Obama asks schools to ignore bad behavior by black students

Postby Nevanmaa » Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:02 am

Obama is at it again!

On July 26th Obama signed an executive order titled the "African American Education Initiative." The order essentially gives a green light for black students to misbehave in public schools. In two places, Obama's executive order calls on schools to reduce the number disciplinary actions taken against blacks students. The order specifically calls on schools too "not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools."

To comply, public schools would have to engage in a racial quota system of discipline. The executive order will create a new Federal bureaucracy to pressure school systems to comply with the president's demands. The executive order makes no mention of any effort to get black students to improve behavior.

There is a reason why blacks are more likely to be disciplined in school. Black students are more likely to misbehave. The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that there is a huge crime rate disparity between blacks and other racial groups.

Based on those disparities, one should expect that there would be a disparity in frequency of bad behavior between black and white school students in the public schools.

The DOJ reports that the homicide rate in the black community is nine times greater than in the white community. Between 1976 and 2005, the DOJ reported that blacks averaged 13 percent of the population, but accounted for 59 percent of felony homicide charges and 53 percent of non-felony manslaughter charges. It also might come as no surprise that 93-95 percent of black homicides victims are killed by a black perpetrator. Most of the rest are killed by a Latino perpetrator.

In reality, blacks are already less likely to be suspended for bad behavior than whites. Often, white teachers and administrators are afraid to discipline black students for fear of being called “racists.” Even some black school officials are afraid of being labeled a “sell-out” by black students.

So, what do you think? Is this yet another attempt by Obama and liberals to create a magical society where everyone are equal and cotton candy rains down from the sky, or a desperate attempt to cover up reality and facts?

I see it as nothing more than desperate attempt by the liberals attempting to create a some kind of alternative reality where everyone are equal and there are no conflicts whatsoever. It doesn't matter if such fantasy cannot be achieved, as long as it's out of sight, it's out of mind. The funniest, and also the saddest thing is that the bill doesn't even attempt to take measures to influence the behavior of African-American students in a better direction: it just covers up their misdeeds.

This is just sad. Obama is actually being the biggest racist of all, thinking that African-Americans need some kind of special protection like this.

So just because a student is black means they can get away with anything? Now I'm glad I like in the UK.

You know, ace equality and racism works both ways. So all races are equal. Not white people falling over themselves to try and not look racist.
If this is true, then Obama is a twat.

There is no racial issue in the American public schools system, it is only a problem in Obama's head. Passing such a rule would be expensive to enforce with all of the bureaucracies. Obama should be focusing on more important things like, say, deficit reduction. He is trying to create problems to draw the American people's attention else where.
