Posted on 01/11/2014 6:09:14 AM PST by ilovesarah2012
A new report from the Schott Foundation reveals that only 47 percent of black male students earn a high school diploma on time. Ironically, this report came out shortly after Judge Vaughn Walker ruled regarding Proposition 8 in California. If the statements on which Judge Walker based his ruling are "facts," how do we explain what is happening educationally to boys in the black community where a large majority are growing up without fathers?
Nancy Pearcey, in an article on American Thinker, identified certain "facts that Judge Walker claims are now established by the 'evidence' presented in his courtroom." Those "facts" presumably will be deemed as "truth" far beyond the courtroom. Among those "facts," the following three are especially relevant for young black boys' futures:
"Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage."
"The gender of a child's parent is not a factor in a child's adjustment."
"Having both a male and a female parent does not increase the likelihood that a child will be well-adjusted."
Those three general false principles that Judge Walker supposedly established in his arguments in favor of so-called "same-sex marriage" are equally faulty when applied to the more than 40 percent of today's children who are born to single mothers. They are doubly relevant when the majority of those children are black.
Here are some irrefutable facts that Judge Walker and his ilk need to ponder.

You cannot declare, legislate or rule that a destructive environment, peer-pressure group, lifestyle, lack of morals or humanity are ‘normal’ and all acts thereof should be and can be excused. Removing the consequences does not make the act(s) acceptable.
Too busy knocking old women to the pavement???? Killing old men for pocket change??? Too stupid????? I give up ..what’s the answer?
“whats the answer?”
A teacher told me he publically complemented a black male on his excellent performance. The other blacks beat him up so badly he was out several days. When he came back he never participated or turned in any work again. None of the black males turned in any work either. (This is approximately what he said. I don’t recall the exact wording.) When he talked to them about their performance they said if they did the work they’d be playing white.
You can’t overcome that sort of cultural view. Not when it’s viciously self-enforced.
They can’t figure out how to keep there pants from falling down. I don’t blame them. I wouldn’t go to school if my pants kept falling down.
Most of them probably won’t graduate their 20s either.
They’re not graduating FROM high school, either.
Two choices- prison or EBT for life!
Because they’re dumber than a box of rocks.
Here I am trying to have a serious, thought-provoking conversation, and you make me crack up laughing. Bad you!
Schott Foundation, nuff sed, thier shot. Looking for excuses to skirt RESPONSIBILITY! Irresponsible parents breed irresponsible children, politicians and thier agendas encourage, fund and support thier lifestyle and thier leaders are the black political plantation owners who are feeding off of them and securing thier positions at the big table
They were better off before Brown v. Board of Education.
When your role model Prez of the US is a thug community organizer you figure bein a thug community organizer may be good enuff. Get you some face with Beyonce and Jayzee, and lots a time on the links, too.
Plus, there’s the unmentionable IQ issue.
Americans who are black are not important to the Democrats. Their votes are. The Americans who are black think they can manipulate the Democrat politicians with their votes. This ensures that the Democrats will give them the minimum necessary to get their votes. The Americans who are black and the Democrat politicians see voting as a business transaction. The Americans who are black “sell” their votes to the Democrat politicians in return for government benefits. The Democrat politicians are selling government benefits to the Americans who are black in return for their votes. It is then in the best interests of the Democrat politicians to provide the minimum amount of government benefits to the Americans who are black. When voting becomes a business, then the Democrat politicians see a percentage of those government benefits as being a cost of business that they should be paid for. The Democrat politicians will budget/ration government benefits in order to provide themselves with more money and to buy votes from other groups.
We will be having this or a similar conversation 100 years from now.
Listening to representatives of the race hustlers and their disciples ... it appears they believe that graduating from High School is for whitey.
That’s easy to figure out.
With no father, they grow up without any model of real masculinity.
All authority in their lives is female.
Their only way to be non-female is to rebel against authority.
The whole thing about “not acting white” is their way of saying “not acting female.”
I would bet anything that when 90% of black children had a father, nobody talked about getting an education, marrying, and having a family as “acting white.”
It’s a funny thing how the “legacy of slavery” (i.e., high illegitimacy, weak or no marriages) didn’t kick in until the 1960s.
