We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, Sperry observes, recently announced a similar, more “holistic” policy that, according to him, deals with the “root causes” of bad behavior and will provide “a safe learning environment.”
In Syracuse, New York, where the school district adopted “restorative justice” anti-discipline practices, Sperry reports that student behavior has worsened, with more fighting among teens, increased verbal abuse of teachers, and more student time spent walking around the halls.
The "root cause" of that teen violence is human nature, untamed.
Actually, hoop skirts haven't been declared racist.
Apparently, some privileged, upper middle class White kids are afraid someone might consider them racists to they've banned them.
Lost upon these paragons of privilege is that hoop skirts were not just worn by Scarlet O'Hara but also by women in the salons of New York and London, by free White women and free Black women of upper classes. If they wished to be accurate, they should ban hoop skirts for being classist, not racist.
If you're a lefty who deals with the world as you wish it to be rather than how it really is (or you are on a mission to change human nature), I'd saw you could misinterpret a punch in the face quite easily.
"As recently as 2013, official PLA [People’s Liberation Army] publications have issued blanket denials such as, 'The Chinese military has never supported any hacker attack or hacking activities.' They can’t make that claim anymore."
Sure they can. Hacking is illegal; the PLA is operating legally in accordance with the laws of the People's Republic of China.
"How do you misinterpret a punch in the face?"
File charges. Sue the student, the parents, the school and anyone else that suggests this was the result of your white privilage or misinterpreting African American culture. Wear a body camera, bring a recorder into meetings on these issues, go after anyone who denies your rights. File federal lawsuits for violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Education Ammendents Act of 1972.
I read the article and all I can say is the rot is deep. In all of this I see no reason or explanation of why the majority should abandon their country and their culture for a small, non-contributing minority.
Home School, because to send your children to public school is child abuse.
It was said that the rape of young girls in Rotherham was just the beginning. Sadly, that was accurate. Britain needs to come to grips with this and it will require the uprooting of their multi-cultural diktats. This should also be a lesson to us here in the States. The same people who perpetuated and covered up that horror in England are here trying to do the same thing (see the link on misinterpreting a punch in the face).
Good fellow with midlife crisis, ought to stick with doctoring
I like Carson and I wish he would run for something like governor or senator first before trying to run for president. He has a lot of good things to say from his own experience about why blacks as a group aren't doing as well as they could. I think we need that more than his being president.
‘Race-Based’ Discipline Policies in school
Have you noticed that Obama and Holder send their children to expensive private schools?
Everyone knows blacks commit an inordinate amount of crime and pretending they don't is not going to improve matters.
