100% failure rate: Well done!

As regular readers will know, the term ‘black academic achievement’ is almost an oxymoron. The evidence is there in abundance. However, a spectacular example of how bad it can get is provided in the South Africa Sucks blog.


The post refers to one particular academic powerhouse in SA where every single student failed their grade 12 (i.e. Leaving/Matric level) exams! Media reports state that ‘all 15 matriculant pupils fail (sic), and all of the school’s 200-plus pupils from the other grades also fail (sic).’ Well done lads, well done.
Some of these scholars are featured on the above image.

We might indeed laugh, but ultimately the laugh is on us. We have allowed hundreds of thousands of Africans in here and we can expect a similar contribution from them as we migrate to the long-promised 'knowledge economy’.

God help us all as the Celtic Tiger goes down for the third time.

Valid up to a point, but you 'failed' to mention a range of mitigating factors also referred to in the report.

Not a million miles different from some black schools in the US.

@anony 22.18. Mitigating - mmmh, yes. The average Black African has an IQ of around 67....thats mitigating. And they breed. My God, do they breed.
I really wish I could be alive in a 100 years to see the destruction they will bring to Europe.

What I meant by mitigation, and I'm sure you realize this, is that the kids had to travel huge distances to get to the school, lacked books etc.

New Irish: Almost 250 applicants take last big step on the road to citizenship

ALMOST 250 people from four continents gathered in Dublin yesterday to declare fidelity and loyalty to the State, the last big step on the road to Irish citizenship.

Participants came from a wide range of nationalities, from Romanian to Filipino, Chinese to Bangladeshi. Within weeks, once fees are paid and outstanding documents lodged, all will become Irish citizens.

The newest of “new Irish” are a diverse mix of skin colours and native tongues, to judge from the crowds who gathered in a Dublin hotel to complete the final paperwork before going on to swear an oath in the District Court. So far this year, people from 129 different nationalities have received certificates of naturalisation.

For most, this upbeat occasion marked the end of years of bureaucracy and waiting, but the sense of gratitude was palpable. Minister of State for Integration Conor Lenihan was equally delighted as he pressed the flesh with the freshest batch of potential new voters.

“This is a big step and is a great indicator of the participant’s commitment to the country we all live in. Becoming a fully-fledged citizen is a key indicator of integration and it shows a commitment to further

integrate.”

Richard Butler’s journey to Ireland started 11 years ago, on the back of a truck in Zimbabwe, where he met fellow hitcher Claire O’Regan. Romance blossomed, the South African landscape architect uprooted to Dublin and the couple married and now live in East Wall.

Richard had to wait five years before he could apply for naturalisation, and another two years while his application was processed. “Paperwork, lots of paperwork,” he says, when asked to describe what was involved.

As a South African, he is entitled to hold dual citizenship but has good practical reasons for adding an Irish passport to his original one.

“It makes it easier for me to travel. And now I can vote; I feel I know enough about this country and its politics to do so.”

Citizenship also offers the promise of greater job security. Although Butler held a five-year work permit, such documents still tie a person to the employer. “Basically, this means no more long queues on cold nights to get your visa renewed.”

What does it mean to be Irish? “Apart from the slagging from friends, I don’t know. I’m looking forward to finding out.”

Twenty-year-old business student Xiaoyu Sun, originally from Beijing, says getting Irish citizenship will be “really useful. I’ll be able to vote, for example.” His mother has already gained citizenship and he believes it will simplify matters greatly.

Gary, a hospital nurse from the Philippines, is already beginning to worry about the economic situation. “I’d like to stay but my family needs a security blanket and it might be necessary to go somewhere else.” His wife, a dentist, isn’t able to practise in Ireland and could be refused citizenship because she is not working, he says. Like Butler, Gary cannot think of a bad thing about Ireland; the best thing is “the people, especially at work”.

According to Gerry O’Donnell of the Department of Justice, yesterday’s ceremony, and a similar one attended by 240 applicants last week, were designed to reduce the backlog that had built up. Those naturalised so far this year include 301 Nigerians, 192 Pakistanis, 149 Indians and 148 Russians.

Ironically, as the Minister admits, getting citizenship means some people are more likely to leave. “It does pose a dilemma. Citizenship means some will go to other countries with bigger labour markets or greater concentrations of people from their own home country.”

This trend has been particularly noticeable with refugees, he says, but only 6 per cent of those awarded certificates of naturalisation so far come via the asylum-seeker route.

Next year, Lenihan intends to introduce English language and other tests for aspirant citizens and even some applicants for work permits. “We’re also looking at more formal and celebratory occasions to be held all over the country.”

thanks for that, Jack. It's some good news that there are entry requirements etc.
pity that poor f*cker from Zim who has to live in the East Wall though...

There is some good news viking, thats correct. But dont forget that Ireland is already swarming with blacks and they breed at a rate way in excess of whites. So in many ways the damage has been done.
