Maybe it’s just the time of year but I keep running across these really ludicrous liberal stories that make me want to punch someone because they are so absurdly stupid. Honestly, who in their right mind thinks this way?
In an absurd attempt to combat perceived discrimination, a Portland, Oregon school has taken complete leave of it’s senses and claimed that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are now considered a sign of racism!
Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School, “picks up on the subtle language of racism” on a daily basis. “Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year. What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita. What is racist about a child’s lunch, one might ask? Peanut butter and jelly, of course! You racists probably even use black currant jelly sometimes. On white bread.”
That school started this past school year with intensive teacher sensitivity training to help educators learn to identify their “white privilege”. No, sorry, that’s just a liberal code word for “we want to be racist against whites”. Ms. Gutierrez said, in a memo to educators, “Our focus school and our Superintendent’s mandate that we improve education for students of color, particularly Black and Brown boys, will provide us with many opportunities to use the protocols of Courageous Conversations in data teams, team meetings, staff meetings, and conversations amongst one another.” Well I hate to tell you, but if you really are noticing educational problems among “Black and Brown boys”, it’s not because some kid is eating a PB&J on the playground, it’s somthing cultural, especially if you’re only seeing the problem among the boys and not the girls. That’s not public school education, that’s a fucked up culture that these people embrace. You’re not going to fix it by teaching these screwed up kids that the culture that their parents embrace is a good thing, any more than you’re likely to improve the self-esteem of Muslim girls that are covered head to toe in a burka that their religion is a positive thing. This is one of the things most ridiculously wrong with the liberal mindset, the “multiculural” nonsense, where everything is equal, even if it demonstrably isn’t. There’s no reason to pretend that the utterly failed black and Hispanic sub-cultures are just as valuable as every other, just so you don’t make people feel bad. Worse yet, the idea that you ought to drag demonstrably successful sub-cultures down to the level of the failed ones and teach people who belong to these sub-cultures that they ought to feel bad about it, just so the people at lower levels feel a little better is absurdly backwards. We need to bring “Black and Brown boys” up to the level of whites. We do not need to punish whites because “Black and Brown” sub-cultures have been such an utter social failure. Reality is reality, truth is truth, people need to stop worrying about hurting people’s feelings and start working to fix the actual problems.
But liberals don’t do that, do they. They just preach “sensitivity”. Yeah, I’ll shove my foot “sensitively” up your stupid fucking ass. It’s no wonder liberals come off as such morons. They earn it.
