Dumbing Down for Black Kids

This reads like a parody, but it is apparently real: black high schools ("urban") are transforming their debate teams into "hip hop" debate teams. Are black kids too stupid to sit still and listen to and read facts and logic, to comprehend it, and to compose and present their own, without music and rhymes? I know the answer with 100% certainty: No, black kids don't require "jive talk" in order to understand ANYTHING, and they can communicate without jive talk. Just raise the standards, and they will meet them.
