cont. murdering black citizens. 6. You wouldn't have elected officials NOT being held responsible for their crimes. Current example..............you wouldn't have the media making excuses for Obama's abject failure as President at every turn. The "Rule of Law" fails when excuses become more important than behavior done. Education fails when it DOES NOT insist that students learn to behave in such a way as will be expected when kids become adults. But then the Left never seems to want ANYBODY to be responsible for themselves and their behavioral choices.

Agreed, Arley2.

On children learning to behave in public: My husband and I were at a restaurant recently. Two children were running in circles around the dining area and screaming. I looked at my husband and asked when the heck they would come up with a non-children section. His response: "Yeah, I wonder what would happen if I acted like that?" We both knew, of course, that we'd be asked to leave. So why weren't the parents told to contain their children or leave?
If I were a Klansman, wanting to sabotage black education, I couldn't find better allies than education establishment liberals and officials in the Obama administration, especially Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who in March 2010 announced that his department was "going to reinvigorate civil rights enforcement."

For Duncan, the civil rights issue was that black elementary and high school students are disciplined at a higher rate than whites. His evidence for discrimination is that blacks are three and a half times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers. Duncan and his Obama administration supporters conveniently...
