Portland ME...Too Many White Teachers

Our wack-o Portland stands out again by arguing against merit based hiring in its schools. The Muslims and blacks students they say complain because there are no Arab or Muslim or enough black teachers to make them feel comfortable. in class. To hell with assimilating, to hell with color blindness, to hell with merit based employment, to hell with quality requirements...lets us get some non-whites in here!

Portland is the brain-dead sister of California's and Mass's brain-dead socialist/communist wannabes.

No Dogs or Whites allowed

Moving from Portland does

Moving from Portland does nothing about the Liberal/Swine indoctrinating all the little minds about how evil white people are. This is a Nazi-like approach to vilifying a race for political purposes.

OK but it is a Portland

OK but it is a Portland problem,for the taxpayers of Portland primarily.
When the taxpayers rise in revolt in Portland then might be the time to use this as a mission to
join the fight.
Really good chance that if anything comes of this it will end up in court and a loss for thier
duly elected mayor.

I am going to be concerned when this becomes a issue in Meddybemps.

Yes, Portland's penchant and

Yes, Portland's penchant and down-right lust for all things Socialist/Communist affects us all. The current flap about citizen initiative referendum voting issues is a good example. Portland, Lewiston, Bangor control almost all the votes and what they want is what they get. We need something like the Electoral College for referendums or a percentage of each district to stop it.. We are now suffering from tyranny of the majority. The majority of our electorate are just stupid and they will ruin America as hey have been doing for generations.

Watcher maybe voting should be a weighted average ........say votes above the Volvo line are worth 1.25 or 1.5

What we need above the Volvo

What we need above the Volvo line is a new state.
Or better yet, just give the 1st District back to Mass.

Just curious Watcher - are

Just curious Watcher - are you a misogynist too?

It's not that there are too many white teachers. It's that there are not enough teachers that represent the cultural diversity that is the fact of Portland's public schools. I don't expect you to understand this nuance, but other more sophisticated readers will.

What is of interest is that older Mainers of Franco heritage will understand this lack of representation in teaching staff very well, including Gov. Paul LePage.

Just curious Gerry - are you

Just curious Gerry - are you as dumb and racist as you sound?

Does skin color really determine who is a better teacher? What about gender? Should men teach boys while women teach girls?

Anyway, if I have twenty MM's and 10 are red and 10 are green and I want more green, I have too many red.

You leave out the fact that a lot of those Franco Americans went to Parochial Schools at least up to 8 eighth grade.
But never mind in this one , as in most , you are pissing up a rope !

Well, then, FS, why don't they just hire the requisite number to reach the quotas you desire? No need to fire or replace anyone.

Just get the new hires in, and let them sit in the rubber rooms with the incompetents that can't be fired.

So what if there's not enough money. Racial preferences and affirmative action are more important than money and debt. As is hiring the best available candidates to "educate" our precious children.

Oh, and the next time Portland needs to advertise for open teacher positions, they should include "no whites need apply" in the postings.

Ah....the substance we've become use to.

And thanks for confirming that "anonymous coward" isn't name calling.

Progressive joke. How's that for a name?

Sorry Mel, but you do hide

Sorry Mel, but you do hide behind a pseudonym, no? So the FACT is that you post anonymously.

And since you like to hurl insults at others while hiding behind your shield of anonymity, you are a coward. Hence, another FACT.

See how easy that was? Not name calling, but simply stating FACTS. You may not like these facts, object to these facts, even feel insulted by these facts. But FACTS they are you anonymous coward.

Ring around the Gerald, who

Ring around the Gerald, who knows exactly who Melvin Udall is, so I am NOT anonymous to him when I post, nor to most others when I do.

So what do you mean by anonymous, Geraldo?

Now, why don't you remind everyone why your AMG moniker is Fair Share?

Oh, by the way....great response to the point I made about hiring more teachers to meet quotas.

So, Fair Share, if you don't

So, Fair Share, if you don't want to spill the beans, I can recreate the story.

That aside, we note that you have no problem with the Love Ladies (Mutt, Yesper, Strawman) ladling out vulgarity by the truckloads while "hiding" behind anonymity. Come to think of it, if you glance at a few AMG pages of post titles, you'll find that pseudonymous posting is far and away the norm.

So when are you going to nail the rest? Or do you have something against me in particular, like my minority status?
