A father’s advice: ‘School is free — get some education’

We yield the floor here at Blaska Policy Werkes to Mr. C. Watson, who tells Blaska for Safer Schools: “As a black man and a father I try to get them to understand school is free — get some education and learn how to become a citizen not just someone black being told by friends that the wrong way is the right way! Keep in touch! ✌🏾

So I drive for the city in different capacities and find myself reaching out to children on a daily basis. First things first. My 12- and 21-year old daughters have never had anyone repeat this about them at any time. IT IS YOUR JOB AS A PARENT TO MAKE SURE OF IT!

Teachers come to school to help your children to learn with the tools YOU’RE supposed to give them at home.

Easy to start a career in Madison

Here’s my problem with Madison: black people like myself have come here for whatever reason, your children are very well taken care of, women are very well taken care of, it’s is so easy to get a job or start a career here that going back to Chicago or raising my children there wasn’t an option. I read a couple comments about people not knowing what these kids go thru, but that doesn’t define you just like people swear cops are killing black people in Madison when 1 in 20 years fighting with the police [that] has happened. There are plenty of places to live … only those who will remain blind [will] make it a racial issue.

So I also work with the MMSD and I one day I witnessed a group of girls by a library walk past every business, open every door, yell and throw things into each door. I watched boys stand at a light and throw things at cars and so much more. I won’t even point out race, but I’ll say these kids were probably middle school and there’s a fight at the library almost every week.

‘Parents, take responsibility’

Instead of some of the rhetoric here…it would be nice to see parents take responsibility, and if your child’s not acting out this way don’t take up for kids because they’re black and make excuses…this is why the problem exists because you’re telling them it’s ok with your words and actions.

I can’t tell we have black leaders because you can ignore what’s really going on and blame others because of race. I’m not rich and I’m not poor, but I’m not going to allow my children or any children I come in contact believe that there’s no success because you’re black, most of you are teaching hopelessness and don’t even realize it.

There’s nothing we can’t achieve

Since you think it’s ok to give children excuses, be my guest; it’s just more examples for to teach my girls how not to be. Why is the boys and girls club just a hangout spot? If children were taught things other that throwing them a ball because you are just there to collect a paycheck isn’t helping not one of these children!

There’s not one thing a black man or woman can’t do in Dane county. For me personally there’s nothing you’re going to stop me from doing!

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Thank you, sir. There are many folks like C. Watson here in Madison. We could hear them if others weren’t making so much commotion.

    Great message from a involved, strong, responsible father.

    Not sure about the dig at the boys/girls club however because their website indicates they are much more than hanging out playing b-ball.

      Let’s say someone, we’ll call him Knob, regularly decries another’s posts as gibberish.

      This other’s comments, while not perfect (perfection not being a human attribute), are arguably well-above average in spelling, grammar, punctuation, word usage, and sentence structure; all necessary adjuncts to proper communication.

      Yet in nearly the same breath, Knob laughably sings praises to another poster’s spectacularly regular butchering of nearly all aspects of the English language as positively Swiftian.

      Now THAT’S irony, with a heapin’ helpin’ of hypocrisy, am I right?
