No Country For Bad Gringos, Part II

A couple of days ago, I posted about the obtuseness inherent in a white American student being sent home for wearing an American flag in an American school during Cinco de Mayo in NorCal.

I also noted that it was the pin-headed government agents that staff the public school who were at the center of it all.

Well, I have two more incidents for you. First, another incident from the PRK (Feral, at least they're down south in LA...Atlas, for you) (HT: VD):

I wonder if the schoolteacher depicted in this video realizes the irony in his call for race-based revolution against imperialism and capitalism, for without imperialism, he and his racial kin would still be hacking each other to pieces with stone tools (doesn't he speak the language of the conqueror, anyway?), and without capitalism, he wouldn't have that chic leather jacket or shoes or jeans or pimped-out low rider he drives to the public indoctrination center (okay I just made up that last part--I have no idea what the fellow drives).

Continuing on the Marxist / racialist indoctrination cavalcade, I give you this story about government agents using class warfare as justification for discriminating against white kids:

An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students. Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.

While there’s no clear agreement between the two sides about exactly what happened, most of the controversy centers on a field trip taken last week by the Lunch Bunch for African American boys and girls to hear a black rocket engineer talk. District spokeswoman Liz Margolis said after the trip was over, those who went returned to their fifth-grade class and were greeted by boos by those who didn’t go on the trip. Margolis said Madison, who is black, heard the boos, and went to talk to the class. She said he and the class had a “discussion” about race issues.

Yeah, I bet they had a discussion about race issues. Anyone want to take bets on what a school administrator, who just led a black-students-only field trip to see a black engineer, had to say to those white students who felt discriminated against?

Viva La Raza, indeed. Racialist indoctrination funded by your tax dollars folks.

I bet the "discussion" closely resembled this.

So, if they'd taken white kids on the trip, how would that have prevented the black kids from deriving whatever benefit they gained from being in the presence of the black scientist?

Just try and take the white kids to a "whites only" lunch. I dare you even to suggest it...

They let anyone be a teacher. For someone who spews such inanity to be called an educator speaks to how far we have fallen.

I heard about the black-only field trip when Spunky Homeschool posted about it a few days ago. I am appalled now as I was when I first read about it.

Good link, Tarl. I wasn't aware of such a thing.

See? You learn something new every day by blogging.

"So, if they'd taken white kids on the trip, how would that have prevented the black kids from deriving whatever benefit they gained from being in the presence of the black scientist?"

Perhaps it is an extension of stereotype threat? That the presence of (stereotypical) smarty-pants whites who 'act white' (naturally) would impede their learning?


The part that ticks me off--beyond the obvious racialism inherent in such a field trip--is the implicit life lessons that come with it: That racial preferences enforced by the state are a good thing, and that black students can only learn from black teachers and role models.

Funny, if such a message were propagated by whites, it would be shouted down from the rooftops. But if a black person does it, it is somehow okay.

Arizona banned ethnic studies classes a few days ago. More states should do the same. It would prevent stuff like this.

The sad part is, this will all end very badly. White Christian culture will be standing on the smoldering remains of what we build with our forefathers foundation and ask ourselves why nothing was done earlier...why the lead up to all the destruction wasn't easily avoided when we had the chance.

Unfortunately, we will all be in the same boat. Except we can genuinely point and say "told you so." But somehow, that doesn't make me feel better.
