Obama Stronghold Evanston IL Scraps HS Honors Program -- Too Many Whites Qualify
The Chicago Lampoon ^ | 11/24/10 | Chicago Lampoon

Posted on 12/09/2010 3:12:23 PM PST by Chicago Lampoon

WLS radio reported this morning that the Evanston Township High School, in the Obama electoral stronghold of Evanston, IL, was scrapping a number of its honors and advanced placement programs.

The reason, according to ETHS Superintendent, Eric Witherspoon, is that too many whites are qualifying for the program.

...actually, after a second reading, I don’t think it’s satire at all.

Leftists are only interested in destroying. Their goal is not to lift black students up but to tear whites down. It’s race warfare. They exist for the singular purpose of spreading misery, poverty, death, and despair and feeling good about themselves while doing just that.

I had one leftist NYU grad student write a comment on my Facebook profile which pretty much admitted the true nature of her own leftist agenda:

“the only way for the black man to rise up is to toss the white man down.”

The really scary part is that she is an Asian with an excellent academic record. Insanity reigns...

Today’s satire is sometimes quite literally tomorrow’s real news.

Any relation to the National Lampoon?

Yer satire is too darn close to the truth!

After reading it again, I don't think it's satire at all. I think it's straight news.

The families of those academically talented students need to get the hell out of that city. Let it fester in crime, poverty, hatred, selfishness, and all other manner of leftist moonbat slime. Take the children who still have hope and run.

It’s like a Jew trying to live in Palestine. The stupidest thing one could do is stay!

I think they also did this in Berkeley. Not enough of the right kind of people were in the honors program, or possibly it was the AP program, so they dropped it and used the money for tutoring minorities. The school board meetings got a little testy.

Evanston is considering the boldest step of all: eliminating an elite honors English course that has traditionally been offered to the highest-achieving incoming freshmen — usually white.

Above from the article.

So they are intent on bringing down English, the means by which we communicate; through some kind of quota engineering.

Nice.

The meantime, businesses will tend to hire the best and brightest communicators, and these students are held back from being their best and brightest.

Nice.

Hi, there!

I see you signed up yesterday. Your third post is an excerpted thread, linked back to your very own blog.

That’s a very clever idea! Before you make a habit of it, you might want to read this:

Post #552 is from Jim Robinson, the guy who owns all the marbles in this game. It’s a great little history/policy lesson for n00bies.

Do have a good time, and enjoy your stay.

Did she think that the Asians would somehow be exempt from the tossing?

Why did you excerpt this?

Because it is stolen from the Chicago Tribune and you want blog hits?

We hate blog pimps here at FR.

Hate’m.

This is not satire. Black parents and a handful of leftist teachers are outraged that Advanced classes are defacto white/Asian enclaves. Although the school is about half Black ,Blacks make up less than ten percent of Advanced classes. Liberal white parents and administrators were intimidated by the charge that the school is “segregated.” So, the decision was made to dumb the whole school down. Asking the dumb kids to study harder was never seriously considered. Anyway, the testing required for entrance to Advanced classes was culturally biased. The existence of “tracking” in advanced and general courses, causes self-esteem problems for the non-Advanced students. The usual nonsense. That's the end of this school.

“Did she think that the Asians would somehow be exempt from the tossing?”

Nope. She referred to herself as “technically white”...even though she is Vietnamese and has a dark complexion. Try to figure that one out. I guess the libtard definition of “white” is anyone who isn’t dark skinned drug pusher, high school dropout, or gangbanger (ie “youths making a choiceless choice because they are victims of the white patriarchy”)

I would have asked her why she didn’t quit school for the sake of the “colored people” (her words not mine!) but it seemed like a better choice to immediately and permanently cut off all contact with the lunatic.

No. This is straightforward reporting/commentary. The blog is wry, tongue in cheek, at times, but not satiric. Sources are cited — WLS radio, Pioneer Press, Family Taxpayers Network teachers salary data.

No it wasn’t stolen from the Chicago Tribune, which I almost never read and surely did not see their piece on this. I heard about the development on WLS and researched old coverage of it in the Pioneer Press Evanston paper.
By the way, I was invited to move my blog over to the Chicago Libune’s platform for pay and declined, because among other things, the libs who run it stipulated in their contract that they would have the right to censor me.
