Your new school curriculum: social justice for all

Where do education theorists learn such dumb ideas? In education school, and especially in OISE (the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education), which is a highly influential hotbed of nutty social theory.

Canada’s biggest school system has some problems. Math scores are flat or in decline. Too many kids aren’t doing well in school, and too many of them are visible minorities. Something must be done. What is it?

The answer is to make social justice and “equity” the main focus of education in Ontario. Every school board, school and classroom will be re-engineered to root out racism and discrimination. School boards will collect data on race and ethnicity to ensure that equity is reflected in everything from staff hires to student suspensions. Teaching materials will be revised to be less Eurocentric. Children will be taught the history of colonialism, residential schools and oppression. Kids in the “applied” stream will be placed in the academic stream, because streaming is discriminatory.

The social-justice movement has spread across the country, most notably in Alberta and British Columbia. “Equality” is no longer the goal. The new goal is “equity,” a very different concept. According to a sweeping draft plan prepared for the Toronto District School Board, equity is not achieved by treating students fairly. It is achieved by challenging “entrenched systems of power and privilege” and “constantly working to centre the conversation around the effects of inequity, oppression, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of hate and discrimination specifically for racialized students.”

Admin frets for ‘humanity’ of children raised by white parents

A University of Colorado, Denver administrator is worried that white children may “forfeit their humanity” if they aren’t raised by sufficiently progressive parents. In a recent academic journal article, Naomi Nishi calls for “critical race parenting” of white children “to ward off white identity and whiteness before children succumb and forfeit their humanity in order to join the oppressor.”

A University of Colorado, Denver administrator worries that white children may “forfeit their humanity” if they aren’t raised by sufficiently progressive parents.

In an academic article, Naomi Nishi, who facilitates educational programs for professors and periodically teaches classes, argues that parents should employ “critical race parenting” to prevent white children from committing “racial microaggressions” against their peers.

Nishi goes on to suggest that white people are “constantly wielding racial microaggressions,” and that over time these microaggressions can cause “racial battle fatigue,” noting that children of color are especially susceptible to the “self-hatred” this causes.

White children, on the other hand, are especially prone to committing racial microaggressions because they “learn a complicated dance of whiteness” that teaches them not only to “maintain and defend whiteness,” but to do so while claiming to be “colorblind.”

UMich students demand more paid ‘diversity labor’

The University of Michigan’s Graduate Employees Organization is demanding that the school pay more students to perform “diversity labor” in order to make campus “more livable, and survivable.”

Students at the University of Michigan are demanding that the school pay more students to do “diversity labor,” saying the six students already employed aren’t nearly enough.

In April, at least 250 students staged a sit-in at the school to advocate for paid diversity labor, according to The Michigan Daily, which resulted in the school hiring six graduate students, who now receive $9,868 per semester their work

But the school’s Graduate Employees Organization (GEO), which represents numerous graduate students, is now calling for the school to hire at least 23 students, with Jennifer Piedmont, the head of the GEO’s diversity committee, telling Campus Reform that making the school “survivable” requires more diversity labor.

Diversity labor, she said, is “about making the campus climate more livable, and survivable,” adding that graduate students should be compensated for everything they do to “survive and thrive in their departments” while fighting “against enduring structures of oppression or stratification” on campus.

Unconditional Surrender: NFL Gives Players $89 Million for ‘Social Justice’ Spending with No Condition That Anthem Protests Will End

The National Football League and player representatives came to an agreement on Wednesday evening, that the league would throw $89 million at so-called “social justice” issues.

The money represents a desperate attempt by the league to put an end to the constant anti-American protests held during the playing of the national anthem. Though, the agreement does not include a condition that the anthem protests will end.

The two parties have agreed in principle that the league will spend the $89 million over a seven-year period on causes dealing with “criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education,” ESPN reported.

The league is set to put more cash into these “social justice” issues than it has to support breast cancer awareness or its Salute to Service program, which celebrates and supports members of our armed forces.

The agreement may have been fast-tracked because of reports that appeared saying that the player’s coalition had begun unraveling as some of the more radical players had reportedly become dissatisfied with the negotiations and agreements made by their representatives, Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles) and Anquan Boldin (retired).

Earlier reports found that some of the groups set to receive portions of the NFL’s hush money include avowed communist Van Jones’ Dream Corps, which includes so-called “green energy” boosters Green For All, and numerous groups sponsored by hardcore leftist billionaire George Soros.

Dalhousie University makes ‘Emergency Hijab Kits’ available on campus

“The university has not had a case where someone has had their headdress targeted,” she said in an email. “Our expectation is that they won’t have to be used.”

Dalhousie University has made ‘Emergency Hijab Kits’ available to female Muslim students at multiple locations across the Halifax campus.

The fear is that female Dalhousie Muslim students are being targeted by individuals on and off campus and are having their hijabs forcibly removed. However, no such incidents have been reported to authorities.

The project was a joint venture between the Dalhousie Student Union (DSU) and Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG) and launched earlier this month.

Student op-ed calls white people ‘an abomination’

Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.” The op-ed generated intense criticism from readers who felt that it was simply designed to inflame racial tensions and should have raised red flags for the paper’s editors.

Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.”

“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student columnist Rudy Martinez begins the op-ed, which The University Star has not posted on its website.

The piece documents Martinez’s personal opinion of “whiteness” and “white people,” which he defines to include anyone who is “a descendant of those Europeans who chose to abandon their identity in search of something ‘new’—stolen land.”

Contending that racial categories “are used to subjugate non-white people,” Martinez complains that “in Texas, a bizarre state I have now inhabited for four years, I continuously meet individuals that either deny the existence of white privilege or fail to do something productive with it.”

Black Lives Matter Organizes ‘Black Xmas’ To Divest From ‘White Corporations’ And ‘White Capitalism’

BLM launched a Black Xmas website on Saturday which calls for “no spending with White corporations” through New Year’s Day, encouraging supporters to donate to allied, black-led community groups or black-owned businesses instead.

Dr. Melina Abdullah, a professor at California State University-Los Angeles (CSU-LA,) who is also a national Black Lives Matter (BLM) leader, is urging allies to support the movement’s “Black Xmas” this holiday season by divesting from “white corporations.”

She claims “white capitalism” is an American institution that is inherently racist, therefore black people should pursue more collectivist approaches to economic empowerment.

“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” said Abdullah, a founding member of BLM who leads its Los Angeles chapter (BLM-LA).

“We have to not only disrupt the systems of policing that literally kill our people, but we have to disrupt the white supremacist, capitalistic, patriarchal, heteronormative system that is really the root cause of these police killings.”

Indiana Nurse Under Investigation for Tweets about Killing White Babies

When asked which department Baker works in, the hospital declined to answer. Baker’s Twitter feed was littered with anti-white sentiments.

An Indiana University Health nurse is under fire for racist tweets about killing white babies.

Online Redditors and Twitter users tracked nurse Taiyesha Baker to Riley Children’s Health, an affiliate of Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. PJ Media reached out to the hospital and received this statement:

We are aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.

Morrissey: ‘If you make everything multicultural, you won’t have any culture’

‘I want Germany to be German. I want France to be French.’

Music legend Morrissey has hit out at multiculturalism and Angela Merkel, accusing her in an interview with German media of destroying Europe’s identity.

“If you try to make everything multicultural, you will not have any culture in the end,” the Smiths frontman told the Spiegel newspaper.

“I want Germany to be German. I want France to be French.”

The ‘Big Mouth Strikes Again’ singer criticised Angela Merkel’s open border policy. He said: “Berlin has become the rape capital. Many people think it was a mistake of Angela Merkel that she said in the beginning: ‘Come, come here!’ And then: ‘Yikes, yikes, don’t!’ ”

He rounded the interview off by going back to identity, summarising his point by saying: “I think every country should preserve its identity. Millions of people have died for German identity. If you think they deserve respect, you must protect their country. “
