Black teacher calls pro-Trump high school students ‘racist’

There is hope for America’s young.

Despite the partisan political indoctrination students are subjected to in our public schools, students in one high school pushed back by posting in their classroom a Trump pic with the words “Obama, you’re fired”; Trump’s agenda; an Electoral College map of the 2016 presidential election; and a paper “wall” in support of President Trump’s proposed US-Mexico border wall.

All of that, of course, is called “racist” by the Math teacher who made the video.

I scoured the comments on the video’s YouTube page, as well as blogs that posted the video, but no one knows which school it is or the name of the teacher.

A YouTube viewer Abc Abc describes the political indoctrination he experienced in school:

“I just graduated high school and the head of the English department is a radical feminist, and she teaches 6 different English classes, sophomores and seniors… and in AP Literature we have a feminism unit, a white privilege unit, and other crap, and she told her students to take BuzzFeed ‘how privileged are you’ test. We did a unit about gender roles and how they are bad and we need to break free of them…. In history class this past year, I had one semester with one teacher, and second semester with another. In first semester, we watched a pro Hillary documentary the day of the election (some students were 18 and could vote and that swayed their vote to Hillary). And in the same class we watched a pro-ILLEGAL immigration documentary. Yes, ILLEGAL immigration. It was all about how illegals are nice and changing some guy’s mind about it in the movie. In second semester with a different teacher, we watched an anti-gun documentary, a biased police brutality documentary that disrespected police officers a lot (police brutality is awful and never acceptable of course but they portrayed it so wrong and leftist), we watched youtube videos against the trump travel ban. And videos against the electoral college. It made all the students think Trump didn’t deserve to win even though he campaigned in a way catered to the electoral college. it’s not unfair, he played by the rule and won all the important swing states. The teacher also said that the United States taking in ‘only 50,000 refugees a year isn’t that many,’ and made the class feel like we should take in more. In government class we were discussing current events and remember that nonsense thing with Mike Pence and his AOL server? It wasn’t comparable at all to what Hillary did and Pence literally didn’t do anything wrong or illegal. He didn’t smash blackberries for fucks sake. It’s not comparable to Hillary at all. And the teacher said to the class, ‘So guys isn’t this a bit hypocritical? Is this a big deal?’ And the zombified class was like, ‘yeahhh…’ and I said out loud, ‘No, it’s not.’ And the teacher shushed me and waved her hand at me to dismiss my comment. When I was a junior (2015-2016), I had a really nice history teacher but when we got to the part in US history about Roe V Wade, she literally told us what opinion to have about abortion. Pro choice obviously. And she also told us that Trump is racist. And a bigot and whatever. I don’t mind political opinions from teachers personally but I think they have a responsibility not to say that to the class. My art teacher is my friend but … he wants socialism. ‘Democratic socialism,’ he says. I only got interested in politics once Trump started running, so I wasn’t even paying attention to bias in classrooms before that… but I’m sure there was so much liberal crap that me and other kids just absorbed without even noticing.”

SJW Colin Kaepernick travels ‘home’ to Ghana to find ‘personal independence’

Colin Kaepernick: “Fully committed”

Hey Colin, the NFL isn’t breaking down doors to hire your sorry butt. Might as well stay “home.”

From ABC News: On Independence Day in the United States, free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a video on social media of his trip to Ghana, where he traveled to find his “personal independence.”

He posted the video on Twitter with a message asking, “How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs?”

He posted a longer message on Instagram with the video, explaining why he was interested in traveling to Ghana. In order to find his personal independence, he “had to find out where my ancestors came from,” and tracing his ancestral roots led him to Ghana.

Kaepernick has used his social media platforms to support social causes but has remained silent on his football career. Many NFL players have said they believe Kaepernick is being “blackballed” by NFL teams because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem last season.

Kaepernick, 29, spent the first six seasons on his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, starting 58 regular-season games and helping the team reach Super Bowl XLVII. He opted out of the final year of his contract in March.

Niners general manager John Lynch said last week in a radio interview that he spoke with Kaepernick and that the quarterback wants to play in the NFL this season. He said he urged Kaepernick to express publicly in an interview that he is still committed to his football career.

He is fully committed to wanting to be in this league. … I won’t communicate too much of what we’ve talked about, but I will communicate that I gave that opinion to Colin myself: ‘I think you are having a little bit of an image crisis in terms of not so much what you did last year, but people are wondering, is this most important to you, at a position where the guys that succeed at that position are the guys that live it, breathe it, the CEOs that play that position.’ And I think there is a perception that football’s not on the top of his list,” Lynch told KNBR Radio in San Francisco.

“And so, my communication with Colin was, ‘Your best effort, I think the way you could best help yourself is to not have someone talk for you, not have statements, but go sit down and do an interview, and let people know exactly where you stand.’ Because he makes a compelling case as to how bad he wants to be in the league when you talk to him.

“And so, I’ll leave it at that, but we did have those discussions and I think that would help him.”

While in Africa, Kaepernick also has traveled to Egypt. Current 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin accompanied Kaepernick there, posting an Instagram picture of himself with the quarterback.

It is unclear whether Goodwin also went to Ghana with Kaepernick.

Are You Guilty Of Whiteness?

If you are White, Asian, Latino, or Not-Black-Enough (like Ben Carson), this professor says you are guilty.

What consequences will society suffer from colleges indoctrinating students into race hatred? This is America, but it may soon look like South Africa, where “whites” are hunted down for perceived offenses.

THE COLLEGE FIX: RACIAL ISSUES WHITE PRIVILEGE
Professor teaches students about ‘the problem that is whiteness’
NATHAN RUBBELKE – JULY 5, 2017

Editor’s Note: This is the fifth in a series of articles reporting on ‘Where Do We Go From Here: Creating An Intersectional Vision for Radical Social Change,’ a diversity conference held June 13-16 at Fairfield University

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Serious explorations into race should focus on the problem of whiteness and be grounded in the claim that it’s a hegemonic “power apparatus,” a Fairfield University professor suggested at a recent conference aimed at pushing “radical social change” in higher education.

“So more and more, the courses that I teach on race have become courses in which I expect my students to engage in the hegemonic power of whiteness,” said Sealey, who’s taught courses such as “Black Lives Matter” and “Critical Race Theory…”

George Yancy

…Sealey’s comments were based in the book “Black Bodies, White Gazes: The Continuing Significance of Race” by Emory University philosopher George Yancy.

Discussing Yancy’s work, the professor said she’s moved by his premise that “any inquiry into the experience of blackness must include some genealogy or some history of the white gaze.” Taking the thesis seriously, Sealey said, means “to acknowledge that any critical investigation of race should devote some time to the problem that is whiteness.”

Some take-aways from this article:

  • Whiteness means a specific power apparatus that exists at the expense of the disempowerment of black people.
  • To be white in the U.S. is to be a perpetuator of the power apparatus unless one actively and consistently resists.
  • It is possible, perhaps necessary, to acknowledge one’s personal implications in the white power apparatus.

Muslim UK student union president sparks controversy by saying she would like to oppress white people

Racist student union leader ZamZam

Ain’t multiculturalism grand?

From Daily Mail: Muslim student union leader has claimed she would like to ‘oppress white people’ and has suggested there would be an Islamic takeover if more people read the Koran.

Zamzam Ibrahim, who was elected President of Salford University‘s Student Union in March, also suggested friendship between men and women is un-Islamic and is opposed to the government’s anti-radicalisation strategy.

The Swedish-Somali student officer also described the government’s Prevent strategy as ‘disastrous’ and ‘racist’.

In one message she responded to a question on AskFM on what book everyone should read. She said: ‘The Quaraan. We would have an Islamic takeover!’

In another message on the topic of the possibility of friendship between a man and a woman, she replied: ‘I’ve had this debate with many friends! Maybe in some cases but Islamically it’s incorrect for girls to be friends with a guy anyway! So I’m gonna say NO not the kind of friendship they can have with the same gender there is always boundaries.’

In one tweet from May 9, 2012 under the hashtag #ifIwasPresident, she wrote: ‘I’d oppress white people just to give them a taste of what they put us through!’ 

Ms. Ibrahim was also recently elected to the National Union of Students (NUS) Block of 15 committee. She has also completed a BSc in Business and Financial Management.

During her campaign for election with the NUS, Ms Ibrahim, who is a Muslim, claimed: ‘Since Brexit referendum result, there has been a rise in hate crime by 41 per cent. NUS needs to continue the great work on combating racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, homophobic and ableist hate crime.

‘If elected, I will continue to work with NUS Officers and ARAF campaigns to develop networks to support students and activists affected by Hate Crime, to fight against the disastrous racist PREVENT strategy and support international students and migrant communities.’

The student union at the college – where Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi attended – is opposed to the government’s PREVENT strategy.

According to The Spectator, Ms. Ibrahim has deleted a large number of messages form her social media accounts.

According to the Student’s Union: ‘The government’s Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a statutory requirement on public bodies – including universities – to “prevent people being drawn into terrorism”.

‘The Prevent agenda, as part of the Government’s “anti-extremism” work has been used to create an expansive surveillance architecture to spy on the public and to police dissent, systematically targeting Black people and Muslims.’

The students claimed the government’s prevent strategy was ‘demonising Muslim students on campus’.

One college source told MailOnline: ‘Given that as Student Union President involved working with students of all walks of life, it’s a bit inappropriate for someone like her to hold the role of representing students.’

MailOnline has approached the National Union of Students and Salford Unversity’s Students Union to seek a comment from Ms. Ibrahim.

Ms. Ibrahim’s comments follow the controversy surrounding former NUS president Malia Bouattia, who failed to get re-elected earlier this year.

Ms. Bouattia became subject of a Commons home affairs committee meeting after she described Birmingham University as a ‘Zionist outpost’.   

In scathing findings, the committee said that she did not appear to take the issue of campus anti-Semitism ‘sufficiently seriously’ and showed a ‘worrying disregard’ for her duty to represent all students and promote balanced and respectful debate.

Ms. Bouattia’s statement in a co-authored 2011 blog that Birmingham ‘has the largest Jsoc (Jewish Society) in the country whose leadership is dominated by Zionist activists’ was condemned in the MPs’ report as ‘unacceptable, and even more so from a public figure such as the president of the NUS’.

Dear Crazy White Guys – Please Stop Reinforcing Our Racial Stereotypes!

There are just too many things that fit predictable patterns.

For instance, we have this video from an incident in Baltimore 2 weeks ago:

TMZ: BALTIMORE SHOOTOUT ROBBERY SUSPECT FIRES AT COPS … In Crazy Video

An armed robbery suspect got off a bus and started shooting at cops in broad daylight — striking one of them — before being shot and killed himself…

http://www.tmz.com/2017/06/07/baltimore-robbery-suspect-deadly-shootout-with-cops/


I’m a white guy. I know a lot of white guys.

Except for wartime, none of us have been in any wild shootouts. But here comes this circus clown with a two handed shooting style, perfect for continuing the narrative of the “white nut with guns.”

Dear Mr. Un-named dead white shooter,

Thanks a pile.

On cue: Susan Rice suggests race, gender bias linked to ‘unmasking’ backlash

Of course.

From Fox News: Susan Rice, the Obama national security adviser under fire over her alleged involvement in the “unmasking” of Trump associates during the 2016 presidential election, suggested in a fresh interview that race and gender might be playing a role in the scrutiny she’s faced.

In an interview with journalist Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine, Rice reportedly questioned the criticism she’s faced dating back to the Benghazi controversy. “Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” she asked.

Tomasky noted in the piece that Carney “isn’t an African-American woman, of course” and apparently asked Rice whether that is the key factor. Rice, in response, left the door open:

“I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.” 

But Rice mentioned other prominent female figures – like Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice – who faced “ad hominem” attacks, suggesting a correlation.

Asked about the comments, a Republican Capitol Hill source pushed back. “This is screaming out for attention… She’s saying I don’t know why they all started picking on me to begin with.”

As to the suggestion of race and gender being a factor, the source countered, then “why would there be a subpoena for a white male?”

That was a reference to the fact that Rice is not the only focus of the congressional probe into unmasking. Investigators have issued subpoenas to three different agencies: NSA, CIA and FBI.

Those subpoenas have asked for unmasking information related to three individuals: former CIA Director John Brennan, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, and Rice.

She’s not the only focus of congressional frustration, either. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., had a tense exchange with a top intelligence community lawyer at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday where he complained he still doesn’t have an answer on whether his communications have been monitored.

“Am I ever gonna get [the response] in my lifetime?” he asked.

Rice told Judy Woodruff on PBS on March 22 that she “knew nothing” about the unmasking of Trump associates. But weeks later on MSNBC, she admitted she sometimes sought out the identities of Trump associates who communicated with foreigners, a request known as “unmasking” in the intelligence community. But “I leaked nothing to nobody,” Rice told MSNBC.

Rice initially became a target of Republican criticism back in 2012 for giving misleading information about the origin of the Benghazi terror attack. On Sept. 16, 2012, just days after the attack, Rice appeared on all five Sunday political talk shows to claim the Benghazi attack spun out of a protest over an anti-Muslim video produced in California.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus reportedly told lawmakers later that the intelligence community considered the attack an act of terrorism at the time. Four Americans were killed in Benghazi, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
