    Mainly comes down to negotiating skills. Women create a cycle of lower pay because they, many times, accept the job for lower wages, feeling they won't get it if they ask for more. The whole self fulfilling prophecy thing.

    The majority of blacks live in white majority suburbs, not inner cities.

    The White-Black IQ gap applies in rural areas, as well.

    This does not mean that there aren't statistical outliers. The smartest Blacks, are above the mean White IQ.

    But, blaming the performance difference on "White privilege", is a leftist smear tactic, intentionally designed to create resentment against the majority of the American population (and justify the socialist transfer of wealth)

    Strange then, how a solid majority of 'athletes' are black, if whites are the ones having that "Privlege?"
    Why are blacks more likely to be selected for college ball teams, track teams etc? In fact, the only 3 sports i know of, where whites still are the majority are swimming, Rowing/boating teams and Lacross.

    But don't we spend more money via the DoE on inner city schools??

    So true. Just like saying "more blacks get expelled cause of messin up at school, is 'racist'. WELL if more blacks are doing bad things, worthy of being expelled, HOW IS THAT racist?

It really used to be a super active forum. I think it started going downhill after the site added the ability to add rep points "likes" to a person's comments, which in turn started a "rep war," then nasty name calling between participants...myself included. After this started, people started getting banned from the site, some temporarily, some permanent. Add in the rapid growth in Facebook popularity, this forum basically went on life support. I'm actually surprised it still exists. It used to be a ton of fun getting to respond to new posts and topics each day.

    According to the 2010 census, the majority of backs live in: inner city areas, minority block rural areas ... not distributed among white-dominated neighborhoods.

    But again, based on the way school systems are districted, the majority of blacks are group into schools based on where they live, which are also less economically viable. The schools kinda suck which doesn’t set anyone, white or black any good. As much as I like the idea of raising salaries / giving bonuses to schools with teachers whose kids get better grades, this has a secondary effect of putting the poorest performing teachers in the poorest schools ... a self licking ice cream cone of bad performance.

    I would say it is more complicated that straight ‘white privilege’, but a socio economic cycle. Whites have traditionallymade more money, that produces more money for schools, that produces better schools, those students are poised to have better jobs ... and the cycle repeats.

    Didn’t say that was a ‘white privilege’. Maybe blacks are better athletes? Maybe they come from areas that focus on sports because the other circumstances are dead ends or slim. Of the top ten cities that produce NFL athletes (based on population ratios) Cleveland, Cincinnati, New Orleans and St. Louis are 10-7, then Pensacola, Birmingham, Miami and Pittsburgh with Canton and Youngstown Ohio at the top of the list (highest ratio based on NFL players per 10k residents. I look at that list and I see 6 of 10 that have huge concentrations of blacks, 5 that are large urban areas with coincidentally or not, terrible school systems.

    Again, maybe the have a propensity to be better at athletics.

    Per the Constitution, states have responsibility for public education. Federal DOE funds / grants do go to individual districts / schools (these target #1: children with disabilities and the #2: economically disadvantaged children), but the vast majority of school funding is from states and localities (83% in 2015). There are specific schools (one in Baltimore that I know of) that get larger portions, but overall no ... most of the funding is tied to state and local tax revenues.

    Probably depends on how you point it out.

    Again, probably on how you point it out. If it what the statistics show, it is what it is. If it is an anecdotal observation ... it is opinion vice fact. Studies do show that black males are disciples in school more than any other group, but also look at behavior issues and how they tie back to that socio-economic cycle; blacks have a huge problem with a lack of male role models / single parent (usually mother) families; this has a huge effect on the type of human you are raising and until the community works on that the cycle will repeat ... unfortunately it is the youth that dealing with the consequences.

    there is some reporting on racial disparity in student discipline, at the same time it is true to say the majority of discipline problems in Baltimore City schools are blacks ... but that isn’t surprising since blacks are the majority of enrollees. At issue is if a teacher / administrator has a propensity to accept or not accept behavior based on a kid’s race, sex, other factors etc. (stats would show that white females are the least / under disciplined for behavior issues in schools. Mean girls.

    The rep wars and name calling also had the effect of driving away a lot of posters / users who had every conversation / thread derail by the jackassery. In 2013 the site owners recruited a few moderators (probably too many) a couple who clearly had users they did not like; 3 mods retired, then one a while after ... I am the last one but spend most of my time on other things.

    The Guidelines never changed, but enforcement of them became a thing and that had a few users leave too. The number of user permanently banned is actually pretty small, but they accounted for significant numbers of posts (but you could argue quality vs quantity all day long).

    Before I was a mod he and I got along well, for a hike I had a user and a mod account he was very cordial with me on my user account and combative and rude with the mod account. My general tone, opinions didn’t change, I don’t think he liked the idea of moderators and he made a point of being argumentative. But, he didn’t expect to stay, created a self-fulfilling prophecy of “you are just looking for a reason to ban me”, after the posts about my family I had no tolerance for the attitude then he posted a rant-ish, insulting swan song and got banned; it is still around, I never deleted it.
