black studies and conservative orthodox jewish kid...ahhhhh

ok, these quotes are actually from this kid, richard, in my black studies class. and i want to preface these quotes by telling you that richard is honestly just this ignorant. he is honestly saying these things because he honestly thinks this. enjoy.

Teacher: what are some of the differences between living here and in Africa?
Richard: well, in Africa you just have all those tribes. (Class goes completely silent.)
Teacher: (who is from Africa) what do you mean by tribes?
Richard: well, you know, dressing up in face paint, dancing around fires, singing to the spirits...that kind of stuff. (In the dead silence of the classroom, you can hear someone whisper, "Oh, my god...")

Then we watched this movie about the student revolutions in Africa. In one scene, the gradeschool students had started chanting, "Freedom, Freedom" and they threw books at their teacher because the soldiers had already taken away and killed their favorite teacher who taught them to think for themselves. Then the soliders who were patrolling their campus with machine guns came over and started gunning down the little unarmed kids down.
Teacher: What are some of the reasons that the revolution failed for so long?
Richard: Well, the kids should have used better tactics against the soldiers. (Dead silence in the room.) I mean, they should have studied basic military tactics. They should have all rushed the soldiers with the guns so that some of them would die, but at least they would take out the soldier.
Student: The unarmed ten year olds should have had better tactics against a full grown man with a gun??? I'm sorry but when I was ten, I certainly wasn't plotting military tactics to take down men with machine guns. What ten year old is like, "Ok, guys, some of us are gonna die, but at least we'll take down one soldier!" I don't think so!
