Racism at schools holding black kids back and forcing black parents to pull their kids back into the home? Black students do better with white teachers. If blacks were so frightened by their kids being in white schools, why have they searched for white schools in a never ending quest? The linked article cites the story of a young black boy in San Diego being taunted for being black. Little Marvel had kids asking him why he was that color. The comments focusing on the bullying in a San Diego elementary school are guffaw inducing and a bit head scratching. Check out how much tap dancing is going on here. The mom says,
"If he hadn't been bullied I would have really looked into transferring schools, or going back to where I grew up in Kansas. At least in Kansas it was more racially diverse. I assumed that's how the schools would be in San Diego, but I was wrong."I added the italics. There is something amiss with her statement. If he had NOT been bullied, she would have looked at transferring or going back to Kansas. She was already looking to leave the school district, the bullying just accelerated it. Bullying is what caused her to home school rather than move? For those of you keeping score, in this woman's view, flyover, flatland Kansas is more racially diverse than San Diego, California. Maybe this is the secret meaning of diverse area: "safe space for blacks". Kansas is 80% white, while San Diego is far more diverse. San Diego's k-12 schools are 23.4% white. What is the mystery? San Diego's public schools are 46.5% Hispanic, and Miguel and Rosa do not play the "OMG I have a black friend" game. Amazing to see their behavior when they are playing the demographic swamped by an outsider that does not conform to group norms.
The linked article has more weeping about how schools hold black students to lower standards thinking they are different and schools want black boys to be like little white girls and that can lead to trouble because "they are different". Labels like trouble maker might be assigned to them boys. Whoa, slow down sistahs. How is it that there are no differences between races but them simultaneously you state the groups are different? I bet they didn't even blink with that doublethink. They better slow down or else they will crimethink. Sistahs, gender and race are just social constructs. What are these differences you speak of? There is also the stigma of leaving the public schools they fought so hard to enter. Group pressure to conform. I swear I have read this elsewhere this with black community.
Now we know blacks can never be assigned any agency, nor held to any fault. Within their own answers and examples are the keys to this trend of who and how. The little boys mentioned in the article have two parent homes. The homes have parents both with degrees, and even advanced degrees. What we are seeing here is an effect like the black flight phenomenon from Detroit and other cities. The black middle class left as fast as they could abandon the black underclass, and these blacks are doing the same with their schools. They know the toxic effect of their kids' friends. They know the peer pressure about liking school being labeled "acting white". This is momma bear protection. Not just from the ravages of violence in majority black schools but the constant social pressures that can have detrimental effects on education and one's life (nurture).
The other good out that homeschooling gives black parents invested in their kids' future is the geographic one. The pressure to not leave the neighborhood for white suburbs is strong on blacks. If the article can cite people pressuring families who leave bad schools, what do you think they say to them about leaving black areas for white areas? I bet it makes for an awkward Thanksgiving dinner. Homeschooling allows blacks to stay in their neighborhood and financially not have to clear the hurdle to get into a less black area with higher housing costs.
We can tell this is a talented tenth and higher caliber group by the examples selected. Two parent homes. Parents with college degrees. The boys are black children with autism. Blacks with autism are extremely rare. Rare enough to be an inspiration for other news articles yet two of the boys mentioned here have autism? If these parents are afraid of racism or low standards, why are the unemployed black moms of other black kids not home schooling? They technically have the time and capacity to do so, and would have the same fears as these middle and upper middle class black parents. This is why the media's race blinders and "protect the Narrative" behavior is actually detrimental to the discussion.
Blacks homeschooling can be explained with old canards by the left. Racism, low expectations, but anyone who knows black middle class families will understand. The pressure is immense not to be seen as hating on your own culture and people, but they are aware of the bad environmental effects of their underclass. This is akin to the release of the Ferguson Report. The entire left and blacks disregard the proof that officer Wilson was right, Michael Brown was in the wrong and "hands up, don't shoot" was a lie to focus on the racism in the police department due to arrest records. No agency, no accountability. This will probably be the future for blacks. They'll still struggle and be pushed out of places, and the media will dutifully blame old boogeymen of racism, slavery and microaggressions while avoiding the fact that 1950s, 80% white America is gone.
