Black History Month isn’t about teaching kids Black History. Instead of proving America is a country where anybody can succeed, the National Education Association is taking a different path.
Why aren’t they talking about Madam C.J. Walker? She was born in 1867 and had a very difficult life. But she had a vision and became wealthy long before the civil rights movement.
How about Hiram Rhodes Revels, the first Black man elected to Congress in 1870? Maybe the NEA doesn’t want the kids to know the Democrats tried to block him from being seated.
There have been many great Black Americans who could inspire kids of all colors. Success has nothing to do with the color of your skin, it is about believing one can achieve. The NEA’s goals for Black History Month aren’t about inspiring greatness. They want to make sure kids know they are oppressed, inspiring all kids to succeed doesn’t fit the agenda. Successful people are self-reliant, the NEA is creating controllable dependents. An entire generation who think socialism is better than capitalism wasn’t an accident.
The NEA isn’t calling February Black History Month. They renamed it to Black Lives Matter At School. The NEA wants “racial justice”. Source
From the NEA website:
The NEA wants supporters to use the hashtag @BLMAtSchool. This is one of the tweets using that hashtag:
The National Education Association doesn’t exist to advocate for kids. The NEA would rather advocate for “progress” away from anything traditional. We now have a whole generation of victims demanding justice because they’ve been taught they can’t succeed.
Why are teachers handing their money to the NEA? Teachers I know don’t support creating future victims.
Parents need to get their kids out of the public schools. Your kids deserve better.
