After they finished working today, I gave my last class a few minutes to talk about the immigration law. The kids LOVE talking immigration law.
After one boy enthusiastically explained how he was going to bring over all the gangs in Mexico to prepare for the impending Mexicans vs. Whites war, another kid announced to me that I should be celebrating because my class sizes would be way down. (Ah, insightful products of our public education system.) Just for fun, I asked the kids what percent of the school they thought was here illegally. The kids started shouting out numbers, and the lowest one I heard was 92%. Finally, one boy raised his hand and calmly counted it out:
“Well, there are three black kids. And there are two white kids. Everybody else is going to be GONE by next year.”
