Ann Arbor school bans white kids from field trip
After electing anointing a black man with a muslim name to the presidency, the US had supposedly crossed the racial divide. The progressives and the state-run media, with thrills running up their legs, literally swooned that this man, this sort-of God, would save us all from our bigoted, hateful selves. Now how is that working for us? Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. This post (from the blogprof) gives a good illustration.
Remember a few years ago that the phrase “driving while black” was used often to excuse being pulled over for whatever traffic violation? Well, looks like now there is a more real racism – “learning while white.” You don’t get a ticket for being white. Instead, you lose your educational opportunity. From Ann Arbor.com (HT: Jennifer Gratz on FB): Field trip for black students sparks controversy at Ann Arbor elementary school
An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.
Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.
White students not allowed! This isn’t even separate but equal, it is rather separate and unequal by design! And the principle of the elementary school is defending this by pointing out the benefit to the black students that got to go:
“In hindsight, this field trip could have been approached and arranged in a better way,” Madison wrote. “But as I reflect upon the look of excitement, enthusiasm and energy that I saw in these children’s eyes as they stood in the presence of a renowned African American rocket scientist in a very successful position, it gave the kids an opportunity to see this type of achievement is possible for even them.
“It was not a wasted venture for I know one day they might want to aspire to be the first astronaut or scientist standing on the Planet Mars.
Thus begs a question: would the white children have not gotten the same benefit from attending that event? Would Principal Madison not have seen “excitement, enthusiasm and energy” in the white students eyes as well?
Apparently not. Where’s the state-run media on this story? What would happen if a school had a field trip for white students only? You can be sure that the state-run media would be all over that story.
