During Monday night's GOP debate in Myrtle Beach, SC, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich once again spoke on his much-derided plan to put school children to work. Sometimes it isn't what you say but how you say it. So Gingrich was careful to couch his controversial plan in more acceptable phrasing.

Gingrich insists that black kids don't need handouts from President Obama -- they need jobs. Gingrich says schoolchildren should be given janitorial jobs because, in his opinion, janitors in the NYC public school system earn way too much money.

The average annual salary for a NYC public school janitor is $80,000, compared to a teacher who earns $45,000 annually.

According to the NY Daily News, Gingrich argued the best thing public schools could do for students - particularly black students - was to give them a broom.

"Can't you see that this is viewed at a minimum as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans?" asked Fox News questioner Juan Williams, who is part Hispanic and black.

"No, I don't see that," Gingrich responded, with rousing applause from the majority white audience.

Gingrich countered that his own daughter's first job, at age 13, was janitorial work at the First Baptist Church in Carrollton, GA.

"New York City pays their janitors an absurd amount of money because of the union," Gingrich argued. "You could take one janitor and hire 30 some kids to work in the school for the price of one janitor, and those 30 kids would be a lot less likely to drop out," he said. "They would actually have money in their pocket. They'd learn to show up for work."

On Jan. 21, voters in South Carolina will vote to pick their choice for the Republican presidential candidate. Recent polls in the South show Gingrich running second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

    GOOD! Because the way I see it, janitors SHOULD be paid well to clean up people's spit, sht, vomit, and monthly cycles.

    Since we are in a DEPRESSION, and even college graduates can't get a job; I say that Newt has done us all a favor.

    GO OUT AND MAKE THAT 80K boys and girls! Let the jobless/homeless white people stand on ceremony and OCCUPY America.

    I once had a boss (white) who was always talking to me about how much money the clean-up crew made. He was always talking about how much gold the cleaning lady wore, and confirmed for me that they were making a very good salary.

    I thought to myself: Good for them! If I'm going to have to clean up behind some of the KNOWN animals that I worked with, they had better pay me WELL.

    I wasn't mad at them.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    F*ck that mutha...... Girl don't get me started this morning. The problem is unions and black folks ain't the cure for that sh*t nor are all black people lazy and unwilling to work. Not even most of them. And I'm still gonna have to do some research to determine that janitors make that much. Furthermore, maybe he should have addressed his rant to poor people, not black people in general. I don't even know why I'm getting my panties in a bunch of his corrupt behind when he doesn't have a snowball's chance in h*ll of winning his party's nomination let alone the election.

  • CookieMonsterZ

    I'm wondering what 'handouts' he is referring to that only black kids get. Last time I checked, welfare was available to ALL races, and even those who are not citizens here.

    And has he never heard of mentoring?? And how does he think he can un-employ nearly an entire worker's union? They're in place for a reason and they're protected from this sort of thing!

    End rant.

  • Ms.Fashion

    I feel he has the old slave master mind.

    Sounds like to me he wants to eliminate those jobs and give it to multiple kids that will divide that salary up to maybe about 2-5000 per kid annually. Then another group of people will lose their jobs and cannot provide for their family.

    Keeping a school clean is fine. But getting better books and school programs that promote mental development and comprehension is much better. I can teach my own child how to clean a floor dammit!!!!

    I agree OTB. This shyt is dumb az hell and will never fly. Even if students step into janitorial roles, what will be the limitations? Next they will be working in corporate America or on some assembly line for less pay. This is not China :nono: I completed 4 yrs of work study in high school at B of A. Why can't they fund productive programs that will be beneficial long term for these kids? What are they learning from cleaning toilets?

    That was my guess if the dollar amount was correct. They call Obama elitist (even though he has made way less money than all of them), but this idiot is trying to minimize the skills of highly trained professionals by insinuating children could do their job and they don't deserve to make an above living wage in New York. Does he know that even middle class people get rent assistance in New York because of the high rent? I had a coworker who made 100k as an executive assistant in New York. That's just the way it is there.

    They are talking about "blacks" because this has been the key talking point of white conservatives (even with KKK members of their group)since blacks were brought here as slaves.

    You will note, that even Herman Cain spoke this way when he was a contender. In order to prove that you are a dyed in the wool conservative, you have to stick to the talking points that are writen in stone for conservatives and NEVER CHANGE: Black folks. You have to make sure that you talk against black people like there have been NO CHANGES since the 1800s.

    Oh and in my honest opinion, janitors do NOT make too much money, especially school custodians. They literally are cleaning other people's vomit and sh!t, picking up after nasty kids who will drop and smear all kinds of mess cause they know they don't have to clean it up, killing bugs, dealing with hazardous chemicals, noxious smells, and doing the work that most people don't want to do... No they don't make too much money and neither do trash men. Yes, teachers should make way more than what they are making, they should be one of the highest paid professions, however, don't discount and put down what they are doing. And the argument is pointless anyway cause what he's basically promoting is making children work to get the education their entitled to, putting hard workers out of a job, for a fraction of the cost, in a job that can put those children at risk because of the industrial chemicals they use to clean schools and keep them sanitary. Hey, why don't we just bring back slavery too while he's at it

  • (((GLO-RAY!!!)))

    A quote: This isn't about labor economics. It's about respect, and the fact that [a] leading Republican presidential candidate doesn't have a spit's worth of it for manual labor. In his eyes, a janitor's job just doesn't mean much. It's so easy, a child could do it

    We won't go that far again. Too many Black folks are educated and outspoken and realize they have way more power than back then. For once, they're honestly way more scared of us than we are of them.

    The racism is becoming way more blatant though.

  • (((GLO-RAY!!!)))

    There are no "hand-outs." These are just HISTORICAL GOP talking points. Like I said before, in order to be a conservative candidate, you must profess to believeing in Conservative Propaganda Number One: Blacks are bad. They are shiftless, lazy, and drag down the economy.

    They have to preach this no matter how many Tom Delays' and Enrons there are out there. The bad economy is never the fault of the Smartest White Boy In The Room: Noooo. It's always those bad black people fault. and this is why nobody has anything.

Yes, you will find a lot of black folks in the county line but there are a lot of others with state health insurance, food stamps, rental assistance and everything else. We're the scapegoats but we aren't the majority no matter how you look at the statistics but racists ignore their contributions to the problems in this country and focus on us.

    OTB yepp this morning I went to McD's in the city (Manhattan) got the breakfast combo number 10. Steak and egg on a bagel with a hashbrown and small orange juice. That chit was $6.79 So these Janitors that he speaks of is definitely justified with earning that much. Although, I don't believe the Janitor is making anything close to that. Unless he is a part of the Facilities dept and cleans for the school as well. Then that figure would make a lot more sense. Newt is a undercover racist anyway.

    The Duggars are paid to keep on having babies, while a network or cable company PAYS them to do so. That is all they do. It is their only claim to fame. These bytches even have new cars and go on vacation to far away places.

    Tell me what white producer is going to do that for some blacks or Mexican people------and call that special?

    The stories I could tell...
    There is also a huge provider deficiency because medicaid and medicare pay so little. I've viewed claims where the bill was $30,000. We are only contracted to pay less than 1/4 of that. While there are charges that may be marked up, who wants to write off that much ALL the time? :no:

    I'm not downing the Duggars in any way. There are plenty of people who believe as they do....my point is they are praised while we are raked over the coals for more than 1 child and automatically assumed to be on public assistance. I work in medicaid all day and trust me when i tell you the benefits are not that great...and some people actually have to pay to be on medicaid. they have premiums and co-pays. A lot of people are on medicaid with jobs as well...again this won't be pointed out because this serves no purpose for the media's agenda.

    Of course, any "beliefs" that black or brown people have are thrown right out of the window, right? Our "beliefs" are even taken into consideration only because of our skin color or ethnicity.

    :cosign: I can't even begin to tell the amount of people who look at my kids and are shocked to realize that I don't have food stamps, no welfare, no Section 8 and yes I was actually still unemployed through the summer and paying out of pocket medical expenses, rent, groceries and bills outta unemployment benefits without state assistance. But because I'm black and have more kids than most people deem acceptable, I must be getting by off the county :no: But I could do it, because I don't have a car note and I keep most of my expenses relatively low, catch sales, etc but while people will look down on me they'll bypass Mary Jo with a brand new car, 6 kids, a husband with a job but at the grocery store buying all her family's food with food stamps and picking up her rx with a medical card

    The salaries in NY for city janitorial and sanitation jobs are ridiculous, but that is not the case in systems across the nation. Most janitors outside of govt maintenance teams aren't making that kind of money.
    When Newt starts suggesting that white kids pick up brooms and mops I'll believe his comments aren't racist.
    There is a reason why gvt lets schools in Black neighborhoods fail. Gvt wants to undereducate part of the population so there will always be a group that can only aspire to clean toilets, raise other people's children, and drive other people's cars.

    Conservatives like Herman Cain help to keep this type of racism current. The first thing he did was blast black people to show whose pocket he is in. This is what you have to do to be a "paid" conservative.

    Anyway, this is what America was founded on, and many people are still very hungry for racism on the American menu. It's historical, and many people don't want it to end. It's as American as apple pie.

    @H-town and Glo, If I could keep a houseplant alive I would look into growing vegetable and herbs (not the smoking kind :lol: ) but my green thumb is black unfortunately but I get a lot of my fruits and veggies from Farmer's market whenever I can because it's actually cheaper and the stuff is healthier since most of the people who sell there don't have huge farms that use lots of pesticides and all that.

I also try to avoid fast food when I can (although if I get tired or am working too many hours I'm not above ordering pizza) and we only eat out on special occasions.

    @Glo, I'm not anti-fast food I just think it should be done in serious moderation which is why I do let them go on occasion but not often. But I'm a firm believer that if you deny kids certain things, they will crave them when they get older, so I let my kids eat it, I let them eat sweets, I let them have lazy days but I also let them see what happens if they have too much. That way they can still enjoy it every so often, but also know that it can cause serious problems too. And as a result, my girls love salads, fruits and vegetables over candy and junk and my son, even though he's picky, I fill him up on stuff that he likes but that I make from scratch (and sometimes hide veggies/fruit in) so that he can still be healthy

The girls will eat any fruit/veggie you hand them, the boy eats apples and oranges only so I make sure to keep them in stock for him. I'm working with him though and I won't cook a separate meal so he has to at least eat half of whatever I cook and if he truly hates it, than I'll let him eat a sandwich but I'm slowly broadening his tastes. He refuses to eat honey though and I can't do agave so I only use real sugar but I don't put it in everything and use just enough

    Yso I have NOT given up pop, I just forced my children to but when I’m at work or they’re not around it’s me and my that’s one thing I don’t think I can give that up or at least I don’t want to

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    when you find out what pop does to you and your children, you will stop drinking it. Dr. Mercola has an article on this too. It's very frightening. Did you know that the military uses "pop" as a cleaner? They use it to break down the grease and hardened on food before scouring the kitchen. Also, mechanics use "pop" to desolve the rust on screws inside cars.

    Cali & Ms.E, I still wear it to bed :rofl:

    & oh yeah, I used to rock the panty girdle in grammar school :lol: them joints used to hold what little I had in place :rofl:

    I would bet money that the young ladies don't wear those today :coffee:

    @ TY - I'm sorry bew! I thought everyone knew! It's awesome. I use it in my hair and you don't have to use but a "panch!" And it smells awesome.

    Floppy, yes we know that Coke can remove rust, but they didn't say Pepsi could though :lol: Just kidding, you're right about the pop, but it just be calling me #pookie

    What ya'll talkin about?

  • Ms. Everything

    Thanks @Yall and Tatted.. going to look now

    @Glo trust me I know all the bad on pop (like the fact that it dissolves battery acid) but I can't give it up (I could but I just really don't want to) so I simply cut it out of kids diet completely and hide my drinking of it from them. I figure it's not the worst vice I can have :shrugs: And I was raised on it (from the bottle, literally) I just thank God I never ended up with rotten teeth or bad skin

  • http://youtu.be/3lesVb_6MBs YSoSrs

    :hugs: @YALL <---A real fake one.

    I don't let my kids have pop and they rarely drink juice unless it's 100%. They rarely eat candy but I do keep things like granola bars and graham/animal crackers in the snack cabinet and I keep raisins and apples and oranges around too. I eat what I want though cause I'm a bad role model and there's no one around to make me do better. :lol:

    The little one is still picky and he hasn't had dinner two nights in a row just this week because he didn't want to even taste what I made (baked pork chops, mashed taters and green beans). The oldest one will eat anything so the only problem I have with him is his little ass eating like a grown man. :lol:

    -------------------------------------

    If it's "fizzy" drinks you want, there are those without all of the rotten ingredients that drinks like Coke and Pepsi have. Oprah recently had an article on this in her magazine. I have to look it up, but she swears by it. It's fizzly without all of Satan's and the U.S. goverment's death mixtures in it.

    In my house, if I didn't eat, my mother would say something along the lines of "if you don't want to eat this shatt, then go eat shatt" :hahaha: or something like that.

    I learned to eat what she served :lol:

    -----------
    :yes: Cali, that was Candi :rofl:

  • caligirl

    GOOD! Because the way I see it, janitors SHOULD be paid well to clean up people’s spit, sht, vomit, and monthly cycles.
    Since we are in a DEPRESSION, and even college graduates can’t get a job; I say that Newt has done us all a favor.
    GO OUT AND MAKE THAT 80K boys and girls! Let the jobless/homeless white people stand on ceremony and OCCUPY America.

    ________________________

    Cosign* I agree! I don't see what the problem is. They don't have to make a career out of being a janitor. They can do this while going to school or college. Shoot if I ever get laid off you better believe I wouldn't hesitate to take that job, until I get on my feet.
