So, who cares if the kids are being taught by qualified individuals, as long as there is a black person teaching them. There are significantly less black people in college and do you really think that a lot of blacks are going to go into education? No. The problem with the poor black souls that go into post-secondary institutions is that the sheer fact that they either choose a really hard/high income major and fail miserably and drop out...OR...they major in something really really really easy such as sociology.

The majority of blacks that I know do not possess enough patience and self control to educate others. La must have sub-par teaching standards for certification and that is a shame all in itself.

Teaching is a rewarding job and career, but I have never seen a school so far that has 40% black teachers; In order for this school district to meet this repugnant goal set by this idiot of a judge, they'll have to hire half of the black teachers in the state.

If the color of a teacher means more than their qualifications to the NAACP and district parents, I would pull my child out of that district and send them to a private school/another district in a heart beat.

I just hope this was not brought about by a black individual who applied for a position and was turned down due to lack of qualification or the lowest qualified. I would not put it past a black person to do this and cause all this ruckus.
