White Teacher in a Brown School - American Renaissance

Mad-dogging the gringo.

For 25 years I worked as a substitute teacher in a sanctuary city in California, and I would like to share a few of my experiences. The racial proportions in the schools have been roughly 75 percent Hispanic, 10 percent black, 6 percent Asian, and almost no whites but for a stray Russian or Armenian.
The students are generally lazy, abusive, and disrespectful. Rather than do the work assigned, most of them spend their time texting, listening to music on their iPods, playing with cell phone cameras and handheld games, talking about sex and gangs and fighting, and eating junk food. Doritos and candy bars are a favorite breakfast.
Why do they behave this way? Mexican culture does not value education. Also, we give everything to them for free, so it has little value in their eyes. In Mexico, they would have to pay for everything, including their books. In America, we give them free books, so they scrawl all over them and lose them.
What is more, they say openly they have come here to “reconquer” this area, which they claim we stole from them. They are utterly serious about this, and it is another reason for their disrespectful attitude. They act as though they were all tutored by the same teacher to hate whitey.
To make matters worse, there is constant racial tension between blacks and Hispanics. South Central Los Angeles used to be totally black, but Hispanic gangs chased most of the blacks out. The racial divisions are evident in the segregated seating in the cafeterias at lunch; blacks sit with blacks, browns with browns, and the tiny group of Asians sits in the corner hoping they won’t be beaten and robbed of their lunch money.
