This article is where I'm coming from/arguing about.  My state wants to enact a rule that before a child in school is disciplined their skin color, wealth and IQ come into play.  Forgive me, but, if you're stopping another student from learning in class, how do those things come into play?

If a child is disrupting class, get them out...End of story.  Let the kids who want to learn learn!

Now, they want to enact a bill that says there will be different treatment for children due to skin color and wealth and if they're smart or dumb...WHAT?  If a child is disruptive, send him/her to the principal.  End of story!  Give them their own class, but get them away from the kids who follow the rules and want to learn!

UUUUGGGGHHHH!  Things like this make me so frustrated.

Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen... - Zbigniew Brezhinsky

Maybe it is because as a society we have become fixated on excuses, exceptions, I'm the victim, you must cater to my special circumstances.  Everyone is oppressed, and everyone is a victim, and everyone is searching for some identity crisis.  Every stupid celebrity has some sort of "coming out", I'm Gay, I was abused. I stubbed my toe and it didn't make the headlines. I need to have a press conference and make sure everyone knows.  Every criminal defense of It's not my fault, I'm a victim, and society made me do it.  

Everyone thinks they are special, and everyone thinks the world should bend over backwards for them, just like the lady on that airplane with allergies, or the vegan activists flooding into a restaurant scream about the steak you just bought. Everyone is special with service animals, afflictions and circumstances. 

We seem to scream identity crisis in our world, so  badly we have the need to wear clothing like a billboard with messages of a cause, or what you do, so everyone looks and we are important. Wear a racing tee-shirt and I look like a race car driver, or a Jersey number and I look like I'm a player, or something political. Its no wonder we think every kid in school has to be the exception, and we scream, you can do that to my little angel. He/she is special, from rich to poor, to ethnic or religion, legal or illegal. The rules don't apply to my kid, so you wonder why a lifetime of excuses leads to prison, drugs, broken lives, broken marriages, and mental illness problems.

I know what you mean about the victim attitude.  I hate that one.  I didn't have a perfect childhood.  I've had bad things happen in my life.  But, I'm not a victim of anything.  These were just experiences, good and bad.

I hate when their excuse is that they grew up poor.  In this country, nobody knows what truly poor is.  But, my grandma did.  She drank watered down coffee because they were too poor to buy milk.  She got shoes in the fall, but was barefoot all summer long.  She had one outfit each day of the week.  She washed them on Saturday.  My grandma was honest.  Being poor didn't turn her into a criminal.

What I think about this whole article is that it will be an excuse to be racist in school against middle class whites.  Legislation like this doesn't treat people equally.  It gives allowances to certain races and classes as though they're not capable of obeying rules and laws.  This is a very bad precedent.
