This is known as being aware of your surroundings. You have to do that in liberal schools.

You might be right Dems back in the day, were those wearing the white hoods - and the white society decided it was better to keep them in those neighborhood thus creating the same-o mentality. That has been hard to break even until today. I agree tear down the hoods n give those who need help a voucher but through out the city not in one area. Educating a different lifestyle, would produce a better society, but, as rental property is owned by the wealthy - never happen. They want to keep the status quo and actually increase the lower class by making it even harder for the middle class to survive. How the money is spent is what you end up with eventually. It is a fact that those people who leave the neighborhoods, become very successful adults.

Now the comment about the teacher being a liberal is just a guess. It is very possible she brought her intolerant views into the classroom and allowed a verbal confrontation to escalate. Does this mean she should get beaten? No, but heroes can't be everywhere. It is the responsibility of teachers to de-escalate conflict if they live in a liberal area where children are not held responsible for their actions or where people will not step in to help you.
Yes, being in a safe neighborhood/town/city/state is always good but there is a down side to it. People can become too sheltered and ignorant of the real world.

Yes. And if they become teachers in inner city schools, they might say something that angers them. How they deal with conflict is very different from how wealthier families deal with conflict.

Yes it's worse. Physical violence is not simply a different way of resolving conflict. It's a crime.

I agree. So why are these children returning to school?

If it had been two white kids and a black teacher, the country would be in a rage over a racist attack.

Well, this isnít true many subsaharan countries and cities have a lower homicide rate than the U.S some even have a lower homicide rate than U.S whites.

Also if you look at other African countries their are many countries with low homicide rates even lower than these but then the crime rates are significantly higher so it would be more of a misnomer to put them. Most African countries donít have gang warfare hence Africa as a whole has a lower homicide rate than South America. Even if you take out the top 4 African countries all in the South (South Africa/Botswana/Namibia/Lesotho) out of 54, and take out the North African nations of Africa, roughly 5. Africa has a significantly lower murder rate than the Carribean and African Americans in fact at around 6 per 100,000 itís much closer to America than many might think. Most of Africa has very little gang violence and if a country isnít war torn. Murder is normally not a problem. This is best exemplified by the existence of Hargeisa, Somaliland. Itís in Northern Somalia and isnít wartorn so itís seen as relatively safe, to the point where Somali parents afraid of their kids getting caught up in gang violence in London actually sending their kids to Hargeisa and Nairobi, Kenya. The thing with most African cities since gang violence isnít a major problem the homicide rate is often low but the homicide is shared with robberies gone wrong and terrorism as well as domestic incidents. U.S in some cities 25%-60% of all violence is gang violence. Then domestic is the next biggest category and stranger on stranger deaths is a rare occurrence hence African cities feel more dangerous because a significant percent of the murders come from stranger vs stranger violence so a city with 6 per 100,000 in Africa will have out of control property crime and robberies and the like, it will have a corresponding number of deaths due to robberies gone wrong, and maybe a couple domestic incidents. A U.S city with the same rate could be either wholly domestic incidents with a few gang related slayings or switched and a much lower rate of homicide from robberies gone wrong and terrorism. Hence the African city with the same rate as the U.S city feels much more dangerous.

LOL I lived in Oakland for 10 years and have two friends who've been shot "for real". Relax.

Even your people know this, we White people maybe racist but you still prefer to live with us than your own because your communities tend to devolve into dysfunctional messes.
As an African sounds more like bribery and trying to separate an American from his money than black people donít give money. Black people give money all the time in Africa as tips much more in America actually. Most people just call it bribery. If you get stopped by police and you want to move along quickly or not get hassled and go about your day itís customary to tip the police to go on ahead. Tipping (read bribery) is a problem and your basically encouraging social dysfunction by doing so.
