From Foon Rhee:
There is understandable fear in the land among many African American and Latino families about a Donald Trump presidency.
It’s not just incidents of racism and hate; it’s what his policies will mean for their well-being and for their children. So it’s a good time for a new study out this month that shows how much ground black and Latino children have to make up in California.That study shows white kids do better than Hispanics who do better than black kids. Left out is Asian kids do best.
So Foon Rhee's argument is that to prove he is not Hitler, President Trump must somehow magically equalize test scores among teh races.
My question is, if this were so important, why didn't President Obama do this?
Why didn't Foon Rhee get on Obama's case?
Why didn't Foon Rhee not mention that this happened on Obama's watch?
Why didn't Foon Rhee point out that despite 40 years of special federal Title 1 funding for kids in poor neighborhoods, kids in poor neighborhoods are now further behind in school than ever before?
Perhaps it is because he knows that Asian parents and Jewish parents ride herd on their kids. The pecking order in test scores reflects the amount of time spent on task by parents.
Those are stereotypes. Not every Asian parent gives a rat's ass, and overall, the majority of black parents do. But in general, this is what we see. And if we are going to raise racial disparities, we should go to the people who are most responsible -- parents, not presidents.
I am trying to think of the last president who sucked as a parent. Their kids seem to do fine, and graduate from college.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
