CLARKE: Liberal policies have destroyed the black family
washingtontimes ^ | 03/24/2014 | David A. Clarke, Jr.

The latest attempt by liberals to help black people is underway in our K-12 urban public schools. These do-gooders are now defining down socially acceptable behavior for black students in school. Bad behavior is being excused and attempts to hold black kids accountable by enforcing codes of conduct are called racist. Having a sense of discipline has always been considered a virtue, a redeeming quality, but now its roots are claimed to lie in racism.

White liberal elites have chimed in about school codes of conduct. The Capital Times newspaper of Madison, Wis., recently chronicled bad behavior by black students in its public schools. In the story, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said that racial discrimination in school discipline codes “is a real problem today.” The white superintendent of the Madison public schools believes that “we need to address head-on our racial bias and the assumptions we make of students who are in the classroom.” Really? Where I come from, bad behavior has always been unacceptable and is codified not by race but by societal norms to keep chaos from reigning.

These watered-down student codes of conduct sweeping across urban public school systems will not help black parents, kids or communities. Like every other display of liberal empathy, they will have a reverse effect, and it will not be positive. All anti-social behavior and social pathology is normalized, and to disagree is racial stereotyping.

What these race provocateurs do not want to admit is the reason we are seeing more disruptive behavior in schools is because of poor and ineffective parenting, manifested by liberal policies. There is a government program today for everything in the black community that used to be the responsibility of the individual

They keep talking about the disproportionate numbers
of minority kids being disciplined as though it was a
racial crime.
What if it ISN’T?
These liberal policies are creating a generation of
feral predators, groomed to prey on the populace.
Which will then clamor for more government involvement.
Funny how that works out...

i fail to understand the black culture.
Do the worst you can in school,
have babies you ignore
kill each other
and complain about your plight but do squat to improve it.

Regardless of policy, foolish behavior leads to a dangerous, disorderly, shortened life.

The liberals are only enabling the foolishness.

You are correct. Johnson’s policies made things worse, but the habit of black fathers leaving their families was a growing phenomenon many years before The Great Society was initiated.

What? Well this just proves it. We need more fed govt programs. It is obvious that there hasn't been enough money pushed into the system to fix this. What about reparations? That should help somewhat. What about a gas discount taken at the pump just for blacks? What about free college education? How about free cell phones, we can call them Obamaphones? How about Obama paying for mortgages? How about a tax discount from the IRS - oh, that's how reparations could be paid?

Obama Is Going To Pay For My Gas And Mortgage!!!
