There is no racism in America. People are not excluded from jobs or not allowed admission to a school because of the color of the skin. The whole racism thing is over, solved, kaput, no longer an issue. You’all can go home now. Especially if you live in Texas and/or are concerned with Social Studies curriculum. …
Peter Morrison is on a Texas State Board of Education panel set up to help revise state standards in Social Studies And he’s trying to do a lot of work in this position. He’s trying to edumicate us all on how racism is pretty much passe, and at the same time, he’s trying to make the point that this black boy pretending to be president is stepping out of line.
Regarding President Obama’s speech to the school children of last week:
“Obama’s speech contained plenty of propaganda, in both what was said and what was omitted. He told kids that they may face road blocks, such as discrimination. Really? It makes me wonder which kids he’s speaking to, because I’m not sure of where in America minorities are facing discrimination in employment or education. What company won’t hire non-whites? What schools won’t accept minorities? What banks makes loan decisions on skin color?”
Let me reiterate. These are the words of a man specifically put on the school board committee to revise social studies standards. In actual schools. In Texas.
But wait, there is more…
“Obama didn’t mention the fact that he’s in favor of racial discrimination against the white students listening. He has already appointed a Supreme Court justice who is a big fan of racial preferences for non-whites and will no doubt make the problem even worse from the high court. Obama has made it clear he intends to do much, much more to expand affirmative action, racial quotas, and other anti-white discrimination.”
These colored people really do stick together, it would seem.
The above is just an extension of the post-Civil Rights resentment we see among working and middle class white southern Yahoos like Mr. Peterson and South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson. From the TFN:
These right-wing critics have repeatedly complained about “multiculturalism” and what they see as an “overrepresentation of minorities” in the social studies standards. Some have even demanded that historical figures who did so much to advance the cause of civil rights for the poor and minorities — people like Cesar Chavez and Thurgood Marshall — should be removed from the standards because they are “poor role models” or their accomplishments were supposedly inferior.
