    obama had the chance to be president and chose to be black. Since he voluntarily chose not to be president he should vacate the office.

    This whole premise about disciplining blacks and whites the same amount of times regardless of the infractions and who does the crime is ridiculous...just as ridiculous as the president.

    According to this premise, If there is a fight between two fighting black kids, they cannot discipline the two kids until they find two white kids to punish first! What are they going to do, find two white who have library fines? Then suspend them all? :mad:

    Anyone who has taught at a predominately black public school knows that they are uaually dangerous places where little learning takes place. Those schools need more discipline, not less. There needs to be a growing willingness to permanently expel students who are dangerous and disruptive.

    I agree, the movie Lean on Me makes that point very very well

    Did anyone ever think socioeconomics and neighborhood environments contribute more to the discipline problems than skin color?

    Not in this article. If one subgroup is in trouble more often, that subgroup needs to clean up its act, pure and simple...

    A white student sticks out his tongue at another while a black student comes from behind and smashes a kid in the face- using this thinking, both should be suspended to keep the ratio intact.

    Ridiculous...
