In Minnesota, race drives school labels, discipline for students

Jeffrey Meitrodt, Star Tribune (Minneapolis), December 18, 2013

The little yellow buses line up every morning outside Harrison Education Center in north Minneapolis, discharging dozens of teenagers to a high school no parents choose for their child.

Classrooms are kept locked at all times. Fights and suspensions are common. No one has graduated in a couple of years.

The school is where Minneapolis sends special education students with the worst behavior problems, kids who typically failed everywhere else they went. Administrators say the high school is supposed to be a temporary stop for students to learn self-control before going back to a less restrictive setting.

But few ever leave. And nearly 90 percent of the students are black.

Discrimination in the way students are labeled and disciplined has plagued special education across the country for decades, but a Star Tribune review of state and federal enrollment records shows that the problem is especially acute in Minnesota.

More than 4 percent of all black students in Minnesota are identified as having emotional or behavioral disorders, a subjective, catchall label for thousands of children considered disruptive. That rate is more than three times the national average for black students and higher than any other state in the country, according to the most recent federal data available.

School officials in Minneapolis and St. Paul, where the issue is most stark, acknowledged that racial bias is tainting special education and vowed to address the long-standing problem.

“We are disappointed in the overrepresentation, and we know we must do something about it,” said Bernadeia Johnson, superintendent of Minneapolis public schools. “It’s too high. If it is 2 percent, it is too high.” Minneapolis’ rate is 7 percent; in St. Paul, it is nearly 8 percent.

{snip}

For many students, getting labeled as having an emotional or behavioral disorder (also known as EBD) is devastating. About 40 percent of EBD students drop out of high school, according to federal statistics, a rate twice as high as any other disability category.

{snip}

Blacks accounted for 30 percent of students in her [Liz Keenan, who oversees special education programs in St. Paul] district but made up two-thirds of its EBD program.

By contrast, white students, who make up 24 percent of enrollment, accounted for about two-thirds of students identified with autism spectrum disorder.

“I thought, ‘Here is the racial dividing line,’ ” Keenan recalled. “When you look at the criteria for EBD, it is extremely subjective. It is not a blood test. It is not an IQ test. You simply have to show signs of behavior outside of the norms.”

In Minnesota, she said, mostly white educators decide who has a disorder and who doesn’t.

“We can’t fool ourselves,” Keenan said. “[Autistic] kids are tearing up the classrooms, too. But it is perceived differently when you have a black student tearing it up than a white student.”

University researchers have blamed cultural differences for much of the problem.

Educators “look at a loud, aggressive white child and label them spirited, and the very same behavior with a black child is labeled emotional behavioral disorder,” said social worker Teresa Graham, who has worked in Minneapolis and other districts.

{snip}

The job of rooting out racial discrimination in special ed has largely been left to states, which have taken different approaches to defining the problem.

In Minnesota, no school district has been forced to take action when disabled minority students have been disciplined too much or are too often identified as EBD or having other disabilities.

Federal officials first notified Minnesota about that issue in 2010, concluding that the state’s ratio for defining unequal treatment was “too high.” At the time, a school district could face consequences only if minorities were disciplined five times as often as whites or dominated a disability category, such as EBD, by a ratio of 5-1. Under Minnesota’s rules, a district also has to be cited three years in a row and must have practices that caused the problem.

Minnesota lowered its ratio to 4-1 in 2011. That remains among the highest thresholds in the country, according to a report this year from the Government Accountability Office. At least six other states use a similar ratio.

The Minnesota Department of Education defends its handling of the issues . . . .

{snip}

At an August meeting, it brought in national speakers to help districts create action plans to address racial inequities.

    High school for blacks = Prison

    • Katherine McChesney

      There’s a black blog called The Root. Now I’ve figured it out.

      It’s name for ‘the root’ of black racism against Whites.

  • Puggg

    Minnesota is like Little Sweden on the Prairie. If racism can’t be eliminated there, then it can’t be eliminated anywhere. They ought to stop trying.

    • BonusGift

      Kind of reminds me of the song New York, New York by Frank Sinatra, except imagine JayZ or some other rapper:

      My whitey blues
      They are melting away
      I gonna make a brand new start of it
      In old St. Paul

      If I can create mayhem there
      I’ll create mayhem anywhere
      It’s up to you
      Minnesota

      Minneapolis
      I want to wake up in that city
      That always sleeps
      And find I’m king of the hill
      Top of the list
      Head of the heap
      King of the hill
      Blah, blah, blah,
      Kill whitey,
      Hate whitey,
      It’s all your fault whitey,
      You get the idea don’t you?

  • D.B. Cooper

    I have no respect for people, white or otherwise, who merely lay down and not bother to fight for what is theirs. white people of Minnesota have convinced me that they do not deserve that state. Go ahead and give it away, but don’t come to my state!

    • Strike_Team

      Most whites aren’t in a position to fight. The government is using all of its powers against them. Black problems, malfeasance, horrible behavior of non-whites, and worse are dropped on white people’s laps. Then the government decides they’re going to round up the blacks and others and send them to your kid’s school. Then the government goes farther and builds public housing near your neighborhood or in your neighborhood. Or the feds decide there’s housing discrimination in your neighborhood with a cooked up case, and the next thing you know your neighbor is Shanayla Jackson, with her six kids from six different baby daddies, and three of them are “special needs” children. Whites in Minn aren’t giving anything away, it’s being taken from them.

      All of the same is coming to your front door, sooner or later. Might even be courtesy of Somalians, or maybe Mexicans. Mexicans can’t make it to where you live? Oh, if they’ve turned up in McHenry Ill, exhibiting all the fun behaviors they have in the Southwest and more, they can turn up anywhere in the US. The government, under the control of the usual suspects, will make sure of that. Hell, do you think the lard tailed, stumpy legged mestiza grandmothers who can barely walk, that suddenly land in the US, got across the border by walking? By swimming across the Rio Grande? By enduring a stifling trip crammed into a semi trailer with other parasites? These evil old hags couldn’t survive it. They were let in the country with no problems. Along with their much younger children and grandchildren who are taken care of cradle to grave with your tax money. Because your government wants them to replace you.

      • IstvanIN

        Excellent. By the way the Mexicans have made it to Alaska.

        • So CAL Snowman

          They have made it to the Hamptons as well. Like American Express they are everywhere YOU want to be. Unlike American Express they do not come with identity fraud protection.

          • Katherine McChesney

            The Hamptons? LOL

            If I remember correctly blacks have also moved into the neighborhood.

      • Stan D Mute

        Whites in Minnesota routinely and regularly vote for the most socialist candidate on the ballot. They’ve been doing this for decades.

        So yes, they ARE giving it away. And because these are Federal positions, they’re not just giving away their stuff, but also trying like heck to give away my stuff.

        • Strike_Team

          I don’t care who duped whites vote for. Do you see any difference anywhere in places where whites supposedly vote “correctly”? It doesn’t matter. All this comes from the top down. Things get progressively worse for whites each year. That’s what the “progressives” work on. Whites are not going to vote themselves out of this mess. Isn’t going to happen.

      • kenfrombayside

        Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
        – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
        – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
        – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
        – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
        – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
        – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
        – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
        – text everybody in your cell phone queue now.
        IF YOU DO OR SAY NOTHING, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM….

      Unfortunately (for you) once residents have given their state away, they have no course other than to find another state to give away. As a long time Virginia resident, I’m learning this far too well.

  • Garrett Brown

    This is actually IN Minneapolis? Isn’t it like a mini California? You should feel ashamed liberals! Your utopia is RACIS!

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    Let’s see, Minneapolis whites are among the most brainwashed whites in buying into the “we’re all the same”, “blacks are kept down because of racism” mumbo-jumbo. Ditto for whites who choose to become teachers in urban public schools. So are we really supposed to believe that the disproportionate black numbers in the article are a result of racism from white Minneapolis teachers who’ve likely dedicated their life to fighting alleged white racism? Seems implausible, but the white teachers will accept the smear because, in their mind, to tell the truth would be racist.

    In reality, Minneapolis’ black students are likely worse behaved than other black students specifically because they see their white teachers as overly permissive Liberal saps.

    • BonusGift

      It’s probably hard to put a number on that bias, but your argument seems very plausible.

      • Strike_Team

        I don’t think it matters how permissive or realistic whites are. In the end, the feds are forcing it all down their throats as I said in another post in this thread. And the feds, the laws and those who enforce them, are controlled by our enemies. For now.

        • BonusGift

          That’s true; it’s just that I am a numbers kind of guy and I think the point is interesting (i.e., at least to me).

    • So CAL Snowman

      Im going to have to go with the Somalian problem for $100 please Alex.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    In a sense how could it be otherwise? These guys probably represent the more…borderline retarded level examples of their race. At some level they realize the only way they are going to “make it” is through some combination of actions that involve violence.

    They understand their lives are especially nasty, short, and brutish, and decide to live them by spreading as much misery around as they can.

    Poor, persecuted, borderline retarded, EVIL, blacks…

    • Whitetrashgang

      Yeah imagine if aliens who were 100 IQ points above whitey came and invented 97 percent of new things for whitey, and then you had to go to school with them. That’s how blacks view their life if they can think for themselves.

      • Strike_Team

        It’s like I’ve told people, and this goes for most non-whites; imagine standing on a street corner and you take a look around. Streets, buildings, automobiles, aircraft overhead, cell phones, televisions, literally everything around you was invented by whites. You know, those people who are supposed to be only number three on the IQ totem pole (but we have a wider distribution of IQ and more creativity than the supposed smarter peoples, that never gets mentioned). Anyway, imagine being in that position. On some level you would realize you are the alien.

        Or maybe whites are a mutant race. Or an alien race. Or the product of alien gene manipulation, the most all around capable people, instead of being specialized species like the other races. ; ) Or maybe whites were created in a test tube by Yacob as the black Muslims are so fond of telling us.

        On the serious side, it is food for thought. And it is likely why blacks and in fact hispanics will never, could never, really integrate fully into white society. Not that we should want them to. They are not us.

        • libertarian1234

          I don’t think blacks could successfully integrate with any other race on earth. They fight with everybody. They can’t get along with anyone.

          And I think the reasons for it are stupidity and jealousy, wrapped in an always arrogant attitude for the vast majority.

          • Stan D Mute

            I have to wonder how much of that arrogance is taught by white socialist agitators. I’ve see video of Afros who’ve never met whites and they seem very humble and respectful of what must to them seem godlike creatures with all sorts of magical powers. Then the agitators come in and tell them they too should have all these magical powers, that they would have them if whitey hadn’t stolen from them, and that whitey owes them *everything*.

          • Morris65

            Give that poster a barrel full of crabs!

      • BonusGift

        Good point; and indeed that seems to be how they act.

      • Stan D Mute

        It’s worse than that really. Because blacks are spoon fed from infancy the false “truth” that they are equal to or superior to whites, all they see and comprehend is that whites have more stuff than they do. They have absolutely no conception of what is involved in gaining the education to be, for example, a doctor. Hence the common black term for a student with even marginal intelligence, “he be actin all white an Sh!t”. It’s utterly and completely foreign to them. I do think many at least sense that whites are on an entirely different plane of cognition, but they’re not smart enough to understand what that means. Imagine a pre-schooler “playing doctor” and that’s about what the average black understands of medicine.

        So, unlike your analogy with the aliens, whom we would know are infinitely superior to us in intellect, the average black knows no such thing. His mama and his teachers and even that godlike being “tha pincipul” at school all told him he could become a doctor. When he inevitably fails, he blames whites. Whites have caused his failure. Whites have all the good stuff including white women. Whites OWE him.

        There was a fascinating talk at an Amren conference years ago by a white guy who went to Africa to work as a teacher. It’s on YouTube. The video is old and quality poor, but it’s a “must see” for anyone wanting to really understand the African.

    • Stan D Mute

      “At some level they realize…” “They understand … And decide…”

      NO.

      Their only thought process goes something like this: “Rap be goot. I gon be a rappa. White hoes be fine. Dem bees wantin me. Dat whitey be rich. Ima get his.” And that’s ALL that goes through their heads in an endless repeat loop.

      Also, “borderline retarded” is the Afro-American *average* IQ. These special cases are almost certainly below the pure blooded Afro average of 70. Under the now “obsolete” DSM IV guidelines these would be “mildly retarded” if held to the white standard. The thing we must always keep in mind is that there are a LOT of Afros in this category. If the average is 70, we may expect half the population will fall below 70 and into the “mildly retarded” category.

      This is actually the number one mistake I see race realists make, ascribing to the Afro more intelligence than he actually possesses.

      • BonusGift

        I agree; but if they believe that then they are not realists are they?

        • Stan D Mute

          I think you can be a race realist without fully comprehending just how dumb most Afros really are. I think that without ever working with “special needs” (low IQ) people, it would be very easy to overestimate intelligence, especially of Afros as they typically have a superabundance of self-confidence and outgoing personality types. The average white guy in the suburbs may think of a guy with whom he attended school having an IQ of 85 as “really stupid.” But it would be a mistake to conflate that guy with the average Afro in the US also with an 85 as cultural norms are also in play. Afros have commonly held beliefs most whites would think absurdly stupid (ie the CIA invented crack to harm Afros). Listen to questions Afros ask Jared Taylor during his Towson U speech! Then keep in mind that these are the smartest of the Afros.

          Also, Hollyweird has for the past few decades presented Afros as beneficent problem solvers to further confuse matters. In real life, there are probably a hundred thousand Afro imbeciles for every Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams. History proves to us that the rare intelligent Afro is so vastly outnumbered by imbecile Afros that he has never managed to organize enough to create written language or a number scheme greater than 10 (and frequently only “some” or “many”). That’s the real value of the Amren conference presentation I mentioned in another post, by studying Afro native language you get a sense of what the Afro mind can do. If there is simply no word for our white “conscience” it means simply Afros haven’t what we think of as a conscience. Frankly, I’m not sure IQ tests really express just how primitive Afros really are.

          • BonusGift

            Yes, I agree with you. Also, the extremes of the IQ distribution are not very indicative of an individual’s ‘g’. For example, we could be looking at another Newton (in my opinion maybe the greatest scientist ever; i.e., the right tail of the right tail as it were) and he may have a measured IQ of 130, yet in actual fact he is something closer to an effective 160 or beyond. In short, as you move roughly beyond the 90th up to about two standard deviations (just the part we are most interested in BTW) it really doesn’t do a very good job other than roughly identifying the group of people we would expect to contribute most intellectually to the population (i.e., more or less for a white population). Now reverse that with reflect to blacks and it also doesn’t do a very good job on the left tail of the left tail as it were.

          • Erasmus

            I only went to school with a few afros, and if I hadn’t attributed their behavior, which was dull-witted, to “being black”, I would have said most of them were mildly retarded.

            Thanks for mention this. I just finished watching the six part series. He mentioned that blacks are great at littering, which reminded me of when I worked for that black corporation in Nashville, I asked one of the black staff why Fisk University and Meharry had so much trash on their lawns and why they didn’t place it in the garbage bins provided. She told me that they throw it on the ground so someone can be given a job to pick it up.

            *hahahaha*

            Dumb blacks.

      • ricpic

        Excellent post and a very important point. If the average white could only get it through his head that a black with a 70 IQ, or even a black with an 85 IQ, does NO CONCEPTUALIZING, none zero nada. With this in mind all schooling of blacks, if it is to be effective, must be limited to learning by rote. Minimal math skills, for example, can be taught effectively to a “dull-normal” population using this method. More important, the feral nature of blacks can be, again to a limited extent, brought under control by constant firm repetition of the tenets set forth in the ten commandments. Followed by consistent punishment when the moral rules are broken. Yes, I realize I am writing a fantasy post. But possibly, after the implosion we are so clearly headed for occurs, possibly then, after the world is righted, blacks will once again be put on a firm leash. Which would make them much happier, much less resentful than they are as “equals.”

      • oatwillie

        A good deal of your argument fails to address “set and setting”.Black culture has no use for books. Reflection is not part of his toolkit. No finer thing could happen to a black orphan than, as a baby, be adopted by a middle class white family and home schooled. The result might not be a black genius, but a possible rise of 30 points on an IQ test.

        • Stan D Mute

          Except the Minnesota twin studies showed us that IQ gains of the type you suggest are (1) much smaller – more like ten to fifteen points and (2) temporary. Such gains all but disappear entirely when retested as adults.

          There is now a pretty overwhelming amount of data showing IQ is almost entirely hereditary and environment only contributes to whether or not ones DNA potential is fulfilled and how early in life this happens.. I suggest reading some of Phil Rushton’s work or Steve Sailer’s work as a starting point.

    Discrimination in the way students are labeled and disciplined has plagued special education across the country for decades, but a Star Tribune review of state and federal enrollment records shows that the problem is especially acute in Minnesota.

    It is interesting that the reporter assumes, and expect the reader to assume, that the overrepresentation is due to discrimination. Not so much as a single, tentative wisp of a thought that perhaps the situation has another cause. Not up for discussion. Not “many blame this on discrimination.” Or “those blaming the situation on discrimination cite this evidence.” I wonder where the reporter went to journalism school. Did he miss the class where they teach you how to disguise your bias?

    • LeGrandDerangement

      In northeastern MN, lots of people are liberal on economic issues, but socially conservative, lots of blue-collar/union people. 30 years ago they floated an amendment to the city charter giving gays extra civil rights and it was voted down. Downstate progressives were horrified, assumed it would pass up here.

    Apparently not “feminized” enough as to throw a lot of Negroes into penitentiary-like school.

  • Jesse_from_Sweden

    Exactly.
    I saw the same problem in the comments in the article about somalis and autism and low IQ.

    People seem to not realize what autism actually is, and just think it’s low IQ and poor social skills.
    Autism is a lack of a quite specific set of social skills, meaning introverted.

    While most idiot blacks are far from introverted and are instead screaming and hollering and playing monkey in order to get attention.

    • LeGrandDerangement

      Introversion is not a lack of social skills. It’s a personality type. More likely it’s a lack of interest in social skills.

      • Jesse_from_Sweden

        But in the case of autism, an introvert personality is a result of it.

        People constantly acting out and wanting to get attention are not suffering from autism.

  • They are high functioning disorders …. few blacks fit that description.
    Blacks are using it as a SSDI scam.

  • Jesse_from_Sweden

    Aspergers is considered an a subgroup of autism.
    One that is defined as high-functioning autism with no other mental disabilities and an above average intelligence.

    So it’s not very surprising that a group with above average intelligence and no other mental disabilities will do well in higher education. And it is also no surprise that they will be drawn towards the hard natural sciences where their problems with social skills isn’t as big of a handicap as if they’d studied liberal arts, communication or some other field that is highly reliant on it.

  • Jesse_from_Sweden

    For many students, getting labeled as having an emotional or behavioral
    disorder (also known as EBD) is devastating. About 40 percent of EBD
    students drop out of high school, according to federal statistics, a
    rate twice as high as any other disability category.

    Yeah, that could be devastating for them, to get that label.

    Or it might be their behaviour that is devastating for them, which is the reason they get that label.

    Especially since this is not a “disability category” but a label placed to identify students with issues that means they are a big problem in school.

    More than 4 percent of all black students in Minnesota are identified as
    having emotional or behavioral disorders, a subjective, catchall label
    for thousands of children considered disruptive. That rate is more than
    three times the national average for black students and higher than any
    other state in the country, according to the most recent federal data
    available.

    Two possible reasons for this. One is that they lump in somalis with blacks, and somalis are a mix of blacks with arabs and a big dose of islam, creating a very nasty combination meaning they are the biggest problem group pretty much wherever they are (including studies from Sweden and UK that place them at the bottom (or top, depending on how you wanna see it) of pretty much every list of problematic issues such as unemployment, crime, school problems et).

    The other reason is that Minnesota is still relatively white, meaning black problems stand out all the much clearer when they are compared to white students instead of other blacks.
    The actual percentage of blacks that behave worse than other blacks might not be higher than the percentage of whites that behave worse than other whites.
    But if you start comparing the percentage of blacks that behave worse than a mostly white student body, then those numbers will suddenly look a lot more grim.
    Which is because the general black behaviour differs from the general white behaviour.

  • Luca

    “The school is where Minneapolis sends special education students with the worst behavior problems, …… And nearly 90 percent of the students are black.”

    God help the remaining 10%.

    I lived in Duluth 30 years ago and it was nice small city. Moved back to it 14 years ago and was shocked at how trashed it had become. Ditto the Chicago gang-bangers here now.

  • Fathercoughlin

    You know those stupid-assed movies they make about teaching “minorities”,the ones with these aspects:A)Teacher young good looking white,usually a blonde white woman. B)Scared of the blacks at first.(Wow, Stereotyping!) C) Gets to know them a little. Sees their pain. A young girl,abused at home,she wants to write poetry! “You are gifted!” D)Pretty blonde teacher,with lovely silk blouse,reaches out to tough scarey gangsta black. They become allies! A teacher he can,nomesayne,trust,cuz she “keepin it RILL!!” Added bonus: A smarmy white guy has the hots for the teacher,he comes on to her,harrasses her,”Ya think you’re so special!?You think you are gonna save these kids? HA! No one can!”.Black gangsta intervenes,sends him packing. He is her protector. E)They WANT to learn,but–the school has failed them! F) Mean white administrator::”Dont go causing trouble,you hear?” G) Some climactic event,but the kids are disappointed! “I knew she didnt really care about… US.” H) Redemption! The teacher comes thru for the kids and they smile and enjoy learning! Now they will go forth and be succesful and fight raycizzum! ?? They should make one based on YOUR experiences!

    • newscomments70

      I remember that one. I couldn’t watch it because I had alread surmised what the plot would be. I was in Germany when the movie came out. The German youth blasted the theme song of this movie (gangsta rap) constantly from their Opels and VW’s. I marvelled at how Germans idolized black American gangsta culture. White youths in the US did it as well, but it was worse in Germany.

      • LaSantaHermandad

        Well they didn’t have to deal with the day to day predations of the Mau Mau except those in our military who sparked the curiosity of the German women who ended up raped and pregnant.

        • newscomments70

          I always wondered how many black GI’s raped white women in Germany. I am quite sure that those statistics will NEVER be released. I know that black soldiers in Okinawa used to rape women and girls quite often, but that was publicized for some reason (omitting race of course). German women still seem fascinated with African men. Sex tourism in Africa and the Caribbean is wildy popular. There are even movies about it. Younger and especially older European women particiapte in this. While watching “Good bye Lenin”, a German film, and I saw the trailer advertising another German film…it was about a German woman in Africa. The scene showed her fornicating with some African man in a tar paper shack while her white child was crawiing around…as if this were some thrilling, liberating act.

    • newscomments70

      I remember a movie with a similar theme, starring Goldie Hawn. She played a footballl coach for a struggling black HS team. It was more comical and less anti-white, but same message.

      • LeGrandDerangement

        There was another one, starring Jon Voight as a teacher in the islands off of South Carolina, with a bunch of Gullah children. Taken from a memoir of Pat Conroy, can’t remember the name now.

        • newscomments70

          these movies are all written by white liberals who glorify reaching out to blacks and similar. I imagine they can reach a small handful, but the reality is what greybeard described…stabbings and acid attacks. I wonder how many white women are raped while volunteering or working in social services.

          • LaSantaHermandad

            Just like Eve Carson & Amy Biehl (RIP) wanted to reach out to them. Their brain dead parents raised them that way.
            Hell, Mr. Biehl even hugged Amys’s murderers after with his support were acquitted.

          • newscomments70

            The Amy Biehl story was one of the few statistics that the “Ministry of Truth” allowed to be released. I believe the desired intention was to inspire us to “forgive”. It most likely had the opposite effect. Most whites, and anyone with common sense, shook their heads in disgust at the braindead white liberals. Well, those sick wierdos now have their martyr.

        • Morris65

          “Conrack”.

          • LeGrandDerangement

            Thank you

          • oatwillie

            I too, read the book. Conrack taught in a time before the Left spawned the Civil Rights Movement in the South. In the black community there was usually civility and two parent families, Hence, stability.

          • Morris65

            While never a supporter of legal segregation (and old enough to have worked in the civil rights movement in my younger days), it strikes me a unfortunate that one negative, if unintended, effect of integration was the exodus of so many black role models (businessmen, doctors, etc.) from so many black communities.

        • tlk244182

          Read the short story (autobio?) years ago. Made the kids appreciate “Shy Kosky” (Tchaikovsky.)

            I think it’s autobio, I remember reading somewhere that he taught on those islands when younger.

        • Katherine McChesney

          The Book was “The Water is Wide”. The movie is “Conrack”.

          • LeGrandDerangement

            Conroy’s written a couple of books I enjoyed, The Great Sabatini and The Lords of Discipline. This one is autobiographical and looks like a stinker

        • Erasmus

          The name of the movie was “Conrack”. It was based on the book “The Water is Wide”, by Pat Conroy.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I remember that. It was on cable in the wee hours of the morning. A “C” movie at best.

          I saw it in a motel while traveling on business.

    • drekkkkk

      You’re a real cynical bastard. I like that. We need more of that.

    • Many a foolish naive white person have actually gone into teaching and wanted to teach in black schools because they thought they too could be a hero, just like they saw in the movies.

      • newscomments70

        The movies are part of the recruitment / indoctrination. If the movies portrayed reality of teachers being assaulted, bullied and raped, who would volunteer for such an awful job? That is actually a good idea for a reality television show: the horrible plight of white teachers and students in “urban” schools. There could be UK and European versions as well.

    Reject all race mixing, all blending, all normalizing relations between Whites and non-Whites and try to stay as separate as you can and still earn a living or carry on your daily routines. You don’t have to be strident about this, just do it quietly and do it in every way you can.

    As a native Minnesotan, who watched while HHH sold our state down the river in the 1960’s, while my dead mother moved us further and further ‘west,’ in an effort to get away from this very ‘inner city’ darkening (all of which originally came from Gary, IN, and CHi-town’s ‘darker denizens,’ over fifty years ago, I’ve never- repeat, NEVER- understood the mentality that says raising White Children in a ‘multicultural environment’ was EVER good for Whites- or blacks, for that matter. I’ve been living in MN now, for the last twenty-plus years, after seeing what was going on in Californication, thinking that the few darkies we had here, would not equal the numbers of So Cal. But I am/was totally wrong. We now know, and have heard from the Obamanation, that he WILL ‘multiculturalize’ every single city of any cultural, intellectual, or pastoral merit, so that everyone can ‘experience diversity,’ even as we don’t want it. Every poster on this forum is clearly racially aware, sick and tired of the charade, but still unwilling to ACT on that DATA- Blacks need to be REMOVED from our lands. Until that becomes the meme, we will continue to be overrun by the ‘Golden Horde.’ Even in Lutherland, land of 10,000 Liberals. – ugh.

  • Morris65

    Certainly seems that these brilliant(/s) progressives consider it racist to make a distinction between disruptive behavior being considered yelling and shouting as opposed to the beating and/or raping of fellow students (and, it would seem, teachers as well).

    Where are all of these loud white kids who disrupt the classroom? I rarely saw such a person in dozens of schools where I have been a substitute teacher (meaning I would be more likely to encounter such individuals).

    I was fortunate enough to grow up in a small town, which was no more, I’m going to guess, than 2-3% minority. Truly a wonderful place I now realize as I look back. So if there was any misbehavior by any of the moolies it wasn’t felt. Plus, it was a time when
    Years later I had a black co-worker who told me that bringing black kids into white schools doesn’t raise the performance of black children but only brings down the performance of the other children, instead.
    It is time to stop wasting money we don’t have on trying to educate people native ability to be anything more than a janitor or parking lot attendant.

    –A semantic question for political liberals–

    If it is justified to punish populations for the crimes of their leaders (your) past, then why is it not justified to punish the children of criminals because it is the equivalent? When I was 3-years old, my mother was murdered by a bank robber in a bank, so would it not be justified for their children to sufferer as a consequence? Shouldn’t it be that the criminals family gets wiped out of existence for doing the same to my mother? Or should it be that the family’s home gets dispossessed and replaced with non-family members as a less violent punishment?
