Black students are suspended more than three times as often as their white classmates, twice as often as their Latino classmates and more than 10 times as often as their Asian classmates in middle and high schools nationwide, a new study shows. The average American secondary student has an 11% chance of being suspended in a single school year, according to the study from the University of California Los Angeles Civil Rights project. However, if that student is black, the odds of suspension jump to 24%.
Comments: Great, first there´s hardly any black lawyers and now this. What could it all mean?
Chicago public schools have recently reshaped their discipline strategy to keep students in the classroom, said Jen Loudon,director of youth development and positive behavior support. Suspensions dropped by 21% in the first year after the district abandoned a mandatory suspension policy.
Yeah, from what I read, Chicago is doing a great job with it´s "youth." /s
Maybe they are suspended more often because they cause the behavior that requires suspension. It could be that simple. Has anyone seen the Chicago shooting stats from the past several years? Like it or not most are blacks shooting other blacks. They shot each other over shoes and jackets. I work in a middle school and some of these kids are future inmates courtesy of the state tax payers. Look at them wrong, bump them in the hall, "dis" them and my all time favorite "he´s messing with me" will cause a fight.
So many have not really learned to read; yet they get passed on to the next grade. Teachers don´t want to keep a kid back for various reasons, but I can testify that at the middle school level, the bad actors are so far behind that it´s nearly impossible for them to do anything else but make trouble. The more trouble they make, the more probable they will be passed on to the next grade.
Somethings wrong, my comments seem to post before I get done commenting.... As I was saying ....Lets not candy coat it is some imaginary discrimination case that these black lawyers are scamming to make a load of settlement cash. How about we re-word the statement to say: "Black students commit suspend-able offenses and exhibit suspend-able behavior more than three times as often as their white classmates, twice as often as their Latino classmates and more than 10 times as often as their Asian classmates in middle and high schools nationwide.". Tell it like it is.
Here are a couple of observations. Most white people go to churches where we are quiet unless we are singing hymns or making prayer responses as part of the liturgy. Most blacks go to churches where people shout out, make noise at random, and the like, and chillun learn from that. That carries over into school behavior. Second, the Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) program, covers disabilities. Federal judges have ruled that a child who acts up in school has a learning disability, and is thus eligible for SSI payments from the federal government. And the 700 dollar per month check goes to baby momma. And the best proof of continuing disability is if the child is disciplined in school! Finally, Obama issued an executive order on July 26, 2012, requiring quotas for school discipline by race and ethnic group. Think about that.

Now let´s look at the percentage of blacks that have no father at home, drop out of high school and commit black on black crime and see if there is a correlation.
You know white conservatives are always called racists but the real racists are those liberals that refuse to look at what is going on and play victimizing card. The only way things are going to get better is if the black community starts taking responsibility for its own.
If one want to write the results of a "study" it should include the kind of trouble whites get into compared to blacks, latinos compared to blacks and of course Asians compared to blacks. Unless of course you want me to believe that an Asian, White, Latino and a Black all get caught carrying a bag of pot and a gun (and all with no previous offenses) get different penalties, with the Black kid getting the harshest, is that right?
We as a country are reaping what was sown over the past 2 generations. An entire race of people has been made dependent and nearly illiterate by liberal policies. The numbers tell the truth and liberals never like numbers. A small segment of the 12% of the population is responsible for more than half of the crime in the country. Liberals played their fiddles while the inner cities lost jobs, population, and thus real diversity. Blacks in this country have truly been kept on the plantation by liberals both white and black. .
If the parent doesn´t care the kid won´t care. Attitude toward authority plays a big role. Black Liberations Theology taught nothing whitey does is worth emulating. Whitey behaves, make sure you don´t.
Two of my cousins gave up the thought of teaching...in each case they lasted only two years. They taught in the Cherry Hill district of Baltimore. They could not put up with the abuse of many of the elementary school age black kids and the neglect and abuse of their parents. This was in the 70s and things have only gotten worse. I remember some years past an article in the Baltimore Sun where a young black female student said she no longer wanted to go to her mostly black school becasue so many of the students behaved like animals. Liberal policies and poor stewardship by leaders are responsible.
If school attendance wasn´t mandatory, there would a lot lower suspension rate. A good chunk of the kids do not want to be there, and they make it harder for the kids who DO want to be there. A few years out on the street might motivate them to come back to school.
Here are the markings of success, regardless of race /color/ ethnitcity:
2 parent family Involvement in a sport/team event Church Volunteer hours
Casual study over the years of top achievers in schools- rich or poor , urban or suburb
Now, if Democrats and Union Thugs were really interested in improving schools- we would have a voucher system empowering parents and choice. However, this does not fit the government knows better scenerio.
Drive down the road at 2 miles over the speed limit, count the number of people that pass you. Determine what percentage of them that are black - compare that number to their overall national percentage -
When people taught that laws do not apply to them, that they are entitled because of their skin color, naturally they are going to be a miscreants and worse. In a fair world, miscreants are punished.
Laying the groundwork for the DOJ to step in and tell middle and high school that they will no longer be able to suspend students of color. Must be another reason old Eric the Red wants to hire 44 new civil rights attorneys. Tie everyone up in knots and allow bad behavior to not only continue, but to be sanctioned. What a mess...
Look, a black student starting a fight!....You Racist!
Look, a black student joining a violent gang!....You racist!
Look, a black male committing numerous violent crimes!....You racist!
Look, black men committing a home invasion!..You racist!
Look, black thugs killing black babies in the ghetto!...You racist!
Arent you tired of this? The ass-press always inferring that WE (white people) are the problem simply because the "facts" point out that blacks cause so much violence, especially against their own kind, and cause so much disruption in schools and cant stay away from gangs or drugs....enough social studies determined to find out WHY they are violent and criminal..it´s in their NATURE! No matter if they are purple, green, or orange! It´s in their NATURE! Say it!
It´s not RACIST if it´s true! Liberals shun the truth....just look at Benghazi...or the IRS...or anything said by this administration...these lefty asses HATE the truth! And the truth is, BLACKS act out more emotionally and violently and cost our society so much money, and thus are suspended, or jailed, for their outbursts and crimes...simple facts, not racism, you LIARS!!!
FTA: "Sweet-Love believes that white teachers are more likely to deem a black student "threatening" instead of simply disobedient, and therefore more likely to "make an example" by suspending a black students."
Since when do teachers suspend students? Last I heard, that was a function of school administrators.
Most school districts provide handbooks to parents and students on the first day of the school year. The rules are spelled out. If you don´t want to be suspended, don´t fight, don´t skip school, don´t abuse staff, and don´t disrupt the learning environment for other students.
Just once, I would like to see the people doing these studies get out there in the schools and try to teach. I wonder how many black students versus white students would be suspended. Hello, maybe it´s because they cause more trouble???
Well don´t despair planned parent hood and doctors like the good ole boy are doing their best to eliminate the little black students for you. Perhaps the escapees from that fate feel like a hunted species and prey upon each other for what ever space they can secure. Sometimes it´s an education to sit in the back pew of that nice quit white church and notice how many worshipers are actually snoozing or fast asleep.Maybe a few joyful loud songs and praise be to the LORD could wake them up.
I have been volunteering one day a week on a project at my local catholic high school for almost a year. There is a pretty high percentage of "minority" students. I have not seen one instance of bad behavior in the halls or classrooms by any student of any race. I have been impressed. The kids wear uniforms, hear or say prayers all through the day, and are part of a culture of respect. I assume too that there is at least one involved parent in each home, but the behavior I´ve seen is exemplary.
My daughter´s school district is 40% "diversified." The school board hired a "diversified" superintendent. The superintendent initiated a policy to discourage Caucasian teachers from disciplining "diversified" students. Guess what? Suspensions are down, school violence is up. Problem solved, I guess.
The black community lost its way when it placed its trust in false prophets like Jesse Jackson and All Sharpton who told them what they wanted to hear rather than what they needed to hear - that their troubles did not come from oppression by the Man but from the moral rot within their communities once the Sexual Revolution and the War on Poverty wreaked havoc on the family units of black communities in the 1960´s and ´70´s.
When I was in school it was true, the black kids were always doing ´dumb´ things that got them either sitting in the principal´s office or suspended. And it looks like they are still doing ´dumb´ things.
I just love this stuff. It is so stupid and disingenuous. These ´studies´ have been going on for at least 40 years. It is probably also true that the numbers would be greater if you consider political correctness and many of the ones causing the trouble have been saved by it. The studies come out at frequent intervals when new jails need to be built. We go through a period where we are all racists because we imprison blacks at a higher rate. The studies take a few years off and then start again with their agenda which is to put us all in danger for not being politically correct. The cycle looks like it has resumed for a while.
WASHINGTON -- The Affordable Care Act is a "war on women" that denies mothers the ability to make choices for their families, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., said Saturday. The ACA, beginning Aug. 12, 2012, requires insurance plans to provide new preventive benefits including contraceptives, breastfeeding supplies and gestational diabetes screening for pregnant women, prenatal care, routine breast and pelvic exams and pap tests used to detect potentially precancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix. Delivering the GOP´s weekly address, Ellmers called on President Barack Obama to get rid of the law or at least delay its implementation. Ellmers, a nurse and mother
In South Carolina, the American flag that flies over the Pickens County Sheriff´s Office will be raised high over the weekend despite an order by President Obama that flags be lowered to half-staff to honor the death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela. Sheriff Rick Clark told GreenvilleOnline.com that he is ordering the flag be raised on Sunday because the honor of lowering flags to half-staff should be reserved for Americans. "The flag at half-staff is for Americans´ ultimate sacrifice for our country," Clark said. "We should never stray away from that." The flag is currently flying at half-staff in honor of
Mitsubishi is the latest in a long line of automakers to slash prices on an electric car, the unpronounceable, unfortunately named i-MiEV. The model is now the cheapest EV on the market, yet it’s still hard to imagine many drivers excitedly running out to buy one. Overall, American consumers are paying more for cars. The average price paid for a new light vehicle in November was $32,769, up 3% compared to October, and 1.1% year over year, according to Kelley Blue Book. Yet as average prices rise, one segment of the new car market has gotten markedly cheaper. “Electric vehicles had
Nelson Mandela is being remembered across the world (and political spectrum) for his heroic, life-long battle against apartheid and injustice in South Africa. But with all the accolades being thrown around, it’s easy to forget that the U.S., in particular, hasn’t always had such a friendly relationship with Mandela -- and that in fact, as late as 2008, the Nobel Prize winner and former president was still on the U.S. terrorism watch list.(snip)Eventually, of course, the U.S. did pass economic sanctions, which are widely credited for helping topple -- at least in part -- the apartheid regime. Mandela went on
President Barack Obama and his family will spend Christmas in Hawaii again this year, and are expected to stay in the same beachfront Kailua neighborhood where they´ve spent the past five year-end holidays. Hawaii News Now reports the Obamas are expected to arrive around Dec. 20 and stay until Jan. 5. While Obama typically spends a lot of time at the nearby Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay, working out in the gym and playing golf, he does tend to venture out to the same local businesses each trip. Among his favorites are Island Snow and Buzz´s Original Steakhouse in Kailua,
On a break from pretending to believe they live in a country bristling with violent white racists, the Non-Fox Media have been trying to debunk stories about the "Knockout Game," in which young black males approach random strangers and try to knock them out with one punch. The left´s leading line of defense against the Knockout Game is to argue that young black males have always been violent, so, hey, this is nothing new. You´re welcome, black America! In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: "The ´Knockout Game´ is a myth." Reminiscing about the flash mobs
CASPER, Wyo. — The Power Company of Wyoming plans to apply next month for a federal permit that will allow the firm to kill a limited number of eagles every year at its planned Chokecherry-Sierra Madre wind farm in Carbon County. The decision of the Denver-based developer to seek what is known as an “eagle-take permit” from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reflects what may be the beginning of a trend, industry observers said. Fish and Wildlife has never granted a take permit to a wind developer, but is currently considering several applications, said Dave Carlson, National Environmental Protection
President Obama has declared his renewed commitment to fighting income inequality. But we now have five years of evidence to draw upon, and it’s clear that Obama’s methods in this regard have failed miserably. In fact, they’ve worked about as well as Obamacare. Obama’s approach to addressing income inequality, of course, is to funnel ever more money and power to Washington, while promoting a culture of cozy cronyism between Big Government and Big Business (especially Big “Green” Business). When having a well-positioned team of Washington lawyers and lobbyists becomes a necessary prerequisite to getting ahead, that’s hardly conducive to Main St.
CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- One Saturday in November, Kaveh Kamooneh drove his Nissan Leaf to Chamblee Middle School, where his 11-year-old son was playing tennis. Kamooneh had taken the liberty of charging the electric car with an exterior outlet at the school. Within minutes of plugging in the car, he says a Chamblee police officer appeared. "He said that he was going to charge me with theft by taking because I was taking power, electricity from the school," Kamooneh said. Kamooneh says he had charged his car for 20 minutes, drawing about a nickel´s worth of juice. Don Francis of Clean Cities Atlanta, an
Recently, a prominent Massachusetts Democrat spotted Senator Elizabeth Warren at an airport and saw an opportunity. Have you read The New Republic, Philip W. Johnston asked Warren playfully, showing her the cover of the magazine he had just purchased. It was devoted to whether Warren would run for president. Warren wasn’t having any of it. She answered with an exaggerated eye roll that cut short any further talk of the 2016 presidential race. “She doesn’t want to talk about it in any serious way,” said Johnston, a supporter. On Wednesday, Warren became so sick of media speculation that she might run as a populist
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- D-Day arrived for Obamacare Saturday and it began with an 11-hour shutdown of the website. The system is functioning a bit better than before but is still terribly inadequate. Applications are in limbo -- many already initiated are stalled, lost or otherwise can´t be completed. Applicants eligible for subsidies must use the website, or HealthCare.org paper alternatives that can´t handle the volume and the system often can´t verify applicants´ eligibility for aid. Overall, the website still fails to complete the enrollment process for many who try. Website software to get insurance companies paid subsidies isn´t functioning and
President Obama is trying to work off some of the calories from the nine Thanksgiving Day pies on the White House menu with a game of basketball.The commander-in-chief is stepping out of the White House to play hoops at the FBI headquarters, according to a White House pool report. It´s unclear who the president is playing with. Obama, a big basketball fan, picked up a game last Sunday at the FBI headquarters after announcing the interim agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences. New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners. “It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are
Chris Matthews‘ exclusive interview with President Barack Obama was #1 in the 25-54 demo at 7pm and the second highest-rated show in the demo for all of cable news, despite airing during other network’s live coverage of Nelson Mandela’s death. With 298K viewers in the demo, MSNBC’s Hardball beat Fox’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, which had 218K, in the 7pm time slot. The only show with more viewers in the demo than Hardball was Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, which had 405K viewers at 8pm. With 1.296M total viewers, Matthews came within 3K of Greta Van Susteren, who
