7's Brightest and Best

Post by jsf » Sat May 11, 2019 7:31 pm

Channel 7 was celebrating it's 40th Brightest and Best today, I'm thinking that it used to be called the Best and Brightest, I wonder if it's some kinda PC move.

It was called Best of the Class. Changed due to copyrights that went with the song.

Given the state of Michigan education in 2019,I almost believe today's "Best Of Class" would have been C students in 1980 .

At least we Baby Boomers aren't MAJOR HYPOCRITES like the "Greatest Generation," who fought World War Two to end Naziism,only to practice apartheid against African Americans !!!!!

Could you take a moment and explain to the others what the Canadian Indian residential school system was about? You know, the unmarked graves where no one has even tried to determine who these kids are or even how many died.
The 5% of Canada that is indigenous, makes up 30% of the shelter residents in Canada.

Dude... have you ever been outside Ontario?

FET500,as someone with Indigenous relatives (who lived next door when we were children),I know of the horrors of the residential schools whose heinous mission was "Save the child,kill the Indian," and which rent families,forbade the speaking of Indigenous languages and wearing of First Nations attire ,often physically and mentally abusing its young charges and are largely responsible for the horrible conditions in which many Indigenous Canadians live,on and off reservations .
Also,yes,I've left Ontario MANY,MANY TIMES .( How often have YOU visited Canada,boyo ?) You aren't fooling me,dude: You have as much concern (zilch) for North America's First Peoples as for African Americans and African Canadians.
