The essay in its entirety:

On the evening of December Rosa Parks decided that she was going to sit in the white people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. During this time blacks had to give up there seats to whites when more whites got on the bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Her and the bus driver began to talk and the conversation went like this. "Let me have those front seats" said the driver. She didn't get up and told the driver that she was tired of giving her seat to white people. "I'm going to have you arrested," said the driver. "You may do that," Rosa Parks responded. Two white policemen came in and Rosa Parks asked them "why do you all push us around?" The police officer replied and said "I don't know, but the law is the law and you're under arrest.

2 Just like the "Throw the Jews into the ovens Law"... The police that have sworn to serve and protect and to defend the constitution,will "enforce the law".

Do you think it will be any different when the go door to door with their SWAT Brigades to collect your "illegal weapons"? Until Obamas Nazis are met with force and they start losing, they will gleefully "enforce the law".

3 Wow, just WOW. And I thought the dumbing down of the education system was bad in Australia. No wonder so many university "graduates" end up asking "do you want fries with that?"

4 This is what you fought for Rosa.

5 Actually, this is an A- report. This third grader did a lot of work on it, and should be commended...

6 I'd be interested to see the essay question. Perhaps the instructions said to write an incoherent narrative from the viewpoint of a civil rights pioneer.

7 Look at the bright side: They learned how to use the spell-checker.

8 Is this a math problem?

9 As a teacher, I see this all the time. My middle schoolers can't write or spell. I don't teach English, but I do all I can. It started when some idiot in education decided that teaching grammar wasn't important...the rest is downhill from there.

10 MLK Jr., if he was alive to see his people today, would be crying and slinging snot bigtime over what they have become. I'm no fan of his but Jackson, Sharpton and etc ain't worthy to scrap the birdshite off his tombstone.

11 At least this college student understands English and can write in somewhat-complete sentences. I can't tell you how many students at my college I've encountered that not only have problems writing in any coherent manner, but also have issues understanding what my department chair calls "middle class language." To paraphrase Jack Nicholson as the Joker, "my 'profession' needs an enema."

12 my humble opinion is that we should end all intercolligiate sports, intra mural sports is fine. but the expense the time the lack of learning among the atheletes is deplorable.

13 That terrible essay left out the essential details like how the bus driver used the n-word eight times and lashed Rosa with a whip and how the policemen were dressed in white hoods and everyone on the bus cheered and they were going to hang her from an oak tree before MLK rode in on a horse and smote the crowd with his sorcery and brought Justice unto the municipal transportation lines. That's the way i learnt it at SUNY, New Paltz.

14 It's actually quite a brilliant essay. When he says 'black people had to give up there seats, he was making a stand by implying, "you can't force me to spell it 't-h-e-i-r', cracker!"

Just as powerful as what Rosa Parks did. A plus!

15 I guess that degree in "Black Studies' preps you for a career in the NBA, NFL or MCD's.

16 And I will bet you that Mrs. Parks would know when you have to use "their" and when "there".

17 MLK was a Uncle Tom by today's standards. And Not the good Uncle Tom.

18 Just remember if college football goes so do the cheerleaders and their scholarships

19 Obviously a gifted student. I was doing more
complicated essays in third grade back in 1963.

One note on the Rosa Parks story: When the
buses were run by for profit companies, they
never discriminated. It was only after Democrats
imposed segregation laws and city owned bus lines,
that this practice began.

A valid point. The reply is "what about the privately owned segregated lunch counters, ha?"
Many were, indeed, definitely racist in outlook and behavior. But, not all. Once again, the eateries were segregated BY LAW. These bad laws were overturned and, in part, replaced with different bad laws.

21 I found the paper that got the High Distinction.

One day Sister Rosa decided that she was going to sit
in the rich white privileged people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Sister Rosa refused to give up her seat to the man, the 1% oppressor of all the little people. No way she said. I'm Occupying here and no totalitarian fascist is going to move me on, not while I've got this bomb strapped to me.
Two white policemen came in and Sister Rosa called her civil liberties lawyer and explained they wanted to arrest her for being black. She never mentioned the bomb but asked them "why do
you white honky crackers all push us around?" The police officers were arrested for racist hate crimes and sent for re-education at a camp

22 "Con-ver-sa-tion," four syllables. Football players should not try to use big words they do not understand because i makes them sound photosynthesis.

23 Perhaps a little short.

24 This essay should get the Al Sharpton "Keep the HATE alive!!" Award for Brevity, and is a solid B+.......

25 Proper grammar, spelling and punctuation would've earned an A++, then?
