    And people wonder why racism continues? What message does this send to the students that were left behind? "If you have lousy grades you get to go on fun trips and if you work hard and get good grades you get stuck in class?"

    Ann Arbor elementary school bans white students from field trip, principal defends discrimination
    "I have a dream, that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!" - Martin Luther King, Jr.
    Remember a few years ago that the phrase "driving while black" was used often to excuse being pulled over for whatever traffic violation? Well, looks like now there is a more real racism - "learning while white." You don't get a ticket for being white. Instead, you lose your educational opportunity. From Ann Arbor.com (HT: Jennifer Gratz on FB): Field trip for black students sparks controversy at Ann Arbor elementary school
    An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his schoolÂ’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

    Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.

    If anything the parents of the black students should be mad. Sounds to me like the teachers think that negro students need "extra motivation" to learn while the white kids just learn on their own.
