I was born in these Twin Cities 82 years ago. Educationally, I attended the most scholastically advanced of the ten high schools in St. Paul, grades 9-12 then. No one was yet dumb enough to invent local junior high schools in the city.
Teachers were well educated, highly disciplined, and students civilized and obedient. If not, they WERE ATTENDED TO!
About ten per cent of this high school was Negro, an honorable term of that day. Grades were given representative of student accomplishment. Those who studied did well on tests and therefore received grades accordingly……very different from the year 1972 when I taught Modern Problems at a Minneapolis High School with 55% Black students of which about half bothered to show up regularly for classes, and grades generally offered to anyone in order to make them feel good. Local Black savages often huddled around the school campus, lying in waiting to cause trouble usually to those females who walked alone or in pairs. Teachers were ordered to park in an enclosed area surrounded by fencing for their own protection to make certain they would arrive into the classroom in once piece.
Teachers being spat on by blacks for being teachers, was an embarrassment to the establishment.
And then there were girlfriend wars black upon black within the building which flared occasionally…..including a shooting in the cafeteria one noon hour.
The local Minneapolis Tribune printed joy, fun, and learning at the school which was titled a Magnet School to entice white citizens to risk sending their youth there without being robbed or beaten. The year was AD 1972! Well-meaning people concerned about the community’s future lied and lied about the safety and quality of teaching and learning in order to pretend success and happiness, ignoring the violence, all of it caused by black hoodlums who even robbed teachers who were under threat of firing if they went public with their losses.
Everyone of importance wanted the biracial school to succeed academically whether it did so or not! Anyone critical about black violence against whites, robbing from teachers, attack students, both white and black, and lack of learning would be punished including bye-bye notices. Leftists of the day claimed whites deserved their victimhood to equal the preying ground. Crimes were universally of black origin. Many of their victims were black as well.
The building was torn down a couple of years later. It didn’t stop some local leftists of all colors and sexes ten and twenty years later to willfully lie in school and newspapers about racial southern style school, transportation, and business segregation.
Lying was a favorite political tool of leftists then as today for publicity and politics sake.
