How can Hillary Clinton eliminate Racism in America?

In a recent article, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has meet with civil rights activists to address concerns related to racism in America. It appears that the presidential hopeful does not have the sensitivity or the experience to tackle the problems that minorities are facing today. Hillary Clinton will need to address the source of all racism in America which begins in our educational system.

According to the article, Hillary Clinton: ‘Racism is America’s original sin’, Hillary Clinton plans to unveil an overcoming racism in America platform within the next few weeks. She has proposed to end private prisons and immigration centers which seem to be a hot topic for many civil rights activist. Hillary Clinton also wants to reform the criminal justice system as a method for eliminating racism in America. It appears that Hillary Clinton like many other presidential hopefuls are blowing smoke up the “racism problem in America” again.

What will make it impossible for Hillary Clinton to eliminate racism in America?

According to the Raccelerate Phenomenon, Hillary Clinton would be committing the equivalent of suicide if she and her staff were to appropriately end racism in America.

It means that she would have to go up against the media who is directly responsible for the Raccelerate Phenomenon. Even more important, without the Raccelerate Phenomenon, Hillary Clinton would not be able to run for president.

The second problem with the suggestions made by Hillary Clinton is that racism in America can only be eliminated by responding to the end product. It is paramount to a Black Box. A Black Box has an input, the Black Box, and then the output. If Hillary Clinton is sincere about ending racism in America she must respond to the inputs that are the cause. The input that continues to perpetuate racism in America is the educational system.

How does the education continue to perpetuate racism in America for which it appears that Hillary Clinton has no clue?

Education continues to perpetuate racism in America through classroom discrimination. Discrimination against marginalized students is a persistent problem in classrooms throughout the United States. When cultural awareness between White teachers and Black students is absent, the impending result is interference with effective instructional processes caused by frustration and alienation between White teachers and Black students.

Black students have difficulty accepting teachers as the primary source of knowledge due to becoming accustomed to sharing information on an equal basis with adults rather than the adult teaching them. Teachers treat Black students as though they are incapable decision makers that require their permission to do everything even though the student has had experience caring for younger brothers and sisters, teaching them safety and personal hygiene skills, and taking care of the home. Black students withdraw from the instructional process or become discontented with whatever the teacher does when the teacher hinders student spontaneity and enthusiasm and punishes the student by requiring the student to raise his or her hand in order to be recognized.

Teaching Black students requires creating a culturally compatible classroom that concentrates on developing motivation rather than classroom discipline and management techniques and the teaching process of handling material as well as content. Teachers can reach all of their students when they understand the ways in which culture influences the educational process. How students perceive and react to their classroom instructions may be more important in terms of influencing student outcomes than the quality of teaching behavior. Black students will continue to carry their own culture into the classroom and they will continue to misunderstand their middle-class teacher as profoundly as she or he misunderstands them.

Hillary Clinton can only eliminate racism in America by eliminating racism in the classroom.

Has Hillary Clinton, as many other political candidates, pulled to wool over the eyes over Black America again?

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L. Campbell the driving force behind Classroom Racism Exterminator is a dynamic figure and a constant source of motivation for us. He has a Bachelors of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology, Math Education, a Masters in Education Administration and also holds a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Dr. Campbell is a well known personality throughout the nation. He has lectured at various events including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference and a lot of local churches. He is a personality well dedicated towards eliminating the plague of racism from our classrooms and helping every child recognize his/her true potential not the color of their skin. He realizes how a child would feel if he/she was made to think they are worthless human beings. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell is compassionate and related to the experiences and therefore this initiative is a constant and continual effort to eliminate racism manifested in us, completely from the classroom and from our society.
