Indiana School District Bused Only Black Third-Graders to Tour Local Colleges

Kaitlyn Schallhorn, Campus Reform, April 21, 2015

An Indiana public school district segregated elementary field trips last week when administrators included only African-Americans on the college introduction tour.

According to ABC 57, South Bend Community Schools Corporation has planned a series of field trips to three local colleges for black third-graders in seven school districts. The excursions began last week with a trip to Ivy Tech Community College.

Dr. G. David Moss, the director for the African-American student-parent services with the South Bend Community Schools Corporation, told ABC 57 that he wanted the third-grade students to begin to think of themselves attending college.

“I was hired to look at the issues facing African-American kids in the South Bend Community Schools Corporation and my job specifically says that I need to develop programs and develop strategies to help these kids and their families become more successful academically,” Moss said.

In 2012, 34.5 percent of students in the South Bend Community Schools Corporation were African-American. White students made up 37.1 percent of the school population that same year.

The students–and their parents if they wish to attend–will meet with African-American college students who, according to Moss, will “[model] the idea that as a black person, college is a great place.”

UPDATE: According to the South Bend Tribune, the field trips have been postponed for the time being. A district spokesperson told the newspaper that the field trips had not been vetted by the superintendent, as is normally policy. {snip}

  • Who is anyone kidding? These kids aren’t going to graduate high school.

    • IstvanIN

      They will receive diplomas, however.

      • GED diplomas while locked up.

          Remember: there’s a massive push to bar employers from asking about prospective employees’ criminal records.

          • Charles Martel

            They even went after Bass Pro shops which sells guns & knives

          • listenupbub

            If Bass Pro Shops starts having to hire tons of black workers, I imagine the franchise would fail immediately.

            I hope the management doesn’t take the p.c. bait !

            Maybe they can hold the targets at the indoor shooting range?

          • LS Wight

            Boycott them! You better wake up and attempt to give some type of minor resistance! Just sit there and allow white genocide because the pain of cognitive dissonance is too much for most of our indoctrinated white population and they got indoctrination from tolerating this type of double standard nonsense!

          • Charles Martel

            Felons cant work in places that sell knives & guns which was their defense when Holder went after their criminal background check policy

          • listenupbub

            That guy would go after Bass Pro Shops, wouldn’t he? He cannot stand to see whites enjoy any sort of organic culture, even if the particular white [redneck] culture they create is anti-education and anti-intellectual, and does nothing but make it harder for those whites to “get ahead” of blacks in the competition for power, wealth, and genetic survival.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            A criminal background check has been a long-standing qualification for getting hired for decades. Let me guess.. this push to bar employers from asking about criminal records has a “disparate impact” on blacks from getting hired, which would be my guess.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You must be one of dees brane-docters…!

            Yes, I am a brane-docter, but I’m the one who has dain bramage….

          • This will merely accelerate the trend of employers to shred resumes and applications with names like N’DeShawntavious and LaCreature on them, without reading past the first few lines.

          • Kenner

            LaCreature!! HaHa! LaCritta–

          • InAFreeCountry

            The Commonwealth of Virginia is taking the felony checkbox off of applications for state jobs. Stupid, as they will just get turned down later in the hiring process.

        • APaige

          So maybe a visit to the local jail or prison would be more appropriate?
          A tour and family reunion.

            3 hots & a cot and Whitey is safer that way !

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Along with high-paying, make-work government jobs.

        • withcaution

          To be accurate, this applies to the private sector too. I applied for a skills trades job at GM over 30 years ago and after getting 100% on their aptitude test, I was called back for the interview the first thing they said was “we give 35 bonus points to any non-white male on this test so the odds of you getting hired are slim to none”.

            My next vehicle will definitely be Japanese. The Big Three sure as hell have no loyalty to me, why the hell should I have any to them?

          • You probably won’t find a more genuinely American car than a Japanese car assembled in an American plant.

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            That’s true. That Japs also aren’t stupid and they locate their plants here in the whitest areas of the country, for obvious reasons.

          • One exception, though: The Nissan Titan assembly line is in Madison, Mississippi, with plenty of Bellcurvians around and working at the plant.

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            Unsurprising, given that the Titan is the Rodney Dangerfield of pickups.

      A black fourth grader asked his mother why his genitals were larger than the White boys that he contrasted with at the school urinals, ” is it because I’m black ” ? His mother said no, it’s because you’re 19 years old !

      Sure they will. Did you see who won the national debate team? Google that. Any idiot can “Graduate” our indoctrination centers by being non white and playing victim. Cultural Marxism requires victim mentality to bring about the same Bolshevist nonsense that caused all the blood shed in the other Communist nations like Russia and China. Leon Trotsky invented the word “Racism. ”
      Look up black on white crime. Consider the fact that blacks commit more than 65 % of all murders in the USA and that number is calculated by counting Hispanics as white! Look up the United Nations definition of genocide and wake up to the socio economic leveling of the globe which requires the destruction of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA. The thing you’re not supposed to see is that this impossible double standard applied to whites is not unique to the USA.

      I have snarkily written not only here, and on my own blog, but also in other places in recent times that every 18-year old will get a high school diploma just as a civil right of turning eighteen. This means the high school graduation rate will be 100%.

      It should also follow that all the social ills that bedevil individuals or groups that we are told derive from individuals not having high school diplomas or the “gap” in high school graduation rates between groups should disappear. Right?

    Then again, “integration” really was never much about integration, and “equality” was never much about equality. It was always about who gets to hold the whip and against whom is it cracked.

    Incidentally, the “ABC 57″ TV station out of South Bend is the same one whose reporter ambushed Memories Pizza in Walkerton.

      Every so often, I write a letter to the local rag extolling segregation. I will use this the next time I write such a letter. The rag started printing these type letters when they saw the writing on the wall for them. Too late though. They don’t have long before going under. I keep my eye on the stacks of newspapers in the stores. They’re constantly dwindling.

Unless we have the option of casting a vote which will be counted for such a candidate, we literally have no voice. Our enemies spew poppycock about White privilege because they know that none exists.

  • dd121

    These liberals can bus them wherever they wish and ignore whites, but we all know who’s really going to college.

    • bv

      They’ll find a way to decrease white enrollment so that blacks will have a place in the schools.

    • TruthBeTold

      They likely gave them ‘the talk’; ‘If you stamp your feet, whine long and hard, and scream RACISM you might get in’.

      • Blackfish

        It’s not even that difficult. Just check the box and you’re in!

    • Charles Martel

      Blacks not smart enough to join the military can still go to college on scholarships.

  • phorning

    How could this possibly help any elementary school students? Our school district only lined up visits like this for juniors and seniors in high school. What benefit could there be to having a third grader visit a college? If introducing nine year olds to black college students is magically going to change lives, have the college students visit the elementary school. Everyone involved in this program should be fired.

    • Charles Martel

      They figured the kids wouldn’t be getting any smarter. Maybe they had 18yos in 3rd grade

    • Neuday

      They want them to see a college before the drop-outs and pregnancies begin.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      This Liberal stupidity on race is always fueled by tabula rasa theories on race. Liberals want to pretend that genetics do not exist. Most Negroes have a lower IQ than most Whites, and this is an inborn racial difference. Blacks have been showered with preferential treatment for the past 50 years, yet their behavior is worse than it was in the days of segregation. This is because back then, they knew their rightful place. They accepted that they are inferior to us intellectually instead of constantly resenting us for this.

    • bilderbuster

      The same way that changing the name of a street in the ghetto to MLK Blvd. was going to give Blacks self esteem and magically transform the ghetto into a thriving Black boom town turning the Yoof into The Cosby Kids back in the 80’s.

  • MekongDelta69

    Who else but blacks have needed tens of thousands of ‘special programs’ and trillions of dollars through the decades to unsuccessfully try to teach them how to act like semi-civilized human beings without any success whatsoever? NOBODY.

    Because you need certain prereqs – like an IQ, a non-dysfunctional family, an almost crime-free neighborhood, and on and on.
    I’d like a mansion with a chauffeured Rolls and an Olympic size swimming pool with supermodels lounging all around the house.

    So, what are the odds that I’ll get what I want before SJWs get what they want?!

    • TruthBeTold

      Exactly right.

      How much have we spent on ‘special programs’ and ‘initiatives’ to prove that blacks and whites are equal?

      If we were equal they wouldn’t need special programs and initiatives.

      • Charles Martel

        The SBPDL guy said it was over $27 trillion spent failing to make them equal

      Yes, it’s pathetic. They can barely even defecate without white people wiping their behinds for them afterward. Yet they also have toxically high levels of self esteem. Only a very stupid person could live with such cognitive dissonance.

      • Wiping? Some, like Toni Morrison seem to be demanding that theirs be licked clean, rather than merely wiped.

        • Lexonaut

          Others do it in swimming pools. No problem, the water is usually chlorinated.

      • InAFreeCountry

        How do they know when they’re done wiping?

    • While were on the subject, I’d like a large lot with a new house, an attached greenhouse, mature trees, a barn, and an old, water-filled quarry I could stock with fish.

      Maybe next time.

    Perhaps a side tour of the local correctional facility would have been apropos, since the statistics tell us that more of these youngsters are likely to spend time there than at uni.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Not a side tour but how about a week tour to get them to reserve there cell, and learn how to make shanks and file a appeal?

    • bv

      Ain’t that the truth.

  • Race realistic field trips for Negro sprogs are an excellent idea. Since they’re too hyped up to sit in chairs and their minds are not capable of concentrating anyway, getting out into the fresh air is fantastic. In the spirit of helpfulness, I offer the following ideas:

    1. Visit to an undertaker to witness the embalming of a dead negro killed by another negro.
    2. Trip to the monkey house at the zoo for poo flinging lessons.
    3. Ticket to a visit to the local neighborhood whore house. Side trip to doctor’s office to observe treatment of STDs.
    4. Afternoon in a liquor store.
    5. Visit to a pawn shop.
    6. House tour. Not better homes and gardens, but crack houses.

    Give me a little more time and I could help some more. No thanks necessary, Mr. Black School Man.

      “6. House Tours-Crack Houses” I was doing an “enforcement sweep” of my vacant commercial building “Crack Shack” on our city`s East Side the other day. I saw a worn out `83 Lincoln Town Car rolling toward me. It had been re-painted in Royal Purple and Canary Yellow with gold Spinner rims. As it went past I eyed the gangster posse sipping OE 800 and smoking blunts inside. I continued looking , alert for any trouble. They had striped off the entire rear window and trunk lid in the manner of an explosives truck, with letters 18 inches high… “CAUTION!! KEEP WELL BACK- NI&&A CLOWNERS ON BOARD”…

  • Ronald

    At first glance, this seems like a good idea. As long as the African children are away, the little White minority children will be able to bear down and study their lessons without suffering the chaos, disorder, and violence that exists while the African children are in attendance. The only question is why was it necessary for this enlightened scheme to be implemented with an African school Administrator in charge? Could this be yet another trick to keep the White children down?

  • LexiconD1

    At my son’s school they have a program called AVID. It’s out of the middle and high school age group. It’s for students who would be the first in their families to attend college. They set you up to graduate high school with all the prereqs for attending college.

    I looked at the grade sheet for the student in the AVID class, it was hanging on the wall, and more than half of them were failing AVID. I can’t imagine what they do for their other classes, but I bet it’s not much better.

    These idiots will be lucky to even come close to a high school diploma, much less stepping foot on a college campus as a student.

    All of this is a waste of time, money and resources.

    “Indiana School District Bused Only Black Third-Graders to Tour Local Colleges,”

    They have no conception of what higher learning is all about. It would have accomplished about the same if they had read them the Greek National Anthem in Greek, hoping to encourage them to take up a foreign language. (Besides Ebonics)

    I’ll lay ten to one odds the sum total of what they got out of the trip was bouncing around the bus like out-of-control imbeciles, noticing only a big building here and there.

    This Indiana School District personnel responsible for such nonsense appear to be on the same level as black third graders.

    • Blackfish

      Maybe they drove the bus down Sorority Row so they could all get a good look at the white wimmens

  • Michael Robert Ryan

    Pathetic. They can barely even defecate without white people wiping their behinds for them afterward.

  • These black kids need inspiration to attend college, so of course letting them visit colleges will work. Okay, I know, my fellow readers are laughing at this and you guys think I don’t know what I am talking about. Okay, just remember, when these little black boys get to college, what will they see? “WHITE BITCHES”! Hey, “They show iz hot!” So, OF COURSE these visits will stimulate their interest in college. Just as long as you don’t remind them that people are in school to learn and to better themselves. That would be a definite turn off.

    • listenupbub

      Finally, someone else who mentions one of the most important features of the messy relation between blacks and whites! Good work, John R!

      • Hey, I grew up and live just outside Philadelphia, in an area with a significant “African American” population. It is something like Ferguson, Missouri, but with a great police department and a no-nonsense police chief. I know blacks. And, with all due respect to Mr. Jared Taylor and the work he has done for us, I think I sometimes understand black people even better than he does. Peace!

    Apparently the fiction must be maintained that blacks want an education. That blacks don’t want to make the effort/don’t have the smarts is patently obvious. What you can break your head trying to figure out is why establishment whites INSIST on a fiction.

    • Vito Powers

      I completely agree. Negroes for the most part are lazy and just not that bright. Of course, not ALL of them, but the vast majority of young Negroes are. We should seriously consider the development of a prison colony in say, Liberia. Even if a Negro escaped, who would care?

  • inotherwords

    They should have invited all the kids, it’s wasteful to just leave the front of the bus empty.

    I hope they had enough short busses to carry all of them.

    I wish they took them on a tour of a certain kind of college, and let them know that’s their future if they misbehave.

    (Not that they’d care.)

    • Vito Powers

      Why don’t they give the young Negroes tours of the state prisons? It may give them a chance to visit their baby daddies too.

      It would be much more beneficial for young Negroes to see first-hand the outcomes and consequences of bad behavior.

  • MBlanc46

    Segregation now, segregation forever.

  • OhWow

    I went to a pretty selective private college with a low admission percentage. I remember the college partnering with some inner-city high school to bus all black students in and let them spend a day there to “inspire” and “motivate” them.

    My college was mostly white students and we would all stare at each other with that disgusted face. It was like saying “I know what you are thinking and I agree” without saying it. The black high school kids would come in wearing fitted caps and du rags with their pants halfway down. They would be extremely loud and were allowed to eat from our cafeteria. Just incredibly disrespectful. The only black students who made it into my college were athletes or were kicked out due to being on academic probation and not being able to handle college work.

    It’s so strange to me that we treat them just like us when it’s so obvious how different they really are. That’s not being mean, that’s being honest. Whites and blacks could not be anymore different in culture, beliefs, values, IQ, violence, aggression, education, family, etc. Just seeing those ghetto black kids walking through the halls of our prestigious little school made me sick. It was like a joke. They would be lucky to graduate high school let alone college.

    • Tim

      “I know what you are thinking and I agree.” I read a great post a while back about a middle aged man waiting in line with 350 illegals to get a drivers license. A young White girl sidled up to him and they became best friends for the hour and a half it took the line to move. The man commented about it something to the effect that they were both strangers working together in a lifeboat surrounded by sharks…

    And what makes them think that these Black Third graders will make it to college let alone pass 5th grade??

  • Vito Powers

    Why are so many jackass white people so quick to pout and complain about Negroes choosing to segregate themselves? I say we need to let Negroes completely segregate into the quaint tradition of “separate, but equal”. I suppose I’m just too old-fashioned.

    • Lexonaut

      “I suppose I’m just too old-fashioned.”

      Not at all. DOJ agrees with you and so do I. DOJ uses different words, but if all their post-Ferguson recommendations were to be implemented, and if all their lobbying efforts to get black people to vote in municipal elections were to succeed, the result would be separation of the races.

      However, it wouldn’t be segregation — nobody is being forced to move in or out — yet it wouldn’t be equal either. The enclaves would be whatever black people chose to make of them in their new white-free zones. If they make more Detroits that’s fine with me — when was the last time you heard of a riot there? Or a report of police brutality?

      We need more Detroits, not fewer of them. Let’s give the people what they want.

    Qualified by affirmative actions although you are not capable, of course it is great.

  • Who Me?

    The reason they only let “children of African decent” tour the colleges is because by the time those third graders are ready for college, they will not be admitting any white students to college anyway, so it’s a moot point!

    Anti racist is code for anti White! Stop the genocide in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, South Africa before we become the next Haiti, the next Zimbabwe. This hypocrisy must end and Repatriation is the only solution! Deny Babylon! Deny Cultural Marxism! Deny the new world order!
