TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! GOOGLE FIBER SHOWS US AN IMAGINARY STUDENT BODY FOR LINCOLN PREP!!!
This Google Fiber promo video presents an interesting look at Kansas City's Lincoln Prep.
Google Fiber - The Show Goes On
So much so that it inspired a COMMENT FROM A RATHER KICK-ASS TKC READER.
"TKC, watch this commercial from google fiber and tell me if these students reflect the real student population at Lincoln prep. Someone did NOT do their research."
Even better . . .
THIS AWESOME AND RATHER KICK-ASS TKC READER PUTS A BIT OF FACT CHECKING WORK INTO HIS COMMENT!!!
Do I guess crossing the digital divide applies to video as well.
"Here are some stats on Lincoln Prep: 63% black. 14% white. None of the kids in the commercial getting ready for the talent competition are Black.
All are white.
60% of Lincoln prep students are on free lunches.
All the homes in the commercial are middle to upper class."
Clearly, Google didn't get their video to match with reality and I guess it's important to kick them while their stock price is down even though they're kind enough to offer the service that runs this blog.
However . . . There's one thing Google did do RIGHT in this clip . . .
The juggling video features Kansas City performance artist extraordinaire Jason Divad.
