Black boys see bleak future at school
San Francisco Chronicle, by Jill Tucker

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/4/2012 2:51:37 PM

By kindergarten, 1 out of 4 African American boys in California is convinced he will fail in school, a self-fulfilling prophecy driven in part by poverty and trauma, according to the results of a legislative inquiry. The Assembly select committee investigation on the status of boys and men of color also found that the boys are increasingly putting a strain on the state´s economic health. The findings were drawn from several community hearings, expert testimony and the input of hundreds of other stakeholders over 18 months. The final report, scheduled for public release this week, identified education, health and employment

Comments:
"Boys of color" are failing in school and in the world of work, incurring enormous social costs. Conspicuously absent among the list of factors are single-parent households, the insanity of paying unemployed young women to have babies out of wedlock, a culture that places no value on education, or a welfare system that provides a free ride for anyone who wants one.

Official solution will be to spend more money "eradicating the root causes of the cycle of poverty"; nothing new under the sun.

Yes, the only reason people are ´poor´ is simply because they don´t have enough money!

By Kindergarten? The liberal culture of victimhood and hoplessness how now permeated to 5 year olds. We need a gov´t program to fix this...

In addition to the poster´s comment are the NEA dumbing down education, blacks failure to support school vouchers, and the Gov´t imposing Gov´t dependency on blacks.

I went to school with a young man from California. He was interested in science and had gone with his high school science teacher to disassemble an old missile silo to build a physics lab. MIT wasn´t challenging enough so he applied to Cal Tech for a physics doctorate after 1 year. Only difference I can see is the individual desire to learn. Maybe if CA focused on potential and opportunity, and less categorization, they achieve better results.

Probably even ahead of having an involved parent (or heaven forbid - parentS) on the list of things they can do to improve their future would be to go out of their way and make friends with the "smart" Asian and white kids in school and in their neighborhoods. Not some superficial leeching arrangement, but true friendship. Why doesn´t some enterprising PhD candidate look at this factor? Second would be to be, as Harry Reid and Joey Biden said, "clean and articulate".

As well they should see a bleak future -- all around, not just at school. The destruction of black independence by the Democrats has been in place for a long time. It´s pretty much an entrenched situation with people not only feeling no shame for being on public assistance, but being proud of it.

They fail from birth because they are taught not to emulate Whitey. We have spent tens of trillions on blacks and other minorities since LBJ´s "Great Society" which has done nothing to improve the mind set of black-Americans, of course there are successes but not enough to change their society. Booze, bullets, drugs, girls and government handouts are their life style. We have 3rd and 4th generation blacks on the dole, which apparently keeps them happy.

Let´s see - compare black children who grow up in stable 2-parent homes and attend church with those from unstable, single-parent homes whose religion is liberalism. On average you´ll see a huge difference, but over- educated PhD´s can´t figure it out.

Mae West: "I´ve been rich and I´ve been poor and rich is better."

Maybe it´s past time for the first Black President to oversee a true personal growth and family resurgence in the Black Community and stop playing the race card and trashing everyone he hates!

Obama is totally squandering his advantage and opportunity to actually help a large group of people by totally focusing on his false sense of getting ´revenge´ on those he perceives are the problem.

With all due respect Mr. Obama, these opportunities are squandered by Black Leadership because they need sheep to vote for them. Wake up, your opportunity is staring you in the face and you choose to ignore it!

Black children can now grow into black adults without ever knowing anyone who has ever held a job. Think about that, not just dependance of a few, not a single family member or even casual aquantance who has EVER held a job.

And you wonder why the black community is devolving right before our eyes? Add to that the recism inherant in maintaining their victim status and the ever present flash and bling of the corner drug dealing crowd and yyou wonder why an $8 an hour starting position at Walmart looks like slavery to them? When an illiterate sociopathic thug can rape every girl at whim, when he flashes hundred dollar bills like they are toilet tissue, when they pay a 10 year old $100 a day to run drugs from the stash house to the corners. You wonder why inner city kids are increasingly violent, illiterate and volatile.

PhD my patuckis, you are not educated, you are blind.

The combination of lower than average mean IQ, family and social pathology, negative expectations and predatory politics does seem to doom many of these children to lives that are nasty, brutish and often short, almost before they get started. Political correctness and racial demagoguery make it next to impossible to discuss and address these problems effectively. Pathetic "programs" like Black Manhood and the ridiculous practice of parsing history for examples of individuals with black skin color who have (nevertheless!) amounted to something are close to criminal in their stupidity and ineffectiveness.

Stern measures are called for. The equivalent of "reform schools" should be established and all students and their families of all colors
informed at the start of each school year that skipping school, disrespecting teachers, causing problems on campus, foul language, fights and refusal to learn would result in immediate mandatory transfer to such highly regimented and supervised institutions where the students would live as well as study. Parents who refused to cooperate would be arrested and sent to prison for child neglect or the children would be removed from their custody and made wards of the state. Measures such as these, which of course will never even be proposed, much less enacted, would solve the problems to the degree that they are soluble. They will never, ever happen. Instead we will be subjected to more guilt trips, complaints, demands for more taxpayer revenue for preposterous and counter-productive programs, more Leftist materialist social engineering schemes, etc etc etc.

Children can and should be raised correctly. If the parents are unable or unwilling to do the job, the state has a responsibility to the children as well as to itself to intervene to see that proper values are taught and adequate education is acquired.

"How about putting pressure on men, especially black men, to be good fathers to their sons."

These women aren´t interested in the sperm donating men any more than they are about the children once they get beyond early childhood and get shuffled off to big mama. These children serve several purposes, from social trophies and "baby doll" playthings, to the sources of increased income, especially once they hit the SSI "crazy money" jackpot. None of the above requires an education.

But the blame will never be placed where it rightly belongs.......modern liberalism. Liberalism broke down the black family thru the entitlement culture that encouraged single mother families. Liberalism gave blacks excuses for doing substandard work. Liberalism gave blacks their affirmative action. Liberal Democrats sacrificed blacks for political gain. It´s as simple as that. But the black voters just keep coming back for more. So let them finally sleep in the bed they made for themselves. I don´t have time for them anymore. To hell with them.

Children of married black couples have the same poverty rate of children of married white couples - less than 5%. But we can´t talk about that.

And black girls who have their fathers around are so much less likely to have a child out of wedlock. But we can´t talk about that.

And black boys who have their fathers around are so much less likely to end up in prison. But we can´t talk about that.

At the age of 3, we have provided Head Start, at age 5 public school and still they fail.
They grow up like wolf cubs, no nurturing, no books in the home, no parent reading to them, no one teaching them the alphabet.
All that´s left is to remove them and put them in group homes where they would have a better chance at a life. If the mother is under 18, and there is no father in the home, remove the child. It would probably cost less in the long run.

Clearly we all have a direct interest in educating our children so that they can become productive members of society. But where is the responsibility of the families in which these children live?

It makes no sense whatsoever that a little boy in kindergarten would believe he is going to be a failure? How could he even have a concept of what a failure or success is? This is nuts.

It appears that Head Start is a complete waste of time and only a babysitting program. One can assume that most of these children of color begin Head Start at age three. So they come the first day, not having been read to or taught shapes or colors.

Perhaps we need to put these children in classes with four or five to a class, and require x number of hours of their parents time in helping to teach them.

If this is the case in the great and glorious California, what is it like in the despised red southern states?

#2- A liberal family therapist/ social worker who was once my coworker announced at a staff meeting one day that "racism hurts babies in the womb." (This is technically true since racist planned parenthood targets black babies for abortion... but that´s not what she meant, of course.) She actually said black babies are born victims. I am not kidding. She cited some study that said black women who are pregnant and feel they are being treated unfairly because they are black, have increased stress hormones which in turn increase some sort of stress hormone in the unborn baby. You can´t make this stuff up...

My money´s on culture, two key elements of which are work, and family structure. At the time of the Harlem Renaissance ----an historic upsurge in African-American creativity in the arts, music, drama, literature, scholarship and civic leadership --- 90% of the black children in Harlem lived in intact-- married-- mother´n´father households.

And now?

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
