Racism Still Exists in America

For example, the soft racism of low expectations is still raw racism.

“As part of Virginia’s waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities. … Here’s what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students’ test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.”

    The education board put black’s passing score threshold near that of retards.

  2. R.D. Walker says:

    What do you do for mulattoes? Split the difference? What if you are 25% Asian, 25% black and 50% white? What would be the passing score for that child? Can any non-Asian child in Virgina calculate that score?

  3. James says:

    Somehow this has to be about getting federal money for passing students. Virginia is reformulating to waive “No Child’s Left Behind” mandates.

  4. R.D. Walker says:

    What would we do for White-Hispanics like George Zimmerman? He is both white and Hispanic according to the media.

    Are homosexual children disadvantaged?

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    What they are doing is normalizing grades based on intelligence and defining intelligence by race.

    Isn’t that nice?

  8. rj says:

    Big question, are the idiots who passed that shit dems or repubs?

    Enquiring minds want to know

  9. James says:

    The problem is tasks in the real world require minimum absolute cognitive skill levels. Relabeling low scorers as “pass” does not give them ability. It does relieve schools of the burden of teaching students, and likely it does get federal monies.

    A very smart black student is now disadvanted because he is graded with dummies, and will be treated as such by outsiders.

    This is going to do nothing more than further entrench racist stereotypes of inferiority. The soft bigotry of low expectations is a foul scourge on American education. The left has spun their ‘support’ for minorities quite wonderfully, haven’t they?

    What I take away from this is akin to what James said:

    1) Asians – supah smaat
    2) Whites – tew dumm fer skoolin
    3) Hispanics – sensibles apenas
    4) Blacks – dey be retardit & shit

    Next up on the school lunch menu:

    1) Cats
    2) extra mayonnaise
    3) tacos & menudo
    4) fried chicken & watermelon

    Margaret Sanger lives. The more they are made ‘different’ from the rest, the less is said when they start disappearing. Ask any WWII Jew.
