    Whites Need Not Apply?[W:68]

    So here we are. Who agrees that a white man cannot teach cultural studies? And can a black man teach Latino and SoutheastAsian studies if a white man cannot teach black studies? Or has the world gone absolutely nuts?

    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. . . .

    It does certainly seem racist to me, but i'm white, so I might be biased on this issue.

    I saw the video of this woman and her supporters in LiveLeak yesterday. She was blatantly racist and I couldn't believe that she may actually get her way on this. They demanded special courses, which they were given, and now they demand that only certain races are qualified to teach them? As if white people are not qualified to teach?

    Reverse the names of the races and see what would happen.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I don't think your race makes you any more biased than anybody else's race makes them biased. We choose our biases. It isn't something we're born with.

    Clearly the professor with "white skin" is a racist. If you disagree with the black people that don't want him, YOU are a racist. Heck if you are white you are racist.

    It IS racist. Even by "institutionalized racism" arguments. Here you have black leaders who are in positions of authority demanding that a white person be replaced....because he's white. I'd LOVE to see the apologists try and argue past this one.

    Jesus. WTH can people not learn to see past skin color?

    That occurred to me too. If white parents had objected to a black man teaching cultural studies to THEIR kids, I'm pretty sure that would have made the front page headlines across the nation.

    I'm going to go out on a branch here and guess that someone who says

    “We didn’t fight for a white male or female teacher to educate our babies.”
    is probably racist.

    BTW, you messed up on the poll. Its not multiple choice like your poll title says. I chose "Race is not a factor on a person's competency to teach anything" since that is more important imo.
