Flashback: When Liberal Sites Mocked Otto Warmbier For Getting What He Deserved 

Unreal.

 reports: After suffering 17 months of brutal captivity in North Korea, Otto Warmbier died Monday, having spent more than a year in a coma before his release last week.

After news of his death, Twitter users were quick to resurface articles from liberal sites Salon, Huffington Post, and Bustle in 2016 mocking the college student for getting what he deserved.

Warmbier was accused of stealing a propaganda poster from the hotel he was staying at in North Korea and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.

[VIDEO] Eric July’s Principled Rant Goes Viral: ‘White Liberals Fuel Racism!’

…He makes some great points about the liberal response, which makes it seem as if all white people approve of the evil acts in Charleston yesterday.

New High-School Physics Curriculum Includes Lessons on White Privilege

Katherine Timpfpage_2014_200_timpf writes: A high-school physics teacher has developed his own six-day curriculum that he uses to teach about institutional racism, privilege, and social justice as part of his seniors’ physics classes.rifkin

The teacher, Moses Rifkin of University Prep in Seattle, has also been promoting the lesson plan to other high-school science instructors.

“I was jealous of my colleagues in English and History who got to talk every day in class about society and how it worked and how to be moral and caring and kind, whereas those conversations with students only happened for me outside the classroom.”

John Burk, a math and physics teacher from Delaware, said that he learned about the curriculum when he met Rifkin at a People of Color Conference and gushed that it “brilliantly brings lessons about social justice, privilege, and institutional racism into the physics classroom.”

In fact, Burk loved the unit so much that he had Rifkin write a guest post about it in his (Burk’s) own blog, in which Rifkin explained:

“I was jealous of my colleagues in English and History who got to talk every day in class about society and how it worked and how to be moral and caring and kind, whereas those conversations with students only happened for me outside the classroom.”

“That I was teaching at a private school only made matters worse: my students weren’t learning about their own privilege (academic and, in most cases, economic and racial),” Rifkin continued.

During one section of the course, Rifkin’s post explains, students study black physicists. For a homework assignment, he instructs students to learn about a pre-1950s black physicist and also a modern black physicist. Read the rest of this entry »


The Myth Of White Privilege

image9-300x200For the Houston Chronicle writes:

Years ago I started reading about the critical race theory and post traumatic slave syndrome. Now we are hearing more about the theory of ‘white privilege.” Simply put, white privilege is the belief that by just being white you are given privilege not given to blacks, and that blacks suffer from the legacy of slavery and pre civil rights, even those that were born well after slavery was history, and and civil rights were passed.

Let’s be clear about one thing. I know racism still exists. I don’t deny the reality of ‘driving while black” or a store clerk following around a black person, but not a white person, or people like Mark Cuban and Jesse Jackson saying they fear black kids on dark streets late at night. I don’t deny that blacks are arrested in greater numbers than whites for the same crimes. I don’t deny the injustice in the criminal justice system. I don’t deny the inequity in black inner city schools compared to majority white schools. All these things are real and disturbingly unfair. But I contend they are not the result of ‘white privilege.’image5-300x199-1

White privilege, along with the critical race theory and post traumatic slave syndrome, are liberal false theories and ideologies designed to ignore the real reasons for failings in the inner city black community. Liberals and liberal academia cannot face, nor acknowledge, that the true reason for these failings lie in decades of Democrat liberal policies. They can’t acknowledge that government dependency, welfare, food stamps, and a host of other government programs that were supposed to help the black community, actually proved to have the opposite effect. They can’t acknowledge this because they were the architect of these policies.

image8-300x230Let’s go back in time to Harlem in the 1950′s. Make no mistake, there was unrelenting racial injustices, discrimination, and unfair treatment, but if you look at Harlem solely within the black community itself, Harlem was a bustling part of New York where black owned businesses thrived, iconic music was born, and 90 percent of black babies were born into intact families. There were problems to be sure, but not nearly the gang related problems of today in the inner city with unemployment, drugs, single parenting, incarceration, and despair. There also wasn’t government dependency. Read the rest of this entry »


Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich is Racist, Says Portland School Official

English: A peanut butter and jelly sandwich, m...

Nathan Harden reports:  Did you know that eating or even talking about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could be considered racist?

That’s right.

Apparently, it’s because people in some cultures don’t eat sandwich bread. Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland explained in and interview with the Portland Tribune:

“Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year,” the Tribune said.

“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” Gutierrez asked. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”

…The Tribune noted that the school started the new year with “intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,” to help educators understand their own “white privilege,” in order to “change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance.””Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation — to examine a news article and discuss the ‘white privilege’ it conveys,” the Tribune added.
