Obama: Affirmative Action PUNISHMENT for Whites? Or giving Blacks another pass on criminal behavior?

When I first read this item, I could hardly believe it. Is Obama and his neo-communists so stupid as to suggest letting black punishment slide and/or punishing non-blacks to equalize the outcome of punishment? Or in Obamaspeak: punishment justice! 

Obama backs race-based school discipline policies

President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.

What does Obama have to say about the significant of influence of the family unit and traditional two-parent families on educational performance. Or the fact that blacks are more likely to come from a single-parent background which is the result of government programs which deny assistance payments to families if there is a male residing in the house. A policy that has led to black promiscuity and women having children with multiple irresponsible men who refuse to accept their parenting and child support obligations. Thus producing an entire generation of children without male role models, the need to conform to societal norms and the airs of victimhood. Even at the expense of being branded a racist, one must note that the democrats have turned blacks into a permanent underclass and that no amount of financial assistance and affirmative actions is likely to restore self-esteem, self-motivation, and a pattern of achievement without first changing the “black culture” which rewards failure and denies support to those who achieve beyond their peers. In short, democrat-style socialism where everybody is dragged down to equal mediocrity, rather than rewarding the achievers who will boost the entire culture like a rising sea lifting all ships.

“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.”

How can this be when the majority of inner cities are controlled by the benevolent democrat party and the recipient of billions of dollars in financial aid and affirmative action support? How can we fault the unholy alliance between the teachers’ unions and the democrats who have perverted (yes, that is the appropriate word) education to the point of producing social activists who can barely compete in today’s world of technological advances? Where testing requirements are continually lowered to accommodate the abysmal scores of students who might have failed their courses and failed to graduate. Where today’s “B” is yesterday’s “D.” 

Because of those causes, the report suggests, “over a third of African American students do not graduate from high school on time with a regular high school diploma, and only four percent of African American high school graduates interested in college are college-ready across a range of subjects.”

How stupid are the democrats and teachers if they believe that everybody is mentally prepared to meet the challenges of college life – which mostly produces little wonks that become clerical workers. Why did the teachers’ unions kill the trade and vocational programs that would have allowed a significant number of people to learn life-skills and earn a good living?

This is socialist clap-trap …

“What this means is that whites and Asians will get suspended for things that blacks don’t get suspended for,” because school officials will try to level punishments despite groups’ different infraction rates, predicted Hans Bader, a counsel at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Bader is a former official in the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, and has sued and represented school districts and colleges in civil-rights cases.

This can’t be accurate. Affirmative action in punishment. Giving an already disadvantaged minority permission to behave badly or, even worse, perpetuate their bad behavior due to a lack of consequences. If this were literally true, it appears that the socialists are cooking the books on punishment just as they have cooked the books on minority achievement.

Obama, the racist …

“It is too bad that the president has chosen to set up a new bureaucracy with a focus on one particular racial group, to the exclusion of all others,” said Roger Clegg, the president of the Center for Equal Opportunity.

Again, Obama is corrupt; playing the race card and engaging in active racism when he promotes one group of people over another for political advantage.

Democrats can’t handle the truth or deal with true solutions, they must make excuses and push affirmative action …

A disproportionate share of crimes are committed by African Americans, and they are disproportionately likely to misbehave in school… [because] more than 7 out of 10 African Americans (72.5 percent) are born out of wedlock… versus fewer than 3 out of 10 whites,” he said in a statement to The Daily Caller. Although ” you won’t see it mentioned in the Executive Order… there is an obvious connection between these [marriage] numbers and how each group is doing educationally, economically, criminally,” he said.

Imagine using this policy on a broader societal scale? Giving black criminals a pass and sending only white criminals to jail until the proportion of blacks equals the proportion of blacks existing in the general population? Crazy! But that’s symptomatic of Obama and his fellow travelers.

The order created a “President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African Americans.” It will include senior officials from several federal agencies — including the Departments of Education, Justice and Labor — which have gained increased power over state education policies since 2009.

There is nothing in the United States Constitution which allows the federal government to dictate educational policy. Most of the executive agencies in existence are unconstitutional, violate the law and exert power only by coercion – withholding taxes revenues illegally confiscated from the states – and returned only if the state agrees to abide by federal rules and regulations. You will notice that the most corrupt and hyper-politicized agencies are in the forefront of this new initiative.

This is not theoretical … it is now being implemented in democrat-dominated areas …

The progressives campaign for race-based discipline policies also won a victory in Maryland July 24. The state’s board of education established a policy demanding that each racial or ethnic group receive roughly proportional level of school penalties, regardless of the behavior by members of each group. The board’s decision requires that “the state’s 24 school systems track data to ensure that minority and special education students are not unduly affected by suspensions, expulsions and other disciplinary measures,” said a July 25 Washington Post report. “Disparities would have to be reduced within a year and eliminated within three years,” according to the Post.

This appears to be a criminal violation of the United States Constitution which guarantees equal treatment under the law for all citizens. Any elected or sworn official implementing this policy should be immediately prosecuted and/or impeached.

Enter the race-baiting, self-serving attorneys who will suck taxpayer funds out of the educational system …

The state’s new racial policy was welcomed by progressives, including Judith Browne Dianis, a director of the D.C.-based Advancement Project. “Maryland’s proposal is on the cutting edge,” she told the Post. Dianis’ project is also a law firm that litigates race-related questions, and it gains from laws and regulations that spur race-related legal disputes.

“The combination of overly harsh school policies … has created a ‘schoolhouse-to-jailhouse track,’ in which punitive measures such as suspensions, expulsions, and school-based arrests are increasingly used to deal with student misbehavior,” claimed the group’s website. This “is a racial justice crisis, because the students pushed out through harsh discipline are disproportionately students of color,” the group insisted.

Obama and the socialists: fighting against the law and the Constitution …

In 1997, however, the Seventh Circuit appeals court barred the practice of racial balancing in school discipline to avoid disparate impact lawsuits, said Bader. Progressives say the “disparate impact” claims are supported by the 1964 Civil Right Act.

Critics, such as Clegg, say “disparate impact” law is used to trump popular and effective color-blind practices, such as civil-service tests by governments and employment-suitability testing by companies. Another critic, David Rettig, head of the National Character Education Foundation, told The Daily Caller in February that apparently-disproportionate school discipline practices can be a reflection of local crime reports. “Outside the walls of the school, how many of these kids are coming from not just dysfunctional homes, but homes that are not supportive of their children?” he told TheDC.  <Source: The Daily Caller>

Bottom line …

We need to throw the democrat/socialist/communists out of power and reform the educational system. We need to promote conservative thinking rather than excusing the bad behavior of underachievers. We need to have entire communities work in return for the millions of support dollars. We need to remove lawyers and administrators who siphon off aid money before it even reaches its intended target.

We need to throw Barack Obama, his fellow travelers and race-hustlers like those in the racist Congressional Black Caucus under the bus and out of our lives.

I function in an area of data processing where race is not an issue. Everybody is treated equally: like crap, with long hours, short deadlines and a significant amount of pressure. People are smart and well-motivated. And, for the most part, they associate with other smart and well-motivated people. They do not hide their ability so their peers can feel good about themselves; nor do they listen to those who might suggest that they need to slow down and quit performing above the norm. They do not dress funny. They do not affect funny or complicated spellings of their names. They do not speak in racial tongues – although they tend to engage in computers-peak jargon and use acronyms which are incomprehensible to outsiders. This should be the model with a mostly color-blind group of achievers. Another notable characteristic, they are mostly apolitical and care more about processing performance than they do politicians.

If Obama’s Executive Order promotes beneficial educational programs, why do they not apply to everyone as per the Constitution of the United States. Obama is said to be a constitutional law expert, yet he openly flouts the Constitution at every opportunity to pander to blacks for political advantage. Does he not realize he is perpetuating the black underclass and tacitly endorsing bad societal behavior? Or does he know the truth and is willfully sacrificing people for political advantage?

Enough of this Orwellian nightmare. Throw the bums out in 2012.
