Don't sweat it. Just burn em!
Fairfax County School Board members said they are likely to abandon a staff report that showed racial and ethnic gaps in some measures of student behavior, including in the demonstration of "sound moral character and ethical judgment."
The board had delayed an April vote to approve the report after concerns were raised that findings were based on subjective measures, such as elementary report card data, and that they would fuel negative stereotypes.
The way they're using the word, saying the sun will rise tomorrow morning is a stereotype.
Saying water is wet, is a stereotype.
Careful with the stereotype. Sometimes (in these people's bizarro upside-down world) fire might be cold.
Then again the writer of the article phrases it, NEGATIVE stereotypes.
If you're wondering what a positive stereotype might be, just flip on the TV and witness the hardworking, intelligent, family oriented, Completely fictional, black guy or other minority character.
Then walk out your door and into reality.

MOUNT CLEMENS -- The Macomb County Sheriff's Office is reviewing videotapes in an attempt to identify suspects in what the sheriff called a "savage" attack by a mob of 20-30 men on a motorist in Mount Clemens.
Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said a group of up to 30 men, ranging in age from teens to young adults, were throwing items onto North River Road near the Gibraltar Trade Center on Saturday night.
Around midnight, a brick went through a side passenger window of a car driving by on North River Road. A man got out of the car to see what had occurred when the group attacked him. The man's wife then called 911 from inside the car to report the beating, police said."I don't know where I am at," the woman yelled on the 911 tape, released Monday by the sheriff's department.
Men can be heard yelling in the background as the woman screamed and the 911 dispatcher continually asked, "where are you?'
At least two other calls were placed to the Macomb County Sheriff's Office 911 to inform officers where the assault was taking place.
"I want to report a whole bunch of people throwing bottles at traffic over here on North River Road," said one female caller. "Somebody just jumped out of the van. There is a big fight, there is a huge fight ... 20 people on one person."
After a number of 911 calls, the attackers fled into nearby neighborhoods."They grabbed him and started kicking him," Hackel said. "It was a savage attack for no reason whatsoever."
A short time later, the same group of 20 males is believed to have robbed two white males at a gas station in Mount Clemens, stealing a wallet and cell phones. The men fled into the neighborhood after that attack, and some hid behind bushes.
The attackers were described as.....
I say, the attackers were described as.....
Oh right, they didn't say.
• Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
• When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
• Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
• The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
• Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
• Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
• Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
• Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
• Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
• Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
• Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
• Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.
The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:
In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.
What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.
Prof. Levin is at his most original and provocative when he sets aside well-established data on intelligence and takes up the even more controversial question of morality. Other researchers have suggested that blacks differ from whites in ways other than IQ, but have not followed this argument very far.
For example, the widely used Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), which subdivides personality into a number of categories, shows consistent differences in how blacks and whites evaluate themselves. Blacks, for example, hold themselves in higher regard than whites (or, in today’s jargon, have “higher self-esteem”). They are consistently more likely to agree with statements like:I am an important person.
I am entirely self-confident.
If given the chance I could make a good leader of people.
I have often had to take orders from someone who did not know as much as I did.
The common assumption that blacks are “taught to hate themselves” is wrong; blacks are quite pleased with themselves. At the same time, they consistently score higher than whites on the MMPI scales for such things as Hypomania, Psychopathy, Schizophrenia, and Masculinity, which are precisely the traits that distinguish incarcerated criminals from the rest of us. They tend to agree, for example, with statements like:Most people are honest chiefly through fear of being caught.
Most people make friends because friends are likely to be useful to them.
Most people will use somewhat unfair means to gain profit or an advantage rather than lose it.
It is not hard for me to ask help from my friends even though I cannot return the favor.
Another finding is that blacks are more impulsive or present-oriented than whites. Given a choice between a small candy bar today and a big one tomorrow, black children are more likely than white children to want the small one today.
Finally, even within races, moral reasoning is closely associated with intelligence. Intelligence does not guarantee good behavior, but a certain level is necessary for self-knowledge and the comprehension of moral distinctions.
Prof. Levin does not flinch from drawing what may appear to be an unkind conclusion: Given the crime rates, social irresponsibility, lack of foresight, impulsiveness, and general self-centeredness of black behavior, blacks probably have a different inherent capacity and appreciation for morality.

Pondering why Whites and non-Whites are not civilizationally, morally or temperamentally equal.....or why there is a socio-economical gap between the races (or why White people prefer to live among other White people and move out when a number of non-Whites move nearby), is about as necessary (and forced) as asking why dogs make better household pets than, say, Grizzly bears. I mean, why all the discrimination against Grizzly bears? And what about hornets? Why are White people always going with fish tanks for their living rooms rather than a great big hornet's nest hanging in the corner next to the entertainment center?
'After all', as the programmed White liberal brain reasons, 'they're all God's creatures'...
