Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Cynthia Tucker speaks...

And usually, I have to disagree. I would have to go so far as to assert that Cynthia and I are very nearly polar opposites on most issues... but not this one. Using racism as an excuse for life's travails is indeed a cop out. Perhaps, in some places, racism is still holding people back. This is debatable, and will be debated until the end of time. But Tucker goes further - she states unapologetically that "parents are the most important factor in any child's education." She goes on to infer that parents should not use race as an excuse for failure, as some, for example, in Shaker Heights, Ohio, have done. The thesis in Tucker's commentary is that, if parents exert the right influence, their kids will be more likely to excel. Amen, Cynthia. Maybe part of you is a rugged individualist.
