Bummer. Peanut Butter Sandwiches Now Racist

Portland schools this year are teaching students about “white privilege.” This includes being aware of racist terms like peanut butter sandwiches.
Portland Tribune reported, via CowboyByte:

Verenice Gutierrez picks up on the subtle language of racism every day.

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?” says Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, a diverse school of 500 students in Northeast Portland’s Cully neighborhood.

“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.”

Guitierrez, along with all of Portland Public Schools’ principals, will start the new school year off this week by drilling in on the language of “Courageous Conversations,” the district-wide equity training being implemented in every building in phases during the past few years.

Through intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives, the premise is that if educators can understand their own “white privilege,” then they can change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance.

How nice. Now they’re starting off the school year by teaching white kids to hate themselves. Lovely.

    She should be fired NOW

    The people are nucking futs. Period.

    if you live in Portland, sell your home and get the hell out. Pull your kids from these indoctrination camps.

  • Ragspierre

    Am I tired of it? Oh, LOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGG ago.

    I don’t put up with it. Which is one reason I don’t live in Portland…or any place remotely LIKE it.

    Also, I have come to feel that having a kid in most public schools is tantamount to child abuse. I would not expose a child to that kind of Collectivist stupid.

    We DO have a culture. It is a very STRONG culture, but it is being corrupted by the likes of Bill Ayers, following along in the Frankfurt School model.

    this is just another example of the cancer spreading in our schools. wonder why a majority of chicago 8th graders can’t read proficiently? just take a look at the union members and their administrators. the progressives will never stop…they must be defeated.

    “What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?”

    Well, I guess those Somali’s and Hispanics who want to live in a land free of peanut butter sandwiches should stay in the land of their forefathers where there were no sandwiches.

    The horror of it all to be confronted by peanut butter sandwiches in your new country. What a shameful display of jingoism by those ugly Americans!

    I suppose concentrating on teaching the three R’s is too taxing for so-called teachers these days. Anyone still having a problem wondering why their precious children are leaving high school (those who don’t drop out before) not being able to read their diplomas?

  • BarkingAtTheMoon

    I’ll tell you what’s really racist. Knocking that fat ugly phony on her butt and then kicking her in the head for being such a butt kissing mental retard! THESE are the people indoctrinating the children of America, and the kids don’t know any better – these nasty evil snakes just smile and talk softly, the kids accept whatever they’re told.

    Parents….why are you allowing this woman to tell your children insane crap like this?

  • YouWorkForUs

    I have come to the decision that the folks who call us “racists” because we disagree with BHO/his agenda/his policies; who call us “racists” because we eat PBJ are simply covering up the fact that THEY are the racists and since they can’t deal with “facts”, they deflect by pointing a finger at everyone else.

    All you people out there who point a finger at us and call us “racists” remember that when you point a finger at me, you are pointing 3 fingers back at yourself! Take a good look at yourself first before you start attacking/criticizing the rest of us!

    Another over paid, over fed, under worked member of the NEA. Check out the pictures of the NEA protestors in Chicago! Different locations, same images.

  • Roland Johnson

    At what point do we tell these idiots to STFU and go back to teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic.

    What ever her degree is in it is not in something worth sharing with children.

    Where do we go to get them fired?

  • Ripped

    Amazing I guess these idiots feel they need to justify their pathetic existence and exorbitant income with some sort of teaching since they suck at the normal curriculum, like reading and math.

  • twolaneflash

    Teach the 3 R’s? Most of these “teachers” can’t do one R, much less three. Where teachers have been tested, the results were like those of Chicago students – bordering on the absurdly ignorant – with the tests declared RACIST as soon as the results were published.

    I told you that peanut farming Jummah Carter was a closet aryan race underground nazi party member !

    Does the left have a war going on with peanuts. For months we heard about kids being allergic to peanuts and dying after eating them. When that was pretty much debunked, they start on sandwiches? What’s next? Apple pie? And after that…Mom? Oh, I forgot. They’ve already started on Mom.

  • sjdauw

    Another example of Political Correctness run a muck. What you call “racist” is in fact an example of the founding majority culture. Better you teach fact and history than denigrate through name calling. Your self imagined enlightenment does minorities a disservice by delaying successful societal integration. Of course this is probably your true purpose.

  • Dee Dee

    She is just racist. I have never heard of hispanic students not eating sandwiches where they came from. Has she never heard of a Cuban Sandwich? If I could, I would send her one. I have never heard such idiocy in my life. It just goes to show that she knows nothing about hispanic culture. Not all hispanic countries have tacos, chimichangas, and corn tortillas as a staple. Tamales are made differently in hispanic countries depending on the country.

    Nevertheless, these children are in the United States and should assimilate and what she is doing is just making them stand out. That is why there is so much discord. People like her are the ones that are dividing this country into “us and them”. Anyway, wasn’t it George Washington Carver the one credited for inventing peanut butter? Wow, the woman is really racist.

  • DINORightMarie


    First, that anyone would buy into the Bill Ayers Education methodology, using “white privilidge” propaganda/garbage, is a reflection on the SCHOOL SYSTEM and the ADMINISTRATORS, not to mention the teachers. They sold their collective souls to this failed ideology long, long ago. Clean house!! Top to bottom.

    Second, peanut butter is an American invention – invented by George Washington Carver, for goodness sakes!!! How can that be a racist item?! Only by people saying that if our culture has evolved to favor sandwiches on bread, then we are somehow DISCRIMINATING against any and all who were not raised in this culture.

    Read Mark Levin’s books “Liberty and Tyranny” and “Ameritopia.” He covers this Marxist statist BS and indoctrination very well.

    Such “social justice” and “racism means WHITES discriminate against all others” need to be removed from the classrooms of this country – elementary, middle, high schools, as well as universities.

    That is a LOT of un-doing. But essential to taking our country back!

    The best way to end racism is to fire and silence racist provocateurs such as Verenice Gutierrez, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. Institutions that deliberately hire such people and give them authority to spout off are racist. At the top of the list is MSNBC, but many schools systems, colleges and universities are just as bad.

  • Scott Lassiter

    I’m going to take my ‘white privilege’ and vote for Mitt Romney. Guess I’ll need to go to a workshop after that one.
