Where do they find these dingbats? And they talk about whites still oppressing non-whites????
It was some time ago that I first heard the phrase "the soft bigotry of low expectations" and didn't quite appreciate what it really meant. I've come to think that the phrase has some application in these issues. There's a doctrine that is being applied to most of the social, political, and now educational issues. It's the oppressed vs oppressor narrative. Isn't this the counter narrative to merit and competency?
I think Professor Rubel's journal article was somehow printed after being "peer reviewed" and given a seal of academic credibility.
