    So it is a body of government in the sense of political theory and constitutional laws would apply. These standards of non discrimination are higher than for the private sector.

    Schools are allowed to recruit teachers that reflect their demographic population. As a matter of fact, in MA, it is mandated in districts under a law that was passed decades ago.

    That is an interesting restriction of non discrimination.

    What had happened in the past is that school districts had virtually no minorities teaching. Many of the people hiring were not minorities so that in itself posed a problem because many voiced they did not want to hire minorities during desegregation, so they set a specific quota but I don't know it. I could look it up if you want.

    No, you need not look it up, but this has been interesting.

    I think rabbit might be confusing Affirmative Action laws with something else here. But in any case, it is prejudicial, discriminatory, and racist to reject a teacher for no other reason than the color of his skin.

    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. . . .

    Rediculous. The race of the teacher has no bearing. Have they ever heard of Michael Pfleger? Egyptologists don't have to be from Egypt. Oncologists shouldn't have to be cancer survivors.

    I do think when it comes to being a church minister, he should be a Christian but this is the kind of think that gives minority cultural celebrations and studies a bad name.

    You have not countered a single one of my points, you have not even made an attempt to do so. In 6+ posts, not a single mention of any part of the debate.

    You're just spamming nonsense. Let me know when you'd like to address an argument.
