Back to School, Back to a Liberal Agenda; New ‘Anti-Racist’ Curriculum in Largest School District
It’s almost back to school around the country. Before we focus on masks or no masks and what the classroom is going to look like, we have to focus on what the students are going to be taught. The liberal agenda has managed to spew across Virginia’s curriculum.
Students within the Fairfax County School District of Virginia will be taught a full anti-racist curriculum. This means that history as we know it will be rewritten to satisfy the far left. If you don’t recognize what your kids are being taught, there’s a reason for that.
Some of the frameworks for the program comes from “Teaching Tolerance,” an educational branch of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Students throughout the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th grades will be required to “examine materials, events, and institutions critically attending to power, position, and bias.”
Colleen Eddy, the social studies coordinator for the school system, believes that the lessons will help with the “overrepresentation of white and Eurocentric history.” The problem with this is that the United States was founded by white Europeans. To say anything other than that is false and misleading.
There’s definitely a not-so-hidden agenda found within the new approach to teaching American history. According to the Free Beacon, Teaching Tolerance focuses on the idea that “the United States was founded on protecting the interests of white, Christian men who owned property.”
While true, it’s also important to focus on how times have changed over the years. Clearly, there’s so much more to the United States now as we focus on the interests of everyone – of every color, gender, and religion. However, they’re not going to focus on that.
Instead, they’ll focus on how slavery was critical to the economic growth of the nation and how founding documents (like the declaration and the constitution) were written to preserve slavery.
There’s also a new concept of being anti-racist. Now, it’s no longer okay to simply not be racist. No. We have to rid ourselves of racist attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs, However, CNN also provided more, including, “Donating to activist organizations and protesting injustices are definitely good starts to becoming an ally. But that’s not enough. Actively rebutting prejudices in your own circles is key to lasting change, as those ideas and beliefs — unless challenged — are what our children absorb and are woven into the fabric of our culture.”
Cool, so now, we also have to be social justice warriors, even within our own circles of friends. We have to donate. We have to protest.
So, Virginia has managed to figure out a way to teach all of our children how to be BLM protesters before they even get out of grade school. How is this a good thing?
Where is the other side, however? There are agendas all throughout the Democratic party that focuses on racism solely as it pertains to how whites view blacks. Where is the other side? How many times are blacks racist against whites? How they view us is as if they’re accusing us of the sins of our ancestors – and that’s assuming that our ancestors were slave owners just because of the color of our skin. Racism works both ways. Just as whites have derogatory names for black people, blacks have derogatory names for white people. Where are the courses to show how there needs to be more acceptance all across the board?
Apparently, if we say things such as “All lives matter” or “Don’t blame me, I never owned slaves,” these are considered microaggressions. They’re hostile and negative – and they have an insidious effect on the psyche of a black person.
It’s likely that the courses being taught in the one county of Virginia will expand to the rest of the state – and, potentially, the entire country. Then, our kids will not only be anti-racist but also social warriors to ensure that every white person has effectively undone their whiteness enough to appease the far left.
