Racist Teachers Making Minorities Dumb

Racist Teachers Making Minorities Dumb

Teachers may be harming minority students by holding back on criticisms.

Since the “political correctness” disease struck the United States in the 1990s Americans on the whole have become petrified of saying or doing anything that could be misconstrued as callous, or worse, racist.

Some would argue that the over-sensitization of the Nation is leading to decay of heritage and cultural pride along with intelligence as people are indoctrinated with the idea from their earliest education that every person is the same regardless of background. Of course, the people who would dare to make such an argument would be promptly flagged as callous or racist by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

A new report from Rutgers University in Newark, N.J., will likely be overlooked by hate watchers because it illustrates how the very way of thinking lauded by the oversensitive is dumbing down the populations they are so intent on helping to succeed.

A study currently published in the Journal of Educational Psychology shows, through a phenomenon dubbed “positive bias,” how affirmative action policies hold back minority youth and lead to their dependence on similar policies to succeed throughout life. Psychology professor Kent D. Harber indicates in the study that public school teachers under-challenge minority students by providing them more positive feedback than they give to white students even when they deserve equal merit.

Harber used 113 white middle school and high school teachers in two public school districts located in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tri-State area, one middle class and white, and the other more working class and racially mixed, to conduct his study. The researcher had the white teachers read poorly written essays that they believed were written by either white, black or Latino students and give feedback to be sent directly to the student.

All of the essays were actually developed by Harber, but he found that when the teachers believed him to be a black or Latino student he got more positive feedback than when they thought he was a white student despite the work being of equally poor quality. This racism to avoid being called a racist is holding back the minority students.

“The social implications of these results are important; many minority students might not be getting input from instructors that stimulates intellectual growth and fosters achievement. Some education scholars believe that minorities under-perform because they are insufficiently challenged—the ‘bigotry of lowered expectations,’ in popular parlance,” Harber explains. “The JEP study indicates one important way that this insufficient challenge might occur: in positively biased feedback.”

Harber believes the study’s findings have implications not only for educational systems in the U.S. but also for businesses, and in fact any organization where performance appraisals and feedback are crucial tools for training and development.

While the study shows that Americans would be better off without the fear created by oversensitive political correctness, the concept may be so rooted in the Nation’s society at this point that it is impossible to remove.

Russian media outlet RT poked fun at Americans’ oversensitivity to everything in the following broadcast from earlier this week:

Remember, you have freedom of speech and of thought in the United States as long as you avoid criticisms—even constructive—of any being that could be considered a minority or weaker than yourself, and any utterance that could be misconstrued by any person as offensive. Good luck.

    I have taught college writing for years and have seen first hand how instructors of color allow students of color, who do have not learned the skills necessary to pass at a higher level of instruction to progress to the next level of classes. Most of the students I have spoken with about this would prefer to learn what was necessary. I am a dinosaur who tells students what they have to do to actually succeed. Our educational system is geared to mediocrity and the ultimate failure of the student’s ability to think critically and creatively.

    • 45caliber

      And people wonder why our students aren’t as good as those of other nations.

      Treating others in a condecending manner, based on racial stereotyping is racist. Pure and simple. All should be treated the same, with no variance for race or sex. To allow unsatisfactory and below par activities to be allowed for some on the basis of race, is an act of superiority by those allowing those actions without reprecussion. Those same individuals with dual standards, would not allow their own children to settle in an area of mediocrity that they now condemn others to a lifetime of failure. Pigmentation and the amount of melanin one has, has no role in the value of that person(s). One own’s personhood, the role of family, community and the greater culture around oneself, is the determining feature as to the character of that individual. Shame on those that use dual standards and low expectations on those of color, by those “white” bigots with a haute superiority attitude.

        “Shane,”

        AT MANY CAUCASIAN UNIVERSITIES – ESPECIALLY, IN THE SOUTH – THE NEGRO FACULTY POPULATION [AT LEAST, DURING THE EIGHTIES] WAS LESS THAN, FIVE PERCENT. THEREFORE, THE REPERCUSSIONS YOU SPOKE OF ARE NOT PRACTICAL. NEGRO PROFESSORS BELIEVE THEY HAVE A DUTY – AS NEGROES – TO PRACTICE “OUTREACH” FOR NEGRO STUDENTS AT A CAUCASIAN UNIVERSITY. IF SOMEONE CHALLENGES THIS PRACTICE, OF COURSE, RACISM WILL BE SCREAMED.

      Jim, ain’t that a royal biche? I could be wrong, but I’m inclined to posit that “affirmative action” – proffered as a form of reparations – has been a clear example of what’s so wrong with ‘public education’ when it comes to eddyacayshun. When “educators” DARE to let their students become thin-skinned, avoid learning and somehow become functional citizens, we really shouldn’t be surprised to accept the FACT that Amerika now rates as #15 in the world [we used to be #1]. So much for teacher unions, Congress, social justice and insanity in the form of ‘being all you can be’ – ala utopian stupidity.

        “Brad,”

        I LIKE YOUR COMMENTS. HOWEVER, I HAVE NOT HEARD OF A LAW WHICH STATES SPECIFIC CORPORATIONS CAN ONLY HIRE APPLICANTS WITH DEGREES SPECIFIC TO THOSE CORPORATIONS’ EXPERTISE. IN MEMPHIS, FedEx ( A LOGISTICS/TRANSPORTATION COMPANY) WILL HIRE “WHITE-COLLAR” APPLICANTS WITH A-N-Y TYPE OF BACHELOR DEGREE (ART, FRENCH, ETC.). ALTHOUGH AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS TO BLAME, I SEE NO REASON WHY CORPORATIONS CAN NOT ONLY HIRE THOSE WITH INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC DEGREES – THEREBY, IMPROVING THE TALENT OF THAT CORPORATION.

      To Jim:
      Well Jim, it goes both ways. You see when i was in high school , which was 30 something odd years ago, the white teachers were giving white students grades they didn’t deserve. When those white students got to college, they failed miserably. The point i’m trying to get across is that we, as a nation, need to make all students do their work. In addition, grade point averages should actually be required to be higher in order to get into college facilities. By doing this, it will give students the intiative along with incentive to study harder. This solution will solve our nation’s problems. Thanks!!

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Tony,”

        SIR, IT IS NOT MY GOAL TO OPPOSE YOU; I HOPE YOU BELIEVE ME.

        ON ITS FACE, I LIKE YOUR COMMENTS. HOWEVER, IN THE NEGRO COMMUNITY, MANY NEGRO MALES GO TO COLLEGE VIA ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS. WE ALL KNOW IF A YOUNG-NEGRO MALE IS A GREAT ATHLETE, HIS GRADES WILL BE “HANDLED.” THE BEST EXAMPLE I KNOW IS THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH RETIRED-NFL PLAYERS WHO HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS. IF THOSE ATHLETES HAD LEARNED SOMETHING IN SCHOOL, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE “BLOWN” THEIR NFL SALARIES ON WOMEN, DRUGS, ETC. “Tony,” FOR THE MOST PART, THIS SITUATION DOES NOT OCCUR IN THE CAUCASIAN COMMUNITY.

      5/10/12, Observe a return of slavery. Only this time there will be nowhere to go; nowhere to run. These people will be assigned the most menial of tasks & will be the most expendable. Black people hate my guts, straight-up. Just my disdain for BO triggers a red flag w/many. I’ve been saying this for years: 2 more generations of decadence & there won’t be enough of [us] to worry about.

      “Jim,”

      YOU ARE ON POINT. I USED TO BE A GRADUATE-TEACHING ASSISTANT DURING MY MASTER OF MUSIC PROGRAM. IT SEEMS THE FACULTY-SPONSOR OF “Black Student Unions” AT CAUCASIAN UNIVERSITIES IS THE “FOCAL-POINT” PERSON FOR ALL NEGRO STUDENTS ON CAMPUS. THIS FACULTY MEMBER IS ALSO USUALLY THE SPONSOR OF THE “black” FRATERNITY OR SORORITY.

      AS AN UNDERGRADUATE AT, Arkansas State University, I TOOK A COURSE IN “Black History.” THE FINAL PROJECT FOR THIS COURSE WAS A SO-CALLED, “RESEARCH PAPER” AND AN IN-CLASS ORAL PRESENTATION. NOT TRYING TO “BRAG,” BUT, I WAS THE ONLY STUDENT WHO HAD A COLLEGE-LEVEL FINAL PROJECT. THE OTHER STUDENTS HAD “SEVENTH-GRADE BOOK REPORTS.” THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER, THE PROFESSOR [A NEGRO MALE] AND STUDENTS [ALL NEGROES] SAT IN A CIRCLE. FOR EVERY CLASS MEETING WE HAD A “RAP SESSION” ON TOPICS THE NEGRO STUDENTS CARED ABOUT.

      MY POINT, “Jim,” IS YES – NEGRO PROFESSORS “BABY” NEGRO STUDENTS. THESE SAME STUDENTS WHO WROTE “BOOK REPORTS” FOR THE “Black History” COURSE, WERE UNABLE – FOR THE MOST PART – TO WRITE THE “REAL” RESEARCH PAPER REQUIRED FOR “Freshman English,” WHICH WAS USUALLY TAUGHT BY A CAUCASIAN PROFESSOR. NEGRO PARENTS AND THEIR COLLEGE-BOUND CHILDREN SEEM TO BELIEVE COLLEGES HAVE GUIDANCE COUNSELORS LIKE, HIGH SCHOOLS. IF A NEGRO STUDENT CAN NOT “CUT IT” IN COLLEGE, THERE IS NO “BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING” WHICH ALLOWS PARENTS TO DEMAND THE “HEADS” OF TEACHERS WHO SO-CALL “GIVE” STUDENTS “Ds” AND “Fs.” IF SOMEONE IS PAYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR YOU TO GO TO COLLEGE, IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE PASSING GRADES. THERE ARE NO “CRUTCHES” (LIKE, GUIDANCE COUNSELORS) IN COLLEGE.

    Petrified, I’M NOT. Political Correctness has gone way beyond being sensible. I know of 7th graders who cannot read at 4th grade level. How did this happen… Students, regardless of earning grades/abilities have been promoted to the next grade. Reason, the ‘system’ doesn’t want older students mingled with younger students. It would be “too embarrassing” for the failed students. Therefore, we get students who will no doubt drop out of school at age 16~because they find school work too difficult. The school system worked rather well until Federal Government stuck their noses into the education of our youth. Now we have demands on teachers to indoctrinate students – sex education. This begins at lower levels. It’s all in the heading of “tolerance and acceptability’ that students must learn about sexual behaviors. Excuse me, but homosexual/lesbian behaviors are the parents’ responsibility and not the Federal Government’s demands. I think Parents still raise their children!

    • 45caliber

      When my children were in gradeschool, the school system they were attending was graduating students with 3rd grade education. “Up and OUT!” The offical position was that all kids deserved a graduation certificate for attending 12 years (actually 13) of school regardless of what they might not know. Further, the students were only promised that many school years so it cost the school to keep them longer. Actually, I think part of the reason was that the state had pressure on all schools to graduate as many students as possible regardless of their qualifications.

      Now many businesses require a couple of years of college before they will even hire a laboror simply to make sure the person can read and do simple math. They no longer trust the high school diplomas to show proof of basic education.

      I AGREE. BUT, INNER-CITY SCHOOLS FEEL A NEED FOR ON-CAMPUS SEX EDUCATION BECAUSE STUDENTS ARE HAVING SEX ON CAMPUS. MANY MONTHS AGO, THERE WAS A YouTube VIDEO OF TWO STUDENTS ENGAGED IN ORAL SEX ON CAMPUS PROPERTY. [The school was rumored to be a Memphis school; subsequent investigation proved the school was elsewhere]. RECENTLY, MEMPHIS HAD AN “OUTREACH” CAMPAIGN FOR TEENAGE FEMALES FROM A PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD WHO WERE BECOMING PREGNANT IN LARGE NUMBERS.

    The dangers of political correctness and the self-esteem movement have lasting effects on the health and prosperity of our society.

    Allowing ANY medical candidates, for example, to pass without full knowlege of their subjects leads to malpractice and inferior diagnoses/prognoses. Failure rates amongst affirmative action students in universities were once the norm, but those stats have probably changed since colleges have become mills.

    Not everyone is equal in terms of talents, abilities, or IQ. And the liberal canard that environment is almost the sole determinant of IQ has led to the misbegotten position that you can cure any problem if you throw enough money at it.

    Culturally biased questions were weeded out of IQ tests long ago, but still show that the average IQ of the African American population is 15 points lower than their white counterparts. This is not a racist statement by any means; it is an empirically proven fact.

    • 45caliber

      I agree. I saw a short science fiction story once. At least, I HOPE it was science fiction! The premace was that the government had insisted that all people be MADE equal. If one had a crooked leg, all people had to have a crooked leg. If one had a missing arm, all had to have a missing arm. And if one was an imbecile, all that to have operations to become one too. All except the government officials, that is …

      • Joe Sahyan

        The story is Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron”. Great story…but scary. For a coupld of other tales that describe the horrors of liberalism and statism, read Jack Williamson’s “The Humanoids” and “With Folded Hands”. Not short stories, but novels, and excellent ones.You know, I realize that Stephen King is a nutcase lib, but I’ve always thought his story “Quitters Inc.” was a great (unfavorable) metaphor for lib government: Do what’s good for you or we’ll punish you.

      in kansas city they built a magnificent high school for the black kids, because the thinking was, well of course they can’t succeed, they don’t have the same facilities that white kids have. this school had statuary niches along the halls, with chandeliers, and the auditorium even had red velvet curtain for the stage. no expense was spared, they had an olympic sized pool and an indoor track, and the library was right out of harvard, with real wool carpeting and green shaded brass lamps for the study carrels. the labs were all state of the art, with $600 microscopes. does anyone know what happened here? i heard that the school was a massive bust, but i cannot cite sources.

      • Samuel Lopez

        It had to happen that way, because things does not work like that; I have noticed that mess in the USA since the 80ths, when a scholarship would be given to a black student instead a white student because the blacks were “priority”.

      • 45caliber

        uvuv:

        A federal judge ruled that they had to build that school. The school board held a bond issue to do it … and no one voted for it. So the federal judge DOUBLED taxes without any vote, stating they would remain doubled until the school was built. He was also the one to okay the plans for it. I never heard what happened it to, but little would surprise me.

        My girl friend in college went to highschool in Pontiac Michigan jsut when the busing started and they bused kids from poor black neighborhoods to the brand new school across the srtreet from her home she grew up in and shipped her and her fellow students down to the old worn out school that was teathered and had graffiti all over the walls and such, you get the picture. Said it was not six months and these poor black kids had the new school acroos the street from her nice home looking just the same as the old one. They did not want to be bused up there just as the others did not want to bused down there. My folks here in Dallas when that non- sence started moved us to a school in the richardson school district that did not have a minority run system and we did not have to do the bussing thing…Thank GOD!!! But this just goes to show you, you can take the hoodlum out of the hood, but soon they will just screw up the nice new infustructure very soon there afterwards. I remember when they brought mass transit to Dallas and the first station was opened in South Oak Cliff were the hood is. The city wanted to provide transportation to the poor colored people first. The city rail system put all this expensive art down there in the station and it took no time for theat sh– to disappear. Then they opened the stations up in the nicer areas and crime rate went through the roof all over the upper middle class neighbor hoods. Just saying….

    • Joe Berger

      I am an “old” retired teacher and educational psychologist. Vigilant is precisely correct in his observations. “Racism” is always permissible when comparing blacks with whites, as long as that comparison results in something favorable to blacks. e.g. You can compare and complain about the lower standards of living for blacks. NO PROBLEM. But that is clearly a racist statement….albeit acceptable because it should result in more affirmative action of some kind or other. Blacks have darker skins and curly hair is also a clearly racist statement, but also quite acceptable, because it is so obviously true. But comparing IQ test results or explaining lower scores on achievment tests on the basis of inherited intelligence is completely unacceptable. You can explain those achievement differences on the basis of white oppression and that also would be quite acceptable.
      In short racist comparisons are always acceptable if they favor blacks and condemm “whitey”. Racist statements that blacks and their legions of brainwashed white supporters deem as favorable to blacks are ALWAYS permissable, but NEVER permissable if percieved to favor whites.

      No offense, but what the heck are you talking about!?! Anyone can succeed if given a chance. You know, Thomas Edison had a ” low iq”. He was sent homw from the second grade with the teachers saying he didn’t have the ability to learn. These teachers went on to say he was muddled plus addleded minded. Granted, Thomas edison did have Dyslexia/ADD. However, look at all the things he created later in life. The light bulb, movie projector with phonograph. Thus, if your genetic theory is true, how come, Thomas eddison was able to do this. Therefore, re-evaluate your “genetic theories”. Thanks!!

      • 45caliber

        Tony:

        Environment is important, but genetics are more important. Many blacks do live as the whites do, depending upon where you are. And there is still an IQ difference just as there is a physical difference. Blacks tend to reach their maturity about 5 years before whites do. That is why they tend to dominate high school sports – they are more physically mature than the whites are of the same age. That too is genetics. Libs tend to agree with genetics IF the results are positive and insist it is enviornment if they don’t agree with them. However, despite what some may think or might like to think, generally the difference is only about 10 points. Not really all that much of a problem.

        However, if it makes you feel better, very few black Americans are actually 100% black. Most have at least half white blood and many have far more. (One drop and you’re black!) Only those who have come directly from Africa and marry someone from there are full blood.

        Dear 45caliber:
        Not to be argumentative, but please, don’t believe the nonsense that was written in the ” Bell Curve” for it isn’t true at all. All that book does is take certain examples way out of context to prove their bizarre points. It’s true, genetics determines an individual’s physical size, complexion, eye color, along with hair type, maybe the acceptability of certain type of diseases. Although, environment plays a great part in that too. However, in terms of intellectual ability, cognitive skills, etc. is based solely on environment. If a person is in an environment that’s destructive then there’s a great chance that person will be destructive. Yet, if that person is in an environment that is conducive then they will be productive. This kind of reminds me of the fantasy comedy called “Trading Places” that starred Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd in 1983. A brief synopsis, Eddie Murphy was a ghetto bum/hustler while Dan Akroyd was a successful , well educated investment broker. When, they changed places, the Eddie Murphy character became a successful business investor and the Dan Akroyd character became the ultimate bum-criminl drug dealer. True, this was only a Hollywood production. Nevertheless, it’s right on in explaining everybody should get a fair chance and this genetic baloney of different groups don’t hold water. Alright, i said a mouthful but i hope you with others understand the fallacy of this genetic bunk. What we need to do , as a society, is encourage people to work hard, study, and be disciplined. Then people can be successful. Thanks!!

      • 45caliber

        Tony:

        I’ve never read the “Bell Curve”. What I have done is spend about 65 years studying people. It isn’t that hard to determine what is genetic and what is environmental. Do a little of that yourself rather than take someone’s word for it. Many people insist that genetics does not affect humans at all, that it is all environmental. And the same people also insist that any difference in people is due to that environment rather than gentics. Those same people are wrong.

  • 45caliber

    It isn’t just holding back on critisisms. It is also doing things like using a separate grading system for minorities so they can get good grades for doing less work. It is accepting poor performance by all to get the minorities into the top grade system. It is by giving them extra credit to get into college ahead of better students. And there are other ways that I’m sure others can mention as well that tend to harm them.

  • Dale

    The entire public school system is geared towards creating teacher from kids that cannot do anything else. The majority of today’s teachers were C & D students who go to college and take the easiest classes, those designed for teaching degrees. What ever happened to math and science? Not required for teachers!

    The dumbing of America starts with the federal government controlled and outlined teaching system and is perpetuated by (un)affirmative action. Dumb people hire dumber people because they think it makes them look smart. Smart people hire the smartest people they can find because they know it allows them to do a better job.

    The two easiest degrees you can get in college are teaching and attorneys. What does that tell you about the system?

    • Vigilant

      Let us never forget that it has always been the PROGRESSIVE influences in education that have dumbed down the children (and I include most university graduates in that category of “children).

      It’s very simple: the ignorant, the functionally illiterate, the programmed socialists will vote for ever more of the same wealth redistributing, anti-capitalist, and freedom-robbing programs of the left.

      Tragically, this system has become successful in producing the type of electorate the socialists want. That Obama stands even a remote chance of being re-elected is eloquent testimony to this fact.

        ALAS… I agree that the “democratic” philosophy of life is non sensical and is certainly derived from a Marxist concept of man. But the tragedy is that Republicans are even more benighted…..with many being equally Marxist. Just look at the housing bubble that was created in 2000 to 2008. They created an atmosphere wherein anyone applying for a new mortgage could lie and misrepresent his income as much as he wanted. NOBODY WOULD EVER CHECK OR VERIFY. They allowed the “ninja” mortgage….. no income, no job application was perfectly acceptable. And don’t blame Freddie and Fannie. They had real guidelines that simply were NOT ENFORCED. It is the governments job to enfore the rules. But they did nothing. What many do not realize is that for every dollar that was lost on a mortgage, somebody else made that dollar. Mostly the rich.
        Number two. The insane military expenditures promoted by the Republicans are almost as indefensible..especially in Iraq.
        We are a civilization in rapid decline…..and you can flip the coin as to which party is worse. lol

The bubble started with Caarter and your buddy billy boy really stuck in for a ride. The conservitives tried to tell the dems it was an issue and they said that’;s ok we got it handled. Why Bush never stopped it who knows? But it was a bipartisan effort on all parts of the line.

      I think we should make a case for government intervention on the South. If they had practiced equality a hundred years ago and got rid of their “separate but “equal” line of doing business we wouldn’t have some of these problems. We all know nothing was equal and they did their darnedest to keep everything separate. How did deliberately keeping certain kids “dumb” work out for them? Well it set them back that 100 years or more. Why did the government even have to come in and force them to do the right thing in the first place? Thanks Southerners for putting the albatross of the government around our necks instead of allowing education to flourish. The more racially divided you were the more the rest of us had to suffer to make things “all better”. Now we have government Overreach where we are all caught between the racists and the extreme do gooders. I believe personal attitudes play a bigger part in our education system than pouring more money into what is not working. Those more expensive schools haven’t solved a thing either.

        You should do a little checking. The South has far less problems of this type than the North does and always has had less problems. The reason? We actually live with various races in one place. The North has used this as an excuse to interfere in the South since before the Civil War. Things haven’t changed that much. They still do. And your statement here simply proves it.

She was sent to visit a plant in Montana and later down here in the Houston area. She told me was was amazed at the difference in the way she was treated between the NE and here. She said it was as if there was no difference at all between blacks and whites here while in NE she wasn’t even accepted into some places to eat due to her race. She certainly wasn’t accepted by most whites there.

        45 – I have to agree with both your comments; all my friends of color as well as my son’s friends – we recently discussed this subject re South / North and his friends of color have said the exact same thing. The South is friendlier and accepting compared to the North – and I think it’s for the reasons you mentioned.

        I’m talking about the past Caliber and I think you are at least somewhat aware of that. I reckon I should have given dates such as from the 1970′s and before so as not to confuse you. I’ve eaten in plenty of Southern restaurants since the 80′s and indeed everyone was friendly and quite a mixed crowd at that. I have heard of racial tensions in the North but not seen any at restaurants. ( I’m from Illinois but live in Colorado). I did see discrimination against anyone who looked Mexican in the West but that was some time ago. Considering all the immigrant issues on this site I would say there is plenty of hostility(by certain folks) against anyone who is brown. Since all Spanish looking folks are lumped together just like some here try to lump all blacks as attending Rev Wright’s church.

        “45caliber,”

        I STRONGLY DISAGREE. THE “RACIAL HARMONY” IN THE SOUTH YOU SPOKE OF WAS ACTUALLY, “RACIAL DISCORD.” SEPARATE SCHOOLS WERE GOOD FOR CULTURAL PRIDE BASED ON RACE; BUT, SEPARATE SCHOOLS WERE HORRIBLE FOR NEGROES IN REFERENCE TO ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. DURING MY PARENTS’ GENERATION [IN RURAL MISSISSIPPI], CLASSES – UP TO THIRD GRADE – WERE HELD IN NEGRO CHURCHES. [After third grade, you went back to the "fields;" unless, your parents had money].

        NEGRO TEACHERS DURING THAT TIME, WENT TO A SO-CALLED “COLLEGE” WHICH WAS NO MORE THAN A GLORIFIED HIGH SCHOOL. MOST NEGRO TEACHERS AT THAT TIME, DID NOT HAVE THE MONEY OR TRANSPORTATION TO GO TO THE CLOSET “REAL” COLLEGE FOR NEGROES [Rust College]. SO, BUSING DID HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT IN REFERENCE TO ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. THE PROBLEM WAS, SOCIALIZING WITH CAUCASIAN STUDENTS PROVIDED NEGRO STUDENTS THE ABILITY TO “PICK-UP” BAD HABITS WHICH OPPOSED THE TEACHINGS OF THE CHURCH-BASED-NEGRO SCHOOLS. NEGRO CHILDREN DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THINGS LIKE, DRUGS, UNTIL THEY ENROLLED IN CAUCASIAN SCHOOLS.

    Professors receive criticism from both the student and the administration. College students expect “A’s” and will harass the prof and at the end of the course, their evaluation will give the prof low ratings. The administration will harass the prof because of one or two bad evaluations and ignore the 40 or more good ones. They will also harass all the profs in a general communication letter on grade inflation because their final grades do not fit the bell (Gauss) curve. Yet the actual offender is someone else.

    at least they dropped that african centrist mode of education, where they tried to teach that henry ford and the wright brothers, etc, were black. any black kid telling the white kids that george washington was black was humiliated when they opened the encyclopedia and showed his picture. who was that guy pomoting this, lawrence jeffries, right? another favorable trend is swinging back to teaching and honoring the great literature of white/european heritage. for awhile this was all tossed aside in favor of the camp fire legends of equatorial africa. oh no, don’t read jane eyre or tale of two cities, was the thinking, instead read about mamba and the talking stump. yes, there might be a great truth in that story. because, the saying is, if you took 1000 monkeys and put them in front of typewriters, one of them would eventually come out with the works of shakespeare. therefore by pure chance the story about mamba and others like it might hit on various nuggets of in depth philosophical and moral insight.

      Some Berkley professor first came up with “revisionist history”. (Many since have adopted it.) He’s been teaching that for at least 20 years. One of his claims was that the Africans invented hang gliding about 800 years ago, along with a dozen other such inventions. When confronted about it being false, his insistence was that they WOULD have invented the stuff if the Europeans hadn’t interfered with their culture and held them back so they should get credit for it.

        it was lawrence jeffries and louis farrakahn who tried to promote the afro centric “education” mode to build self esteem with black kids. this also permeated colleges and universities, where european based history, science, literature and music etc were subordinated to imaginary african empires, witch doctors, campfire legends and jungle drums. i am surprised you had never heard of this trend which fizzled out, i think due to the declining interest a student would have after one of two semesters of these empty calorie courses. i mean, how many variations of little black sambo can there be?

    Should you wish to find out more about why American schools are what they are ,please, read Schools Without Failure by William Glasser. Glasser claims that in life there is no failure as there is in schools and schools themselves find too many excuses for children’s failure. Specifically he points to sports and the military where there is no grading. Many educators looked upon his work as a sort of a Bible.

    Given his due, he was a dynamic speaker. In reference to his anti grading approach, it doesn’t take the brightest light bulb to see that the sports teams and the military are two institutions where grading is the most harsh.

    It is frightening that anyone drank the kool-aid.

    • GunbearerM1G

      I’ve been fed a lot of stuff about grades not being important while attending a community college in the early ’70s. Much later, I found that grades ARE important. In the military, you took a written exam that was an important part in securing your next rank. If joining a police department, you had to score a certain grade to even be considered for hire. When one is in the process of becoming a certified welder, non-destructive test technician, or a certified welding inspector, one has to pass a written exam as well as a practical exam. That should be incentive enough to learn as much as you can. There are many trades that may not require a college degree but still require proof of competency and that usually includes a written exam. These clowns who claim that they for some reason “can’t take tests” demand that things be watered down to suit them rather than make the effort to meet the challenge. An ability to pass the practical side of a certification exam, but fail miserably in the written exam portion may indicate a reading or comprehension problem that needs to be worked on.

      MARK MY WORDS…..
      We are completely finished as a civilization. NOTHING CAN SAVE US.
      In order to save ourselves we would have to go back to the philosophies of life prevailing before WW2 . And we all know that that is TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
      How did it happen??
      WW2 was a war fought by the Germans against Marxism. As Hitler said….”if we had been able to make a separate peace with England, we could have thrown ourselves, heart and soul, into the ambition of my life and the raison d’tre of National Socialism –the destruction of Bolshevism.”” . But we fought and died for Joe Stalin…. so he could later assist Mao and the Koreans etc. WE allowed “uncle” Joe to turn all of eastern Europe and much of central Eruope into a gigantic slave labour camp. (followed by much of Asia)
      And the entire world ( with the exception of Islam ) became fundamentally Marxist ( Social Democracy), in one form or another.

        Joe:

        You missed the biggest reason WWII changed us. The government suddenly learned that women can actually work outside the home! More people to pay taxes! Women wanted to return to the home and raise a family after the war but the government spent decades holding down wages for men and emphasising that women needed to work to “realize their goals”. That also got the women out into the problems of the world such as sexual gratification, etc. that has resulted in the lower morals we have now and put a lot of single mothers on the welfare rolls.

      • Joe Berger

        addendum…
        Don’t forget that at present birthrates, whites have a half life of roughly 50 years. that means whites will be virtually extinct in 200 years.
        Who will save us from the “dark ages”. Only the Ashkenazi and the Japs still have a pride in their heritage. But my guess is that their numbers are too small to make any difference to the rapidly expanding populaton of the 3rd world.

        Marxism has always denigrated and depreciated the upper classes while shamelessly promoting any and all “nonsense” that might benefit the lower classes.
        e.g. that man is largely a product of his environment and that genetics counts for very little.
        As I understand him …. even Bill Gates is very much a Marxist when it comes to social philosophy. And that is precisely why we are finished as a civilization.

    every once in awhile the wisconsin state journal would come out with an article telling of the continuing difficulty in lifting the black academic performance in the schools. despite all the good deed doer efforts the average black gpa’s were hovering at D minus. that’s my recollection, but just to be chummy let’s say D even instead. and this is in mao loving madison, with all its enlightened and progressive schools, not catfish mississippi. i would think that it would be almost statistically impossible for their grades to be that bad, there would have to be some gems in that group who would raise their overall performance. i mean, say what you want, but that trayvon martin certainly didn’t look stupid, but for some reason they just don’t seem to have it. on the other hand there was this 90% black school that had what was called remedial math for the disengaged and disinterested hard core types, and the idea was to just store them there for that class hour. but the teacher had other ideas, he taught them calculus.

    The university I attended was admonished by the NAACP (National Association of Always Complaining People) that they didn’t accept aenough people of color. The schools answer was that there was no reason to accept lower performing kids if they would just flunk out in a year, that would be a blow to their self esteeme. The black kids that did get in and get through were very smart and have done well. The same can’t be said for the Basketball team as they only won their first NCAA game this year. Some things are really important. (They also told the gov’t to go away when the ADA stuff hit and they wanted the school to be wheel chair acessible as it is on a mountain, they backed down)

      I remember hearing several years ago about a kid in NY City who was a standout highschool basketball player. (Don’t recall the name; if it isn’t baseball, I don’t follow it.) All the big basketball academies wanted him. One big school was going after him eagerly, until somebody (with some actual integrity) on the admissions board said, “Um, don’t we usually make applicants take an admissions test?” The board said, in effect, “Oh, all right! If you’re gonna be a stickler about it! We’ll give him a test,” The kid’s agent (yes, an *agent*, in highschool) said, “Uhh….That’s gonna be a problem. He doesn’t read or write all that well, see….” The school said, “We’ll give him an oral test.” They did. He flunked. So they tried again, asking him, this time, to name the days of the week. He got five out of seven. School said “Works for us! Welcome to school.”

        Now that I have heard of especially in sports.Does the player have moral values that will reflect on the kids who will look up to him? Some sports figures do need to be reeducated in behavior so that would be my concern. I have also seen blacks who have higher moral values than whites and are deeply religious. Yet there are way too many steeped in the gang culture where the leader is their “daddy” or father figure. The road is still long in fixing the broken education system. Although I didn’t care much for Santorum I think he had a strong religious/family background and a willingness for a stronger education system.

The only thing that makes it a gateway drug is the law.

    The leftist mentality towards minorities is that they are inferior to whites and they need special help to move forward.

Yet the right is usually regarded as racist and the left is somehow held up as the party that benefits minorities. A prime example of this is the voter ID law controversey. The left believes that minority groups are incapable of performing the most menial task of acquiring an identification card while the right is baffled why this would anymore difficult for a minority than it would be for a white person.

        LOL…that is too funny chuckB. i love it. Imagine those poor soles with Odrama’s $40 dollar light bulb. They would not be able to find the birth control pills in the dark. Oh Sh–!!

      Many years ago America sent Missionaires to the primtitive people. They were taught God made them with bodies to deal with their environment. Don’t stretch their noses, pierce ears, paint their bodies etc. Frederick Bastiat said… ” What God has made, He made well” Today, the primitive people should send Missionaries here. Look at our economy? is this the doings of a moral and smart people? Weighing assets agains liablities, we are the most broke and backward people the world has ever known, white, black, red and yellow.

      SLAVERY AND EUROPEAN DOMINATION ARE THE BASES OF YOUR COMMENTS. IF AFRICA HAD NOT BEEN COLONIZED, NEGROIDS IN THE SUB-SAHARA WOULD HAVE BEEN CONTENT WITH THEIR LIVES, AND, MONGOLOIDS [WHICH INCLUDES THE EGYPTIANS] IN THE SAHARA WOULD HAVE BEEN CONTENT WITH THEIRS. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR NORTH-/SOUTH-AMERICAN NATIVES. UNDER YOUR PREMISE, EUROPEAN EXPLORATION AND COLONIZATION ARE THE ONLY CULPRITS.

    It’s difficult to teach a ninth grade class when you have a 20 year old sitting there dribbling a basketball. Thats why they have low grades they dribble instead of studing./

      When you said “studing” did you mean “studying” or “studding”?

      • http://yahoo catsueme

        Errrrrr… mistakes, mistakes. Studying, although they do enough studding without much study.

    It’s okay for people of other colors to slur the white population, but not the other way around. I don’t, and never have, because my parents taught me to respect all people.
    I’ve always wondered why it’s okay to have a Miss Black USA, but can you imagine the uproar if there was a Miss White USA? Enough is enough.Sufficient time has passed that the race card should be completely taken off the table. And the “race” or “ethnic” check box should come off all forms and applications, if we want a truly level playing field.

    • 45caliber

      I agree with you. In fact, there is a law that forbids anyone to ask about race but the government ignores it. And, since you can mark any box about race that you wish without problems, it is really meaningless anyway.

      • http://wildeyguns.com Wildey

        45 Caliber, Laws create bondage, right thinking people demand their LIBERTY. They function under God’s rules of action and interaction. For a right thinking person race would never enter his mind. This government doesn’t want right thinking people. It finds it’s strength in dividing and conquering the people. After all, a people at peace with each other doesn’t need the government we’ve got.

  • http://wildeyguns.com Wildey

    When the Constitution was written it did not have any mention of education. The Founders recognized that government, all governments, are nothing an expressed opinion and to include one, one would be educated in the existing governments opinion. They felt people given the freedom to think on their own would reason to find what they created was the best one fpr them. Everything that has ever been written only goes to prove what the author already believed. Governments such as “the” one we serve would always Indoctrinate the people to accept what the government wants them to know as right and proper.

    Lenin, the Communist dictator, knew that people “think in words” and however they interpret words would be what they are. He told his generals to create words, change the definitions of words to mold the people into what he wanted. Hitler did the samething with his youth corps, brown shirts.

    Is this happening in America now? I use a 1828 copy of Noah Websters dictionary frequently so I can keep my head on straight. Did people learn their english on a CB’s channel 19 or from a rap singer? Watchout! A government teacher (cobra) is under your bed, on your TV, the theatre, everywhere. Do you hear many questions thrown at you or do you hear “facts” told to you?

    The dumbing down began in the sixties when desegregation was ordered because the ” educators ” found it easier to teach to the lowest level than to bring the slower level up to par . And then when they saw how well it worked for them they morphed from educaters into propagandists , because teaching ” social studies ” was much easier than history because there were no “established ” facts to trip them up The results are the “OWS ” nitwits . If your offspring are morons , blame a teacher or teachers and , of course , yourself .

    Speaking of”minorities”,alot of people “forget” that whites are the real minority here.Go ahead and laugh or whatever, but the TRUTH does hurt sometimes.I for one am in no way,any “part” Caucasian. I am white. A Prussian Viking descendant. My parents were teachers and neither “mistreated” their students.Matter of fact,many of their students would tell you of how they brought the “lower”level up to speed,while not “hampering” the “upper” level (one in high school,the other in elementary).

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “s,”

      YOU SAY YOU ARE A, “Prussian-Viking” DESCENDANT, YET, YOU HAVE CONFUSED THE WORDS, “Caucasian and white.” OVER TIME IN EVOLUTION, CAUCASOIDS [CAUCASIANS] WERE THE INHABITANTS OF PRESENT-DAY SCANDINAVIA WHO MIGRATED SOUTHWARD AND EASTWARD. ALTHOUGH MIXING WITH THE GERMANIC TRIBES OF EASTERN EUROPE PRODUCED SOME “COLOR-SHADING,” AT THE TIME OF THE Prussian Empire, CAUCASIANS (“whites”) LOOKED THE WAY THEY LOOK NOW. MAYBE, IN THE UNITED STATES, CAUCASIANS PREFER THE WORD, “white,” BUT THE MEANING IS THE SAME.

    the first thing that should be done: start educating the teachers, this doesn’t apply to all, however, there probably is a majority that has been educated in the public school system, these are the people from the sixties and their offspring, they are the ones indoctrinated by the great society, they were the victims of rewritten history. california elected a black superintendent of schools. wilson riles in the seventies, he replaced a well educated man by the name of max rafferty who was in a deadly battle with the on coming boilsheviks in calif. immediately riles turned the education system upside down, ordered new history books (this is when calif. schools hit the skids) the new books had little to say about our proud history, however, they did make reference to the anti war crowd, baez, jane fonda and other scum.
    when the liberals in the ed. dept made mention of riles it was always “dr. riles” as honey dripped from their mouths, i don’t know if this man ever went to school, i couldn’t find any record, but, the liberals mooned over him and he took our schools on a tail spin, not much different than what barry is doing to the country today and the only reason, he was black that’s all that counted. he was elected for three terms, this took care of calif.

    somewhere along the line it will be imperative that people stand on their own two feet and
    qualify for the position they hold, not by the color of their skin. otherwise we might as well throw the towel in, it will all be over.

    barry has shut down our space venture with nasa, turned it into a kindergarden for the muslims, he is cutting our defence and military, his foreign policy is defunct and we have half the people in the country still backing him. by the way where is his educational record? anyone seen it?

      I AGREE – AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS NOT WORKING. BUT, WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE? THE NEGRO COMMUNITY HAS DECIDED IT WANTS NEGRO DOCTORS, LAWYERS AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS. SINCE MOST NEGROES GO TO COLLEGE AIDED BY Pell Grants AND UNIVERSITY-SPONSORED SCHOLARSHIPS, HOW CAN POLITICIANS (OF ANY RACE) “BRING HOME THE BACON” IN REFERENCE TO EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS FOR THEIR CONSTITUENCIES? I SEE NO SOLUTION. IF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION STOPS, WELFARE ROLLS AND CRIME WILL INCREASE. NEGROES DO NOT HAVE THE “OUT-OF-HIGH-SCHOOL” TRAINING TO “FLIP” BURGERS WELL. [Every time I go to a fast-food joint, the Negro employee "messes-up" my order].

    the hippies learned that remaking society can’t be done with adults set in their ways. the trick was to reach the kids. now you see what’s going on, and not just with black kids. if you ask a high school student who ben franklin was, he would say, wasn’t he just voted off american idle? his idea of literature is people magazine.

    and what about the colleges and universities with courses like comic books, lesbian studies and pornography?

    Dear Liberals,

    Please be advised that your Race Card account has been closed. This decision was based on your account history of excessive over-limit spending. Please destroy your card immediately as it will no longer be honored.

    Sincerely,
    The American People

    No president in history came to office with more political capital than Barack Obama. He squandered it like a lottery winner within a few months. If liberals had any sense of irony, they would appreciate the inanity of braying about racism right after America elected a black president.

    Obama’s entire life has been devoted to fomenting racial animus. All of his mentors, from the rancid racist and surrogate father, Frank Marshall Davis to Fan of Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, have been rabid, whitey despising racists.

    In his fictional “autobiography”, Obama is consumed by bigotry. He can find ersatz discrimination in nearly any situation. Even his white mother was preoccupied with race.

    In Dreams, Obama describes his mother’s overly romanticized view of black Americans: “Every black man was Thurgood Marshall or Sidney Poitier; every black woman Fannie Lou Hammer or Lena Horne. To be black was to be the beneficiary of a great inheritance, a special destiny, glorious burdens that only we were strong enough to bear.” (Dreams From My Father, Pg. 51).

    No sensible American denies that blacks were treated abominably in the past. Slavery was a national ignominy as was segregation. It’s worth noting that Democrats have always been on the wrong side of civil rights.

    The Ku Klux Klan was the creation of southern Democrats. Some of us are growing weary of being charged with racism by the party that has a former Klansman serving in the senate.

    Blacks have long been abused in America, but not by conservatives. The Communist Party, ever on the lookout for a group to exploit, has always cultivated interracial tension.

    The useful idiots on the Left rely on divide and conquer. Inciting racial antagonism contaminates the culture and destabilizes the country. Racial harmony provides no advantage to liberals and Misery Merchants. When liberals start howling about racism, the question that must always be asked is: who benefits?

    If liberals really gave a damn about minorities, they would defy the teachers’ unions and support charter schools

    The Left has never cared about minorities. Like Hitler, it’s the Left that persists in segregating Americans into groups. If liberals really gave a damn about minorities, they would defy the teachers’ unions and support charter schools as well as home schooling. (Canadafreepress.com)

    The glorious turn out in DC on 9/12 has precipitated a whole new cycle of race bullying. The more fatuous pundits are calling it an “anti-Obama rally”. The truly malevolent are actively cultivating racial antipathy. Had anyone from the dinosaur media bothered to ask the protestors, it would have been obvious that they are disgusted with all politicians, of every stripe. It could be called an anti-Pelosi rally or anti-Reid rally, an anti-Washington rally or most accurately, a pro-Constitution rally.

    Any financial planner will tell you that if you find yourself paying for basic necessities with credit cards, you are in a predicament. When a politician runs out of political capital and has to whip out the race card, he’s in a bona fide quagmire.

    With his title as America’s Worst President in jeopardy, former president and Friend of Hamas, Jimmy Carter, had to lend his lack of integrity to the rumpus, insisting that speaking the truth about Obama is a hate crime.

    Like a compulsive gambler or shopaholic, liberals will have a tough time giving up the Race Card. It’s been remarkably effective in the past; but only because we enable them to get away with it.

    No reasonable American wants to be thought of as a racist. It’s an allegation that packs a colossal wallop. Fortunately, it’s an accusation that is rarely credible.

    Most conservatives recall Dr. Martin Luther King’s appeal to judge a man by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. We said okay.

    It is liberals who think racial color blindness is a form of racism.

    In point of fact, there are so few conservative racists that liberals have had to invent pretend code words and then try to catch conservatives using them in their tireless effort to keep grievances alive. Like all tyrants, liberals govern through fear. It is almost farcical to note that Hitler accused other parties of being “divisive” along sectarian lines and insisted he only wanted to focus on the economy. (Jonah Goldberg, Liberal Fascism).

    Toddlers and liberals lack the capacity to modulate their behavior. Liberals have over spent and depleted the Race Card.

    Like the consumer who has fallen on hard times and run out of cash, liberals have maxed out the Race Card and it must now be revoked.

      Your ‘ article’ loses its impact due to your attempt to sound ultra intelligent and knowledgable. You are incorrect in many of the things you sound off about – you are a ‘romantic’ with the ideal you have presented to this venue and expect those that read you will understand you – they won’t! Keep to the old ‘kiss’ policy – KEEP IT SIIMPLE, STUIPID! Bottom line IS people are biased today because of actions/behavior/attitude/way of life – the dislike it NOT based on the color of one’s skin but of how and what they do, how they act, their behavior and what they have created in this country because of it! They could have been any color but as a group they have become their own worst enemy! Change their behavior and mindset, and the rest will follow – but until then it will remain the same – they have become the most hated race in the universe because they have EARNED that reputation themselve – simple!!!

    WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL DURING THE EARLY EIGHTIES, GUIDANCE COUNSELORS HAD POWER. A GRADUATING SENIOR COULD MEET WITH THE COUNSELOR AND HAVE AN HONEST DISCUSSION ABOUT THE STUDENT’S PLANS FOR COLLEGE. GRADES, TALENTS AND SKILLS WERE HONESTLY DISCUSSED. YET, ALL OF THIS CHANGED AS MORE MINORITY STUDENTS BECAME ABLE TO RECEIVE Pell Grants AND TALENT SCHOLARSHIPS (ATHLETICS, MUSIC, ETC.). IN ADDITION, AMERICA’S INCREASING INTEREST ON MATH-/SCIENCE EDUCATION PLAYED A ROLE.

    I USED TO BE A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER. ONE DAY, WHILE “SUBBING” IN A TWELFTH-GRADE “AP Calculus” CLASS, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PERUSE THE TEACHER’S GRADEBOOK. I ASKED A STUDENT [A NEGRO] ABOUT HIS PLANS. HE TOLD ME HE WANTED TO GO TO COLLEGE AND MAJOR IN COMPUTER SCIENCE. WHEN I LOOKED AT THE TEACHER’S GRADEBOOK, I NOTICED THIS STUDENT HAD “Cs” AND “Ds” IN “AP Calculus.” THIS STUDENT HAD NO AWARENESS – WHATSOEVER – OF THE AMOUNT OF MATHEMATICS REQUIRED FOR A COMPUTER SCIENCE DEGREE.

    MY POINT IS, THIS ARTICLE IS UNFAIR. NEGRO PARENTS BELIEVE THEIR CHILDREN HAVE A RIGHT TO GO TO COLLEGE BECAUSE OF CIVIL-RIGHTS LAWS. GOING TO COLLEGE IS NOT A RIGHT – IT IS A PRIVILEGE. GUIDANCE COUNSELORS HAVE LOST THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE ACCURATE ASSESSMENTS OF NEGRO STUDENTS’ CAPABILITIES, DUE TO POLITICS.

    BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT JOB – ESPECIALLY, IN INNER-CITIES. STUDENT DISCIPLINE IS “AT AN ALL-TIME LOW.” MANY INNER-CITY SCHOOLS HAVE METAL DETECTORS BECAUSE SOME STUDENTS HAVE KNIVES (AND, A FEW GUNS).

    SAD SITUATION.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    AS A NEGRO, I FEEL A NEED TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT EDUCATIONAL CURRICULA. MANY NEGRO PARENTS PASS ON TO THEIR CHILDREN THEIR VIEWS ABOUT A NEED FOR AN ANGLO-EUROPEAN-LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION. ["Why do we have to study Chaucer, Shakespeare and Thomas Paine?...Black folks don't care about that"].

    BECAUSE OF THIS HATRED FOR, “white folks’ liberal arts,” NEGROES DO NOT HAVE ADEQUATE READING AND WRITING SKILLS; NOR, AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPORTANCE OF LIBERAL-ARTS EDUCATION. LIBERAL ARTS BESTOW THE ABILITY TO FORM AN IDEA, COMPREHEND THAT IDEA AND TRANSMIT THAT IDEA TO OTHERS. THE INABILITY TO DO THIS IS THE PRIMARY REASON NEGROES HAVE DIFFICULTY GETTING JOBS.
