Are just getting in more trouble at school? I was listening to the news and they are saying there is a problem because black kids are having to be disaplined at three times the rate of white kids. Is it that the school is unfairly punishing black students even when they do nothing wrong? Or that they are getting in more trouble? Im genuinly curious what others think. I dont have school age children yet so i have no idea how it works. I dont want this to sound racist either. I think if you do the crime you do the time. No matter what color your skin is. I think sometimes maybe its not wanting to believe that they are just making bad choices and getting in trouble. I think it would be hard to find a story where anyone was upset that white kids where being punished more than another race. It would just be, well, i guess they are causing more trouble? Ill add, of course there are injustices in all our lives, some people are just ignorant asses. But sometimes i think we just want to blame someone, instead of realizing the real problem. Maybe the black kids are doing more wrong. The solution isnt to change the punishment to make black parents feel better. But to help find out why the kids(any race) are making such poor choices.
