Suspensions Disproportionately Applied To Black Children Mean Racism Begins Early

Does racial bias in America begin inside public school classrooms?

Judge for yourself. A new study shows that America’s teachers and administrators frequently address behavioral problems with students strictly along racial lines.

The study, which was recently released by the journal Sociology of Education, shows that African-American students with behavioral problems are far more likely to be punished with expulsions, suspensions — and sometimes even arrested and forced into the criminal justice system — while white students are routinely steered into special education programs and treated for learning disabilities when they behave badly.

NYC Hospitals Ban Filming of ER Reality TV

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City hospitals will no longer allow the filming of reality TV in their wards without prior written consent.

According to the New York Post, the Greater New York Hospital Association said in a statement that the ban “effectively puts an end to ‘reality TV’ in New York’s emergency rooms.”

The ban was sparked by an April 2011 accident that claimed the life of an 83-year-old man struck by a garbage truck in Manhattan.

ABC “NY Med” filmed the efforts to save the victim and the exchanges between the doctors and his relatives. Although the family’s faces were obscured, the family said they recognized themselves when the show aired in August 2012.
