We should also note hat the Left insists that race is nothing but a social construct - except when they can use it for their advantage. .
"How discipline is doled out in the classroom now will be under much closer scrutiny by the federal government, but some analysts say the Obama administration’s efforts ultimately may backfire and could lead to de facto racial quotas in American schools.
The Education Department and the Justice Department on Wednesday issued new “guidance” to ensure minority students aren’t punished through suspension, expulsion or other means more than their white peers. The administration cited legal authority under Titles IV and VI in offering detailed rules for how school districts can administer discipline.
It’s part of a larger effort — backed by teachers unions, civil rights advocacy groups and other organizations — to combat the “school-to-prison pipeline,” in which minority students are disproportionately kicked out of school and subsequently end up in the criminal justice system.......
In plain terms, it means district rules, guidelines and enforcement cannot result in the punishment of more black students than white students for the same offense, for example.
With that in mind, school leaders surely will keep a close eye on whether the same number of children from given racial groups are disciplined in equal number and equal measure for the same behavior.
“You have to make certain that your school discipline cases match those percentages. If you don’t, you’ll have the feds on your doorstep,” said Joshua Dunn, a political science professor at the University of Colorado and director of the university’s Center for Legal Studies. “If they actually do enforce these guidelines, there will be unintended consequences. This creates some rather destructive incentives. I don’t think there’s any way around that.”
Chief among those negative incentives, Mr. Dunn said, will be that teachers, principals and other school personnel may hesitate to punish a minority student for a particular offense out of fear that they will appear prejudiced or that their actions will result in disproportionate effects on one racial group.
Taken to the extreme, such a scenario could lead to even bigger problems, some specialists say.
“Eventually, you’ll have disorder in schools. … They either suspend white students for relatively trivial things or they don’t punish black students for behavior that is really disruptive or even violent,” said Hans Bader, a senior attorney at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “You’re effectively commanding them to have racial quotas” with respect to which students are disciplined and how often.........."
"Now let's not forget that we can only discipline no more than four blacks per month, so we must exercise extreme caution in our choices of events that will result in suspensions. We will also have to to ensure that sufficient whites are disciplined to keep out statistics safe from scrutiny".
The Left will get exactly what they want - more disorder, more oppressed "privileged" whites, and more blacks who wind up in jail.
Even a cursory reading of history will reveal that the Left will always craft a plan that they know will accomplish the opposite of what they purport to desire. Once the results come in and can no longer be denied, they will then assert that "we did not go far enough" and demand further restrictions on school officials. This in turn will only pave the way for the next step.
Blacks and Hispanics, while being soothed with the assurances that the American Left is on their side, will be used as tools to further erode order in schools and the rest of society.
The Duke University Lacrosse rape case, a tragedy in which despite the fact that the alleged victim was proven many times over early in the case to have been lying, is another case in point from criminal and political standpoints. The prosecutor/district attorney, being an elected official in North Carolina, refused to drop the charges even though there was no possible way that he still believe that the black dancer had in fact been raped by the college students. Blacks in the region were being fed a train of lies in order to garner more votes.
