On Wednesday, August 25th, 2021, the NY Board of Education / NY Board of Regents instituted the following protocol / mandate.
“The Board of Regents launched an initiative to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in schools across the New York State. (it actually reads “across the”) The Board expects that all school districts will develop policies that advance diversity, equity and inclusion – and that they implement such policies with fidelity and urgency.”
This is an aggressive racist, divisive, prejudiced, and discriminatory attack on white children. Let’s look at their three prong attack one at a time.
DIVERSITY – Brown v. The Board of Education solved that decades ago. It had to do with desegregating school districts. Here, the NY Board of Regents is suggesting schools in NY are still segregated. Further, they suggest schools should be busing in children of other races, creeds, colors, etc until there is an equal distribution of all races throughout the district. Essentially, an impossibility. What are you going to do if a district is 100% black, or 100% white, or 100% Hispanic? NY school districts are based upon residency. That is, if you live in Make-believe City, you go to Make-believe public schools unless your parents pay to have you go to private school. Make-believe public schools are funded by the tax base. For the district to be diverse it has to determine how many, based on percentage, of each race there is throughout the state and then go bus enough kids from each race to a particular district until there is “diversity”. So, do YOU want your children being bused all over the state until a particular district has it equal percentage of x race children?? Does a member of the Shinicock Nation in Southampton want their child bused to Rochester because they don’t have any Native Americans there? Does a black parent in Central Islip want their child bused to Southampton because the Shinicock Nation is short a few black students to balance out their ratio? I’ll make this simpler. Let’s say X District is 50% white, 20% Asian, 10% Indian (from India), 15% black, and 5% Hispanic. What happens if the school is 25% white (because the white population is older and their kids are already in college)? Does the district have to kick out certain races and cherry pick white kids from other districts to make their school “diverse”???? ASININE !!!!
EQUITY – note the word is not “equality”. The difference, at first, doesn’t seem important but it is massively important. Equal means you treat all children, regardless of race, creed, religion, sex, etc., the same. You treat them equally. Equity means you “make” all children equal by treating some better than others. And, since it is always the white child that all others need to be equal to, the white child is discriminated against in the school. And, how insulting is this for parents of non-white students. The NY Board of Regents is insinuating your child is of a lesser educational quality than a white child and needs special treatment to catch up to that white child. ASININE !!!!
INCLUSION – quite a joke. It actually allows “safe zones” where children of a particular race can congregate to discuss their shared experiences. Unless your’e white. If you’re white and you congregate, you’re a racist mob. All this does is DIVIDE the kids. Inclusion means all kids share a similar school culture. They have to “assimilate” to the shared experiences and practices of the group as a whole single unit not go off to their separate corners to remain different. Where’s the inclusion?? ASININE !!!!
The New York Board of Regents is practicing Critical Race Theory and shoving it down districts throats. Critical Race Theory strives to show that school districts are systematically racist. They are designed to advance the white student only. It strives to show students must maintain their individual identity categories and not adopt nor assimilate into American culture because American culture is racist and designed to advance the white person only. (So much for the “great melting pot”.) It strives to show that white children have a premium by being white. White kids are premium gas but your kid is simply unleaded. Wow. It strives to wipe out testing metrics, benchmarks and standardized tests because students who are not white are not smart enough to pass them. It strives to follow the current woke culture desire for us all to end up in the same place even if we didn’t work for it nor deserve it.
You, especially if you’re a parent of a child in school, have to stand up and voice your opposition to this racist educational mandate.
