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.

White paper wants to own guns too....
Green boards with yellow chalk.
Can’t stand the white. I need the yellow legal pad. :-)
Liberalism is a mental illness.
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.
I suppose twits like this see racism in the color of snow as well.
We drew on manila paper, back in the day. As an adult, shouldn’t I favor filing more often than I do?
They’ve been using “black” boards for years. Guess black can be racist too?
So what do they do about Blackboards?
f7u12 quandary, isn’t it?
The world is going insane.
...early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity....
One of the reasons I do not mind the culture falling apart.
Thanks for posting, we have to expose this cr*p.
But if i start drawing on black paper, won’t that make me a racist, too? :P
I was thinking it was a day late.
How dare you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
So lets use black paper.....you’ll have to use a WHITE pencil though. I guess clouds are bad too?
On the other hand, black ink on black paper will give Holder’s and Obama’s people exactly the right knowledge level.
I saw a cloud today.. Am I racist now? Oh yeah, and that seagull poop on the pavement.. Racist again? Damn!
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.
Correction...it IS insane.
But did you look at clouds from both sides now?
No, but you should have a thing for Filipinas. :)
Well, there are black clouds, but they’re considered a bad sign. Racism is everywhere!
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.
This so-called ‘educator’ should have hauled off in the old Woody Woodpecker wagon a long time ago.
Ironically, he published it as a white paper.
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.
That actually made me LOL.
“I need the yellow legal pad. :-)”
Yellow paper makes my eyes go all squinty.
(Yes, joking. Appropriate because this article is so stupid.)
The ink is black
The page is white
Together we learn to read and write
The child is black
The child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
The beautiful sight
Education consultants should be black and blue.
I use Green Staedtler engineering paper for just about everything. Does that make me a Martian Supremacist?
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)
Here’s the series it comes from, I guess:
You have to subscribe to read the articles, but just the titles alone should arch some eyebrows.
The first time I saw a black man, my dad said I kept staring at him, and then asked. “how did he get so rotton?”. I was thinking about rotton bananas turning black LOL.
Ebony and Ivory
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.
Yeah, but ain't it just like "The Man" to make the black keys shorter than the white ones.
