I call shenanigans.
I just left teaching IT at the collegiate level (a trade school). There are two issues:
Not many black students enter IT programs. Don't ask me why. I have theories, but to voice them might open me to charges of racism. Suffice to say that I heard a black commentator recently bemoan how some black people denigrate other black people who try to better themselves. They call it "acting white."
IT is bettering yourself. It's "acting white."
The vast majority of High School graduates are now outright illiterate. They cannot read nor write nor perform the most basic math.
Want real fun? Try teaching binary logic and arithmetic to students who can count to ten if they remember to include both their thumbs.
I had students that were unaware that books had page numbers. Consider the implications of that, for a moment.
We have raised an entire generation of illiterate ignorami. Small wonder that this might include black people, who tend to be hurt even worse than whites in situations like this.
