The news today is that Coca Cola is the latest company to teach white employees that they are all racists and are part of the problem. They go on to say that fixing this requires them to be “less white.” This is not a new concept.

At the beginning of each school year, teachers spend a day being trained on policy changes for the coming year. During the briefings in 2019, one of the meetings was with the discipline team. As usual, we reviewed discipline trends from the previous year and were then told how we were to address those issues.

When a teacher has an issue with a student being disruptive in class and the behavior is serious enough or repetitive enough that it cannot be handled in the classroom, that teacher refers the student to discipline. This referral process happens more in some classes than others. I teach the :underperforming” students, and the office admitted to me that they purposely give me the troublemakers because I am better at handling them. As a result, I wrote over 300 referrals the previous school year. Everything from fighting, to cheating, cell phone usage in class, sleeping, to possession of drugs (including weed and tobacco), and (once) weapons.

So that year we were presented with the statistics for discipline. Black students comprise 30% of our student body, but represented over 50% of our discipline referrals. We were told that this meant we as teachers were racist. That is faulty logic. In order for this to be true, black students would have to break the rules at the same rate as other demographics. I asked the team what percentage of our black student body was part of the “honors” track- the students who are likely college bound, and are all taking more advanced coursework, like AP classes. He asked why that was relevant, and I pointed out that honors students almost never are discipline problems.

He then said that black students had poor grades and poor test scores because the entire system was racist and discriminated against black students. I left it there, because my point was made. However, that is the attitude that is present in the USA today. In education today.

I was reading that they are now pushing to eliminate critical thinking from the curriculum. It is racist you see.

My wife, a teacher, didn’t get it as her current curriculum requires it as one of three foundational circles. Yeah, that is the term she used.

But when we started discussing why they might want to remove it, she couldn’t figure out out. She does use critical thinking but she attributes it to common sense or everybody knows.

We know that without critical thinking it becomes much easier to lie and mislead the public.

“It was an armed insurrection!”

“How many people were arrested with guns? How many pictures of people waving guns are there?”

“They were armed!”

“With bats and pepper spray and body armor”

“So the people you are scared of because they have to many weapons of war showed up at a coup/insurrection with no guns, right….”

“Well two people who weren’t on the grounds were arrested and charged with having a gun in DC”

“Bless your heart…”

“C’mon lets keep going and cross this lake – it’s frozen solid. Nothing moving at all.”

“Wait – how do you know – we might tread on thin ice and go right under. The whole thing could crack wide open!”

“Heck are you kidding? We’ve made it this far and nothing has happened. I’m telling you, we can keep going and we’ll reach the other side without ‘falling in’.”

I heard one person say that the best response to Coke pushing to be less White is “Drink Pepsi”

Repeat the lie often enough and it will become the truth . Want to know if they are lying, there lips are moving. It disgusts me to no end when these rat bastards stand in front of the flag and lie to us.

My dogs instinctively bark at squirrels. It’s dog privilege. I asked my dogs to consider their dog privilege before barking at squirrels. They were disinterested and took a nap. Dogs are smart.
