GAPS AND MAN AT YALE: The city too busy to go to Yale!

FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2018

Lemon does Atlanta:
Don Lemon has seen rivers.

Lemon called attention to this situation on Monday, first in a graduation speech at Clark Atlanta University, then by playing part of the speech on his nightly cable news program.

Lemon hosts his own program on CNN for two hour each weekday night. Still, that's less than the three or four hours Lemon should be on the air, just in terms of pure greatness.

We assume that's what Lemon meant when he spoke at Clark Atlanta. He's a major member of a major elite—but he isn't major enough, as he at last disclosed.

Below, you see the part of the speech which aired on CNN. Here's how Lemon chose to end Monday night's two-hour program:
LEMON (5/21/18): Before we leave you tonight, I want to share a great experience that I had today. I was honored to give the commencement address at Clark Atlanta University, a historically black university. Those graduates are amazing.

And I wanted to speak to them about the world we live in and why they matter, especially when we so often see the incidents of blatant outright racism, even coming from the White House.

I wanted each of those graduates to know the power they have and the history that makes them the strong men and women they are. Listen:

(VIDEO CLIP OF SPEECH)

LEMON: Are you ready? Are you ready? OK, well, let's go. I came here to tell you that slavery was not a choice.

(CHEERING)

No matter who tells you slavery was a choice, no matter what exalted names that they may bestow upon themselves. Jesus, whoever, slavery was not a damn choice. I came in to tell that your blackness is so beautiful that it almost hurts my eyes to look out at you.

(CHEERING)

That I almost have to look away because you are so stunningly beautiful, all of you. The skinny to the thick. The short to the tall. The brother with the Afro and the one with the fade, OK? And not a day goes by that I am not underestimated, still at 52 years old, that I am not—

There you go. All right, black don't crack.

That I am not underappreciated, that I am not undervalued, and still I rise and still I rise and still I rise. And you want to know why? You want to know why? Because I had no choice. And you have no choice.

Even with everything I just said, there is no excuse for you and there is no excuse for me either. You built this. We built this. And when I say we built this, I'm talking about our ancestors. I'm not just talking about Clark Atlanta University. I'm not just talking about Atlanta. I'm not just talking about Georgia. I'm talking about America.

This is America. Don't catch you slipping up. Don't catch you slipping up. Look what I'm whipping up. This is what I'm whipping up. This speech that you need to hear. All right?

[END OF PROGRAM]
According to Lemon, enslavement wasn't a choice. no matter what You-Know-Who said!

And not only that! Not a day goes by that Lemon isn't underestimated, undervalued and underappreciated! He's on the air two hours each night, when it ought to be three or four!

According to Lemon, this is the way he helped those Clark Atlanta graduates understand "the world we live in and why they matter." In the part of the speech he chose to air, he told them the grads that they look good—and that he, CNN celebrity Don Lemon, is grossly underappreciated and undervalued!

Anthropologically speaking, we might draw a lesson from this somewhat peculiar event. We humans may be inclined toward self-importance, and towards a possible disregard for the larger needs and interests of others.

This may be especially true the more we move up the ladder. As we've told you again and again, no one escapes the maws of "cable news" with their heart and head intact.

Lemon didn't tell the college grads how much he's paid by CNN. For ourselves, we were left wondering if his compensation even satisfies federal minimum wage requirements.

But as we watched that excerpt from Lemon's address, we thought again about the microaggressions of Yale. We thought about the low-income students of New Haven, Hartford, Stamford and Bridgeport—and even of the low-income students of metro Atlanta, which is often described as "the city too busy to go to Yale."

That moniker has never made a lot sense, but then again, neither did Lemon's address. But as we listened to Lemon bellyache, we thought about the large achievement gaps of Atlanta, the city in which he spoke and the home of CNN.

We tried to think if we've ever seen Lemon talk about those very large gaps. We tried to recall: Have we ever seen him discuss the deserving kids who struggle beneath their yoke? That said, does anyone at CNN address this aspect of its home city? The channel likes to show footage of lava flows, but what about discussions of Atlanta's low-income kids?

We'll let you conduct the search for those discussions! For today, let's take a quick look at the data with which you won't hear discussed in the increasing number of shouting matches conducted by Lemon on "the cable channel too busy to give a goshd*m."

The sprawling region called Metro Atlanta is served by some of the nation's largest school systems, including the Atlanta Public Schools itself. Without attempting to pick and choose, let's limit ourselves to three of these systems, then consider the state as a whole.

The gaps are very large. The burdens they impose are great.

Granted, none of what we'll show you today can compare to the offenses visited upon Lemon, who is, after all, a member of an elite. Still, we would be inclined to suggest that even mistreated people like Lemon might set aside a few crumbs of their time for the less significant problems faced, let's say, by the little girl who will be starting first grade in these school systems this fall.

Once again, we're using the data from Professor Reardon's nationwide study.
If Lemon could briefly get over himself, he might ask his corporate owners to spend a tiny bit of time on this modern version of "the problem we all live with:"
Where the average student stood
Grades 3-8, reading and math
Atlanta Public Schools:

White kids: 2.9 years above grade level
Black kids: 1.5 years below grade level
According to Reardon's data, the gap there stood at 4.4 years—presumably at or near the start of sixth grade!

That's a gigantic gap. We'll guess the district's relatively small white population (12 percent) is unusually affluent. This would help explain the high average score by white kids—but the river there is wide.

That said, The DeKalb County School District is larger than the Atlanta Public Schools, and it contains something like ten percent of Atlanta. The data there looked like this:
Where the average student stood
Grades 3-8, reading and math
DeKalb County School District:

White kids: 2.2 years above grade level
Black kids: 1.5 years below grade level
Not bad! Only 3.7 years at the start of sixth grade! For the record, this system's student population in grades 3-8 was 70% black, only ten percent white, according to Reardon's data.

Sports fans have heard of Fulton County because of the Atlanta Braves. According to Reardon, the gap in the Fulton County School System looked like this:
Where the average student stood
Grades 3-8, reading and math
Fulton County School System:

White kids: 2.2 years above grade level
Black kids: 1.0 years below grade level
According to the system itself, the district's current student population is 42% black, 29% percent white.

These three systems aren't the largest in Metro Atlanta. The Gwinnett County Public Schools and the Cobb County School District, the two largest in the region, were among the nation's 25 largest in 2014.

That said, you can't get the fullest picture of the situation on a district-by-district basis. Here's one of the gaps which existed statewide on the 2017 Naep:
Average scores, 2017 Naep
Georgia, Grade 8 math

White kids: 293.28
Black kids: 264.03
Hispanic kids: 274.67
Asian-American kids: insufficient sample
Those gaps are smaller than the statewide gaps in Connecticut. It's also true that black and Hispanic kids in Georgia outscored their counterparts from The Nutmeg State, a state in which we liberals mainly worry about the experiences of students forced to go to Yale.

Meanwhile, back in Atlanta, it was all about Lemon and Clark. By his own admission, he's underappreciated and undervalued every day; after watching his speech excerpt, we weren't entirely sure that he gets paid at all. Meanwhile, his channel devotes tons of time to lava flow, none to the struggling kids of its home city and state.

Dr. King would have understood. We humans! The closer we get to the mountaintop, the more we may be inclined to forget about our lessers so far below.

The gaps are vast in metro Atlanta. When will Don Lemon, huge cable star, rise above his own misuse and remind his owners to get off their ascots and pretend that they actually care?

Still coming: Gaps and pseudo-solutions

  1. Who is Tammy Bruce?

    Last January 30, Bruce appeared on Hannity & Colmes for an “Interview on Partisan Politics” (Fox transcript). She wasn’t yet an official “Fox analyst;” she appeared as author of the brilliant book where she said that the totalitarian Rosa Parks was an avatar of the new “thought police.” As usual, her name was Bruce—but her manner was frank. She quickly admitted that she was a lefty—then began trashing all those on the left. “This is my argument coming from inside the left,” she confided. “We’re training the entire political spectrum to use name-calling to silence people, to stop debate.” Of course, conservatives aren’t like that, Bruce sadly admitted. “You find it here, I think, being on this program and this network as well, that, in fact, the right, the general right, don’t use that tactic, want to hear new ideas and don’t name-call.” Reporting in from a Planet Named Neptune, T-Bruce auditioned her pleasing new act, in which she swears she’s from The Left, then heaps piles of praise on The Right.

    Let me repeat: She quickly admitted that she was a lefty—then began trashing all those on the left.

      You’ve found a guest appearance by Tammy Bruce on a Fox “News” program. You say she claimed to be a liberal, and then slandered the left and praised the right. And then you imply that this person is just like TDH.

      Tammy Bruce may have once worked for NOW, but if she was ever a liberal, it’s been time out of mind. She has described herself as a ”gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, Tea Party Independent Conservative." She was a big supporter of Sarah Palin. Some liberal. But she had no trouble fooling you.

      Does TDH trash the left? Sure. Is it slander, or are liberal media types as lazy and as addicted to narrative and controversy as he says? Brush up on your reading skills before you answer.

      Does TDH excuse the right like Bruce? Let’s take a look. Here’s a quote from TDH on 5/15/13:

      “…the Fox News Channel, where disgraceful people like Huckabee and O’Reilly keep refusing to give their channel's viewers even the most basic facts.”

      Once you learn to read, it’s easy to figure these things out.

      By the way, by a (very) rough rule of thumb, 2.2 years is roughly equivalent to not knowing what you’re talking about.

    3. Bruce describes herself as a “classic liberal,” meaning she would have been a liberal in the American sense in the 1860s.

    4. We liberals are the problem now too! We’re lazy and we aren’t very smart. We exude a moral squalor.
      We’re lazy and dumb and our morals are bad. There’s little reason for people to like us. Presumably, nobody does.

  3. Does it help or hinder black graduates to emphasize racism? IMHO it hurts them. The reason is that opportunities are all around. All they have to do is qualify.

    3. David, you are supposed to recruit black actuaries from schools such as Clark Atlanta, not Yale. Seriously, if you spread your job announcement so that attendees of schools with plentiful black students get to see it, you will have plenty of black applicants to choose from.

      In your case, since you are in California, you might try recruiting from CSU Dominguez Hills or San Francisco State if you are in the North. I have had some excellent black students in my statistics classes, so I know they exist. If you hide your job announcements where black students don't get to see them, you are playing a game in which you deliberately avoid interviewing black candidates and then claim no such applicants could be found. It is old as time. Or you call a recruiter and tell them you specifically want them to find you black applicants and they will head hunt known black actuaries in your area. You could do that yourself at conferences of actuaries or similar professional gatherings. If you guys were sued, saying you couldn't find any would not protect you from a bias judgment, and for good reason.

    4. Good suggestions, Anon 5:38, for hiring a trainee. In this case, I was seeking an actuary with around half their exams passed and several years of experience. We used professional recruiters who specialize in actuaries.

    5. Anon 2:47, are you suggesting that Kaepernick had trouble being hired because he's black? Nonsense. He was a somewhat over the hill backup QB who behaved in ways that offended millions of fans and would make a problem for team morale. Why would a team want to add someone like that?

      AnonymousMay 25, 2018 at 4:08 PM -- Yes, I'm saying that the over-focus on racism is hurting black people because racism isn't their biggest problem today. In my own field, blacks are held back because relatively few have successfully passed actuarial exams. You'd help them more by setting up study groups.

      --------------
      Like all the phony's who say they can't find qualified employees, we already have an easy solution for their fake problem. Pay labor. If you want people to put in the time, effort and upfront financial capital to educate themselves and meet your work requirements, you offer them compensation that will give them the impetus to do so.

      Safe assumption that this idiot agrees with Trump that the NFL players that protested during the National Anthem last year don't belong in this Country.

      He and Trump are following solid precedent.

      This a a 1934 newspaper clip (courtesy of PZ Myers of Pharangula):

      "German Football Club Banned For 12 Months.

      BERLIN Sunday

      The Karlsruhe Football Club has been prohibited from playing during 1934 because the team failed to give the Nazi salute when entering the field to play against a French club from Nancy at Metz in December.

      The failure of the team to give the salute is alleged to be due to the Frenchmen threatening that they would not play and the Germans would receive no compensation if the salute was given because it was feared that the spectators would riot.

      All sports clubs were forbidden to take part in French engagements until the incident had been settled."

      Morons!

    2. The real problem is that black academic ability lags several years behind whites and Asians, on average. IMHO this is caused by a difference in culture. When black parents care deeply about education, they can raise children who do well academically. E.g., read about the childhood of Ben Carson. Wiki says "but both [Ben Carson and his brother] improved when their mother limited their time watching television and required them to read and write book reports on two library books per week."

      Delete
    3. "When black parents care deeply about education.."
      As opposed to putting food on the table.

      Getting the nation's businesses to pay labor, will free up parents to spend more time with their kids and help them focus on educational achievement, instead of both parents working (sometimes multiple jobs) to make ends meet.
      The deeper question is how do we get the nations businesses to pay labor. Perhaps tracking wage-growth to corporate profit growth, executive pay growth, and growth in business efficiencies is the answer.

  11. Effective love spell to get your Ex back urgently
    Hello
    I'm so excited share this testimony,
    i sincerely hope my post gets read
    and hopefully helps somebody along
    the line my husband took my case
    to court for a divorce. he said that
    he never wanted to stay with me
    again, and that he didn’t love me
    anymore. So he packed out of the
    house and made me and my
    children passed through severe
    pain. I tried all my possible means to
    get him back, after much begging
    but all to no avail and he confirmed
    it that he has made his decision and
    he never wanted to see me again.
    So on one evening as i was coming
    back from work i met an old friend
    of mine who asked of my husband.
    So i explained every thing to her so
    she told me that the only way i can
    get my husband back, is to visit a
    great spell caster called Dr Ahmed
    utimate, who has really worked for
    her too to get her husband. So i
    never believed in spell but i had no
    other choice than to follow her
    advice. Then she gave me the email
    address of the spell caster, So the
    next morning i sent a mail to the
    address she gave to me and the
    spell caster assured me that i will
    get my husband back the next day.
    What an amazing statement!! I never
    believed so he spoke with me and
    told me everything that i need to do.
    Then the next morning So
    surprisingly my husband who didn’t
    call me for the past seven months
    gave me a call to inform me that he
    was coming back. So Amazing!! So
    that was how he came back that
    same day with lots of love and joy,
    he apologized for his mistake and
    for the pain he caused me and my
    children. Then from that day our
    relationship was now stronger than
    how it were before, So i will advice
    you out there if you have any
    problem contact Prophet Dr Ahmed
    utimate he is real and always ready
    to help you solve your problem
    Email him at:
    Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/

My Name is Dora Judy i want to tell you all my life story about A Spell Caster Who help me to get pregnant, So me and my husband have been trying to get a baby for the last 10 years now and we have had no luck.

I'm thinking it could be a problem with me but I've never had any symptoms of any problems. My husband does smoke and have the occasional Priest ink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional Priest ink. i know i'm slightly overweight but that shouldn't affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me about Dr Sam and told me to contact this spell caster that help her aunty, then i contact the man on this email: Supremespellcast@gmail.com, after three months the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Dr Sam for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: {Supremespellcast@gmail.com Or Supremespellcast@yahoo.com} whatsApp him on +2347087462033 and he will also save your marriage or your relationship problems.
