  • White flight of teachers resegregating South

    01/13/2003 12:06:29 PM PST · 35 of 36
    JMP to rface
    There has been a trend toward making teacher pay increases contingent upon testing scores of the student population. The very fact that Blacks score consistently below Whites in every type of intelligence testing (an average of 15 points) means that a teacher at a predominately Black school will be punished for behavior that he/she can not influence. If everything else was even, this alone could cause White teacher flight. Unfortuneatly all other things are not equal. I suppose that would explain why even paying a premium for teachers to remain at predominately Black schools is insufficent to retain them. Things will not get better because both the White and Black establishment refuses honesty in these regards. Too bad.

    .........There is a holocaust coming and it is all because these people chose and put up with a communist leader who is building them a "workers paradise" aka "GULAG" that will exist for everyone EXCEPT the ruling elite.........
    .
    I believe you are correct that a holocaust is coming (already has begun), however I do not believe that it is caused by communism and workers paradises. The cause is the result of the colonization of Africa in the mid to late 19th century. European and African cultures seem to be incompatible. The whites in southern Africa should be offered refuge in the countries of their origin but that will not happen because the white governments of the world do not want to be accused of racism in their selection of immigrants as they would be if they turned down the north Africans in favor of whites. The bottom line is that these whites are screwed. We will be spared the grisley details by our liberal press (I think thats already happenning also, right?).

    .
    Because they want to eat. There are few places that will except them as refuges or immigrants. There was a recent article here about a family that was to be deported out of the U.S. and sent back to this hellhole because of some technicality in the immigration laws (they were white).

    Red, "Racist" has become such a powerful word that people will do virtually anything to prove that they never considered their own race at anytime in their entire existence. People will go even further and disavow any white person whom has any racial self awareness at all. We've all seen this phenomena in practice. "Racist" is like the atomic bomb of the English language. The political left has learned that the mere suggestion of "racism" can undo elections and deliver untold capitulations and surrender.
    Trent Lott is only the most recent to be nuked.
    .
    Until we start depriving the left of their expected results when hurling the unspeakable we will continue to retreat into oblivion. We need to collectively laugh at clowns like clinton instead of frantically trying to disprove the negative. If we start doing it at the grass roots level our unprincipled representatives will certainly align their jello consistencied backbones to accommodate.

    I discovered Savage in Central Florida about 2 years ago. Since then I listen much of the time (he is pre-empted by the Orlando Magic whenever they play, though still available on the web). He can be great listening when he is pissed off but it is tempting to hit scan when he starts all that self adoration. His attempts to paint call-ins who may disagree with him before he ultimately hangs up on them is transparent, weakens his arguments and insults his listeners.
    .
    As far as the article is concerned, it is the stations right to practce what amounts to censorship. Generally a business won't do this because ultimately the bottom line (revenue) rules. Perhaps that has been weighed here and the choice of KUGN loosing savage or the university meant that financially the university was more important to the stations bottom line. I would think that one of KUGN's competition has been handed an opportunity. It would be interesting to know if this occurs.

    wimycat, The victory belonged to the liberals when it was ruled by fiat from the bench that homosexuality was just one form of our "diversity" and therefore a protected behavior to be celebrated. I'm sure you recall the pundits talking endlessly about the slippery slope. Guess what? They were right. We're getting closer to the bottom of that slope every day. There is now nothing that can stop the momentum other than the people shouting "NO MORE, THATS IT, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH". You or I are not going to convince the left that they are wrong. We can't even convince the people here that the liberals are wrong. We have played on the unleveled playing field by their rules to get where we are today. It's not going to get any better by continuing the game under these circumstances. There comes a time when biting and eye gouging mean survival. The legal victory happened years ago and it didn't go our way.

    ........The law states that people who make this choice cannot be punished by being discriminated against for making this choice...........
    .
    The reaction of the sexually normal group of girls is as normal as would the reaction to undressing in front of heterosexual males. Their discomfort is perfectly understandable. They choose to not continue this forced practice. The school acted appropriately. Any judgement that forces the continuance of this practice should result in an impeachment.

    Look HM, I believe you are hitting on the constitutional principle, simply stated, that the rights of the individual can not be trampled by the many. It seems we do not agree on who the individual is.

    I did not mention Biblical law. I generally don't like to see people wear their religion on their sleeve. Natural law is the law of the physical world. All things are subject to it. Nobody decides, it just is. The inability of homosexuals to propagate themselves, thus removing the deviant trait from the species, is a good illustration of natural law. Since you brought it up, Biblical law mirrors the natural law perfectly. Makes me think it was by design.

    Look at it this way jjm2111. Nature generally has a way of taking care of just about anything you can imagine. Did you ever think that the aversion that literally all civilizations on the face of this earth have toward homosexuality may just be, just maybe, natures way of cleansing itself. Just a thought. Makes you think though, doesn't it. Maybe a good thrumping by little "losers" is pretty civilized compared to the stones and worst used by other cultures.

    Your post seems to directed at any whom would criticise homosexuality. So I'll give you the pleasure of a response. I have always found homosexuals to be pleasant, artistic, creative and intelligent people (I'm sure there are a lot of exceptions too). By and large they seemed harmless enough. Then they became a movement of "special" people. The agenda developed and I found that I no longer had the freedom to choose whether or not I wanted their company. And the agenda continues to this day with no end in sight. They are now demanding the right to influence the minds of my children. As in any moral evolution or change, as the extremes are continually encroached good people will either ride their tolerance to the extinction of their ideals or will begin to dig their heels in increasing resistance. Push to hard or too fast and people and things begin to break.
    .
    As far as your elementary ploy of " your resistance to my agenda means your really one of us" is not worthy of this forum. Besides being sexually challenged you appear to be challenged mentally as well.

    We all know that this is the way our forebearers handled problems such as these. We almost universally (at least on the surface) reject these types of solutions.

    ...........Presumably you are blind so ask a friend to read the article to you particularly the part about the weeks of taunting "Jew, Jew, Jew" by a group of Moslemaniacs which led up to this incident........

    Please read my previous post. Don't you guys ever get embarrassed?

    .........Umm.. haven't you seen what's going on in the world today?.........
    .
    Come on Darksheare. This story is about an incident at a NY public school between two young women. I contend that the reason that it was published is because of the world situation. It looks like a hit piece to me. How many fights did you read about last year involving young women in public school. In a population of 270,000,000 plus I'll bet there were more than a few.

    ......All you have done is denigrate the girl who got beaten up and condemn this story as hearsay and generally show no sympathy for the jewish girl and rush to the defense of the arabs and say this story is BS.........................................Don't let the facts get in the way. More details would be nice but there are enough facts to discuss this case......

    Come on swarthyguy, Nobody is taking the side of the Arab girl, only pointing out that there is precious little information here and with that little information the masses on this running dialogue have built a story that is not there. Lets review..
    .
    1) We know the jewish young lady was an honor student. What do we know about the Arab girls academics?
    .
    2) We don't know if anyone else besides the two girls were there to witness the altercation. We are told that IF there were any others there that they had been delt with appropriately.
    .
    3) We know that a councilman (elected in someones district, probably the parents district since the parents called him) talked to the parents and he was informed by those parents that the daughter had told them (the parents) that she was being harrassed and called "Jew, Jew, Jew", and therefore this councilman (Hikind) told reporters that HE believed that the incident was biased. (This is defined as hearsay evidence.) Hikind also told reporters that this was the culmination of weeks of harrassment and tormenting of the Jewish girl.
    .
    Thats about it, without the aid of the crystal ball apparently possessed by many here. From this information many are ready to condemn the Arab populations of this world. Following your post we are even treated to accusations of racism. Thats very puzzling as Jews and Arabs are not different races and are both semitic peoples.
    I've even been told that I was antisemitic for pointing out the inconsistancies of the article with the reation it has ellicited here on this forum.

    .......Are you saying that a local Border Patrol worker being caught in this situation is newsworthy in Spokane but not in Miami?........
    .
    Perhaps Spokane is an area with many illegals. I have no knowledge of the demographics there. I do have a lot of knowledge concerning the demographics of Florida. This is a hit peace against the Border Patrol or do you really believe that this story would have run if the perp had worked at Pizza Hut?

    ..........HEIL!.............
    .
    I understand that this was directed to droberts, however perhaps you can clarify for the rest of us:
    .
    1) You are acknowledging to droberts that he has your number as in HEIL HITLER, or
    .
    2) You are merely signifying that you are out of arguments and you are resulting to name calling?

    Inquiring minds want to Know.
