‘Racial Discrepancy’ Madness Spreads

Robert Weissberg, The American Thinker, March 15, 2012

I recently suggested that our secretary of education, Arne Duncan, had his brain hacked by enemies of the United States.  As proof I offered his bizarre reaction to a report recounting racial discrepancies in school discipline.  I argued, for example, that forcibly equalizing discipline across racial lines would devastate racially mixed schools, with the biggest losers being decent African-American students, who typically lack a safer school option.

The capturing of brains may be worse than I initially suspected.  A PBS Newshour show also took up how blacks were being disproportionally punished.  The host (Jeffrey Brown) interviewed two distinguished educators.  Christopher Edley is dean of Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law and co-chair of the U.S. Department of Education’s Equity and Excellence Commission, and Chester Finn is the president of the Fordham Institute, a well-regarded conservative think-tank that covers K-12 education (Finn also served in the Reagan administration).

Let me summarize how these experts, including a bona-fide conservative, view racial discrepancies in school discipline.

Taking a “civil rights perspective,” Dean Edley implied that where there is smoke, there’s fire — these statistics reflect racial discrimination.  More important, these gaps suggest that “we are not providing equal educational opportunity.”  After all, if schools cannot eliminate disorder, how can they impart knowledge to all students?  And, Dean Edley continues, by kicking out students, we are pushing them away from academic commitment.  We need alternatives to discipline — for example, training teachers in classroom management and interventions, plus upgraded skills to understand the lives of unruly students.  Civil rights means developing school interventions to eliminate both violence and academic inadequacy.

Perhaps only in today’s PC-dominated academy does a dean of a Law School reflexively equate plain-to-see divergence in behavior with difficult-to-prove accusations of discrimination.  Dean Edley surely knows that blacks are more likely than whites to be convicted of criminal offenses and that this gap cannot be blamed on “discrimination.”  And why should frequent expulsions signify a school’s academic insufficiency?  This is a mind-boggling non sequitur, given that there is nothing in these data about academic performance.  Tough discipline can just as easily be taken as proof of academic commitment.  If schools let up on blacks to equalize suspensions, would students suddenly become smarter or more industrious?  Kicking out troublemakers would improve overall academic achievement.  To be impolite, the stupidity of Edley’s “logic” is breathtaking — and from a distinguished Berkeley professor, no less.

Chester Finn begins on a reasonable note — racism is not necessarily the cause of this gap, and it would be a mistake to keep a disruptive student in class.  Moreover, he adds, some of this discrepancy may reflect excessive enforcement of a zero-tolerance policy.  But, this reasonableness soon ends, and what began as school discipline problem quickly becomes a “let’s fix society” enterprise (unequal punishment reflects “larger societal issues”).  So to eradicate school misbehavior, we must fix troubled families, even troubled neighborhoods — and, for good measure, repair America’s criminal justice system.  In other words, Finn is a self-defined conservative happy to launch a new Great Society so as to eliminate statistical discrepancies whose meaning is uncertain.

Neither expert even raises the possibility that unequal outcomes might be justified and therefore not a problem requiring budget-busting attention.  Both unconsciously embrace the radical egalitarian agenda.  Nor do Edley and Finn broach the possibility that keeping kids in school who don’t want to be there explains their disruptive behavior, and allowing legal, peaceable exits would instantly reduce suspensions and expulsions.  Nor do they acknowledge that a few troublemakers can “infect” scores of other students, so better to get rid of the ringleaders before matters deteriorate.

Unfortunately, this nonsensical thinking is hardly the worst example.  Deborah J. Vagins, senior legislative counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington legislative office, interpreted these same unequal disciplinary data to show that troublesome black and disabled students are being “pushed out of school,” often into a life of crime.  It never occurs to the ACLU expert that retention at all costs “teaches” the miscreant that bad behavior goes unpunished and may thereby promote future criminality.  Students don’t deserve punishment; school administrators just “push them out” into a life of crime.  No wonder such students are often called “at risk” — they are “at risk” from being pushed out the school door.

The existence of radical egalitarianism is hardly surprising.  What does one expect from NPR or the ACLU?  What draws our ire is, scant exceptions aside, the smothering nature of this ideology.  Even a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed by an editorial board member on this subject left the underlying “gaps-are-bad” framework unchallenged.  The existence of unequal punishment was instead used to justify the need for “more school choice,” as if school choice has anything to do with racial differences in punishment (actually, school choice would permit miscreants to travel from school to school, systematically destroying the entire system).

Today’s civil rights agenda would obviously be unrecognizable to those who fought the earlier battles for equal resources and then, beginning in the 1960s, school integration.  Both goals have generally been achieved to the extent practically possible.  But today’s civil rights champions just refuse to stop pursuing “civil rights,” even if this pursuit harms blacks (and equalizing discipline is injurious).  Something is deeply wrong when supposed friends of African-Americans sacrifice them to an egalitarian fantasy, but I’ll leave that foible for another occasion.

To be fair, I cannot statistically document the extent to which pernicious radical egalitarianism has penetrated the brains of our nation’s leaders (including self-described conservatives).  Though this particular “gap” study was done by the Civil Rights division of the Department of Education, the Obama Department of Justice has waged a similar campaign (see here).  And the gaps-are-bad mentality is undoubtedly the sacred orthodoxy in schools of education and elsewhere in today’s education establishment.  That barely anyone, including “conservatives,” seems alarmed by the attack is perhaps its most distressing feature.  We have made ourselves defenseless.

  • I recently suggested that our secretary of education, Arne Duncan, had his brain hacked by enemies of the United States.

    Not that complicated.  An enemy hired him as his Education Secretary.

    I argued, for example, that forcibly equalizing discipline across racial
    lines would devastate racially mixed schools, with the biggest losers
    being decent African-American students, who typically lack a safer
    school option.

    Wrong.  The biggest loser would be white students in black-heavy schools, who would have to endure more physical violence and a lower quality education.

    Chester Finn begins on a reasonable note — racism is not necessarily the
    cause of this gap, and it would be a mistake to keep a disruptive
    student in class.  Moreover, he adds, some of this discrepancy may
    reflect excessive enforcement of a zero-tolerance policy.

    Zero-Tolerance (aka Zero Thought) was implemented to suspend more whites for tickey tack offenses in order to even out the racial stats.

      So to eradicate school misbehavior, we must fix troubled families,
    even troubled neighborhoods — and, for good measure, repair
    America’s criminal justice system.

    What if the suspension gap, the troubled families, the troubled neighborhoods and the “broken” CJ system all have the same underlying cause?

    Deborah J. Vagins, senior legislative counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington legislative office, interpreted these
    same unequal disciplinary data to show that troublesome black and
    disabled students are being “pushed out of school,” often into a life of
    crime.

    Sounds to me they already started their “life of crime” when they did something to get bounced out of school.

    Today’s civil rights agenda would obviously be unrecognizable to those
    who fought the earlier battles for equal resources and then, beginning
    in the 1960s, school integration.

    It would be “unrecognizable” because they wouldn’t think they would succeed this much this quickly.

  • B

    Just compare the disciplinary rates between mostly black schools run by black teachers and black administrators to schools run by whites with a white school body. I bet you will see is what is seen in the criminal justice system – that blacks are about ten times more disruptive than whites. Can’t blame that on racial bias.

    This is it.  People will do anything to avoid the inevitable–Whites are smarter than non-Asian minorities–thus what we get is egalitarian arguments which make excuses for low-IQ trouble-making future criminals at the expense of the honest and hard working teachers who actually want to make a difference.

    – Robert Weissberg, The American Thinker, March 15, 2012     
         
    I am certain that Dean Edley has never attended a predominately black public school. I doubt that he has even talked to teachers who have tried to teach in such schools, or spent a day siting in one of their class rooms. 
     
    We should not expect teachers in inner city schools to have the social skills of television talk show hosts, or heroes of Hollywood movies who manage to turn inner city thugs into masters of calculus and Latin.  We should give those besieged teachers the authority to permanently expel students who violently resist education, while violently interfering with the education of others. 

  • The problem here is lack of discipline and this is reflective of a community made up of single mothers who are too busy doing other things but disciplining their kids. Back in the day, if you messed up in school, you got spanked by the teacher and also you got spanked at home. This type of discipline is missing.

    •  no amount of discipline can correct the sociopath nature of the black race

  • “We need alternatives to discipline — for example, training teachers in classroom management and interventions, plus upgraded skills to understand the lives of unruly students.  Civil rights means developing school interventions to eliminate both violence and academic inadequacy.”

        Therein lies part of the problem. I have matriculated at both predominately black and predominately white schools. Guess which one had armed security guards? Why do people think it is normal that schools look like prison?

  • White males have been assigned a special duty,that is to be the foil for the Wise Black Man. They–and only they–can fulfill this special role!

  • I’ve noticed similar trends, except there are plenty of latinos being represented, the chosen people of course. White males are non-existent.

  • It is very frustrating to see otherwise educated Whites making up excuses for the failures of the black race. Then I realized that these educated White folks have no choice but to fabricate excuse after excuse, because the alternative, telling the truth means admitting that blacks are an inherently inferior race. It’s kinda like stepping on a thorn and blaming your feet for the pain, but eventually you accept that you need to start wearing shoes

  • So long as the theory that all races are equally talented in all fields prevails, the Left will see any deviation from proportional representation as discrimination.  This is why they demand the discrimination called affirmative action.  Quotas are the demands.  Obama and Holder and the entire Administration accept these foolish theories.
    This theory produces nothing but injustice for whites and others who do well.  It simply enhances hatred to those who are raised beyond their abilities.
    So long as the liberals dominate, nothing except injustice can be expected.

  • Well, you can talk about every single race and ethnicity here other than the Jews, it is official.

    What do you expect from an organization that had a rabbi as its keynote speaker for its very first conference? Is it because Jared Taylor is married to an ethnic Jew and American Renaissance “Takes no position on the Jewish question” I wonder?

    If that is the case, maybe lay off re-publishing articles by people named Weissburg and having 1000 anti-Muslim and anti-Arab articles for every Jew one. Notice that? How this place has articles about the ills and pathologies of every group except Jews?

    Just what is the game here? What is AmRen doing when it censors comments and refuses to talk about “The Jewish Question” in its own words?

      Thanks for the heads-up; I didn’t know.

  • MikeofAges

    You ought to know by, affirmative action for poor white people mean putting more of them in the hands of the criminal justice system.

    After the death penalty resumed in the United States in the late 1970s, the first two men executed were Gary Gilmore in Utah and John Spenkelink in Florida.

    Gilmore deserved what he got. Spenkelink murdered another ex-convict he had been hanging around with, apparently in retaliation for unwanted sexual advances. It was premeditated, not on the spur of the moment. But probably not really a death penalty case. His major qualification was that he was white and had gnarly-sounding Eastern European surname. His execution was in all likelihood fast tracked so that the first criminals executed as the death penalty was reestablished were white.

    Apparently, Spenkelink was offered the opportunity to plead guilty to second degree murder in exchange for a life sentence, but turned down the plea bargain in spite of the fact that there was no possible doubt of his guilt.

    Both of these cases have elements of state-sponsored suicide in their history. Some have alleged that Gilmore committed his crime, a double murder in the course of a robbery, specifically so that he would be put to death and escape his highly troubled life. Gilmore refused to appeal his sentence. He possessed a degree of literary talent, was an effective self-promoter, and became a kind of folk hero. His final words before he was shot by a firing squad were the t-shirt friendly “Let’s do it.”

    Ten of the 12 women executed since 1977 are white. Two were black.

    Affirmative action for whites by now has come to include threatened or actual prosecution for crimes that don’t even exist, such and the Tawana Brawley and Duke Lacrosse cases, the latter involving young white men presumably from upper middle class backgrounds.

    • KenelmDigby

      Actually, ‘Spenkelink’ is a Dutch surname.

      • MikeofAges

         Good to know, and if I ever tell the story again, I will note that. But it still sounds like a “gnarly Eastern European name”. Not to mention, I always thought that men whose name started with letter “s” and contained the letter “k” were preferentially recruited for this important public program. LOL.

  • They probably don’t have to worry about calculus text purchases very often, for the simple reason that calculus texts don’t get used very often, and therefore don’t get damaged or worn too quickly.

    Bon tells me that Algebra II textbooks used in most southern California schools almost never have any graffiti.  You put 2 and 2 together…

  • “There is not a truth existing which I fear… or would wish unknown to the whole world.””But what about the Jews and their crucial role in culturally and financially undermining and destroying Whites?”Comment RemovedNot talking about the Jews, when you print articles written by them, is absurd. It is race realism on training wheels.

  • better_times

    It is ridiculous.  An ad with a corn-rowed black science student operating a robot that performs the useless task of throwing a cup says it all. Ah, yes , all those black folks loving science. Wasn’t science the last refuge of the white nerd? Or the black master of personal finance schooling his moronic white neighbor, who is literally teetering up on a ladder behind a hedge, on how to manage his money.  Do these companies not realize that these images are as absurd as whites in blackface? Tyrannies typically use art filled with twisted lies as propaganda but people always know it’s horse manure. 

    I am fighting this battle with dollars – the withholding of them from Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock, et al & advertisers who insult me. Also, a kind of asymmetric attack can work against these lumbering, huge organizations & that is a guerrilla campaign that is really  old school. Graffiti, handbills, notes scrawled wherever.

    It’s everywhere in “education.” There are stores that sell educational supplies to  kids–their catalogues always feature a tiny smattering of white kids and the supplies portray non-white kids almost all the time. And you can see that it’s very deliberate. A recent K-Mart commercial displayed a black male with a beautiful white (blonde) female; this is totally gratuitous. Again, deliberate. I saw this visual brainwashing start in the ’80’s. This is how to destroy–through  the eye. Almost anything can become permissible this way.

      “A recent K-Mart commercial displayed a black male with a beautiful white (blonde) female; this is totally gratuitous.”
      I see that often in children’s advertising. When they use adults for  this agenda, I find it tiresome and mildly offensive. When they use children in these pairings, that is extremely offensive. Liberals: keep children out of your sexual agendas! You have crossed the line at this point!

  • saxonsun

  • occa0577

    “In TV commercials, the black man is always an authoritative figure who is dignified while the dufus Whitey bounces around in confusion until the black gives the answer to the problem and solution to the emergency.”

    You must be talking about the latest Allstate insurance commercial. There spokesman, a black man with a strong voice, is on a construction site. All of the black men on the site very smart, but the white guy is bouncing around a jack hammer like an idiot and called “one stupid dude”.  The anti-white racism was blatant. This of course is very common, as you mentioned. The media portrays us like this badly because they hate us. Also, they know that we will not collectively attack them, either legally or physically. Blacks of course would attack them collectively for any perceived racism. This is one of the many reasons I’ve cancelled cable and refuse to watch new movies. (though my immediate family prefers to sit in front of their TVs half drunk and drooling). 

    We may be “irrelevant” , but we do have most of the money, and provide most of the jobs. We must collectively boycott media and products that portray whites in a hateful way. They assume that we are either irrelavant or that we don’t care. We do care, and we will act. We might not through rocks and bottles at them, but we can collectively make them go bankrupt.

  • Professionally and academically, the Jews are overachievers who
    commit virtually no crime, contribute gargantuan sums in tax revenues
    and philanthropy.

    Subtract the Jewish contribution from the arts and sciences to
    Western civilization over the past 200 years. We would be living in a
    completely different world.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     
    Not realistic. Jews ARE overachievers, no doubt. But, so are some other peoples. For instance, Italians have, from ca. 1300 to 1600 done more than Jews in their entire history, regarding creativity.

    A black will pull a knife on you and take a wallet. A Jew takes a job, a house, everything. They have financially gutted entire nations.

    Look at who wanted Iraq and Afghanistan, those wars. How many tens of thousands of whites were maimed and killed for that? Look at who is crying for war against Iran and think who would get killed. It isn’t a random assault.

  • Maybe charter schools in the South are different, but in most places, they’re more or less  “Afrocentric” mumbo jumbo, or something that’s meant to appeal to blacks.

  • mikejones91

    I see it everyday. Blacks are Disproportionately  OVER-represented in contrast to their ACTUAL population. “Equality” will be “achieved” when 14% of the population, accounts for 50% of everything. Hispanics are “under-represented” because they don’t complain NEARLY as much as the blacks. They want more “people of color” on the film industry. Ive always seen it as whites are just more creative (on average) with things like film/tv/music, ect,ect. I saw a youtube comment the other day that read “Blacks are athletic, Asians are smart, and Whites are creative.” Sounds about right.

  • mikejones91

    I agree with everything but the last part, as of right now anyway. To me anyway, it seems like people just PREFER to intra-racially. Unless an “agenda” is pushed otherwise. Which is happening slowly. Human nature is hard to tweak though. Look at Malin Akerman. I think she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She has a white husband. Who to be honest, isn’t that good looking lol. Surely this beautiful white woman could have ANY man she wants. Especially some black guy. I see idiot blacks talking about it on Youtube all the time. They believe that ALL white women secretly long for black men. I guess it gives them “comfort” in face of all there other “downfalls”. Even if a white woman is married to/dating a white man, she still wants a black man. HAHAHAHHAH. Hilarious. Whites prefer whites, Blacks prefer blacks. Most of us anyway. Thats just the way it is.

     Worse than that. “whiteys” who do not object to diversity, or are actually more comfortable in a relatively diverse environment still get screwed. At least men do. So do women sometimes. Trying being a woman over 35 in much of California who is looking a traditional women’s office job. Unless you are drop-dead knockout hot or so gentrified that you are able to get hired by the most elite offices or companies, you will never get a job.

    Only “bilingual” women are hired. “Bilingual” does not mean an Anglo woman who has learned Spanish. It means a gentrified (assimilated) Hispanic girl or woman only. Follow the money trail. Hispanic customers may walk the other way if they are not met by an Hispanic office worker who speaks Spanish. True even if they are fluent in English and possibly not fluent enough in Spanish to conduct business in that language. An Anglo woman who speaks Spanish will not do.

    Anglo customers do not complain or vote with their business. Or organize in favor of fair employment. Not up to the kind of hardball tactics it takes to fight this trend.

    Well known that in an office environment things go more smoothly if everybody is the “same”. But it is still illegal. An office does need ten out of ten bilingual women to provide adequate service to their customers.

  • JJ

    Good article but the last paragraph left me wondering if the author really understand our current situation.

    First, let me deal with the comment that  “pernicious radical egalitarianism has penetrated the brains of our nation’s leaders.”  Well yes, it has, but this is not a RECENT phenomenon.  People who think like Obama and the folks at his Dept of Education and Dept of Justice, formed their views long, long ago.  They are just now getting to be of an age where they can run for public office and run Cabinet-level Departments.  Hope lies in that their generation will one day grow too old to muck things up and they will retire. Those who follow will try to emulate them but they are nowehere as accomplished . . . any more than Obama ever achieved what Saul Alinsky achieved.  The students are rarely as accomplished as their teachers  . . . there lies our future success.

    Second, we are far from defenseless.  We were defenseless in the 1960s when a Democratic administration who understood the power of television used black & white images to color all Southern whites “racist.”   We were defenseless in the 1970s and 80s with the rise of black television shows and the inclusion of black characters in white shows . . . all who were brilliant, heroic, likeable people faced with the harsh and stupid reality of white America.   Then came rap, and Jesse, and Big Al, and on and on.

    But no more.  Sites like this for example, and countless others, allow us to fight back.

    Equal opportunity does not guarantee equal outcomes. if blacks are disciplined more often, it is because they are committing more offenses. these people want nothing but to burden the successful with the inadequacies of failures.

    The Economic Impact of the Achievement Gap in America’s Schools, McKinsey & Company, April, 2009 is an interesting read. according to the report, in a fantasy world where blacks and browns were able to achieve at the same rate as whites and asians, the united states economy would benefit significantly. no mention in the report of the costs associated with closing that gap. nothing about how much we would save if those people weren’t here in the first place.

  • You need to read Martin Luthers (founder of protestant churches)book about jewish crime titled “On the jews and their lies”  written in 1543. It details crimes and fruads that you probably wouldnt belive possible unless you are knowledgeable in financial crimes, and this was over 500 years ago. The russian mob is jewish, the worst US mobsters where jewish.

  • jackellis

    Since our concerns about Islamization in Europe and 3rd world immigration are “legitimate”, shouldn’t the fact that every single Jewish Congressman and senator besides VA Cantor has a d- or F failing immigration grade from NumbersUSA also be a legitimate concern for White Americans?

    Crazy as it sounds, The American Jewish leadership supports/demands open borders immigration in to the USA, the West, the Jewish elite even demands massive Muslim immigration in to the USa, the West. It’s all rapped up in opposing White Racism.

    Study history, Jews were once expelled from Spain in 1492, or tortured under The Inquision for taking the Muslim Moor’s side against White Spanish Catholics. Way too many Jews haven’t moved on from this.

    In order to hate Jews one has either to resent things about them that are true and praiseworthy, or one has to believe things about them that are preposterously false.
     
    They really do have a prominence out of proportion to their numbers in the academy, business, Hollywood, journalism, and in any other field that requires superior intelligence. This is because their average intelligence is high. It is not because of any Jewish conspiracy. 
     
    On the other hand I am unaware of any evidence that Jewish businessmen are less honest than Gentile businessmen.

       Note also, that there are many fields where there are few Jews. Few Jewish engineers, for example. Lot of lawyers, fewer MBAs and top execs.  Lower down on the food chain, lots of small business operators, not so many firefighters or law enforcement officers. Jewish-American do serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, but certainly not beyond their numbers as other definable groups do. What bothers me in these discussions is that some people seem so disturbed when some group is over- or under- represented in some occupation or activity. But that’s just a normal part of life.

      The issue of minority firefighters has been discussed in these pages, for example. Well, has it occurred to any that the black men  who could qualify as firefighters autonomously choose other careers, such as law enforcement or the military? Well, people making these kind of choices along with differences in ability, if we may dare speak of such, might be the  explanation for why we see different people represented in different occupations.

    You won’t find that town, neither will you find a town where people fear violent street crime from Orientals.

    Jews don’t like white Europeans. Jews work against white European hegemony any way they can. No matter what Jews have contirbuted to European or world civilization, their main goals are multiracialism in white societies and racial purity in  Jewish societies. At this point there is so much evidence of this truth that Jewish apologists are just wearing blinders and ignoring a mountain of evidence.

    Colleges fill their public relations publications and websites with hideous Diversity, but when they send fundraising brochures to their rich alumni, they show nothing but a parade of beautiful Anglo-Saxon Whiteness.

    Everyone knows that racial disparity is caused by White privilege.  When we force Whiteys to admit their White privilege and commit to eradicating the harmful effects of their racist privileges on community of colors, then the achievement gap will disappear, because White achievement will disappear.

    Achievement Gap = White Achievement = White Privilege = Racism

      Well, since non-whites always seem to cede to whites, as in the envy of whiteness, blacks straightening their hair, wearing blonde wigs, spending oodles of dollars on it, even Asians trying to look white, non-white men obsessively pursuing a white female, etc., perhaps it just comes down to the notion of white privilege existing in the people who see whites just existing as oppressive to them.   When I have visited non-white lands, I noticed that I was not at an advantage.  In fact, when I go to for example, China Town in any city, I don’t feel my White Privilege doing much for me.  I pretty much get ignored except for when I pull money out.  No one cares to make me feel privileged by speaking English to me, except when there’s some money to be made.  Same in places like Mexico, where I even got a sneers from a few people.  I have had a few experiences where women took me aside to just stare into my blue eyes, no kidding.  But I was born with them, they were not a result of a political bias or planned conspiracy against people of color.  Perhaps if you could get a movement going to remove the skin from white people, and gouge out the eyes of the blue eyed; you might begin to feel better.

    Personally, I vote with my dollars- Never will even consider an account with AllState until that black guy has been gone from the ads for at least two years. It was amusing though that earlier he was given a leading role in a TV series about a largely criminal military Unit of murderers and assassins……….who were quite believable in their actions for our neocon government.

  • better_times

    I checked out American Thinker & they have a story on Critical Race Theory as a top item.  Judging from the comments to this piece, many people on AT agree with you.  You should comment on sites like AT & NR as it can shift people over time even if they censor you initially.  This is how the Left works & has been successful – small increments over time win the war.

    Also, I keep advocating for putting up fliers with these ideas & protests.  Amazing article today in the NY Post about the mega response this man’s flier got:
    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/hey_we_re_lonely_too_jjtpdcWm72z57AQpA9C8GM

    Let’s all do something about this injustice. Even small acts create huge waves. Don’t give up.

  • saris1

    Not one comment on the fact that this article was written by a Jew? 

    Hey, Robert Weissberg, perhaps in your next article you can educate the people on all of the wars that America is pulled into when Africa gets us to do it’s dirty work. Or how the Africans now want us to go into yet another war in the Middle East. 

    Or perhaps you can talk about the economic collapse and list all of the Blacks that own the banks.

    I’ll be looking forward to it!

    • jackellis

      This comment is inappropriate and violates American Rennaissance guidelines that strictly prohibit anti Semitic Jew hatred. 

      This article is fine – you have no evidence that the author is promoting the things that you charge all Jewish people with doing. 

      And for your information – George Bush, Dick Chaney, Southern Evangelical Christians strongly pushed for these wars in the Middle East. These people are not Jewish. 

      Take a hike, maybe try to get a real job or a real life.

      • saris1

        You have a policy that specifically prohobits “anti-semitic” Jew hatred? (LOL!) Oh, really! How nice! So, this site is about bashing the blacks? Because, they collapsed the economy? They run the media? They completely dominate the god-damned Jew-dicial system?

        Hey black people! Go look who ran a little more than 75% of the slave ships, it was Jews!
        Hey black people! Go look at who ran the Ghettoes, even today, look at the names!
        Hey black people! Go look who runs the “Gangsta rap” industry!

        Hey EVERYONE! Guess who runs this particular site?

        “American Rennaissance guidelines that strictly prohibit anti Semitic Jew hatred. ”

        ^^^ That tells you everything you need to know. ^^^

        It’s not the Blacks that run America, Jackellis, and you fucking know it. It’s the Jews. It’s not the Africans that pull the U.S into war after war, Is it?

        SIEG HEIL!

        • jackellis

          Can the moderators please step in an edit out the drunk comments of this moron?

          American Renaissance’s comment guidelines strictly prohibits profanity and anti Semitic Jew hatred/scape-goating.

          American Renaissance has many solid Jewish readers. Yes, America has problems with certain Jewish organizations, Jewish people who promote anti White policies. We encourage decent Jewish people to address these anti White individuals in their own community.

          But American Renaissance is a positive, upscale publication – so we don’t tolerate low life, drunks, foul mouthed morons like the idiot that made this post.

          And I don’t put all the blame on you, much of the blame falls on your vile mother who would raised such an ignorant, foul mouthed buffoon. 

          You’ve just been bounced out of the Amren bar, please crawl back in to the gutter where your kind belongs.

    Elaine, I’ve done the same thing for years. Along with the news stories: Story 1: “Two men were shot  Friday night; the suspect was arrested.” My response is always, “What color is he?” before they can continue the story with, “Trayvon Marquez Jones was arrested at a friend’s apartment….”  Every story, every time.

    • Impertinent

      Picked up my local liberal rag a couple of days ago: 19 arrested in huge cocaine smuggling ring.

      Everyone of the 19 names…Latino or Mexican or columbian…whatever. Everyone of them from 19 to 34 years old.

    “More than likely most of the time will be spent on how to celebrate Harriet Tubman Week…”

    Then we have to sit through a month of “Black History”. It’s so embarrassing and hysterical that Amos and Andy would be ashamed.

  • Impertinent

    “she needs to be taught a lesson in race reality..”

    Tragically and predictably …it can only be both for her. I’m reluctant to say it…but…you can only imagine what it would take for her to get “schooled” in typical black pathology.

    PEG: Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don’t

    White teachers who complete PEG will agree that they should “transcend my racist White privilege” by encouraging blacks to learn in ways that come natural to them.

    (Then shouldn’t Macon’s Diversity be encouraged to abandon the racist White English language and recover their native jungle dialects and voodoo religion?)

    But when White teachers encourage blacks to be “more authentic,” they are accused of being racists!

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. That’s the real secret of Diversity is our Strength- we can mau mau the Whiteys no matter what they do, because we always can screem “raciss!” and keep getting more of what we want.

    Black student asked to read ‘blacker’
    ‘Why did she have to do it to me?’

    (WJLA) — Jordan Shumate is still in a state of shock over what he says his freshman English teacher told him to do as he read a poem aloud in class.The 14-year-old George C. Marshall High School student was asked to read Langston Hughes’ “Ballad of the Landlord.”He says that when he read a poem in his normal voice, his teacher asked him to read it “blacker.”He is the only African American student in the class at the Falls Church school. And he says the fact he was singled out and asked to read it “blacker” shows racial insensitivity by his teacher.

  • Yes, diversity really means more BLACKS. It’s got nothing to do with Hispanics/ Latinos or Asians. Never has, never will. Blacks are ridiculously overrepresented. Why Hispanics and Asians have not made more of an issue out of this is surprising. I do know that Hispanics did make a big deal out of being underrepresented in politics and city jobs in LA over the last decade; especially after being the large majority now over blacks. However, more of this needs to happen to blacks. They’ve been SPOILED for WAY too long.
    With blacks being the RUDEST of any group by a landslide, if I’m in a city and want to talk to someone who works for the city, I’d rather that conversation be with anyone except a non-appreciative black city “worker”.
    Never again in history, will there ever be such a spoiled, overrepresented group. I’d put my life on that. 13% and you’d think they make up 75%. It’s disgusting.

  • saris1

    No, here is a better project.

    Who runs the organ trade? who kidnaps young girls to sell them worldwide? who pushes nation after nation into Wars that are not in the interests of those that fight them? Who ran the derivatives? Who pushed for the Federal Reserve? Who runs the Intenational system of finance? Who runs the media? Who is pushing to poison you by your food? Monsanto is a Jewish company!

    You’re worried about a car jacking while your Nation is being poisoned through the food, exhausted by war and bankrupted by a bunch of Jews in finance?

    Stop being such a little girl.

    Sieg Heil!
