Basically: white people ruin everything we can’t even have shit that is literally brown stay brown :|
here is a link to the actual article though.
His discovery prompted French botanist Jean Michel Claude Richard to claim that he had in fact taught Albius the technique years earlier, and some of the French press would later claim that Albius was white. (This journal article from 1900 acknowledges that Albius was a black slave, and also says his master had him study botany.) Albius was eventually freed when slavery was abolished in 1848, and he died in poverty. But the hand-pollinating technique he created is still used on vanilla plants today, which is one of the reasons why pure vanilla flavor is still so expensive.
but of course!
Dozens of students marched from Chicago Public Schools headquarters to the Thompson Center Wednesday in support of state legislation that would set new limits on suspensions and expulsions.
The march, organized by Voices of Youth in Chicago Education, protested alleged bias in school disciplinary practices and backed state Senate Bill 3004setting stricter standards for offenses that can result in suspension or expulsion.
"We’re not asking for no discipline," said Mariama Bangura, a junior at Roosevelt High School and a youth leader for VOYCE and the Albany Park Neighborhood Council. "We’re asking for common-sense discipline."
Agreed a teacher at Roosevelt, Tim Meegan: “As a teacher, I’m the first person to defend a teacher’s right to throw a student out of class for misbehavior that disrupts the educational learning environment. However, I see kids being suspended and expelled for minor infractions all the time, and it disrupts the student’s education and impairs my ability to teach those kids.”
Organizers of the march said hundreds of thousands of kids were suspended across Illinois last year.
"When you have a school year with 272,000 out-of-school suspensions, something is wrong," said Jessica Schneider, of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which also came out in support of the bill in the General Assembly. “This legislation will make a big change for all of Illinois and make a big step toward better and common-sense student discipline.”
Protesters chanted, “Student power!” as they marched. At the Thompson Center, they delivered a letter to Gov. Pat Quinn seeking his support for the bill in the General Assembly. They also cracked open a Dora the Explorer pinata filled with No. 2 pencils and labeled “Our Illinois Discipline Code.”
Schneider also pointed to how the Noble Network of charter schools had recently announced a halt to disciplinary fines, which she said “unfairly affected low-income families, students of color [and] families living in poverty.”
Parents and students have charged Noble with bias on discipline, and Meeganechoed charges that schools cherry-pick students to increase test-score averages by removing poorer students through expulsions.
Officials with the Noble Network did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The bill is sponsored by state Sen. Kimberly Lightford (D-Westchester) and has cleared committee and is now under consideration by the full Senate.
