President Mein Obama visits Memphis: Will he propose the Michael Oher Act?

We have long been a proponent of instituting the Michael Oher Act (MOA) across the nation. Actually, we here at SBPDL originated the idea for the MOA and believe that it is the only action left that could bridge the racial chasm in learning that continues to widen.
Memphis is a failed (Black) city
 
Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy plucked Michael Oher from the mean streets of Memphis. The current Baltimore Ravens left tackle, the object of uncontrolled admiration by white conservatives across the nation, would never have escaped Memphis were it not for his adoption by white people from the white suburbs.

 
That his birth mother abandoned him and a brood of 11 other children for a life of drug addiction drugs is an afterthought in the movie The Blind Side; that a loving white family took him into their home and gave him countless hours of tutoring so that he could attend college (where he received countless more hours of tutoring) is the real story.
 
Memphis is a Black city long ago abandoned by white people. Crime, decadence, murder, rape, and schools that under-perform are the reality that is Memphis. Even Black people of means are abandoning Memphis for the suburbs:
Crime already had grown scary enough in their Raleigh neighborhood, so when drug dealers brazenly opened shop down the street, Thelmon and Barbara Butler got in their car and went for a drive.
They headed east, scouting subdivisions with rustic-sounding names and mazelike cul-de-sacs for a new place to live.
"We drove from street to street," said Thelmon Butler, 57, pastor of a church in Southeast Shelby County. "We went everywhere."
They ended up in a three-bedroom brick home off Macon and Houston Levee, on a street that at the time had only one other African-American household.
Now, six years later, the Butlers are among dozens of black families in the Cordova Ridge planned development. They're representative of a major demographic trend documented in census data released last month.
Although "white flight" was the Memphis area's dominant population pattern in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, the first decade of the 21st century witnessed a wave of "black flight" that made many suburban areas more diverse than many older parts of the city, including Midtown.
An analysis of statistics from the Census Bureau's latest American Community Survey data shows that in 66 suburban census tracts in Shelby County, the estimated number of black residents has increased 56 percent, from 83,019 in 2000 to 129,443 in 2010.
African-Americans now account for fully one-third of all residents in the tracts, up from less than one-quarter a decade ago.
Though few will admit it, the sad, simple truth is that crime will inevitably follow these Black refugees from decaying Memphis to their new environs as surely as night follows day. The Atlantic noticed this in its cover-story published a few short years ago:
On September 27, 2007, a headline in The Commercial Appeal, the city’s biggest newspaper, announced a dubious honor: “Memphis Leads U.S. in Violent Crime.” Local precincts had been seeing their internal numbers for homicide, rape, aggravated assault, and robbery tick up since the late 1990s, starting around the time Barnes saw the first dead car. By 2005, a criminologist closely tracking those numbers was describing the pattern as a crime explosion. In May of 2007, a woman from upscale Chickasaw Gardens was raped by two men, at gunpoint; the assailants had followed her and her son home one afternoon. Outraged residents formed Citizens Against Crime and lobbied the statehouse for tougher gun laws. “People are concerned for their lives, frankly,” said one county commissioner, summarizing the city’s mood. This March, a man murdered six people, including two young children, in a house a few miles south of Old Allen Station.

Falling crime rates have been one of the great American success stories of the past 15 years. New York and Los Angeles, once the twin capitals of violent crime, have calmed down significantly, as have most other big cities. Criminologists still debate why: the crack war petered out, new policing tactics worked, the economy improved for a long spell. Whatever the alchemy, crime in New York, for instance, is now so low that local prison guards are worried about unemployment.

Lately, though, a new and unexpected pattern has emerged, taking criminologists by surprise. While crime rates in large cities stayed flat, homicide rates in many midsize cities (with populations of between 500,000 and 1 million) began increasing, sometimes by as much as 20percent a year. In 2006, the Police Executive Research Forum, a national police group surveying cities from coast to coast, concluded in a report called “A Gathering Storm” that this might represent “the front end … of an epidemic of violence not seen for years.” The leaders of the group, which is made up of police chiefs and sheriffs, theorized about what might be spurring the latest crime wave: the spread of gangs, the masses of offenders coming out of prison, methamphetamines. But mostly they puzzled over the bleak new landscape. According to FBI data, America’s most dangerous spots are now places where Martin Scorsese would never think of staging a shoot-out—Florence, South Carolina; Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Reading, Pennsylvania; Orlando, Florida; Memphis, Tennessee.
The salient point to take away upon digesting this article is that crime is sure to increase wherever Black people go. Conversely, wherever Black people are, crime is sure to be. And horrible schools. Perhaps it is fate that today President Mein Obama will address the Black denizens of Memphis by speaking to the graduating seniors of Booker T. Washington High School (where 98 percent of students get their lunches free):
President Obama will deliver the commencement address at Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis, the White House announced Tuesday.

The school edged out hundreds of applicants in the Race to the Top Commencement Competition, an annual contest aligned with the president’s education initiative that rewards schools for “promoting college and career readiness.” The graduation ceremony is May 16, according to the White House.

“Booker T. Washington High School proves what can be accomplished when students, teachers, parents and administrators come together to support achievement in the classroom, and I’m looking forward to delivering the commencement address at this extraordinary school soon,” Mr. Obama said in a statement.

According to the White House, the school’s graduation rate rose to 81.6 percent in 2010 from 55 percent three years earlier. Along the way, the school added separate “academies” for male and female freshmen as well as A.P. classes.

Virtually all of Booker T. Washington’s students are African-American, and 98 percent are eligible for free or reduced lunch, said Quintin Taylor, the spokesman for Memphis City Schools. When the city razed the nearby Cleaborn Homes housing project last month, citing crime and blight, 20 percent of the students lost their homes and were scattered around the city. That fact is highlighted in a video submitted by the school for the competition.

“The community that they’re in, there’s poverty and there’s crime. It’s an inner-city American neighborhood,” Mr. Taylor said. ”Despite the circumstances and surroundings, they have been able to achieve at a high level.”
How in the world did this school system raise its graduation rate from 55 percent to 81.6 percent? How about with a $90 million donation from The Gates Foundation and a significant share of the $501 million over four years from the federal government?:
Wilson, with a GPA of 4.8, graduates about 18 months after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded the city schools $90 million for improving teacher effectiveness and just more than a year after Tennessee won $501 million over four years in the federal Race to the Top competition.
"BTW is easily the poster child for reform efforts that take a few years to get firmly rooted and then bear fruit," said John Barker, head of research and evaluation for Memphis City Schools.
Among the reform efforts: improving the quality of who gets hired to teach and be principals in MCS, and then placing those people where they can do the most good.
The system has also been casting a wider net for new teachers, doubling the number of Teach for America positions and hiring earlier in the season to increase the chances of getting the most talented prospects.
It is offering incentives to faculty and staff at schools that meet graduation, test score and teacher-retention goals.
In high priority schools such as BTW, principals can get $4,000 per year for meeting recruitment and retention goals, plus payoffs for student achievement.
Principal Alisha Kiner received $5,750 in bonuses this year for gains Wilson says helped her.
The biggest benefit was "the chance to take Advanced Placement courses."
"They really do boost your academics up. ... It really does make a difference," Wilson said.
Students that pass the five-point final exam with a 3 or more typically get college credit.
Three years ago, BTW had one AP class. Today it has three, and Wilson took them all.
Since 2008, when Supt. Kriner Cash arrived, MCS has added 60 AP sections, beefing up offerings in schools such as BTW and Hamilton High where there had been few if any AP choices.
Let’s be honest.  In a year, we’ll learn that much of what was touted as academic progress in Memphis was largely grade inflation and fraud, just like what happened in Atlanta's and Washington D.C.’s school system. Newsweek did a big story just two weeks ago (Back to School for Billionaires) that showed all of the money invested by people like Bill Gates and other billionaires had done absolutely nothing to improve test scores.
 
Only cheating – like that done in Atlanta and Washington D.C – can show improvements that no amount of money or nurturing can hope to see overcome the menacing reality of nature.
 
Memphis is no different. It’s good to see Booker T. Washington High School get AP classes, but we know that Black students perform poorly on AP exams when compared to their white, Asian or Hispanic counterparts. In many parts of the country, talks are underway to remove these classes.
 
Here you can find an article that delineates the troubling failure rate of Tennessee students on AP exams and the high cost to the city of Memphis for fielding an AP classes.
 
Worse, these programs cost money, and Memphis City Schools is insolvent (despite that cash infusion from the Gates Foundation and Race to the Top Program). Recently voting to dissolve their own school district in order to force a merger with the predominately white Shelby County School Districts (white people having long ago fled Memphis to the areas surrounding the city so their children could be educated around only white students), those in charge of the Memphis City Schools system admit to being an abject failure and a lesson of what happens when Black people take over (just like Birmingham, Baltimore, DC and Atlanta).
 
Tensions in Memphis are hot right now over this decision, because white people who work for Federal Express, International Paper and other Fortune 500 companies based in Memphis pay good money to live far away from the rot that is Black Memphis. Insulating their families in suburban white cities is no longer enough to keep the Black Undertow at bay.
 
Memphis is a Black city. It is a failing city. No, that's not true. It is a failed city.
 
Yet President Obama’s visit to Booker T. Washington today will be regarded as a fairy tale moment for the city's Black inhabitants, as this article makes clear:
In explaining why Booker T. Washington High School won the Race To The Top challenge to earn its commencement speech Monday from President Barack Obama, the White House cited statistics of various school achievements.
But anyone who watched the videos submitted by finalists could see elements in BTW's entry that numbers cannot measure -- passion, motivation and, quite clearly, an enthusiasm for Obama.
When Obama comes to Memphis, the moment will take on a meaning even larger than that usually associated with a presidential visit.
The nation's first black president will be visiting, for the first time since his 2008 election, one of the most important cities for African-American culture, achievement and history -- and engaging a high school with its own historic and symbolic significance for the city.
Rev. Noel Hutchinson is the big, wryly funny pastor of First Baptist Church-Lauderdale, which sits catty-corner from the high school and where, photos indicate, some of BTW's first graduations were held. His job is to help people see, as his church bulletin for today puts it, "what God can do."
But this week's "marvelous reality" is such that, Hutchinson says, it "boggles the mind."
"As the first black president, he symbolically represents all the hopes and dreams many of us as a people have for ourselves," Hutchinson said. "He embodies great success and the great symbolism of one who came up through many challenges to become the president of the United States. And now he is coming to a neighborhood in one of the poorest  ZIP codes in Memphis that in recent years has been been consistently overlooked.
"That in and of itself will do great things to shape self esteem for generations to come."
To understand Obama's popularity in neighborhoods like BTW's, consider the voting in the 2008 election contest with Arizona Sen. John McCain. There were 1,077 votes cast for president at the nearest precinct, Georgia Avenue Elementary -- all but four for Obama.
In all, there were 15 precincts in the city of Memphis where Obama received 99 percent or more of the votes, and 115 precincts that gave him at least 90 percent of the vote. And while the city in general and black voters in particular traditionally vote for Democratic candidates, the support for Obama was of another order of magnitude -- he carried Shelby County by 110,412 votes, or about 52,000 more than Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry's margin here in 2004.
"He is coming into a community that is proud of his achievements and appreciative of his hard work," Hutchinson said.
U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen said polling of Memphis voters has shown one unerring consistency -- Obama receives 90-plus percent approval ratings among African-American voters.
"He's an iconic figure in American history and an iconic figure in the African-American community," said Cohen, who often refers to the Obama family as the "Kennedys" of the 21st century. "His popularity is unsurpassed."
In Shelby County, 42 percent of Black people are on EBT Food stamps compared to 6 percent of whites. The area President Obama will visit has an average annual income of less than $11,000, one of the highest crime rates in the nation, and most of the citizens rely on federal assistance for housing.
Oh, and don't forget what we already mentioned: 98 percent of students at Booker T. Washington get free lunches.

 
Memphis City Schools have failed, capitulated in hopes of merging with the white school system of Shelby County. The school system has a $100 million gap it must close.

But Mein Obama rushes to Memphis for a photo op with Black students who rely on donations from billionaires and tax payer money to subsist.. The Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) in the media will probably cry over this wonderful moment, and African spirituals will be belted out by Black people in choir robes and every Black person whose name is called to receive a diploma will have their extended family yell loudly in appreciation for this historic moment.

But Those Who Can See will know the truth. Each moment that passes brings us inevitably closer to the collapse of Black-Run America (BRA), an eventuality that will play itself out regardless of what you do.

“If we don’t act now, there might not be much of an America left to defend,” said the Secretary of Defense in Independence Day, after the alien invaders destroyed more American cities..

Those Who Can See don’t have to act, nor will alien invaders have to destroy major American cities. It’s becoming increasingly clear that Detroit, Batimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis and dozens if not hundreds of other cities have been destroyed by a population that still supports Mein Obama with 90 percent approval ratings.

Oddly, the male population of that same voting group is nearly 50 percent unemployed.

It’s going to be a long summer.

So enjoy the photo op in Memphis, Mein Obama. We're sure you'll give an outstanding speech that MSNBC, CNN and other news outlets will declare magnificent, moving and ground-breaking.

But Those Who Can See know the truth. Those Who Can See look upon Memphis and realize its morose state is just a reflection of nature. The Tuohys invested millions - even forsook their own kids - to help Michael Oher succeed and ultimately play for a sub-par Ole Miss football team (or, as we might more aptly call the school that so easily gave up many of its traditions, the University of Northern Mississippi football team).

It's our hope President Obama devoted some of his speech to mentioning The Michael Oher Act, the one piece of legislation left that could improve the conditions of future Black communities. If not, his speech will have been in vain.

Old White Jim said...

Whenever the subject of educating Blacks comes up, I always think back to a short interview I saw years ago on the evening news. It happened during a huge meeting of teachers that was organized to oppose proposed legislation that would require the testing of teachers to make sure they were sufficiently familiar with the subjects they were being paid to teach.

One lucky reporter got the grand prize in the form of an ebony 300+ pound KFC Queen. When asked what she did in class, the corpulent semi-human happily kicked those great big lips into gear and, "Ah teaches English!", came blubbering out.

How did that one get past the gatekeepers? It's quite simple.

The capacity to ignore the obvious and imagine that members of the Negroid subspecies can ever become the social and political equal of White humans is the downside of the ability of abstract thinking. Only White people of European descent seem to be cursed with that blessing.

Only intelligent White people are capable of believing that when our American founding fathers declared that it is self-evident that all men were created equal, that they were including the Negro slaves who were little more than livestock at the time.

I am happy to report from personal experience that mother nature has equipped us with an circuit breaker that turns off our delusional thinking when it is truly necessary. As you will likely learn firsthand in the near future, when White folks are slipping around in blood and gore we turn as stupid and base as the darker races are on a normal day.

That is a reality that can be neither ignored nor altered.

Greetings:

I remember several (many?) years ago watching a news broadcast on television about the improvement in reading skills by students at a Memphis school.

The video showed grotesque looking Negresses teaching the Negro children, and whenever the teachers spoke, they exhibited the usual poor pronunciation and bad grammar, living down to the worst stereotypes of their race.

(Am I allowed to say "Negro" and "Negress"?

When I was young, it was considered polite, and I refuse to ever refer to them with the misnomer of "African-American".)

With the poor example being set by those teachers, those children had no chance of success in later life.

Yet, the news media actually applauded this!

Thank you.

Thelmon and Barbara Butler are aging blacks who stay employed and never caused many problems themselves. Blacks like them move to white neighborhoods to get away from crime...but here's what happens next: one of their adult daughters go to prison for running down a cop or shooting her pimp. Then the kindly old folks take in their 3 parent-less grand kids De'Vontavious, Lashatisha, and Tarique.

Suddenly the neighborhood fills with petty crimes and vandalism, and the kindly old black couple can't figure out why...but dem racist cops be accusin' De'Vontavious and Tarique! Dem good boys, dey din't do nuffin! Lashatisha shits out 3 kids by age 19, her two "aspiring rapper" brothers sire an army of bastards themselves and all their baby-mammas and baby-daddies move to the neighborhood to "get a fresh start". Next comes armed robberies, drug dealing, drive-by shootings.

Then the kindly old black folks can't figure out why their new neighborhood is now as bad as their old neighborhood. And it goes on and on and on. The Black Plague continues to pursue Whitey further and further into the suburbs, leaving burned out ghettos in their wake.

Well, maybe instead of moving to he next town or county, they should move about 100 miles away from where the blacks are.

I can attest to how god awful Orlando is. I've never seen a place turn to crap as fast as O-town has the last decade or so. The blacks are of course, horrible, but so are the Puertoricans. At least Miami's Spanish speakers are mostly white Cubans. The 'ricans just emulate black gangbangers. The last time I was in Orlando it just felt ominous, like something was about to pop off at any time.

And now he is coming to a neighborhood in one of the poorest ZIP codes in Memphis that in recent years has been been consistently overlooked.

If $100 million + in donations is "consistently overlooked," I hope I get overlooked someday! The entire "they're ignored and underprivileged" gruel is by now so thin it's transparent.

While I'm inclined to get into an intellectual debate over this one, the reality is that it isn't required for such blatant racism and classism. The fact of the matter is that the city and urban schools throughout the country aren't given the funding needed to improve education and test scores simply because they are afraid of what we'd do with the education and what media seems to continuously stir within the public about fears of Black people uprising if given the education when in reality, it wouldn't be as much as an uprising as much as it would be a unification and solidarity that the community has long been missing.

I've seen numerous sets of figures that lead me to believe that-contrary to your assertion-"urban" schools receive more funding per pupil than suburban schools receive. But let that go for a moment. I want to bring up a scenario that's been brought up here before.

Let's just assume that this hypothetical unification of the community takes place. Assume a bit farther,and this community manages to take over. Your community uprises in solidarity and while I'm not sure what would define "winning",let's say that "The Community" wins. What happens after that?

For purposes of argument,assume that us roundeyes just up and give you the old Confederacy. So you've won some territory,and-again,for purposes of discssion-your community gets recognized by the U.N. as independent and all that good stuff.

What will you do next?

Can your community fix potholes in the streets,or keep the storm drainage systems unclogged so you don't drown every time it rains?

Can your community maintain and direct power generation and distribution systems,and water distribution systems so that electricity and running water still flow in their designated channels? Can you maintain sewage systems,in order that contagion might be contained? If you can't now,then you better learn,and learn fast...

And what are you going to produce for purposes of trade with the rest of the world? That's a serious question-you might be able to make everything you need,but there's going to be other things that you want,and don't make yourself,and for that stuff,you're going to have to trade. "Trade" means exactly that. You have to have something to swap back and forth,and I'd be interested in learning your plans on that issue.

I'll check back later to see if you have any answers.

Pertinent points anon @ 6:26.

You see, as much as the black race likes to gripe about their lot in life, they never do anything to improve it.

Shallow platitudes of community, dreams, etc, will never do where the rubber hits the road. Real world problems are just that real world, not some imaginary dream land in Nubia.

Community is a code word for black cohesiveness, which is fine, but will it work?

It probably could work, but it won't because the blacks are resentful, loathing, spiteful and want to keep blaming whites for most of their self-inflicted problems.

Until they resolve these most basic issues nothing will change. Time to step up to the plate black folks.

Midwestern said...

"I'll check back later to see if you have any answers."

This is a great scenario, Ex Gladio, and I look forward to the reply from this anonymous liberal poster.

More money and effort is spent on "urban" and inner city schools than any others. Not just books and world class amenities, but private tutoring, "project" and "magnet" school programs, welfare programs for families (our local project school has a summer feeding program for blacks and hispanics and their families), free breakfast and lunch, police and security presence and equipment, white flight, and many other costs.

White private schools have the lowest educational spending of all. I home-school my own 3 kids, they are excelling on less than $500 per year total and they all test beyond grade level. Success is a combination of ability and drive. The majority of blacks are deficient in both.

It is not the schools, the buildings, the teachers, or the curriculum. It is the students strapped into black culture who can not learn. Black culture teaches black pride, dependence on the government, victimology and anti-intellectualism. Smart black kids are doomed to failure and eaten alive by black culture. Excelling in school is considered "acting white" and selling out. My opinions are only based on personal experience.

Liar.

Several News articles have studied funding in schools and found nothing "racist" in fundng. Black schools are found to get even more money that White schools (Washington D.C. for example) with no increase in test scores. Negro behavior continues to be just above animals, requiring the schools to install metal detectors, etc. This does not stop flash mobs from robbing local 7/11's or prevent the attacks on Whites and Asians in school or Teachers in general. Niglets are DANGEROUS.

Whites on the other hand often don't get ANY funding for their children, by taking the simple step of Home Schooling. Why do people who teach their children at home without "funding" do so well? Because they pulled their children out of a racial hatefest called the public school system.

The lie that negros are "discriminated against" in school funding (or ANY funding!) is a joke now long stale. Negros consume MOST of the public service funding in this country, or any country where they exist. That debate is long over, get new parts for your head.

Stuff Black People Don't Like said...

Black students get more funding then white pupils. Hell, Memphis got $90 million from Bill Gates in an effort to close the racial gap in learning. Did you not read the Newsweek piece linked above?

How about the study by Heritage's Jason Richwine which debunked the myth of racial disparity in funding of our nation schools?

http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/019176.html

I challenged a friend today to do a story on the monetary damage of the tornado in Tuscaloosa as opposed to the monetary damage the Black population of Tuscaloosa costs that city each year.

Knowing him, he'll crunch the numbers and show the monetary damage Blacks cost the entire state of Alabama (Birmingham and Montgomery have been abandoned by whites; it didn't take a natural disaster for that to happen, just a plethora of Black people).

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2011/05/tuscaloosa_tornado_devastation.html

One of the constant themes of this site is that collegiate and professional sports are the primary reason that Black criminality and Black reliance on government subsidies (EBT cards, TANF Welfare users, Section 8 Housing, free lunches at school, etc.) are tolerated.

Whites have been conditioned to believe that Black people are superior at basketball and football and since most white people exist to be entertained, they have no problem abandoning major cities for white suburbs - so they don't have to live near Black people - but, paradoxically, they enjoy spending vast amounts of money following nearly all-Black sporting teams.

You're right Midwestern.

"White private schools have the lowest educational spending of all"

I send my children to a private Catholic school that costs around 4,000 per student a semester, to attend. This school is constantly doing fundraisers of one kind or another to sustain the school. They receive no government help (thankfully). The fund raising becomes maddening at times, but I understand why they have to do it.

4,000 per pupil just for tuition, not including food, is expensive for me, but it's worth it to see them get a better education.

I resent the fact that I can't get a tax break/voucher for sending them there. Paying taxes to the local schools and paying again to private is almost bankrupting me.

Discard said...

I used to teach mostly Mexican kids at a Catholic school. The cost per pupil was $3600 per year, including money from the Archdiocese. The principal was a hard line nun, 70 years old. She kept the kids in line or kicked them out, and the smart parents backed her. It's the people, not the money that make a good school. "Insufficient funding" is a euphemism for stupid, lazy, and violent.

Sheila said...

Dissident - I, too, send my kids to a private, Christian school (slightly more expensive than your Catholic one, but a good deal cheaper than many other private schools in this area) and this is causing our family a good deal of financial stress. Even as we note that we really can't afford it, my husband and I agree that neither can we afford not to ensure our boys are well-educated at a somewhat more American environment than the public schools we are forced to pay taxes to support.

We've lived (and paid school taxes) here for 17 years; we've used a total of 4 years of public schooling. The rest of the time we've paid, out of pocket, for private Christian preschools, elementary schools, and middle schools, not to mention various private enrichment activities. There are taxpayer-supported preschools for non-English speaking kids. My older kid couldn't continue his Latin studies in high school because it was dropped in favor of Chinese (and I think one DWL enrolled; all the rest were native Chinese speakers). And all the while, the Indian, Asian, black, and Hispanic population keeps expanding, as Whites move farther and farther away from the cities seeking unenriched suburbs in which to establish new, "good" public schools, until the cycle begins again.

I truly wonder when/if Whites will wake up and, realizing there is nowhere left to run, finally make a stand to defend their families, race, culture, and nation.

There is a term for parents who send their kids to diverse, multicultural public schools. That term is CHILD ABUSER. If you send your little white kids to be prey for D'shawn and Loqueesha, you are a child abuser. YES, I MEAN YOU.

Don't tell me you can't afford it. You can afford anything you want to. If you really love your kids you will do what you have to do -- sell your car, walk to work, live in your parents' garage, eat rice every day -- to put them in a school where they can learn without living in fear of Section 8.

My children attend private, parochial schools as well. It costs me a fortune, but it's worth every penny. Sure, it would be nice if I could get a voucher to pay for it, making it "free" like pu6ik 5ku3l, but as long as we have voting and freedom of the press that isn't going to happen. So I pay, we do without, and they get to grow up in a peaceful and educational environment.

The only solution (barring resegregation, or the end of public schools altogether) is for white people to move to a community and then neglect to build any public schools at all. As long as public schools exist, Section 8 will find them and destroy them.

But if there ARE no public schools in a given community... if ALL schools are private and take no government money...

While I'm inclined to get into an intellectual debate over this one, the reality is that it isn't required for such blatant racism and classism. The fact of the matter is that the city and urban schools throughout the country aren't given the funding needed to improve education and test scores simply because they are afraid of what we'd do with the education and what media seems to continuously stir within the public about fears of Black people uprising if given the education when in reality, it wouldn't be as much as an uprising as much as it would be a unification and solidarity that the community has long been missing.

Not quite. Schools in DC spend about double what schools in Iowa spend per student. Who do you think has the higher scores?

The big problem with black school systems is that they are run by largely black school boards. Black administrators love to line their pockets. I've seen a youtube video of the Detroit school board building, it looked like a mall. Every car was either a Mercedes or a Cadillac Escalade. If there is a real funding discrepancy between black and white school systems, that is the reason.

This story tells you everything you need to know about Black school boards.

"...within the public about fears of Black people uprising if given the education "

What a huge load of BS. You are delusional. Black victimologists and their white liberal handlers have been using this excuse for black dysfunction and failure for DECADES, and we are not buying it.

Blacks are not shut out, left out, overlooked, underserved, or anything similar. Blacks are shacked to failure by their own genetic limitations and their own black culture. Blacks have been taught that whites just love them, and will do anything to help them succeed. Not true. Blacks are not able to function and be "educated" by American standards, that explains the widening racial gap.

The only uprising that might happen are a series of black riots in the cities when the EBT card stops working (credit to Occidental D, for this concept...). There will be no intellectual uprising in the black community. Only killing, fire, and looting.

We are not afraid of the blacks. Never have been. Most whites pander to blacks in order to not be called a racist, but whites are starting to understand how this all works. This country is not third world Africa, it is a western European nation. It will always be the white man's homeland. If you don't like it here, please move back to your homeland.

Even if we entertain your fantasy aobut blacks becoming a majority in America, which they won't, a white minority will still rule, just as they do now. Oh yes, and your Obama is only a pawn, just like all of the other black politicians and so called "leaders".

Thelmon and Barbara Butler are aging blacks who stay employed and never caused many problems themselves. Blacks like them move to white neighborhoods to get away from crime...but here's what happens next: one of their adult daughters go to prison for running down a cop or shooting her pimp. Then the kindly old folks take in their 3 parent-less grand kids De'Vontavious, Lashatisha, and Tarique.

Suddenly the neighborhood fills with petty crimes and vandalism, and the kindly old black couple can't figure out why...but dem racist cops be accusin' De'Vontavious and Tarique! Dem good boys, dey din't do nuffin! Lashatisha shits out 3 kids by age 19, her two "aspiring rapper" brothers sire an army of bastards themselves and all their baby-mammas and baby-daddies move to the neighborhood to "get a fresh start". Next comes armed robberies, drug dealing, drive-by shootings.

Then the kindly old black folks can't figure out why their new neighborhood is now as bad as their old neighborhood. And it goes on and on and on. The Black Plague continues to pursue Whitey further and further into the suburbs, leaving burned out ghettos in their wake.

Man, that about says it all. Left to their own devices, how long would it have taken black folks to invent the wheel? How long till they invented the steam engine? How long till they invented the internal combustion engine? How long till they invented flying machines? How long till they invented computers, cell phones, GPS units, etc. etc. etc.???

I'll tell you - NEVER. NEVER EVER. Black folks should have the common decency to be thankful for the privilege of living amongst whites and have the good common sense to learn from them and act like them.

Not going to happen.

Actually, that is 100% false. Repeating a lie does not change the truth.

Astronomical spending on black students has failed to improve test scores.

Gotta see this. Liberalism is a form of insanity. For the Anon moron who suggested earlier that we spend less on blacks in schools...

"Taxpayer money is used to operate charter schools--the DOE pays about $13,500 per student a year. Harlem Children's Zone shells out another $3,000 per kid from its private endowment for the longer day and year, Lipp said. It has a partnership with Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and the Children's Health Fund to staff the clinic. And it raises donations for extras like the after-school program and its "Baby College" parenting classes."

Most white people have NO IDEA how blacks really live. I don't blame whites for running like hell from blacks, but it is easy become hardened to the reality of the situation when you don't see it for yourself. The level of dysfunction at which blacks exist is shocking to the system. Compared to white culture and attitudes, blacks exist as an entirely different species.

For several years now I have lived quite near to poor and middle-income blacks in an old neighborhood, and I can say with confidence that blacks are completely delusional about the dysfunction in their own culture, and the extremely negative perception of them by the majority of whites. They do not know how the real world works, are only able to mimic white behavior to a degree for acceptance, and actually believe that they are still physically enslaved by whites. We can do nothing more to remedy this mental illness. Someone posted a link to the show "Hard Core Pawn" and I highly recommend that you watch a few episodes to get the true picture:

http://www.trutv.com/video/hardcore-pawn/full-episodes/index.html

I hear time and time again from blacks that "someone needs to DO something 'bout all this violence!" and "our young men are dying in the streets and no one cares..." and "we need another drive by prayer session!" and this goes on and on. Blacks only sit around and complain about their self-inflicted poverty and claim zero responsibility for the damage they do to their own communities. Low IQ + zero motivation + criminality + victimology = a deadly combination. They are the richest poor people on the planet, cell phones, gambling, takeout food, designer clothing, cable TV and air conditioning. It is a pitiful shame that we let this happen to our country. Is this who we are??

We really should stop this endless dialogue of how to uplift the negro race. It is not our job to do this.

Who really cares anymore what the precious black people like or don't like? I feel sickened every time I read something new added to the list. White people must stand firm on America's founding principles of personal responsibility and rugged individualism and stop funding projects for blacks that limit white people's personal liberty and financial security.

There is nothing more that can do for blacks. We must let nature take its course to severely limit this parasitic population. White people need to end the feeding and care of this group - today. The experiment has failed.
