Along with black slums, where the homicide rate shot up under the prodding of the outgoing Obama Administration, prime loci of the Late Obama Age Collapse have been college campuses and public schools. The Trump Administration’s plan for curing the problems created by the Obama Administration is, apparently, to stop doing the things the Obama Administration did to encourage so many hate hoaxes like Haven Monahan, which traces back to the Obama Admin’s “Dear Colleague” letter, and nervous breakdowns over microaggressions that led to the Black Fall in 2015 at places like the U. of Missouri. Similarly, the Trump Administration will stop the Obama Administration’s policy of persecuting public school districts for their causing black males to be more rowdy than Asian females. From the NYT:

Education Dept. Says It Will Scale Back Civil Rights Investigations
By ERICA L. GREEN JUNE 16, 2017

WASHINGTON — The Department of Education is scaling back investigations into civil rights violations at the nation’s public schools and universities, easing off mandates imposed by the Obama administration that the new leadership says have bogged down the agency.

According to an internal memo issued by Candice E. Jackson, the acting head of the department’s office for civil rights, requirements that investigators broaden their inquiries to identify systemic issues and whole classes of victims will be scaled back. Also, regional offices will no longer be required to alert department officials in Washington of all highly sensitive complaints on issues such as the disproportionate disciplining of minority students and the mishandling of sexual assaults on college campuses.

The new directives are the first steps taken under Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to reshape her agency’s approach to civil rights enforcement, which was bolstered while President Barack Obama was in office. The efforts during Mr. Obama’s administration resulted in far-reaching investigations and resolutions that required schools and colleges to overhaul policies addressing a number of civil rights concerns.

That approach sent complaints soaring, and the civil rights office found itself understaffed and struggling to meet the department’s stated goal of closing cases within 180 days.

In the good old days under Obama, the following was a federal matter:

For example, the department received a complaint that a black student at the Lodi Unified School District in California, about an hour south of Sacramento, received harsher punishment than a white student after the two were in a fight.

The Obama Administration was shocked, shocked to learn that blacks students in the Lodi school district got in trouble more on average than other students:

According to a published settlement agreement, the investigation found that schools with higher percentages of black students established stricter punishment for discipline incidents, and a review of four years of data revealed that black students across the district received disproportionately higher levels of discipline than white students.

Something that the Obama Adminstration, however, never ever looked into was whether there is a single school district in this country where blacks don’t misbehave more often. Because, after all, that might raise doubts about federal power grabs in school districts that come under the Eye of Soros. If virtually every single school district in the country was guilty, then the Obama Administration could take over any school district’s policy on anything it wanted, usually with the cooperation of Obama-friendly elements within that district.

    When are we going to go back and thank the Stupid Party for being right? About Civil Rights, in this case. Opposition to which was merely dumb, ignorant habit and poor taste, according to all the best people, who knew better. And were either liars or fools.

    Civil Rights, the extension of which was to correct wrongs and set us on the path to racial harmony, turned out to be a hammer rapping on the head of Whitey forever. The great reversal toward justice that all the brights promised would set things right once and for all back in 1960-whatever, is reversing things to this day. With not as much zeal as before, admittedly, but with a moral force still above the level of normal politics. We can’t get back to normality, ever.

    It’s a series of blank checks, in addition to being a hammer, drawn on our civilization’s savings account. Cashed in many times a year, never putting anything back into the fund.

    Then again, the Stupid Party never got credit for being on the right side against socialism, which all the brights in the days before the hundred million murders were inclined to see as the solution to the social problem. Even if it is the solution, none of them saw the carnage coming. And if the Stupids didn’t either, at least they saw something bad coming, whatever that may have been. People below their station talking out of turn, or whatever. Point is, they were more right.

    The trick the brights pulled making everyone associate the concept of civil rights with supposedly egalitarian racial chicanery is admirable, though. Whoda thunk that were possible, back when?

  2. The union thugs who run the teachers’ unions know damn well that Black students cause a disproportionate amount of the violence and misbehaviour in public schools. Anti-White Obama knows that Blacks are more likely than Whites to cause violence and mayhem in public schools.

    Obama was trying to tamp down any attempt by Whites to notice the disproportionate amount of Black mayhem in public schools by suggesting that Black students are punished more than White students in public schools. Obama knows that the reason why Black students are punished more, and expelled more, is because Black students cause more mayhem in public schools.

    Obama and the teachers’ union thugs know that Black student misbehaviour is the problem, not the school administrators responding to the Black student misbehaviour.

    Obama is a malignant mulatto from the Pritzker Gang out in Chicago. I hope the bankrupt state of Illinois eyes up the loot of the Pritzkers pretty good. How is the state government of Illinois going to pay for all those government workers in Illinois? Go after the loot of the Pritzkers, dammit!

    I have a question. Hopefully this will come early enough that someone will notice it.

    A lot of blacks are way past passing the paper bag test. I have no idea what percentage of white ancestry we are talking about, but it is really high for a lot of them.

    Yet we have the noted fact that elite blacks test lower than whites of lower class.

    There is a mix of genes responsible for intelligence. Surely a lot of lighter skinned blacks must by sheer chance have the same mix of intelligence genes as whites of lower class.

    Yet we have this gap. My question is, is there something in the mix of West African genes that “interferes” with the way in which genes in whites interact to result in intelligence?

    I guess Steve could pull out his collection of “shiny” NAACP officers. But there is something you wouldn’t expect going on with this.

    Sometimes I wonder what unethical medical experiments might uncover. What happens if you suppress testosterone levels in blacks to say Asian levels? And you did this while the brain is developing? (Adolescence for sure, and maybe toddlerhood, though I’m not clear on whether pre-adolescents have testerone production.)

    And what about the Ibbos in Africa? They are supposed to be pretty smart. There is a saying in Perl programming, “There’s more than one way to do it.” Maybe they have a different mix of genes working to result in intelligence than whites do?

    As per a number of articles on iSteve about that Raj Chetty study, whites seem to have phenomenally high upward mobility compared with other groups. This could indicate that even samples of lower class whites would yield average IQs in the 90-95 range.

    At the same time, the African American genome has always included a large number of high yellers and others displaying higher proportions of wine in the mud. In the past, this group may have outperformed the white lower class and even the white middle class. But today, the definition of black elite has become so diluted, as a result of affirmative action and a corporate asset bubble in token negroes (suit wearing, not PCP smoking), that this group's progeny no longer tests above the white lower class because 1) they are not significantly outperforming the black average and 2) the lower class white average, as we would expect to be the case when such high upward mobility is seen, is higher than what many would otherwise perceive.

    I have no data to back this claim up, just sayin.

One of my sons is the same age as Otto, ouch for his parents - oh, how sad for them.

    My sons would not have been able to be in North Korea without pulling an outrageously funny (to my sons) stunt. But, what was done to Otto is child torture...human torture.

    Seems like Otto was lobotomized with lingering poison, or was "partially" euthanized like a dog, at something like the Yulin Dog Meat Festival (this is why I hate the Chinese, hate, hate hate them).

    There appears to be two contradictory ideas, you know, Orwell's "doublethink."

    One idea is that the underfunding of public schools along with the general climate of race hatred results in the public schools doing a bad job closing the achievement gap.

    The other idea is that charter schools, am I to assume they are adequately funded because Gates Foundation or whatever reason and that they create a nurturing environment within their walls not found in the race-hating broader society, that these charter schools fail at closing the achievement gap too? That they only appear to close the achievement gap by "cherry picking" their students?

    So how is it that making every public school a charter school by giving it whatever resources it needs going to close the achievement gap when public schools are not allowed to "cheat" by being selective of students the way charter schools do?

    Supposing for sake of discussion that we adopt the T.D. agenda of abolishing private schools, taxing the rich more, restricting freedom of choice in housing, instituting a Curriculum of Color (what does that entail?), and banning this particular Web site. Those ideas are rather unpopular here, and some of them may run up against the U.S. Constitution, but hey, the Constitution, after all, is a living document and it is not entirely plausible that the T.D. Program becomes the law-of-the-land.

    Then what? Public schools will still be restricted from screening students, so they will perform no better than today's charter schools, were those schools to be forbidden from screening their students? Where does that leave us?

    Furthermore, the claim that charter schools only "work" because they screen students is a very iSteve-like thing to say. Has T.D. been to the Alt-Right Room 101 and emerged with feelings of love for iSteve?

    Obama knew it would create headlines that would suck in gullible white liberals whose kids are nowhere near these types of schools and would also hopefully fire up blacks to turn out and vote.

    Anyone who has every attended a highly diverse big city public school knows that violence tends to cluster around certain groups more than others, and without some enforcement of discipline the school would turn into a hellhole where students spend most of their time trying not to get dragged into some kind of altercation.

    The teacher cannot win. If he gets the better of the combative student – whether that student be battering another student or even the teacher himself – the teacher is deemed an abusive monster. If the teacher gets the worst of it...well, he risks permanent injury or worse. I don't know what official policies and requirements of the teachers are in these situations. My approach would be to contact someone in another pay-grade compensated to deal with the Catch-22 (the principal, the cops...) and then watch the animals go at it. I suppose if a white child, especially a female, were threatened I might rescue that child, but even then only if I personally knew the child was not one of the self-loathing, traitorous types who outnumber well-adjusted white people (and are a far greater threat to the race than the mud people...).

    There appears to be two contradictory ideas, you know, Orwell’s “doublethink.”

    One idea is that the underfunding of public schools along with the general climate of race hatred results in the public schools doing a bad job closing the achievement gap.

    The other idea is that charter schools, am I to assume they are adequately funded because Gates Foundation or whatever reason and that they create a nurturing environment within their walls not found in the race-hating broader society, that these charter schools fail at closing the achievement gap too? That they only appear to close the achievement gap by “cherry picking” their students?

    So how is it that making every public school a charter school by giving it whatever resources it needs going to close the achievement gap when public schools are not allowed to “cheat” by being selective of students the way charter schools do?

    Supposing for sake of discussion that we adopt the T.D. agenda of abolishing private schools, taxing the rich more, restricting freedom of choice in housing, instituting a Curriculum of Color (what does that entail?), and banning this particular Web site. Those ideas are rather unpopular here, and some of them may run up against the U.S. Constitution, but hey, the Constitution, after all, is a living document and it is not entirely plausible that the T.D. Program becomes the law-of-the-land.

    Then what? Public schools will still be restricted from screening students, so they will perform no better than today’s charter schools, were those schools to be forbidden from screening their students? Where does that leave us?

    Furthermore, the claim that charter schools only “work” because they screen students is a very iSteve-like thing to say. Has T.D. been to the Alt-Right Room 101 and emerged with feelings of love for iSteve?

    Obama knew that Black students were responsible for more violence and mayhem than White students in public schools. Obama just lied and said that public school administrators were punishing Black students at a higher rate than White students.

    Obama knew it would create headlines that would suck in gullible white liberals whose kids are nowhere near these types of schools and would also hopefully fire up blacks to turn out and vote.

    Anyone who has every attended a highly diverse big city public school knows that violence tends to cluster around certain groups more than others, and without some enforcement of discipline the school would turn into a hellhole where students spend most of their time trying not to get dragged into some kind of altercation.

    I have a question. Hopefully this will come early enough that someone will notice it.

    A lot of blacks are way past passing the paper bag test. I have no idea what percentage of white ancestry we are talking about, but it is really high for a lot of them.

    Yet we have the noted fact that elite blacks test lower than whites of lower class.

    There is a mix of genes responsible for intelligence. Surely a lot of lighter skinned blacks must by sheer chance have the same mix of intelligence genes as whites of lower class.

    Yet we have this gap. My question is, is there something in the mix of West African genes that "interferes" with the way in which genes in whites interact to result in intelligence?

    I guess Steve could pull out his collection of "shiny" NAACP officers. But there is something you wouldn't expect going on with this.

    Sometimes I wonder what unethical medical experiments might uncover. What happens if you suppress testosterone levels in blacks to say Asian levels? And you did this while the brain is developing? (Adolescence for sure, and maybe toddlerhood, though I'm not clear on whether pre-adolescents have testerone production.)

    And what about the Ibbos in Africa? They are supposed to be pretty smart. There is a saying in Perl programming, "There's more than one way to do it." Maybe they have a different mix of genes working to result in intelligence than whites do?

    As per a number of articles on iSteve about that Raj Chetty study, whites seem to have phenomenally high upward mobility compared with other groups. This could indicate that even samples of lower class whites would yield average IQs in the 90-95 range.

    At the same time, the African American genome has always included a large number of high yellers and others displaying higher proportions of wine in the mud. In the past, this group may have outperformed the white lower class and even the white middle class. But today, the definition of black elite has become so diluted, as a result of affirmative action and a corporate asset bubble in token negroes (suit wearing, not PCP smoking), that this group’s progeny no longer tests above the white lower class because 1) they are not significantly outperforming the black average and 2) the lower class white average, as we would expect to be the case when such high upward mobility is seen, is higher than what many would otherwise perceive.

    I have no data to back this claim up, just sayin.

    Neither case seems to be a hate crime. The Maryland case, in particular, seems to be revenge for an earlier robbery. Perps in both cases are Hispanic.

    The first case looks like a gaggle of googirrrl super-jihadettes decided they could use the branch rep for the Juarez Cartel as a punchline, not anticipating that they might become batting practice.

    During the search for the missing teen, authorities stopped a motorist “driving suspiciously in the area” and arrested the driver, later identified as identified as Darwin Martinez Torres, 22.

    Charters' main "innovation" is refusing hard-to-teach kids so as to create the illusion of success.

    Public schools are not allowed to do the same.

    Education, like defense, is too important a task to leave to the competition of the market place; we would not even fathom the idea of competing groups of mercenaries to provide our defense. As such, well funded public schools are the only repository upon which a democratic republic should put its faith, its funds and its future.

    We need to tackle the underlying issues of inequitable funding, housing policies, and white supremacy. Only then will Children of Color get access to fair education

    Teachers will soon learn (those who’ve not already) not to become involved in this stuff at all. Hell, even when the police separate combatants or restrain or arrest the belligerent they get persecuted and condemned for their efforts, as though they had accosted Wally Cleaver, an exemplary student minding his own business.

    The teacher cannot win. If he gets the better of the combative student – whether that student be battering another student or even the teacher himself – the teacher is deemed an abusive monster. If the teacher gets the worst of it…well, he risks permanent injury or worse. I don’t know what official policies and requirements of the teachers are in these situations. My approach would be to contact someone in another pay-grade compensated to deal with the Catch-22 (the principal, the cops…) and then watch the animals go at it. I suppose if a white child, especially a female, were threatened I might rescue that child, but even then only if I personally knew the child was not one of the self-loathing, traitorous types who outnumber well-adjusted white people (and are a far greater threat to the race than the mud people…).

    I left the Lib integrated Chicago neighborhood to go to college at a traditional Southern University Vanderbilt in 1980. Vanderbilt, like Duke is no longer a traditional Southern University – the Vanderbilt Chancellor is a former Lib Law School professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison.

    But, when I was at Vanderbilt in the early 80s, the women’s dorms used to have shout out alerts that “There’s a man on the hall” – a warming to the girls to be careful.

    Now the situation has been reversed, a woman on a young men’s residents hall is dangerous. I strongly suggest our college men not try to date or ever have sex with a women who’s at the college. Instead, date a hair dresser – more fun.

    Don't forget the Black female students when you think of Blacks behaving badly in schools. This video shows 4 rather beefy Black ladies at Cheltenham High School acting in a vigorously combative manner. A White lady teacher can be seen absorbing the horrible battering of a beefy Black upper arm or elbow, which renders the nice White lady teacher unconscious:

    Obama knew that Black students were responsible for more violence and mayhem than White students in public schools. Obama just lied and said that public school administrators were punishing Black students at a higher rate than White students.

    Hate to say it, that sounded like chimpanzee screeches.

    What was Obama supposed to do,” … Not be so aloof, make a genuine attempt, show some compassion, go through China, all of the above???? Instead he cared about stupid shit, some of which is referred to in this post.
     
    Give President Bizarro a break, man. He was too busy securing the release of Beau Bergdahl. He was too busy writing a commutation for "Chelsea" Manning. He was too busy deciding which Middle Eastern strongman who had completely knuckled-under to recent US pressure needed overthrowing ("I will not have any allies that would have me as their patron") . He had his women's NCAA tourney brackets to fill out. Every night at least 1 hour was taken calling all the Ivy League African American Studies Dept. heads and making sure they had made it home all right. He was practicing the big SAT word he had hand-picked to close-out his Presidency with ("Traduce. TRA-duce.") He was practicing drawing red lines with invisible ink.

    In the end, he could implore America, “Hey man, I didn’t build that. Somebody else did.”

    I have a question. Hopefully this will come early enough that someone will notice it.

    A lot of blacks are way past passing the paper bag test. I have no idea what percentage of white ancestry we are talking about, but it is really high for a lot of them.

    Yet we have the noted fact that elite blacks test lower than whites of lower class.

    There is a mix of genes responsible for intelligence. Surely a lot of lighter skinned blacks must by sheer chance have the same mix of intelligence genes as whites of lower class.

    Yet we have this gap. My question is, is there something in the mix of West African genes that "interferes" with the way in which genes in whites interact to result in intelligence?

    I guess Steve could pull out his collection of "shiny" NAACP officers. But there is something you wouldn't expect going on with this.

    Sometimes I wonder what unethical medical experiments might uncover. What happens if you suppress testosterone levels in blacks to say Asian levels? And you did this while the brain is developing? (Adolescence for sure, and maybe toddlerhood, though I'm not clear on whether pre-adolescents have testerone production.)

    And what about the Ibbos in Africa? They are supposed to be pretty smart. There is a saying in Perl programming, "There's more than one way to do it." Maybe they have a different mix of genes working to result in intelligence than whites do?

    And what about the Ibbos in Africa?

    You mean Ibos aka Igbos aka Biafrans.

    Give me a break.

    The world isn't child-proofed. Flying kites near power lines may kill you. So may entering the tiger enclosure or free solo rock climbing. Visiting North Korea might, too. No adult thrill-seeker who dies doing this deserves a shred of sympathy.

    It's amazing to read your comment alongside those speculating about the lack of frontal-lobe development in AAs.

    Why thank you.

    “Negro frontal lobe less developed” as a Google search gives you links that probably get the police deployed to your house in the UK if you dare click on one.

    People confuse morality between different levels of individual and group.
    Justice exists between two individuals.
    Once you lump people into female vs. male, brown vs. pink, gay vs. straight, then you are beyond the scope of human justice. We don’t have the wisdom or the power to judge between groups, or create some imaginary “equality”.
    All identity politics and grievance-mongering leads to attempted “solutions” which only make things worse.

    Keep dreaming. We're talking about a country where a harmless fuddy old liberal like Murray can't even deliver a speech on a college campus without fearing for his life. All because he's only 99 % kosher with the official narrative on race and society, and not all the way. What good were are all those guns?
    Don't deceive yourself, Americans will sheepishly surrender their guns when confiscation time comes around, as it inevitably will, just like Australians did, in exchange for a six-pack of beer.
