Chicago sued for alleged
discrimination against
black teachers

The federal lawsuit filed on Wednesday and announced on Thursday is the latest battle with the city since teachers staged a week-long strike in September. It alleges that more than half of the tenured teachers fired in the most recent round of school closings and turnarounds were African American. But blacks make up less than 30 percent of the tenured teaching staff in the district and 35 percent of the tenured teacher population in the failing schools, the lawsuit claims.

Comments:
What an absolute farce.
Yet another example of liberalism creating a plethora of problems that we will all have to pay for.

The mobbed-up ´Waste Management´ companies had more integrity than the current inner city public schools racket.

In BRA this should not be happening. It implies that these black teachers are not very good in the classroom. reading m$m we know that blacks excell at government jobs... something is very wrong here.

Here´s an idea!

How ´bout we do away with all government owned and operated schools - - and let parents pick and pay for the schools to which they want to send their chillun.

Think that´d work? I sure do - - - - - -

How did these unqualified teachers get hired in the first place?

Oh, wait. . .

35% ? The census shows 14% blacks in the USA..so why weren´t more whites, Asians and Hispanics recruited for these jobs in the first place?
Why don´t Chicago parents sue the teachers for non-performance?

Affirmative action allows some minority students to graduate from H.S. without rudimentary skills. And Affirmative action allows some minority students to attend college on scholarships, even though their SATs are terribly low. (SATs predict sucess in the freshman year.)
Affirmative action allows some minority students, already referenced above, to graduate from college without possessing college level skills.
And affirmative action allows some of those students to be hired as teachers in places like chicago, and any other large city with a black population. The argument is that black students have to have role models at the front of the classroom. And some schools of education are pushing for black males to become teachers, to meet the perceived role model need, since a majority of black students reside in women led households, with no daddy in sight, but lots of ´uncles.´
But eventually, the house of cards called affirmative action collapses, as it is collapsing in chicago. And relentless leftists like rahm emanuel come face to face with their convictions - sort of like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.

If they filled out the forms correctly and documented the problems then this should hold up. Testing for certification is a rather recent requirement and I would guess many of these teachers were among the oldest and longest tenured teachers in the system.

They should know that you cannot fire based upon merit!

You must fire based upon skin color - or you might accidentally discriminate.

Hard as I struggled to remain angry and indignant about this lawsuit, I found myself, in spite of myself, feeling sorry for those responsible for it. I don´t WANT to pity them. I would much rather be angry with them. But it´s no use, because I cannot pull it off. How can one be angry with or fail to feel pity for people as far removed from reality as these plaintiffs? They deserve our help, not our contempt - but of course helping them is a challenging, perhaps and impossible task. They are not willing to be helped because they do not understand that they need help.

Sorry Charlie, if you´re not the most qualified candidate, we gotta let ya go....

I worked with so many black women "chair-warmers" in my 25-year stint as a Counselor that it wasnt funny...it was embarassing.They werent the brightest bulbs in the room. And dont call me a sexist or a racist, I am truly telling you the truth...no fake embrace of "diversity" here, just whats best and smartest and creative enough to effectively and successfully teach our students. Period.

How did they EVER get hired ahead of better qualified men and women? You know the answer!

I guess Rahmis showing some level of guts here. he had to know he would get flooded with lawsuits. Imagine being unqualified for a job getting you the grounds for a suit.They´ve let this monster go on too long,patronage,affirmative action,do nothing jobs. The union squeezed a big raise they couldn´t afford,so they had to cut back somewhere. Non-performing people is a good place to start.

Wonder if this will start a trend,somehow I doubt it.

Maybe they got fired because they were incompetent. In NY, if a black shows up on an employment register, you have to hire them whether they´re competent or not.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

It was a busy Saturday afternoon at Penn Square and this was happening up on the second floor in front of a growing crowd. A woman, accused of shoplifting, now topless and wrestling with security on the ground. Her bare chest exposed to everyone who walks by. Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching. The man who shot this cell phone video walked out of Dillards and immediately saw a nearly naked brawl between a topless woman and a mall security guard. Witnesses say the security officer called

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

   

 



 
Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe
GOP Will Repeal Obamacare
CBS News (Wash. D.C.), by Staff    Original Article

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
