Re: “Berkeley High May Cut Out Science Labs

To clarify - I meant raised by 2 loving caucasian grandparents. Obama has expressed a lot of love for them FYI. Making glenn beck's insidiously racist comments all the more callous and prejudicial in his cynical attempts to boost book sales and ratings by playing to ignorant racists who want to pretend they aren't racist.

"The unabashed racism in these comments is absolutely disgusting"

I think the worst and most insidious popular form of racism these days is to claim that being anti-racist is 'anti-white.' It's a horrible and cowardly way of sneaking in one's prejudice by projecting it onto the victims and critics of prejudice. Rather than debate someone on even terms to work towards a solution benefitting everyone let's mislabel the opponents of racism 'racists.' If we're Glenn Beck we can even claim that a half-caucasian president largely raised by 2 loving caucasian parents is a 'racist' who 'hates white culture.'

It's absolutely disgusting to see openly racist attitudes pretending to claim that their victims are the 'real racists.' It's cowardly, pathetic, insidious, and a divisive cancer on dialogue regarding seeking cooperative solutions for fighting against racism. It does wonders to sell books and boost ratings for racists like Glenn Beck though. And it makes me want to puke.

Re: “Berkeley High May Cut Out Science Labs

"Here's a radical idea for the mindless libtards of Berkely: Try treating people as individuals and provide assistance on the basis of their individual abilities and needs instead of their skin color. Too hard? Why not just legislate out all forms of achievement, you know, in the name of equality."

Unfortunately while that sounds nice on paper what this means is that people who come from disadvantaged backgrounds will be shoved behind students who have been beholden to better educational privilege than them. Those abilities of the individual don't come out of students unless they've been given education to begin with and sadly we have a broken educational system where huge chunks of minorities are left behind comparatively privileged Caucasian students. If you want to bury your head in the sand and pretend this problem doesn't exist then I'm going to go ahead and chalk you up as another failure of the education system regarding social studies and economics.

That said this curriculum-cutting is a horrible idea and the students who take BHS science classes are incredibly diverse so it's going to hurt everyone if it's cut. If the school wants to help raise up the disadvantaged then that's fine but this is not the way to do it.

Re: “Berkeley High May Cut Out Science Labs

This crock was cooked up by a parent representative who has no freaking idea how the school actually runs itself. The reality is that students at BHS all take science courses regardless of ethnic background. Cutting them would hurt EVERYONE. By all means try to help disadvantaged students but shrinking curriculum is not the way to do it.

Also the racist morons in this comment section harping about whites being inherently superior or the right-wing racist myth about anti-racism being 'anti-white' need to remove their heads from their posteriors post-haste.
