With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Same sex marriage yes; same sex education no

For the third year in a row, the all-male senior class of Urban Prep Academy has defied the odds with their 100 percent graduation rate. Couple that with a 100 percent college admittance rate and Chicago-based Urban Prep has become an oddity in a system where failure is the rule rather than the exception.

But this success, achieved primarily because of the school’s all-male environment, is under attack by the American Civil Liberties Union who launched the “Teach Kids, Not Stereotypes” initiative last month to end the practice of separating boys and girls in public schools.

“Supporters of single-sex education make vague claims that these programs get results but don’t have the proof to back it up,” said Mie Lewis, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. “Instead of implementing these gimmicky programs, schools should focus on strategies that work for all students.”  From: The Final Call
