Teaching Them to Hate US

The new textbooks depict a white-dominant America that is inherently oppressive. Non-whites are noble victims, struggling against an “institutionally racist” system that tries to keep them ignorant and poor. Brutal whites cling to a world that has passed them by.

The new school text books.

In 2010, Los Angeles got a new school, the Robert F. Kennedy K-12 Learning Center. Built on the site of the old Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles where Kennedy was assassinated in 1968, the school’s website notes that “the school was built to relieve underperforming and overcrowded schools located in the historically underserved neighborhoods of Pico-Union and Koreatown.”

At the school’s dedication, Robert Kennedy’s son, Maxwell Kennedy, proclaimed that “this new K-12 learning center will educate and empower our young people and their parents to fight for economic and social justice.”

Today, almost the entire Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has been turned into a series of “schools of social justice” based on the premise that the United States is a racist, oppressive nation that benefits whites at the expense non-whites. Today’s textbooks make that very clear.

During the first half of the 20th century, public-school textbooks instilled such values as patriotism and honesty, and honored our laws and language. Children of immigrants assimilated by learning about America’s ethics, standards, and codes of behavior.

Selections from a seventh-grade reader of the 1940s, Readings in Literature, promoted pride in America and made sure the next generation shared the culture of its ancestors. Here are the first four selections:

America the Beautiful, by Katherine Lee Bates

What is it to be An American? by Henry Cabot Lodge

Stand by Your Country, by Edward Everett Hale

The Morning of the Revolution, by George William Curtis
