Unsayable troof.

There was no way to chalk up these complaints to adolescent theatrics. A February survey of CHS teachers had already revealed a school that resembled Lord of the Flies. Cursing, yelling students roamed the halls, pushing, shoving, ramming each other into walls, sometimes “accidentally” colliding with teachers. Thirty-six out of 79 teachers surveyed believed that they were unsafe in the hallways, and those who didn’t acknowledged either being big enough to stare down students or practiced at minding their own business. . . .

What could not be said out loud was that the problem kids were all black, though the district superintendent did delicately indicate that the school’s trouble is “racialized.” Like many inner suburbs, once predominantly white Cheltenham has become increasingly African-American over the past decades.[1]

The subtitle of Ms. Hymowitz's piece speaks of racial "gaps in education." Nope. It's about racial "gaps in culture," the unwillingness of young blacks African-Americans (choose one) to be a part of the larger community. White community to be exact.

But let's celebrate the joys of diversity. Let's do that. And as mass immigration and demography inexorably work to make white Americans a majority minority in our own country, which tickles Whoopi [cushion] Goldberg no end, let's celebrate the reign of anarchy. Where we, like the school guards in this article, look the other way while primitives take over.
