Skip to comments.Are blacks too dumb to compete? (Joseph Farrah Commentary)
Posted on 10/17/2012 1:50:32 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
There was a time in America when a black man was scandalously counted as three-fifths of a man for congressional apportionment.
(By the way, it was the Southern slave states that wanted blacks counted 100 percent for apportionment while northeasterners wanted them not to count at all. This was the compromise worked out.)
History is repeating itself in Florida and Virginia and, Im sure other states to come.
Its not that Democrats dont want to count black votes any more. In fact, theyd count them all twice if they could. Instead, mostly Democratic school officials in these states have created new academic goals that hold blacks to a lower standard than whites and Asians.
In other words, the so-called progressives running the education establishment in virtually every state as well as Washington dont believe blacks are capable of achieving the same standards to which whites and Asians are held. Thats why I call progressives what they should accurately be called retrogressives. Quite literally, on matters of race, they want to go back to the plantation mentality.
So performance goals are now curved on the basis of race thanks to those politicians that blacks consider to be, for some reason, their friends.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
Last week, the Florida state Board of Education approved a new six-year strategic plan with student-achievement goals that vary based upon race, income, disability and English proficiency. For example, Florida hopes to have 86 percent of white students at or above grade level in math, but for black students the goal is 74 percent.
This is insulting, degrading, counter-productive, unfair, racist, demeaning and hurtful to blacks.
Thats exactly what Jacksonville mom Dwan Johnson, an African-American, thought when she called the states action embarrassing.

Doesn’t Joe realize that they were held in chattel bondage until just a few years back, when “Black Moses” freed them during his 2008 campaign? How’re they supposed to compete when they were slaves a scant four years ago?
Liberals are the biggest racists of all.
Personally, I wish these folks would hold off on anything racial until after the election. Nothing is going to be solved now, that can’t be solved after November 6th.
Show more judgement writers.
S&F, I’m not trying to give you a hard time for posting it.
According the liberal Democrats, they are too dumb to compete. Which is why they need the Barry Obama approved Affirmative Action and special classes.
I would say no. However, many have been dumbed down to keep them on the plantation.
We’re actually making some inroads into the Black vote. We don’t know if it’s going to be a good swing or not.
So what do we do? We pick this time to address Blacks with an issue like this.
What do we have, an electoral death-wish?
I guess it’s a great time to publish an article where we tell women they belong in the home too.
Just when you think you’re making progress, another wing-nut pops off.
Agree. I support WND. Yet there are many - Conservatives too! - who blast “World Nut Daily” as right wing lunacy. A bunch of Birther goons.
And headlines like this do not help.
I try to support endeavors that seek to advance the Conservative cause, but you’re quite right that WND blows it enough to cause people to dismiss it. That’s a real shame IMO.
And as you say, this headline...
What do you mean, could? In Lake County, Indiana, not only do many of them vote twice, but some of them vote twice even though they've been dead for years.
Last week some FReeper posted a vanity with a far less inflammatory headline. It was a joke. It was also “No Thanks”d by the mod.
That FReeper went on to post an Opus. (Who was that? I’m betting he is still FReeping. Ha!)
Anyway - It’ll be interesting to see if this article stays up.
3/5s was to reduce/eliminate slavery.
I despise this headline, and because it is (genuinely) racist and incendiary, I will not read the article.
I believe the largest factor is genetic, and I also believe that most on the left also know this though they’d die before admit it. As a matter of fact, it suits them to a tee if it’s genetic, because that almost ensures that the gap will never be closed. As long as they can blame it on external factors while knowing otherwise, they have the perfect self-perpetuating excuse to redistribute wealth, diminish freedom, and hang millstones around the middle-classe’s neck while insulting them at the same time-while they wear their self-appointed halos well away from the dysfunction in high-priced gated communities with private schools or public schools with special admissions standards (I want to see who is squawking the loudest re the NAACP’s suit against schools like Stuyvesant, it might be quite telling).

RE: I despise this headline, and because it is (genuinely) racist and incendiary, I will not read the article.
How would you re-phrase the headline? I see it as a rhetorical question which the author already answered.
I would rephrase it thusly: “Are we willing to believe a falsehood such as ‘ARE BLACKS TOO DUMB TO COMPETE?’”.
The article was down for a while, don’t know why it is back up.
Of course not. It is their culture that is holding them back.
Would prefer to see the article removed.
Based on what happened in Florida, it's an excellent question.
