Hold on to your “Lilly white backsides,” patriots!
That is the latest watchword from progressive “intellectuals” who for years forced Americans of differing racial and cultural backgrounds to integrate in order to thwart “Separate, but not equal” practices, which, they claimed, denied poor black kids the opportunity to share old school buses and failed teaching methods with “privileged” Caucasians enjoying the lavish advantages that accrue to those with pale features and light complexions.
It took the so-called intellectuals quite a while, but they finally figured out that simply sitting on a bus, or in a class room, next to a white person is, in and of itself, unlikely to impact a black child’s prospects for financial or social success.
In fact, looking back, the entire idea reeks of racism nearly offensive as any of the Legacy of Discrimination trash emanating from the Old South!
Still, because liberalism is most assuredly a mental disorder, a gaggle of progressive bozos with far too much time on their hands is pushing for a Renaissance of Segregation to combat racism in New York City.
As reported at Ref 1:
“Can racism be stopped in the third grade?”Once again, the liberal mind fails to understand the root issue and advances a solution guaranteed to only make matters worse
That’s the question asked in this week’s New York Magazine cover story by journalist Lisa Miller.
At the Fieldston Lower School, a $43,000-per-year Riverdale institution, the administration sees racism everywhere. Just consider the “microaggressions” that have been uncovered.
According to the piece: “A girl puts her hands in another girl’s hair; a boy asks his Asian friend where he’s really from. A number of years ago, a white student in a fourth-grade biography unit delivered a presentation on Jackie Robinson while in black face.”
Here’s a news flash, folks: This is not racism. It’s children being curious about the way their friends look and trying their best to look like an American hero.
If you want it to stop, you can tell them that it’s not appropriate to touch other people without their permission, that many people who look different were born in this country. and that if you’re going to dress up as someone else, you don’t have to change the color of your skin.
You want to know what real racism looks like? Try this. In response to these incidents, as well as a whole bunch of multi-culti-educational mumbo-jumbo, Fieldston has decided to institute a policy of … segregation. Yes, that’s right. We have finally come full circle.
The new liberal solution to the problems of racial tension in America today is to have third-graders fill out a questionnaire identifying their races and then spend time once a week with people who look just like them.
Because people who look alike also think alike. And let’s face it, you can only really feel comfortable with people who look like you."
Want to stop racism?
Force liberals to stop fomenting racial tensions with school busing and other failed programs that pit race against race.
