Hello my name is Darlene Robbins and I personally want to welcome you to "Mastering Today", this is a venue to share my journey to Freedom!! This entry was posted in Conscious Living and tagged circumstances, expectation, Fault, goodreads, Huffington Post, personal responsibilty, quotes, Steve Maraboli, surrender, Victim Mindset. No matter who your parents are, there are a few things that you can do to drastically increase the chance of having them say "YES" rather then "NO." Drastically!
Parents love to pretend they are cool and collected, but in reality, they are very predictable. So much so that I guarantee that if you read the tips below, you can improve your life in several ways! Nothing gets you a faster "No" from parents than giving them a feeling that they owe you or that you "deserve" things. So, when you ask for something, use an equal amount of gratitude and an equal amount of asking. The point is not to trick your parents into thinking you care; the point is that appreciation spreads good will, which will certainly come back to you. One thing your parents care about, whether they admit it or not, is how they appear to others. This request sounds appreciative, responsible and like you're a kid that knows the value of money.
The main thing you will need to prove to them is that you're mature enough to deserve that thing you want. If you show that you want to contribute to the family and don't resent your responsibilities, you will start to be seen in a whole different light -- a more grown-up light.
This will give Dad (or Mom) time to consider what you want, and also make you look more mature by showing that you are patient enough to wait a day for the reply. Setting the stage for any question you want to pop is a key to increasing the odds for "Yes"! Your persistence will most likely not be annoying or be regarded as questioning your parent's authority; It will actually be seen as an adult way of taking responsibility and going after what you want.

Andy Rooney Quote“I don't think the government is out to get me or help someone else get me but it wouldn't surprise me if they were out to sell me something or help someone else sell me something. You’ll constantly find yourself in situations where you have no experience, and you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing. See no matter how much experience I get, I continuously find myself in situations where I have no idea what I’m doing.
After many nights of my mom trying to teach herself and me these types of problems, I was still totally f*&ing baffled. So much so, that I had the highest grade point average of my entire Freshman class (over 400 students) at the end of my Freshman year. So I stayed after work sucking down information from the internet on how to create websites and program software until the building would shut it’s lights off. In the end I finagled my way into a new career as a software developer at that same company. There was the day when we realized the simple algorithm I was using to “score” people’s use of our tool wasn’t working. After weeks and weeks and weeks of battle… including a vacation weekend where my wife and I went camping.
Someone wrote to tell me they really wanted to pay for Draft (I recently turned on paid subscriptions), but they were underemployed and short on cash.
I notice that whenever I do question and answer sessions with young people (high school and college students), the same questions come up every time. White folks are STILL disproportionately likely to go to college despite formal Affirmative Action programs that attempt to recruit students of color. Which brings me to the factors that actually act as predictors of success for students as they look to attend college.
Thus, whether it’s because of the policy of legacy admissions, whereby students are accepted because their parents went to the college (which, at the University of Michigan holds almost as much sway as race, income level, and athletic scholarship combined), or because of the skills and know-how that come from having a parent who went to college, the end result is that People of Color are actually at a distinct disadvantage when they apply to college. Despite the for-profit test-making companies crying foul, multiple studies have found that tests like the SAT and ACT are, in fact, culturally biased in favor of White folks.
In essence, if the tests talks like all the people around you talk, you’re going to do better!
Now, does this mean that the writers of the SAT are a bunch of card-carrying members of the KKK?
The students who ask me about Affirmative Action almost always start with, “If two students are applying for college and all of their qualifications are equal . You see, though some gains have been made in the earning power of some People of Color, what matters more than income is wealth.
If you’re anything like me, those numbers are a bit shocking in their simple disparity. The point is that whenever we talk about how people of Color of low-income folks are receiving an unfair advantage with Affirmative Action programs, we having the wrong conversation.
Secondly, if we’re talking about something like the medical field, there is something called the State Board Exams. You assume that affirmative action means that a quota must be met and that unqualified people must be taken; that is a common but wrong assumption. In short, he aggregates data nationally in a way that masks the expenditures in specific areas of concentrated poverty within cities or within districts, and he lumps together all White folks, assuming, essentially, that no White folks live in poverty, and in doing so, he distorts their numbers, as some White schools spend more than poor schools of color in multitudes (take New Trier High School in the Chicago suburbs as compared to ANY low income school in the Chicago area). Radish, read the whole source, something you clearly did not do with ANY of the sources I presented, as they explain what happens when you DISAGGREGATE the data. What all three sources are doing is ignoring the ways that schools are locally funded, even within many districts. First, it doesn’t sound to me like the money being spent in that district was being used in ways that would advance educational achievement, AND it does not say where the new schools went within the city.
Once again, so long as you refuse to disaggregate the data, you either make yourself look like you don’t understand statistics OR you are using statistics to prove your racist point.


To use White vernacular simply means to use examples that are more accessible to White students than to students of Color. I am amazed with how some people cannot get over the fact that the world is not an even playing field and this is something that is trying to help even out a system that has been placing minorities lower on the scale the farther that time progresses. Jamie- you don’t get paid enough to respond to each of these bigoted replies with as much class and kindness as you have. I think that the obstacles you have mentioned are indisputable: everything from education to not having enough resources as white men have had (like myself). 2) It’s been shown to aversely affect people of color to be put in situations that they are not actually qualified for. I can see your point that it seems counter-intuitive to try to combat racial inequalities by using discriminatory methods which favor certain races and classes.
Because you’re right, in a better world where black (or any racial) neighborhoods are not disproportionately poor, no one would need affirmative action policies. The sooner affirmative action takes effect, the sooner we can be rid of it, and the sooner our currently poor communities will be wealthy enough to support families with better standards of education. The other thing that you misunderstand about affirmative action is that you seem to imply that it is simply a race-based process. While you may have come from a poor, White district, you also ignore all of the other ways that the color of your skin offers you advantages in your application to jobs and schools. Additionally, your class status was very likely taken into account in any affirmative action admissions policies in your application process, and thus, even as you argue against Affirmative Action, you were likely the beneficiary in overt and covert ways. I agree with you that white women have been helped by affirmative action in the workplace, but this article doesn’t address undergraduate admissions at all.
Also, you say that individual race, class, gender, ability, etc., are taken into account during admissions, but you then say that college admissions are based on who is disproportionately wealthy. To say that because White women are now dominating institutions of higher education in terms of admissions and graduation, they are now being disadvantaged in admissions is like saying that in the 1960s, White men were at a disadvantage in job applications for advanced positions because they represented 95% of the workforce in that area. A sty (sometimes spelled stye) is a tender, painful red bump located at the base of an eyelash or inside the eyelid. Your parents will allow you to do more, trust you more and be more willing to see life from your perspective.
Sure, they are responsible for your well-being and all that, but this is not an exercise in fairness. Two things you can always offer are doing specific chores and getting better grades in specific topics. Saying, "I'll get better grades," is one thing, but it's much better to say, "I'll get better grades in History." You also actually have to mean it and do your part.
Adults often feel judged about their parenting skills, and any way you can help them to feel confident as parents is a good thing. Offer to take on small responsibilities and always do what you said you would do and a tiny bit more. Allen Mendler, a currently popular author in the area of behavior management, conducted a survey of kids, asking them what would be the #1 rule they would apply to their teachers.  What do you think the most common answer was? How would you operationalize the rather vague rules in 2a?  What specific examples might you give?  What role plays might you devise to help students better understand the concepts? Devise possible rules for use in your classroom (or reconsider the ones you already have in place). Mutner's rulesRestate each of her rules in a positive manner, identifying the behaviors that she probably wants to see displayed. He was most notable for his weekly broadcast A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney, a part of the CBS News program 60 Minutes from 1978 to 2011. I have countless personal tales of being neck deep in some type of problem or subject, and being completely baffled how I’m going to figure it out. It came to the point where I approached my Algebra teacher and fessed up that I’d only be a bit more lost if he was teaching the class in Italian, and maybe I should change classes.
Serpe had enough experience to have seen enough folks just as lost as I was eventually figure this stuff out. I just sat with a calculator and a notebook on our campsite looking to make all these algorithms and choices make some kind of sense.
Figured out the bottlenecks and performance problems to keep the few servers we had from melting down.
I’ve had over 6 years of experience helping to start and run my own profitable software business. Not only are White people not being discriminated against actively, White people are still benefitting regularly from a system that was built from its inception by White people for White people. This reminds me of a lot of horribly (and unintentionally) racist beliefs I used to have about affirmative action.
Should we really send a student to a university that they are clearly underprepared for and that all their peers are significantly more advanced than them?
We really must become a society that does not focus on race, but on achievement (a meritocracy). I want a just society where everybody has opportunities to the life they want and this can be achieved with the same amount of effort as anyone else in society.
Society is not going to go for a program that favors one group even if that group has been discriminated, enslaved, etc. There is a temptation to see this as tilting the pool table, giving an unfair advantage to people on account of their race. I think that as time goes on, and as policies become more effective at lessening economic disparities between certain neighborhoods and communities, we should gradually phase out affirmative action, or replace it with other measures. He worked really hard to not have us be judged by the color of our skin, and I think we should discard this notion of race-based decisions (whether it be used for good or for bad) for once and for all.
The fact that most wealth is held by White families doesn’t mean that most White families are rich. My high school, at the time I graduated, spent the second-least amount of money per student in the entire state of Virginia. A sty results from an acute infection of the oil glands of the eyelid that occurs after these glands have become clogged. Your parents care about one thing (having to do with you) almost more than anything: Your growing up into a responsible, happy adult.
RESPONSIBILITY: Do my actions meet the expectation to take care of myself and be a dependable member of the group?


I think a lot of dumb people do it because they can't think of what they want to say and they're frustrated. I’ve never had experience creating a dynamic website that could handle millions of people every single day (let alone using Ruby on Rails to do this).
The truly qualified white doctor who worked their arse off to get an A average, or the minority doctor who did poorly with a C- grade? We’ve put all that race based decisions behind us and we are finally looking at the individual for their individual merits.
However, perhaps it might be useful to step back a bit and see affirmative action as a temporary measure designed to achieve a goal – to put us closer to the situation of non-discrimination.
And trying to help poor neighborhoods and poor families of color takes multiple measures, each of which contribute to each others effectiveness. At the moment affirmative action is based on race, and this criteria for identifying the socially disadvantaged (which is already fairly rudimentary, though it has its utility) will gradually become less relevant. In your article, as in many other pro-affirmative-action arguments, you’ve over-generalized to the point of profiling the majority of White students as wealthy and privileged and all Black students as being poor and underprivileged. Any way you can show them that you are moving in the right direction will help your case endlessly. COURAGE: Am I resisting peer pressure or directions that might hurt others?  Am I doing the right thing? Then went onto be the technical co-founder of my own business, Inkling, in the second class of Y Combinator.
These were just a few stories of dozens where I couldn’t possibly fathom how we at the company were going to figure out how to get through our next challenge.
Instead of guiding our efforts towards convincing society that we should use race based decisions (i.e. 1) Giving affirmative action, preferential treatment, is a band-aid solution that does not address the actual problems that certain groups have. I never look at a person with blond hair (I have brown) and think they are different or discriminate. But why not achieve this end faster by also giving a marginal advantage to children from poorer backgrounds, to combat the host of other disadvantages inherent in being born to poorer parents? And so the window where affirmative action will be at its most effective will slowly close over time. If our affirmative action is solely based on need and not on race, then indirectly we are helping all the colored people who are disproportionately poor.
The college admissions process is an evaluation specific to individual people, and individual students shouldn’t have to suffer because of over-broad generalizations. Believe me -- proud parents' hearts and wallets are much more likely to be open to your requests.
COURTESY: Do my actions help to make this place a positive learning climate where people feel welcome and accepted?  Do my actions show consideration for myself and others? So I basically had to collect things people talked about in meetings that represented “requirements” and stick them into Word documents. Another white doctor who is very qualified to work at this hospital is not hired due to the fact that they have a specific quota of minorities that they need to hire! Wait, how is us focusing on race and using that as preferential treatment fixing the problem?
I would like to see even the most right wing republican dispute the idea that poor schools should be as good as rich schools.
I assume that a careful study of family wealth and educational opportunities will reveal how and when this racial gap gradually closes, and we can adjust our policies to reflect that. I asked them how, and they explained that there was a summer program through the Office of African-American Affairs that allowed Black students to practice the experiments prior to the start of the school year. The eye may feel irritated or "scratchy." Later symptoms can include swelling, discomfort during blinking, watering of the eye, and light sensitivity. Let’s work hard to make the school in the black neighborhood as good as the school in the white neighborhood. We need to offer opportunities, and we need to make the opportunities accessible for everyone. In other words, if the schools still suck in poor neighborhoods whomever lives there is still not going to go to college.
Sure, in some way being a poor black person in the US is harder than being a poor white person in the US, but either way everyone that is poor suffers. A common sign of a sty is a small, yellowish spot at the center of the bump that develops as pus expands in the area. He told me it was fine to move to a lower level math class, if that’s what I really wanted, but he warned. This type of affirmative action is good for everyone; the same cannot be said for race-based affirmative action. I can’t now, because the side of affirmative action is accentuating it and excarcerbating it. A promotion that is not based on merit seems to defy the founding principles of our meritocracy (not to sound like a crazy libertarian which I am not). Application of a warm compress or washcloth to the affected area for 10 minutes, four to six times a day, can speed rupture of the sty and aid in the relief of symptoms. Who can argue against the idea of making a school in poor areas as good as schools in rich areas? It’s non-sensical to, as a society, condemn racism as a means to success in life, and then have our main solution to fix the race inequality be one that is exactly race based? I just can’t seem to reconcile the idea that affirmative action is merely a short term solution that has no long-lasting effects. Why do we think this is a good idea when this is what we are trying to get away from from the get go? If a sty persists for several days, a doctor may lance (drain) the infection under local anesthesia.
