NY City Diversity Committee Says Programs for Gifted Students Are ‘Racist’

NY City Diversity Committee Says Programs for Gifted Students Are ‘Racist’, by Rick Moran.

A school diversity committee formed by Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to eliminate programs for gifted and talented students, claiming they perpetuate racial inequality because they’re comprised mostly of white and Asian students.

We are talking about groups of people here, not individuals. Due to natural selection and separated populations for tens of thousands of years, different groups of people have different statistical properties. Amazingly enough. One of those properties is that Asians are the best test takers, closely followed by whites, but blacks are a fair way further back. Any number of studies for a century bear that out. Everyone knows it’s true.

But the left’s fantasy is that all large groups of people should have identical statistics, so outcomes have to be equal or else. Kiss goodbye to any assistance for gifted students, and a permanently dumbed down universities.

Imagine taking that same philosophy into sport. No assistance for gifted athletes, so goodbye Olympic medals. All races must be equally represented in all sports, especially at the professional level. How does a football team get ahead? Got to stay within the salary cap and the racial quotas? And the gender quotas? Tour de farce.
