DOE: School Suspensions of Boys, Blacks, Disabled May Violate Civil Rights Laws

Melanie Hunter, CNS News, December 13, 2012

“Students of color, students with disabilities and male students” are suspended at a disproportionate rate to their peers, in “potential violation of civil rights laws,” an official from the U.S. Department of Education said at a congressional hearing Wednesday on the so-called school-to-prison pipeline.

“We are alarmed by the disparities in disciplinary sanctions, particularly for students of color, students with disabilities, and male students,” said Deborah Delisle, assistant secretary for the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education at the Education Department.

In written testimony, Delisle said such disparities are a “potential violation of civil rights laws.”

“When African-American students are more than 3 ½ times as likely to be suspended or expelled as their white peers, or students with disabilities are more than twice as likely to receive out-of-school suspensions as their non-disabled peers, as they are today—it raises substantial concerns,” Delisle told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“These concerns are reflected in our department’s enforcement efforts and in the stories we’ve heard from the field, which demonstrate too often that students face disciplinary actions on the basis of their race,” she said.

Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said at the hearing that he and the CBC have “advocated vigorously for over a decade that the federal government should lead the effort to address the over-disciplining of youth—a key factor involved in the educational crisis of African-Americans and especially African-American men.”

{snip}

“We must focus on the early years as well. It is unacceptable that African-American male preschoolers are expelled at almost nine times the rate of African-American girls with white preschool boys being expelled at almost four times the rate of their female peers,” Davis added.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Mich.) also cited statistics on the disparities in discipline in the nation’s schools. He said African-Americans are three times more likely to be suspended and four times more likely to be expelled than their white peers. Also, more than 70 percent of students arrested in schools are African-American or Latino.

“Suspensions, expulsions, and in-school arrests lead to kids being out of the classroom and a troubling increase in the number of people in the juvenile justice system,” Durbin said.

“This school-to-prison pipeline has moved scores of young people from classrooms to courtroom. A schoolyard fight that used to warrant a trip to the principal’s office can now lead to a trip to the booking station and a judge,” Durbin said.

“Sadly, there are schools that look more like prison than places for children to learn and grow. Students pass through metal detectors, and police roam the halls. Suspensions, expulsions, and in-school arrests lead to kids being out of the classroom and a troubling increase in the number of people in the juvenile justice system,” Durbin added.

To make sure all students are “treated equitably as a nation,” Delisle called for “a multi-prong strategy that encourages educators to pro-actively monitor their discipline practices for disproportionality, assess for root causes where disproportionality exists, and engage in a broad-based community effort to develop an action plan to root out discrimination in the administration of discipline.”

    A lot of these suspensions are for violations where a suspension or expulsion is mandatory, such as guns and drugs on school property.

      There was a moolie “honors” high school across the street from my college. The gym, which was on the top floor, had bars on its windows so that students or teachers couldn’t be tossed 40 feet to their death.

      • MekongDelta69

        You know how you can tell the difference between black ‘honors’ high schools and black ‘non-honors’ high schools?

        The ‘non-honors’ black high schools all have bars on the FIRST floor.

        Ba-dum-bum…

        Gym on the top floor? I would hate to be directly underneath it during gym class.

      When I started high school, I was wearing the broken leg I earned myself in the summer of 1981. I had already signed up for archery, and made a crossbow at home after realizing I couldn’t stand up to shoot.

      The teacher let me use it, and it was kept at the school’s main office.

      I made more crossbow bolts at home out of arrows the class broke.

      There is no way that would have been allowed here only 31 years later. As Gianrico Carofiglio once wrote, “The Past is a Foreign Country”. They do things differently there.

      It is a shame.

      • Puggg

        I get your point, I wish rifle and archery were still staples of high school athletics.

        The point this pup is trying to make is that the left is simultaneously demanding mandatory zero tolerance in schools for gun possession, i.e. automatic suspension or expulsion, then turning around and moaning when too many blacks are suspended.

        Also, this nonsense line, “school-to-prison pipeline,” is a dumb phrase I’m reading more and more from the left and the media and civil rights excuse makers, along the same lines of “prison-industrial complex.” It’s as if they all thing black students and black people in general don’t do anything wrong, that some big ugly system just sucks up black men like a super giant Oreck vacuum cleaner just because someone wants to.

      That’s not the disabilty they’re referring to. Welfare mammies can collect about $700 per piece of crotch fruit by having them declared disabled.

      • dukem1

        Exactly. They’ve probably been diagnosed as “learning disabled” , probably Attention Deficit Disorder (essentially young boys acting like young boys) which then “entitles” them to a monthly stipend via Social Security…the NYT had an article on Sunday which illustrated how parents resist solutions so as to not lose the cash flow…
        What this article illustrates, in “spades” so to speak, is that not only is the DOE a bad idea in general, but also that it is populated by imbeciles..

        More importantly, most school districts are given “multipliers” whereby “special needs” or “disabilities” students are credited to the district or school for significantly more money/pupil if they can be so classified. The school benefits, parent/guardian benefits, property owners get screwed, (but who cares?) so there is every reason to have as many as possible “disabled” in the classroom.

        Everybody is ADHD, ASD, a visual-learner, dyslexic, obese, at-risk, left-handed or something else from the lexicon of childhood intervention specialists.

      I couldn’t agree more. What a load of rhetorical manure. I especially like the, “broad-based community effort to develop an action plan to root out discrimination in the administration of discipline.’” Sounds like it was taken from the Jessie Jackson (if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bs) school of oratory.

      It is not the feminazis that go to college and major in education. It is the black, most female below average student that majors in education.

    • OlderWoman

      Translation: It says nothing but bull shite.

    • Andy

      When schools talk about “handicapped” children being disproportionately disciplined, they mean they have some kind of “behavior disorder”. Any student who misbehaves enough to require many detentions, suspension, or expulsion is diagnosed with a “behavior disorder”, classified with autistic and blind children, and given special privileges such as leniency and the right to roam the halls at will. In addition, many desperate teachers press for problem students to be labeled disabled in hopes they will be medicated, given an aide, or removed from the class. And as The_Bobster said, parents may press for false diagnoses to collect extra money.

  • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

    The problem is that most educational institutions are geared towards girls. Girls usually are more advanced than boys at a young age. A five year old girl is ready for school but a five year old boy often is not. Parents that realize this , will keep their sons out of school until age 6 when they are on par with five year old girls. Girls are usually more sedate and present fewer behavior problems than boys. Boys on the other hand, want more of hands on learning than girls do. Teachers need to be sensitive to the differences between the genders and teach appropriately.

    • The__Bobster

      I remember when the feminists were bitching that schools were geared toward boys, and girls were ignored.

      Even with all the feminist nonsense going on, White boys are still smarter than everyone else. What isn’t recognized is that they can sense the malarkey from a very young age and they just opt out. What is seen with all this nonsense of girls/women getting all these college degrees is just an illusion of success. White men still run everything that matters in the world and always will.

        “White boys are still smarter than everyone else.”
        I imagine you are including yourself in this generalization and I’d wager my teenage daughter is much, much smarter than you and she’s still in high school. White men who claim to be white nationalists really need to rethink these overly-generalized insults at white women. We’ll never get the population growth we need with an attitude such as yours. There are plenty of educated women who are not feminists. Receiving a college education is not nonsense. Smart women produce smart children. And there are plenty of smart white women and men. Hopefully, they will meet and produce plenty of smart children. The dumb ones always seem find each other.

        • [email protected]

          I’m not apologizing Dianmond_Lil. I just want to clarify what I’ve said. Sure there have been zillions of men who’ve loused up Everyone knows that. It’s interesting that such a thing would even enter into a conversation.. As far as smart, I’d wager a retarded Cocker Spaniel could give me an intellectual challenge. But that isn’t the point either. The point remains that boys are generally smarter than girls. It’s not anything to crow about or get angry about. It’s just one of the differences in men and women. As you say, the smart (not necessarily educated) people find each other and the dumb find each other. Should we feel sorrry for Charles Lindbergh, Chuch Yeager, Albert Einstein (HS dropout), Harry Truman, etc? because they didn’t graduate college. We’ve gone way. way overboard on this education kick. Another uneducated (never went past 3rd grade) guy said, “I never let my schooling get in the way of my education” – Mark Twain. We White people are in this together. It does us or our movement no good to nitpick on such differences that don’t amount to a hill of beans. Take care Madam and have a good day.

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            Actually, men and women score equal on IQ tests.

            Although there are indications that this might be artificial, and that they remove questions where men traditionally score higher.

            But what is more important, is that when you talk about smart people, you aren’t talking about averages.

            And men have a higher “diversity” in their score, or rather, they have a larger standard deviation.

            Which means that men and women might have the same average score, but there will be more intelligent men than there are intelligent women (which is counterbalanced by there being more stupid men than there are stupid women as well).

            Same thing goes for whites, they also have a higher standard deviation than other population groups.

            Which is why it isn’t that hard to find whites who are as stupid as blacks.

            Whites simply have a higher ratio of highly intelligent people as well as a higher ratio of dumb people.

            This is something that has been said is what gives whites an edge over east-asians.

            While east asians have a higher average, they have a lower spread.

            And since progress is created by the highly intelligent, whites have more highly intelligent people than asians.

            But asians instead have the advantage of having much fewer stupid people, which tend to be a drain on society. Both because of a higher average score and a lower standard deviation, which is one big reason for the low crime rate in these countries (there is a clear correlation between low intelligence and crime).

          • Svigor

            I agree with most of what you said about sex differences, I should point out that last I heard, there was no evidence for the “yellows have a lower spread” thing.

            “The point remains that boys are generally smarter than girls. It’s not anything to crow about or get angry about.”

            Perhaps in your generation, not seeing it in mine or currently. If you define the boundaries of your argument, I might agree – for instance, in math and science and jobs that required upper body strength, men do typically excel. Other than those fields at this time, I don’t see much difference.

            I’m not angry or crowing, I’m just sighing. My eyes have been opened fully, for the past few years to the pride of my loving husband and Mr. Taylor’s books and this website have been instrumental as well as TOO.

        • Svigor

          I would like to introduce to you the concept of deception. In this case, knowing that women fall short of men in many intellectual endeavors, while smiling to their faces and pretending “of course women are the intellectual equals of men” vis-a-vis interpersonal relationships with women. Thus, we get to have our cake, and eat it too; know reality, and avoid bruising the notoriously fragile female ego.

        The reason that girls excel in school is that girls mature earlier than boys. White boys who do not go to college tend to go to vocational schools or the military.

      You are so right about the educational institutions being geared toward girls. My girls are perfectly behaved angels and doing quite well. My son has been kicked out of preschool and suspended on several occasions for his inability to sit and complete a worksheet when there is a perfectly good playground just outside unoccupied. At home, my son is learning his times tables while dribbling a basketball or riding a scooter. My method seems to be working better than the school’s.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        If I ever have a son, I plan to either send him to a proper private school geared towards boys, or homeschool him if I can’t afford private school. Of course, I would also keep any future daughters away from Diversity and in nice schools as well.

    - Melanie Hunter, CNS News, December 13, 2012

    It raises substantial concerns for white parents whose children attend public schools with large black populations. Because the black murder rate is nearly eight times the white murder rate, I suspect that African-American students are treated more leniently than white students.

    http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/homicide/race.cfm

    Liberals pressure public schools to reduce the expulsion rate for blacks. They ought to be pressuring black students to stop causing problems.

          I will take that as a compliment, thank you.

      • JohnEngelman

        Thank you. Orientals tend to be superior to whites the same way that whites tend to be superior to blacks.

        This is how Professor J. Philippe Rushton explained it in his essay, “RACE, EVOLUTION, AND BEHAVIOR,”

        “Orientals are slower to mature, less fertile, less sexually active, less aggressive, and have larger brains and higher IQ scores. Blacks are at the other pole. Whites fall in the middle, but closer to Orientals than to Blacks…

        “In the U.S., Blacks are less than 13% of the population but have 50% of all arrests for assault and murder and 67% of all arrests for robbery. Fifty percent of all crime victims also report their assailants are Black, so the arrest statistics cannot be due to police bias. Blacks make up a large share of those arrested for white-collar crimes. About 33% of persons arrested for fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, and receiving stolen property, and about 25% of those arrested
        for embezzlement are Black. Blacks are under-represented only in offenses, such as tax fraud and securities violations, that are committed by individuals in high status occupations. On the other hand, Orientals are under-represented in U.S. crime statistics.”
        http://www.charlesdarwinresearch.org/Race_Evolution_Behavior.pdf

        Professor Rushton spoke at six American Renaissance conferences. He spent his career telling the truth about racial differences, and suffering the consequences.

        • So CAL Snowman

          I am aware of Professor Rushton’s work. However, if Asians are all that you and Rushton claim, WHY do they have to immigrate to WHITE MAJORITY countries for a better life? Why is Silicon Valley in the USA and not Japan or China? Why instead of innovating, do the Chinese rely on STEALING Western technology? Why are more than half of the Chinese poor, rural, peasants? What is the collective IQ of the poor, rural, Chinese peasants?

            Japanese do not move here, nor do they want us to us to move there. Our best equals or exceeds their best but the bottom half? It is no contest – they far exceed us.

            There are much more group oriented, like social ants. Just a little too regimented and “hive-ish” for most Americans. We would not tolerate random police questioning and home inspections for “public safety” as they do in Japan. This is why, I hypothesize, that despite their personal ethics and industry, they typically support Democrats in the U.S. They believe that the individual is inferior to the government and exists to serve the group. Well, that probably works okay where you have a homogenous society of like-minded people but when you mix them with a bunch of lethargic mud-hutters, it ain’t gonna go so well for the peaceable, industrious element.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            Good points here. I notice some WN types really romanticize the Japanese, largely for their sense of ethnic identity and their lack of diversity. I have been in Japan for ten years now and I wonder if these WN types really understand what these people are like.

            Generally well-behaved, obedient to be sure, but also stunningly lacking in initiative, creativity and curiosity. They view the world in a simple. binary manner and are terrified of change and variation.

            Now they are being eclipsed by China because the Japanese refuse to take chances and try anything new. The Koreans are starting to beat the Japanese in the electronics industry.

            Is this true even among the young people? I think the reason for this is the fear of failure and shame that it would bring to one’s family.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            You’re on the right track there. Saving face is crucial in Japanese society. Westerners are more likely to take a chance and risk failure whereas Japanese often prefer to stay quiet than risk making a mistake.

            And I see it among the young people as well. I work with teenagers and many simply sit there quietly and write down anything I say. I ask a question and get a stunning silence.

            Young adults also display a hesitation about trying new things. They simply wait for a leader (the oldest in the room) to tell them what to do.

            This is not necessarily a complaint on my part, merely an observation.

          • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

            The only reason Japanese immigrated to the US in the early 1900′s is that Japan was experiencing a population boom and the nation was getting crowded. So when Hawaii sugar plantations and other interests on the West Coast came calling and offering contracts to relocate, many did.

          • Bill

            Yes, it’s being “corrected”. With stolen technology from white nations. With jobs and industry transferred to China through Walmart type corporations. They still have a one child policy, and will jail you if you have more than one. They still leave female babies to die, more so even now, since they can only have ONE child by law and they want a boy child. They still have a sentence of summary execution with a bullet to the head. They are persecuting and murdering or imprisoning Christians wherever they find them. They are perhaps the biggest polluter on the planet. They have one of the most oppressive regimes on the planet. And they are the biggest threat to the free, white world ON the planet. As to Japan? They are the pirates of the seas, ignoring every sea treaty and convention as to harvesting species. They are driving various sea life to extinction. They encourage various forms of black market sales of endangered species so they can get a woodie. They are very much in to the sex slave trade for young girls, particularly white young girls. They, like the Chinese, don’t so much innovate as copy things developed from western nations. They don’t make it necessarily better, but they do make it cheaper due to a rigid system of indentured servitude to the corporations. They chinese are a little more thuggish in their approach to wages and labor – complain and you get thrown in prison or a work camp. Yes, the Asians are SO much better than whites. IQ isn’t everything. Culture and honor and integrity and innovativeness matter too. A respect for freedom for the individual is important too. A love of family and respect for the family structure is important too. Whites dominated the planet not by accident. They had ALL those things as well as high IQ. They only reason whites do NOT dominate every venue around the world these days is because liberal marxist socialist ideological idiots have done all they can to pit the third world against the white world. And because some perhaps well meaning, or perhaps blind, whites keep lauding the third world creatures as if they are something to emulate more so than white, european, christian culture.

          • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

            As far as one child policy in China, there are exceptions to that policy. A couple can have a second child if both parents were the only children in their families. Rural couples can have a second child if the first child is a girl. In order to have a child in China, a couple has to file an application for a birth permit. These permits are given to married couples only and single parenting is highly frowned upon.Once the permit has been granted, the parents can begin to try to conceive a child. The birth will include in the number of planned births allowed by the government. After birth, the baby can then be registered with the government. This would then allow the child to access education and health care and other state benefits.

          • OlderWoman

            Japanese have seen their one-child policy cause problems. There are more males than females. Consequently there is a shortage of women for them to marry. They acknowlege this could cause a significant drop in their population.

          • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

            Japanese have a very low birthrate. It is estimated that by 2020, there could be more elderly than young people. The reason for this is that young Japanese women are career oriented and Japanese men are more interested in gaming than sex.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            I will challenge part of this post. Some Japanese women have become more career oriented, but a large percentage of young adult women don’t want to get married and stay with the parents and spend their money on Gucci handbags or they get married and don’t want to work (yet still expect hubby to support them).

            The low birth rate is partially due to the high costs of raising children in Japan (school fees, piano lessons, etc.), but I also see rampant consumerism as a culprit as well.

            Generally low frequency of sexual activity doesn’t help, either. Many young men prefer video games and young women prefer shopping.

            This is true of the older generation but not those who were born in the 1990′s when China began to adopt a form of capitalism. This generation does not know what it means to go without. This generation has protested at Chinese factories for better working conditions and higher pay. This is something their parents and grandparents would never do.

          I’ve been married to one for the last six-and-a-half years, and I’ve worked closely with them and lived in the Far East. They’re different, which in some respects is good and in others bad.

          On a Japanese train recently, an adult male local passenger escorted a local young woman passenger by force into a train restroom, where he raped her. In spite of her hysterical crying while being abused, nobody on the car went to force him to stop it. If I’d been in that car, I’d have put the rapist out of the train at 120 mph. I think 200 mph would be better, but the shinkasen trains there don’t always go that fast.

          Any three of the men in that train car could have easily stopped the rape without badly hurting the perp, but they reckoned that was not their responsibility, even when they could all hear her sobbing.

          Superior?

        • APaige

          That middle where whites are must be the place where 98% of what makes the modern world is found. When you and others say that Asians are smart at math and science what you really are saying is that they are smart at WESTERN math and science. If it was Oriental math and science they would be reading a compass and sticking needles into the sick. In its entirety Western Civilization (white) is far superior-do you agree?

          • JohnEngelman

            Not “far superior,” moderately superior, but why quibble?

            Modern mathematics and IQ tests originated in the West. Orientals tend to be better at both than most whites. Negroes and Orientals are trying to learn Western civilization. Most Negroes can’t do it. Most Orientals can do it better than most white Gentiles.

          • Svigor

            Slightly inferior, actually. That’s why yellow societies are inferior to white societies. That’s why yellows are all dying to move to white societies, and whites aren’t interested in moving to yellow societies.

            Sean Love, 27, traded a job as a medical research assistant in an “understaffed and underfunded” lab at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore for a similar job in Singapore.

            China becoming scientific superpower

            Centuries after it led the world in technological prowess, China has barged back into the ranks of the great powers in science.

            By John Pomfret

            The Washington Post

            SHENZHEN, China — Last year, Zhao Bowen was part of a team that cracked the genetic code of the cucumber. These days, he’s probing the genetic basis for human IQ.

            Zhao is 17.

            Centuries after it led the world in technological prowess — think gunpowder, irrigation and the printed word — China has barged back into the ranks of the great powers in science. With the brashness of a teenager, China’s scientists and inventors are driving a resurgence in potentially world-changing research…

            A decade ago, no one considered China a scientific competitor. Its best and brightest agreed and fled China in a massive brain drain to university research labs at Harvard, Stanford and MIT.

            But over the past five years, Western-educated scientists and gutsy entrepreneurs have conducted a rear-guard action, battling China’s hidebound bureaucracy to establish research institutes and companies. Those have lured home scores of Western-trained Chinese researchers dedicated to transforming the People’s Republic of China into a scientific superpower…

            In May, for example, a supercomputer produced in China was ranked as the world’s second-fastest machine at an international conference in Germany. China is now in fourth place, tied with Germany, with the most supercomputers. China has jumped to second place — up from 14th in 1995 — behind the United States in the number of research articles published in scientific and technical journals worldwide…

            In 2007, Chinese geneticists discovered vast differences in the genetic makeup of Africans, Asians and Caucasians.

            Hate to tell you think but the USA genetic scientists figured this out way before hand. They just can’t talk about it.

            At least the Chinese will talk about it, that should be fun.

          • SLCain

            “Centuries after it led the world in technological prowess, China has barged back into the ranks of the great powers in science.”

            China could not “barge back” into those ranks, because it was not, historically, in them. Imperial China had lots of clever inventors, but it did not have science. Science is an entirely western invention.

          • JohnEngelman

            The Western contribution to science was to test assertions experimentally. Aristotle claimed that a ten pound weight fell ten times faster than a one pound weight. Galileo tested that assertion at the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and found that it was false.

            The experimental method began during the Italian Renaissance. Nevertheless, by then mathematics, which is considered the king of science, had been developed at different times by different civilizations. Mayan mathematicians understood the use of zero before Western mathematicians adopted Arabic numbers, which had actually been invented in India.

            Mayan astronomers were also able to accurately predict eclipses of the sun and the moon.

            Neolithic farmers learned enough about biology to breed domestic plants and animals.

            Everything Western scientists discovered Orientals are learning. They are learning quickly because of their superior intelligence.

          • SLCain

            Mayans noticing a few things about the sky was not science. The scientific method was developed in the early modern era in Europe. Full stop. Anything short of that was not science (including the ancient Greeks). What you blathered on about only served to make my point.

            Don’t lecture me, you vapid ninny. I’ve forgotten more about science than you’ll ever know.

          • SLCain

            Why, thank you. Yes you are right, I meant contemptible. But contemptuous fits you too.

            You are both contemptible and contemptuous.

            Ninny.

          • JohnEngelman

            Is that all you can do? Is your mind completely empty of intriguing facts and original insights?

          • Nathanwartooth

            If you think the Asians are superior to Whites I would like you to meet a group of people who outshine both so hard that they literally run the world.

            Except they are mostly a group of parasites, living off of other civilizations until they are removed from the host.

            But the fact that they have a higher IQ and control more wealth must make you concede that they are superior to your precious Asians, correct?

          • UK Expat

            US Asians are smarter than the average Caucasian American, of course they are, only the elite of those countries could EVER afford to come to the west for an education. I just wonder how balanced Rushton’s work was; as a physical scientist who reads AmRen (etc.) frequently, and who reads any linked publications, it is very very easy to poke big holes in social science research methods. I suspect Rushton’s work is relatively good though.

            As an STEM, UK “Ivy” educated student, then Ph.D. student, then PostDoc, and now US Professor, I have had the opportunity to meet all kinds of individuals. While I have found these golden spooned Asians to be particularly bright and hardworking, they do lack in the areas of originality (generating scientific ideas) and creativity (solving problems). What I have found is that they make fantastic grad students and postdocs, because they work very hard, but they do not bring ideas to the table, they will not step out to try anything unless it has already been set in stone. They have a narrow view and field of experience … i.e. trained to do something specific like meet a test mark.

            Something amusing! There is a faculty in our dept. who brings
            visiting faculty and students over from Chinese universities all the
            time, sometimes to stay for months. Many times I have visited my labs
            and seen them in there asking about what we do, how and why.

            On the other hand, I despair of American grad students … they don’t want to work to achieve something; education has become a childhood extension rather than a training for scientific inquiry and a career! In some ways I cannot blame them, why the hell would they go through 6-10 years of grad school when they can (or could, a few years ago) achieve a similar standard of living with a degree; or even, if they are good enough to excel in Chemistry/Physics, they might as well go on to medicine and do much better for themselves. Somehow we all became coddled and relaxed…

          • k8

            I think that it’s a false stereotype that Asians aren’t creative. They’ve been writing poetry and music for thousands of years after all. In general, I think most Asian people just aren’t comfortable with the idea of standing out in a crowd, hence they don’t voice any radical new ideas. Even if they think of new ways to do things, they tend to keep them to themselves and follow the rules as to not appear shameless. I’m sure as their culture becomes more individualistic, we’ll start to see inventions coming out from that part of the world.

          • Svigor

            Boring poetry and music. You don’t have to be particularly creative to write a boring, crappy poem or piece of music.

          • Joseph

            Lesser individual creativity and uniformity is in their genes as surely as risk-taking among black Africans. It is not an all-or-none deal, just more and less. Even in Japan, Korea and China they want to hear American music and see American movies. Many excel at western (European) classical music and even American folk -as musicians, but not composers.

            The world does not spend much time or money to hear performances of the shamisen or the koto, zheng, sitar or conga -because they are not that complex or interesting. They *mostly* like European and American music.

            *Generally*

          • Wytcats

            “American” movies are really mostly “Jewish” movies, made by Jews living in America with (mostly) white brainwashed Euro Gentile people acting out Jewish scripts.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            But even their creativity is within narrow parameters. Westerners often use the cliche “think outside the box” whereas I find Japanese creativity is figuring out new ways to fit into the box as it were.

            Their poetry is extremely rigid and narrow. Haiku is a form of poetry that has three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. The Japanese created a large body of poetry based on that very strict pattern.

            Even their home heating technology is essentially modern versions of heating devices they used in the 17th century. They don’t heat the whole room, merely a small space in the room. New technology, old paradigm.

            Side note: I don’t see the East Asians becoming more individualistic. Like going into a Chinese kitchen and trying to make pizza, the ingredients just aren’t there.

          • Luca

            I think culture has a lot to do with what you’ve explained. What good is intelligence in a society where you are taught you cannot speak out of turn, cannot be disrespectful and cannot bring shame upon your family (and ancestors) if you break any rules. In school they are taught to study vigorously, listen to the teachers, and have strict discipline. The same with the business atmosphere and political structure in these countries. This is one of the reasons entrepreneurs migrate to the US (used to anyway). In the mother countries they can’t get ahead. They are stifled by taxes, regulations, layers of middlemen, payoffs and difficulties getting their ideas and products to market unless they happen to work for a major company who then owns that idea. Some of these Asian countries also instill employees with a sense of tribalism and discourage individuals from thinking of themselves but to think of what is good for the company and the country. Hence, the individual is confronted with a series of brick walls in the home, in school and in the workplace.

          • JH

            I have found Israeli (not Jewish Americans) grad students in the hard sciences to be the best, of the foreign grad students. They combine the hard work of Asians, with the creativity of Americans. They are also very mature, perhaps due to army service.

          • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

            American students who go to grad school for 6-10 years would incur a lot of student loan debt and they fear that they would not be able to repay the loans. Most medical students come out of medical school owing 100k or more in student loan debt. They know that they will be able to repay the loans.

            Asians in America also know “celebrate diversity” is a cruel joke, albeit whites are fast catching on.

          • Svigor

            Well said. Yellows are so conformist, they just let problems fester. “Not their problem.” This is why yellow societies are so backward in terms of freedom, rights, transparency, corruption, etc., and why white societies are superior.

            But try explaining that to a guy who thinks IQ and other psychometrics and lines from a racial balance sheet somehow trump the simple fact that white societies are superior to yellow societies, and yellows and whites act accordingly (with the former doing everything they can to get into the latter’s countries, and the latter staying well away from the former’s countries).

          • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

            The reason why Asian students excel in math and science is that these subjects do not require language skills to succeed. Math and science require formulas that have to be memorized, which Asians are good at.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            Based on my own experience teaching a foreign language in Japan, I certainly see that pattern. The Japanese do well at “right answer” subjects such as math, but really struggle with “fuzzy” subjects such as languages.

            In short, memorizing multiplication tables does build math skills whereas memorizing grammar does not always equate to proficiency in speaking a language.

        There is a large high school in a city near here called James Logan High School. They have one school for the whole city. It was designed that way so they could have the best sports team in the area. They import a lot of blacks from Oakland and San francisco. There are also a lot of Asian and Mexican gangs that go to that school. It is a small city and some students go the entire 4 years without meeting all the other student. Their academic scores are poor. Their sports scores are nothing special.

        Here is their demographics: Logan’s ethnic demographics for the previous year consisted of 5% Pacific Islander, 23% Asian, 20% Filipino, 30% Hispanic, 10% African American, 10% White and 3% Other.

    In this day and age ( I love that phrase), this isn’t a problem. Just set up a quota. Every time a black or other minority is suspended/expelled/or otherwise punished, just suspend/expell/or otherwise punish a White male student without regard to whether he’s done anything wrong or not. The lesson for the White boy being “Life isn’t fair.” But at the same time, tell the boy and his parents he’s being punished to fulfil the quota. That ought to add a few people to the White Nationalist cause I’d think

    • The__Bobster

      I remember one school trying this and it backfired on them. Because they couldn’t expel enough White kids to meet the quota, they wound up arresting the Bantus.

        Where I grew up, this was not far from the reality in the newly integrated schools of the 1970′s. For the first couple of years the schools tried holding blacks to white standards. When they shamed into changing their ways by the local media and others, we suddenly went to a system known as “Discipline quotas”. Tyrone could punch out his teacher while little Mary could drop her pencil on the floor and both would be sent to the principals office. My elementary school was approximately 60 W/ 40 B in the mid to late 1970′s. It is now 95+% black with a few Hispanics to make up the difference.

            I’m not for making it illegal but I would be for people having more information about it.

            Women should know that having a kid with a Black will result on average with a child that has a lower IQ, is more aggressive, achieves less and has less of a chance of growing up with a dad than if she had a child with a White.

            I know a woman who had a child with a Black and she regrets it to this day. The Black kid reached 11 years old and she just had another kid with a White guy. This is because the Black kid has a really low IQ (it’s really sad talking to someone with a low IQ), is aggressive and is failing in school.

            She wanted to have a kid that wasn’t going to fail at life so she had to start over.

            I think Clarence Thomas has done a good job. Having said that however, it was pretty clear back *then* even, that the Depublicans were doing their damnedest to find the elusive “conservative black” to show off, just as they tried with Powell and some others. It is not that they could have found no statistically more likely white guy to populate this job. He is/was part of the window dressing so of course they looked the other way on this issue.

            Logical Fallacies.

            Description of Personal Attack

            A personal attack is committed when a person substitutes abusive remarks for evidence when attacking another person’s claim or claims. This line of “reasoning” is fallacious because the attack is directed at the person making the claim and not the claim itself.
            http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/personal-attack.html

            ————–

            Description of Straw Man

            The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person’s actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position. This sort of “reasoning” has the following pattern:

            Person A has position X.

            Person B presents position Y (which is a distorted version of X).

            Person B attacks position Y.

            Therefore X is false/incorrect/flawed.

            This sort of “reasoning” is fallacious because attacking a distorted version of a position simply does not constitute an attack on the position itself. One might as well expect an attack on a poor drawing of a person to hurt the person.

Let me say this for emphasis: I have an enormous admiration for Jews and Orientals for reasons I have clearly explained.Let me explain again. I admire intelligence. I admire obedience to the law. I admire sexual responsibility.

            If my high regard for Jews and Orientals bothers you, compose rational, civil arguments why I should not feel that way, or ignore my comments.

            The only reason I give you far more attention than you deserve is that you keep following me around and posting your silly insults.

        Vouchers are like kryptonite to the educrats and will never be allowed on any widespread basis. They also know that the races will spontaneously segregate and this will spoil the program. They don’t want the nightmare to end because then we would not require their “help”.

        • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

          Vouchers are like kryptonite to the good white parents who pay good money to send their kids to private schools in order avoid the heavily black and increasingly Hispanic public fool systems, only to see the same black and Hispanic morons who turned the once good public schools of the area into blackboard hells come armed with vouchers (and probably also a Tec-9) into the private schools.

          • OlderWoman

            There’s no sure way of escaping blacks is there? No matter how you try to control your life and environment, liberals find a way to disrupt it. Meanwhile, they escape to their white communities. Tim Wise comes to mind. He lives 20 mins. away from me in Brentwood.

          • Joseph

            I can tell you that as one of those parents I tired of paying double for my kids to go to school to stay out of the public system. Vouchers would have been a good deal for me and the people I know. Private schools can still set their own standards for admission and retention so if people are a demonstrated problem -they go.

          • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

            But…with the private school taking Federal or state money, eventually they wouldn’t be allowed to set their own admission and retention or expulsion standards.

          • rebellisMMXII

            You are correct QD. Once a voucher system is in place, private schools will not be safe places lacking diversity. If the school accepts money, the government owns them…if they don’t, then in short order they will be forced to accept the cash through federal discrimination lawsuits. Then standards will be dictated, discipline monitored etc. I don’t have children but I know the voucher options are poison.

          • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

            Catholic schools in St. Louis that accepted what little voucher programs were available from the Feds for what few educational services they provided (mainly summer school for “tubbled yoots”) had to cover up their religious statues in the schools. That’s just one small example.

    Of course, the impression the da-pa’tmint uv ejookayshun wants to give hand-wringing DWLs is that all the precious black dears are just chewing gum, quietly whispering to their desk neighbor, or sleeping in class–all minor rule violations at worst. It’s just that all those meany RAYCISS! school administrators are picking on “students of color” at 3.5 times the rate that they are picking on Whites.

    Reality check: a larger percentage of blacks break the rules, AND the rules that they break tend to be more serious–like, worthy-of-prosecution-and-prison-time serious. Sorry, but black students as a group do NOT behave nearly as well as White students as a group–which is exactly the same racial pattern you see in the wider society. Take it from a White man who attended a nearly 70% black high school for four years (with the other 30% being White).

    Just as an aside, this fact was quite vividly (and awkwardly) illustrated during graduation practice, when the entire graduating class realized that there was only one black honor graduate in the graduating class of 200+ people (nearly all the other 20+ honor graduates were White).

        Rules are written by the race of people who formed their civilization. No race on earth, except for the white race, is expected to create a society that is hostile to themselves, so that minority, alien races living among them can be comfortable at the expense of the dominant host population. And once the aliens are “accommodated”, they show no propensity to return the court-ordered “favor.”

      Certainly the DOE will continue to lower the standards for “students of color”. The tragedy is that they will also drag whites down along with them….But i guess it’s some kind of step forward – into some heretofore undiscovered circle of hell – that they have discovered that young girls should be disciplined much more than they have been.

        That’s a point crucial to understanding this article. Most people read “disabled” and think wheelchair or severe mental retardation. In reality, many “disabled” public school students have one of the vanity “disorders” that the quack shrinks have dreamed up. School districts have a financial incentive to classify as many students as possible as being “disabled,” because they get extra money.

    The
    Government of Ontario passed the Safe Schools Act back in the 1990s.
    It mandated automatic expulsion for any student who committed an act of
    violence against another student or member of staff.

    The Act was repealed in 2007. The reason? Blacks were, oddly
    enough, many times more likely to run afoul of the zero tolerance
    policy. This prompted appeals to the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

    So. A school should be a safe place. Students and teachers should
    not be afraid of violence. I think this is a very basic expectation.

    The problem wasn’t with the policy. The problem was with black
    criminality. With blacks themselves. It doesn’t just magically and
    mysteriously happen.

    Other posters have noted the differential between white and black
    crime rates. I won’t bother adding the facts about differences in white
    and black achievement at all grade levels, except to point out that
    every single experiment of any meaningful scale to improve black
    achievement fails. Integration in to white schools? Failure. Hiring
    qualified black teachers to be ‘role models’? Failure. Desparately
    hiring under- or un-qualified blacks as teachers to reflect the local
    demographic neighbourhood? Failure. Eliminate allegedly
    culturally-biased testing? Failure. Celebrating copycat ‘inventions’
    by a long-dead black man during the 28 days of February? Failure.
    Enriched learning programmes? The skills gap *increases*.

    Ms Delisle and the Left need to stop peddling their soft soap and
    snake oil. Blacks are violent. Blacks are, on average, far less able
    to achieve academic standards which are considered acceptable
    requirements for whites or asians.

    The movement now is for blacks to be taught in all-black schools.
    You know, the ones that were declared illegal in Brown v. Board of
    Education.

    That’s the Left for you. Not only constantly running in circles, but this time coming full circle.

    ““When African-American students are more than 3 ½ times as likely to be suspended or expelled as their white peers,”

    Because they are 200 times more likely to do something that deserves suspension.

    So what is the solution; increase the amount of whites that are suspended?

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Some schools are already doing that. They won’t suspend Jamal for beating a kid half to death, but they will suspend Mary for bringing an asprin to school. It helps them keep their black/white suspension rates closer together.

      • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

        The main question we need to ask is where are the parents? They should be disciplining their kids, not the school. One thing that the school does with these kids, especially boys is to put them on Ritalin and other similar drugs because they have not developed adequate teaching methods to help boys learn.

        • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

          And also, a Ritalin taker is by definition an “ADD” “sufferer,” which means presto, another “disabled” student and more Federal money.

  • bubo

    Once again, Asians are left off of the “people of color” victim pyramid. I suspect they are suspended in rates even lower than whites. If it’s said once it’s said a thousand times. This dynamic is seen in every school across the nation. Blacks suspended most, followed by Hispanics, followed by Whites then finally Asians. Amazingly enough this also follows the distribution of mean IQ. Groundbreaking stuff I know.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Yep. No matter what it is that is being measured, you can know before even reading the article/study/etc that it will go Asians > Whites > Hispanics > Blacks. This pattern is like a force of nature; it cannot be stopped.

    • http://twitter.com/LavMenace Crystal Lee Evans

      If an Asian kid was suspended, the kid would be punished at home, which is worse than what the school could do and they know it. Their parents expect more from them than the schools do.

    “This school-to-prison pipeline has moved scores of young people from classrooms to courtroom. A schoolyard fight that used to warrant a trip to the principal’s office can now lead to a trip to the booking station and a judge,” Durbin said.

    Schoolyard fight (liberal definition) an 18 year old black football player beating a frail freshman so badly he’s permanently disfigured. Just a trip to the black principal and all is forgiven.

    Meanwhile a white student brings an allergy tablet or an aspirin to class and is expelled.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    I went to a “diverse” high school. Black students, both male and female, are treated with FAR more leniency than white students. Hispanic students are as well, though not quite to the same degree.

    I remember one time in Algebra, two black males were trading drugs in the back of the class. The teacher noticed and simply told them to put it away and do that after school. Had they been white students, an infraction like that would have meant instant suspension, if not a transfer to another school.

    Anyone who did not attend school within the last~15 years, and with diversity, cannot imagine what it is like to attempt to get a proper education in that type of environment. If your class has more than one average black male (there were some who were quite obviously on the far right of their bell curve and acted civilly and properly), the teacher is guaranteed to spend at least 1/4 of the class time on discipline. If there’s 3 or more average black males, that time will be raised to 1/2 of the class time.

    There’s not nearly enough suspensions and expulsions going on, and the ones paying for it are (as usual) the working class white children whose parents can’t afford private school.

      Those black males probably came from two parent homes and had a strong father who would not put up with nonsense.

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      After the fake welfare reform bill of 1996, SSI was the fastest growing Federal budget line item between then and 9/11, and has been quickly growing again in the Obama era. What obviously happened is that many households time limited out of the replacement for AFDC made the lateral move to SSI, based on some “disability” with themselves or their kids. And yes, low IQ was sometimes used as grounds, but more often, it was one of the designer quack psych disorders. In the cases of low IQ being used, I would like to know how it was proven: Public schools generally haven’t done IQ tests in a long time, because they don’t like the results.

    The only way to protect the civil rights of white, and Asian, students is by separating them from black/Hispanic students. In other words, we need segregation. Unfortunately, the powers that be care nothing about the civil rights of whites or Asians.

    http://www.jewamongyou.wordpress.com

  • Diamond_Lil

    It’s been my experience that most white boys and any Asians, vastly outnumbered in urban, minority-dominated schools, keep to themselves, are quite subdued and rarely act out so as to stay under the radar. If they are caught doing something wrong, it’s because they were sleeping in class, and in suspension cases, they get caught smoking pot or dealing drugs. Suspension cases for Blacks and Latinos, on the other hand, are more often a result of destruction of school property, or getting in teacher’s faces cursing and calling them various offensive names, acting in a belligerent manner by hitting the desk, wall or throwing down a textbook and completely shutting down the lesson or by threatening bodily harm, beating or sexually harassing another student or staff.

    Instead of suspending the hard-core problems, the schools should just call 911 and let the police handle things. A thorough pepper-spraying followed by a beat-down with batons is so much fairer to N’DeShawntavious than a week at home, after all.

    The other edge to the sword the Department ob de Edumacation is brandishing is that some states (California) have made home-schooling illegal. The result is that unless you are wealthy enough to afford private school tuition, your child will be sent to a public school that the African Occupation Government is deliberately making unsafe.

    This “problem” is the genesis of zero tolerance policies. If they bust Sally for having an aspirin, that’s a drug bust, the same as Dontavius with a rock of crack. Devandre, caught with a gun, is no more guilty than Page, caught with nail clippers.
