In related news, a ripple effect of bedwetting among liberals is causing concern.

So what is it that makes this test offensive?
That it is 40 years old?
That it was made by an African American "Adrian Dove"?
It was called the Dove Counterbalance General Intelligence Test. It was designed to demonstrate differences in understanding and culture between races, specifically between African Americans and Whites. However I do not know anything about the class that was being taught. But I know that just by Googling that info I learned things I didn't know. I do not understand how it is an insult to the black Community. I don't understand how it is going to fan Racial Flames. I think the teacher was doing there job. However it might of worked better in a College course rather than high school where you have whinny Lazy Kids and Parents who enable them.

Racism is real and you do still have a few that are racist. But if we as Parents would allow our children to be taught about the past. And allow friendships between races and stop throwing out the racism card every time we turn around. Our Children would learn about the mistakes of the past and move forward into the future.

This here is a good example of why integration was one of the worst things that ever happened to this country.

We've fraternized and fornicated with the lesser races for so long that we've become just as stupid as them.

Look at all those guilty White liberals in that video. Holding hands and praying because of a "Chitlin Test".

Welcome to the modern era where you're now supposed to be ashamed of your beautiful White heritage. Kiss this country goodbye, folks. We've turned it into a third world spookocracy.

People need to quit being a bunch of cry babies. Everything anymore is a racist thing.What if a black teacher had done this then nobody would of being calling the race card. If blacks are so worried about their race then why is there so many mixed children in this world. If you don't like whites then stay within your race. I know that blacks were treated badly but most of this generation hasn't been. So they need to quit crying about it.

Well said. I as well believe the teacher had every good intention. The test was nothing more than a creative teaching aid. The past can not be ignored or erased. As you stated if we do not let our children learn from our past mistakes, then history could repeat itself. People complain about education yet when a teacher attempts to teach children to think outside the lines ,events like this occur. Ignoring the past does not make it go away but only helps fuel the flames for another day. I'm ashamed the school board was so quick to react and did not understand the teachers intent. Next they will not be able to mention Jews and the holocaust or radicals Muslims and sept 11. History is history, trying to deny teaching it is nothing more than reverse discrimination and placing politics ahead of education. Racism is and will all ways be part of our society, from races.

If a certain "mom" and I use the term lightly, would keep her ass out of everyone's business then things would be simpler. She is a fence rider. Country white when convenient, and ghetto black when convenient. Any possible time she can play a race card or be the face of a controversy she will yet behind the scenes she speaks out of the other side of her mouth. This test may indeed be inappropriate, but it was developed by a black man to be given to a diverse class. That was the point. Stone had to say it was disgusting because if anyone seems in any way to he tolerant of anything that hurts the poor suppressed black people then they are subject to penalty. Its just stupid. The blacks and the black lovers keep racism alive and well. I'm a black advocate for our rights but this is just over the top. STOP BEING SO SENSITIVE. By doing so we look very fragile, and please Mrs T, nose out.

I personally knew the teacher, he is an amazing teacher and a great man....The fact that he is being punished because of a test that wasn't his own words.....These kids now a days are way too sheltered and we wonder why they have no drive in life. This is ridiculous, racism will always be a topic as long as we make it one. I went to west Caldwell, love the school and love the teacher. This is embarrassing as a town that the subject in an APP college psychology class has been taken to this level. Whats even more upsetting is not feeling that you can speak out about it without being labeled racist. Its time to grow up and stop giving power to something that doesn't deserve it. Way to go complainers on making Caldwell county look bad because people cant handle a true subject. If we really wanna get on the topic of a race that has and still is experiencing horrible racism, I don't hear the Jewish community raising a fuss and causing drama every time the subject of the holocaust or even back to the bible days being brought up in schools or in public in general.

Fact is I have both white and blacks friends and we do not have racial issues. We accept each other as we are and realize we have different cultural backgrounds but respect the fact we are entitled to our own opinions of each other. Regardless how much political correctness attempts to tell us we are the same, we know better. Each race will always view history and cultures differently. It only becomes a problem if we allow it or when those attention seekers step out into the light making an issue of things that should be left alone. I am German decent but I don't raise hell every time the word German and nazi used or protest the teachings of the holocaust. It's history and if we don't respect it then we will repeat it. Races are different, always have been and always will be. Most the time it's not the general population of either race creating the issues but only a select few that likes to upset the balance for all of us.

Should be a non issue. Take a look at the comments on the wbtv site the vast majority think this is a waste of time. Shame on you Caldwell County for showing your ignorance.

It is interesting how the media attempts to make a story out of non issues like this but yet never present the real news taking place around us. I guess controversy sells. Have you noticed how much southern culture is being exploited by the media? Half the shows on A&E and history channels are reality shows making fun of southern culture, rednecks, hillbillies and moonshiners . Maybe we should protest. Lol. But the difference being, we accept our heritage for what is was and is.

I am a TINA. I will respond by saying that I will fight for the rights of AA people. They are my family. I'm not on the fence. I am white but all my life has been dedicated to my brothers and sisters who are of black descent. I disagree with the test or any other thing that may imply that my family is blue gum, handkerchief head, chitterling slinging, big lip, sagging, slave, scratch ankle, flat foot, pubic hair headed, slant head, burnt, doping, drunk, militant, trouble.making, non working, criminal, raping, and any other stereotype. It is wrong and I will say so.

What you are doing has nothing to do with equal rights. It's just stirring a pot, there seems to have been no derogatory intent behind this. Should it have been used, probably not but you are making too much of it.

Racism will never die unless we let it.

No. And that should have been a news story not the non issue they tried to spin into a story at West . I guess racial bickering sells more papers than a real news story like SCHS should have been

You're the poster child for what's wrong with so many White folks nowadays. You've abandoned your own tribe and joined another. Now you think everyone else should accept your way of life, embrace the black culture, and be ashamed of all the great accomplishments our White ancestors have made. It's absolutely disgusting and a sign of how far our culture has fallen.

The model for every stable and civilized society, and almost every modern invention and scientific discovery originated in Western Europe or America. What have Africans produced? Starvation and AIDS are the only things I've seen come from that part of the world. Go look at most anywhere Whites never conquered or colonized. Those people are still living just like they were 5,000 years ago..... wearing a loin cloth, speaking some primitive clicking language, and walking down some dirt path while they chuck spears at wild pigs.

Yet this is the race of people we hold up on a pedestal in America now. If that's what we're supposed to emulate nowadays then humanity is doomed.

Go lay down and breed with mongrels all you want, but when you get on TV and try to make everyone feel guilty for "offending" your dysgenic way of life, that's when all decent White folks need to draw the line and tell you to STFU.

I am SO SICK of "politically correct" hypocrites trying to silence people who are trying to teach.

The POINT of the test WAS TO show kids how racism works. But, what was done to this teacher... shows them that it's not ok to REALLY think and feel empathy for racism... or even to DEFINE it in a personal way.

There are teachers who do inappropriate things with kids and they are ignored. A teacher TRIES to gets students to feel social injustice so as to LEARN it, and he's punished.

Do we want to TEACH kids through experience or simply instruct them in test taking and NEVER thinking outside of their "selfie" box so we can continue to dumb them down in things that really matter in life?
