Dr.Mxyzptlk.: Maybe he was addressing the failure of majority black schools, administrators,and school boards to really address issues of poor performance.

Of course, we all know this is a myth,and that school boards always act in the best interest of the children and community.

"They're all connected," McDonald said. "If you look at Clayton County, DeKalb County, Atlanta, these are overwhelmingly majority African-American school districts. This is not about the children. This is about money. Every school system has contracts. This is about folks getting their hands on those contracts."

Subsequent investigations suggest the Atlanta case may not be isolated. An investigation last year by the Journal-Constitution found 196 school districts across the USA with suspicious test score gains. In 2011, USA TODAY looked at scores across six states and the District of Columbia and found more than 1,600 cases of improbable score gains, including several cases in which educators in D.C. schools erased student answers on test forms.
The Atlanta cheating scandal is but the most recent in a series of cases in metro Atlanta that have placed public education squarely at the nexus of race and politics:

TuteTibiImperes: serial_crusher: I don't like the concept of pressuring people to resign.  If you're in the power to fire them, fire them.  Probably have to wait until the next election cycle though?

Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from the consequences of people's reaction to that speech.  I think it's a good thing that society is starting to stand up to those who espouse backwards and intolerant views.

It's perfectly reasonable for the citizens of a city to be outraged and call for the ouster of a city councilwoman (in a city that's 35% black) who makes the statement that black people shouldn't be on the school board, and then reiterates her support for that statement.


She didn't say that blacks shouldn't be on the school board; she said the the school system is being ruined by those blacks who are on the school board. How do you know that the blacks on the school board didn't ruin the school system? Because, if so, then this would be another non-racist remark being turned into a racists issue by idiots who cast an extremely wide net, just like the Duck Dynasty guy saying that he recalls, from when he was a child, that black people seemed to be happy.

I think serial_crusher wasn't making a freedom of speech argument, just saying that the citizens should, if they want, be voting her out or ensuring she gets fired (I'm not sure which is the case here), not pressuring her into 'resigning'.


Yes that. I've made the freedom of speech claims in situations where the speech was clearly unrelated to the persons work, so firing them wasn't a sensible thing to do. But in this case she was talking about the makeup of the school board which is a clearly work related conversation.

Firing her over it would be fine, but should be done in accordance with established laws. If they have to wait to the next election to vote her out, that's how it goes.

For what it's worth, I gotta say I have a minor amount of respect for her.  How many times have we had politicians backpedal when saying stupid stuff like this?  As idiotic as this woman's comments were, she shrugged her shoulders and said, effectively, "Yes, I said that.  I meant it.  So what?"

She's vile, repugnant, and hateful...but she's got my respect just a little more than racists who pretend they're not.


The counterpoint is that if she is speaking out that blatantly she must think that she won't get admonished or otherwise punished. That's scary (and scarier that she might be right).

No.  You do not get points for being an honest bigot.  There is no balance or even partial offset here.  People hate when politicians say the right things and then do the opposite.  Or strike secret deals that undermine the people.  Simply being honest about being a horrible person is not worthy of any respect whatsoever.  It's merely a defense mechanism against guilt.

links136: And much like getting 'jewed', a lot of the negative stereotypes are result from the treatment of europeans. As in Jews were usually segregated to certain professions, such as bankers and accounting, and therefore became dominant in the position.  Therefore, you get 'jewed'.


I feel crappy for knowing this but 'jew' as a verb is referring to the stereo type that Jews were cheap ass money pinchers.   So if your boss 'jewed you out of your bonus', it means your boss was being a cheap asshat.

I'm not so sure she "knows" this in the sense that I know the first World Cup 2014 match is scheduled for today.  I think she "knows" it in the sense that five-year-old me "knew" that Santa brought me gifts every Christmas.  That would take it from "shameful and even borderline terrifying" to "bigot with a brain too underdeveloped to see reality."

Do you have links to anything that controls for socioeconomic factors, indicating that the difference is due to race and not a myriad of other reasons?

This is why people think you're racist. No one is suggesting any of your absurd strawmen like "majorit black schools have no problems" or "black administrators are beyond corruption." People disagree with your notion that these school systems have problems because of their majority blackness.

The psychological burden of keeping something secret can be very heavy, especially if it's a deeply felt conviction that you view as part of your personality or even your soul.  People who admit to things are experiencing a release of that tension which can build up over years and eventually overpower the fears of being exposed.   The fear becomes even less if there are support networks in place.

The guilty feelings I'm talking about mostly stem from not being who she thinks she is.  So she goes in the opposite direction and feels pride, which further pushes down any residual guilt about her beliefs she may have picked up from external or internal cues.  In being true to her identity she gains a sense of moral superiority and feels better about herself while also receiving validation for her beliefs from like-minded individuals either too cowardly to do the same or who are looking for allies in general.

Coming out as gay in a homophobic environment would be considered courageous and worthy of respect.  Coming out as a bigot in America's south is hardly a bold step and deserves no applause.

Well, she didn't exactly say that either. It was a bit ambiguous as to whether it was "those blacks" or "those blacks on the school board". Fortunately, she opened her mouth and removed all doubt, she's a blithering idiot.

The video makes it perfectly clear that she's not qualified to be on a council. She messed up, and instead of correcting it she doubled down. Her stubbornness really completes the package: there's no room for anything except herself, she made that perfectly clear. Imagine her city issues: there would be no discussion, it's her way or the highway. This was pretty easy to fix= one says that it was taken out of context, she was tired, blah blah. Nope.

Yes, but your opinion is an archaic and bigoted one. The problem with the schools probably has more to do with racists like her objectifying and working against the blacks on the school board, than it has to do with the actual black members of the board.

I wonder if she is playing or going to play the "I hate political correctness" card? That or the Bible is usually how I usually hear people like this try to justify themselves.

DrPainMD:   She didn't say that blacks shouldn't be on the school board; she said the the school system is being ruined by those blacks who are on the school board. How do you know that the blacks on the school board didn't ruin the school system?

cchris_39: Is she crazy? Big cities and big city school systems have flourished under black leadership.


You two seem to be confusing  correct  with  right.   She may, may be correct, she what she said certainly isn't right.

Headso: How do black people ruin a school board? you would think black people and white people would want the same things for their kids within reason.


I've read several news accounts where a school board tried to end social promotion (i.e., passing kids into the next grade even tho they didn't learn what was taught in the current grade) and being bombarded with protests. It seems like the protesters are, more often than not, black.

You would think. I'm curious about what this newly elected board member and her newfound majority voting block were trying to get passed that elicited this reaction.

It's Texas. For all we know they were trying to push teaching evolution and this woman wasn't going to stand for it.


But we don't know, do we.
