Chicago Public Schools are finally reopening for full in-person instruction for the 2022-23 school year. You’d think the curriculum would be heavy on catching the little crumb-crunchers up on all that lost learning during Covid. But nooo. The big push is on gender ideology and … you guessed it … Critical Race Theory.

 

Initiatives for the New School Year in Chicago

Pedro Martinez, the Chief Executive Officer for the Chicago Public Schools, sent out a welcome back to school letter to parents, (available on the CPS website). Martinez promises there will be an increase in number of teachers, reduction of class size, and “safe, healthy learning environments amid the continued threat of COVID-19” (so if the teachers union demands more lockdowns, CPS will comply, one assumes).

Plus, CPS will also grow the number of counselors and social workers, along with a “Social Emotional Curriculum.”

Let’s break this down, shall we?

Those counselors — might they include “restorative justice coordinators?” The successful applicant for that position is expected to attend training in “restorative justice, cultural competency, anti-racism, trauma responsiveness, circle practice, and related topics.”

As for the “Social Emotional Curriculum:” that includes teaching about body parts and “different family structures” in kindergarten. By fifth grade they’re learning about HIV, sexual orientation, and contraception. Then by sixth grade the Social Emotion Curriculum delves into “gender identity, gender expression, and sex assigned at birth.”

Because all of this is more important than actual academics in a school district that’s floundering.

 

Defense of Looting and Mayhem

Chicago Public Schools is also promoting a video on its website that defends the looting and rioting which went on in the name of George Floyd.

Originally uploaded to YouTube in the summer of 2020, during riot season, it features black activist Kimberly Jones who explains away the looting and violence. Urban blacks riot, she maintains, because …

” … the financial gap between poor blacks and the rest of the world is at such a distance that people feel like their only hope and only opportunity to get some of the things that we flaunt and flash in front of them all the time is to walk through a broken glass window and get it.”

Oh, you mean like Nikes and Gucci handbags, so necessary to one’s very existence?

But they feel “hopeless,” because of 400 years of oppression. You gotta understand the struggle.

“We must never forget that economics was the reason that black people were brought to this country. We came to do the agricultural work in the south and the textile work in the north. You understand that? That’s what we came to do.”

So no white person ever worked in the fields or in factories? Like my great-grandfather, who came from Lithuania to work in the steel mills in Chicago? He died in a gruesome mill accident. Yes, white people died in factories, too, sometimes in terrible ways.

Jones continued on her tirade, screaming about “f*ck” this and “f*ck” that, along with the battle cry of “burn this b*tch to the ground.”

Yeah, but then where would y’all loot?

Not only does the Chicago Public Schools host this racist claptrap on its website, but the site also includes a number of “equality tools” in its library. These include a pamphlet on “white supremacy culture,” training on “implicit bias,” and book recommendations, which include writings of Ibram X. Kendi.

Because that’s how poor kids in Chicago will learn to be successful, right?

 

Chicago Schools Should Answer to This

Instead of blaming white people for All the Bad Things, and excusing bad behavior, perhaps the intellectuals at the Chicago Public Schools should consider this:

  • Why are black people killing each other in Chicago? According to city crime statistics, 78% of homicide victims are black. Most of these involve shootings, and occur in largely poor black neighborhoods. It ain’t Wypipo coming into the ‘hoods to shoot black folks. It’s the gangs who are killing each other.

 

  • What does the CPS say about one of their own children — a nine-year-old girl — getting snatched outside a grocery store? The black perpetrator also solicited a 13-year-old girl and her mother to have a three-way sexual tryst. Apparently this creep didn’t participate in CPS’s Social Emotional curriculum.

 

  • Or the pickpockets who prowl CTA trains, stealing wallets from women passengers. Oh, wait, let me guess — they’re feeling “hopeless” because of oppression.

Then there are carjackings in the Windy City. And fatal stabbings. And men who push victims off CTA platforms.

How is all the craptastic racist curriculum foisted by the Chicago Public Schools going to fix this? How does garbage like “Social Emotional” curriculum, or learning about gender identity, or watching an ignorant woman scream her excuses about why people in her “community” should be allowed to loot and riot help kids succeed in life?

It doesn’t, of course. Chicago is a city which has been close to my heart since my childhood. But it’s dying. And the garbage that the Chicago Public Schools are teaching their children won’t cure the rot taking over the city.

    This rot isn’t just happening in Chicago schools. It’s all over the country. This link is about a high school in Denver. https://www.9news.com/article/news/education/south-high-school-video/73-b6bae831-ad7f-4da2-84cc-1e4c0044682c

    Want to bet someone in Chicago public schools will promote something similar very soon?

    Looting is fun until somebody gets shot. When the legal system is seen not to function, other control mechanisms will develop, and they will far less desirable than a functioning legal system. Read “The Oxbow Incident” or rent the movie. Progressives seem determined to regress us in so many ways.

    the continued threat of COVID-19
    Which was never a threat to the kids, anyway. So, teachers lying about science to our kids? Sure, that doesn’t say anything about their educational abilities, at all….

    the financial gap between poor blacks and the rest of the world is at such a distance
    Yes, but in the direction you’re claiming. Blacks in America are significantly richer as a whole, and even from the very lowest rung, than the vast amount of people in our world. Period. They’re claiming grievance really against the people who are just above them in the “Way rich” section.

    people feel like their only hope and only opportunity to get some of the things
    Because you people keep telling them that’s true. Because you people keep squashing their hope and their opportunities. Because folks like the Chicago schools keep telling them it IS hopeless.
    “Oh, we have to understand why they’re doing it!” No we don’t. They need to stop doing it. Period.
    (I only made it 2 minutes through the video. Ugh.)

    the reason that black people were brought to this country
    Yes, and we fought a war over that, in which lots of white people died. Now, get over it.
    Kim, one likely difference between your great-grandfather and the African slaves is that your great-grandfather came willingly. (Though, there were a great many Scots-Irish who were not willing, except to escape execution.)

    It ain’t Wypipo coming into the ‘hoods
    And they complain when white people do come into the ‘hoods to enforce the law and try and protect those victims. So, they’re on their own. See how that works? Of course, it’s not just the blacks “doing it to themselves”, it’s also the white rich liberals doing it to them and telling them it’s for their good. Just like any abuser.

    Then there are…
    Because they have been inured into a might-is-right culture built on bogus grievance instead of the enlightenment culture that built our society. You can argue that the Enlightenment is therefore White and we’re forcing you intoblah, blah, blah…. But when it comes down to it, this society was BUILT on the Enlightenment, and if you want something different, you should probably go elsewhere and build it. Tearing down this one just makes you an enemy of our society. And none of your culture has ever succeeded in accomplishing what we have (and that ‘we’ is not just whites).

    So, learn the values and principles that built this country (not the Prog crap tearing it down) and use them to make something of yourself. Or go away and live in your ghettos and suffer from your own actions. Or go away entirely. Those are the only three options I will accept.

      Sheesh. FIFM.

      It’s true that he came willingly. However, she was also carping about working in fields and factories — like only black people had those jobs. That was the lot in life of most Americans prior to at least the 21st century, maybe the latter half of the 20th.

      (Though, there were a great many Scots-Irish who were not willing, except to escape execution.)

      Speaking of which, allow me to indulge in another family account.

      On my father’s paternal side, there was an indentured servant from Scotland who was brought to Massachusetts in the 1600’s. He had been taken prisoner of war by the English at the 1650 Battle of Dunbar. Those POWs who survived the forced march into England were placed on ships and sent to either Massachusetts, Virginia, or the Caribbean. I learned that he never returned to Scotland.

      On the other hand — because this ancestor was forced to go to the colonies, that began a line of my family living in the US. IIRC, the late Walter Williams said somewhat of the same thing about the slave trade: that generations of blacks are now living in the US instead of sub-Saharan Africa. But of course, that’s outrageous and racist, blah, blah, blah.

      Now, where’s my reparations …?

      As always, good to hear from you, GWB.

      • GWB says:

        maybe the latter half of the 20th
        Probably the last quarter of the 20th.

        Funny how the race-monger Progressives can’t stop living in the past, while the rest of Progressivism says there’s no such thing and promotes Year Zero.

    It’s simple – they hate blacks
