Do You Agree With Glenn Beck On The Student’s Frederick Douglass Essay? (POLL)

This morning, Glenn Beck was in rare form (if that’s possible!) and discussed the case of the 13-year-old girl who wrote a hard-hitting essay about education.

The girl, an African-American honors student, wrote the essay from the viewpoint of noted black leader Frederick Douglass.

Douglass was the leader of the freedom movement for slaves throughout the Civil War.

The girl wrote not from a racial, but opportunity standpoint, that the education system had failed.

She was writing from the standpoint of Douglass, who lamented (regardless of color or creed) the need to teach and educate all people.

She was severely chastised and ‘punished’ by the teachers in her school, who now label her a troublemaker.  Glenn spoke about Martin Luther King, who saw past color barriers and stressed that all people are equal.

Do you agree with Glenn that beyond racial overtones we are creating a society where intelligent free speech and debate are being crushed? Take our poll and let us know.
