Colorado state Senator Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) says that democracy in our republic is racist. That folks who gathered signatures to recall her might be ticked off because of her gun-grabbing hysteria doesn't enter the equation, as far as she's concerned:
“I know it’s partially about me being a Latina and being in this position of authority,” said Giron.
Way to play the race card, Hon! There's just one tiny, leetle problem with it: none of the other four hispanics in the Colorado Legislature are facing recall - but then, none of them voted for gun-grabbing measures like you did.
But not to be outdone in the display of race cards, cash-strapped Porkland Public Skulez has spent over half a million dollars on providing brainwashing propaganda guidance to teachers and administrators, paying all that ash to one company:
Almost all Portland school leaders have gone through “Coaching for Educational Equity,” a week-long seminar on race that’s conducted by the Pacific Educational Group.
The Pacific Educational Group is the brainchild of Glenn Singleton, whose mission is to enlighten educators about how public schools promote “white culture” and “white privilege.”
In addition to teaching that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist, PEG trains educators to view “rugged individualism,” “adherence to rigid time schedules,” and the belief that “hard work is the key to success” as traits of the dominant white culture.
PEG teaches that minority cultures value “color group collectivism,” “interdependence,” group success, shared property, learning through social relationships, and making life choices based on “what will be best for the family or group.”
Upon receiving this revelation from PEG, educators are encouraged to create culturally sensitive lesson plans that make use of “group homework preparation,” “cooperative projects,” and “choral reading.”
So how's all that working out? Well, Dr.Verenice Gutierrez, who as principal at Porkland's Harvey Scott School, and who believes that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches symbolize racism, heads an institution that ranks among the lowest 15% in the state, in terms of overall academic performance - although it's probably racist to point that out.
Gosh, it almost makes you wonder if they might not need to spend less time and money on racism, and a little more on basics. PPS, by the way, got a huge bond measure passed by the gullible Porkland voters during the last election because It's For The Children™. Porkland voters always fall for that line.
