Charlotte, NC — Public schools nationwide are adopting Black Lives Matter curriculum presenting themes such as “systemic racism,” “police brutality,” and “white privilege” while turning children into “little Marxists,” according to the Federalist. The New York City Department of Education is one of many school systems set to roll out the BLM-themed lesson plans this fall, write Sloan Rachmuth and Katie Jensen.
This summer, North Carolina’s largest school system, Wake County Public Schools, launched a website providing BLM lessons for teachers to use in classrooms and for parents to use at home. It urges teachers to “address the injustices that exist beyond education by the conversations we have with others, by speaking up when we see hate, by supporting efforts that oppose racism and oppression, and by directly engaging in advocacy work.”
The Federalist writers contend that while condemning racism is laudable; it’s not what’s really happening. Step three of the recruitment process states that “racial equity accountability must be tied to specific outcomes.” The outcomes clearly are centered on activism on behalf of the BLM movement.
Noting BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-described trained Marxist, is featured on the homepage of the Wake County School System’s website. In a 2018 interview, Cullors also boasted of receiving training from a former member of the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground who was charged with attempted murder of police officers in Boston in 1969.
Cullors is a vocal anti-Israel activist and close ally of the disgraced, anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She organized a BLM event in Los Angeles May 30 in which three Jewish schools and five synagogues were vandalized with graffiti such as “Free Palestine” and “F-ck Israel.”
Another public school plan, in Philadelphia, aims to “work towards an anti-racist agenda” and “learning mindsets and practices rooted in Black liberation,” The Federalist reports. Black liberation is a Marxist theological and social movement that emerged in the late 1960s that regards America and all of its institutions as “systemically racist.”
President Barack Obama’s former “spiritual leader” Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a devotee who famously summed up the movement in a sermon: “No, no, no, not God bless America! God d-mn America.” This and the most recent and patently untrue “1619 Project” are just two of the many ways school systems are either knowingly or unknowingly indoctrinating our students.
It is “a very unbalanced, one-sided account.” It is “wrong in so many ways.” It is “not only ahistorical,” but “actually anti-historical.” It is “a tendentious and partial reading of American history.”
The overt political nature of the 1619 Project should alert parents, educators, members of school boards, and political leaders that a major political experiment is being practiced on the nation’s schoolchildren.
Since its publication in August, the 1619 Project has been adopted in more than 3,500 classrooms in all 50 states, according to the 2019 annual report of the Pulitzer Center, which has partnered with the Times on the project. Five school systems, including Chicago and Washington, D.C., have adopted it district-wide.
The curriculum provides reading material, activities, videos, graphic organizers, etc., that will indoctrinate young minds on how America and its capitalist system are racist to the core. Its goal: destroy our present institutions, economic system and ways of thinking, and replace them.
