Hispanics are not the only new group in my school. There is also a modest population of Muslim “refugees” from the Middle East. Muslim students are better behaved and more academically adept than the illegals from Central and South America, and generally stick to themselves. They are far from perfect, though. From time to time you can overhear them talking in sympathetic tones about Islamic Fundamentalists, and how white girls are fun to have sex with, but should never be considered as a possibility for a girlfriend or a wife.
Racial tensions are always high at my school, and sometimes they explode. Not too long ago, the school caught wind of a group of black students planning a food fight after they advertised the event on Snapchat. In response, security was beefed up and announcements were made warning students not to participate in it or face consequences. This made no difference whatsoever. The battle was kicked off by a black teenager who threw a full can of soda at a school police officer, knocking her out cold. He high-fived his black friends when she hit the floor.
As food began flying through the air in every direction and fist-fights broke out, the nearly 1,500 students in the cafeteria spilled out into the hallways and then out of the building. En route, a substitute teacher was knocked down and trampled, earning her a broken leg. In my wing of the building, the one white security guard and I sent the students who were trying to escape the violence — most of them white — into my classroom to hide. Order was only restored when the SWAT team arrived.
The “outrage culture” the school is steeped in makes everything worse. Black teenagers are well versed in their victimhood status, and accusations of “racism” are never ending. If you are older and white, students assume the worst of you and go out of their way to disrupt your classes and say outrageous things about white people in order to provoke you. They are always trying to make you lose your cool and say something inappropriate — all while the students have the camera on their phones at the ready, waiting to document you at your worst. They are well aware that all it takes is one slip up to end a career.
Even earnest liberals sometimes end up being victims of politically correct sensitivity. At another school I worked in, a principal presented district test scores broken down by race to the school staff. The difference between whites and blacks was enormous, and he told us that we needed to work together to come up with innovative strategies to close this achievement gap. He was passionate, motivated, and really believed that if we just taught the right way, we could close this “unfair” and “racist” difference in average test scores. A black staffer then got in touch with the local NAACP, accusing the principal of racism simply for having acknowledged the gap, and the well-meaning principal was forced into retirement.
Affirmative action and “diversity” are both enforced in two ways: 1) Officially, by the administration and its policies. 2) Informally, through violence and chaos — either threatened or carried out — by the black students. For example, administrators tell teachers that every social media post, photo, video, brochure, etc. tied to the school must have non-white students in it. But when something accidentally doesn’t, it isn’t necessarily those administrators who dole out the punishment.
Recently, the school newspaper had a cover photo of our lacrosse team. The students in the photograph were all white. Since there were no black students in the picture, the newspaper was dubbed “so white,” and blacks used this as an excuse to misbehave for the entire day. In class, if the artwork or historical period being studied involves lots of whites, the black students act up in outrage until the class becomes unteachable, thereby incentivizing you to focus on “black” topics as much as possible.
Worst of all is the leniency black students are given in all disciplinary measures. The administrators are desperate to even out the statistics that show how much more frequently blacks are suspended and expelled relative to whites — or even Hispanics. The result is that black students are often given slaps on the wrist for heinous acts, while whites face lengthy suspensions for minor infractions. Moreover, if you write-up a black student or call his parents, friends of the troublemaker, in what they see as an act of solidarity, sometimes punish you for having done this by bursting into your classroom and causing a scene.
Black children seemed to be trained to deny responsibility for their actions from a very early age, even when caught in the act. I’ve seen children as young as five yelling, “I di’n’t do nufﬁn” as they were being carted off to the principal’s office. They know nothing is expected of them and act accordingly. They are hypnotized by their phones, spending most of the day on them trying to become social media starlets. None of them ever bring their own school supplies, knowing they will get them for free from either the school or the naively generous white moms who donate them.
A concerted pushback against all of this madness could, in theory, be brought about by a group of experienced, dedicated teachers and staff. But racial preferences in hiring make creating such a group impossible. My district has minority recruiting fairs even as they make huge layoffs. They’ll take just about anyone if they are brown. The current assistant principal, for example, sometimes seems like she’s functionally illiterate — her assistants have to help her write official documents. But since she isn’t white, she receives nothing but praise and accolades to go with her hefty salary.
The small number of whites who attend my school have it the worst. They get attacked, robbed, and verbally berated on a regular basis by their “peers.” Many white students suffer from anxiety and self-esteem issues, leading to problems with drugs and self-harm. Given the anti-white bias in the teaching curriculum — which is steadily getting worse — it isn’t hard to understand why this is happening. Some parents manage to be oblivious to it all or turn a blind eye to it. More often, they’re just too poor to move to a district where their children aren’t subjected to this type of violence and degradation.
Our society denies the role of race in schools. All dissent is met with accusations of racism, public shunning, and the threat of financial ruin. But doing nothing means whites must condemn their own flesh and blood to the nightmare I’ve described — and we have a duty to protect the future for our children.
