Default That college debate, you know?


"The 2014 Cross Examination Debate Association's national championship was held at Indiana University. The all African American female team from Towson University defeated the all African American male team from the University of Oklahoma."

I challenge you to watch that without feeling sick.

Anyway, there was a time, not so very many years ago, when I remember talking up American education specifically because rhetoric was a very applicable real-world skill that EU education systems had let slide entirely. Those where the days.

I am not often rendered speechless, but this has done it.

WTF...... No wonder the majority of them vote for the same people who enslaved them. Our schools have made them retarded.

I am guessing how its is a white mans fault that they stupidly went back in the democrat slave pens because Robert Kennedy released MLK from a jail they put him in....Then they are angry still that the democrat masters kept them under thumb using welfare and dammit that's the white mans fault to..... Glad we can see how well progressive inner city schools are doing.

Way to cherry pick a single video and judge the entire national education system on it. I guess since a gay guy got drafted into the NFL, you would deduce that all gays love football, right? Let me save you the effort. The American education system doesn't need any "talking up" from random Europeans. We appreciate your efforts, but being as I just learned about them when you posted that I'm going to go out on a limb and assume it didn't make that significant of an impact. Plus, I'm sure it was based on one single solitary American student that you met and thus you assumed that all American kids were well educated burgeoning geniuses. Our education system is what it is, and it will continue to produce both well educated kids and idiots like those above because you can only do so much with what you have.

Except Our kids are far more stupid then they were.... Have you not seen the occupy crowd? THAT is what our education system is doing. Pumping our spoiled retards who think they are owed a living. You cant fix a problem if you refuse to see it.

Fancy seeing you here.

As it happens, these fighting womyn of colour were the champions - so this is what US College debate judges consider to be the crop of the creme these days. I wish that was a joke, but alas... Your time would be better spent being angry with the people who've reduced US education to this unspeakable gibberish. And the electorate that allowed them to get away with it.
