Minneapolis School Officials Try To
Figure Out Why Black Students
Suspended More Than White Peers

Daily Caller, by Rob Shimshock

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/19/2018 6:14:54 PM

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

They will figure that out as soon as they figure out why blacks commit more crimes even though they number fewer in the population. s/o Once again the vile Obama is mentioned related his relaxing of the rules for disciplining minorities. Almost every malady in society is related to horrific policies from Democrats. Very sadly the most recent example was the deaths of those 17 students in Florida all because PC reigned and Obama policies were followed.

Come on folks. They are "school officials". They are therefore intellectually incapable of finding the answer staring them directly in the face. Instead they will fall back to muttering some politically correct pabulum, congratulating themselves on the quality of their virtue signaling.

This is clearly a problem that requires an Obama/Holder solution: Prohibit suspending all black students and expel all the whites.

These kids don’t know how to behave, to stay out of trouble. No family support, or if there is they prefer to follow troubled peers who look cool, rappers who preach the bad in life. They haven’t the guidance - inner and outer - that would keep them out of trouble. And they punish any among them who do, calling them “Oreos”, stealing from them, even beating them up.

Feral forever? One begins to believe so.

Meanwhile the blacks in positions of authority preach to them that they are victims. They are, but not of white society. It is their society that is victimizing them.

#4, it is also ´whose your daddy?´

If a child´s home life includes family fights and loud arguments, violence, dishonesty, a baby momma who prefers to go clubbing all night, practice wanton promiscuity, no father,a child going to school does not know how to behave. And in most cases, there is no father to set an example or provide discipline.
I suggest that if you people watch a few episodes of Maury Povich, you will see exactly what I am talking about. And you will conclude that Maury, in spite of himself, is showing us what the black sub culture is really like.
Public school teachers in an urban environment don´t really have a chance.
(Quick story) In Syracuse, NY, recently, two black teenage girls, age 16, were fighting at the high school. A white substitute math teacher, a male, tried to break up the fight. One of the girls stabbed him in the neck. She was arrested and jailed. It was her fourth felony.
After several weeks, she appeared before a local judge, and he complimented her on her positive behavior in jail. And he reduced her bail.
The math teacher still hopes to receive a full time teaching position at the high school.
Beam me up, Scotty.

If students who are called to the carpet for discipline reasons were sent to the decision maker for punishment...and their names, race, etc. were kept from that decision maker and only the infraction was considered, I´d bet my house that the race breakdown of suspensions would not change AT ALL.

I´ve noticed, and you probably have as well, that schools will ask invasive questions, sometimes in the form of a survey (ie free research for PhDs who are raking it in) about: drug use, sexuality, career interests, etc etc.

One set of questions that is verboten is, of course, what one´s home life is like. Parents married? Both living at home? One or both employed? Do they attend conferences? PTA? School events?

These questions, of course, would tend to make certain students mighty squirmy so they aren´t asked despite being the most relevant to and predictive of school behavior.

The black mothers don´t mind having more black babies. To them it´s a pay increase on their welfare and an increase in food stamps. They figure they´ll let "the village" that Hillary talks about raise their illegitimate kids.
A few towns away from where I live there was an entire shopping mall closed down because of unruly black youth. They would block the entrances to stores and they used the food court as a gathering place to yell and holler. They would commandeer the tables and chairs meant for those who bought their meals so the paying public had no place to sit.
Just like one of their neighborhoods the place just fell apart. Closed permanently. A real shame.

Coming from a fatherless home is the number one predictor of juvenile delinquency. Liberals shouted down conservatives when we spoke up about the importance of marriage and two parent families. Since the beginning of the War on Poverty (i.e. welfare designed by Democrats in a way that destroyed the nuclear family), illegitimacy in our inner cities has tripled. Political Correctness prohibits discussing any of this rationally. Also, instead of denouncing rappers (whose "music" glorifies misogyny, violence, hatred for whites and hatred and mistrust of the police), the Obamas repeatedly invited rappers to party with them at the White House.

"Why are black kids suspended more than white kids?"...Answer...because they broke more rules than the white kids.

I think Jim Carey had some good advice when talking to a client who could not stop doing armed robberies, in his smash hit movie, "Liar, Liar"..."Stop breaking the law."

Because they come from either black US inner city culture where violence and lawbreaking are considered the norm, and they are told that all their problems are caused by whites.

Or - they are Somalis who are used to living in a third world stinkhole, and they follow the 7th century barbarian religion.

1st: #3 has it right.
This is all about self induced ignorance. The blind leading the blind, so-to-speak. It is political correctness carried to the near infinity. Obviously, if they are "School Officials" they are thoroughly indoctrinated progressives who know full well what the problem is, but, they simply can never say the words. In fact, they can not say a single one of the words even out of context. Blacks have been so thoroughly "Plantation-ed" by the Democrats, they are incapable of escaping their new found owners. The blacks desperately sought equality and suddenly found themselves racing right on past equality and straight into self induced New-segregation. They can´t do anything now but try to feel even more victimized. But, the Democrats won´t let them wake up to the reality that what has happened to them is entirely Democratic party fault.

Entitlement, self pity, brow beaten into a firm arrogance of fear and fight- striking out at the slightest perceived "racism" - "How come da pepper got to be black?", "You tawkin´ like a white dude, man! Black yo sef up, M´fer!" Viciousness and separatist superiority has made black children unmanageable. Without black fathers to guide them, the problem only gets worse. And the Democrats love every product of that anger- anger of the blacks at themselves and no one can do a thing to stop it but themselves! And they won´t.

Culture Counts.

Remember Democrat President LBJ´s words back in 1964...."I´ll have those [enwords] voting Democrat for the next Two Hundred Years."
The Democrat-run Congress passed legislation... the ´Great Society´... that paid families to break up. (No wefare if there was a man living in the house, but money available for single females with children.) This payment was enough to break up most 2-parent black families.
What we have today is the result.

As poster #14 noted.... control for 2-parent families in the statistics and the differences pretty much disappear.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

President Donald Trump is clearly James Comey’s No. 1 target in his new book, but the fired FBI director also paints a highly unflattering picture of another of his previous bosses, Rudy Giuliani. In “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey repeatedly invokes Giuliani’s craving for publicity during his tenure as New York’s most famous federal prosecutor in the 1980s, before he became mayor, and paints his flaws almost as a biblical allegory about the dangers of excessive pride and ego. “There was something of an unwritten code about working in the office of Rudy Giuliani,” Comey observed. “In his case, the message was that

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Trump ally Roger Stone has doubled down on his criticism of Barbara Bush after calling the former first lady "a nasty drunk" following news she had died Tuesday at the age of 92. "She is descending into hell right now. She´s not going to heaven. She was a bad person," Stone told controversial website InfoWars.com Wednesday. Stone´s comments come after he posted an initial statement on Instagram where he tore into the former first lady following her death.

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

In an article by “The Editors of GQ,” the men’s magazine blasts the Holy Bible, declares it a book you don’t have to read, and suggests an alternative. In its April 19 article, “21 Books You Don’t Have to Read” (originally, "21 Books You Don´t Have to Read Before You Die"), Gentlemen’s Quarterly (GQ) trashes 20 books (“Huckleberry Finn” is counted twice, for some reason) it deems undeserving of their literary stature: “[N]ot all the Great Books have aged well. Some are racist and some are sexist, but most are just really, really boring. So we—and a group of un-boring

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a combative former prosecutor and longtime ally of President Trump, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview. Giuliani, who joins a legal team that has struggled to recruit new members to its ranks, said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State

A small group of mostly high school students gathered in front of the White House on Friday as part of the National School Walkout, an anti-gun protest launched by a Connecticut teen following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. (Snip)“And so too must we regulate the Second Amendment,” Berlin said. “Just as the freedoms of the First Amendment are subject to rules and regulation so too must be those protected under the Second.” “No amendment is absolute,” Berlin said. “Your right to a gun does not supersede my right to graduate high school.”
