Sad: California Parents and Religious Leaders Fight To Remove Teacher Because Of His Skin Color
But, but, but…I thought this was a post-racial America. This seems to be the exact opposite:
With just weeks before the new Rutherford B. Gaston Middle School opens in southwest Fresno, community and church leaders are calling on Fresno Unified School District to reconsider its hiring of a white teacher to instruct African-American, Latino and Southeast Asian studies there.
He’s white, so he can’t teach those courses.
But they’re not racists, or something.
Just kidding. They’re totally racist.
At an early morning news conference Monday, a small group of concerned citizens led by Rev. Karen Crozier met in front of the school on Church Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
“We’re just saying what the community wants. We didn’t fight for a white male or female teacher to educate our babies,” Crozier said. “We still are at these racial fault lines, and we want someone who will be able to think critically about those racial fault lines and how do we help heal, to restore the problems that have existed.”
“We’re” at a racial fault line?
I’m not at a racial fault like. You might be, but I’m not.
You’re in the fault line. Living in it. Bathing in it.
It’s a sad, sick mind that thinks like this.
