Reporting in from the slagheap of black aspiration:
I read a survey not so long ago in which a shocking ("Shocked! Shocked!") 66 percent of all African-American males between the ages of 13 and 18 said they believe they can earn a living playing professional sports. The logical conclusion is that most of that percentile also sense that getting a good education is not really all that necessary, i.e. "Screw the SATs. I can play for the CLIPPERS!" And, in the survey, a fair number of their parents seconded that emotion. GOD HOW I HATE PROFESSIONAL SPORTS! There oughta be a law.
