the Day: Child porn suspect found dead in jail hours after arrest submitted by HarveyKlinger to news

parrygrin 0 points 41 points (+41|-0) ago

Yep. We now know the government has the ability to plant child porn on devices. Jury trials and due process are more important than ever.

Everyone hates millennials. Thats very bad news for student protesters. submitted by gramman74 to news

parrygrin 3 points 40 points (+43|-3) ago

This article is shitty. Millennials do have problems, big ones, but they've been told to blame the racists, the patriarchy, etc. instead of, yannow, money-grubbing lobbyists. Corporations, unions, the fucking AARP...all shit run by boomers making sure they get theirs and pretending the fault lies with somebody else.

Just because the kids are whining about bullshit on tv doesn't mean they don't also have real problems that don't drive ratings.

Shit, who do you think even watches TV? Millennials are more likely to be cord-cutters. No ratings there. No wonder the narrative is so boomer-friendly and anti-millennial.

I've been a high-end SAT tutor for more than a decade. I've worked in five states, billed for $300 an hour, done non-profit work in the hood, and even worked a Korean-style hagwon. My industry is worth billions (a million seconds is 11 days, a billion seconds is 32 years) of dollars annually. I'm extremely good at what I do.

I would argue that punting in the direction of demographic change on this issue is not wise.

The one-on-one tutoring industry insulates white kids, and the cram school industry insulates Asian kids from a steadily degrading education system. The non-profit programs that black and hispanic kids get sometimes do good work, but they just can't compete on a number of levels and for a number of reasons.

As such, disadvantaged kids are canaries in the coal mine. The school system is fucked, and you should be upset, because Americans actually spend more on education than anything else except health care, including defense. You just never hear about it because the numbers are always reported state by state, instead of nationally.

The SAT (and the ACT, for that matter) are actually pretty fucking great, and they test intellectual skills that are relevant to the real fucking world. The problem is that the skills they test are incredibly basic, and are not a guarantee of scientific literacy, civic competence, or a hundred other things necessary for a healthy society. Voting, business, relationships... hell, I have yet to even hear rumors of any sex education class that doesn't have glaring omissions that I would argue render them medically unsound.

Scarsdale High School blows over 25 grand a kid per year, and the parents then turn right around and hire a guy like me at the end of it all. This is our society's best case scenario.

Ignorance is a solution to nothing. Our society wallows in it.

No, it's fucked, and you all shouldn't just be upset about it, you should be terrified.

Study: Black teachers more likely to recommend black students for gifted programs submitted by tohuvabohu to news

parrygrin 12 points -10 points (+2|-12) ago

And I bet white teachers recommend more white students. In other news, water is wet, yeah?

Idiot comment of the day: " it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book," President Barack Obama submitted by Mr_Sir to whatever

parrygrin 9 points -5 points (+4|-9) ago

Voat, I fucking love you, but Jesus Christ. There is no Barnes & Noble, no Best Buy, in Bed-Stuy or Harlem, and the libraries do their best, but are decidedly less than awesome.

Dude, hate on Obama, absolutely, there are shitloads of perfectly good reasons. This isn't one of them.

Seriously, BLM is full of shit, but it's full of shit because dead darkies can't make license plates and fill beds that the state government guaranteed the prison corporation would be filled in their contract.

Race in America isn't about how awesome it is to be white. It just really is that shitty to be black.

And yes, a lot of their shit is self-inflicted, but it is in no way their fault that Nixon literally created the war on drugs to fuck with them. That's kind of a big fucking deal.

Women. And science. submitted by shadow332 to whatever

Meh. I prefer pointing out that Russian women seem to see no contradiction between tech and looking hot.
