    re: Whites Need Not Apply?[W:68]

    Did you even read those articles? They range from the utterly absurd to being so heavily qualified that the results are essentially meaningless. Also those with an agenda to PROVE racism among white people are most likely quite capable of making what appears to be a scientific study produce that very result.

    Or you can go with us who have actually raised kids and watched them play with children of other races. You get a much clearer perspective that way.

    Absolutely. This story is the very definition of racist. Concerning, to say the least. This is unacceptable.

    I'd love to see Al Sharpton defend this.

Fifth link is about one university and cannot be held as a basis of a regular happening.

    The second link probably has the best argument, however again that is just one district. You cannot say all white teachers are not qualified to teach minorities or cultural studies based on that instance.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Oh, they get around to those if there is any time left over after the indoctrination.

    That does beg another question though as to whether cultural studies in themselves are racist. In my opinion they generally promote and encourage racism far more than they educate people. Cultural studies should be seamlessly integrated into the whole of American and world history which is how a whole lot of us learned about that. And I frankly have no worries about whether it is somebody who is black or white or Asian or Hispanic or American Indian who teaches the course if they are properly qualified to teach it. But these days I understand that American history is no longer part of the core curriculum in many schools? But cultural studies is.

    I don't have all the information but I don't think this case is racist. I don't think that the people arguing against this teacher is doing it explicitly because of his skin colour, but because has less exposure to the culture he is meant to be teaching.

    Of course their argument is still as ridiculous because there's no reason this white teacher hasn't studied other cultures his whole life and is incredibly knowledgable on them, but I think you have to make the distinction on the accusers part between "doesn't like the guy because his skin colour is white" and "doesn't like the guy because his skin colour indicates that he hasn't had the same exposure to the culture that he is meant to be teaching as the other candidates do".

    Just based on the recent posts in this thread, it's probably the new guy, Warwulf.

    I know. I PMed Red A to ask him if he could fix it. Don't know if he's still around though. Can you fix it? Sorry about that everybody--I failed to check the multiple choice option before I hit the post button.

    My point was just the opposite. Black "students" are merely bodies that occupy a space in school and distract the teacher from doing a job. Perhaps the metal detectors, armed guards, police patrolling the halls and gang rapes of white students on the rise are enough examples. Perhaps graffiti, gangs, increased drugs, bullying, affirmative action and murders are sufficient for segregation. Then the blacks can study as they will and have no whites to blame when they again, epically FAIL.
