Here is a link to the bill:


Public School Civil Rights Act of 1984 - Eliminates inferior Federal court jurisdiction to issue any order requiring the assignment or transportation of students to public schools on the basis of race, color, or national origin. Permits individuals and school boards to seek relief from court orders made prior to this Act unless the court makes certain findings, including:

(1) that the acts giving rise to the order intentionally and specifically caused the segregation;

(2) that no other remedy would work; and

(3) that the benefits of the order outweigh its economic, social, and educational costs. Lists remedies which remain available for unconstitutional segregation.

This will be used to push the same "Ron Paul is a racist" mantra, but how? When the Bill makes specific exemptions for situations motivated by segregation... But many people will disregard any logic or brain power needed to understand it in its entirety. Ignorance is so much more fun.

Contrary to what many believe, dissolving the Department of Education will not result in "an end to public education", it will simply return that duty to the states where it belongs. Unfortunately, many of my fellow zombies dont have enough remaining brain cells to understand this simple concept.

But this proposed legislation was in response to yet another Federal mandate that required local schools to bus White kids to Black neighborhoods and Black kids to White neighborhoods...sounds crazy I know.

Like most government programs, this too failed and was incredibly unpopular.


In a Gallup poll taken in the early 1970s, very low percentages of whites (4%) and blacks (9%) supported busing outside of local neighborhoods.[3]

Critics point out that children in the Northeast were often bused from integrated schools to less integrated schools.[3] The percentage of Northeastern black children who attended a predominantly black school increased from 67% in 1968 to 80% in 1980 (a higher percentage than in 1954).[3]

Busing is claimed to have accelerated a trend of middle-class relocation to the suburbs of metropolitan areas.[3] Many opponents of busing claimed the existence of "white flight" based on the court decisions to integrate schools.[3] Such stresses led white middle-class families in many communities to desert the public schools and create a network of private schools.[3]

Ultimately, even many black leaders, from Wisconsin State Rep. Annette Polly Williams, a Milwaukee Democrat, to Cleveland Mayor Michael White, have come to the conclusion that it is patronizing to think that minority students need to sit next to a white student to learn, and as such led efforts to end busing.[19]

Due to these efforts and the fact that housing patterns had changed, by the early 1990s, most school districts had been released from court supervision and ceased using mandatory busing to try to desegregate schools.

When will people learn, you cant legislate attitudes of hate, bias or stupidity. More often than not, it backfires. Changes in attitudes occur over time through real education, understanding and love, not through force.

About time all the anti-Paul stuff started flaring up, a good sign that the MSM is terrified that this whole belief that there is just no way Ron Paul could be elected is a hoax, because he's winning right now.

Of-course, but its surpassing the level of absurdity.

Soon the headline will read: "Ron Paul farted in an elevator full of Black people".

Oh, great. With some of our newer laws, I'm pretty sure that gives enough leeway for a terrorist charge of some sort, claim of chemical attack, or environmental pollution allegations ON TOP of the hate crime likely to be alleged.
