The real problem is scoring. If the children weren't scored they wouldn't know if they were high or low. There needs to be a participation score where all children are scored at 1000.

"Is this really a big surprise? Why would the children of minorities be held to a reasonable standard by their parents when the parents aren't held to a reasonable standard by society?

Make sure to thank a liberal for this circular performance"

Gap ???? They make everything racial, how about the reality that 2 white parents have white babies, 2 brown parents have brown babies etc etc etc. The only 'gap' would be which group has the least to do and spend all their time procreating instead of working.

It's all about the culture. I'm not talking about the broader "American Culture", I'm talking about socio-economic or regional sub-cultures, which traditionally have been alligned with specific ethnic groups. As ethnic identity becomes more blurred over time, it's more clearly evident that culture (the habits, beliefs systems, and role models that a group of people share) actually determines outcomes.

It's funny these stories about the guy from an affluent family who graduates from Harvord, starts his own business, becomes a millionaire, and then at some point learns from a DNA test that he's 1/2 or 1/4 "black". If his family had told him about his ethnic "identity" as a child, he would probably have followed a completely different path. Too late when he's 45.

One only needs to look at the 'country of origin' of a particular race and see how that country has become successful.

Or even the continent ....

Like the success, or lack of success in Africa, Europe, South America, North America as a whole.

Look at which race(s) that dominates those continents and the state of those countries.

Even in Europe today, there is a changing demographic due to immigration which is slowly bringing down the countries that border the Mediteranean.

Every individual race has its own strengths and weaknesses.

For instance, if the black race is less successful in the white dominated American educational system, the white race would probably have much difficulty being successful attempting to survive in the Congo River or Amazon River areas.

It all depends upon what CRITERIA is being used to measure 'success'.

The core problem is that the children, found incapable of learning and fitting into our society, are being raised by someone that was incapable of learning and fitting into our society.....back for generations.....

Yet the USA keeps moving along like a freight train with no stopping in sight.

Keep living that pipe dream.

Our schools have been integrated for a minimum of what - 45 years now?

A minimum 3 generations of equal educational opportunity in the form of integrated schools doesn't make sense?

Please educate us all on how we currently do not have equal educational opportunity.....this should be good!

This problem has be someone else's fault., it can't be the parents. We need far more study and far more money to figure out who is at fault. I'm betting, in the end, it was Bush's fault.

Ah, the title of your new autobiography! It was probably ghosted by Jackie Mason.
