Under our supposedly postracial president, everything is all about race — including school discipline, which Obama has decreed will be meted out according to skin color:
President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.
The obvious point is to reward a privileged group that is more likely to behave disruptively. One of the many ham-fisted executive orders through which Obama rules specifically states that “African Americans … disproportionately experience school discipline.” Therefore, they are to be rewarded with lighter punishment. Belonging to a group whose members are less likely to behave like criminal savages will be correspondingly punished.
Reward bad behavior, punish good behavior, and be prepared to blame “racists” when the inevitable results are catastrophic. This is liberal social engineering in a nutshell.
The policy has the added advantage that it will generate resentment toward blacks, which is crucial in propping up an ideology that relies so heavily on the almost entirely imaginary specter of anti-black racism.
It would be nice to think that anyone who voted for a black radical leftist thinking that it would move us toward a colorblind society has at least learned from the foolish mistake. But then, it would be nice to think that we still lived in a sane world, where someone clearly hostile to America and the majority of its people would never be elected in the first place.
