We're ALL Black According to Geneticists!
The jig is up. Thanks to the genetics revolution we now know that there is no such thing as race. The Human Genome Project (HGP) has determined unequivocally that there is the same amount of genetic variation among individuals within a so called racial group as there is between individuals in different racial groups. What that means is that there is no real genetic difference between blacks and whites or between whites and Asians or between any of the so called races.
Wonder why it's been so hush-hush? I mean, you would think this would be big news. Certainly on the order of Galileo stating that the Earth goes around the Sun and not vice versa. But you haven't heard it on NBC or read it in your local newspaper. It's more or less kept within the high brow community as if the common every day man in the street just couldn't take it. So you can read about it in the Atlantic Monthly or New York Times, but not your home town newspaper. And some professors on ivory tower college campuses are scrambling to prove it isn't so, just like there some who argue that Darwin was a fruitcake and evolution a stunt he pulled to grab the limelight.
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
Solutions: Fund schools based on their needs, not the prosperity of their area. Also, longer school days, more cultural competence and relevance, intelligent use of video and compter technology to grab kid's interest, bring back school libraries, art, music, theater etc. Pay teachers more and eliminate the ones that fail to teach effectively, even if they are making an effort. It should not be easy to become a teacher, we should weed out bad teachers while they are in college getting their Education degree, rather than after they have failed on the job.
These measures are expensive, but it is cheaper than continuing to feed kids into the criminal "justice' system.
