Civil Rights at School

Editorial Board, New York Times, October 29, 2014

Earlier this month, Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, sent what he described as “guidance” to states and school districts reminding them of their obligation to provide schoolchildren with equal resources regardless of race. The guidance, in the form of a “Dear Colleague” letter, invoked the Supreme Court’s landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision in warning that school districts that shunted minority kids to inferior schools could be held accountable under federal civil rights law.

He had numbers to back up the threat. The letter noted, for example, that schools serving the most students of color were less likely to have high-level courses and that nearly one in five black high school students attend high schools that do not offer Advanced Placement courses–a higher proportion than any other racial group. Only two-thirds of black students attend a high school that offers calculus, compared with 81 percent of white students and 87 percent of Asian students. Students of color are also more likely to attend schools with lower-quality facilities, like temporary classrooms.

The Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights currently has 40 open investigations prompted by concerns that districts had shortchanged minority students in access to qualified teachers, programs for the gifted and talented, science classes, college and career readiness courses and other resources. In addition, the department is monitoring compliance agreements with 18 other districts that have adopted plans to redress inequities.

      Sweet baby Jesus and the orphans! The Negro undertow can barely manage to emerge from our ‘fine’ public schools with the minimal knowledge of a third grader. How is it that this insane Arne Duncan creature is allowed to speak on school policy and spending? He should be in a padded cell, on a schedule of psychotropic drugs to help with his ‘condition’.
      Here he is below, showing the actual size of his diseased brain….

        He looks like the kind of sleaze that would encourage his daughters to date Negroes, just to parade the half-breed spawn at campaign rallies.

            Well, something sure ain’t right with that guy…

    • Anna Tree

      They can’t accept that not everybody is built for academic studies, moreover the reasons for this. I think that the educational approach that forced kids to stay in the academic path, is flawed. It ends disadvantaging children who are not successful in the school system AND children who are, when it forces them together in the classroom. Actually the next step already in place is that the former gets extra teaching that is not helping them, while the latter, including the very bright ones, are denied them (of course discrimination, beside that they reject that we are not created equal while destroying equality in front of the law.) This will decrease a bit the race gap and our future achievements… obviously the goal.

      Found this to sum it all:

  • Truthseeker

    Sure, give Blacks more advanced programs. And when it becomes clear most of them can’t handle work at that level, they’ll dumb down the courses so that Blacks will pass, thereby devaluing them. When a bright student with a 4.0 GPA at a good school and a barely-literate Black at a ghetto school can both claim to have passed “AP” courses, the designation itself will be meaningless.

    • Anglokraut

      Much like those “college-level Spanish courses” that are offered at heavily-Mestizo high schools. When the muchachos/as find out that the gutter Spanish they have spoken their whole lives is ridiculously pidgin, they complain that the class isn’t taught by a “true Latino/a” who understands their culture.

      • Who Me?

        The Spanglish they learn in Mexico is to Spanish what Ebonics is to English here.

      • phillyguy

        of course they don’t speak Castilian.

        • Anglokraut

          I don’t speak the Queen’s English–but when I speak or write, I am regarded usually as intelligible and educated. I knew it was critically important to be able to express myself well through the spoken and written word. Even if I were a Mexican of European descent I would still understand the need to be well-educated in Spanish, with or without the lisping accent.

        • Who Me?

          My high school Spanish teacher was a tall, blue-eyed redhead. Of course the round browns in class screamed like banshees… I only had to take one quarter.

      • Garrett Brown

        They speak Spanish like Negroes/Mestizos speak Portuguese in Brazil, English in America etc.

      • Breaker Morant

        That’s funny as hell. I was taking Spanish to fulfill the foreign language requirement for my MA, and I used to practice conjugating spanish verbs at work. The mexicans told me I was nuts, that no one in Mexico spoke that way. One day a mexican woman that I worked with, whom I respect very much, shouted all of them down and conjugated the verbs up and down and sideways in front of them. She had been a schoolteacher in mexico. They told her she was loco.

        • American textbook Spanish is Castilian, basically the way the refined classes in Madrid speak.

    • Or what they’ll do is course title inflation: Call the class “Calculus” but it won’t actually be calculus. Black schools are known for that.

      • Adolf Verloc

        “Pre-calculus” is a favorite. It can mean almost anything from arithmetic to trigonometry and advanced algebra.

      • robinbishop34

        I took a college algebra class and it was referred to as pre-calculus. My nephew who just graduated from Rolla with a double major in engineering and computer science came home one Christmas break and I showed him a study guide I had for an upcoming final. He furrowed his brow and said “this is calculus.” It was hard as hell but I eeked out an A.

      Some private schools have already figured that out. In Georgia, any parent of a student with an IEP (an “Individualized Education Program”, a euphemism for a Special Ed. label) can demand the state pay for “adequate learning programs” at private schools, if they’re unhappy with the programs offered at their local public school. Most private schools won’t touch an IEP kid with a 40-foot pole, but I ended up working for a year at a private “Christian” school that allowed the IEP students to enroll. The administrator quickly saw the Special Ed students as an “easy guaranteed tuition payment” from the state of Georgia, the same way some selfish landlords rent their properties to Section 8 residents.

      That school was nothing but a “guaranteed good transcript” factory for its students, even though most high school juniors and seniors were struggling to pass such no-brainer classes as “consumer math” (forget Trig or Calculus…that’s out of the question for these duds). Students in any class were allowed to retake every test that they failed, so there was zero incentive to study the first time around, and just doubled the teachers’ paperwork. I can’t believe they’re still in business, as they’ve pushed out all their decent students years ago, and scare away any prospective students with a “C” average or above.

  • Luca

    What a shame. they are not offering the negroes calculus courses. I would imagine most schools are having a hard enough time getting 10th grade negroes to read at a third grade level.

    This shows they really have a handle on the academic problems facing teachers and their African students. This is why we get stellar performance from government run schools.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      The recent scandal at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is more than enough evidence to show that negroes simply can’t handle the majority of high level intellectual endeavors. A mule doesn’t need to know how to solve quadratic equations, solve non-linear algebra, postulate theorems about how the universe might be imploding rather than expanding, sketch out poetry like Emily Dickenson, compose concertos like Chopin. He needs to be able to haul manure. And it really doesn’t matter how fast he moves because both you and the mule know nothing, and I mean nothing, is going to cause him to move his tail any faster.

      • none of your business

        They don’t need to haul manure anymore. They have the manure gutters with electric rollers that deposit the manure directly into the manure spreader. Some of the gutters even have a way that automatically hoses it down once a day.
        OFE obsolete farm equipment.

        • Ron Cheaters

          My neighbor’s got a system where manure in his barn gets high pressure sprayed 2-times a day. The manure flows into gutters down a hill and collects in a reservoir.

          All he has to do is park the spreader underneath the spout and turn on the tap until its full and he’s good to go. Only work needed is a little maintenance.

          • none of your business

            That’s like my brothers system except that the barn is on a little elevation so the manure just goes out a little door right into the spreader.

  • warning that school districts that shunted minority kids to inferior schools could be held accountable under federal civil rights law

    And:

    The letter noted, for example, that schools serving the most students of color were less likely to have high-level courses

    Because we are not racial egalitarians, we see the error of tautological reasoning with these arguments.

    Only two-thirds of black students attend a high school that offers calculus, compared with 81 percent of white students and 87 percent of Asian students.

    And even that doesn’t tell the whole story. A few years ago I read an article out of Portland, Oregon, that said that the number of black student enrolled in calculus classes in the state’s public high schools was a number fewer than 10, i.e. single digits. It also said that the state’s public high school with the highest black enrollment, a school in the Portland district, had no blacks taking calculus. Even if two thirds of black students attend a high school that gives calculus, it doesn’t mean that they’re going to take it.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      It’s all enough to make you think that the whole system is being dumbed down on purpose. Our rulers fear intelligent, questioning minds, so they actively increase the gene pool by swamping it with non-whites. Makes sense when you put the pieces together, no?

      • TL2014

        It really does. And indeed, I read somewhere that average IQ in the developed world is sinking. Of course, no one would mention the obvious reason why that is so.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Ain’t that funny? Out-of-touch Arne Duncan actually believes negroes will stampede to sign up for those advanced math courses they have been deprived of, hah. But we evil white racists know better, don’t we? We know that in reality negroes tremble with fear and worry at the thought of having to enroll in– and pass– a calculus course. (The blacks are probably cursing this dumb white liberal Duncan for opening this can of worms.)

      • Who Me?

        I truly believe that the laws passed during slavery against “letting” negroes attend school were actually laws preventing cruelty to slaves. They HATE going to school every day as it is, and drop out at the first chance they get. Their owners were simply restrained from cruelly forcing them to sit in a classroom for hours every day, for the slaves own protection.

        • I bet there’s some truth to that, but I think the better explanation is the Alexander Pope doctrine, that a little learning can be a dangerous thing. The slave owning class didn’t want their black slaves to be educated because they knew they would be “educated” with insurrectionist agitprop, and everyone had the events of Haiti earlier in that century on their minds.

          All you have to do to understand how right they were about that is to understand the ridiculous things that blacks today wind up believing.

  • Jaggers

    We really need a race realist in the position of Secretary of Education. It would save educators a lot of heartache.

        • WR_the_realist

          Yes, it was. And people are so dumb today that when on other forums I argue in favor of getting rid of the Department of Education they think that means that we won’t have public schools anymore.

  • RacialRay

    I am reminded of the old adage about how you can lead a homeboy to math, but you can’t make him understand it. Or something like that. How is it ‘unfair’ or ‘unequal’ if they just don’t want it and wouldn’t sign up for it anyway?

    • With math, you either get it or you don’t.

      Differential equations textbooks can have all the socially conscious sidebars the authors want about how a mulatto scientist solved a differential equation to make peanut goop. But if you’re black and don’t have the innate aptitude to grasp differential equations, then the socially conscious sidebars are of no use to you.

        Not even the magic negros want any truck with diff-eqs.

  • AmericanCitizen

    Maybe the simplest answer is correct. Most inner city blacks are not interested in higher education due to living in a culture that glorifies ignorance. Combine that with lower IQ, minimal problem solving skills (that don’t involve violence) and an internal resistance to hard work and perseverance, and you have the inner city black.

    Keep in mind that the cash registers in McDonalds have pictures on the keypad for a valid reason.

    • Anglokraut

      I think you may have that backwards; the “thug life” isn’t what makes Negroes disinterested in learning–it’s the low I.Q.. Plenty of Whites came from violence, poverty, and disease to become great minds, but the difference is that people like Da Vinci, Galileo, Newton, and Hawking were already intelligent and curious. No school can teach those qualities.

      • DiversityIsDeath

        Bingo. Genetics drives culture, not the other way around.

  • none of your business

    Well, we’ve now got affirmative action black air traffic controllers who can and will kill 300 people at a time so what’s wrong with affirmative action engineers and scientists? I mean, equal protection means all blacks and browns are entitled to anything their hearts desire, Asians are entitled to what they earn and Whites are entitled to nothing.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Yep. They think that if they just offer advanced classes, blacks will magically be able to do the work in them. In reality, most blacks don’t want to take advanced classes and, if forced to, cannot do well in them.

      In my high school, everyone had to take certain advanced classes, even if they didn’t want to. There was a lot of complaints about this from the low-IQ kids (of all races, but disproportionately black) because they didn’t want to do extra work.

      In the end, the classes got dumbed down until enough minorities could squeak by. The administration would have made considerable trouble for the teachers if they had graded each student by their true merit.

      I wonder how much say NASA has with respect to the technology now utilized by the privately owned rocket builders. Some, I should think, Read an article last night about the mishap on launch. Seems the rocket builder/ operator equipped that vehicle with Soviet built engines that were some 55 years old. May not have been the best choice if you are looking for BIG thrust. Don’t get me wrong- The USSR built some Very enduring, stout-for-hell aerospace equipment. Bear bombers, for example. Procuring parts for machinery that old might present a serious problem, however.

  • Dave West

    So lets see; the vast majority of blacks and hispanics struggle to be proficient even in REGULAR classes, so the solution must be to add more ADVANCED placement classes, these advanced classes will magically motivate students in inner-city schools. Makes a lot of sense, right?

      I voted early by mail. The city wanted – yes more – money to do some roadwork that we approved four years ago and which wasn’t done, so I voted “no”. Shove it and love it. I also voted “no” on the “Personhood Act”. This seemed fine on the surface, as it would allow two separate murder charges if a criminal kills a pregnant women, but it would also allow the felony prosecution of any doctor who performs an abortion. Nope on that one.

    “warning that school districts that shunted minority kids to inferior schools could be held accountable under federal civil rights law”

    Oooohhh, the Federal Government threat to not only ruin your life with a lawsuit, but also to brand you as a racist for failing to do the impossible. Simply, minority kids will always disproportionately be in an inferior schools because minority kids create inferior schools through their disturbances, violence, and lack of aptitude.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Additionally, whenever a school becomes majority-minority, the remaining whites quickly flee to other school districts, or pay for private school. It’s just not possible to have schools that are 50% white and 50% black like the FedGov wants. The black kids are just too violent and low-achieving for white parents to leave their kids around them.

    Ontario did this crap just after I left school. It used to be called “streaming” – a student could CHOOSE between taking basic, general, or advanced courses.

    But some dogs thought that this was too exclusive, and got rid of streaming a year after I left high school. I always thought this was a bad idea, because Advanced courses were boring enough in their lack of detail. I can only imagine how dull General and Basic courses were.

    After 1987 or so, I can only imagine that kids that came out of the systerm are nothing more than neo-Hitler Youth, indoctrinated by NewThink.

  • Rick O’Shea

    I think we need to rework the IQ tests and race balance them so that everyone comes out with a score of 300. Why? Well, it’s been shown conclusively that there are disparities in who are getting the higher scores, and it’s also been shown time and time again that getting a lower score than the maximum can be disappointing for people.

    The self-esteem boost and benefits to race equality which could be achieved if everyone got a 300 are impossible to overstate. I think it could really be what finally instills the necessary confidence in our struggling inner-city youths. Once they know they have a 300 IQ, they will know they can achieve anything academically. Especially in these new AP classes we will similarly tinker with.

    I’ve heard some people push back against my plan by saying that IQ tests are meaningless if everyone has a 300 and I’m not an unreasonable man. I’ve heard these complaints and I get it. In light of this, I’m prepared to exempt white heterosexual males from this program and allow them to keep getting scores in the 100’s as they do now, because frankly it would teach them important lessons about humility and what it’s like to not be top dog. It would be educational for them to realize they have a lower IQ than Trontravius and Miguel for a change. These patriarchal oppressors could stand to be knocked down a peg.

    • LaughsAtHumans

      Honestly, I don’t don’t know what kind of IQ test I’d match up to, and honestly do not care.

      My only concern is whether other species match up to current, and ever changing, requirements of IQ to be a “person”.

      And from what I’ve seen, I have no more business recognizing a stone-ager primate over being a person, over any other borderline wild animal.

      I know I don’t have to care about my IQ because I have automagic personhood armour from being genetically human. But what about non-humans who show as much as, or more, clever initiative than me, who can’t be considered human just because of species membership? (IQ has nothing to do with it, because the lowest IQ humans will be deemed to have rights over the highest IQ non-human just on species membership basis.)

      You’re not far from the truth here in your sarcasm, the only thing keeping us from such an insane world is that Liberals aren’t epistemological consistent. If they had their way we would have an entirely planned economy, jobs would be distributed not upon merit or skill but rather to fulfill their insane vision. A factory where all the engineers and supervisors are minorities and women, and the low level manual tasks are carried out by white males.

    embracing
    the third worlder, and accommodating him, marks only a backslide on our
    own culture, We fought for decades against woman discrimination –
    third world cultures just want to bring that back.

    And Muslims
    argue over whether they really need mountains to throw gays from, or
    whether high buildings will do. Sad. Keep Muslims out of Canada,
    please, I don’t wanna see my stupid-ass gay son thrown off the Ren Cen coz of Islam.

    Who is willing to redress the iniquity of White displacement?

  • Den Christe

    A month ago Campus Reform reported that whistle-blowers were
    alleging a major race-based cheating scandal at the historically
    black college Winston-Salem State University [WSSU].

    The main whistle-blower is Shira Hedgepeth. WSSU had promoted to
    director of academic technology. A black employee, who was angry that
    the job was given to a white person, began harassing her. When she
    complained about the harassment, she was fired. Last
    September, the EEOC office in Greensboro, NC ruled that race
    was a factor in her being fired. Her case is now at the
    Federal level.

    Now Hedgepeth gives all the details about race-based misconduct in
    an article published by the John Pope Center for Higher Education
    Policy…

    I worked at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) for
    more than four years, rising to the post of director of academic
    technology in the school’s Information Technology Department. My
    first position at the school was that of instructional designer in
    the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, which had
    been formed to address growing concern over student failure rates.

    During my first year at WSSU (which is one of five
    historically black colleges and universities in the UNC system),
    several troubling issues became apparent.

    Many of the entering students were not prepared for
    college and required remediation before they were able to take
    regular college courses. Thus, many of these students were unable to
    make it through to graduation and that put pressure on the university
    and faculty to increase success rates. The university’s
    four-year graduation rate for the university was a mere 14 percent.
    Since funding from the state is based on graduation rates and a
    school’s accreditation can be jeopardized by low rates, campus
    officials were extremely concerned.

    Because of WSSU’s low graduation rate, school officials
    had to decide whether to change its admission standards and move to
    attract a higher quality of student, or to lower course standards to
    make it appear that students were more successful. During faculty and
    staff meetings, this was discussed and the chancellor stated that he
    did not want to change the “look” of WSSU. Raising admission
    standards would mean fewer students on campus and therefore less
    state money flowing in.

    The path the administration took was to make it seem as
    though students were doing better. Of course, there was no official
    statement to that effect, but I realized that was the case after
    faculty members began to share their concerns and frustration with
    me.

    Many stated that they were under pressure to decrease the
    material in the courses and increase the passing rates. They feared
    that they would be released if they didn’t. Other faculty members
    expressed concern that students were held to different standards
    depending on their race. Some said that they thought school officials
    were changing grades they had entered.

    I witnessed this blatant cheating on several occasions
    and reported it to my supervisor and the associate provost. They told
    me that it was none of my business. That didn’t surprise me, since
    I had made complaints previously about academic dishonesty and had
    been told that I was not my concern. Apparently, the administration
    was more interested in students getting good grades than whether they
    earned those grades honestly.

    Before I could learn more about the erosion of academic
    integrity at WSSU, I was fired. In 2011, after I had been promoted to
    director of academic technology, one of workers in the department,
    unhappy that a white person had been chosen, repeatedly attacked me
    verbally. After mediation with her failed to bring results, and
    because of other complaints about her performance, I recommended that
    she be released. I was stunned when, shortly thereafter, I was
    notified that I had been terminated.

    One faculty member who contacted me stated that not only did she
    have knowledge of the administration’s practice of raising student
    grades, but she could prove it because she’d been able to leave the
    university with her records intact. At first I was skeptical, knowing
    what I did about the university’s exit practice. The person to be
    fired would be called into a meeting while his computer, records, and
    belongings were confiscated by WSSU employees.

    Over the holiday break in 2012, however, I met with a faculty
    member who had the records to back her story.

    She stated that before leaving WSSU, a student came to her office
    and thanked her for “giving” her an “A” when she knew that
    she had barely earned a “B” in a nursing course. The professor
    was stunned to hear that and decided to go back into the student
    record keeping system to see if she had made a mistake.

    Looking at the records, she saw that four of her grades had been
    changed from B to A, and one from an F to an Incomplete. In each
    instance, the student who benefited was black. Also, white students
    who had higher averages than those whose grades were raised all
    remained at the lower, correct, grades. She documented all of the
    changes on her records.

    When this professor complained to the administration about the
    grade changes, officials took no action except to create such a
    hostile work environment for her that she quit.

      Blow the whistle. The time is finally ripe to expose the academic fraud at HBCUs and “jock schools” that depend on the Negro athlete to keep the sports teams viable and the alumni money coming.

    The irony, of course, is that negros create horrible schools by their very presence. The more of them, the worse the school.

  • archer

    I went to a high school in the 60’s that had what they called “schedules” from 1 to 6, the brighter kids were in the 1-4 schedules and kids like me were in 5 and 6. This allowed the smarter ones to learn at a faster rate than us dummies. I don’t see why this can’t be done today, you could match kids abilities by watching their grades and place them appropriately, because you would have a paper trail to verify performance you could bypass this type of lunacy when assigning a work load. It would soon become obvious who could do advanced work and who couldn’t. If there were so called minority children capable of studying in these higher “schedules” than so be it, they deserve to be there.

      At most Atlanta area high schools, students can enroll in one of three “graduation tracks”: CP (college prep, for average students), Honors (for advanced kids), and Gifted (the very top tier, but the student has to pass an entrance test in middle school). Most AP students are Honors (or Gifted), and the majority of black students are CP.

      There’s even a level below CP called “Collaborative Learning” for kids with IEPs. Basically, it’s two teachers in each class: one teaching and the other going around and making sure the kids are on-task. I can only imagine the racial breakdown of those students.

  • archer

    To qualify what I wrote, there would be pressure to “bump” some students up to higher “schedules” by parents claiming that being around smarter students would help their child. The way to avoid this would be with the paper trail of past performance, if you are failing in math or chemistry in a lower “schedule” there is no objective reason to expect better performance in a faster paced learning environment.

    Yes, the fewer number of white engineers are holding up the larger number of non-white engineers. I have seen this in software, factories and construction. The smarter white engineers recognize this up front and negotiate for a lot more money. I’ve heard them say it in very frank terms. They know the score and will play the game, but not on the cheap.

    • Anglokraut

      This has happened to my boyfriend, who is a network specialist. He designs and builds the computer systems for his company, but his idiot manager just hired two AA quota-fillers with all the right stuff: one is from Ethiopia, the other from Pakistan, both with engineering degrees from a prestigious red-brick university in Quebec…and they’re both dumb as rocks. The man who hired them tried to change on-call procedures just for them, by making them be always on call (so they get the money), but the competent workers must always be available to talk the AAs through any trouble they have, for no additional pay. My boyfriend laughed in his boss’s face and said that if he’s going to be on call to help the two who are actually on call, he’s going to be paid for his work.

        Good for him! Hit ’em where their ‘multicultural’ hurts–right in the pocketbook!

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        The dumb ones are pretty easy to help out the door. Just shore them up with favors till they get used to it, then pull out the rug. They make it too easy when they put worthless quota hires into a shark pit.

      One of my friends who teaches at a Charter school has a “Trayvon Martin” in his class. Every time we hang out I ask for updates on the young Trayvon Martin, my friend usually lets out a snort accompanied with a head shake and says something like, “That kid is really annoying…”

  • Douglas Quaid

    Shoot why not just give away degrees? The idea that anyone has to earn a degree is just as discriminatory and racist as meritoriously restricting access to advanced classes.

    The inherent injustice of equality

    … [T]oday’s “liberals” are really Leftists who have rejected the older liberal belief in a
    shared equality of citizens before the law and have embraced the socialist vision of “equality as a fact and equality as a result,” as Lyndon Johnson famously put it. Since people are unequal in their ability to accumulate property, as Hayek argued in the Mirage of Social Justice, equality of results can be pursued only by treating people unequally. This is the origin of the double standard.

    Moreover, since socialism has been discredited following the fall of Soviet Communism, the Left has for tactical reasons largely shifted its demand for equality of results away from the economic sphere to the cultural/moral sphere and the advancement of “oppressed” cultural and ethnic groups. The result is cultural socialism, which entails the same kind of bureaucratically imposed egalitarian “solution” as existed under the older socialism, and thus leads to a cultural double standard. This cultural double standard goes something like this: Since “we” (e.g., whites, Westerners, Christians, men, conservatives, Americans, the U.S. armed forces, Republicans, and heterosexuals) constitute an allegedly dominant group in society and are better off than the “Other” (i.e., nonwhites, non-Westerners, Moslems, women, liberals, immigrants, enemy combatants, Democrats, and homosexuals), our superior position violates the imperative of equality. In order for the desired state of equality to be attained, we, the unfairly dominant group, must be condemned, excluded, and dragged down, while the Other must be celebrated,
    included, and raised up. In short, in the name of equality, society is divided into two radically distinct groups, to which radically different rules apply. …

    DNA is a strange thing. The most brilliant student I ever taught in freshman composition at the university level was a black girl. She was as black, physically, as any person could be. I don’t need to dwell on physical characteristics here, and I won’t. She was a dual major–chemistry and biology. Probably the only student I ever taught who was demonstrably more intelligent than I was–not claiming any special intelligence for myself, or anything above normal, so please feel free to joke. At one point during the semester, she emailed me, saying that she was bored, and asked for some reading material to keep her entertained. I suggested Kafka, and she replied that she might like it, since there was “German” in the family tree.

    She was quite aware of the way she looked, and I know that she hated it. If ever a “white” mind were trapped in the body of a black person, it was in this case. I don’t know what my original point was, sorry.

    • Who Me?

      Your point, or rather what I got from your comment, is that there are exceptions to every rule. (Including this one….)

      • Breaker Morant

        The poor girl was so intelligent that the negro boys would have nothing to do with her–she was “acting white” as far as they were concerned–yet she was physically–I am not trying to be rude, I cared for this student very much–so “negro” looking physically, that a white boy would have nothing to do with her either.

        • Who Me?

          That’s really rather sad. In many cases intelligent White girls are also quite physically/facially attractive, (or they learn to enhance their good points to appear so.) Intelligent blacks on the other hand, not so much. Maybe there is no one to help them learn these things while they are young. Did you ever take a good look at a photo of Condoleezza Rice? That poor woman looks like she fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. Yet she is incredibly intelligent.

          • mikekingjr

            I felt sorry for her also. Always wondered if there were things she could do to not look like such an Alien. Maybe it mattered not to her. Never discerned any lack of self-confidence on her part.

          • BobbbyG

            Rice is not all that smart. They claimed she can “speak Russian”. I heard an interview, with a Russian diplomat or something, who tried speaking to her in Russian, as he had heard she could speak it. She couldn’t get past his first sentence; she had to ask him to speak English. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Phony.

    I went to high school with this idiot Arne Duncan. No, he like Obama did not go to public schools with lots of poor black children. We went to a Lib private school. Arne Duncan had a really weird , very old mother that followed him around everywhere, including boys basketball team practices.

    How can an administration wit so many goody two shoes do so much damage to My Country? I Cannot fathom how any underlings of these stooges could bring themselves to follow any orders, directives, ultimatums and so forth. I’m pretty well educated, remained brainwashed for some years, but I grew out of it. What HAPPENED to these people, not just psychologically, but physiologically? Will science find an answer someday? And a cure to go along with this answer? JEEEZ!
