Reply to "AN UNEVEN HAND: THE DISCIPLINE GAP IN SEATTLE SCHOOLS"

In the other thread, you referenced a White Blog with a bunch of BS written about the study. Though this was an attempt to be intelligent as opposed to just speaking in the talking point Language of Right vs. Left STUPIDITY, the following quote from one of the respondants shows exactly how bankrupt their objections are:
quote:
If they wanted to publish an actual meaningful study, instead of just looking at suspensions/expulsions and race in a vacuum, they should also reference incident reporting by race and compare the rate of punishment for identical offenses. Only then can they make a case for racial discrimination in administering punishment.

Somehow, it didn't occur to our friend that, by the same consideration/comparison token, there is no way to make a case against the racial discrimination claim (as he and his fellow respondants attempt to do) without those same type of figures to show how it absolutely can't be racism or how racism can't possibly weigh in any significant manner.
