First let me say, I don't think any KKK organization is interested in destroying black people. I think the KKK as a general classification of people firmly believes black people naturally do enough harm to destroy themselves. The KKK point of view is celebrating the value of segregation and isolation of whites from blacks, which from reading Walter Williams's column, is not a bad idea. Unfortunately along with segregation, black people hurt themselves, so there is a humane downside to segregation. When black people finally decide they have had enough of the "black culture" and can quit blaming white people for their problems, improvement is possible. Meanwhile, like it or not, segregation is an attractive and meaningful alternative.

I know making reference to the "Klan" is a generalization. But, there are good people who believe racial segregation is beneficial to white people, with good examples to support their point of view. If Dr. Williams would address that one narrow subject, from the white point of view is racial segregation beneficial or detrimental, he might again illuminate the fact that black people are their own worse enemy. I know if I was consistently doing something that netted me bad results, I would consider stopping it. Black violence in schools is something only the black community can correct, and being integrated with white students only makes the solution more difficult to facilitate.

I was at a wine tasting today where thousands of people gathered and had fun. Many were black people. They posed no threat and obviously were fun to be with. Then why is Dr. Williams's account of violence in schools so different? The reason has to do with acceptable behavior and consequences. I know if I was violent in school my father in particular would have crushed me like a bug and demanded my behavior change. In many black families there is no father and never was, ergo no consequences to violent behavior until the law steps into the picture. There are consequences to violent behavior in schools, but the black community seems to refuse to appreciate the situation. You don't need more government support, you need more fathers!
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...
