Loudon County school district in the States want children to think of race when they are looking at another school member. This is racism at its absolute worse. I have always told my children to accept people as you find them regardless of the colour of their skin, and those same friends are still around even as adults but to state that the children must view their colour and race first is surely racist in its own right?
A teacher at the school in the states asked a pupil what he saw when he was shown a picture of a redheaded girl and a black girl standing back-to-back with the question what is race? The young person gave an answer that I would expect from anybody without a racist bone in their body and said that it was a picture of two people chilling. Two equal people I might add….and not happy with that the overzealous teacher told him it was race.
How dare they change the most wonderful view that this pupil had. He did not see colour; he did not see a race but rather two people who were together and that is how those who are of the right mind would see them.
It is only racist that see skin colour first and then they try to convince you that you are a racist because you don’t sign up to their wokery. The child did nothing wrong and gave a grown-up answer to a teacher who was determined to show that colours are different. Are we not just humans? Human beings? Take away the colour of our skin and we are all the same underneath, and this great kid could see this.
I despair that such zealots and bandwagon jumping individuals are allowed anywhere near children.
Whatever happened to respecting people for who they are and making friends because you like them, and they like you. Why do these leftist permanently offended morons have to point out the colour of the skin? If the child did not see it then why pull him up about it?
It is only racists who see a skin colour…whereas in the real planet….we just see people and well done the pupil for putting the idiot teacher in their place…
“It truly is just two people though, is it not?” the student replies.
After some discussion, the teacher berated the student, calling him “intentionally coy.” Then he told him what he should see – RACE!
The student had asked the teacher if he wanted him to say they were two different races and the teacher said he did.
“Well, at the end of the day, wouldn’t that just be feeding into the problem of looking at race instead of just acknowledging them as two normal people?” the student asks.
“No, it’s not. Because you can’t not look at, you can’t look at the people and not acknowledge that there are racial differences,” the teacher says.
