Agreed - no-tolerance policies regarding even images or representations of firearms are destructive, insidious, and serve to mold a new generation of serfs who fear guns and believe they are only properly possessed by government.

Leave it to Holder to take a good cause — pushing back on “zero tolerance” school policies — and pollute it with a needless racial angle.

Poor behavior, socially (correlated to race though) based, needs correction.

When schools must report suspensions by race, they naturally stop suspending the black kids as much, the black kids know that, and misbehave even MORE.

I know. I hear it every night at the dinner table.

Way to go, Eric! Holding your people to lower and lower standards will confine them to the liberal ghetto forever.

Which, we know, is the point.

The best thing to do is put minorities in their own schools so that they can be disciplined as their “community” believes is necessary.

Question—how are we supposed to deal with feral youth, who are raised in ghetto culture? A culture in which trying to do well in school is derided asacting white? A culture in which all slights, real and imagined, are settled with violence?

Against this backdrop, teachers are supposed to try to socialize these feral youth. But any discipline administered is considered racist.

That’s the crazy world we live in now.

Holder is a racist lawbreaker. Unfortunately, he is in charge of ‘enforcing’ the nation’s laws.

He wants non-Whites to go scot free, and Whites to go to jail for thinking the wrong thoughts.

Holder is going to do something constructive?
Say it ain’t so! I guess even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then...
“Zero tolerance” needs to go.

The action won praised from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which offered forward research showing that black students make 36 percent of those expelled, though they represent only 15 percent of students.

Statistical drivel. They need to examine the rate of expulsion with the rate of expulsion-punishable offenses. They can break THAT down statistically and have a meaningful answer.

It's a shame that schools and governments just cannot do math.

If a white person called for easing up on standards set for blacks as Holder is doing...

They’d (rightfully) be called a racist.

Holder once said we need to hold a national conversation on race relations here in the US. OK Eric; how’s this for a topic:

How come we let blacks have an unfair advantage in education, in employment, in housing, and in every other aspect of life and it only increases their welfare roles, prison populations and illegitimacy rates?

What’s the answer you racist POS? Ignoring the Knockout Games? I don’t think so.

Unless they’re whitey kids making a “gun” and pointing it at another kid and saying “bang!”.

Those kids, to the plastic shredders.

I say again, and this comment from a black guy:

okay, I’m going out on a limb but... doesn’t what Holder want scream for...re-segregation?

“Alarming numbers of young people are suspended, expelled, or even arrested for relatively minor transgressions like school uniform violations, schoolyard fights, or showing “disrespect” by laughing in class,” Holder said during a speech in Baltimore.

Yes - and no. Certainly zero tolerance policies help when dealing with the lawyers, but they are overall stupid. Why would you not consider the individual situation when deciding on a consequence? However, I'd like to see a list (even one name) of students who have been prosecuted for violating the dress code or for laughing in class. As for criminal prosecutions for fights, I approve of that option when the fight gets out of hand or is unprovoked. This speech is another racial wedge based on nothing in the real world.

Yep, we definitely need a program to replace Negro bullies in the JustUs system with White and Asian valedictorians.

Black kids can’t behave in school because they’re socially inferior, black people can’t get photo IDs because they’re dumb, black mothers can’t depend on black fathers because they’re lazy - These are just a few of the things black leaders tells us every day about black people. Will black people EVER get tired of this?

Schools instituted zero-tolerance in response due to a disproportionate number of minorities getting disciplined.

What better way to deal with the problem then to institute zero-tolerance? Bring a handgun to school in your backpack - get expelled. Leave your fishing knife in your trunk - get expelled. Threaten to kill someone - get suspended. Fashion a handgun from a poptart - get suspended.

See how colorblind and easy it is??!!

How ‘bout it’s because more of Holders peeps are likely to be little thigs just like the baby daddies.

But how could this be ?? The schools are an infestation of diversity-loving liberals.
