South Carolina’s scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) were released earlier this week and as usual the news was not good …
Students at government-run schools in the Palmetto State continue to lag well behind their peers – trailing the national average by 17 points in critical reading, 30 points in math and 28 points in writing. The sad part? These numbers look positively sterling compared to the SAT performance of South Carolina’s black student population – which is almost exclusively housed in failing or below average government-run school districts (ed by corrupt black leaders, in many cases).
According to the latest SAT data, black students in South Carolina scored a 408 in critical reading (71 points below the state’s mean score), 418 in math (66 points below the state’s mean score) and 384 in writing (76 points below the state’s mean score).
Yeah … OUCH.
Ready for the irony? Black leaders in the S.C. General Assembly are the ones fighting aggressively to keep lower-income South Carolina school children trapped in the schools producing these abysmal results.
Not only did black leaders oppose universal choice legislation (helping kill it by one vote in the S.C. House of Representatives in 2012), they fought against the adoption of small-scale special needs scholarships.
In fact they are still fighting against those scholarships … which were approved as part of the FY 2012-13 state budget.
Black school children are being left behind in South Carolina government-run schools by the tens of thousands. And black leaders are doing absolutely nothing about it.
It’s time for that to change …
Why is it only up to black leaders to be concerned about black students?
Because they sure as hell don’t give a damn about anything white.
“government-run schools” 3 more times! I may have to get a second jar to hold all the dollar bills. Now if I start tracking “exclusively” the money will really pile up.
White students are being held back by these animals. There are numerous studies showing that blacks have a lower IQ than the rest of the population.
Segregation will fix SC schools. It worked for 400 years. The last 50 years of desegregation has been a disaster.
I strongly disagree with everything you said except the part about the IQ scores. That’s the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about — but it is the most significant reason for these results. When you combine that with a culture that often disrespects academic achievement, you get the results that you see above.
Would you send your children to a school where the majority of students were black? I hope not. That would be child abuse.
And if your agree about the IQ scores, why don’t you agree that white students (who have higher IQs) are held back by blacks? Curriculums have to be “dumbed down” for the low IQ blacks. This keeps white students from reaching their full potential.
I’m going to have a hard time agreeing with much of what you say when you call blacks “animals” that need to be segregated from white people — as if your race is the only determining factor in the quality of the person. I would prefer that schools have realistic programs where some are trained to learn trades, while others are placed in more advanced classes. If you perform well, you move up. If you don’t, then they should still be educated but the goals should be adjusted accordingly.
Schlomo, understand this, you racist piece of excrement. It is readily apparent from your comments and your phraseology that you need a lesson in the “everything is relative” principle. You are certainly wrong in your basic premise, but more importantly, I wouldn’t want my kids in school with you. There is no doubt you would dumb down their experience.
Sometimes the truth hurts doesn’t it. Ask any public school teacher that you know what would greatly improve their classroom, kicking lazy, sleeping in class black kids out would be right up there.
Maybe they should just kick out lazy, sleeping kids regardless of color.
TBG’s Legal Term of the Day:
I had a girlfriend with Disparate Impact, but the doctors couldn’t heal her, because they couldn’t use discriminating mycins.
You have to be careful these days. When you get involved with a girl you have to know her health history. The best way is to look through her medicine cabinet. One guy did this but when he opened up her medicine cabinet, it was empty. Panicking, he thought, “Damn, I don’t know what she’s got, but whatever it is, there’s no cure for it!”
Oh no! You called me a racist! I’m surprised you didn’t call me an ignorant bigot too.
Everything is relative, huh? What have Africans ever contributed to the world, relative to European societies? Africans are still burning witches and practicing voodoo, whereas whites are exploring space. Sub-Saharan African never invented the wheel or their own written language, while whites and Asians invented every modern luxury. When it comes to IQ, blacks have a MUCH lower IQ, relative to just about every other race. Is that relative enough for you?
Everyone needs to read this:
It’s a white teacher’s experience of teaching at a predominately black school.
Careful with that crap about “never invented the wheel”, Kemosabe!
Why you ignorant pompous ass. Africa is the cradle of civilization. Who gave the world mathematics? Who built the pyramids? Africa was a thriving civilization when whites were living in caves in northern Europe. If you knew anything about history, you would know some of these facts. Your white history only comes into play during and after the Roman empire. If you really are serious, read your Bible. The Garden of Eden was in Africa. Find the rivers spoken of in the bible and they certainly are not in Europe. Since the Roman Empire, World history has been slanted towards white people. Hell, white people have even changed the Lord Jesus to be blond and blue eyes.. He was a Jew. His hair was like wool. His feet was bronze. Read for yourself and be amazed. The only dumbing down of society and changing of history is by white civilizations. The truth hurts. It also enlightens. A black woman was the mother of all humans. From a black woman’s womb, all races came into being. the different hues and colors, even white. A white woman could not produce all these colors of humanity. Two white people only produce more white people. Unless she mates with a man of a different color. The truth does hurt, Racism is a bitter pill…
I don’t want to take up for Schlomo, because I agree that he is an “ignorant pompous ass,.” But to be fair, the accomplishments of which you speak were in North Africa, which would probably be more appropriately identified as Mediterranean culture and civilization rather than what we generally think of as “African” culture and civilization.
Not taking up for Schlomo, either. TBG suspects he is, in fact, a Hymietown* member of the tribe. The only “Schlomo” that TBG knows is his great uncle (on his mom’s side) Schlomo Yellowfeather.
Africa is the cradle of civilization.
Africa is not “the cradle of civilization”; usually that is considered to be the Fertile Crescent. Africa is the cradle of humanity, which is perhaps what you meant.
The Garden of Eden was in Africa. Find the rivers spoken of in the bible and they certainly are not in Europe.
[Your third grade geography teacher has been rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive…with an empty bottle of sleeping pills nearby.] You’re correct, they are not in Europe. But, they are in the Middle East (Asia).
Who gave the world mathematics?
Hindis? Chinese? Sumerians?
Who built the pyramids?
The forebears of modern day Egyptians. Certainly they were/are African…but this discussion is really about sub-Saharan Africans.
[Jesus]… was a Jew. His hair was like wool. His feet was bronze.
You are (finally) right about something! Preach it, brotha!
* Hymietown is RAINBOW/PUSH Coalition founder Jessie Jackson’s word, NOT TBG’s!
Sumer / the Congo — what’s the difference?
Sumer / the Congo — what’s the difference?
Hell nothing good comes out of Africa. Tropical waves start on the coast of Africa and they turn into Hurricanes. People are just sick of those black white blue (oh he just died) or whatever other group who F$#&*&^ it up for the rest of us. Black’s just happen to be leading the pack with the chaos.
No, I meant the cradle of civilization. Your history lessons still comes from the European influence. Even your sub- Saharan comment. The continent of Africa has been raped and pillaged since the onslaught of European Influence. The world owes its wealth to Africa. It is still a pity that any human being thinks he or his race is superior to another. We all have our gifts and they should be in harmony with each other. In all the lessons of history, we still forget from one generation to the next. Greed is a terrible friend. There is enough wealth in the world that no human being should be hungry or destitute. Greed has polluted the minds of men and a very few rich and powerful men in all countries contrive and succeed in hoarding the wealth of the world for their own. And we learn nothing…..
Africa is the cradle of civilization.
TBG is always ready to learn something new. Please cite some sources.
There was a report of a Han Chinese couple who gave birth to a white skinned, blue eyed baby with curly blond locks. The husband filed for divorce claiming that…
wait for it….
Two Wongs don’t make a white.
What have YOU contributed Mr. Shlomo? Your life must suck if you have to achieve self-validation through your race and ancestry rather than your own accomplishments.
Schlomo’s ethnicity has accounted for a hugely disproportionate number of scientific, medical, and comedic advances, as well as Nobel prizes.
Careful on the comedic advances. Richard Pryor might have something to say about that.
Officer, all I did was tell the fine young gentlemen, “You’re two blocks passed it!”
It’s all here:
Black legislators in South Carolina are Uncle Toms. Instead of working to lift up their constituents to a higher quality of life, they all keep their heads down, work with white legislators to pass white legislators’ agendas, and really have no agenda of their own. The Legislative Black Caucus is a do-nothing organization, and its members’ most pressing interest is not constituents but rather re-election. Gilda Cobb-Hunter is a nice lady on the LBC but is typical of LBC members. She derives her (hefty) income from a state government social program. The blacks in South Carolina haven’t figured this out yet.
good schools won’t help the test results…just look at Irmo High School. Demographics shifted and the scores plummeted. hmmmmm
Yeah, but the football team got better cornerbacks and running backs.
I graduated from Irmo a little over 20 years ago. Back then it was something to be proud of. I will admit that I did graduate in the bottom quarter of my class, but back then I really didn’t give a shit about grades.
Black or white, all legislators are equally uncaring to their citizens, black or white. That being said, saying private schooling scams would help minority students is ignoring many things, such as whether or not private schools would take them in, if they would do any better of a job than public schools, or if it would even matter if they did. There’s also the matter of problems that come with kids growing up in poverty, in bad homes, in bad neighborhoods, etc., which often times minority children are more prone to experience.
Whether you believe in “school choice” or not, there’s no way in hell private schooling can make up for what a kid experiences outside of the schooling itself. Minority or not, disadvantaged kids need more than just a school book that prints a better explanation of the second amendment, or a curriculum that isn’t administered by a government institution.
“Wake Up”… is it noon already? Is the mailman here with my government check? Is my baby daddy here for a nooner?
The baby daddy never comes back around. It would be the “next” baby daddy. Often a single negro woman will have 5 or more fathers of her 8 or so children.
TBG’s gotst fanbois!
Is yo babydaddy 9″?
Don’t you get 800 points just for putting your name on the damned thing?
WAKE UP,SC RASCIST HONKY PECKERWOOD BLOGGERS
The scores are not so astounding when one considers Sic Willie keeps his face pressed against the TV screen so he hear Ben Stephens first and bring it to you to help. Don’t be fooled by la,te da attitude embrace.
Tom Davis hates black students.
There is not a single elected official in the State of South Carolina who wants educated, informed, motivated voters
It is not in their best interests
Black children are at an extreme disadvantage – they are born into black families. That means, on average, they will have no father. Often they will be the daughter of a daughter of a daughter of a baby momma, and Gramama will raise them, while mamma is off creating their siblings. Their peers will think one of her is an animal, generally suited only for mating, perhaps to be shared with the boys in her peer group. The boys, for their part will see weakness in learning of a wider world, inventing their own language which sets them even further apart from that world which, at least, would have given them a chance at honest riches and advancement.
These are learned things. Call them “cultural.” But they are also protected things. Protected by elected officials who have made guilt their greatest weapon. And what will be their legacy? Bodies, mostly. Bodies of murder, rape, forgetfulness, vendetta, anger, and hatred.
And the politicians will continue to be re-elected, and their constituents will continue to live in their slough of despond. Only there will be no progress, because there will be no pilgrims – just constituents.
That’s well said. I could not agree more. Blacks are at a major disadvantage due to lack of family structure. They mate like rabbits.
But, TBG is sincerely flattered.
Ignorance vs Stupidity
The intrinsic difference is that ignorance simply implies lack of awareness about something, while stupidity denotes the inability of a person to understand something due to insufficient intelligence, thus leading to the misinterpretation of a fact.
Show me a black child raised by caring parents with good jobs that do not fall for the pipe or the lottery (like many other poor folks) and I’ll show you a kid with a good IQ. The smartest teacher I ever had was black and was a teacher of the year in NC (chemistry). Look at your local crack lord, he or she had the brains to figure out how to survive in a bad enviroment. If we subscribe to common wingnut theory Asians beat everyone out. Don’t knock any population segment until you live in their shoes (for 100s of years).
You, of course, realize that your example indicates that IQ is (at least partly) heritable.
TBG strongly recommends that everyone, no matter where they stand, read Charles Murray’s The Bell Curve.
Generally, “a black child raised by caring parents with good jobs” is being raised by two black parents who have comparatively higher IQs than their counterparts, and they have passed their genes to their child. There is a reason the parents have those good jobs.
There are blacks with high IQs, and your teacher was obviously one of them, but they are the exception to the general rule. Black americans have an average IQ of 85 compared to 100 for whites. In studies with adopted children of different races raised by white middle-class families, the average IQ for both black and white kids is bumped up about 4-5 points, but the spread between black and white stays the same.
All these Comments?
Good God,If Blacks just knew what was good for them and voted Republican, everything would be fine,
TBG believes that Schlomo and all the other “Goldsteins’ that suddenly popped up are probably really WASPs, like Randolph and Mortimer Duke.
