Student bodies more varied, but teachers still most likely white women

By Greg Toppo / USA TODAY

Fifteen years ago, nearly nine out of 10 public school teachers were white, and more than seven in 10 were women. Their classrooms were mostly white as well -- fewer than three in 10 were minorities.

Fast-forward to today.

Minority students account for four in 10 public school children. One in five speaks a language other than English at home, and one in four comes from a single-parent household.

But wait: There's still a white woman at the head of the class. She's a little better qualified, but, otherwise, the typical American teacher hasn't changed much.

Those poor students suffering under those white teachers.

Well, times are a'changin. Soon enough America will be as divided...er...diverse, as Lebanon was just before its Civil War and then America will have reached a state of true mulitcult shang-ri-la bliss. All an American has to do is find a Lebanese to tell him or her about what a wonderful future awaits us.

You know, that is a good point Gladstone.
I must make a point of asking some liberal exactly what they think will happen when we are all living in multi-cultural societies. Do they really believe everything will magically become utopian and blissful?
I suspect many are so caught up in taking the moral highground with us "bigots", that they haven't even seriously given thought to what the end results of their goals will be.

Yes, naively they do.


I suspect many are so caught up in taking the moral highground with us "bigots", that they haven't even seriously given thought to what the end results of their goals will be.
I look at them as religious fanatics very much in the medievel mode. The new witches to them are the "racist" which in their mind are the source of all evil. Then too is the fact that many of them (ie rad-libs, fellow travelers, etc) seem to have been eaten up by their hatreds as well as having become full of themselves (ie proud, arrogant) all helps make them blind to what they are creating, a hell on earth.
Our answer (I tend to think) is to be moral on all points and not to follow the very dangerous (for all involved) methedology that many of the rad-libs have fallen into, that is that the ends justify the means. What one regularly does one becomes and so if one to achieve goals regularly lies, cheats, steals, murders, etc...well, you get the picture.

Whatever happens, I think in a very broad sense they have already lost.

If they succeed, then we have all lost. That's the sad part, even us that oppose their madness will suffer because of it.
But trying to talk sense into a group of people so blinded by their ideaology is futile IMO. I truly believe that there is no-one as narrow-minded as a Liberal.

Good point. Excessive pride can do that to a person.

If we must rely on compromise, negotiations, and a diplomatic process, we have already lost. There is no doubt in my mind that course of actions that has been set for the past 30 years will continue to escalate until the average American is so befuddled and the truth is so contorted that we will be powerless to fight back using any sort of sophisticated methods. Too many of us are blinded by multiculturalism and the facade of the ZOG that they honestly believe in the shit they've been forced to eat. There is only one course of action that can make a true impact: violence. Diplomacy is dead.
