Obama is widening the race gap, rather than working to make a more race-blind society. In late July, Obama signed an executive order that lets black students get away with bad behavior.

This article pulls out part of one sentence in a 2,600 word order and inflates it into something that was NOT said. The order does NOT say to let black students get away with bad behavior. It does NOT say as the article does that, "To comply, public schools would have to engage in a racial quota system of discipline."

Here is the entirety of the section Mr.Conservative quote-mines from: "(vi) reducing the dropout rate of African American students and helping African American students graduate from high school prepared for college and a career, in part by promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools, and by supporting successful and innovative dropout prevention and recovery strategies that better engage African American youths in their learning, help them catch up academically, and provide those who have left the educational system with pathways to reentry;"

You can read the entire order here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/07/26/executive-order-white-house-initiative-educational-excellence-african-am

All "disparate" means is not alike; distinct or different in kind; unequal. It sounds as if you and Mr.Conservative are suggesting that black black students should NOT be treated the same as other students. It sounds like you and Mr.Conservative are opposed to helping black students get an education and succeed in life.

Carol blames others for having no facts, yet has no response when I present any. For those late to the argument, all Carol cares about is her hatred of Obama. She doesn't care about facts.
