Amsterdam (AFP) – Faced with an increasingly segregated education system, Dutch immigrant children have taken to the streets of their ethnically mixed Amsterdam neighbourhood seeking “white” pupils to attend their schools and help their integration.
Around 100 schoolchildren — Arabs, Turks, Africans, Moroccans — accompanied by their parents and teachers, wore provocative dazzling white T-shirts emblazoned with “Is this white enough for you?”.
So the left is upset because Middle Eastern, North African, and African students are often being put into separate schools from Dutch children. They are alleging that this is segregation motivated by white racism (of course), and they have adopted the shameful (yet typical) left wing/SJW strategy of using children as propaganda pieces. In this case, they are going house to house with their kids asking people to send white children to their schools. They children are wearing white shirts that say “is this white enough for you.” There are two possible reasons for this phenomenon which I will address shortly, but first, I would like to address the baseless and ludicrous accusation of white racism or meanness.
None of these people are native to Europe, and Europeans are under no obligation to let them in or do anything for them at all. These people come in and use public services paid for by European, many of them live off of welfare paid for by Europeans. Europeans are not beholden to the foreigners, the foreigners are beholden to the Europeans. Under the circumstances, it is not appropriate for them to turn around and complain against their hosts. If they cannot live with the host, or if the host is truly being mean, then the option of returning to their HOME country is always there. Europeans are under no obligation to adjust their culture or standard of living to accommodate foreigners.
Now for the real causes…
One of my best friends happens to be from The Netherlands/Holland. Children in the public school system there are required to take tests which assess their abilities. Where they will be placed for the next school year is dependent upon the outcome of those tests. Basically, they have a fast track and a slow track. The more intelligent children go to one type of school, and the less intelligent go to another. I fully approve of this system. The smarter children should be free to learn at the level of their abilities, unencumbered by their less intelligent peers.
In the US they throw everyone together into the same school, and the teacher has to teach to the level of the slowest students in the class, while the smarter kids end up getting bored because they are not being challenged. At the high and middle school levels there are some options for Advanced Placement classes, but that is not the case for elementary.
As a result of their system in Holland, both the learning and social dynamics are much better for the more intelligent students. My friend, who has a very similar personality to mine, got in no fights going all the way through school. Physical violence, threats, and intimidation were not one of the dynamics of his school system. My experience was considerably more difficult. On my first day in 7th grade I got into a fight with literally everyone in the locker room. I had a good number of physical situations like that in middle school, and three incidents in high school where someone assaulted me. People of lower intelligence are more easily given to violence, while those of higher intelligence tend to have higher concerns, but I digress…
It is a good possibility that the reason why the Muslim Middle Easterners and Africans are put in a different school is due to their lower level of performance. It’s not up to the Dutch to change their system to accommodate immigrants which they did not even have to let in. It is up to the immigrants to adjust themselves to the standards of Holland, and if they cannot adapt to life there then they should relocate back to their home country. There is no one stopping them from going back.
It is also possible that these are private schools. If so, then it is entirely possible that parents are pulling their children out of those schools in order to put them into environments which are more favorable to them. However, that does not make the Dutch people mean or “racist.” The primary concern of every parent must be the well-being and safety of their children, and an environment which is full of Muslims and tribal 3rd worlders is not a safe environment. Parents are not obligated to risk the personal safety of their children in order to make other children’s parents feel better about themselves or their children. Nor are any parents obligated to someone else’s kids, especially not to the detriment of their own kids.
This is just more left wing SJW insanity. Honestly, I don’t know what exactly they are trying to push for here, although besmirching white people and attempting to pin racism on them, again, is certainly a stop along the way, and perhaps an ancillary goal. My guess is that their end goal has something to do with getting some sort of handout, or campaigning for more immigration. Since Islam seems to be involved it’s entirely possible that they are using this as a ploy to further the cause of Islam (bringing in more Muslims, enacting Sharia). Whatever it is, the end result can be nothing other than the dismemberment of another advanced and peaceful western country.
A lot of people have this notion that everyone is equal, and everyone is the same. Not only is this notion demonstrably false, but furthering this delusion is ultimately harmful to everyone on all sides of the issue. When different groups are held to the same standard they do not always perform equally. Acknowledging this fact has nothing to do with bearing any sort of racial animus.
When it comes to Islam things get a little more complicated. Christian Middle Easterners are most certainly the intellectual equals of Europeans. Muslims are clearly and demonstrably not. It could be that this is due to their religion impeding their ability to think. After all, they seriously believe that Muhammed split the moon, and that it is alright to marry nine year old girls. It could also be that they are less intelligent do to the dysgenic aspects of Islam. They have been killing intelligent people in their home countries for over a thousand years. If a person questions Islam they can, and are, accused of blasphemy and killed. After a few hundred years or this, it’s going to take a toll on the gene pool.
If someone showed up with a shirt that said “is this white enough for you” or some other similar yet equally absurd statement with the goal of attempting to shame me into sympathy for them, I would say “No, if you really want to be white you need to start by abandoning Islam, which is thoroughly antithetical to our culture and way of life.” If there was no Islam involved but all other factors were the same I would inform them that I am under no obligation to pander to their feelings. It is time we stopped allowing ourselves to be intimidated by people who hate us, who are always going to hate us, and who are just trying to shame us into acquiescing to our own hurt.
