On CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday night, Lesley Stahl asked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos about the "institutional racism" in school discipline.
It was like neither of them had ever heard of Nikolas Cruz. The Parkland, Florida, school shooter is our most recent case study of what happens when liberals start babbling about "institutional racism."
There's never been such an incredible paper trail as there is with Cruz, leading straight from idiotic liberal ideas directly to mass murder. We know that Broward County Public Schools knew about Cruz's felonies. We know that his behavior wasn't reported because it would negatively impact the record of a student of color. The school district bragged about the policy.
Perhaps having no criminal record would have helped Cruz get a good job someday. But it is a fact that one of the consequences of not reporting his crimes was that HE COULD GET A GUN.
Unless liberals are going to say that guns had nothing to do with the Parkland shooting, it was the racial bean-counting in school discipline that unleashed this psychotic on innocent students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School four weeks ago.
Stahl treated as cold hard fact the idea that schools punish "students of color more harshly than their white classmates," citing this real-world example:
"Let's say" -- lots of serious journalism begins with "let's say" -- "there's a disruption in the classroom and a bunch of white kids are disruptive and they get punished, you know, go see the principal. But the black kids are, you know, they call in the cops. I mean, that's the issue: who and how the kids who disrupt are being punished."

There is no such thing as “Institutional racism” this is another buzzword from the left, to justify thug behavior. There may be individual racists in organizations, but to make the argument that an organization or an institution is racist in 2018 is ludicrous.

I disagree, it is called the Entertainment Industry
Makes me want to make a run for the border.
I like Betsy DeVos but perhaps she isn’t the best person to be doing these interviews as maybe she’s too nice.
So Cruz was a minority?
Hispanic surname, yes, but I thought the kid was white.
Was the parents that raised him Hispanic?
