Colleges began eliminating entrance exams, stating that making students take exams was racist. Now, students being admitted can’t do well enough to pass the course. Will colleges reinstate entrance exams and have more rigorous barriers to entry? Of course not! If students can’t pass the course, then grades have got to go! Grades are now racist.

Of course they are. This is how we got to the point where only 19 percent of Maryland students are performing math that is appropriate for their grade level, and some schools in Baltimore have NO students who were proficient in math. When you account for reading as well, less than 5 percent of students are reading and performing arithmetic at grade level. So if Baltimore students can’t read or write, they must not be attending college, right?

Wrong. More than 43 percent of Baltimore high school graduates go on to attend college, but since they find it impossible to graduate, they will no longer receive grades of any kind. It won’t be long before a college degree is worthless, no matter what the major is.

Why stay in college? Why go to night school?
Gonna be different this time
Can’t write a letter, can’t send a postcard,
I can’t write nothing at all
This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco,
This ain’t no fooling around

And the dumbing down of America continues…
There are already employers who show a preference for older workers and certain colleges; as this continues, that preference will only grow.
And college graduation rates among Blacks will continue to fall and Whites will be blamed even more… Unfortunately, the cycle will continue until the country fundamentally changes, which will involve more pain than anyone can imagine.
