Racism in K-12 Schools

It’s rampant in the San Diego Unified School District, even as it claims to be “combatting racism.”

Students will no longer be graded based on a yearly average, or on how late they turn in assignments. …
… Board members say the changes are part of a larger effort to combat racism.

Because most of the poor grades went to minority students, and figuring out why that might be and fixing the underlying problem(s) isn’t something for an educational institution to concern itself with.

Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student’s citizenship grade, not their academic grade.

Divisiveness

It’s not from the Right, nor even from the extremists on the Right or the Left.

No, the Mainstream Left and it’s carried through politically by the Left’s Progressive-Democratic Party; they have a virtual monopoly on divisiveness.  Here are just a few examples, provided by Jim DeMint in a slightly different, but related context. DeMint suggests these are from the radical Left, but he’s mistaken in that. The Left and Party have moved so far left that these positions are, in fact, their mainstream.

Joe Biden’s “Protestors”

Portland’s rioters were at it again Sunday, this time tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and smashing windows. And this:

One person could be heard saying, “F— all you colonizers. Every one of you that’s against Black Lives Matter can f— the f— off.”

This is the same BLM that Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Joe Biden refuses to condemn, or even to gently criticize.

Keep it in mind as you vote.

Freedom of Speech

Not here. Not ever.  You do not have permission to criticize us or any thing, subject, object, or … that we hold above reproach, especially that of your commoner selves.

According to a draft of the Loudoun County Public School district board’s proposed speech code, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, employees would not be allowed to criticize the school district’s “commitment to action-oriented equity practices” in all forms of public and personal communication.

And

Racism of the Progressive-Democratic Party—Again

Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Joe Biden is at it again. Here’s another example of his utter contempt (not hatred, mind you) for blacks.

They’re saying, “Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.”

Not only are blacks incapable of thinking independently, as Biden said—twice—earlier in comparing them with Hispanics, now he’s saying they’re not even capable of doing anything more complex than shelf-stacking; certainly not capable of being first responders, nurses, doctors.

The Racism of the Left

Separate from the segregationist identity politics so loudly practiced by the Left and its Progressive-Democratic Party is this. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear two Arizona voting cases

Arizona Republican Party v Democratic National Committee and Brnovich v Democratic National Committee involving Arizona election laws that ban ballot harvesting and voting in other precincts.

As the Editorial Board puts it [emphasis added],

Lies of the Progressive-Democrat

Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Joe Biden has been busy….

Falsely claimed wrote a USA Today op-ed in late January warning that a pandemic was coming and calling for action

Washington Post:

The article itself was more of an attack on President Trump…than a detailed plan for action against a possible pandemic

Falsely claimed 36,000 lives could have been saved “if he had listened to me…and acted just one week earlier”

Washington Post:

[H]e did not specifically call for social-distancing measures as early as March 1 or even March 8, though he implies that he did

BLM

This is the gang that Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Joe Biden and Progressive-Democratic Party Vice Presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D, CA) flat refuse to condemn.

Think about that as you prepare to cast your vote.

Lies of Progressive-Democrats

Here’s more.

In late July 2016, US intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against US Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.

Despite this lack of certainty, it was clear that

Lynching and Hate Crimes Generally

President Donald Trump, in his Platinum Plan for revitalizing black communities and freeing them from the Progressive-Democrats’ welfare cage, says he wants to make lynching a national-level hate crime.

That’s on the right track, but it is IMNSHO wide of the mark.

I don’t think there should be any hate crime definitions at all. The crime is the crime, and the victim is just as robbed, just as beaten, just as dead, his property just as destroyed regardless of motive or depravity of motive.

The hate aspect of a crime cannot be ignored, though: the appropriate time to consider this aspect is during the sentencing phase, given conviction.
