Obama Backs Race-Based School Discipline Policies
The Daily Caller ^ | July 27, 2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 07/27/2012 1:03:43 PM PDT by hcmama

President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.

I nominate Obama's two kids to go to the majority minority hell-holes that liberals consign other people's children. Maybe they could report back to Mommy and Daddy what sector of the student population is disproportionately disruptive and violent.

If everyone except blacks gets their children out of government schools, there will be equality.

Think about it ... before your child is suspended or expelled to meet your racial/ethnic quota.

From the article:

“What this means is that whites and Asians will get suspended for things that blacks don’t get suspended for,” because school officials will try to level punishments despite groups’ different infraction rates, predicted Hans Bader, a counsel at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Bader is a former official in the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, and has sued and represented school districts and colleges in civil-rights cases.

at least special ed will get a lot “whiter” since this EO treats special ed referrals as “discriminatory”

Hooray! Less competition for kids like my son for these excellent resources and teachers

Oh man, at this rate all Mitt Romney will need to do is publicize pictures of his pretty face. Barack Obama will have dug his own grave to China by November.

This has got to be the most doltish thing in public education yet. Result will be more and more whites pulling out to homeschool or private school, and the occasional black parent who does care about order in the schools will be miffed too that they let the black children “get away with murder.”

So, to insure equal punishment rates, BASED ON RATES, black kids will be allowed to beat other students, and attack teachers without penalty, while the Asian kids will be suspended, or worse, for wearing mismatched socks to school.

Of course, that isn’t racist, right?

Sorry, as a long-time high school teacher, this has been going on in the high schools for awhile. Just google PBiS. It may not say so but it is aimed at white teachers to learn how to deal with minority students and what constitutes a punishment.

Some school districts already have such a policy informally. The American people in the name of “fairness” will be all for such an unworkable idea.

Think about it ... before your child is suspended or expelled to meet your racial/ethnic quota.

They'll meet the quota by NOT disciplining certain "minority" races. There are enough white drug babies for them to discipline (generally, not in every school) without worrying about the rest of the white population. But what about certain Asian "minorities" whose children tend to be motivated and well behaved?

I have known more than one teacher leave the public school systems because of the concept of ‘race based justice’.

Sowell wrote a book about “Cosmic Justice” quite a while back.

Liberals think they are virtuous and intelligent enough, and have enough information,

to impose “cosmic justice” for any past wrongs.

Obviously, this includes a lower behavioral standard for blacks in schools to “make up for” harsher punishment they received in the past.

I have taught third grade in a low income urban school for seven years. This coming school year we will have a new principal. She is a black lady from another school in the district. She met with all of the different grade levels one at a time this week to kind of get a feel foor how we all work together. When we tried to talk to her about discipline, she got very upset and said,” This is where my inner Shaniqua is gonna come out!” By the way, that isn’t her name. She said “I want to know why the hell over 80% of all office refferals last year were black children. Don’t sit here and tell me that they are the only bad kids in this school!” As she talked I just kept my mouth shut. She went through her little prepared speech with the occasional “bitch” and f-bomb thrown in. It was the most unprofessional meeting I have ever been in. As soon as I got home I started updating my resume because I refuse to be a part of that circus.

I teach special ed and it's been getting "whiter" and "browner". Did you know that IQ tests are discriminatory against blacks?

This was MLK’s dream. Affirmative action for criminals, thugs and wrong doers.

Let’s just turn the arithmetic around on them. For every wrong done by a member of a minority group, then members of the majority group gets a free pass on a proportional number of violent incidents. Is that what they want? It is what they are asking for.

I remember a situation at my son's school that reinforces your warning. This 15 years old black male, still in eighth grade, was chronically abusive, disruptive, and violent. Parents complained, teachers wrote up reams of disciplinary referrals and the administration refused to expel him.

Instead he was assigned his own personal anger management counselor, enrolled in a program called WRAP and was actually allowed to leave the classroom any time he felt he needed to "deal with his anger."

One day in class he became enraged when the teacher asked him to return to his seat. He cursed her out and when she sent a student to get the principal he picked up an overhead projector and threw it. It narrowly missed the teacher and landed at my son's feet.

I went to the principal and told him I was prepared to press criminal charges if something was not done. It took an incident of this magnitude to get this kid expelled and ultimately transferred to an alternative school.

So does this mean that before 3 black kids can be punished the school has to wait till same number of white kids get in trouble ?

Trying to find the fairness .... Gonna be a while I spose..,.:o)

Stay safe

so we will have a white boy getting expelled for drawing a picture of a knife, while a black child has to stab the teacher before he gets suspended.

I have seen this acting out too many times. I just kick them out and don’t care what happens to me. If I can’t teach the whole class then I am held accountable. These students generally are acting up in other teachers classes and have a long “school rap sheet”. They send them home for a few days and are back to continue their disruptions.

Let us carry this insane logic to a knew level under the following scenario.

Three very bad men, two are black and one is white, hold up a bank. During the holdup each kills a bank teller. The white guy bad man gets the death penalty and deservedly so. The black man that shot a teller also gets the death penalty and deservedly so. At this point if we give any penalty to the second black man it will upset the ratio. The third bad man gets to go free in the name of racial fairness. In addition the white dude’s victim was black so he was also charged with a hate crime. Therefor they killed him twice.

I wish George Orwell were alive today. He would have much to write about!

No they wont' suspend the black child. They'll have a pride parade in his honor for getting social justice on the honky.

What will happen is that teachers will not discipline the black kids out of fear but will discipline only kids of other races. Of course, the results will be there for all to see and it will be clear who does well in adult life.

Will government teachers by the millions go along with this? Yep! They will.

Amazing. In other professions, if a professional were to cooperate with methods **KNOWN** to be harmful they would be subject to malpractice suits and loss of their license.

Teaching as a profession seems to live on a very different and special planet. Teachers can fully implement practices that they KNOW are harmful and, not only get away with it, they demand the Mother Teresa award for doing it!

Where are the class action attorneys when we need them? Where are the massive malpractice suits against individual teachers, principals, and superintendents?

One more thing:

We have government schools in this nation because conservatives and Christians allow them to exist. If they really, really, really wanted our culture to improve they would do two things IMMEDIATELY:

1) remove their kids from the government schools.
2) demand that their legislators defund them IMMEDIATELY

They are back to pushing quotas in the justice system. That is like introducing quotas in bank lending.

Like liberals introducing race into qualifying for home loans collapsed the real estate market, introducing race into justice will collapse our justice system and send our country into a tail spin of mayhem.

Great. Our chaotic urban schools will become even more chaotic. White parents who cannot afford private schools and who live in places where the schools have more than 20 percent minority underclass children MUST make any sacrifice to move to a non-diverse (best option) or less diverse school or school district. Twenty percent plus schools are chaotic now. With quota- based discipline destroyng whatever shreds of order that remain, these schools will become downright dangerous.

So if some black punk comes up behind my son while he’s walking down the hall and punches my son in the back of the head, that POS is not gonna get suspensed from school or punished AT ALL by the school administrators if enough non-black kids haven’t been suspended that week/month?

And of course there will be a certain point that black punks in all schools will learn that the MORE crap they pull the MORE they will be able to get away with, including abusing other students, because the increased black race offenses will put them out of range of punishment!!!

Why in God’s name are white people all over this nation allowing these POS people to target their OWN children for discrimination. Because it’s concurrent with their white guilt programing that they’ve been receiving since pre-school age? They must not circumvent their programing or there will be hell to pay? And that “hell to pay” is some arbritrary guilt that some sheister shmuck SAYS that they SHOULD feel?

F U weak minded fools with your stupid white guilt syndrome horse sh*t. If some other race of people are less intellgent or prone to animalistic behavior, you ain’t gonna make it MY kids burden. These people can go straight to hell.

If everyone except blacks gets their children out of government schools

which is exactly what has happened to my childhood school district of Jackson Mississippi since Christmas break of 1969 (me 7th grade) and forced busing came down emergency court order...imagine this freepers...they actually closed schools an extra week to rearrange kids for racial redistribution...no thought to kids, parents, athletes, transportation, parents work schedules or most of all child safety...

just forced it at US Marshals gunpoint or else

since then the public schools have gone all black...it took around 30 years and whites have mostly gone to suburbs

worse hit have been poorer whites who could least afford it but acutally had intact families

maybe folks now get it why they (crackers lampooned by the media) fought hardest against racial "progress" in the 50s and 60s down South...they knew where they would end up...in the crapper
