If a black criminal gets caught, this is the first thing it screams. I heard some children born by ghetto thug mammies teach their little children "That's racist!" as their first sentence. It is no surprise to me the most liberal newspaper in America would use the same defense for the black teachers who stole the education of Atlanta's children. Liberal yankees are so infantile and imbecilic they put their ignorance in print. Bless their little heart.

I don't think it's been reported what percentage of the victims were black. However, when I see local news reports, it almost always black students and parents who say there were targeted.

If 90% or more of the victims targeted by these teachers were black, then would this be a race based crime.

What do you guys think?

"Racial prejudice" is when you look at a person and then make pre-judgements about them based on their race.

"Racial discrimination" is when you treat people differently based on their race.

There may very well be racial prejudice and discrimination on the part of some actors in this story, but who are they?

I dont care who you are thats funny !!
In this case they did not have a white person to blame in on cause they are all black.
What did the Department of Education think was going to happen wheN they said if these STUDENT test scores go up you will get bonus money.
These educators got where they are because of color not because of their knowledge of teaching kids in school.
I guess the only thing these students learned from these educators was "Take the Money and then Lie about it.

What a lesson HUH !!!

No Atlanta Public Schools in the "Northern" section where whites predominate, were in the cheating scandal.

Right, that's my impression too.

So, why were these teachers only targeting students in predominently black schools?

Beverly Hall was superintendent over the entire Atlanta Public School System, even the northern white schools. Where are all the white students who had grades changes and where are the white teachers who have come forward to say they were pressured into changing grades?

Racial prejudice and discrimination ultimately hurts the targeted individual, even when it's done with the best of intentions. That's the take away from all this mess.

They hoped the lazy ineffective ones making as much as the good teachers would start teaching when the test scores showed how inept they were at their jobs, but they didn't factor in the number of criminals working in our public schools under the guise of "educators".

I am reminded of the guy responding to his boss who just fired him. The employee said, "You fired me 'cause I'm black". The boss replied, "No, I hired you because you are black, I'm firing you because you are useless".

The "nut" will soon respond to lighteredknot's post by calling him some predictable names and ending it by calling lighteredknot the dreaded R-word. 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1..... Ladies and Gentlemen, from parts unknown, weight unknown, we give you "the nut."
