Let me begin this post by making it perfectly clear that I do believe that there are bad cops out there. Contrary to what some might believe, the bad cops come in every race, color and creed. And while they may be out there, I do not believe that they are flooding the system and out looking for black kids to kill. That is just being intellectually dishonest.
I listened with great interest as Megyn Kelly, on her podcast, described how she was going to be pulling her children out of the NYC schools because even for her, the liberal ideology and indoctrination of her children was out of control. First, let me say that this liberal indoctrination is just not isolated to big city schools. I know because I worked in a suburban high school located about 30 miles north NYC and judging by what she described, the school I worked in was just as bad. Students and teachers wearing BLM shirts while other student were “counseled” if they mentioned the word Trump or the phrase “Make America Great Again.” And please, if you were a teacher who didn’t toe the line of the liberal left, you were immediately branded, yep, you guessed it, a racist. Trans kids that would literally threaten the administration if a teacher or classmate used the wrong pronoun in referring to them.
In her podcast she mentions a blog post that was circulated amongst the teachers of her sons school from a woman named Nahliah Webber, the Executive Director of the Orleans Public Education Network. In the blog post Ms. Webber says that, “Black children are suspended, detained, “demerited” and isolated in schools for trivial things every day and that there’s a killer cop sitting in every school where White children learn.” She further opines that White people, “…happily believe their all-White spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against Black bodies to keep those spaces white.” Wow…
It is apparent to me that Ms. Webber holds some deep rooted hatred against white people. Not all white people are out to kill black men just the same that all black men are not criminals. Her contemptuous and incredibly misguided attitude and attacks are further shown as she tells her readers, “Simply, this time after you take off your Black Lives Matter t-shirt and recycle your protest signs, don’t go back into Black spaces with your usual bullshit. This time if you really want to make a difference in Black lives—and not have to protest this shit again—go reform white kids.”
Reform White kids? Seriously? Let me make myself perfectly clear on this when I say to Ms. Webber that this is not a one way street. Where are the parents teaching their children manners and to have respect for authority? In just about every case where a black man was killed by a police office, and after the misguided hysteria dies down, evidence almost always surfaces that shows the not so innocent victim acting the fool and actively resisting arrest and attacking officers.
For Ms. Webber and others of her ilk, it comes from a place of deep and ingrained ignorance that she can put this type of drivel on a public forum. It is no wonder that when nonsense like this is introduced and taught in our schools, should we expect anything less than people wanting to leave NYC? I can’t believe that everyone is falling for this crap.
The bottom line is this: Instead of wasting so much time teaching black youth that all white people are bad, especially police officers, sit your kids down and tell them if they are stopped by the police, don’t argue with them, follow all of their commands, and just do what they say. If you don’t agree with what they are doing, fight it in the courts, not on the street. This advice will undoubtedly save lives.
Second, tell your groups, most specifically BLM and ANTIFA, that if they feel the need to protest, first make sure that they are protesting for the right reason. Not some trumped up charge that video evidence has already disproved. It makes you look stupid.
Lastly Ms. Webber, instead of going after statistical anomalies, put your resources in cities like Chicago where weekly killings of blacks, by other blacks, has never been higher. Worry more about black on black crime instead of demonizing whites and police officers.
For one thing, you might get more respect, and second, people will take you more seriously.
Ms. Webber also makes some wildly inappropriate assumptions about whites and white culture.
- Where’s the urgency for school reform for White kids being indoctrinated in Black death and protected from the consequences?
- Where are the government-sponsored reports looking into how White mothers are raising culturally deprived children who think Black death is okay?
- Where are the national conferences, white papers and policy positions on the pathology of Whiteness in schools and how it leaves White children behind as adults?
- Why isn’t Bill Gates throwing billions into school programs teaching White kids how not to grow up racist and choke out Black life?
In my view, Ms. Webber is an angry woman with extremely misdirected priorities. She needs to do more to focus on the real issues of the black community instead of fanning the flames of racial divide and hatred. It’s not bad enough that our schools let liberals run our schools yet censor any type of conservative thought, but the fact that she totally ignores the failings in cities like NY and Chicago is inexcusable.
But then again, if she wasn’t a race hustler, what would she be doing for a living?
