The Coke cage

Via Maggie's Farm and Vanderleun at American Digest.
This is a remarkably forthright and dismaying report from a teacher in an 80% black school: Before-It’s-Deleted Of The Day.
... the chain-link fence that many majority-black schools use to protect vending machines. The cage surrounds the machine and even covers its top. Delivery employees have to unlock a gate on the front of the cage to service the machines. Companies would prefer not to build cages around vending machines. They are expensive, ugly, and a bother, but black students smashed the machines so many times it was cheaper to build a cage than repair the damage.

Read the whole thing. It's scary because part of our culture is defective.  It also explains the Rasmussen Report on racism cited by James Taranto.
