The race-baiters, race-hustlers, and poverty pimps would have you believe that any college admissions process that does not take into account the race of the applicant is de facto racist and the issue must be addressed by the Congress and the federal courts.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The issue is that the progressive socialist democrats and their progressive socialist teachers unions have done an abysmal job in education our children, especially those located in the inner cities. Perhaps the real scandal is that all of the money paid by the taxpayers to be spent on students and in the classrooms have been diverted to massive infrastructure projects that favor politically-connected special interests or diverted to unwarranted salaries, perks, and privileges that benefit incompetent teachers as well as skilled teachers. With multiple millions flowing into union pension and welfare programs that are administered by the unions, possibly with corruption and cronyism.
The politicians want your tax dollars without damaging that politically-protected class of tenured teachers who must be called to account for their teaching skills and subject-matter knowledge. The progressive democrats do not want testing of teachers or students. And, when testing students, there is often cheating by the teachers and administrators – even though the tests are artificially dumbed-down so they can be passed by the lowest common denominator of student.
And, heaven forbid you mention a charter school – likely to be better than public schools, and even more egregious from the position of the progressive socialist democrats, non-union. The progressive socialist democrats believe that your children are their property and that they, and they alone, are responsible for their welfare outside of the home. The unions believe that public money belongs to them and that vouchers for public schools and/or charter schools would highlight inefficient and failing schools, incentivizing the switch to private, non-union schooling.
Even worse …
We are dooming ill-prepared children to failure when they are admitted to top-flight schools based on affirmative action. When confronted with this no-excuses, competitive environment, these students are prone to drop out and never return. The shame and failure should be on the corrupt and uncaring progressive socialist unions and their political cronies, the corrupt progressive socialist democrats.
Bottom line …
It is not that the progressive socialist democrats want affirmative action or even care about your children – they want political power and access to public funds. Any public good is merely a side benefit.
Time to remove the progressive socialist democrats from the House, Senate, and the Bureaucracy. Time to eliminate public employee unions that have not served us well and whose continued political corruption threatens to bankrupt us all in the finest “shared misery” socialism manner. It’s your choice and nobody is holding a gun to your head in the privacy of the voting booth.
