I don’t know about you, but I tend to think that all racism is bad. There’s no point in claiming that every unique ethnic group has been subject to the same degree of widespread racism as every other group, it is nonetheless still foolish to claim that only one group can be the recipient of racism.
Currently, white males are the newest demographic being discriminated against because of the color of their skin.
Racism and how it expresses itself in our culture is a highly complex issue, no doubt. But one thing is straightforward: we either oppose it, or we don’t. And being discriminated against by schools and universities because you are white or Asian is most certainly not the same as being raised on a plantation as the property of another human being, it is undeniably still racism.
A program for high-performing Boston students has been suspended for a year because the participants were simply too white and Asian, according to Boston’s PBS station WGBH-TV.
“There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Schools Superintendent Brenda Cassellius told GBH News.
“There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be anti racist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”
Yup—they’d really rather every member of this young generation be stupid rather than provide an opportunity to those who have worked hard to set themselves apart. Call it the new equality where every student remains stupid.
“So, it’s not enough that a public school system offers a free education — a literally priceless gift that can make success possible in any field of human endeavor,” the Western Journal’s Joe Saunders astutely noted.
“What liberals require is apparently that a public school system guarantee that academic success is appropriately proportioned — meaning that the composition of advanced courses that require natural aptitude, dedicated students and a home life where educational achievement is central must be equally attended by students in proportion to their ethnic population in the school system.”
This is truly chilling stuff—and it is a disgrace to our education system.
According to WGBH, while the Boston Public Schools have a population that is 80 percent black and Hispanic, the Advanced Work Classes for high-performing students had a population that was 70 percent white or Asian.
Now, let that sink in—there are 30% Hispanic or black students in this program who are now being deprived of an advantage they no doubt worked hard for and, by liberal logic, are by default of the color of their skin in dire need of advantage, right?
Boston Public Schools has gone beyond the already discriminatory and problematic affirmative action by trying to even the playing field and deprive some white and Asian students of this opportunity to make room for more black and Hispanic kids.
No, they’re just not letting anyone with high academic potential benefit from this program.
How does that make any sense at all? It doesn’t have to, however. It’s today’s liberalism.
