One slide shown during the class, illustrating that according to
critical race theory, the student’s black half is pure goodness,
even as his white half is the devil incarnate.
They’re coming for you next: A Las Vegas high school student, born from the marriage of a white man and black woman, was given a failing grade because he would not label his white half as evil and racist.
William Clark received a failing grade in his Sociology of Change class after he refused to categorize and label his racial, religious and sexual identities, according to a press release from Schoolhouserights.org, which supports civil rights litigation in defense of students’ freedom of conscience in public education.
According to a lawsuit filed by his mother, Gabrielle Clark, in December 2020, William is described as having ‘green eyes and blondish hair’ and ‘generally regarded as white by his peers’. His mother is black and his deceased father was white, according to court documents.
During the class, William was reportedly asked to publicly reveal his race, gender, religious and sexual identities and “then attach derogatory labels to those identities. … Students were then asked to ‘undo and unlearn’ their ‘beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that stem from oppression,”‘ the statement says.
Now, according to his mother, Gabrielle, who sued his school Democracy Preparatory Academy at Agassi Campus in Las Vegas, they’re unsure if he’ll be able to graduate after being handed a failing grade.
…Others named in the lawsuit include, the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority, the civics teacher, several school administrators, the school’s board of directors and the school’s Manhattan-based charter management organization, Democracy Prep Public Schools.
At first, as I read this story I wondered how insane it was and how it must be at the very limit of stupidity. Then I blinked and woke up, knowing that things are almost certainly going to get even more insane and stupid, if people don’t start challenging at every opportunity these bullies and racist thugs.
Consider for example the class itself. It is designed expressly to foster a bigoted hatred of whites, merely because of their skin color. In the America that once existed a mere decade or so ago, any course material that advocated such hatred would have been thrown in the trash heap instantly, and its perpetrators immediately fired for their bigotry. Now, this material is endorsed by administrators and is being forced on everyone.
Then there is the particular circumstances of this story. The student himself proves the absurdity of race hatred. He belongs to neither race. His future will be determined entirely by what he does, if only we let him alone and let him do it. In a sane world his teachers would have looked at him and realized their demands upon him were garbage and dropped the subject. Instead, they brainlessly marched on, demanding he rip himself apart in an illogical display of madness.
Though I applaud the decision of the boy’s mother to sue the school, the teacher, and the organization that is bringing this crap into the classroom, we must note that she is only suing for her son. The rest of the student body, especially its white students, will continue to be harassed and slandered and subjected to this hate by these school officials.
The question once again must be asked: Where are the state’s legislators? Do they really support this? And where are the citizens of Nevada? Are they so cowed and timid that they are willing to let their kids be subjected to this evil?
