Education consultant says white paper may cause racism in young children
examiner.com ^ | September 11, 2011 | Joe Newby

Will white paper make your child racist?

According to Anne O'Connor, an "early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity," it may, reports the UK Telegraph.

Julie Henry writes:

“ Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in "the full range of flesh tones", reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher.

Not only that, O'Connor says witches' traditional black pointy hats should be replaced with pink ones while fairies should be dressed in darker colors.

I know this article is old, but I just came across it on FB. This is the way liberals think. Scary.

And these are the elite. The ones who are so much smarter than the rest of us and who feel entitled to rule our lives.

Susie hands in her “art” lesson.. a sheet of solid BLACK paper. The teacher asks what this lovely drawing is.
“This is my black kitty hiding in the closet after the lights went out during the storm last night.”
Susie gets an “A” for her effort.

I am old enough to remember different colored toilet paper. They (whoever “they” is) decided the dyes were not safe and made us all use white. I had never thought of it, but the government even controls how we wipe our a$$!

We’d all be a helluva lot better off if they’d simply get back to the basics in school. Concentrate on teaching the three R’s instead of indoctrinating our youth with a bunch of Marxist B/S.

Reminds me of when I was a bad student. I used to use a black highlighter to study. One day I discovered that there were yellow ones and it changed my life.

If you used black paper, you would have to use white ink in order to read what you wrote. Wouldn't that also make you racist?

International Test Scores

Poor U.S. Test Results
Tied To Weak Curriculum

Results In short, the tests showed U.S. fourth-graders performing poorly, middle school students worse. and high school students are unable to compete. By the same criteria used to say we were “average” in elementary school, “we appear to be “near the bottom” at the high school level. People have a tendency to think this picture is bleak but it doesn’t apply to their own school. Chances are, even if your school compares well in SAT scores, it will still be a lightweight on an international scale.
1.By the time our students are ready to leave high school - ready to enter higher education and the labor force - they are doing so badly with science they are significantly weaker than their peers in other countries.
2.Our idea of “advanced” is clearly below international standards.
3.There appears to be a consistent weakness in our teaching performance in physical sciences that becomes magnified over the years.

Causes for Failure One would think that with our vastly superior resources and the level of education spending which far exceeds these competitors we would outperform nearly everyone - not so. Dr. Schmidt, who oversees the research effort into the TIMSS results, says the actual cause for the failures appears to be weak math and science curricula in U.S. middle schools.

A more insightful explanation was once proffered by Jean McLaughlin, president of Barry University who confided “The public schools lack focus; instead of concentrating on education, they dabble in social re-engineering”. That assessment was confirmed by the superintendent of the country’s fourth largest school district in Miami-Dade, Florida who said “Half our job is education, and the other half is social work”.

Downward sloping performance confirms John Taylor Gatto’s thesis in his book Dumbing Us Down and his speeches which charge compulsory government education with deliberately producing robots instead of adults who are the best they can be.


Key phrase - “The public schools lack focus; instead of concentrating on education, they dabble in social re-engineering”.

The problem is that liberal “academics” are coming up with some extraordinarily outlandish theories and are being permitted to “research” them. When they come out, the liberal leftmedia lauds it and vaunts it, and the next generation of “academic” has an even more harebrained theory and the cycle goes on.

Each consecutive iteration grows even more deviant from the last and the public is forced to consume it like a force fed toddler. At some point it needs to be regurgitated and stuffed back in their faces as destructive and worthless to humanity.

I teach High School where there is an 84% minority population. I often get that type of question; the “why does everything bad have to be black” My answer is simple. “You all want to be economically successful, right?” “In the world of money, you always want to be IN THE BLACK, never the RED.” Makes my students real happy. (except the Native American ones, sarc)

I heard complaints about calling “black friday”. I explain to them that’s the day a lot of retailers finally go into the black for profit and that is a good thing.
I’ve also heard that the “black hole” is racist.
