Arvind Dilawar, an independent writer and “journalist”, has written a piece in the New York Daily News claiming the Santa Fe school was the result of “white supremacy”. It is interesting how the editors of a major newspaper like the NY Daily News can allow such a bias and bigoted commentary to be published, even as an opinion.
Dilawar was arrested for robbery last fall, 2017, for an incident that took place at an anti-Trump protest at New York’s Columbia University. His piece highlights recent “white” school shooters including Nikolas Cruz from Florida…who happens to be Hispanic.
Like all the other liberal media reporters and commentators, Dilawar makes sweeping assumptions and leaps of logic in his emotion filled commentary. He makes a racist argument against whites for school shootings, but he ignores the daily murders and violence committed by minorities against minorities across the nation.
I was a nerdy, small kid, and I was occasionally bullied in school. But I had parents, teachers, and school administrators who would step in if necessary. I never felt the need to commit mass murder, and I never blamed whites, blacks, Hispanics, or anyone other than the bully.
Dilawar’s racist commentary should be challenged for its shallow emotionalism and blatant racism. Violence is a human problem, not a characteristic of race.
Public schools should educate, but they have policies that force them keep students that are disruptive and/or uninterested in learning. Those problem students should be removed and dealt with accordingly by their parents, administrators, doctors, and the law. We should recognize that permissive parenting, failures in the family structure, and liberal policies have created an environment in public schools where learning and safety have suffered. We need school safety and discipline, not limitations on the 2nd Amendment.
My opinion (which is published only in my humble blog) is that the school shooting in Santa Fe, TX shows, once again, there is a "school safety" problem in public schools, not a gun problem. Let’s not just react to mass school shootings, but let’s consider the many students whoare beaten and even stabbed on a daily basis in public schools across the country. This is a school safety problem, not a gun ownership problem or a white supremacy problem, as he claims.
Shame on Arvind Dilawar for being a racist, and shame on the New York Daily News for publishing his outrageous, hateful, divisive opinion.
