While I bemoan the educational system and standards set today, and I am disturbed that she was expelled from her school because of her paper, I find it ironic that this girl is using Fredrick Douglas, of all people, to blame white people for the problems that her fellow minority students appear to face.
Fredrick Douglas penned the discourse "What Are the Colored People Doing for Themselves?" where he states, emphatically, that when the bonds of slavery are eradicated, he appreciates any additional efforts from whites to improve the lot of the black man, he expects that they will run out of energy. But the bulk of improvement should be done by themselves and that white people should not be held accountable for any lacking.
If it's true that the teachers are not teaching minorities in order to keep them repressed, then that is an evil that needs eradicating. However, I would be willing to wager that any white students in Jada's class are equally neglected. It's a neglect of social standing - a community in poverty is going to have a poor education. Sadly, it's self-fulfilling cycle - many students simply don't want to be there, making teachers even less interested in attempting to teach. Those kids eventually drop-out, grow up and have children in poverty. Black or white, it doesn't matter - if you can't hire proper teachers, then education will falter.
