I agree. As why I continue to scream at the top of my lungs. But refuse to scream in a vacuum. And I looking for the research and it is probably impossible to do but a research to monitor how white teachers in an all white classroom respond to the students. I really think when we are not around [and in this case Hispanics don't count cuz many of 'em feel they are somewhat white] that these students are given a whole of lenicy[ap] regarding testing and class participation, In other words, they are given As and Bs without doing the work.
One of the classes I am taking at a particular university is allowing students to do just that. I have said something to the professor but you know I just wanna pass this class and move on...,but! I notice in his class he socializes with them during test time-it's like a party up in there. It was so noisey[sp] I had to shhhhhh them. Many of 'em turned and looked at me and I told them "my grade is important to ME may not be to YOU so could PLEASE lower your voices!" The teacher just stood there like a white statue. It was then I questioned if I had not been there would he had given them all the answers.
I even saw many students using their cell-phones to CHEAT! Now you know if there were black students in that classroom-the teacher would have made sure all electronics devices were turned off and placed on the blackboard in clear view and books and notepads under the chairs and nothing but paper and a number two pencils on the desk-and if the teacher even suspected CHEATING? Off to the dean's office the accused would go. So the point? There is CLEARLY a different set standards going on in education. And my proof is when I am engaging in convos with these students about history or whatever they ARROGANTLY assume what they are saying is correct and it is most definitely not. One example: one day the teacher asked how long has there been conflict in the middle east. One smarty pants raised his hands cuz he just knew the answer and spewed with confidence "since the eighties." I LAUGHED Ha! so loud he turned around and looked me up and down like I was a fool. I then said "no sweetheart they have been fighting for thousands of years" and he didn't believe me until the teacher confirmed it. But this student will pass this class with an A. So massa's data that's given about black boys vs white boys academic success is clearly RACIST[and criminal]. And this form of racism continues in classroom all over the country. But!
