discipline is typically left up to the vp in middle and high schools, not sure about elementary schools, but you're right it begins with the teacher.

If teachers are more likely to send black kids to the office (to get the punishment ball rolling) than white kids for the same offenses, then again, that's a big problem.

This is exactly what happens in the criminal justice system. Minorities receive harsher sentences for the same crimes, especially when it comes to capital punishment. They are also disproportionately targeted by police.

No reason to believe it's any different in schools.

And that can be easily proved by statistics. You can see who was charged with crimes and the subsequent sentences they received.

In the school system, only those who get suspensions have anything put in their record. No statistics (that I'm aware of) are recorded for those that get off easy.

The same kind of bias has been shown in other societal hierarchies. Why would it be any different in the school system?

Here we go:

https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/why_teachers_are_more_likely_to_punish_black_students

Quote :
"Two students. One is black and the other is white. On Tuesday, they both refuse to complete the math worksheet. On Wednesday, neither will stop talking during lessons.

Same behavior. Will they receive the same punishment?

A new Stanford University study predicts that the black student will be punished more harshly. Why? Not because of overt racism. Rather, harsher discipline might be the result of unconscious partiality to the white student, a phenomenon called “implicit bias” by psychologists. The study also finds that the bias might be just as likely to come from a black teacher as a white one."

So it seems like several hundreds of years of black slavery has rewired people's brains, even those of at least some blacks to be more favorable towards whites...?

"PAMELA SUTTERFIELD: I am stunned that this letter was sent out to anyone. I thought we were moving forward but about 9 or 10 years ago it seemed like something was trying to tear all of that apart. This letter only emphasizes a difference in color stating one is better than another. There is still racism and may always be. There is racism in the black community as well as the white. Someone is always going to appear better than another. Is the letter meant to make whites ashamed of who they are by starting with the young children? It serves no purpose. I was just looking at documentary about Hitler and the Jews. Hitler told his people they were better than anyone else. Are you trying to repeat history?"

^^^Yes.

And dtownral, why do you say that this is rare form, even for me?

I mean I'm basically agreeing that we can prove these types of biases in school. But I also think that a no tolerance policy, which would take subjectivity out of the equation, would not be the way to go either. A no tolerance policy would end up giving harsher punishments to everyone...similar to how our criminal justice system metes out punishments for drug violations.

White asshole (probably a Trumpet) takes over a Nigerian female passenger's seat (crew sides with him), then harasses the same passenger, and finally gets her kicked off by complaining she is "pungent" and that he can't share the plane with her, even though they weren't seated together.

^^^That reminds me of The Gods Must Be Crazy.

The bushman can't get over how much food it must take to sustain the tall, blonde woman who is ostensibly "pretty" and "attractive" by our standards.

Quote :
"That morning, Xi saw the ugliest person he'd ever come across. She was as pale as something that had crawled out of a rotting log. Her hair was quite gruesome; long and stringy and white, as if she was very old. She was very big - you'd have to dig the whole day to find enough food to feed her."

more details: http://www.startribune.com/minneapolis-daycare-provider-who-hanged-toddler-from-noose-to-be-sentenced/488290231/

Quote :
"Sabir said he heard a baby crying in the basement and ran downstairs to find the child hanging from a noose made of girls’ tights tied to an overhead pipe. He grabbed the child and ran out of the house.

Karia then fled in her minivan, rear-ending a car on W. 28th Street at Grand Avenue, shoving that vehicle into another car.

When the driver of the first car, 37-year-old Salvador Lema, got out to check the damage, Karia pulled into traffic and dragged him for 10 blocks. At W. 28th and Park Avenue, her van struck 29-year-old bicyclist Jacob Carrigan. He suffered broken bones and had to have a rod surgically implanted in his leg to spare him amputation.

Karia later struck another car driven by a pregnant woman before pulling over near the Park Avenue overpass above Interstate 94, where she threatened to jump. Passersby held her down until police could take her into custody."


Quote :
"Karia waived mental illness as a defense and “admitted she acted with intent to kill the 16-month-old boy in her care” along with severely injuring three other people that day."


Quote :
"The three people Karia injured provided impact statements during a May hearing. One young woman still has traumatic flashbacks, remains in rehab and could face surgery for her injuries still. A man dragged under the minivan for several blocks said he lost jobs because of severe injuries to his feet. The bicyclist Karia hit said he was depressed and couldn’t work for nearly four months after the incident."

Today's shitbag update: Everybody's favorite Brock, Brock Turner is asking that his attempted rape conviction get overturned due to the fact that he just wanted to have, ahem, outercourse, with the unconscious woman, not intercourse.

Quote :
"Back in December, San Jose’s Mercury News reported that Brock Turner, the former Stanford swimmer who spent a mere three months in jail after being convicted on charges of assaulting and attempting to rape an intoxicated woman, was appealing this decision.

On Tuesday, Turner’s lawyer, Eric Multhaup, attempted to convince an appellate court that his client’s conviction should be overturned on the grounds that Turner wanted “outercourse” with his victim, not intercourse. Multhaup went on to furnish a description of “outercourse” which he defined as fully-clothed sexual contact. According to the Mercury News’ report Multhaup was focused specifically on trying to get Turner’s attempted rape conviction reversed.

Mercury News reported that the panel of justices, who have 90 days to issue a ruling, “appeared skeptical of [Multhaup’s] argument.” Justice Franklin D. Elia said in response to the lawyer’s display, “I absolutely don’t understand what you are talking about.”

In March 2016, Turner was found guilty of three felony counts stemming from his assault of a woman during a Kappa Alpha frat party in January, 2015. The conviction was based upon accounts from witnesses who said they saw Turner thrusting his hips on top of an unconscious, partially clothed woman. Although he didn’t serve much time, as a result of his conviction Turner has to register as a sex offender fo the rest of his life.

Michele Dauber, the Stanford law school professor who spearheaded the campaign to recall Judge Aaron Persky after he handed down Turner’s absurdly lenient sentence, told Mercury New on Tuesday, “Now [Turner] has a brand new story. It’s inappropriate to ask the appeals court to substitute its judgment for the jury.”"

Unwanted "outercourse" is still unwanted, hence, the charges should stick.

Officer wins suit over claim he was mocked for black ancestry

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45026755

Quote :
"A white US police officer who discovered he has sub-Saharan African ancestry through DNA testing has won a payout after claiming racial abuse.

Sergeant Cleon Brown, a police officer in Hastings, Michigan, sued the force after alleging his colleagues racially taunted him over his DNA test results.

He claims they mocked him after he revealed that he was 18-33% "sub-Saharan African".

Sgt Brown will now receive $65,000 (£49,000) from the city's insurers."

But...is it racist to say he shouldn't have received any money? I'm confused now.

He's an idiot though, because 65k might be more than he makes in a year, but it won't go far, and he'll probably have to leave the police force he works on, and I'm sure the stigma of this lawsuit will follow him wherever he goes.
