Ever since President Trump got elected, liberals have renewed their cries of racism and bigotry all throughout the country. Things that nobody paid attention to during Obama’s term, such as Robert E. Lee statues, are now being attacked as symbols of oppression.
Teachers have gone full steam ahead on this movement, as well—particularly the more liberal leaning ones. After news has spread over what this California teacher did to teach her students a “lesson,” about slavery, however, many parents are wondering if this has gone too far.
Liberalism operates by making you so emotional that you can’t think clearly; it fills your mind with pity and sadness, until you just feel so bad that you have to vote for whatever refugee-promoting, anti-American politician is running on a “help the downtrodden” type campaign.
It should come as no surprise then, that a far left teacher in California has been using a new “exercise,” in order to make her students feel the most intense form of white guilt possible.
In a sick and twisted simulation of slavery, she’s tying their wrists together, stacking them next to one another in a pitch black room, and playing a clip of “Roots,” to simulate passing over on a slave boat.
Huffington Post, the far left social justice warrior capital of the internet, reports:
What is the right way to teach kids about the American slave trade? And when should a parent have a say?
For one mother of three, this question is at the center of an ongoing conflict she says she is having with administrators at Whitney High School in Cerritos, California. Shardé Carrington, 31, posted a Facebook message Monday to open up a dialogue about a disturbing history lesson she says was being taught to her son’s eighth-grade class.
According to Carrington, a teacher sent an email on Sept. 5 with the subject heading “Unique Learning Experience” to inform parents of an upcoming exercise that would supposedly expose students to the horrors of slavery. The lesson would involve the teachers acting as “slave ship captains” and students as slaves.
“Specifically, when class starts,” the email reads, “we will sternly tell them to line up outside the classroom, use masking tape to ‘tie’ their wrists together, make them lay on the ground inside the room (which will be dark) shoulder to shoulder with each other (boys and girls are in separate rows), and then while they lay there, have them watch a clip from ‘Roots.’”
Of course, parents have reacted with complete shock over the ridiculous form of “teaching.” Many have asked what the purpose of such nonsense is, as it’s been literally hundreds of years since anyone was even subject to such misery.
Should we also put students on “the rack,” to teach them about the medieval inquisition? Should we pit students in brutal fights against one another, to teach them about the Roman gladiators? Or maybe we should starve them to death, in order to teach them about the evils of communism?
Thankfully, one African American parent spoke out. “As the mother of a black child, I feared that my son’s participation would lead him to experience trauma, perhaps at the cellular level, and have a visceral reaction of anger and fear during the exercise itself,” she said.
After some investigation, she found out that the department had been employing the “slavery method,” for nearly 10 years. The school added that the exercise came from a “nationally recognized supplier of curriculum,” and that it was meant to immerse the largely “non-black student population,” into the world of slavery.
Conservatives have pointed out that this is an obvious form of white guilt being forced onto students who did nothing to promote slavery. The left is intent on blaming modern day whites for the sins of the past, which is a very dangerous ideology, as many have pointed out.
The second that we begin blaming people for things which they did not do, we open up the doors to identity politics. Over the past decade, we’ve seen this country grow more and more divided from the Marxist arguing points, and if we don’t band together and save this country soon, it’s only a matter of time before our country’s demise.
If you think that this teacher should be fired immediately, please give this article a share. Thank you and God bless!
