Public School Teaches
“White Privilege” Class

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 2:22:53 PM

A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors. (Snip) The “American Diversity” class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, Fox News has learned. “They’re teaching white guilt,” one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’” The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became

I wonder if we will ever be able to stop this gross misconduct. They sure do know how to play the game well. It is overwhelming and depressing.

More unchallengeable received Leftist "wisdom."

Had enough?

BTW, as these kids are deemed equipped to "[discuss] things in regard to cultural diversity" [a superlatively-benign take on the material, no?], we can be confident their math, reading, science, history, civics, etc. performance is quite first-rate, can we not?

It´s not just American "kids". When I was in China 2 years ago, I went to dinner with several co-workers. One was an Indian born woman in her mid-30´s who moved to the US for college, stayed and became an American citizen. She had a glass or two of wine and made a comment about the "white superiority complex" and then started whining how hard it was for a "woman of color". I said "enough, that´s offensive". She said it wasn´t and continued. The AA Director who was along to shop (she didn´t do any work) agreed with her. If I had said anything like that I would have been fired. If I complained nothing would have happened. I pretty much stopped talking to her after that and about 6 months later she moved to another job and the AA Director was layed off (lots of complaints from those that worked for her). The Indian woman left the company a few month later and burned alot of bridges. She is trying to get back into the company.

Another example of leaving even a single libtard loose in society is the same as having a single rotten apple in the barrel - you can´t leave a single one in America if you want the Republic to survive.

Walter Williams opined at the end of last October (Black & White Standards) that there are two different Standards being adhered to. Maybe we should be teaching that in schools. Outcome expectations seem to have diverged with the arrival of the charlatans of victimhood.

Do we have to have a destroyed economy or country to restart a convergence?

Wonder how often it occurs to people that peddling ´white guilt´ is more than not a transparent attempt to deflect responsibility for garbage ethics on the other end of the spectrum?

Sort of like the current gun issues - the ´racial statistics´ in that area are totally off the table - for good reason - they´re reprehensible.

And while it wasn´t ´white oppression´ that created that problem - you´ll hear plenty of excuses to the contrary.

Race relations have never been more bogus - or more ´off the table´ than they currently are. A few minutes watching our ´affirmative action president´ make that pretty clear.

WHITE privilege? A little behind the times in rural Wisconsin. She´s teaching a lesson from a hundred years ago. She´s teaching buggy whips and outhouses and "man will never fly." Today´s modern American priviledge, 21st Century privilege, is BLACK privilege.

Let´s see, with Obamaphones, EITC, childcare credit, foodstamps, public housing, free school lunch, free school breakfast, free cable TV, medicaid, how many black people is every employed white person carrying on his back? Giddyup.

A half million Europeans were slaves in North Africa ......... From prehistoric times forward almost all subsequent immigrations conquered and enslaved the previous one in Western Europe.

Everyone´s ancestors have been misused, killed, by ´others´.

Stop teaching Victimology and Entitlement. for goodness sake ............ ´All men are created equal.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas. Andrea Lynne Chisholm, 54, and Colin A.J. Chisholm III, 62, were charged in March with making $167,420 in fraudulent medical and food-stamp claims from 2005 to 2012. They were deported from the Bahamas on Monday and arrested hours later in Florida, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787. “It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico. “There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists.

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

After an international bidding war, a Westside mansion often described as a French palace has changed hands for $102 million, making it the most expensive residential sale ever recorded in Southern California. As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home´s unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
