Interesting "Welcome Back" message from superintendent to all students in mecklenburg county(charlotte, nc)


https://youtu.be/90CL0n_vjyo

It's pretty dang long. I'm actually only at halfway through. A former teacher of mine posted it. It's drawing loads of both praise and criticism. Content relevant to said praise/criticism starts at 5:00

Fuck public schools. If you can afford it, send your kids to a private christian school. Believe it or not, they'll get LESS brainwashing at the bible-thumper school. The other kids are better behaved, classes tend to be smaller and easier to manage, concentrating on schoolwork is easier, and grades will probably be better.

Public schools are as high quality as public county jails. Jail guards are barely employable with minimal criminal records. So are teachers. Teachers care as deeply about excelling at their jobs and helping others as jail guards famously do. I do not apologize to any public school teachers for that broad sweeping statement.

20,000 members. "Justice for Darius Sessions"

Darius Sessions is the dude that shot 5 year old Cannon Hinnant point blank in the head. From the bio in the group:


"Darius Sessoms has been accused of a heinous act that he didn't commit. this is all propaganda from the far right trump propaganda machine to make black people look bad. we can not sit idly by while our president plays fast and loose with the laws. that's why we need to back darius against these outrageous allegations. #blacklivesmatter"

Could be a dumb troll by the author, but nothing surprises me these days..

Looks like a troll page. The page has been around for 6 years and has changed its name many times. See attached picture for a few (I couldn't fit them all in a snip).

https://www.educationviews.org/giant-warning-iowa-state-university-instructor-warns-anti-blm-pro-life-views-are-grounds-for-dismissal/

Quote
An Iowa State University instructor’s syllabus warned students that anti-Black Lives Matter and pro-life viewpoints are “grounds for dismissal.”

Instructor Chloe Clark’s English 250 syllabus includes a “giant warning” advising students that only certain views would be permitted during her classes. “I take this seriously,” she notes at the end of the warning.

“Any instances of othering that you participate in intentionally (racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, sorophobia, transphobia, classism, mocking of mental health issues, body shaming, etc.) in class are grounds for dismissal from the classroom,” Clark wrote in the syllabus, a copy of which was provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

YAF was made aware of Clark’s statement through a whistleblower who submitted the syllabus through YAF’s Campus Bias Tip Line.

“The same goes for any papers/projects,” Clark’s statement continues, “you cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn’t deserve the same basic human rights as you do (i.e. no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter, etc.)”


(Oddly, the term "sorophobia" in her list of banned 'otherings' seems to be a misspelling of "Sororophobia" - which appears in Google as the title of an obscure 1992 feminist book. Appears to be a made up term that nobody else uses.)

80 dollars off, who wouldn't purchase this gem?

"We are dealing with a culture of domination. It is a culture that thrives on the sexualized demonization of Black people. Two examples of this are Ridley Scott's Alien, which comports with the trope of Black women as alien breeders, and Predator […] that riffs on images of Black men as dreadlocked, violent and superhuman."

(Is it even possible to distinguish between Wokeism and satire at this point? Would like to think this is trolling. Who knows?)

For some reason I was thinking that in Predator and Predator 2, the Predator was played by Mario Van Peebles, but apparently he wasn't. It was a different black man called Kevin Peter Hall. He was TAAAAAAAALL. 7 foot 3 according to wikipedia. Because of that, he was also cast as Harry the Sasquatch in the old John Lithgow movie Harry and the Hendersons, one of my favorite movies as a kid. But picking a black guy to play the predator had nothing to do with his race, it was Kevin's enormous imposing frame that got him the part. As far as the "dreadlocks" go, that's not really "hair" on the predators head, so they may resemble dreadlocks, but they aren't. And plenty of white folks have dreadlocks. Chris Barnes, Alanis Morrisette, Keith Morris.

Aliens/Alien were not really created by Ridley Scott. They, or it, was conceived by artist HR Giger a bit before Alien existed. And all his art was quite perverted. It either featured the face of his dead wife, or some surreal dismal melange of things that look like penises and vaginas. The elongated alien heads were originally just big ole fuckin' hard cocks. For the movies, they lost the head of the penis on the back of the aliens head. EXAMPLE. As for "breeding"... ants do it. Are ants God's way of being a fucking piece of shit racist?

But yeah, I can totally see how SOMEONE* would draw those conclusions from Aliens and Predator.

*Someone = a person who is motivated to assign attributes and hidden meanings to something that doesn't necessarily exist and is not readily apparent to most normal observers. If that's who you are, then yes, it makes sense, because you WANT to be offended so you can write a blog about it and get attention and feel like you matter to more people than just the 2 cats in your shitty apartment. Because, like I said, I don't see this person finding fault with the manner in how the OTHER REAL organisms on this planet breed and propagate.
