Fap check: Trump says Blacks are “trapped” in failing schools

MFP & co. Published September 8, 2016

This is an excerpt from Trump’s speech claiming Democrat policy “traps” African-Americans in failing schools:

The Democrat…party has trapped millions of African-American and Hispanic youth in failing gov’t schools…I want every single inner-city child in America, who is today trapped in a failing school, to have the freedom– the civil right– to attend the school of their choice.

This is awkward.

But uhh, are we 100% sure that it’s the schools that are failing?? Because other races/ethnicities at the same “failing” schools– in the same high poverty areas– don’t seem to have the same problem.

Have a gander at the following tables (I chose Los Angeles County as representative of high poverty areas for name recognition, but any high poverty county works just as well):

Graduation rates

Los Angeles County CA US
Asians 92.6% 92.2% 89%
Blacks 67.9% 68.1% 73%
Hispanics 74.8% 76.4% 76%
Whites 86.5% 87.4% 87%

Meeting or exceeding grade-level Math

Los Angeles County CA
Asians 63% 60.5%
Blacks 16% 16%
Hispanics 21% 21%
Whites 52% 49%

This is fucking hilarious:

Meeting or exceeding grade-level English

Los Angeles County CA
Asians 70.5% 68%
Blacks 27% 27%
Hispanics 33% 32%
Whites 64% 60%

I know what you’re thinking:

But poor Black kids can’t study because they’re hungry and starving!!

Nope, that’s not it either!

Obesity by Grade 5

Los Angeles County CA
Asians 32.4% 31.3%
Blacks 40.8% 40.8%
Hispanics 50.5% 48.8%
Whites 28.7% 28.2%

The Green New Deal presupposes that recent global temperature and weather patterns (~500 out of 4.5 billion years) are "correct" and should be frozen in place in perpetuity.
