It is the 21st Century, right? Americans have – for better or worst- elected a black President twice in the last 10 years? We’re long past first black federal judges, Secretaries of State, Academy Award and Pulitzer Prize winners. Common sense would indicate that a black President elected by a white voting majority and the same population that voted in an opposite party Congressional majority might actually be a sign of the equality that the Left is always whining about. Of course, if the last eight years taught us anything, it’s that according to our majority elected black President, Americans are a bunch of racist, evil, bigots who not only don’t know how good we’ve got it, but actively oppose those poor, hated minorities.
Case in point, according to KSLA News a Glen Allen Virginia high school recently forced their kids to watch a “White Guilt” video tastefully entitled, “Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race”, because that’s what Black History Month and Dr. King’s legacy is all about.
The video depicts four athletes of different ethnicities running a race, but the two non-white runners get screwed over by ridiculous obstacles the white runners don’t encounter. The video concludes by asserting that affirmative action helps minorities overcome the shark pools and police threats in the race that caused them to lose. Because it’s affirmative action and not dedication and refusing to accept victimization that gave Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson everything they’ve earned.
Nothing racist about that assertion.
When a parent wrote a letter to the administration, pointing out what should have been obvious, if common sense were actually taught in school anymore, parents on both sides took to social media. “Y’all are privileged. Get the — blank — over it,” tweeted one parent, pretty much dropping the mic on the subject with that logic. Radio personality, Craig Johnson, however, lit into the school and it’s racial condescension “Dr. King gave his life so that America would be a place where we are judged by the content of our character not the color of our skin. Now we have poverty pimps being led by our current president Barack Obama who all they talk about is the color of skin.”
The school attempted to address the uproar by releasing a statement that was either the lamest apology in the history of lame apologies (still awaiting Johnny Manziel’s for comparison) or a double down on the administration’s patronizing.
“The students participated in a presentation that involved American history and racial discourse. A segment of the video was one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged. As always, we are welcoming of feedback from students and their families, and we address concerns directly as they come forward.”
In other words, we’d rather ask for forgiveness than permission because that way we’ve already force-fed our racial divineness promotion to the community. And based on the controversy, I’d say it worked.
