Education Secretary Touts Teacher Diversity During Atlanta Visit

Molly Bloom and Janel Davis, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 8, 2014

During a visit Monday to Spelman College, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said the country needs to increase the diversity of its teacher workforce to match the diversity of schoolchildren.

A more diverse group of teachers–including more teachers of color and male teachers–better serves all students, he said.

“This is doing the right thing for our nation,” Duncan said.

Making teaching more prestigious, providing more training for teachers, and paying good teachers more would help schools do a better job of attracting and retaining educators of all backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups, he said.

Duncan and first lady Michelle Obama came to Atlanta on Monday to launch the administration’s fifth annual back-to-school bus tour.

    Benedict Duncan wants fewer whites in education….. but I’ll bet he wants no blacks in his community.

    • gemjunior

      Agreed. We should find out where these traitors live and immediately diversify their street when they pull this stuff. See how they like it. But nobody wants to hurt other families. Maybe just a beating….

  • MekongDelta69

    “Arne Duncan says having fewer white teachers would be ‘doing the right thing for our nation.'”

    And I say, “having fewer Arne Duncans wasting perfectly good oxygen the rest of us could put to good use, would be ‘doing the right thing for our nation.'”

    • APaige

      We would have more Black teachers if they could pass the basic skills test. If Black teachers are best for EVERYONE why are Black schools failing?

      • Raymond Kidwell

        I had some good black teachers. They don’t work in the ghettos. the ghetto schools fail because the students don’t care about education, are dumb, and good teachers don’t want to work there because they are underfunded among other things.

        • Tarczan

          That is just not true, at least in Ohio.
          Darkie schools spend more per student than white schools.

          • Raymond Kidwell

            I went to a primarily white school in Florida, although there was a significant minority population. It was solid middle class. I had a really good black teacher whose husband had money. She didn’t even need the money she just taught because she enjoyed it. She was really a good hearted person as well. In all honesty of the three best teachers I had there two were Jewish and one was black. The typical white teachers, most of them at least, were incredibly lazy. Not all of them, but I mean a lot of them would just sit and read the newspaper and collect a pay check. Some of them were on the dumb side but they had to teach in order to coach foot ball.

            In a typical inner city school well nobody wants to work there unless you are like just a really bad teacher and like working somewhere in which you probably won’t get fired. Other than that whether you are black or white why would you work there. The wages are lower, the students are generally bad, etc.

            They do have some programs like if you teach in an inner city school for a couple years you can get your loans forgiven. I guess it’s programs like this one is where a lot of the extra expense goes to but generally the wages are lower in those school districts.

            By contrast though I wouldn’t want to work in a rich district either. I guess some people like it but the parents there treat teachers like they are morons, will argue with the teacher if their son got a B etc. Where unless you are really a good people person you probably would get burned out pretty quickly.

            I never saw a lot of diversity among teachers even though minorities get thousands of extra dollars to go to school and hiring preferences. I have encountered several Indian teachers who seemed really incompetent but due to affirmative action I guess they get hired. In community college I had an Indian math teacher and no one could understand her accent well, and then she would do math problems on the board and get the wrong answer. She gave us homework with the answers on the back and half the answers would be wrong. Then she would laugh and be like “I was just seeing if you were paying attention”. But she didn’t seem to have mastery over the basic skills she was teaching. Then I met another honors teacher who was Indian and the students basically taught themselves and it didn’t seem like she was really contributing much to the discussion.

            Yet the odd thing is people keep trying to portray them as geniuses. It seems kind of odd to me why there is so much anti-white racism. Then going on sites like this I see a lot of “hate blacks” comments that also don’t make much sense. I just think they should have a minimal level of competence required and stick to it, regardless of race.

            I also had a redneck football coach math teacher that couldn’t do the math he was teaching in high school, but after a year they fired him. A lot of the minorities who are similarly incompetent are never fired. Then if they are Asian/Indian they are portrayed as geniuses even when they act incompetently. I really don’t understand the absurd behavior on either end, from the white supremacists or from the white hating affirmative action people who think all non-whites are better than whites and when the non-whites keep failing every test and assessment they just cover it up and blame it on racism.

    • A Freespeechzone

      Let’s be clear—this administration espouses to insure that there will be fewer Whites in the United States of America, period.

      Moreover, that there is a license to attack, rape, and murder Whites with the consent of the government, media and White-hating liberals.

      Until or unless there is a strong backlash, this mindset and the attacks will escalate.

      • Juggernaut3000

        And, we have the Thread Win – nah.

        Congratulations, Freespeechzone.

      • eavesmac

        Actually the local, state, and federal level Justice Depts. benefit greatly from legal fees accrued from social strife that escalates into violence. I wouldn’t be so quick to accredit the black community with the (evil) genius behind the racial strife kick.

  • Haha. Anti-white racist Duncan makes his ridiculous comments in Atlanta, the city where the black teachers and superintendent are on trial for fraud. What a retard Duncan is.

    Replacing intelligent, caring, honest white women teachers with dumb, affirmative action black males and females is “the right thing?” Explain that, Arne. If you can.

    • B.A_2014

      Fewer white women in the classroom means more white women at home creating and raising the next generation. I say go Arne!

      • Partly agree. There are white children in school who should be taught by whites, as a matter of principle. Some white women are barren, thus making them good candidates for teachers. Some white women are widows with no prospects. Teaching is a good way for them to earn a living so as to take care of their children.

        As a general principle, you’re right in stating that white women should be getting pregnant and taking care of their families full time.

        • Ike Eichenberg

          If you elect me king, I will provide for White women with IQs over 115 to have as many children as they desire and provide them with funds for a White nanny to help.

          I will also compensate brown men and women to undergo surgical sterilization.

        • Nancy

          I taught for a few years at a private Christian school that refused to hire any female teachers who had their own children younger than school age at home. After I had my first child, I had to resign. They believed the woman’s primary role was to care for her own children before coming to care for other people’s kids. I was fine with it, but people who heard about it were appalled.

        • Waldemar Daninsky

          It’s low IQ misogynists like yourself who give the conservative movement not only a bad name, but fuel for the libs. Good lord, you provide an easy target for the libs.

      • Jim Kental

        Also, white women were complicit in siding with their brothers and sisters of color against their own kind (sedition runs in white womens’ blood). So now they’re finding out what’s in store for them in their new multiracial dystopia.

        • connorhus

          Exactly…. +1

        • exlib93

        • B.A_2014

          In Orwells 1984 he said the young women were the most the most fantatial members of the party. Today we see our own women are the vanguard of the egalitarian project. But the blame lies chiefly with the men. Women are so gullible and easily manipulated ( I think that is what orwell was trying to say ) but men have no excuse. Women side with the strong and the winners. Our ideas have been so demonized and forced from the public space, no wonder they side with those that offer to them the welfare state, soft sentences, special preferences in the education system and the work place and above all the extortion racket (marriage/divorce ).

          • Juggernaut3000

            Women are guided by genetic instinct. They seek to find the strongest, most intelligent and best providers for any children they may bear.

            The Cultural Marxists have done a good job of portraying White men as weak, sniveling, emasculated losers and have made sure through AA and quotas for all but Whites that Whites cannot earn a living to support themselves, let alone a family.

            Who wants that for the father of their children? At the same time, the Cultural Marxists have portrayed black men as virile, honest, hard working and full of integrity, the exact opposite of what they really are, and promoted them far past their abilities due to government-sanctioned AA measures.

            This is to make blacks look to be better father in the eyes of White women, and from what I can see all around me, it seems to be working.

            It is the anti-White agenda that we must attack and end, it needs a stake driven through its heart – before we are all wiped out, because that is what the Cultural Marxist have in store for us.

          • Augustus3709

            An excellent post. That could be the bullet point script for a superb 4-8 minute informational video with graphics and slow panning pictures.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            What you left out is the concerted effort to portray black men as so much “cooler” than white men AND so much more sexually desirable that a large number of white women are subsequently coerced into relationships with them at young, vulnerable ages. And black men (teens) know how to spot a vulnerable white girl.

          • Raymond Kidwell

    • connorhus

      I say more traditional White Men and less Multi-Cult Feminist brainwasher Women in education… White or Black.

    • archer

      Can anyone imagine him saying fewer black teachers would be good for the nation? The outcry and hand wringing would be going on for months.

      • Juggernaut3000

        Yes, but it would be the truth.

      • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

        What I wonder is why aren’t black doctors fixing the Ebola epidemic, leaving it to inferior and culturally inept whites?

    • Juggernaut3000

      Arne Duncan is a mouthpiece for the Cultural Marxists. He has an exorbitant salary and fat pension and doesn’t want to risk either.

      He, like every other useful idiot, says whatever it is his minders tell him to say to protect himself. Selling out Whites means nothing when it comes to large amounts of money, fame and publicity.

    • Nancy

      When I taught in those Future Inmates of Atlanta downtown in the early 90’s, many black teachers openly resented white teachers in their midst, and were absolutely gleeful when we eventually gave up and left. They were smug and loved to see the white teachers fail. But truly, the black teachers were the only ones who many of those little criminals would listen to at all, because they felt a black woman could take them into the restroom, beat the crap out of them, and nothing would happen to the teacher as a result. Parents sent notes into the school on the first day which read, “Dear Teacher, you have my permission to physically spank my child when he misbehaves.” Unreal.

  • Lewis33

    I couldn’t agree more. We need more black teachers to teach the black kids at their own schools, freeing up good white teachers for white children. It’s hard to think of a bigger waste than a good white teacher teaching inner city savages.

    • TL2014

      Not to mention safety hazard!!

  • Arne Duncan is right. The more black teachers you have, the better the students’ test scores get. Atlanta is the city whose urban public school system proved that!

    • Juggernaut3000

      It worked and worked well when we had separate schools for Whites and blacks.

      Whites were able to put a man on the moon and bring him safely back to earth.

      Now our once-great space agency NASA has turned into nothing more than a Muslim welcoming center.

    • Raymond Kidwell

      We have those already. We have all black schools for black people. All Jewish schools for Jews. We even have all hispanic schools taught in spanish and all Asian schools. All white schools are racist however and need to be immediately diversified. It goes along with the little chinas, historically black districts etc. that contribute to diversity while a white neighborhood only contributes to racism.

      I mean really I would think you guys would have understood this by now.

  • dd121

    What they’re saying in essence is that you need a black teacher to teach a negro kid. What if white’s said that whites should only be educated by whites? They just don’t seem to see any irony in their stupidity.

      You would be called a Nazi who wants to clone Hitler and tomorrow you wouldn’t have a job. You’d be lucky if you’re allowed to keep your pension, because that’s the next thing the Cultural Marxists are going after to keep you quiet and compliant.

  • journey

    Who were teaching the black kids prior to “integration”? If mainly blacks, so we have gone full circle. Now, just need to have all the blacks go to black schools. And all the blacks live in black neighborhoods. Just like before! After all, blacks flourish best when among their own people. Then the next logical step, they should all self-deport back to Africa.

    • Melvin Bonzarelli

      Most blacks did not want integration of the schools. What they wanted were more and better resources for the black schools, as promised but never delivered in the ‘Separate but Equal’ philosophy pre-1965. It was the white liberals, media moguls, and leftists, who sent (and still send) their own children to private schools and would have had a stroke if black families started moving into their neighborhood who were pushing school integration. They knew full well the chaos and racial animosity this would engender, and wanted integration for that reason.

      • Who Me?

        Parents who send their defenseless White children to schools with more than 25% black students or ANY black teachers/administrators ought to be brought up on charges of facilitating child abuse.

        • bilderbuster

          The Whites who have no choice but to send their kids to public schools know that if they refuse they can go to jail and have their children taken away from them.

            With the same plan of action. 66 million White Russians were liquidated without a trace in the old Soviet Republic. As it was there, so shall it be here because the same people are implementing the same “revolution,” albeit more slowly and quietly but with the same end result; and they’re winning. The bloodshed will come after the revolution is complete, and make no mistake, it IS a revolution and there will be bloodshed, White bloodshed, a lot of it.

        • none of your business

          Not sending your child to school is considered child abuse and the kids can be sent to the ghastly foster home system. Home schooling has not really become approved until the last 15 years.

          And if both parents absolutely have to work for basic food, shelter and cars to get to work homeschooling is not an option unless one can get a night shift.

          • anony

            Every State has rules about home-schooling. We home-schooled our four children successfully. My wife was a stay-at-home mom which made it easier, yes, but we are also minimalists and raised our children to be minimalists as well.

            Minimalism means not buying (pun intended) into the rampant consumerism that drives America.

            Get rid of the tv, magazines, etc. and start taking up hobbies that do not require spending lots of money. You’ll find that you can afford to do lots of much more valuable things like spending more time with your children, and you’ll be learning more.

      • Nancy

        Sending them “more and better resources” is like flushing money down the crapper. When I first read about the blacks’ “old textbooks” and “broken materials” pre-integration, it reminded me immediately of how those little savages DESTROYED every nice thing I purchased for them for our classroom (with my own money). They ripped pages out of books, destroyed or stole art supplies, even broke the in-class computers. Then I saw a news report (about a year ago) about a black school that received new computers a few years prior, and the blacks were incensed because the computers didn’t work.

        Of course they didn’t! The children broke them all! DUH.

        But the news report made it seem like they got “substandard” equipment, which they did not. It was brand new. Black schoolchildren do not appreciate new things, and break them just for the hell of it. I saw it myself. Of COURSE pre-integration blacks wanted “more and better resources”…they always do. What you don’t see, of course, are any positive results coming from such an extravagantly foolish waste of money.

        • Augustus3709

          Liberalism is a money laundering scheme. They keep lying in order to soak up more public funds.

      • OS-Q

        Parents of both races didn’t want their kids to have an extra hour or two added to the bus ride to and from school. Getting a child up at 6:00 AM and having them come home at 5:00 PM (this is without extra-curricular activities) is a giant pain, especially to parents that work long shifts themselves. In the winter in Northern states, children wouldn’t have any daylight hours to themselves thanks to busing.

        • Nancy

          OS-Q, did you hear what some of the metro-Atlanta counties (including ours) did to make up the extra “snow days” the kids missed last winter due to that disastrous ice storm? We weren’t required to make up the two days, by any means. They could have just let it go. Instead, these school board idiots decided to tack on an extra half hour to every school day for two months, which meant I didn’t see my middle schooler in the evenings until after 5 pm when the bus showed up.

          Morons, every one of these school board members.

          • OS-Q

            You have my sympathy. Wouldn’t that amount to about something about an extra 30-40 hours as opposed to just the 14 that was missing? Just a bizarre choice

          • none of your business

            I met a black woman who grew up as far south east as one can get in Los Angeles and still be within city limits. For middle and high school she was bused as far northwest as one can get and not be in the Pacific ocean. 60 miles each way, 120 miles per day. She was in all the high school sports team, got the last 5/pm bus and got home at 7/pm every school day for 4 years. To add further insult, one English teacher gave assignments that could only be done in a public library. Her local library hours were 10 to 6 except for 2 days a week 12 to 8.
            25 years later she still hates those years.

    • [Guest]

      They wouldn’t self-deport because they know full well that they’re living infinitely above their abilities because of white people in a nation created and built by white people. Of course, they’d never admit that, though.

  • Mary

    I unfortunately attended an elementary school in the early 80s that bussed in a bunch of unruly black kids. Although the school was located in a mostly White suburb, the school was probably nearly 30% black due to this policy. However, most of the black kids were placed in classrooms with black teachers. The smarter and better behaved black students were usually placed in White classrooms. This worked out reasonably well for everyone, though I’m certain they could not get away with it nowadays.

    • Dave West

      Leave it to black activists and their self hating white liberal enablers to complain about anything that is working well.

    • Melvin Bonzarelli

      I go back a bit further than you, and in my racially-mixed high school we had two ‘discipline teachers’. When white kids really got out of line, they were sent to the white discipline teacher, a former marine who, rumor had it, had left the Marines with a psychiatric discharge. The black discipline teacher was the auto shop teacher, and rumor had it that he had once lifted the entire engine block out of a junked car with his bare hands. His method of discipline was to beat the living daylights out of the unruly black student unfortunate enough to be sent to him. And if the student’s parents came into complain, he’d whack them around too. At least that was the word around school. Needless to say, the black students pretty much kept to themselves and behaved themselves as much as they were capable of doing.

    • Nancy

      You just reminded me of something that happened when I was teaching in an all-black school around 1990. One of our mandated field trips was to the ATL Botanical Gardens (I say mandated because the state forced us to take these little savages out in public three times per year, a task normal white teachers look forward to doing in white schools, but teachers in black schools HATE doing).

      We arrived about 15-20 min before they opened, and were just about to unload the kids when this little old white volunteer came out, hand-wringing and tittering about how “we have to go away and come back when they open”, that the students aren’t allowed to sit on the sidewalk outside the front gate and wait.

      So we made the bus drivers drive around the block several times until closer to the time of the opening…and when we got back to the front gate, about 200 WHITE kids from whatever white school system was sitting on the sidewalk, quiet and behaved, waiting for it to open. The black teachers came unglued, of course, and went in to yell at someone in charge about their “racist” policy. But everyone knew what would’ve happened if they let those black heathens sit out front for 20 minutes: things would be torn up, broken, fights and shouting would ensue…and they’d “scare away” any white patrons.

      • none of your business

        Now I’m retired I go to museums sometimes during the work week. It is a blast to see the different kids. Whites, hispanics and asians are quiet, well behaved and are obviously obeying instructions to be quiet and well behaved.
        The blacks, just charge out of the buses screeching and jumping around and hoot and howl the entire day. I remember once in summer. A black day care group came along in their day care T shirts “Culver City” It was about 4/pm rush hour. They saw the distinctive green Culver City bus and
        just charged across a busy 6 lane street against the red light with their black park district workers screaming at them to stop.
        One problem with those summer day camp programs in even suburban parks is that most of the counselors are often black. Not good.

  • Dave West

    Whenever libtard whites and blacks complain that “racist police departments needs to hire more blacks,” “hire more teachers of color.” They assume that blacks and hispanics are just clamoring and waiting patiently in line by the thousands to be hired; but are turned down by “racist” whites not wanting to give them a job. The reality is very few blacks and to a lesser extent hispanics apply for these jobs; especially when it comes to cops.

      Now to be fair, what’s a wiser course of action: teaching the times tables to Jenteal Ghettopotumus, or pretending to teach them?

        Jenteal Ghettopotumus CAN’T be taught the times table, so pretending is the best any teacher can do.

        • Nancy

          We spent 90% of our time and energy in those ghetto schools trying to make the kids behave. IF we had any time or energy left, it was attempting to teach them something. A successful day was one where no fistfights broke out, or one where you didn’t have to push the “panic button” on the wall for reinforcements.

          On their part, 70% of their time was spent attempting to avoid work; the other 30% was spent looking to stir up trouble. I hadn’t thought about that in years, until I recently read “Negroes in Negroland”, when one missionary/explorer wrote about the Africans spending most of their time avoiding work, and the remainder of their time “in intrigue”. I wasn’t sure exactly what he meant, but the dictionary described “intrigue” in this sense to mean “the secret plans to do something illicit or detrimental to someone.”

    “A more diverse group of teachers–including more teachers of color and male teachers–better serves all students, he said.”

    =====

    Diversity is an insurmountable challenge for any profession — even public school teaching — for reasons succinctly illustrated below:

    “By the time [non-Asian minority students] reach grade 12, if they do so at all, minority students are about four years behind other young people. Indeed, 17 year-old African American and Latino students have skills in English, mathematics and science similar to those of 13-year-old white students.” (Education Trust, “Closing the Achievement Gap,” National Governors Association Clearinghouse, 2002, 9th paragraph)

    • Ike Eichenberg

      Shockingly and I’m sure totally unrelated the average 18 yo black has the equivalent mental power of a 14 yo White.

      • Who Me?

        I don’t believe any 13 or 14 y.o. White child has as little grasp of English, math and other skills as an 18 y.o. black. Eighteen year old blacks seem to have the educational grasp of the normal 7 or 8 y.o. White child, and often the vocabulary (except for foul words) of the average 3 y.o .White child.

        • Ike Eichenberg

          I believe you’re right.
          Our education model does not work for the average sub Saharan youth.
          They need a much simpler format with much more harsh behavioral correction methods than are currently utilized to achieve the education of a White 4 years younger.

        • Nancy

          I agree. After 20 years of teaching, I concluded that the darker-skinned the black student, the slower he seemed to be.

          Also, I had third grade blacks who should have been in 5th grade (having failed twice already) who could barely read Dr. Seuss, and a 20-year-old 12th grader who I had to FORCE to read “The Giver”, a book I typically taught to 5th graders. In fact, I read much of it out loud to him. Still, he had very little grasp of the major events and main ideas of the story.

      • Augustus3709

        In the 19th century they did experiments with Africans where Whites gave them a top notch education, and they came to the conclusion that the pure African’s brain solidifies around 14 years old, and can no longer advance.

        The miscegenated ones might have a couple more years of maturity due to White admixture, but that really is an eye-opener, to realize that the average black is trapped with the mind and emotions of a teenager, forever.

        • Tarczan

          An excellent observation. Do you have any more information on those experiments?

          The early teen years seem to be troublesome for all races, but the the blacks never seem to outgrow it.

          • Augustus3709

            In one specific case an African boy, perhaps one that showed promise, was taken to England where he received strict tutoring and education. Under these conditions blacks in general were shown to be able to speak and write the language well. They seemingly learned the materials at the rate along side Whites. But around the early teen years the black pupils start to struggle as the material become more advanced, while the White pupils went forward normally.

            The assumed reason for this is that Africans mature faster. However, those who mature slower also mature to a greater extent. An analogy would be: Africans have a faster acceleration, but a lower top speed.

    Atlanta, isn’t that where many Black teachers, principals, and an award winning Black administrator were caught cheating – erasing the incorrect answers of their student and marking the correct answer instead? (They probably had to use the answer sheet to know the correct answer.) But with all the cheating, Black scores rose!
    The Obama Administration does not care if school children of any color learn; they want Blacks to get higher scores, more paper diplomas, more affirmative action degrees, and the election of more affirmative action, hate-whitey, Black racist tyrants.

    The same things that are holding down the number of blacks eligible to get jobs in law enforcement are the same things that are keeping blacks, particularly the males of the species, from qualifying for teaching jobs:
    1. Inability to read above a second-grade level
    2. A criminal record as long as Obama’s arm – including violent felony convictions and stretches in state prison
    3. Inability to pass random drug screening tests.

      Yup. Anyone that has done any hiring in an area with a significant black population is aware of these facts. In fact 3 of the 4 on your list were explicitly given to me as reasons why we couldn’t fill vacant hospital janitorial jobs.

      Reading was the biggest issue, blacks simply couldn’t pass a reading exam set at an 8th grade level.

    • Juggernaut3000

      Also blacks have an inability to control themselves because they are driven by impulse due to their shrunken frontal lobes.

      How many times have we heard about a black vile murderer of Whites: He was a good boy. He was on his way to college. He was turning his life around. He’d found the lord and studying the Bible. He was an honor student.

    So very glad to be honored by Moochelle’s presence. I work in downtown Atlanta, and I was leaving work around 3:30 PM when I saw the entrance to 75/85 north blocked by GA State Patrol vehicles. Fortunately, I was heading southbound. The entire northbound highway for the few miles I was on it was completely shut down, with more officers blocking other entrance ramps. When I got on 20, it was backed up for miles. Isn’t that special? She thinks she’s as important as the president and that all those peons trying to get home from work are unimportant.

Graduates of Swampwater on the other hand, save lots of time and money and never have to write a dissertation. Because Schools of “Education” are generally considered the Rodney Dangerfield of academic departments, even credentials from a place like Swampwater will get you that highly coveted impramatur of “Doctor” and you can become a 150k a year hack.

    Don’t you all get it? TPTB know that Blacks are stupid. Every single thing that they do is designed to put off the inevitable for as long as they can. Or, I guess, until the NWO takes over. TPTB do not care that AA jobs have resulted in a dramatic decline in the quality of life in the US, or, indeed, every White country. Our society has become loathsome as it is currently constituted. For some reason, it has become necessary to include all races in the civilization of Whites. Initially, this took the somewhat benign form of encouraging talented people of other races to become participants in our divine culture. Now, this effort to include other races has degenerated into actually CHANGING the history of the world to make other races seem to have contributed more to the Earth’s civilization than in fact they have. What in fact is even worse: White folk tales, history, legends, fairy tales, are amended to accommodate current pc attitudes of inclusion. A black Thor? We all know the other examples. What’s sad, is that the black race appears to have NO folk tales, fairy tales, legends. And, if they do? Why the hell don’t they make their own damn movies? I no longer care about black people. I no longer care about anybody other than White people. I AM DONE. I don’t care who has Ebola in Africa. I don’t care who is starving.We White people are only approx. twelve percent of the population of the Earth. And, yet, we are one hundred percent responsible for EVERYBODY!!!! Even if you think your country is free enterprise, trust me, the “White Man’s Burden”, has reduced all of us into socialist slaves. We Whites have been paying for dysfunctional blacks since we discovered their savage asses.

      “Now, this effort to include other races has degenerated into actually CHANGING the history of the world to make other races seem to have contributed more to the Earth’s civilization than in fact they have.”
      Ricardo Duchesne, a white historian with a heavy Spanish accent (he was born in Puerto Rico), elaborates on this point in a two-hour interview for Red Ice Radio, which you can listen to in its entirety at the Occidental Observer video archives. Compelling.

    • Juggernaut3000

      You’ve reiterated the Cultural Marxists’ main message very well.

      Always remember their main goal is the complete and total eradication of the White Race from the face of the earth. Nothing else matters to them and why they demand that White countries keep their borders wide open to the 3rd world.

      “For some reason, it has become necessary to include all races in the civilization of Whites”

      The only purpose in doing this is to further debase and eliminate Whites and White accomplishments, not to puff up blacks or browns. Blacks and browns to those who control the levers of power in this sick country are nothing more than useful idiots and a new slave-worker class and will be eliminated if and when it becomes necessary.

(Many blacks seem to have great difficulty in telling the difference between a 8 year old and an 18 year old.)

    I just saw this entry on Daily Stormer. It is about a Chicago man ( no need to tell you what his race is ) who stabbed a gorgeous 14 year old white girl named Kelli O’Laughlin to death, and then sent multiple taunting messages to the victim’s mother, let alone hide or feel guilty.

    And then his lawyer insisted that Kelli stabbed herself to death.

    A few days ago, I commented that I am amazed how such morons became lawyers, and this criminal’s lawyer said that this fourteen year old girl stabbed herself to death.

    Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy on earth would a 14 year old girl want to stab herself to death?

    Does that defence attorney think the IQ of the judge and the jury is around 50? Or is that attorney’s IQ around 50? Once again I continue to be amazed how many of those attorneys are pure morons and bewildered and perplexed how those morons became lawyers, to begin with!

    And the recorded texting conversation obviously indicates that she was murdered by someone, and why is that attorney continuing to insist that the girl killed herself?

    “Hello Brenda”

    “Love your pic”

    “She wanted me to tell you something before I killed her.”

    “Think I’m in love with you Bren”

    At first she did not respond while her husband called investigators, O’Laughlin told jurors at the murder trial of John Wilson Jr. But then she got another one.

    “You got 2 min to text me before I break this phone.”

    She replied, “Who are you and what do you want?”

    The answer, “You will know soon when I come see you.”

    My fantasy is that Mr. Duncan’s comments, with context, could be lodged in a Wayback Machine, and made part of the record before Congress, as it considered the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Even that Congress would have recoiled in horror.

  • Reverend Bacon

    Bla Bla Bla. I think for each profession we should calculate an average IQ, and compare “diversity” goals accordingly. For example, suppose teaching should have an IQ of about 115, or 1 sigma higher than the white norm, or 2 sigmas higher for blacks. This tells us that 16% of whites, and about 2.2% of blacks, will qualify to be teachers. Since blacks are about 12% of the population, and whites about 65%, we would expect a profession ratio of (.65 x .16) to (.12 x .022), or .104 to .0026. So there should be about 40 times as many whites as blacks in the profession of teaching, and if for some reason there aren’t, there might be a valid claim for discrimination.

    When one looks at it that way, it’s much clearer that there’s no discrimination against blacks, and in fact probably discrimination in their favor.

    Any white person who says they want more diversity has ample opportunity in this country to give up their job to a non-white person, move to a majority non-white neighborhood, and send their kid to a majority non-white school.

    They can make their dream a reality and live the way they say they want to live today. There’s nothing holding them back.

    What they shouldn’t do is tell other white people how to live. It’s safe to say that a white person who choses not to live the “diverse lifestyle” DOESN’T WANT TO.

    And frankly, if you’re espousing diversity but not living it yourself, then stfu.

    Private schools are as bad or even worse than the public schools. 2 nieces went to a private, not parish $40,000 per year per kid Catholic school. The 4th grade teacher was a jew. She decided to abolish all Christmas celebrations in the class because of 1, just 1 indian kid. Like most ignorant anti White liberals she assumed the kid was hindu or muslem. He was not. He was an indian Christian from that ancient sect that claims to have been converted a few years after Jesus died by St. Thomas the apostle.

    Parents found a new private school during Christmas vacation and pulled both girls out.
    Catholic parish schools often have “sister parish schools” in mexico and the kids are encouraged/pressured to donate toys and clothes in good condition to send to the mexican kids. I assume the Lutheran ones are as bad. I assume the Christian schools in the southern bible belt still focus on education instead of liberal indoctrination. Personally, I would rather send my kids to a bible belt Christian school and have them taught the earth was created in 7 days by the old man in the
    sky than send them to a top prep school for liberal indoctrination.

    The old line eastern prep schools like Andover Milton St’ pauls are even more disgustingly liberal than harvard or Yale. And the old line eastern prep schools just sit back and take it when their superbly qualified Christian White goy boys are rejected by the 50 top universities because of affirmative action.

      Christian schools are a lot worse than your normal private schools. Your better elite level private schools are pretty good. Yet cultural marxism is a prevalent part of the Christian ideology so you will get some extreme leftists and religious nut jobs at some of the private christian schools.

      My rich distant relatives send their kids to private schools where they can speak a second language fluently by eighth grade. They have less leftist bias than normal schools as well, but I guess the bias is going to be present everywhere as different people have different beliefs.
