I'm a college teacher. Many years ago, I had several black students insinuate I was racist for requiring them to be on time for activities and meetings. Their rationale: "You need to know that we operate on 'black people's time.'" In other words, being late was part of their "culture," and I was being insensitive for not allowing for that. When they didn't show up for a field trip on time, I left without them. It was amazing... they were on time for future field trips! You do not make excuses for bad behaviors or attitudes.

WE have created this situation. WE have given these malcontents the ammunition to behave in such ludicrous ways because WE allowed the radical marxist liberals to seed and water this attitude by our own silence. WE knew the cost of these errors, yet WE were too afraid to be labeled a racist. Now, the chickens have come home to roost. Now WE have an uphill battle on our hands.

We my butt. I have always required both respect and discipline in my kids all 6 and not one has had any serious interaction with the police. The obomination we now live in is the result of far too many years of letting these type of idiots run our schools. Our founding documents clearly state ALL men are created equal but our out of control government has created (special) rights for selected classes of people gay's, blacks, foreign criminals that are above everyone else. Our corrupt leaders would rather let America DIE than to loose any of their precious power.
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...
