Black Lives Matter Curriculum In Schools: More Plantation Politics

When we think of Black Lives Matter in our schools, there are two camps. One camp sees this as “necessary curriculum” and another sees this as indoctrination with subtle influences of Marxist undertones.

I would say most of us here at Victory Girls see it as the latter. Contrary to popular leftist thought that if we don’t see virtue signaling “Black Lives Matter” to our peers and children as necessary, we are obviously racist. We just don’t feel it productive. to call out our differences as Americans as a whole. But that, as we circle back, is also a racist construct. Gone are the days of this:

These kids do not see the color of one another’s skin. They see their best friend. Enter Black Lives Matter events from within school districts. Look no further than Evanston, Illinois where parents were asked to spend time with their children discussing a book on race, written by another white BLM grifter by the name of Anastasia Higginbotham.

The book, entitled Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness. The book instructs a young white reader that he/she doesn’t need to “defend” racism, and it presents him/her with a stark decision. An illustration depicts a devil holding a “contract binding you to whiteness.” It reads:

You get:

✓stolen land

✓stolen riches

✓special favors†


✓to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of COLOR

✓your soul

Sign below:


†Land, riches, and favors may be revoked at any time, for any reason.-Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness

Anastasia Higginbotham prints all of her books on recycled, brown grocery bag paper (figures), and has several other titles, including one called Tell Me About Sex, Grandma. Here is a delightful description of this gem:

Patiently forthcoming with lessons your parents redacted, this necessary conversation stresses consent, sex positivity, and the right to be curious about your body. The dialogue focuses on the dynamics of sex, rather than the mechanics, as Grandma reminds readers that sex is not marriage or reproduction, and doesn’t look the same for everyone. Instead, each person’s sexuality is their very own to discover, explore, and share if they choose.”

It’s okay to go masturbate in the bathroom, Johnny, while sexting your classmate. Grandma will go bake you some cookies. Higginbotham started innocently enough with a book about divorce, an event that impacted her life as a teenager. She lives in (gentrified) Brooklyn and also a contributor to The Huffington Post. Doesn’t get any whiter than this, folks.

But yet, Higginbotham and teachers unions and school districts are shipping Black Lives Matter curriculum highlighting, in pictures, that all white people get stolen land, stolen riches, special favors and to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors. loved ones and all fellow humans of COLOR. What in the actual eff is this?!

But even in the most liberal and progressive of school districts, some parents are opposed to some of the Black Lives Matter rhetoric that is being packaged into this curriculum.

There’s a lot of things to love in this BLM week—such as teaching empathy and tolerance, helping students recognize bias. I know the district, and the people behind this are well intentioned. They want to build a better, more just world. But this curriculum crosses a line that public school educators, regardless of political views, need to respect.

They present every issue with such moral certainty—like there is no other viewpoint. And we’re definitely seeing this in my daughter. She can make the case for defunding the police, but when I tried to explain to her why someone might have a Blue Lives Matter sign, why some families support the police, she wasn’t open to considering that view. She had a blinding certainty that troubled me. She thinks that even raising the question is racist. If she even hears a squeak of criticism of BLM, or of an idea that’s presented as supporting equity, she’s quick to call out racism.”-Conor Fridersdorf, The Atlantic (Interview with parent)

Explain to me how a book, stating white privilege is “to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of COLOR” is designed to advance an agenda to provide tolerance, intersectionality and inclusion during Black Lives Matter week at schools? Has Higginbotham ever walked the halls of a junior high while school is in session (once upon a time when school was in session)? Like, ever?

Black Lives Matter has since dialed back their “about us” description on the website to scale back the Marxist undertones.

It turns out that the agenda of Black Lives Matter, which includes fighting against the prevalence of police — a call taken up by Democratic mayors and city councils around the United States — endangers Black lives far more than the presence of police.

Yet these lives don’t particularly matter for Black Lives Matter advocates, apparently. Black lives matter when we’re talking about police brutality. But Don Lemon has no airtime each night for those who seek to talk about threats to Black lives that dwarf in severity problems related to policing — and that are just as newsworthy. Indeed, the statistical case is unassailable that the daily murder of minority youths in America’s major cities is far more newsworthy than the latest cable panel discussion of ‘white fragility’ or the ‘power of whiteness.'”-Ben Shapiro

Black kids in our inner cities are still suffering greatly while white authors are charging thousands of dollars for appearances and selling books and telling others to “be less white“.

If this is not the “plantation mentality”, than I do not know what is. These authors and the curriculum or indoctrination into this thought, in some cases, is doing nothing but magnifying this. We are superior, you are inferior. We are smarter, you are more “challenged”. We are not pre-disposed to a life of poverty and crime but you are. We have opportunities, you don’t. We can mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of COLOR and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Unfortunately, many will not read between the lines of the recycled paper bag.
