Shock: Racist Seattle Public School Administrator States That That Blacks Lack Self-Reliance, Capacity For Planning For The Future, And Ability To Speak Gramatical English

Further weight adding to my current distaste for conservativism -- liberals, whatever their faults, do not preach that blacks are basically incapable of tasks whites take for granted.

Wait-- what's that? This is indeed liberals sending high school students to a conference that teaches that blacks lack self-reliance, planning skills, and the ability to properly speak English?

Oh. That changes things. I guess it's all for the good, then. Liberals know best.

Dr Caprice Hollins, the Director of Equity, Race & Learning Support for Seattle’s public schools, has previously criticised individualism, long-term planning (or “future time orientation”) and the speaking of grammatical English as “white values.” The expectation among teachers that all students should be responsible individuals and meet certain linguistic and organisational standards is, according to Dr Hollins, a form of “cultural racism.”

David Thompson notes this in discussing a LaShawn Barber post about Seattle high schoolers being sent to a "white privilege" conference.

Parents ought to be ashamed for allowing bureaucrats to politicize black underachievement and blame whites instead of erecting a mirror in front of so-called underprivileged minorities. In an op-ed in The Seattle Times, Seattle writer and blogger Matt Rosenberg noted that the white privilege conference has little, if anything, to do with helping black students improve academically. They’ll be well-equipped, however, in useless, politically correct finger-pointing. “What we have here,” writes Rosenberg, “is an institutional evasion of personal responsibility.”

I guess the trick is that pretty much you can deride blacks as viciously as you like -- hitting all the stereotypes like "Colored People's Time" and all that -- so long as you throw in the saving asterisk at the end: *But it's all white people's fault.
