National Education Conference Blames White People For Problems With Education System
When elected, it was hoped President Obama would help unite the American people. That he might heal what was left of the racial divide in this nation. But even though we are reaching the end of his 2nd term, it is now obvious that, thanks to his constant examples of divisiveness, racial tensions are worse, not better.
Case in point.
PJ Media reports that a major national education conference in Baltimore this weekend centers solely around blaming white people and their supremacy for problems in education:
“Obama wanted “a national conversation on race.” This conference is what he meant: “interrupting whiteness” in American schools, “challenging white supremacy,” and eliminating the “white privilege” of Caucasian students.
A major national conference for teachers and school administrators starting on Saturday, October 10, in Baltimore will focus exclusively on race and racism, featuring workshops on “interrupting whiteness” in American schools, the “dominance of White supremacy” in society, “White privilege” enjoyed by Caucasian students, “white domination of thought,” and how to “decenter whiteness.”
The conference, officially titled The National Summit for Courageous Conversation 2015, is organized by the Pacific Educational Group (PEG), a large and influential consulting firm hired by hundreds of school districts nationwide — often under pressure from the federal government — to address “racial gaps” in scholastic performance and behavior problems in the classroom.”
To read more about the rather racist workshops, some of which are titled “White Privilege, White Responsibility: Deepening Our Commitment as White Allies in the Struggle for Racial Equity in Schools” and “It Ain’t H1N1, But It’s Just as Deadly: The Negative Effects of White Privilege for People of Color” and to learn other details about the conference I suggest you visit the very well written, and documented article on PJ Media (Here).
Because frankly, my White Privilege just gets in the way of truly doing it justice. Or is it that my whiteness blinds me to my supposed guilt of the oppression I never committed, but yet should take credit for in their search for some person’s, whom I never offended, social justice? Or..is it I use too much bleach on the whites in my laundry?? Or….ugh…something like that…(facepalm)
