    Multiculturalism In Baltimore:Tension w/Black and Latino High School Students[W:18]

    Diversity is our strength! Apparently black and Latino high school students in Baltimore can't get along and are self-segregating:

    I went to a mixed-race high school, and we got along and actually learned, but that was back in the early 70's, when teachers and school admin had control of the students, and they made us behave like human beings.

    Which is where 90% of our problems rest. Black, white, brown, yellow, red, green or blue. Too many schools scared to death of lawsuits have so handicapped teachers and the kids have basically figured it out. Parents want their kids taught, but heaven forbid you "hurt their selfesteem" or worse, hold them accountable.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Multiculturalism is about not assimilating. It's about being different. It's about feeling superior to other cultures. It's about rejecting American culture and customs. It's a weapon used by the Groucho Marxist in America.

    Generally, High Schools tend to frown on violence regardless of anyone's race. They usually tend to "make" people behave like human beings.

    God forbid you would have to do so.

    As a student, or in general?

    I haven't spent much time in one since 1991. At the time however, the Friars didn't look too kindly on white kids fighting each other either.
