the link brought me to one of two letters mr adams wrote. i went to page 2 to see the other letter. it cleared things up a little for me.but i do understand how the young lady felt, it can be devastating hearing some truth for the first time...a couple of my former professors were known to be no holds barred an d they let me know when they thought i had to apply myself more....they didn't coddle anyone...in my day they did not let students in to college if they couldn't fulfill high school basic standards...nowadays kids go to college and are given remedial math and english, something they should have passed in high school...many people believe black americans have been held down by massive entitlements and are now on a symbolic dermocratic plantation...two black people of high worth have told me this...yet when a chance to help black children is offered(as in washington dc) it's thwarted. to what end?
