An Entertainment Industry Excuse Thread for Underachieving
28 August 2018 | by garrickrespressSee all my reviews

This show is a disgrace! I am shocked Starz would support the production of this chaos. What kind of results does any expect when one group has an average ACT score of 27 while the other has an average score of 19. To blame the high school, high school teachers and place race as the predominant reason is disingenuous. The show is nothing short of a lie. The Black academic leaders who are allowing these students to believe that race, not their work ethic drives their academic challenges should be ashamed of themselves. This is shameful. Our community should be ashamed of this excuse thread. We never hear anyone saying work harder. Malcolm X found his voice in Chicago. This group of administrators, teachers, parents and students appear to be seeking rewards without putting in the necessary work. Sad.
