@Neagle, in the Carlin quote, please replace "big wealthy business interests" with "teachers union".

Now the boy suffers because the momma has principals. Just do the service. Maybe in a library? Then he can read some morez.

Where is the video of the actual incident? You know everyone had their cell phones out in full force that day. I hate sensationalized media coverage that only covers people's opinions without covering the facts at the center of it all.

By the way, funniest part - 1:06 I almost cried 'cause that was so funny.

I knew Fancy posted this before I saw his name. I wonder if Fancy spelled it "Cerimony" in his HS if they'd let him graduate.

That's really out of order.

Also, well done to him for graduating high school, only just being able to read...

Cheering? It's a celebration and you can't cheer loudly? I don't get it

George Carlin on American education: “It will never, ever, ever be fixed. It won’t get any better. Don’t look for it....The owners of this country don’t want that... The real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all important decisions. They own you. They own everything... They own all the big media companies. So they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.... They want more for themselves, and less for everybody else.... They don’t want well informed, well educated people... They want obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork...”

@LordJim are you really that f***ing stupid that I have to explain this to you? I've been to a number of graduation ceremonies over the years, and yes, black people tend to whoop and holler much, much more than white, Hispanic, or Asian people do when one of them graduates.

Also, I don't know about where you come from, but here we have this thing called affirmative action that gives preferential treatment to blacks over whites and Asians even if their grades and test scores are lower.

That's drated up.

On a side note, how was he able to graduate without being able to read something aloud?

It's worth looking into the culture of the NCAA and college sports, that allows for athletes to be exploited for their talents while not getting anything in return.

Perhaps he's not qualified to attend college, where plenty of others out there are. But who's opening the door for him to do so? Certainly not the high school, regardless of his academic ability.

So long as universities have a major financial incentive to recruit football players in what basically amounts to a de facto farm system for the NFL, this will continue to play out in America.

Well, tbf I knew a couple football players who graduated HS and couldn't read at all. Actually one didn't graduate because he quit the football team his senior year.

It would be a lot easier to cheer this kid on if he could demonstrate a reading ability higher than the 5th-grade level. Granted, not everyone's going to be a linguistic wizard, but if this kid's entering college, would, say, an 8th-grade reading ability be too much to ask?

So, do you imagine any of that is likely to happen, unless the wronged party sues?


Probably not, no. But that's ALSO not what i suggested. My suggestion was, and i quote: "In short, sue the man, not the school!"

My problem is not with him taking legal action. It's with him taking legal action against a public institution, and in the process punishing hundreds of innocent people, instead of against the man responsible.

If there's some good reason why that's not a good idea (other than profit), i'll shut up.

Highschool is a joke and a half these days, they cheered for everybody at my grad. I dont see the problem with showing some good emotion for these kids success.

For the people rippin on him cause he isnt a great reader, you are all foolish.

My 20 hours of community service would be going around the school posting signs about the stupidity of the administration. I totally understand why they wouldn't answer calls, they know they're being douchebag morons and don't want to try to dig themselves out of the crater they're in now. I hope a lawyer takes the case pro bono and destroys these idiots.
