This week’s Coulter quote of the week illustrates how the queen of hate is going to enrich the community and raise the political discourse in the country and community when she speaks for 30 grand at the Cleary University’s Economic Club Speakers Luncheon Series in the fall.
It further illustrates how she speaks for Republicans, no matter how hard publicly the GOP tries to distance themselves from her.
Tuesday saw a perfect example how groups like Cleary are furthering and enforcing the false image of Howell and Livingston County as a racist, intolerant community that throws down the red carpet and money at bigots of all shapes and sizes, and how others are trying to do away with that image.
From the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus, students from mostly white Howell High School and a predominantly black high school near Flint have begun an exchange program with the first meeting to discuss the controversial book "The Freedom Writers Diary." Students from Cathy Capy's 10th-grade accelerated English class met with students from Hamady High School this month, and the hope is to develop a permanent relationship between the schools.
"The students want to change the image that we're a racist community and that we're intolerant," said Capy, whose assignment of "The Freedom Writers Diary" started a dispute over the sexual content of the book earlier in the school year. "They said we can't change unless we know what we need to change. They're stepping out of their comfort zone."
