Walter E Williams: Educational Sabotage


Nationally, black junior high and high school students are suspended at a rate more than three times as often as their white peers, twice as often as their Latino peers and more than 10 times as often as their Asian peers. According to former Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, the "huge disparity is not caused by differences in children; it's caused by differences in training, professional development, and discipline policies. It is adult behavior that needs to change."

Multiculturalism Trumps Protecting Women From Rape

by Dennis Prager.   Since the scores of New Year's Eve sexual attacks on German women by hundreds of men identified as Arab or North African, the left in Germany has faced a dilemma: which to fight for first -- women's human rights or multiculturalism? This was the same dilemma that faced British authorities between 1997 and 2013. During those  ... MORE

Walter E Williams: The Cancer Of Multiculturalism

The false premise of moral relativism.  President Barack Obama surprised many at the National Prayer Breakfast when he lectured us, "Lest we get on our high horse and think this (barbarity) is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ." Obama went  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: 'Diversity' In Action

Not all cultures are compatible.  Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe, and European governments' counter-attacks are more than just a passing news story. Europe is currently in the process of paying the price for years of importing millions of people from a culture hostile to the fundamental values of Western culture. And this is by no means the last     ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Multiculturalism Is A Failure

Western culture and values are superior.     German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that in Germany, multiculturalism has "utterly failed." Both Australia's ex-prime minister John Howard and Spain's ex-prime minister Jose Maria Aznar reached the same conclusion about multiculturalism in their countries. British Prime Minister      ...

Is There Anything More American Than Bob Dylan Doing a Patriotic Super Bowl Ad for a Foreign-Owned Carmaker?

by Nick Gillespie.      Absolutely not. And that's kind of wonderful. Bob Dylan's controversial Super Bowl ad for Chrysler opens with the Maestro himself asking, “Is there anything more American than America?” It’s the sort of koan-like, WTF riddle that defines his most memorable music. Dylan is the master of the rhetorical question, whether       ... MORE

NYC Mayor To Close City Schools For Muslim Holidays

Political correctness run amok.     New York Mayor Bill De Blasio will close city schools for two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year. The New York Daily News reported: New York City is moving to close school for two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year — but Mayor de Blasio isn’t so sure about the Hindu festival Diwali. But he said he’d move     ...  MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Reality Versus Mirages In Egypt

So far, the mirages seem to be winning.      Nothing symbolizes the Utopianism of our times like both liberals and some conservatives calling for us to cut off aid to the Egyptian military, because of the widespread killings in what is becoming a civil war in Egypt. Such utter lack of realism from the left is not new, but hearing some  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Words That Replace Thought

In doing so, they turn smart people into morons.  If there is ever a contest for words that substitute for thought, “diversity” should be recognized as the undisputed world champion. You don’t need a speck of evidence, or a single step of logic, when you rhapsodize about the supposed benefits of diversity. The very idea of testing this   ... MORE

Robert Higgs: ABC's For Today's Public School Students

A is for Alzheimer’s Disease.    If you eat lots of vegetables and floss your teeth, you will live a long time and get this condition as your reward. B is for Baconator. If thou shouldst ever eat one, thou shalt surely die. C is for Crumbling Infrastructure, an incantation government officials mutter when they want to spend more of the public’s money   ... MORE
