If you don’t know Ty Smith you should. He can be heard on Cities 92.9 at 3:00pm on Saturdays.
We spoke twice at the District 87 School Board meeting. We has a fascinating story who most people would think should be just another Chicago poor black kid statistic. He refused to accept the narrative that he was not able to succeed. Ty relates his story in Part 1.
Part 2 proves Ty is a voice of common sense and reason. At one point he is responded to a liberal retired teacher who claimed white privilege got her out of a speed ticket. Ty’s response is epic. Of course the kids didn’t want to hear Ty’s claims that he was never oppressed by whites or any other color.
