THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT

From ROD ONLINE:

A New York City student will be allowed to deliver a speech about same-sex marriage after all. Queens fifth grader Kameron Slade worked on the award-winning speech with his mother and his teacher. On Wednesday, the principal said he should write another speech or be removed from the contest. She said that people have different opinions on it and that some parents may not want their children to learn about this type of topic. So, instead, he delivered a speech Friday about animal cruelty. "I thought my original speech was really gonna win. I was very confident in it," the student told CBS New York.

However, New York City Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced that Kameron Slade will deliver his speech at a special assembly of fifth graders on Monday.

For giving us hope, for same "same gender" in stead of "same sex," for just getting it and for being able to say the word "orientation," so perfectly, at his young age, Kameron Slade (the second black president of the United States?) is OCICBW...'s

  1. Kid’s a star.

    My only disagreement is w/ this: “the second black president of the United States?”

    There are so many outstanding African-Americans at or near Presidential-qualification (esp. among African-American women!), that I hope Young Kameron is 4th or 5th at EARLIEST! 😉
