    Lil LeRoy don't need no pressure to perform, he is already at a disadvantage from the day he born.

    If liberals do it, it's not racism. . It's compassion. .

    Yes! Creating equality through clearly "defined" inequality! Wait....what?

    When there are so many actively promoted and implemented agendas dividing society we really need to question the intended endgame.

    When the only theories for such mandates are beyond comprehensible logic, we really really need to question the endgame.

    I used to marvel at the IEP goals for some of the special ed students we were trying to place in jobs after graduation. Here's an example.

    "By the end of the school year will learn to add two, two-digit numbers with 80% accuracy."

    80% accuracy? Why bother?

    But I retired last month. I should run for a seat on the school board. :rofl:

    Read the article.

    What it basically says is Asians > Whites > Hispanics > Blacks.

    These goals aren't for indivduals but races in general.

    Hell, if I was anything other than Asian...I would be po'ed. Florida is basically saying black, hispanic and white students are less teachable than Asians.

    However, ironically, if the Florida passed goals equal across the board you KNOW Jessie Jackson would be down there screaming racism and how black students need lower goals in order to succeed.

    Until this country throws out every race oriented goal, the very idea of reverse discrimination, setting racial hiring goals as a percentage of your employees, etc the tables will never be level.

    My BIL's mom is a black asst principal at a Milwaukee school - she is the one you don't want to be sent to since she takes no crap from anyone especially black students.

    She seriously chastises kids for being "fools." As a black student, if you even show the least amount of interest in succeeding grants and scholarships will abound. She has seen kids who have half or even full boat scholarships to good schools who are actively pursued by these colleges (i.e. they didn't apply, the school "scouted them" based on race) turn these opportunities down?

    Seriously WTH?

    Read this article very slowly. Prove that you have reading comprehension at least at an 8th grade leve. It's not saying what you think it is saying. Other state have done this, and oh yeah...it will fail.

    So lets say I had a kid and I wanted to game the system. I could check the kid off on the registration form as black. And even if he was white they couldn't say squat, because asking for proof is wrong.
