    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If that's what you get from reading my post, I think it is accurate to say, you need some teaching regardless of the color of the teacher.

    Probably, but what is your point? Local communities still have sway on school policies for the most part. I'd be surprised if this wasn't the case in CA.

And if he knows his stuff and can teach it, his skin color will be of absolutely no importance whatsoever to his class.
    Agree as far as quality matters. There is no reason why this district cannot recruit a black person to teach a course that relates specifically to its own issues.

    Yes there is because it assumes a black person is more qualified based purely on the color of his skin. He isn't. He can be just as out of touch with the experience of many black Americans as a white man can be out of touch with the experience of many white Americans. It is as racist to think that all the people of a particular race in any given class will see things the same, think alike, or share a common experience as it is foolish to assume that a person who hasn't experienced something is incapable of understanding it. Cultural studies should not be about individual experience. Cultural studies should be focused on history and the effects of various dynamics and policy on society as a whole. The teacher should be competent to teach that, and skin color is 100% unimportant re whether he or she will be competent.

    I'm in a good mood, so I'm gonna try to explain why that statement is apologism:

    Superiority is inherent to bigotry. Pretending otherwise apologizes for bigotry in attempting to claim it is something other than false superiority.

    Do you believe superiority is not inherent to bigotry? If that's the case, you're wrong and you need to re-examine the concept.

    Black community leaders in Fresno, Calif., are urging the Fresno Unified School District to re-evaluate the hiring of a white guy to
    teach three cultural studies courses at a brand-new middleschool that will overwhelmingly serve minority students.

    Rutherford B. Gaston Middle School — named after the city’s first blackprincipal — will open in a few short weeks. It’s the first middle school in the immediate, poverty-ridden vicinity since 1979.

    The protesters are unhappy because the school has chosen to hire Peter Beck, aperson with white skin, over other, unidentified candidates, The Fresno Bee reports.

    Beck will teach African-American studies, Latino studies and Southeast Asian studies. . . .

    . . .“We’re just saying what the community wants,” said Rev. Karen Crozier, oneof the activists. “We didn’t fight for a white male or female teacher to educate our babies.”

    Crozier, who appears to be a professor at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, also suggested that a white person cannot teach minority children in this instance because of racism. . . .

    option 3 please!

    "Race is not a factor on a person's competency to teach anything."
    teaching will be about the competence, experience and ability of the person, not thier race.(also the peoples willingness to learn)

    any person may be very in touch or out of touch with this subject matter and assuming they actually will or will not based on skin color is just as dumb, dishonest and uneducated as thinking a minority can't be racist.

    Being individuals will say that no one has the same exact experiences, but with that said, black history does have its own special history hence the name black before the word history. I see nothing wrong with the recruiting of a well qualified black man to teach a course specific to Black American History if this community so desires.
