Are we on the verge of a push for Civil Rights 2.0, or is this just another manifestation of the perpetual revolution that has been ongoing since the great victory over restrictive covenants in 1948 (Shelley vs. Kramer)?
Disciplinary actions required in school systems across the nation [Federal Probe Targets Uneven Discipline At Seattle Schools, NPR, 3-7-13] primary result in individual black students being expelled or removed from class - when aggregated together - display a community collectively out of control.

President Obama is paying attention [Obama admin pressures schools into racial disciplinary quotas, College Insurrection, 10-13-12], with his administration attempting to implement a tiered, race-based school discipline policy.
It’s because of the white man’s Eurocentric rules, discriminating against black (and brown) students, that we find ourselves in this situation.

A school system awash in white privilege, where black (and brown) students are disrupted from learning at there own pace. [Big City Discipline, CS Monitor, 3-31-13].
The Obama Administration issued an Executive Order to establish a government panel in July of 2012 to explore why blacks are disciplined at rates higher than other races [Obama backs race-based school discipline policies, Daily Caller, 7-27-12]:
His July 26 executive order established a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.”
“African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,” said the order, titled “White House Initiative On Educational Excellence.”
Well, the Eurocentric American public school system has finally been put on notice, with black students in South Bend, Indiana uniting to demand the creation of a black student services department that will find out why such discrimination (translation: disciplining unruly black students) exists. [South Bend schools get call to action: Some seek creation of black student services department, South Bend Tribune, 6-176-13]:
"I'm here because silent voices can't be heard," Gladys Muhammad said. "We're tired of discriminatory practices."
One by one, Muhammad and a group of others approached the podium at a recent South Bend school board meeting to speak to the board and administration.
Among these African-American community leaders' concerns is the disparate number of black students who are identified as special education, as well as the suspension rate of African-American students here.
In April, The Tribune published a series called "Learning and teaching in the midst of race, special education and discipline" that described the district's recent citation by the Indiana Department of Education for the disproportionalities.
The sanction requires that 15 percent of the school corporation's $6.1 million federal special education grant -- which amounts to some $900,000 -- be spent on early intervention services for struggling students in an effort to ultimately avoid labeling them as special education.
But Muhammad and others are coming forward to ask the school district to do more.
They'd like a black student services department to be created.
It could be similar to the district's bilingual services department, they said.
Know this: in the New York, LA, Houston, Chicago, Dade County (Miami), Clarke County (Nevada), Broward County (Florida), and Philadelphia public school systems, white kids are a clear minority of the students enrolled.
|Yeah, its the same in Chicago|
And they are an even smaller minority of those students who are suspended.
Imagine 2050 has already happened in these cities/counties, with no racial nirvana/utopia/heaven created; the inverse is true.
It’s time for a divorce.
The white man’s law is too restrictive for most black (and brown) people; conversely, the quality of life – or lack there of - black (and brown) people create in formerly majority white cities is tantamount to a regression to the mean that makes life for white people incredibly difficult.
In the absence of whiteness, darkness prevails.
And as we see in a nation governed by Black-Run America (BRA), our public school system is little more than a day-care center – in many urban areas, a heavily armored day-care center – for the unwanted detritus of the black/brown community.
Here’s the problem with the American Public School System in a nutshell:
- The Bell Curve is real – racial differences exist
- Black males/females mature faster than their racial counterparts
- Lacking in future time-orientation, blacks engage in violent acts at far greater rates than their racial counterparts (no concept of risk/reward)
It’s time we learn to embrace white privilege; once its gone, you are left with 2013 Detroit.
