MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry joined her fellow MSNBC host Joy Reid on Friday to talk about the anniversary of the Supreme Courts historic decision in Brown v. The Board of Education and modern racial dynamics in education. Harris-Perry, an educator herself, said that the metrics used to assess the quality of an education need to include diversity as well as factors like test scores and college attendance.
Harris-Perry and Reid wrestled with the history of segregation in education and eventually moved on to discuss the rise of charter schooling which both noted are now attracting minority students as well as white students. Reid noted that this phenomenon leaves public schools with fewer students who may not be of the highest academic caliber.
You and I are both parents, Harris-Perry conceded. So, we know that when are you making a choice for your individual child, you can have political commitments and theological commitments, but your primary commitment as a parent is to make sure that the best educational opportunities are open for that kid.
That said, she continued, I think we do need to start thinking of an integrated classroom as a quality classroom.
Part of what happens is we use these measurements for the quality of the classroom and the quality of the school that dont account in any way for racial diversity, right? the MSNBC host added. Its only test scores or number of kids who go to college, which are meaningful, but I think the other piece of it is to say you are not getting a full education, you are not being indicated as a human being or as an American citizen if you are learning in a single-race classroom.
Watch the clip below, via MSNBC:
But the liberals tell us there is only one race. So no one has ever learned in anything but a single race setting.
I’d like to see the school’s that their kids go to.
Remember to tell that to the schools supported by the UNCF.
As soon as the limousine liberals got the public schools down here integrated, they pulled their own kids out and put them in private schools.
So she is going to put her little darling (you know there is only one) in an inner city school?
She’s right. You’d be missing
How to apply for a WIC card;
How to write rap and hip hop;
Which wires to short to steal a ride;
Proper use of the Slim Jim;
Proper belting technique for the dropped pants look;
How to speak ebobnics;
And so much more.
It’s a well settled axiom of government school education that a black kid is incapable of learning unless sitting next to a white kid.
No ghetto rats there.
You forgot how to make change for a “dime bag.” B-P
The Current FReepathon Pays For The Current Quarters Expenses?
Beat me to it.
That’s a great response. Maybe she is right though, after all, look at the result of Her education, a total idiot incapable of coherent and intellectual thought.
I'm sure it's a diverse racial mix of whites and Asians.
Just imagine the level Albert Einstein could have reached if only his education had been guided by this genius.
But what they're not learning is math, english, science, history, etc. in a classroom where the teachers spend 90% of their time dealing with disruptions and the other 10% of their time teaching to the left corner of the bell curve.
Melissa Harris-Perry And Husband Welcome Baby Girl on Valentines Day
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband James Perry took to Twitter to announce the addition of a new baby girl to her family on Valentines Day.
Harris-Perry may have received the Valentines Day surprise that tops them all.
The political commentators daughter was born on Valentines Day and she couldnt wait to share photos of her bundle of joy with the world.
Melissa and James had a gestational carrier and created their own biological embryos.
Melissa was unsure if she could ever have a shared biological child with her husband due to her hysterectomy, so the new baby girl was a true blessing for the Perrys.
Her husband tweeted a picture of them cradling the baby girl along with the caption, Heres the wonderful Valentines day gift that @MHarrisPerry & I received yesterday! A beautiful baby girl.
The Perrys have been married since 2010 and already co-parent Melissas daughter from a previous marriage.
The MSNBC talk show host also made headlines back in December after a joke about Mitt Romneys grandson offended some viewers.
The backlash sparked when Harris-Perry and her guest panelists made jokes about Mitt Romneys family photo.
Romneys grandson is an adopted, Black baby and he stuck out in the family photo.
Shortly after the segment aired Harris-Perry issued an apology for the jokes that were said on air and explained that she didnt mean to offend transracial families.
I apologize to all families built on loving transracial adoptions who feel I degraded their lives or choices, she tweeted. As Black child born into a large white Mormon family I feel familiarity w/ Romney family pic & never meant to suggest otherwise. Therefore, while I meant no offense, I want to immediately apologize to the Romney family for hurting them.
You may dismiss this as more insane rantings from the queen of tampon earrings.. but it is actually another glimpse into the true liberal agenda.
“you can have political commitments and theological commitments, but your primary commitment as a parent is to make sure that the best educational opportunities are open for that kid.”
A seemingly innocuous statement I would not agree with, but this is only truly radical when coupled with what comes next.
“you are not being indicated as a human being or as an American citizen if you are learning in a single-race classroom.
I’m not sure she knows what the word ‘indicate’ means, but read this again. You are not a human being, not an American citizen (under the protection of the Constitution) if you are learning in a single race classroom.
Make no mistake, this is a thinly veiled slash at private schools, religious schools, and homeschooling families, the three educational sects that are on average homogeneous.
What Kapo Harris Perry is saying is that educational concerns override any political (the desire to protect your children from leftist indoctrination) or theological (the desire to protect your children from homosexual pedophiles) concerns. BUT she is now saying that in addition to academic components, educational concerns must now include a sort of ‘diversity quota’. If your child is not FORCED into contact with various sexual degenerates, communist peons, as well as every possible race in existence regardless of your educational level, then you are not really an American.
This is the same left that tells us to not see color, and to never mention it. I don’t pass judgement based on skin color, though I may make educated estimations. If a black or Hispanic or Asian kid displays the value set I want to instill in my child, I encourage contact as much as with a white kid. But I do not want a child poisoned by the anti-God left. I don’t want them in a classroom with dopers, gang members, perverts, and left wing activists, being taught to hate the Founders by some 50 year old former domestic terrorist, whatever their color!
Harris Perry is a goose-stepper, plain and simple. Head’s up, dumbass. Nobody else’s kids belong to you or your little ‘communist community’. Go jump off a bridge.
