    And if they don’t enroll, white people will be blamed for “creating a culture that tells them they can’t achieve,” or some such thing.

    • APaige

      They know about AP classes-that is WHY they do not take them. I just do not understand the belief that a group which struggles with basic educational requirements will somehow be helped by taking harder class. No one ever recommends someone who has difficulty with algebra to take calculus.

      • Jesse James

        Because many blacks aren’t rational thinkers, they don’t understand AP classes, to them it is just a magical doorway to good grades and college. Just like that woman on the TV news who was talking about “Obama’s secret stash of money”. It is ridiculous for us to continue pretending that most blacks are our equals. There is a small percentage, the fabled talented tenth, who can perform reasonably well or even excel in our culture. The majority however can’t maintain civilized norms of behavior or societal success.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          True. But the “rational thinkers” behind this are not likely to be black. The only power blacks have is in their ability to whine endlessly. Even when they are in charge of companies or even cities they fail miserably and have to spend half of their time figuring out how to blame whites.

          Once hey can establish blame (real or not) they can use it to bargain for aid to bail out their failed enterprise and keep the game rolling.

    • Alucard_the_last

      The modern motto is ‘Always Blame Whites’.

    • JamalJenkum

      Why don’t we just go down to the food stamp office and hand out some free ‘Brain Surgeon’ certificates. The newly appointed brain surgeons practice will be limited to patients who think this sort of idiocy would work somehow.

    • Erasmus

      And here I thought this article was surely from The Onion.

      Hell, blacks and latinos can barely pass regular math and English classes, let alone remedial ones, and they expect them to go into AP classes? Too funny.

  • D.B. Cooper

    How about doing something about your 51%> drop out problem before tackling the AP issue? Better yet, why not do what you people always do? That would be taking a 12th grade English class, with the smartest kid grappling the brain burning literature on one Dr. Suess, and simply calling it AP? Then, he can be affirmative actioned into Harvard or Yale!
    If I were in the mood, I would come up with some weird Dr. Suessian type of rhyme concerning this topic..

  • thomas edward

    In a way, I love this type of idiocy. Academia was in the forefront of shoving this stuff down everybody else’s throats for years and now it’s coming back to bight them in the butt.

    • Sue

      Not exactly. Academia was replaced by the night crawlers that dwell in the educational gutters of today.

  • JSS

    No I couldn’t care any less about blacks browns or native whatever’s. Count me not in until we start talking separation.

  • IstvanIN

    AP® courses, AP Potential™
    There must be a lot of fiat currency to be made “edumacating” the dunces of the nation.

    • me

      Bingo! You win the post of the day. The worship of money is what’s causing all of this insanity….like a crack whore’s morality, these people will lie, steal, and sleep with anyone as long as they keep that monopoly money rolling in. And, somehow, the Whites are being used as tax slaves and whipping boys to fund all of it.

  • Tarczan

    If none are qualified, I guess zero would be 100% of the qualified students.

    • Rhialto

      That’s a good point. It made me notice a error in the article, which I corrected.

      “… you pledge to review the master schedule at your school or in your district to ensure that well over 100 percent of African American, …”

  • MekongDelta69

    As a loyal and faithful AmRener with unbounded ‘White Guilt and Privilege,” you can count me “All In”.

    Ahm jes’ representin’

  • All in? I’m all out. All out of patience with egalitarians. All out of sympathy for dumb minorities who want everything on a silver platter. Leave me the xxxx out of your schemes to marginalize my people. I’m angry and you don’t want to see me express my anger. Believe me.

  • So CAL Snowman

    100% of 0 is zero.

  • What’s the other side of this coin?

    White students’ AP tests are being eliminated in favor of soft fluffy duff AP tests.

  • dd121

    If the darkies are to pass the classes will have to be dumbed down. Way down.

    • willbest

      That hasn’t really been a concern for modern education for a good 30 years now.

      • dd121

        I’m talking about what will happen to AP classes if they’re forced to accept a lot of low IQ knee grows.

        • Well, they won’t be “Advanced Placement” any more.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          My district required all students to take AP U.S. History and you are 100% correct about what happens to those classes when blacks are forced to take them.

          The class ended up being no harder than a regular-level history class and most of the diversity still couldn’t handle it. At the end of the year, about half of the white kids passed the AP test and no black kids (that I know of) did.

          • willbest

            I was in regular chemistry in high school (and this is a top notch high school in the state at the time) my dad saw the course work and asked what the hell I was doing. He said that what we were covering was in the remedial track back when he was in high school (1950s) and that I was to go get into the advanced class, which my counselor took issue with, but for which I didn’t have any problem in once I caught up.

            Looking back on it with perspective the boundaries for my junior high and high school were very different such that at the time my junior high was 30% minority (mostly Hispanic), and the high school was more like 15% minority (mostly Asian). The result I suspect leading to me being less prepared for the 8th grade standardized tests which factored into placement in high school.

          • dd121

            I really don’t understand how the lefties cannot notice this year after year and draw the correct conclusions. I can make a blanket statement with absolute certainty: blacks will never do as well as whites in the schools. No amount of money is going to fix this. Their inborn IQs are just too low.

          • Libtards imagine a would in which they would like to live, and then proceed to pretend they live in such a world. They are mentally ill.

  • slash345

    F*ck equality.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The best way to completely destroy western society and physically exterminate the white race is to make everyone equal. Egalitarianism is just another word for white genocide.

      • Ron Cheaters

        That’s right, put darkey in an Ivy league school and take that spot away from whitey so he has to fend for himself or what they really want is for whitey to find it so difficult to compete that he gives up..
        That”s the new vision of equality.

        • Ah, but they depend on us to keep playing by their rules, to keep participating in their structures. The academic institutions our ancestors built for us have been overrun and destroyed from within, so we really owe them no loyalty at all.

          We don’t need the Ivy League anymore but they sure do need us. Withdrawal is a form of resistance that is peaceful and absolutely unstoppable. We don’t need them in order to accredit our own people, for our own purposes.

          Withdraw, unite, resist.

          • Ron Cheaters

            The IQ won’t change, only the envronment will. So the answer is homeschool.

  • Sue

    AP potential, that’s an oxymoron isn’t it?

  • JohnEngelman

    Lowering standards for blacks and Hispanics so that more can get into Advance Placement courses defeats the purpose of Advance Placement courses. Advance placement courses get enough diversity from Orientals, East Asians, and Jews.

    • me

      Cognitive dissonance is no problem for the feeble-minded leftists….

  • Conrad

    People in hell want ice water too.

  • Peter Connor

    Our AP classes around here are still very tough, disaster for the unprepared or unable.

  • Michael Mason

    It feels good knowing the reasons why liberal programs always fail.

  • Texan1st

    Why don’t they just give them their own classrooms for the gifted? They can call the new program something like “Advanced Placement and Education” (APE).

  • BillMillerTime

    And I want ice cream by mail.

  • Brian

    When I was a kid I read Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron”. I thought it was satire; now I realize it was prophecy.

  • We should start some kind of campaign to encourage disadvantaged white students to take more of an interest in school and AP classes, etc. This campaign would counter the infinite number of anti-white programs and would be far more successful anyway since poor whites are inherently smarter than blacks and Hispanics.

    • slash345

      I agree. One of the best things we as a group of like minded individuals can do is to be charitable to other whites. That’ll really drive unity.

      Actions speak much louder than words. And I intend to donate or volunteer to help struggling white people/families.

  • newscomments70

    There will always be defacto segregation. Liberals forcefully integrate everything, but the more civilized and intelligent will regroup and avoid the lower IQ, badly behaved group. Liberals become so frustrated and apoplectic. “NO! it’s not supposed to be this way! You’re not following the program!” They have to keep changing the rules to fight the equilibrium of human nature.

  • Young Werther

    Such a scam. The College Board is a business, and dubious at that. It is corrupt with politics and kick-backs…it may be the single largest profit making business in the business of national *education*…I think it is now owned by a publishing company (McGraw), though it claims non-profit status…it promotes the Dream Act program whereby it assists illegals in how to navigate their way through colllege admittance programs…for a fee. Everything has a fee and tax payers pay the most fees for the feds and state pay for the testing of students in low income areas…the the law *mandates* all this testing nonsense. For in American Education, testing has become a huge joke that is forced by the feds upon its own unsuspecting citizens…”The College Board” *sounds* so very important doesn’t it?…ha.
    Something America can certainly do without.

  • Since you said “purse” you are evidently not an orc. Are there any female orcs? I don’t always know how to teach folks how to defend themselves. Can you find a self-defense class in your area? It would boost your morale.

    My shoulders and back ache all the time now. Asleep, awake: all day and night. Things are growing.

    I will always fight three of anything. I’ll probably eventually be better at it. My best friend from high school once broke both collarbones on an attacker, just by slamming his open hands down on the guy’s shoulders. If we are 4% Neanderthal, my friend is probably about 40%. He’s Scottish and Ukrainian and literally built like a gorilla. I can’t do it that way, so speed and judgement are what work for me, along with less hitting power.

    If you feel unsafe, please get out of that area. You don’t have to stay there.

  • Thanks for sharing.

    Since the average black graduate reads at an eighth grade level and does math at a sixth grade level (keep in mind that 50% of all blacks drop out, meaning those outside of ghetto schools where the levels are much, much lower are a scarcity, but off course Murray would support this with his bell curve), AP would have to adopt middle school standards in decent schools and upper elementary standards in ghetto schools to start at the level of their black students. Instead of Advanced Placement Rhetoric, let’s be honest and title the class “Advanced Placement Fourth Grade Language Arts.” Walter Williams has pointed out this fraud as well, with examples of black college graduates lacking even the basic skills to enter the teaching profession.
