Obama’s Department of Justice, under career race-baiter Eric Holder, issued a stark warning for schools across the country. It’s time to end the “racial disparity” in classrooms. Apparently, it is now “racist” to single out black students for misbehaving in the classroom. No longer is it acceptable to punish a black student, or other minority student, for behaviors that would negate suspension or strong disciplinary action. Thus, this only proves how racist the Department of Justice is in its deliberate manipulation of school policy. This is all about balancing the scales. Go easy on black students because they’re unfairly targeted, but punish other well behaving students to “even the playing field.” Obama’s Department of Justice is a nightmare, and the blame lies squarely on his shoulder’s and his comrade in arms, Eric Holder.
The Obama Administration’s singular accomplishment, besides igniting the vile flames of Islam both at home and abroad, is stoking perceived “racial tension.” For it was the Department of Justice that deliberately got involved in the George Zimmerman case, in order to make an example of him. What was the aim? To fan the flames of racial discord and create perceived tyranny for blacks at the hands of whites. In the process, they also wanted to go after guns “stand your ground” laws. The Obama Administration does not do anything without a motive. In perpetual race baiting, they can control the masses. Thus, the Department of Justice inserts itself in perceived “racial disparity” in schools, creating yet another mythical lie that blacks are unfairly singled out in schools for no reason other than race.
Attorney General Eric Holder said the recommendations were meant to protect the civil rights of students, and disrupt the so-called “school-to-prison pipeline.” Civil rights advocates have long said that overly zealous school discipline policies target black and Hispanic students, pulling them out of schools and into the court system.
“Each year, significant numbers of students miss class due to suspensions and expulsions – even for minor infractions of school rules – and students of color and with disabilities are disproportionately impacted,” the Justice Department said in a news release. “The guidance package provides resources for creating safe and positive school climates, which are essential for boosting student academic success and closing achievement gaps.”
In other words, schools should stop punishing minority students for disciplinary infractions. If a student disobeys school rules, he or she should be punished in the appropriate manner, regardless of skin color. Only Obama’s Department of Justice would dare imply that it is “racist” to punish students of color for general infractions.
The Daily Caller reports, Eric Holder’s DOJ co-wrote the letter with the Department of Education, and sent it to public schools across the country yesterday. First among its decrees: Schools should not strive to treat all races the same; rather, they should treat the races differently, levying weaker punishments when necessary, in order to effect equal outcomes among students of all races.
The problem? Not all races are equally likely to misbehave at school. Boys, for instance, get into trouble much more frequently than girls. And black, Hispanic and Native American children — who are far more likely to grow up in single-parent households — have higher misbehavior rates than white and Asian students, according to Roger Clegg of National Review.
So if a black male student curses in class, or refuses to do what a teacher asks, the teacher will first have to consider the race of the student before issuing discipline; or not disciplining, if the behavior is menial. However, if a white male student does the same thing, the teacher should crack down on him to even the playing field. This is grotesque, and it will only help to ruin an already failing education system.
The public school system is already ruined by the horror that is Common Core. This just adds more absurd, racial policies that will limit a teacher’s potential to teach, and will negatively impact students that are well-behaved. The term “well-behaved” can apply to all races, unless the Department of Justice has deemed this a racially charged statement, one implying white privilege. But the goal here is to protect minority student’s “civil rights” and the “school-to-prison pipeline.”
“Effective discipline is, and always will be, a necessity. But a routine school discipline infraction should land a student in a principal’s office – not in a police precinct,” Holder said.
Holder said many students were suspended, expelled or arrested for minor infractions such as school uniform violations, schoolyard fights or laughing in class.
School yard fights are not usually minor infractions. They can cause serious harm to students and faculty, but in this case, if a black student instigates a fight or disrupts class, the teacher should just let it go. This is unfair targeting. Of course, school rules are uniform, but this makes it to where schools MUST discipline proportionately, or face Department of Justice charges.
“You have to make certain that your school discipline cases match those percentages. If you don’t, you’ll have the feds on your doorstep,” said Joshua Dunn, a political science professor at the University of Colorado and director of the university’s Center for Legal Studies. “If they actually do enforce these guidelines, there will be unintended consequences. This creates some rather destructive incentives. I don’t think there’s any way around that.”
“Eventually, you’ll have disorder in schools. … They either suspend white students for relatively trivial things or they don’t punish black students for behavior that is really disruptive or even violent,” said Hans Bader, a senior attorney at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “You’re effectively commanding them to have racial quotas” with respect to which students are disciplined and how often.
The Obama tyranny is never ending. In these outrageous rules, the Department of Justice is creating more situations where schools can be targeted for “racial disparity.” This is just further proof that racial thuggery starts at the top, and it is systematically destroying the United States.
