If you were aware that you would need supplies for this school year, why didn't you find a job (any job) rather than expecting someone else to give to you what you didn't feel was worth working for yourself?

If whites had such a thing for the white kids, the black would have a fit and we would be called racist.

So actually due dumb, white kids do attend these events. Have worked these events in philly and bmore; quite a few white kids are in these neighborhoods and are doing just as bad financially as blacks.

They are NOT serving a meal to get parents to come. A gathering with an educational purpose and no food?? Good for them!
