A small bit of race-realism appears to have penetrated the über-politically correct world of academia. CBS Tampa reports about a State Board of Education plan which sets different goals for math and science depending upon students’ race. Asians have the highest goals, followed closely by Whites and more distantly by Hispanics and Blacks. The racial ranking of these academic goals is consistent with the results of extensive IQ testing in the United States. Naturally enough, race-deniers, equality advocates and ‘community activists’ are moaning about the plan being ‘unfair’:
“To expect less from one demographic and more from another is just a little off-base,” Juan Lopez, magnet coordinator at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Riviera Beach, told the Palm Beach Post.
JFK Middle has a black student population of about 88 percent.
“Our kids, although they come from different socioeconomic backgrounds, they still have the ability to learn,” Lopez said. “To dumb down the expectations for one group, that seems a little unfair.”
So far though, despite the predictable criticism, the Florida State Government is sticking with its plan:
[T]he Florida Department of Education said the goals recognize that not every group is starting from the same point and are meant to be ambitious but realistic.
