UGH! Another Left-Wing “task force”, that will find out America, and cops are, wait for it…RAAAAACIST!
“The task force that I formed is supposed to report back to me in 90 days,” President Obama said. “My intention is to, as soon as I get those recommendations, to start implementing them. Some of them I’ll be able to do through executive actions, some of them will require Congressional action, some of them will require action on the part of states and local jurisdictions.”
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, obviously, how we’re thinking about race relations right now has been colored by Ferguson, the [Eric] Garner case in New York, a growing awareness in the broader population of what many communities of color have understood for some time. And that is that, there’s specific instances at least where — where law enforcement doesn’t feel as if it’s being applied in a colorblind fashion.
The task force that I formed is supposed to report back to me in 90 days. Not with a bunch of abstract musings about race relations but some really concrete, practical things that police departments and law enforcement agencies can begin implementing right now to rebuild trust between communities of color and the police department. And my intention is to, as soon as I get those recommendations, to start implementing them. Some of them I’ll be able to do through executive actions, some of them will require Congressional action, some of them will require action on the part of states and local jurisdictions.
Who wants to bet we will get recommendations for more sensitivity training, and other re-education programs for police forces, calls for greater federal control of local police training and policies? And who wants to bet the result of such idiotic schemes by the central planners will result in police being severely hamstrung when dealing with violent thugs? Hell, we might even see a climate created that discourages good men and women from even wanting to become officers. Of course those positions will still be filled with Leftist-approved applicants. Ones that understand “social justice”. Remember when Obama called for a domestic force as powerful as our military?
Naturally, we will see a heavy emphasis on more indoctrination in schools, and even before the first-grade.
In a December 17th editorial in the Washington Post, the three faculty members, led by Jennifer Keys Adair, a professor of early childhood education, argue that children as young as nine-years-old harbor prejudices that can last a lifetime. The professors imply that Officer Darren Wilson—who fatally shot black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.—killed because of his childhood prejudices.
“If we’d like to keep what happened in Ferguson from ever happening again, we have to stop the fear and damaging disconnect many white people have when in the presence of black males,” the academics write in their piece.
One of the ways to prevent this “fear,” they argue, is by “[influencing] young children’s racial attitudes” through “picture books [that are] about the everyday lives of black men so that racial diversity becomes normalized for young children.”
The faculty members caution that these types of books cannot be occasional teaching lessons, but instead should be staples of the classroom because “only a handful will not be enough to normalize positive images of black men.”
But, of course, even these Leftists admit that some damn little White RAAAAACISTS may be beyond their “help”
Unfortunately, the academics bemoan, some white people can be written off as a lost cause.
“As educators, we find too often that white students who don’t have positive, everyday experiences with the black community struggle to discuss or acknowledge their own racial prejudice,” they said.
See, there you go. These “academics” are saying, basically, that all White people, even children are, in fact RAAAAACISTS! And the only way to cure that is to shame them and browbeat them by teaching them that racism is inherent to them. Folks, this is evil.
