The Obama Administration’s Mandated Racism

Its new school-discipline guidelines encourage discrimination.

The Departments of Education and Justice have teamed up to make the lives of students in tough neighborhoods even tougher. Framed as a measure to combat discrimination against black and Hispanic children, the guidelines issued by the Obama administration about school discipline will actually encourage racial discrimination, undermine the learning environments of classrooms, and contribute to an unjust race-consciousness in meting out discipline.

Claiming that African-American and Hispanic students are more harshly disciplined than whites for the same infractions, the Obama administration now advises that any disciplinary rule that results in a “disparate impact” on those groups will be challenged by the government.

“Disparate impact” analysis, as we’ve seen in employment law, does not require any intentional discrimination. It means, for example, that if an employer asks job seekers to take a test, and a larger percentage of one ethnic group fails the test than another, the test is de facto discriminatory because it has a “disparate impact.”

It amazes me to see him pile driving the black and hispanic communities into the ground.
Everything he does lowers their educational standards, their behavioral standards, their cultural standards, etc...
As a matter of fact, everything he does causes the exact opposite result of what he says was intended.
I'm beginning to believe that's the intended result. In other words, he's a lying fraud!

I think this is most appropriate, after all when something is dead
you "bury" it.

Divide and conquer. The art of creating a race war. The Liberals have been using these deceptive devices for years to gain votes. the funny thing is more minorities have been waking up to the fact that they are nothing more than government pawns.
