Metro Atlanta Schools With The Highest Number Of Suspensions
THE DEKALB NAACP SAYS THEY WILL NOT SUE THEIR FRIENDS ON THE 'DEKALB COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD' FOR RACISM - IT IS FAR TOO CLOSE TO THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TO TRIGGER SUCH A FRACTURE IN THE PROGRESSIVE BLACK COMMUNITY OVER THE ISSUE OF BLACK PEOPLE RECEIVING A QUALITY EDUCATION AFTER SO MANY PAST POLITICAL GAINS TO TAKE OVER THE SCHOOL SYSTEM
THIS TIME THE FAULT RESIDES WITH THE AJC!!!
The AJC is far too often guilty of providing "Just The Facts" reporting on subjects that have an underlying RACIAL supposition. ("Who Gets The Death Penalty In Georgia", "Police Involved Homicides" and now "School Suspensions).
Just as it was the case about 10 years ago when the AJC noted "If You Kill A White Person In Georgia You Are More Likely To Get The Death Penalty" - I LOOKED AT THE NUMBERS and concluded that the PLACES WHERE BLACK PEOPLE LIVE IN OUR HIGHEST CONCENTRATIONS and thus BLACK PEOPLE ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE KILLED - ARE THE PLACES WHERE THE LOCAL PROSECUTORS RARELY APPLY THE DEATH PENALTY and that THIS is what is driving the seeming racial disparity - so is the case in this latest report.
If the AJC was intellectually curious they would go into these schools and look at the racial composition of the TEACHING STAFF AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION. The fact is: The "Blacker" the student body of schools in Atlanta, the more Black adults are on the staff. PERIOD!!
As a result - IF the Racial Confidence Men are arguing that "Black People Get Suspended More Than White Folks AND THEREFORE There Is Overt Racist Motivations" then they need to be forced to explain how Black school administrators are "Operating Against The Interests Of Black People".
Instead the AJC is cowardly, UNABLE to take the admissions that the Mayor of Atlanta just made in his "State Of Atlanta" speech, indicating that Black children from broken homes, without a positive adult male presence drives a lot of the dysfunction that his police officers and (county) social workers have to deal with.
Instead it appears standard fare to have people worship and praise the newly branded "Obama My Brother's Keeper Program" while being sheepishly unwilling to challenge the Black Racial Services Machine on their INTERESTS or COMPETENCIES at fielding a plan that is comprehensive enough to change the 'Room Temperature' of the communities where their extractive scheme draws their most loyal support.
To pretend that their attacks on the CULTURE in these places at the hands of Progressive Public Policy, only to have Community-Level institutions (ie: rites of passage program) replaced by government sponsored/coordinated programs only exacerbates the problems.
My suggestion to all who claim that the Rate Of Black Suspensions is RACIST - let them take over one of these schools and produce a level of discipline, order and quality education.
