Racial Quota Punishment

There are now racial quota limits for punishment in the Minneapolis schools. On the surface, this may look like a favor to blacks. But only on the surface. Anyone with common sense knows that letting a kid get away with bad behavior is an open invitation to worse behavior in the future.
