Another crisis of color: New York City's seven elite high schools are swarming with white and yellow students–because they are the ones who scored highest on the entrance test. Unlike the teacher celebrated in the movie "Stand and Deliver," who taught poor Hispanic students to pass the grueling AP calculus exam, the teachers' union and their legislative butt-licks have a different solution: dumb down the entrance requirements. Reject some of the white and yellow students who ace the exam in favor of some who don't, but have a different hue.
In other words, tell black and Hispanic students that they are intellectually inferior and cannot properly earn their places.
These are the words of the great visionary, Martin Luther King:
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Sorry, Dr. King. We will judge them by the color of their skin–but we'll call it "diversity."
Above all, let's let the teachers' union tighen their grip on the school system. If teachers are judged on their performance, and not the color of their tenured contracts, they too may find themselves looking for other institutions. Why don't teachers rise up against the mediocrity their union champions? Where is their pride?
The demise of the species draws nearer.
