The left spends a considerable amount of money and time trying to figure out why black and brown students do not perform well in our public schools. Having ruled out the possibility that there may be systemic intelligence differences between the races – a concept that cannot even be discussed, much less endorsed – they have to look for ways to blame white people for the problem.
Is it the fault of the (white) school system? Is it a relic of (white) racism in the past? Is it because (white) rich people aren’t putting enough money into the education system? Is it because the (white) textbook writers and test designers aren’t writing for students of color?
And on and on it goes.
So far, despite spending untold billions to find a way to get black and brown kids to succeed in school, nothing has really worked all that well. And so, in this age of being ever more explicit in our national hatred of white Americans, The New York Times has come up with a new avenue ripe for exploration. Perhaps…perhaps the fault lies not with the (white) education system but with (white) parents themselves!
“If you want to understand what’s wrong with our public education system, you have to look at what is arguably the most powerful force in our schools: White parents,” the newspaper said, debuting its new podcast with the catchy title, “Nice White Parents.”
“I think I’ve been looking in the wrong places for what’s broken in our schools,” says podcast host Chana Joffe-Walt. “I think you can’t understand what’s broken if you don’t look here, at one of the most powerful forces shaping public education: white parents.”
The podcast immediately garnered criticism from many prominent anti-woke commentators who see this as just another in a growing sea of racist, anti-white features from the mainstream media.
Eric Weinstein greeted news of the podcast with a quote from Malcolm X: “Who taught you to hate the color of your skin?…Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the souls of your feet? Who taught you to hate your own kind? Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to?”
The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro tweeted, “Disintegrationists are now claiming that if you are a good parent who wants to educate your child in the best possible way, you are inherently racist because you are exacerbating racial inequality. This holds only if you are white.”
But conservative writer Michael Knowles might have noted the disturbing ironies best when he wrote: “Great point, @nytimes. White people are terrible, and all the other people are better, and that’s because their skin is a different color. #antiracism”
Anyway, yeah. The new racism is being a white parent who wants the best for your child.
Do these woke idiots know what kind of monster they’re on the verge of unleashing in this country?
