SOMETIMES YOU JUST KNOW UPDATE

A leopard can’t change it’s spots.
How did that expression ever come about? What induced it’s introduction into our language?  What do folks mean when they use it?  It can cover many subjects but it mostly concerns people, as I have always understood it.

One of those darn things that caught my eye and I had to drop everything else.

I think the locals in fact do have a bit to worry about. 
I would suppose that getting some kids out of their local environment might be a good thing.  On the other hand, there is I think a reasonable worry on the part of those referred to as, not in my back yard.  The so called justice system is not concerned with justice. Not many people believe they will get help against those who cause problems, and past experiences have proven that to be true.
Then of course there’s the RACE issue which is raised here.  Well sometimes that does play a large part and often for very good reason..

Drew put it very well just recently.

The bothersome thing about stereotypes is that they get that way by so often being true.  Drew458

And that just may be what the locals have in mind, even if they hadn’t read Drew.
Cause they wouldn’t have to, to understand the truth of it. But hey,

That’s R A A A A C I S T!

Tory town tells Gove super-head: We don’t want your inner-city pupils here

· Top-performing Durand Academy in Stockwell wants to open boarding school in Stedham, West Sussex
· But neighbours aghast and say ethnic minority students will cause problems
· They fear influx of weapons and think local forest will be turned into a ‘sexual volcano’
· But education secretary Michael Gove hits back and slams them for blocking ‘inspirational’ project

By Ben Ellery

Education Secretary Michael Gove last night stepped into a bitter race row raging over an inner-city school’s plan to open its own boarding school in an affluent rural area.
The top-performing Durand Academy in Stockwell, near Brixton, South London, wants to transport 600 youngsters to a site with stunning views over the South Downs every Monday morning for lessons and bring them back on Friday evenings, free of charge.
It says the scheme will provide them with ‘an Eton-style experience’ and help keep pupils safe from drugs and knife crime.

NOTE: To Americans and others not familiar. Think of the worst part of your own city wherever you are. A place you don’t want to be even in daylight. Well folks, one of those places is Brixton.  Especially if you just happen to belong to a guilt ridden race out of favor since the left took charge of everything and invented the race industry.  Lets continue.

But the plan has been fiercely criticised by people living near the site – a disused boarding school in the quiet village of Stedham, West Sussex. They have raised concerns about the number of black and Asian students and claimed that youngsters would need to be searched daily for drugs and weapons.
They have also accused Durand’s ‘super-head’ Greg Martin – who has been described as a ‘hero’ by Mr Gove – of ‘spoiling a tranquil place’ by ‘bringing Brixton to the countryside’.

That’s R A A A A C I S T!

But last night Mr Gove’s spokesman hit back and attacked those ‘trying to obstruct an inspirational project’.
His intervention came after a local Tory county councillor expressed fears about the number of ethnic minority students who would attend the school.
John Cherry, 73, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Ninety-seven per cent of pupils will be black or Asian. It depends what type of Asian. If they’re Chinese they’ll rise to the top. If they’re Indian they’ll rise to the top. If they’re Pakistani they won’t.
‘There are certain nationalities where hard work is highly valued. There are certain nationalities where they are uncertain what this hard work is all about.
‘If the children are not allowed out of the site then it will make them want to escape into the forest – it will be a sexual volcano.
‘Has anyone asked whether these children want to be plucked from their natural surroundings? They have never done boarding before, so they won’t know how it works.

OOOOH … DEFINITELY R A A A A C I S T !

He added: ‘Stockwell is a coloured area – I have no problem with that. To be honest, I would far rather Durand took over a secondary school in London rather than shoving everybody here.’
Anne Reynolds, chairman of a steering group which has been set up in the area to fight the plans, also questioned whether inner-city children would feel comfortable in such a rural environment.
She said: ‘It might raise tensions in their community. Their peers might say, “Why have you been chosen to go to a special, smart school in West Sussex but I haven’t?”
‘The whole thing is a massive experiment and I think it will be disastrous. There’s no evidence it will increase their attainment levels. When you’re a teenager, isn’t it too late to start appreciating the countryside? I don’t know if it’s the right environment.’
At a public meeting in the nearby village of Milland, where actor Hugh Bonneville has a home, one unnamed resident said: ‘You must be wary because you are talking about students who will have to be searched daily for weapons and knives.’ Chichester MP Andrew Tyrie is also ‘extremely unhappy’ with the way the project has been handled and has written to Mr Gove asking him to rethink the idea.
Mr Martin, Durand’s director of education, last night described some of the comments from residents as ‘shocking’ but vowed to press on with the scheme. It is hoped the boarding school will open next year.
He said: I’ve heard a few comments made about pupils escaping and I said I’m not building a prison.
‘It’s sad but it makes us want to fight harder for it, and when this councillor sees the hard work and commitment from ethnic minorities I’m sure he will change his tune.

Might this be one of those little “nudges” we have read about in the past year or more. Or am I the only one who actually remembers? I think Wardmom knows cos she mentioned it only recently. Governmental nudges to get us doing things and thinking their way.

‘We want to get pupils away from hanging around the streets of Brixton and Stockwell, where we have stabbings and a constant threat of trouble. It will be very hard to maintain a negative view when you see students working hard and contributing. You will soon realise these are frankly nothing more than baseless prejudices.’

Baseless prejudices?  Baseless did he say?

Well, maybe but ....

SOURCE FOR THE ARTICLE

SOURCE FOR THE TRUTH, DREW.

Update to story above: He resigns with usual I am so sorry I said that.

A Tory councillor was forced to resign last night after suggesting inner-city children from a ‘coloured area’ would not be welcome at a proposed new school in the countryside.

Announcing his resignation last night, he said: ‘My remarks were plainly wrong. They were thoughtless and extremely foolish. I unreservedly apologise and withdraw them. I very much regret the distress this must have caused.’

Labour education spokesman Stephen Twigg called for David Cameron to condemn the comments. He said: ‘When a Tory councillor makes openly racist comments like these, it’s no surprise people still think of the Conservatives as the nasty party.’

Lord Ashcroft, the pollster and former Tory donor, said the party won just 16 per cent of the non-white vote at the general election in 2010. In a hard-hitting critique, he said: ‘We must do better than this – both because we should be a party for the whole country, and because we will find it increasingly difficult to win a majority without them.’

And so once again, the politically correct have their way. But the truth is more than likely he was correct in what he said. He just should not have said it out loud as if he had the right to any sort of free speech. Where the heck did he think he was?
