The latest attempt by liberals to help black people is underway in our K-12 urban public schools.
These do-gooders are now defining down socially acceptable behavior for black students in school.
Bad behavior is being excused and attempts to hold black kids accountable by enforcing codes of conduct are called racist.
Having a sense of discipline has always been considered a virtue, a redeeming quality, but now its roots are claimed to lie in racism.
White liberal elites have chimed in about school codes of conduct.
The Capital Times newspaper of Madison, Wis., recently chronicled bad behavior by black students in its public schools. In the story, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said that racial discrimination in school discipline codes “is a real problem today.”
The white superintendent of the Madison public schools believes that “we need to address head-on our racial bias and the assumptions we make of students who are in the classroom.”
Really? Where I come from, bad behavior has always been unacceptable and is codified not by race but by societal norms to keep chaos from reigning.
