A South Carolina-based teacher asked the 5th graders to explain how the K.K.K. thinking works in an assignment. The teacher asked the students to explain what they think about the African-American justification works. This worksheet, which was issued to the students as part of the reconstruction period in the nation, caused a panic expedition among the students after one student’s uncle posted the same assignment on Facebook.
In a statement by the school district based in South Carolina, this assignment was valued because the standard of education for the 5th graders in the region requires discriminatory and reconstruction groups to attend such lessons including the K.K.K. According to the school district, they are using standards of teaching to ensure the students learn what discrimination entails. However, the same assignment will never be used again in any South Carolina-based school. The school district also insisted that they must teach that standard as much as they take steps to educate the children in the wrong about discrimination.
Because of the political climate in the country, the worksheet was particularly explosive, since President Donald Trump was inaugurated as the next president of the United States, the K.K.K. has become more visible in the region to promote this discrimination against the black people. This is one of the few discriminatory assignments issued in a school this year as a result of the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
In 2012, a similar assignment was also issued Gwinnett County. The assignment asked the students to determine the number of beatings Fredrick had in a week if he had two beatings in a day. While this conversation must be elevated, it must also go deeper to help the students understand the dangers of discrimination. According to Mr. Cooper, the issue about class assignments for the African-American with more cultural sensitivity to avoid taking these exams.
People around the country are beginning to get their holiday decorations out of the attic. However, if you are a fan of everything in South Carolina, you already know about that. This is because Governor Henry McMaster and his family officially started the South Carolina holiday season by lighting the State House and the State Christmas tree during the 51st Annual Governor’s Carolighting.
At the ceremony, Governor McMaster stated, “Our family is eager to join South Carolinians from around the state in celebrating the beginning of the holiday season at our beautiful State House.” Governor McMaster spoke the truth. The State House certainly was beautiful. The pillars of the house were lit up in the festive colors of red and green. A choir was present to sing beloved Christmas carols. However, the most beautiful part of the evening was the lighting of the State House Christmas tree, a massive Concolor Fir decorated with blue, red, and green Christmas lights. A beautiful star also sat upon the top of the 35-foot-tall tree. The tree came from Pinetum Christmas Tree Farm in Sawnton, Maryland.
Governor Henry McMaster is 117th Governor of South Carolina, and he has served in office for less than a year. This was his very first year hosting the legendary event. Governor McMaster assumed office after Nikki Haley resigned the position in order to become the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Governor McMaster intends to run for the position in the 2018 election, and he has already won the public support of Donald Trump, who stated, “I’m so happy with the job he’s done…he’s doing some special job, but he does it with his heart.”
Admission to the event was free, and attendees were rewarded with a spectacular evening. If you missed it, be sure to attend next year!
From August 30th, 2017 to September 11th 2017, hurricane Irma ravaged its way westward through the Caribbean and up into South Carolina. This wasn’t the only hurricane that affected the United States. From August to October, other hurricanes formed. The names of these hurricanes were Harvey, Nate and Maria. Each hurricane affected different areas of the country.
Of course, these hurricanes brought a lot of destruction in their paths, including the displacement of people’s pets. Fortunately, a variety of animal welfare organizations from different states teamed up before, during and after the hurricanes to help displaced animals.
South Carolina Emergency Management Division worked in conjunction with the ASPCA, the Galveston County Animal Resource Center, Lee County Domestic Animal Services, Miami Dade Animal Services, the SPCA of Texas and Houston SPCA to create a strong, supportive network for animals in need. This network also included fosters, rescuers and adopters. A variety of shelters, organizations and agencies worked together to provide services and supplies to animals.
It is wise for pet owners to plan ahead and to stay informed. Pet owners should prepare go-kits for themselves and their pets. Pets should wear identification tags, and should be micro-chipped. Plans should be made as to how pets will be evacuated, and what types of carriers they will be evacuated in. Of course, if it comes between either a pet owner saving his own life or saving his pet’s life, he should save his own life. However, in general, pet owners should not leave their pets behind.
Making a plan as to what you will do for yourself and your pets during a natural disaster will save lives—both human and animal lives. People who rescue animals risk their lives, and pet owners should take this into consideration.
South Carolina had a much better college football season than many people expected. Coming into the year, some people wrongly assumed that the team would struggle to make a bowl game. However, South Carolina was able to secure wins over some of the best teams in the conference. This is a great sign for the future of the program.
Will Muschamp is doing a great job as the head coach. This year, it looks like South Carolina could be going to the Music City Bowl. This would be a major success for Will Muschamp and the players on the team.
One of the biggest reasons why South Carolina has done so well recently is the defense. Will Muschamp was a defensive coordinator before becoming a head coach. He is known as a person who is passionate about the game and someone who motivates players.
If the defense can play well, many people expect that South Carolina will win the game. The SEC usually faces the Big Ten in this bowl game. With all of the coaching changes across the country, South Carolina suddenly looks like one of the most stable programs in the SEC.
South Carolina is in much better shape than it was just a few years ago. Head coach Will Muschamp deserves a lot of credit for the work he has done.
With a great season behind them, South Carolina is now going to look forward to a bowl game. The Music City Bowl is one of the best bowls that South Carolina has been to recently. Getting a win in this bowl game would help the team build on a solid season. In addition, it would help the coaches recruit new players for the future.
For a long time, the South Carolina’s conservative politics has not catered for issues around class welfare and racism. Most people haven’t seen changes made to the public schools and universities despite the promises made to work on the issues facing such institutions. In fact, the political class has not adequately addressed the challenges of the brown and black people who are underserved by the K-12 education.
The legal and political negligence not only affects the schooling system but it has also made its way into different sectors of South Carolina’s economy. In fact, the poverty has invaded the lower states apart from a few coastal regions which are regarded as a tourist destination center. What most people are unaware is that most of south Carolinas public schools are considered successes or failures depending on the community they serve.
The schools that serve black students are considered bad while those dominated by white communities are framed as good. The reason why such a stereotype has existed for a long time is as a result of the political lie that the government is committed to overcoming the negative impacts of social inequality such as classism and racism. It goes without saying that most of the white students are more likely to have quality education compared to their black counterparts who are subjected to the basic coerces and teachers who are aren’t qualified.
The education system is also profoundly flawed especially when it comes to the standardizing tests offered to students. Such tests pave the way for political negligence since they are gender, class, and race biased. For years, South Carolina has spent millions of tax dollars in creating standards for new tests and report cards, but this has continued to demonize the schools that serve poor brown/black children. To achieve equality and fairness in the education sector, South Carolina needs a political goodwill to attend to the scar of racism and poverty within the state.
The University of South Carolina men’s basketball team went on the road last night to face the Florida International Golden Panthers. The Gamecocks were heavy favorites entering the game, and they proved why by dominating every aspect of the game on the way to a 78-61 victory.
Despite having the superior talent, South Carolina struggled early in the game. Whether it was the extended break for the Thanksgiving holiday or playing in an almost empty stadium, something was clearly not right with the Gamecocks. The Golden Panthers led most of the first half, and they actually held an eight-point lead with only five minutes left to play. The Gamecocks finally woke up and used a late push to finish the first half with a slim 38-36 lead.
South Carolina was a completely different team in the second half. They played suffocating defense and near flawless offense throughout most of the half. This great play helped the Gamecocks extend their lead to 22 points in less than seven minutes. Florida International tried to fight back, but the talent disparity was just too much to overcome.
The Gamecocks can thank their starting lineup for the victory last night. Chris Silva led the way with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Everyone else in the starting lineup scored at least seven points. The excellent output from the starting lineup was greatly needed because the entire South Carolina bench only managed to score four points against the Golden Panthers.
The South Carolina Gamecocks now have a 5-1 record, and the team is probably more talented than they were last year. A repeat of last year’s Final Four appearance may be unrealistic, but South Carolina clearly has the talent to beat almost any team in the country this year. The Gamecocks’ next game will take place on Thursday, November 30, when they host the Temple Owls.
