Let’s Talk About the
‘Systemic Racism’ of
Public Schooling

Original Article

Something called systemic racism has been ubiquitous in the news recently. Now, I don’t really know what “systemic racism” means, but if you want to talk about the biggest driver of harm to people with dark skin, one need look no further than the K-12 public school system. [Snip] It is not uncommon to find schools where more than 90 percent of all students are not proficient in any subject. There can only be two explanations. Either these kids are simply too dumb to learn much of anything or they are getting screwed by the education system

Barack Obola, July 26, 2012, issued an executive order titled On The Education Of African American Students. the executive order, among other things, established a quota system by race, by each school. It was the one worst decision made by Barack, among a passel of bad decisions during his presidency.

You want to talk about 'systemic racism'? Forty percent of abortions are committed on African-American women. They make up appx. 4% of the population. Planned Parenthood needs to be called out on their 'systemic racism'.

The cultural dysfunction within the black community is almost overwhelming, almost. It can be fixed but it will take decades. Education is seen as acting white. Getting a low level job is beneath them even though they have no job skills, cannot do basic math and cannot write an intelligible sentence or speak coherently. On the Democrat plantation, there is no black leader who will acknowledge these issues because being a victim is all that has been preached for decades. Black churches offered some hope once upon a time by saying what needed to be said even if it wasn't popular. No longer. The cultural wasteland is going to only get larger with all of this BLM. If Black Lives Mattered, All black lives would matter. They don't. Selective black lives matter but the culture supported by the media emphasize that only selective black lives matter without overtly saying so.

So "critical race theory" advocates always want to blame me personally for everything wrong with the world, and demand that I indulge in a major introspection to atone for my perceived sins. Maybe these folks should indulge in the same personal introspection about why they have an apoplectic aversion to discussing the average IQ's of Blacks, whites and Asians? And maybe atone for their sin of refusing admit the obvious?

A good education starts in the home. If your parent(s) value education, nurture their children to read, do their homework and participate in their learning, it does not matter the color of your skin. If parents do not give a hoot about their children's education, it takes a motivated child to escape the cycle, no matter the color of your skin.

I teach JROTC in a very diverse, high poverty inner city school (which is where these programs need to be, by the way). My observation is that most of "society's" problems bubble to the surface in a school. We see it all: no father in the home, incarcerated parents, doper parents, few good jobs because industry pulled out years ago and the economy hasn't recovered, too few Alpa male role model teachers (be offended, feminists, I don't care), and I could go on. Schools can't fix all of society's ills, but are expected to and blamed when they can't. The author should tell us his plan to fix these bad schools, given what we have to work with. Lest you think I'm defeatist, our cadets outperform the rest of the school in every way: lower discipline rates, higher test scores, higher graduation rates, more kids on the honor roll and members of the National Honor Society, and more.

Let's also add that most of these black kids have only one of what some people might call a parent. The mother of many have of these kids have children from different men, and the kids are being raised by a grandparent who also had many kids by many different men. Try teaching these kids anything other than how to survive. No other subject in school has any relevance to their everyday life. The 60's social programs of the demosluts are just as responsible for that situation. Then we hand these kids off to an educational system run by these same socialist animals that has ruined generation after generation of inner city children. All that's happened is that the same mindset that started this back in the 60's, has now worked it's way into every school system in the country.

I recall demo'ing a product to an inner city highschool classroom years ago. Beforehand, the teacher said, "anyone who does not want to see this can go to the other side of the room." Every single black kid went to the other side of the room. And none of the others did. If the teacher had said, "black kids don't get to see this" it would have had the same exact outcome. Somehow I think the teacher knew what would happen before he said it.

The greatest amount of learning occurs in the first five years. If you have parents that don't talk to their children, read to them and provide learning experiences, your children will have a difficult time catching up with children who are provided with the above experiences.

The issue with public education is not racism but elitism. Most intact white and Asian families recognize that there is a premium value to advanced higher education because this is currently what the best paying job opportunities require. The tax structure and scholarship funding infrastructure is geared to this educational track. For long standing historical and cultural reasons this track was not seen as a preferred path for minority kids and the number of these kids that had the opportunity, ability. and drive to compete were limited. Rather than being supported this intellectually competitive group was denigrated as "nerds" or "acting white". Without family and community support and because of the wealth disparity that this behavior produced over time, the school tax base declined, good teachers left, and crime and neglect resulted in the present low expectations and performance gap. The first part of the solution is to give the "nerds" the ability to escape their local schools and participate in the higher education track on a level playing field. The second part of the solution is to return manufacturing and other technical skill jobs to the US rather than exporting them to foreign states like China that exploit slave labor to produce cheap goods for export. As Mike Rowe has pointed out, there are a lot of highly skilled jobs that don't require a college degree and pay really well. We need to make sure that those students not interested in higher education have a fair chance to make a decent living without having to turn to crime. We also need to stop importing labor from outside the US and enforce laws to hire citizens for construction trades and other skilled non-degree type jobs. It is elitist to expect everyone to get an advanced degree to have a decent life. We need to maximize the opportunities for all people to do well as long as they are willing to learn a skill and put in the work.

If we really, really want to fix taxpayer financed education, then there is only one really way: end the requirement for degrees and certifications from colleges of education. They are the nests of "social justice" warriors out to right every perceived wrong. It is where profiency in the ability to teach students reading, writing, and takes a backseat to lessons on emotional well-being and whatever is the cause de jure of the over-educated useful idiots that run these schools. It trickles up through the worthless and destructive Common Core math and language arts programs. We have children in middle school who do not know their basic multiplication table through 9, nor can they do simple division, addition, or subtraction without fingers or calculators. We are mandated to prepare students for college, rather than prepare them with the fundamental skills to function in our modern society. Teaching number theory to elementary school children rather than concrete skills is killing our kids intellectual development. And if I have to listen to one more politician come up with one more "comprehensive" plan to fix education, I may just have uncontrollable vomit and diarrhea. They only seek to please their employers - the education and textbook companies - that spread money around like a homeless lottery winner. I thank God that I can retire in 50 months. I have watched as kids have literally been dumbed down worse than ever. I fear for my son and his peers as they have to deal with the aftermath of a system more concerned about skin color, genitals, sexuality, and hurt feelings. I swear, it's like we are being prepared with a long term strategy to be unable to defend ourselves. And, in fact, I think we have been ever since the Progressives of the early 20th century and that little revolution that took place in Russia in 1917. Communism is alive and flowering in the United States of America - by design.

#7 Dr Ben Carson is a classic example of a single parent making education important. Even though she was unable to read, she determined that her boys would, and they would excel because she pushed them! Gifted Hands is an excellent movie and book of their journey. It can be done regardless of circumstances. It just has to be important.

big OOPS! I left out the important part of Barack's executive order. It dealt with the dispensing of discipline, based on race, creed, religion. But it addressed discipline administered to black students. Let's say Malcolm X elementary school had 200 students enrolled, and 50 per cent of them were black, 50 per cent white. the total discipljnary actions dispensed against all of the students had to be in proportion to the 50/50 demographics. and once the school hit the 50 % wall with black students for the school year, no further discipline could be dispensed against blacks. even an assault against a teacher with a deadly weapon could not result in discipline. Barack could not have done anything more destructive to black student achievement. baltimore School District, this past year, did not have one student achieve passing grades on math or reading tests Thanks, Barack..

"Either these kids are simply too dumb to learn much of anything or they are getting screwed by the education system " Or a culture discouraging students from actually engaging in class or achieving good grades is entrenched among the student body. I went to a LOT of schools as a military brat, and there was a real disparity among the cultures of learning between them. In one, you risked being beaten up after class if the teacher called on you and you tried to give a good (non-snarky) answer.

More than 400,000 Michigan residents have signed a petition that would trigger a statewide referendum on lockdown-loving Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian emergency powers provided that state authorities determine that at least 340,000 of the signatures turn out to be legitimate. During the pandemic, Gov. Whitmer has relied on a 1945 law to enforce open-ended COVID-related restrictions, and the referendum outcome could mean the repeal of that mandate.

Joe has failed every big test when given executive authority. Joe Biden has been trying to embrace Barack Obama's record because he doesn't have one of his own, but the former vice president didn't fair well in what arguably was the 43rd president's biggest accomplishment, argues Dan McLaughlin in an analysis for National Review. The best moment of Obama's presidency was the May 2011 raid into Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden. But it happened only because Obama ignored Biden when the vice president said, "Mr. President, my suggestion is, don't go."
