Not Everyone Thrilled with Leftist Indoctrination Session at New Trier
New Trier High School has recently come under fire from conservative parents over an upcoming civil rights seminar that some parents say is lacking conservative voices.
Robert Blackwell wrote the post below on Facebook regarding the seminar:
I am a black parent of a child at New Trier
I am offended that Black Lives Matters was invited to speak at the school.
This organization does not represent black people and is not the morale equivalent of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference which was led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This is from the Black Lives Matter website – We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.
Does anyone with half a brain think that destroying the Nuclear family will make black lives better – Government programs have destroyed the black family . Black illegitimacy rates went from under 20% to over 75% in one generation. If you are black, white or Martian if you have a child out of wedlock before you are 21 you are going to be poor.
“We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”
What has this got to do with Police Brutality?
“We are committed to practicing empathy; we engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.”
