Milwaukee K-12 teachers offered college credit to ‘heal’ their ‘racism’



Quote:
The Milwaukee Teachers Education Association is distributing a flyer to its members, encouraging them to attend a series of “Healing Racism Workshops.”

Held over eight Wednesdays at the First Unitarian Society, the sessions will allow educators to receive graduate school credit through Madison’s Edgewood College.

In most school districts, more graduate school credits equate to more pay for teachers.

The flyer reads:

“We have all ‘been assigned a race by America’s pervasive socialization process.’ (Learning To Be White, Thandeka) This racial conditioning permeates the fabric of our inter-personal and inter-group relations, taking little account of laws and statutes, and reaching deep into the hearts and minds of individuals.

“In these forums we seek to create an environment in which we can address each other in a spirit of openness, free of blame or victimization.”

Not buying into this one. It sounds more to me like any other graduate symposium type class. Academics are for some people and not for others.

I would enjoy sitting in on a class like this.

Those Kumbayahs may quickly begin to do what any normal dog does, with barking at the moon being part of it.

Why don't you take a kumbayah and shove it straight up your baboon's arse? This schtick is getting a little old.

Do you have anything to say about the thread topic?

Oh! I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to ignore your post, but now that I see it, I have to break the news to you that you are not my baboon. Sorry.

As a matter of fact I do have something to say about the thread. The Kumbayahs can shove their "white guilt" up their baboon's asses, yours included.

I'm sorry. I really do cherish our talks.

How ironic; I remember my mom telling me about how her grandfather's barn had hiding places for the runaway slaves (so called "underground railroad.") My ancestors were abolitionists. No doubt they would have been hanged if caught.
