Does Reince Priebus think black people just shut up and go to the charter school they are told to?

First I hope nobody thinks I am making light of the struggles of the black community and I acknowledge that despite inroads there is still a long way to go.

School choice is a hot button topic right now and many of their supporters are saying it is the next civil rights moment, Rand Paul, Jeb bush and Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, all say school choice is a civil rights issue and they are fighting tooth and nail for expanded school choice.

However the NAACP isn’t. They in fact are resolute against the school choice movement.

This despite the fact we all know there were inequities with public schools for generations and things still aren’t where they should be. They look at charter school schools and see a back door to segregation. They look at charter schools and see mercenaries trying to profit off their kids and they look at charter schools and see that they are providing an inferior product too.  

They obviously don’t understand that Paul, Bush, Priebus and the rest of the school choice movement say that they are fighting for them, or maybe they know what they are really fighting for and it isn't them.  

The solution is to fix the problems in our public schools, not to outsource our kids futures to what Priebus is selling.
