The Deleterious Effect of Desegregation on White Students
It is one thing to enforce a government policy that imparts inconvenience, but quite another to impose that policy without allowing those who are most affected by it to have any say in the matter.
Prior to the 1954 ruling by the Supreme Court outlawing public school segregation as unconstitutional, America was blessed with the world’s number one educational system, especially when measured in Math and Science achievement. After five decades of court-ordered de-segregation, the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) determined that America had dropped to 39th place among seventy nations measured in Mathematics education. In Science we did a little better, dropping only to 24th place. More recent measures of American education shows more decline: In Science we dropped from 502 points (2009) to 496 points (2015), while Math achievement declined from 487 (2009) to 470 (2015). The conclusion is inescapable: The darker America becomes, the lower we sink.
American Liberals for decades have insisted that the solution to “disproportionately” poor Black performance numbers is to “throw money at the problem.” After all, a main tenant of the Liberal argument in favor of Desegregation is that all-Black schools in the Segregation era were always and everywhere dramatically underfunded compared to their White counterparts. The fact is that according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in 2009 the US spent $12,300 for each full time-equivalent (FTE) elementary / secondary school student. This expenditure was 29% higher than the OECD average of $9,600 per student. At the post-secondary level, the US spent $29,700 per FTE student, 81% more than the $16,400 spent on
students at the same educational level. In short, America is spending more on education than anyone else! We just aren’t getting our money’s worth.
Endemic cheating and “grade inflation” to artificially assist Black students is Standard Operating Procedure in American schools, whether the school is segregated or not. Teachers and school administrators are under tremendous pressure ALWAYS to deliver “improvement” and “fairness” to their Minority students. Failure to show such improvement with Minority achievement will meet with criticism and censure, demotion or even dismissal. To paraphrase President Donald Trump, the educational system in America is “rigged.” It favors Minority students, especially Black ones, while punishing teachers and administrators – especially White ones!
Aggressive, anti-social behavior of Black students towards White ones is as American as apple pie, but politically incorrect to discuss or even notice. Bullying, intimidation and sexual coercion complaints have risen to where one in four White college girls were molested, and shockingly, one in 12 college boys, by their Black counterparts. Liberal America, especially the Educational establishment, considers this condition where Black students torment White students to be a beneficial component of desegregation!
When a White student complains about maltreatment at the hands of Black classmates, the White victim is enjoined to just “get used to it.” Should a White student or White parent or a White advocacy group persist in their complaint, they are castigated as being “racist.” White students being bedeviled by Black students – well, that is Social Justice and a great pillar on which the Cultural Marxist American educational system is built. White kids are intrinsically evil and deserve their plight in the new, integrated American classroom.
Thirty Percent seems to be the “Magic Number” where the character of an American classroom reaches a racial tipping point. When Blacks make up less than 30% of the students, they hold their more aggressive nature to themselves. But when the percentage of Blacks in a classroom reaches 30% or more, they let loose, begin acting like tribal predators, and essentially, take over.
Dr. Albert Schweitzer was a great humanitarian who, in the early Twentieth Century, founded a hospital in Africa in an effort to alleviate suffering among the natives. He made what we call the Schweitzer Observation: "I have given my life to try to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is something that all White men who have lived here like I have must learn and know: that these individuals are a sub-race. They have neither the intellectual, mental or emotional abilities to equate or to share equally with White men in any function of our civilization. I have given my life to try to bring them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: we the superior and they the inferior. For whenever a white man seeks to live among them as their equals they will either destroy him or devour him. And they will destroy all of his work. Let White men, from anywhere in the world, who come to Africa remember that you must continually retain that status: you the master and they the inferior like children that you help or teach. Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you."
It is obvious that Schweitzer’s comments were spot-on, and that Integration is the Ruination of Our Nation! ❖
