Racism



The Face Of Education - Is It Too White?

November 19, 2011 @ 09:35

I haven't posted much on Canadian Thinker over the past several weeks, and it keeps playing on my mind because people keep e-mailing me asking why.

I've been busy with the podcast thing and in the back of my mind I guess I've needed something juicy to write about. Well this might be it.

Where do I begin?

First of all, I'm not sure I'd like Krishna Nankissoor as a person because I get the impression he's somewhat spineless and someone who likes to take the easy way out even it means hurting the reputation of others.

Krishna Nankissoor, I believe cares about only one person, and that's Krishna Nankissoor.

He's the latest in a long list of system users to run to the abhorrent Ontario Human Rights Commission because like a spoiled brat, he didn't get his way.

For the full background, read this piece in the Toronto Star, which once again, is trying to fan the flames of racism where there's hardly a spark.

The arctial is actually called - The face of education, is it too white?

Nankissoor is a math teacher in Malton who twice was turned down for promotions so he did what a lot of losers do, he refused to look in the mirror and looked for someone else to blame.

Let it be known that there are many cases of non-white teachers getting promotions in Peel Region, but that doesn't make for a good story in the Star and it doesn't help make Nankissoor any more money so it becomes a matter for the pathetic Ontario Human Rights Commission.

Nankissoor's argument is very simple. He's South Asian and that's the only reason he isn't the head of a math department today. Even though there are countless examples of South Asians being promoted in Peel Region it doesn't matter any more in our twisted and frustrating system that often manages to turn alleged racism into real racism by providing an unfair advatage to complainers.

I always play the reverse game in these situations. If a white person was failed to get a promotion in the predominantly non-white school and then went to the Ontario Human Rights Commission, what do you think would happen?

Once the laugher subsided the case would be pushed to the side.

But that's not what happened with Krishna Nankissoor. He ran to the Commission and before his case was heard, he "settled" with the Peel Board.

As a taxpayer in Peel Region, whose tax dollars go to public education, I'd love to know what that settlement was. Was it a cash settlement? If so, I have a big problem with that because based on other promotions in the Region, I don't think he deserves it.

But that is the way of the Ontario Human Rights Commission. In the eyes of this bloated waste of time, every white person in Ontario is a racist and every non-white is victim.

The pressure was probably overwhelming at the board, so they gave-in.

And doesn't that tell us something about the real motives of Nankissoor? He's still not a department head, but he was willing to fore-go that for a "settlement." So what did he really want? So called justice... or money?

Sort of stinks doesn' it?

And what we still don't know is what kind of teacher Nankissoor is. Is he worthy of a promotion? Does he have the credentials? According to a letter in the Star, someone looked into his background and he's completed only one upgrade since 1997 and that happened in the last year, since he went cryin' to the Commission.

Once again, this provides a scary precedent for all of us, and shame on the Toronto Star once again for featuring this crap.

When you read the article another bizarre point is made. If a school is full of brown students then the school should be full of brown teachers. What?

Can you imagine if the same claims were made in reverse? A white teacher complained that there were too many brown teachers in a school predominantly attended by white kids?

I think, or at least I hope you get the point.

And as you read more into the story don't you find it interesting that the point is made that teachers should reflect the cultural aspect of their classes, in this particular article that Punjabi being spoken in the class in vital.

Let's turn it around again, and I've been witness to these cases. In Brampton for example there have been parents of white kids actually take their kids out of heavily populated "Punjabi" schools because too much time was being spent on translation and not enough time on the three "Rs." The South Asian kids hear nothing but Panjabi at home, and the parents leave it up to the schools to make them bi-lingual

A lot of time is spent catching up.

How do you think the parents of those white kids are looked upon? They're considered intolerant and racist. They don't want to assimilate. Meanwhile, there are pockets all over Peel Region that are becoming exclusively South Asian because parents want their kids to be amongst their own. I've seen it; I've heard them admit it.

If a white family moves out of a pocket, it's called racism.

If a South Asian family moves into a pocket, it's called culture.

Its madness and it makes you wonder where it's all headed and the irony is, as long as we have bodies like the Ontario Human Rights Commission, and people like Krishna Nankissoor it's only going to get worse.

It's a wonderful country we live in and diversity is one of its greatest attributes but like most other things, its got to find its way unencumbered and naturally. People are generally good and they will find a way to co-exist if common sense is the leading contributor.

I live in Brampton and when my son has his friends over it gives me a great sense of pride. It's like the League of Nations. My son if officially non-white and he's Asian friends, South Asian friends, white friends and black friends.

They're colour blind when it comes to race and they're all making their way as best they can, on their own merit and conscious of their own personal responsibilities.

Not the stilted advantages of the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

There are three things that make my blood boil. Wife beaters, animal abusers and forced marriages - in no particular order I might add, it all depends on the situation.

I got up Saturday morning and went through the various e-papers and happened upon an article in the Toronto Star about forced marriages and it made me shake by head - and of course, made my blood boil.

Talk about infuriating, and from so many angles. In its purest form, a forced marriage is not only archaic and selfish and silly, in most cases it's racist.

Imagine your average white Canadian man refusing to let his daughter marry someone because of their colour or religion? He immediately would be labeled an intolerant, trailer park Archie Bunker asshole. But for some reason, when it happens within the South Asian community, where it's most prominent, there's an air of understanding or tolerance.

Like most things that deal with race and religion in our confused little country, there's always politically correct attempt to understand it as long as it doesn't involve the white guy.

It's culture they say. It's tradition. It's the way it's always been done. Cool, and I'll accept all that if it doesn't happen on Canadian soil. It doesn't make it right that they're still living in the dark ages in India, but there are enough things in Canada to fix without having to worry about a third world country with something as oppressive as a caste system.

In Canada, forced marriages should be declared illegal. Any attempt by parents to force their child to marry someone against their wishes should be reported to authorities and be dealt with severely. This is no better than the slave trade or human trading that every decent society has worked so hard to prevent or snuff out.

Maybe I'm too rational, or I've always been too distanced from religion, but as the human species evolves I can't help but think that rationality should take over in many instances.

In the year 2009, regardless of race or religion or status, the idea of one person forcing another to marry someone against their wishes is simply not acceptable. There is no excuse for it, there is reason for it and there should be zero tolerance for it.

It is wrong.

The stories referred to in the Star article are shocking and we should all take notice because it's happening all around us. Cultural strength within some communities has reduced some children to objects, objects to offer someone else to keep a culture or a race intact, objects to satisfy prehistoric beliefs.

And this should be far reaching. If parents coerce their children out of the country and force the marriage of a Canadian child on foreign soil they should be charged immediately upon their return and the marriage should not be recognized and any documentation initiated to bring the "new husband" to Canada should be dumped into the garbage.

That's another motive of these forced marriages, easy access to Canada.

And let's not try to play games through this. In the Star article the point is made that this problem is a cross-cultural and cross-racial issue. If you want to beat the bushes long enough you can find examples of forced marriage within every race, religion and culture including the polygamists out in BC who are conveniently referred to in the Star.

Of course this is an attempt to draw white boy into the fray, but make no mistake about it, this is decidedly a South Asian practice.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in BC is a cult and can't be compared to the systemic practices of the South Asian community. Neither is right, but one vastly differs from the other.

And I have to laugh at the headline of the Star article. "Forced to wed: 'They think they're doing what's best for the child." .... To my mind just another politically correct attempt to justify this on some level.

Anyone with half a brain in their head knows this is wrong and no level of rationale can justify it.

Don't kid yourself, these parents do it for themselves because they're very selfish, extremely intolerant but mostly racist.

Is this political correctness gone too far? I think so, as a matter of fact I know so.

But given the new Canada, despite it being racist and over the top, it's not too hard to believe.

It's what we've become, a nation of over-reactive politically correct nitwits desperately trying to come up with the next thing that will save the world, or at least put the white Canadian male in his place.

Can you imagine if anybody in this country ever came out with the declaration that they were going to dis-continue something based on the fact that someone was black, brown, yellow or olive?

The student union at Carlton University has decided to discontinue their support of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation because somewhere in their whacked out world they latched onto the unfounded belief that CF affects mostly white adult males.

This is not true, in fact there is more than enough proof that this disease does not choose its victims on any level, but that didn't stop the Carlton gang from plunging forward with their a righteous gesture that does nothing but do what they're apparently trying to prevent.

Discriminate.

These feeble minded little twits are beyond comprehension, they go to bloody university but they weren't smart enough to think this thing through. Apparently the motion was kick-started by a few radicals who became delirious with the thought of killing something that supposedly benefitted only the white guy.

They actually issued a statement that boasted they supported a motion to withdraw support because they want fundraising to be as "inclusive as possible," and "CF has recently been revealed to affect white people and primarily men."

Aren't white males included in inclusive?

Not in the new Canada.
