Black students disproportionately suspended in Southern schools

There are 139 comments on the Arkansas Times story from Aug 31, 2015, titled Black students disproportionately suspended in Southern schools. In it, Arkansas Times reports that:

A new report says that federal figures show a disproportionate rate of discipline for black students, particularly in the southern states. In 84 southern districts, blacks accounted for ALL suspensions. PS -- The earlier item about Blytheville transfers reminds me of the wish by white parents in Blytheville to put children in Armorel schools. 66.6 percent were black, with a discipline rate 1.3 times as great, of 85.9 percent. A number of districts with small black enrollments had discipline rates 10 times the enrollment percentage.

They're suspended more because they don't know how to act. Why is that so difficult to understand?

who cares if it is disproportionate if they are legitimately being punished for something they did.

Why not save money and just graduate them right into prison, that's where there going anyway, they could learn how to make little rocks from big rocks.

You are suspended for bad behavior in class, and blacks can't behave. Now we are supposed to have lax rules so the bad behavior is over looked. Why? If white students have to act civilized, why can't black students? Right.

This is a shocking report. What it tells me is that we up north are doing something wrong if we don't have same amounts of black suspensions. Obviously we are letting these black students getting away with too much.
