School Violence Hidden in Virginia Schools

Definition of racism: holding differing standards or treating people differently due to race, that like gender and species, is a product of biology. Examples of racism today is affirmative action, pretending one's value is based on race and not merit or individual achievement, etc.

Claiming non-whites can't be racist due to "lack of power" is irrational nonsense. Prejudice has nothing to do with race. Attributing characteristics to entire groups of people and not individuals is RACISM. Claiming merit and equal treatment is racist is irrational because whites and Asian achieve while non-Asian minorities fail at the same task.

It is also a racist claim implying non-whites somehow can't achieve what whites can - yes they can. Unequal outcome is normal and part of the human condition. Denial of this basic fact is irrational.

The grieving family above presents a problem for irrational Liberal racialists. One protected group has victimized another protected group. Discussing MS13 Latino violence is attacked as racism. Violence in Black communities by Blacks is shouted down as racism. Evading the issue is getting people killed besides being irrational.

The recent Florida school shootings that left 17 dead is a prime example. Mr. Cruz (who is Hispanic) was accused of being a white supremacist - the press walked that back. Never mind 16 of the 17 victims were WHITE. Never let facts get in the way of yelling racism. But race did directly lead to these murders - thank you President Obama.

Cruz was a known violent criminal. But because of his race he was shielded from being prosecuted. Many other violent minority criminals go on to kill others.

By not reporting and prosecuting violent juvenal criminals makes any background check for a gun purchase useless as Cruz proved. To quote The Washington Times March 6, 2018:

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is coming under renewed pressure to uproot the Obama administration's lenient school-discipline directive, which critics say backfired tragically with last month's high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, has urged Mrs. DeVos to overhaul the 2014 "Dear Colleague" letter on school discipline, a joint guidance by the Education and Justice departments that threatened schools with federal civil rights probes unless they reduce law-enforcement referrals, suspensions and expulsions of minority students.

Those policies, embraced at the outset by the Broward County Public Schools, have been blamed for allowing shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz to avoid being arrested or taken into custody despite committing offenses such as assault and carrying bullets to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School...

And Virginia has implemented the same insanity under Democrat Terry McAuliffe. This hides minority criminals from arrest making our gun background check system useless. To quote that fool:

"Too many of our students are suspended and expelled instead of staying in that classroom. We cannot have our schools viewed as hostile environments where children are branded as criminals...The disproportionate use of school discipline on African-Americans and students with disabilities is totally unacceptable here in Virginia."

But what if they are criminals, Terry?

Suspending Criminal Blacks Not Racism.

by Lewis Loflin

According to something called the Center for Public Integrity Virginia students (meaning blacks) are referred to police and court systems more than in any other state. Gov. Terry McAuliffe came up with an initiative titled "Classrooms not Courtrooms" to try to get a handle on the problem - while ignoring the problem.

The problem once again is low-achieving non-Asian minorities chiefly blacks. Mr. McAuliffe sees it as school resource officers and school officials are simply out to jail and discriminate against black and mentally retarded students.

See Suspending Criminal Blacks Not Racism

To quote the good governor, "The disproportionate use of school discipline on African-Americans and students with disabilities is totally unacceptable here in Virginia." But what are you going to do about the massive levels of family breakdown, violence, and dysfunction that shows up in the schools?

Just how violent and disruptive do the students have to be before they are removed from the school system? How much more chaos do failing minority dominated school systems have to endure just to make white liberal politicians feel-good?

In other words Mr. McAuliffe is coming down on school resource officers and law enforcement for the problems generated by these low-achieving blacks. He says, "Too many of our students (meaning you know who) are suspended and expelled instead of staying in that classroom. We cannot have our schools viewed as hostile environments where children are branded as criminals."

But what if the criminals in training kill someone Mr. McAuliffe? What are you going to do when the next feral black teenager kills somebody, go out and demand more gun control for law-abiding citizens?

In further signs of societal breakdown the Bristol Herald Courier (Oct. 18, 2015) is reporting a massive uptick in drug addicted babies. The Lynchburg Treatment Center in Lynchburg Virginia is at the forefront of this problem.

Virginia hospital discharge records shows cases of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) have exploded. To quote the article Virginia hospital discharge data shows cases a NAS rising from 88 in 1999 to 493 in 2013. They also claim that a quarter of 2009's preventable deaths were connected to maternal or caregiver drug abuse.

This problem has been around for years and is growing and will show up in our schools sooner or later - no it's already here and will Mr. McAuliffe tries to make a race issue out of it?
