Political Correctness Versus Rational Thought

2018 March 19

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report.

Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions.

The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

Former President Barack Obama-era policies loosened up school discipline policies, threatening federal investigation or funding losses for schools that did not check its discipline rates against the racial makeup of the student body. Republicans have speculated whether relaxed discipline codes permitted Nikolas Cruz, who had a record of violence before a Feb. 14 school shooting in Florida, to escape the notice of law enforcement.

Minnesota passed a law giving teachers more authority to kick threatening students out of their classrooms after state teacher Debbie York suffered injuries and had to retire when a first grade student pushed her and injured her neck and back.

“It’s not about arming teachers with guns; it is about arming them with the freedom to talk about troubled kids whose behavior not only needs to be assessed, but when the behavior puts others at risk of serious harm, intervention other than therapy,” York told the NYT. The former teacher wants the stricter disciplinary law to go into effect nationwide.

However, Minneapolis education officials worry about racism.

Political correctness: we can’t understand why this is happening, but it is likely caused by racisssm.

Rational Thought:

  • The black illegitimacy rate in the US for blacks is 72% compared to 29% for whites. Since most suburban blacks are nuclear family units, the illegitimacy rate in places like Minneapolis is even higher, It’s not unusual for an inner city black woman to have children  fathered by different men, non of whom plays the role of an active dad
  • Many single black mothers are high school drop-outs and second or third-generation single moms
  • Minneapolis has a large portion of Samolis. Samolia is one of the most violent countries in Africa and has a national average IQ of 68
  • Poor, uneducated black parents tend to have less interest in their children’s education than white, Asian or even Hispanic parents as shown by lack of participation in student evaluation nights and other school activities
  • The 3-1 suspension rate mirrors adult life. Blacks represent 12.6% of the population, yet blacks: commit 51% of all murders in the US, represent 37% of the federal prison population and commit two to four times their share of virtually every category of crime (based on their share of population), according to the FBI

Solution to Minneapolis schools’ problems? No, but rational reasons for the school district’s problems are the first step toward solving them.

Facts are real and honest; they just aren’t politically correct and therefore the left refuses to recognizes them.

    From InstaPundit.com this takes up where the Paul Ryan budget (huge deficit, funds sanctuary cities and Planned Parenthood but NOT a wall with Mexico) left off:
    “A prominent Senate Republican is pushing a plan to inject $10 billion a year for three years into ObamaCare exchanges.
    Two of them, actually. Neither name — Lamar Alexander or Susan Collins — will surprise you.”

    What is the point of having a Repub Party if all they do is rip off we Deplorables and back Dem priorities?

    Political Correctness and Rational Thought are in total conflict.

    The adherents of PC behavior insist that even attempting to apply LOGIC (i.e., Rational Thought) to human interactions is itself RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, SEXIST, ISLAMOPHOBIC…or some such.

    In just ATTEMPTING to discuss social issues I have been labeled one or more of those, depending on the subject. In person and online.

    The Nazis will accept NO disagreement with the Social and Political issues they consider SETTLED!!

    Speaking of Political Correctness…

    PowerLine has been following the insanity that is ravaging the schools in Minnesota, and is ravaging them across America. The author of this article provides an update.

    As the author notes:
    ==> “For poor and disadvantaged students, education presents a way out and and a way up. It is a very strange “civil rights” crusade that would deprive well behaved minority students of an environment conducive to learning. To put it diplomatically, the people promoting this crusade are nuts. ”

    The Suppressives of the Left KNOW what is best for Y-O-U…so shut up and obey!

    [from the article]
    Many smart people have pointed out for years that what was once liberalism of the JFK variety became leftism, then progressivism, which has steadily moved farther to the left and is no longer a political persuasion, but a religion. Its adherents in Congress and the media will go the mattresses to defend their own, no matter how egregious their crimes against the country. Today’s progressives operate like Putin’s FSB! Any crimes committed in the furtherance of their agenda are, in their minds, legal. It may even come to pass in months to come that someone among this crowd ordered Seth Rich to be killed for giving WikiLeaks the DNC emails.
    …..
    The aftermath of the Obama years will haunt this country for decades to come; economically (Trump has already gone a long way toward fixing this), cultural (the primacy of LGBT over everyone else), social (he set the racial divide back at least sixty years), and health care (Obamacare destroyed what was once the best system in the world). Obama hammered the final nail of leftist indoctrination into higher education and all the nonsense that entails: multiple gender identities, microaggressions, safe spaces, the end of free speech. He virtually negated national security by eviscerating the military and promoting Islam to the degree that he enabled terrorism. The Obama Cabinet was staffed with academics steeped in progressivism and political correctness who lacked any real-world experience. The result of their uninformed, immature leadership was an eight-year disaster.

    Canadian school district facing backlash over white privilege campaign:

    If the district superintendent believes she has unfairly benefitted because of her race, shouldn’t she step down?

    I demonstrated my white priviledge by loading milk trucks to earn college tuition. My son did so by waiting tables at Outback and my daughter by working retail and at a Chippewa casino.

    Mitch is broke, Paul has no remorse,
    We can no longer beat this dead horse,
    This house of cards is about to collapse,
    For us there’ll be no lapse,
    This grand illusion has run it’s course.

    The “people’s” house is but a sham,
    The ditch carp of the left exemplify this scam,
    Like pavlovian mutts licking their butts,
    This gaggle of whores and two bit sluts,

    Up their hairy butts congress they can cram.

    This is not isolated. As I travel about, more and more parents are asking what Johnny or Jennie will be learning and not accepting a blank slate offer.

    If you are sick and tired of professors indoctrinating students in politicized classes that teach nothing of any use in real life, and hate the idea that tenure immunizes them from accountability, the next decade or so is going to provide some relief. The reckoning is coming, as shocked professors at a University of Wisconsin campus just discovered. Enrollment in politicized humanities and social sciences departments has fallen. The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point announced its plan to cut 13 majors. The real barbarians are those who drove academia into self-absorbed obsessions of the left, making it irrelevant to the needs of students, while overloading their schools with administrative dead weight.

    Bush I & II were bombarded and fell for the ‘homeless’ petard. Trump does not seem to have been assaulted by that brush. Yet the nature and depth of that ‘problem’ has not been launched against him. Why?

    Best damn description ever of our current urban malaise —

    “No city in the western world should be like this. If we take our major cities as evidence, a consensus emerges favoring these third world standards, perhaps as a companion to their third world arrogance and studied incivility. Hillary Clinton lost a rigged election in just this way.

    Cities produce little that is useful and consume most of what is. They’re reservations for the mildly but progressively insane, each day a little more freakish, a little more perverted. They measure success not by who has the most but by who wastes the most. They’re wholly dependent on the despised normals outside their precincts for everything that sustains life, and certain of delivery by way of imagined entitlement. The jungles of Mexico are full of such places.

    Cities are fragile, populated with hostages debilitated by fear, without useful resiliance or independent resourcefulness. Cities would be uninhabitable within days of a power failure . As it is, they’re paralyzed by persistent but otherwise insignificant attacks . Such cities are beyond fixing, yet by weight of numbers they force the Deplorables to comply with their bizarre delusions. It becomes clearer by the day what this means.”

    That’s the goal of the left – in the UK, Western Europe, Casnada and the US – replace the pesky middle class with foreigners who are less educated, less skilled,m less white and more dependent on the government.

    As soon as the first of those pushing “white privilege,” especially in academia resigns his/her position to demonstrate they are such a believer that they are willing to make personal sacrifices for the cause, I might start paying attention.

    I have a client headquartered in Culver City, CA – between LA and Santa Monica. Just for the heck of it, I took a look at some real estate listings. One house (1,730 sq ft) stucco on a postage-size lot is going for @1.4 million. The estimated mortgage payment is $5,500/mo. The same home in a nice Detroit suburb would be under $300k. Now I realize why people in SoCal live in cars.

    Question: why do companies have headquarters in places like Los Angeles or San Francisco when they could move to Texas, Tennessee or Michigan and pay employees 30% – 50% bless?

    Going outside in 20 degree weather in January isn’t fun, but it sure beats living in your car.

    Actually the northern suburbs are quite nice. The only reason I ever venture into the city is to attend an athletic event. Relatively few illegals. In fact, the local cable channels don’t even include Univision and Telemundo. And, we don’t trip over illegals when we go to Kroger.
