A high school teacher in Norman Oklahoma was recently caught on camera showing a video to his students that was blatantly racist toward white people. The video was shocking enough, that one of the students – who wished to remain anonymous – pulled out her phone and began recording everything.
In the video, you can see a man standing behind a box that says “mistreatment of native americans” on it, and at one point he takes a glob and begins to paint over parts of it with whiteout, supposedly representing what white people do the world.
The video itself is called “Unboxing Mistreatment of Native Americans,” and is essentially what you think it would be. A lot of anti-white ranting in a “fun,” and easily consumable video for young people to watch. You can watch it by following the link here.
After the video was finished, the teacher began to talk to the class. That’s when things got really racist.
“To be white is to be racist, period,” said the teacher.
“Am I racist?” continued the teacher. “And I say yea. I don’t want to be. It’s not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?”KFOR covered the story, so you can see and hear it for yourself.
When confronted, the school gave this response:
“Racism is an important topic that we discuss in our schools. While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended. We regret that the discussion was poorly handled. When the district was notified of this concern it was immediately addressed. We are committed to ensuring inclusiveness in our schools.” – Dr. Joe Siano, superintendent of Norman Public Schools
Notice that the apology wasn’t that racism was preached to the students, but that the teacher didn’t preach racism to his students correctly. The regret wasn’t that the teacher did it, but that the teacher did it such a way that caused this to be a controversy.
This does not make it seem like the school is at all “committed to ensuring inclusiveness” in their schools. It seems like another public school that is attempting to push social justice on children, and create more “us vs them” mentalities amongst the youth.
We have enough of a problem with racism, sexism, and tons of other isms being hocked at Universities, and we’ve seen repeatedly what kind of environment that facilitates. The hatefulness that erupts is something we really don’t need to be pushing on younger crowds, but it would appear there are people out there who feel this kind of unneeded nastiness needs to spread.
I’m wondering if parents of public school children shouldn’t be combing over their school’s curriculum with a fine toothed comb. We know that some school districts are already purposefully hiding things from parents, such as letting trans boy sleep with girls on field trips.
Suddenly, homeschooling is looking far more attractive.
