Jan 18 - Biden: Black parents need to take responsibility for educating their kids @ home

MG: I’m just going to drill down a little bit more on that.

You said during the September debate, when asked about reparations, that black parents should, among other things, make sure that you have the record player on at night.

In the September Democratic debate, Mr. Biden was asked about what responsibility Americans should have in confronting the legacy of slavery. He gave a rambling answer that began with segregation and then landed on parenting, saying that parents need to “make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the — make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school — a very poor background will hear four million words fewer spoken by the time we get there.” How specifically should the country confront its history of slavery, discrimination and plunder of black America?


Well, I think you’re taking that out of context, but that’s O.K.

MG: Actually, it wasn’t out of context.

No, well, O.K. The idea is that the responsibility rests on those who are still engaged in oppression to stop what they’re doing and pay for what they’ve done if it’s criminal. And if it’s not criminal, pay for it economically and change the law. So that’s the bottom line.



I remember how much trouble Barack got in when he said that parents, black parents, should take responsibility.

Mr. Obama drew ire for a June 2008 speech at a black church in Chicago that invoked his own absent father to tell African-American men that “responsibility does not end at conception.” That wasn’t my point. My point was to make it clear that there are a number of things we can do now to help parents who have been disadvantaged as a consequence of lack of opportunity to be able to provide more guidance and better guidance for themselves and their families. For example, we have one school psychologist for every 1,507 kids in public schools. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. We have virtually no social workers engaged anymore.


What I found was that if, in fact, the people — if I can make an analogy to my

father.

Mr. Biden grew up in a middle-class family in Scranton, Pa., and Wilmington, Del. During the 2008 campaign, he often described his resilient father, Joseph Robinette Biden Sr., as his most important influence in life.My father was a well-read, high-school-educated guy, and I had an opportunity to go to different schools and offered some scholarships, some academic, some relating to playing sports. And my dad was one of those guys who said, “You’re going to be a college man, no matter what.”


I used to say to him, “Why is that so important, Dad?” He said, “They can’t take it from you.” And so when I had an opportunity to visit campuses, I was surprised my father didn’t want to go. I asked my mom, “Why wouldn’t Dad go on campus? He’s been talking about this as long as I can remember.” She said: “Because he’s embarrassed. He won’t know what to say. He’s embarrassed. What happens if someone turns to him and says, ‘What about this or that or the other thing?’”



My wife has taught for the last — my deceased wife taught grade school. My present wife of 47 years now has taught in high school and grade school, I mean, junior high, high school, and now she’s a college professor, a community college professor.

Mr. Biden lost his first wife, Neilia, and their daughter in a car accident in 1972.And the people who don’t show up on the nights when there’s a parent-teacher meeting are not people who in fact don’t care, but folks from poor backgrounds. They don’t show up because they’re embarrassed. They’re embarrassed the teacher’s going to say — and it’s hard to say, “Well, I can’t read,” or “I don’t …”


I’m talking about not just people of color, but poor folks. And so there’s this about being able to give people a kind of help they desperately want without being embarrassed in getting the help, without being embarrassed that they’re seeking the help.

Jesse Wegman: Or they’re working a second job, right?

Well, yeah. Well, that’s true, but there’s also a good deal of it, and check with the educators, there’s a good deal is they just don’t know what to say many of them. They don’t show up. So that’s why my wife started this mentoring program, and she, in fact, works with those families, calls them privately and says, “Look, this is your son or your daughter, or blah, blah, blah. This is how we can be helpful this way,” embracing people. A lot has to do with, you know, we underestimate, I think, across the board, the degree of pride people have, their pride. They just want to be treated with some dignity and a lot of it doesn’t

*Disclaimer, I am black and have a first-hand perspective on this topic*

While I don't agree with EVERYTHING Biden said on this subject, he's not wrong.

I have several teachers in my family and they all teach at inner-city schools in various cities, and the parent engagement is horrendous. Aside from scarce turnout from parents, their engagement is severely lacking when they do show up.

With that being said, if we dig into the crux of the issues plaguing black parents, you'll find lots of single-parent households, incarcerated fathers, underemployed parent(s) f*ghting for their everyday survival.

Black parents (and other races) need help with the achievement of basic human needs and we can't expect much until many people get the help they desperately need.

This is actually correct, urban minority parents need more engagement in their children's education. Even if they aren't able to help with the more advanced subjects, they still need to be more involved in ensuring that their kids are actively making efforts to do good in school.

Either after school programs, being sure to encourage their kids to have a one on one with their teachers if they aren't understanding was being taught. If parents are vigilant and aware of everything going on in their kids education, that can make a huge difference.

big fu*ken facts. Its just goes to show you that parent see school as day care for the most part cause if they really cared they would home school their kids. fu*k that argument that kids needs social skills and learn how to get up in the morning. The sh*t kids have to deal with in school besides acutal work is bullsh*t. If I could ill home school my kids, their curriculum would be wayyyyyy more meaningful that what they got going on now.



they would only want to go to school to sh*t on other kids in class cause they light years ahead.

Hes right. I couldnt believe it was black kids on twitter saying they had never heard of the tulsa race riots or black wallstreet.

The parents should be doing that - my dad use to give me books like black no more on kwanzaa (we did christmas too)since i was 3. And hed make me read a chapter every day.

Its not that hard if you dont have low standards for black people

I thought all black ppl did that b4 i stopped being homeschooled

He words things awful though. ALL parents need to be engaged and continue to teach at home.
I will say though schools have a big issue with labelling children of color gifted/advanced.

He’s right let’s forgive him for sitting at home and thinking about all the ways he can icncarecerate black and Hispanic folks in a swift and smooth process destroying minority communities

Reagan gave you crack

Biden locked you up

We’re Not even dealing with those Glaring repercussions in 2020

This man didn’t just lock up black folks. My people felt it to.

Trump ain’t never did nothing like that

Your party made an actor who calls black people monkeys president - twice. B-but dems the real racidt vote for us



And he said it to another guy your party made president twice.

Meanwhile your current president and his dad at the time were being sued by black people for housing discrimination.
"It also charged that the company had required different rental terms and conditions because of race and that it had misrepresented to blacks that apartments were not available.

"

Then a decade later he thanked black people by calling for the execution of the central park 5 in the biggest paper in the country.




But nah trump love black people. Foh
