Seattle, home of the new Jim Crow!
“Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” The public school system of the city of Seattle (SPS) has now scheduled a number of “listening sessions” for parents that, while designed to discuss ways to make the schools more welcoming, specifically exclude whites from the sessions, and divide the sessions by race and ethnicity.
SPS and the Seattle Council of Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is hosting seven listening sessions with superintendent Dr. Brent Jones. The remote tour starts on April 19. One of the sessions is for Black families and a second for Native American families. They also recently added meetings specifically for East African and Black Immigrant Families, plus Multigenerational African American Black Families. The district and PTSA believe these race-exclusionary meetings promote equity. But they may represent illegal discrimination.
While there are sessions open to the general public, most of the sessions are segregated and discriminatory. And God forbid Seattle run a listening session just for whites! Why, that would be racism!
In a sense, this story out of Seattle is not news. I have repeatedly reported stories of Seattle government and corporate officials discriminating illegally against whites while unfairly providing their favorite minorities special privileges. Some examples:
- Seattle health officials have banned white staffers from training sessions.
- A local television reporter was fired for reporting accurately a Proud Boys demonstration.
- A white cancer researcher was fired for a harmless Halloween costume she had worn thirteen years previously.
- Another Seattle school board held segregated meetings to pick its new superintendent, designed to give minorities more power in making the decision.
- The city government is running segregated critical race theory classes which proclaim whites as evil and demand that blacks and American Indians be given special privileges.
Seattle is politically controlled entirely by the Democratic Party, so we should not be surprised it is turning that once fair city into a modern version of the racist Confederacy, with everyone segregated by race and ethnicity and the law used to discriminate against some, simply because of their skin color.
However, you have to wonder if black families are really demanding segregated “listening sessions” with the school superintendent. Have they completely forgotten the harm done by such illegal segregation? Do they really want to be a party to such bigotry? If so, they are digging their own grave, as this policy will engender so much hate and anger and resentment in the general population that it will inevitably lead to race war. And minorities are exactly that: minorities. If they encourage a bigoted society the only ones to suffer in the long run will be them. Sooner or later the majority population will cry “Enough!” And when they do there will be no guarantee that the majority will act with decency after being oppressed.
From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.
