If nobody is there to correct you, you'll continue to do the wrong thing


Agreed.
I remember getting popped in the mouth for saying my bad instead of I'm sorry or I apologize.

yes, little things like may I have, I'm sorry, yes (insert name)  as opposed to  let me get a, my bad, yeah etc....
 
Pronunciations, grammar, manners, and correct usage all matter

I didn't read all of the comments but was it said that kids from single family households are usually on the same academic level as one from dual parent homes?
 
I'm talking about the rule, not the exception..

And while what he said was very demoralizing as well as very myopic, I will say that the Black American community is still, in large part, very oriented around survival instead of success.
 
Even at the collegiate level, the goal of too many Black students is to graduate, instead of graduating with honors, preparing for graduate school and/or landing a job after graduation.

Aunt B always provides profundity.  Do you think it's bc many are first generation so just getting through is an accomplishment? Why do those at the collegiate level just want to get out? Disillusion?
 
Aww thanks. There are a number of factors, and yes, being first in family without having a parent or older family member to turn to for guidance can be very daunting. Many of our students don't know the appropriate ways to navigate college and often don't ask for help.
 
I was writing this and someone came in spilling major tea. I will edit this once I get my mind clear.

my brother and I were talking about this and how even if you tell a student what to do  they still will not follow through

go to xyz's office...they go, he/she is not there and they give up

go to this website....they get distracted or only go on once and never go on again

I want to know why they don't follow through

Everyone should watch the documentary "Waiting for Superman." It explains perfectly why I think the OP is a bullsh*t copout that ignores the real issues. 

I might come back later and expound on this, but as of right now, my brain is tired and Im about to take a nap. 

ETA: It's on Netflix
