Bummer: Very Liberal Education System Is A Hotbed Of Racism Per Salon

When we’re talking about public education, Democrats are in the majority. 67% voted for Obama in 2008, compared to just 30% for John McCain. 93% of National Educational Association donations went to Democrats. This is an organization that votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and donates to Democrats. Think on that

“Modern racism lurks in the shadows of equality”: Why colorblind school policies have failed black people
Instead of confronting racial and cultural divides, American education only serves to further them

The United States is experiencing a paroxysm of racism, from police shootings and the brutality of white supremacy in Charleston to a string of arsons in black churches across the South. Of course, it’s nothing new for a nation with a long history of extreme racist violence—the most recent lynching-related death occurred in 1981, hardly a lifetime ago, when Michael Donald was hanged by two members of the Ku Klux Klan.

The United States, however, continues to avoid its history on race, refusing to confront its past in a “post-racial,” “colorblind” society, and that policy of systemic ignorance is particularly strong in the education system. We shouldn’t rely on the social justice conversation on Twitter to drive the conversation. It’s time for our schools to recognize that #BlackLivesMatter.

Though addressing the huge problems with American race relations is a complex issue, reforms to American education policy need to be a crucial component of successful anti-racism work. Classrooms in primary, secondary, and post-secondary education are all failing students through omission or outright lies. Students graduate with no knowledge of Japanese internment camps or learn that Southern slaveowners were “benevolent masters,” and thus, graduates are deprived of crucial information when they enter the harsh light of the outside world.

A nation that refuses to look its past in the eye is doomed not just to repeat the horrors of prior generations, but to relive them in new, ever-changing ways. White supremacy has been a fact of life in the United States since North America was colonized by Europeans, but today’s version looks very different. Modern racism lurks in the shadows of equality, cloaked in the rhetoric of a nation where people of all colors can live together peacefully. We think racism is easy to point out and confront, and racists are easily punished. That’s not the case.

So, the Leftist education system in very racist. Much like the Democrat party itself. Perhaps schools should teach the true history of the Democratic Party.

Instead of confronting racial and cultural divides, American education only serves to further them. Racial division is an inescapable fact of primary and post-secondary education itself, thanks to huge gaps in education quality that are closely tied to race and socioeconomic status. Some of the nation’s most underperforming schools are in primarily minority areas, reflecting the diminished opportunities for the nation’s children of color. Moreover, students of all races and backgrounds are subject to wildly differing history curricula, with Southern students often instructed that the Civil War was a “War of Northern Aggression.” Those distinctions matter.

Huh. I wonder why education is so bad in these areas. We dump huge amounts of money into these schools, yet, they continue to fail. But, see, we aren’t really allowed to discuss the real reasons, because that would be racist.

This is about much more than whose ancestors enslaved whose. It is about a persistent culture of willful ignorance, and the childish belief that standing in the middle of the classroom with our hands over our ears is an effective strategy in dealing with racism in contemporary America. We owe it to ourselves and the next generation to be honest about race—and that means creating an education policy that forces the issue.

But, we are told to put our hands over our mouths when it comes to discussing the reality of these majority-minority schools. The violence, the crime, the unwillingness to learn, because “learning is white”. Jared Taylor (yes, I know who he is), a writer for American Renaissance (yes, I know what the site is about), has a book called Face To Face with Race. In it is an article written by a teacher about schools. Over the top? Perhaps. Perhaps a bit generalize? Yes. This is the kind of thing we are Not Supposed To Discuss. Liberals do not want a discussion: they want a soliloquy. Toe the line or be smeared. Hence, the problems in schools can never be solved.

    The liberal education system continues to preach victimhood to all minorities….even though today WHITES are now a minority race as they comprise only like 47 percent of the population of the country while blacks, hispanics, asians, etc….comprise 53 percent of the country.

    Yet everything continues to be the whites fault. Racism is rampant in schools not because they teach racism but the suitors who would be kings in our political system continue to preach White people hate you in order to continue to get votes.

    The GOP has failed miserably by not reaching out to address these peoples needs because they too are needing to get votes and telling black or hispanics that were gonna give you more welfare is a sure fire way to not get nominated to run.

    So the problem starts well before schools. Schools are just a continuation of the policies of both parties but a culture of political correctness……

    HIDES THE PROBLEMS and the CAUSES rather then addresses them and solves them.

    I think that what needs to be done is for Teach to quit his current job and go to work as a teacher, molding and shaping the minds of young students. You know, walk the walk, don’t be like those warmists who refuse to change their life but tell others to live better/differently.
    Liam although blacks comprise less than 50% of the total population they they are over 70% of the voters. Votes elect politicians not population.
    Now Teach obviously you see that there are problems in American education. Why is it that you don’t personally try and do something about them.
    The problems in schools CAN be solved, BUT you must help do it. Bell the cat yourself.
    Or just blame the problem on others

  3. LOL. Warmists aren’t trying to get other people to live their lives better. That’s a lie, John.

    So now correctly identifying the problem is hypocrisy? I see. Just like identifying the need for military action without going yourself is hypocrisy? Funny, isn’t it, how no matter what the situation is, that the liberal response is, “Shut up.” Scared, John? Only bullies try to shut down the debate. Stop being a bully, John.

    john is confused…… again.

    Liam although blacks comprise less than 50% of the total population they they are over 70% of the voters. Votes elect politicians not population.

    According to the US Census Bureau, in 2012 there were 132,948 (in thousands) votes cast.

    White, non-Hispanic voters cast 98,041 votes (in thousands) or 73% of votes.

    Blacks cast 17,831 votes (in thousands) or 13.4% of the votes.

    Perhaps john needs to go back to school to learn how to read and do basic math?

    Whoah, John is a hot mess when it comes to facts and numbers!

    Note that the liberals go bananas when you mention failing schools and giving the poor children vouchers. This despite the fact that the parents are distressed as hell about sending their children to these god forsaken places. But also note that Asians, Indians, Jews and just about any other ethnic or cultural different group seem to still be able to excel. I wonder why it is just blacks that have difficulties?

    You are clearly a racist — and probably a cisheteronormative patriarchist to boot! — and I denounce you for asking such a question!

    My wife is a public school teacher and she will be the first to tell you that teaching has become two distict things.

    1. A baby sitter for lazy parents.
    2. An environment in which teachers are forced to teach to the test rather then EDUCATE students on a myriad of educational information.

    They spend all their down time going to seminars to learn how to teach to tests or be politically correct.

    In the process the students are getting worse and worse and worse….because when you talk to the parents…..most of the parents are FF’ing idiots who know less about stuff then their 6th grader.

  9. Dana says:

    Mr Thomas, the last pubic school teacher I spoke with about that — it was at a function for the parochial school where she sent her kids; imagine that! 🙂 — complained most about the mainstreaming of special education students, and how so much time and effort had to be put into just keeping them from pooping all over the floor.

  10. Liam Thomas says:

    @Dana

    My wife loves her job and we cannot go out to eat without one of her ex students coming up and hugging her….She has always spent an inordinate amount of time going above and beyond. Parents….especially ESl or English as a second language children’s parents are constantly telling the principal how impressed they are that my wife has taught their child how to read and understand using either Seeing Stars, Linda Mood Bell or one of several other ever changing methods of teaching.

    The point is that in many cases Hispanics or Asians or even Muslims coming to this country and greatly appreciating our education system are more interested in their children or grandchildrens progress then are Born in America parents who are more interested in Youtube, whose texting them on their Iphones and…..this is when My wife submitted her retirement papers……

    One parent told her….my daughter doesnt need to know anything…..during a parent teacher conference……….

    Are you ready?

    SHE CAN JUST GOOGLE IT…………

    that is if she can read
