What Are the Best Schools in the Kansas City Metroplex?

What Are the Best Schools in the Kansas City Metroplex?

By J. Randolph Swope

Short answer:  there are none.

While Pembroke Hill was long considered the quintessential WASP school of Kansas City, it has succumbed to the pressures of Cultural Marxism.  Through massive affirmative action, 23% of the student body is now minority. In short, my friends, Pembroke Hill is going ghetto. It's not worth the money.

And what about minorities?  While North Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Koreans) are not a problem - in fact, they're usually great students - blacks and mestizos will inevitably bring down the quality of a school. Yes, despite all the propaganda you've heard, racial differences in IQ do exist.

As Robert Weissberg notes in Bad Students, Not Bad Schools, only a small percentage of a school has to become black before the school begins to decline academically.

It's odd that school administrators are bending over backwards to promote diversity, when the largest study ever done on diversity shows that racial diversity destroys institutions

While many public school districts in the Kansas City area were at one time exceptional (e.g. Blue Valley, Shawnee Mission, Park Hill,  Lee's Summit, etc.) all these have the same Trojan Horse:  apartment complexes.  These apartment complexes are now the landing pads of blacks and mestizos fleeing from the inner city, bringing multiple problems to these school districts.  Not to mention that many public school educators are idiots who are more interested in promoting political correctness than knowledge.  (Read the outstanding blogger EdRealist for documentation.)

There are some religious schools, but many of these are run by fundamentalist wackos who seem more interested in reducing their inclusive fitness in adopting Haitian children than quality education.  Not to mention many are hostile toward Darwinism, the greatest politically incorrect discovery of our age.

What schools offer a traditional WASP curriculum?  I mean a Euro-centric curriculum, High Culture, Advanced Mathematics, Science, Darwinism, Latin, German and French, et al?

The answer:  Homeschool.  Sadly, that may now be the best school in Kansas City.

And before you begin in the comments to call me the R-word, the only R-word I am is a realist.  The British economist Martin Sewell sums it up best: "So-called racism is a perfectly natural in-group bias which has been stigmatized by the politically correct West."  Time for us to think more like the Chinese.

I'd like to thank Tony's Kansas City for his mention of the Kansas City Gazette. To show my appreciation, I'll have to take him out for a night on the town, my treat, a la Chateau Heartiste style.

Review: Nutcracker, the Kansas City Ballet goes Ghetto

Review: Nutcracker, the Kansas City Ballet goes Ghetto 

By J. Randolph Swope

I was in Kansas City last December and saw the KC Ballet performance of the Nutcracker. I meant to write about it at the time but ended up wintering at my Switzerland residence, forgot about it, and then was reminded upon my recent return to the city of fountains and mayor with the rapper son.

Where to start....

First of all, the Kaufmann Center is ugly as sin. It's like watching a performance in a cheap-looking shopping mall crossed with a tacky airport. As someone else noted, "It's the Walmart of performing arts centers."

Second, this is hands down the worst performance of the Nutcracker I've ever seen. It was like watching some Cultural Marxist rendition of ballet, a perverted shadow of an original.

Following the protocols of political correctness, the producers / directors of this show cast a black girl to play the lead child, Clara.

Either these directors are historically illiterate, failing to realize that upper-class ethnic Russians under the Tsar were white, not black. Or the directors are so brainwashed by political correctness, they prefer to tell historical lies.

I suspect a little bit of both.

 Regardless, it was a painful performance to watch. At one point it looked as if "Clara" was breaking out into a "crip walk" more than doing traditional ballet. I had to leave the performance early.

I doubt I'll be going back.
