New York state ends literacy test for prospective teachers because too many blacks and Hispanics failed. I wonder if they will extend this to other areas.

The New York Times recently reported:

The Board of Regents on Monday eliminated a requirement that aspiring teachers in New York State pass a literacy test to become certified after the test proved controversial because black and Hispanic candidates passed it at significantly lower rates than white candidates.

And there you have it.

The radical left thinks that racial diversity is more important than competence.

I wonder if they will be extending this kind of insanity to other professions, such as to medical doctors who perform surgery to save people’s lives, or to engineers who design bridges that are safe and which are able support the weight of all the cars, trucks, and buses that drive across them, or to auto mechanics who fix the brakes on people’s cars so they don’t crash and die.

The New York Times once reported:

The rate of AIDS among black women is 27 times the rate among white women.

Based on the same logic, the test which detects HIV antibodies in the bloodstream is also racist, and therefore, should also be eliminated.

Uh oh. Government bureaucrats want to take control of kids’ summer vacations.

According to this article, summer vacation makes children dumber and fatter. The article even goes on to say that it’s the poor and racial minorities who are hit the hardest.

But don’t worry. There’s a proposal to have the federal government get involved to solve this problem. Supporters of the program claim that it would cost less than $2,000 per child per summer. Of course supporters of these kinds of government programs always understate the cost, so I can easily see such a program costing far more than that amount.
