Obama Tells Schools Not to Punish Black Students Equally

President Obama has thrown himself into America’s schools, specifically their disciplinary practices. You see, an unfortunate fact about our society today is that African Americans commit more than their share of crime, and are also much more likely to misbehave as children in school. Even more unfortunate is how Obama has stepped forward to announce that this isn’t fair, and to fix it schools should focus more on punishing other races to “even out the playing field,” so to speak. Think I’m exaggerating? Think again:

 

“African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,”  Because of those causes, the report suggests, “over a third of African American students do not graduate from high school on time with a regular high school diploma, and only four percent of African American high school graduates interested in college are college-ready across a range of subjects.”

 

I don’t know about Obama’s high school experiences, but where I went to class it sure seemed like all of the students had access to the same resources. It’s not like our teachers had office hours only for the white kids, or that they checked your skin at the door to the library. That didn’t stop president Obama from issuing an executive order to establish a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.”

 

So, is this going to work kind of like affirmative action? If a little boy bullies another, and you’ve met the race quota for that month, he just gets a pass? That’s exactly what it means, according to Bader, a former official in the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights:

 

“What this means is that whites and Asians will get suspended for things that blacks don’t get suspended for,”

 

 

What’s more, doesn’t it seem like a poor time to plant your flag in the “furthering governmental bureaucracy” camp? Evidently not, and Roger Clegg, the president of the Center for Equal Opportunity pointed this out:

 

“It is too bad that the president has chosen to set up a new bureaucracy with a focus on one particular racial group, to the exclusion of all others,” [...]  “A disproportionate share of crimes are committed by African Americans, and they are disproportionately likely to misbehave in school… [because] more than 7 out of 10 African Americans (72.5 percent) are born out of wedlock… versus fewer than 3 out of 10 whites,” [...] ” you won’t see it mentioned in the Executive Order… there is an obvious connection between these [marriage] numbers and how each group is doing educationally, economically, criminally,”

 

In case you were wondering, this movement isn’t new. In fact, Maryland passed legislation as recently as July 24th that required that disciplinary action against students was to be enforced equally and proportionally, regardless of the actions by students of the different races: “the state’s 24 school systems track data to ensure that minority and special education students are not unduly affected by suspensions, expulsions and other disciplinary measures,” said a July 25 Washington Post report. “Disparities would have to be reduced within a year and eliminated within three years,”

 

Even Attorney General Eric Holder has thrown his support behind the racist legislation, stating that the situation as it stands is ‘unacceptable’.

 

“we’ve often seen that students of color, students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and students with special needs are disproportionately likely to be suspended or expelled.” [...] “This is, quite simply, unacceptable. … These unnecessary and destructive policies must be changed,”

 

For the record, those destructive policies he is referring to are the ones that punish students based on their behavior alone. Clearly, according to Mr. Holder, the color of one’s skin determines how often you will commit crimes. Nice.

    I think it is time to segregate the schools again,keep black kids in black schools and white kids in white schools,oh yeah,the white schools can have the asians and the black schools can have the hispanics

    ovomit is full of crap.

    He really is pushing this racial thing! And yeah, it is up to the child in school if he wants to learn or just be a menace to society. And if the black students are involved in crimes, etc, it is their choice! No one MAKES them do anything they don’t want to do, they will tell you that! There have been many kids grow up in bad areas that turned out to be something in society…doctors, lawyers, etc….IT IS ALL A CHOICE! QUIT BLAMING EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING ELSE! There will be one day when EVERYONE will have to account for only themselves and won’t be able to blame anyone else…Judgment Day!

    When will the racism based legislation stop? The overuse off the race card is going to lose its value sooner or later. The problem is that most people do not truly understand the use and application of statistical data. With that said, I believe the education of all races needs to be equal all across the board. Cutting corners and giving a group of people an easy way out does nothing but hurt the very people they are trying to help.

    I certainly agree that black students should receive the same preferential treatment as Travon Martin. If stolen property is found in their possession, just say it was found. If they have burglary tools, just overlook it. If they are involved in beating up others, they’re just being boys. If they want ‘lean’, they are just inquisitive. All this will ensure they grow up to be Rhodes Scholars!

    the reason black students lack access to safe schools is because they schools become unsafe when blacks start populating them and no access to good teachers and principals, is because decent teachers and principles don’t want to risk their lives simply by reporting to their job every day and teaching those who don’t want to learn

    This is when White America rises up! It is absolutely time this ridiculous pandering of blacks and
    discrimination against whites STOP! Race baiting politicians act as thou all blacks grew up in third world countries. They grew up right here in America with more opportunities than whites, attend the same public schools our children attend, that we and their parents attended. There are more deprived
    whites than blacks because our government has been financially assisting blacks thru programs not even available to whites for a century. By allowing this kind of blatant racism to continue, we accept it. Let’s not accept any more chipping away of rights for whites.

  • Geneva Phoenix

    Racist legislation will not stop until whites stop it. We all need to call our representatives and demand that this Executive Order be overturned. Then we must stop Affirmative Action. All this should be possible if we call, write letters, get involved at the source. If this approach is not successful, then whites need to organize, ie form foundations, organizations, meet at Churches like the blacks did…..but we must stop it now. Blacks, with the help of Muslim Brohd, Arab money, want to make whites their slaves. And guess what, that is not far from being a reality. Who works and who reaps the most benefits?
