Mayor Bloomberg: New high school named for Nelson Mandela will open in Brooklyn
NY Daily News ^ | DECEMBER 6, 2013 | Deborah Hastings

Posted on 12/07/2013 5:09:35 PM PST by EinNYC

The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice will open its doors next September. It will be located at Brooklyn's Boys and Girls High School, where Mandela visited in 1990.

One day after the death of South African icon Nelson Mandela, Mayor Bloomberg announced a new high school will be named for the famed apartheid fighter, it will open on the campus Mandela visited in 1990.

The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice will debut in September 2014 at the Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, where cheering throngs met the newly freed Mandela in 1990 and gave him a hero's welcome in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.

"Equal opportunity and access to education were among the many things Nelson Mandela spent his life fighting for," Bloomberg said Friday.

"President Mandela once said 'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.' Renaming the campus he visited shortly after his release from prison, will forever serve as a reminder that our mandate as public servants is to provide our children with the weapons they need for a successful future and help us build a city of inclusion," he said.

Mandela visited the school as part of whirlwind trip to New York City, where thousands cheered his public appearances. The anti-apartheid leader had recently been freed from a South African prison after serving 27 years. "Nelson Mandela visited this building not long after he was released from prison, and we want to ensure that the special bond between the students and this legendary figure will live forever," said Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott.

"Every time they enter and exit its doors, our students at this new school will be reminded of the values he personified," Walcott said.



TOPICS: Education
KEYWORDS: crazybomber; detroit; highschool; racism; terrorism
This, I guarantee, will be a bastion for anti-white sentiment preaching and pro-commie, even above the current Commie Core Curriculum teachings.

Well let’s hope it doesn’t go the way of all the MLK BLVD’s and MLK schools — avenues of concentrated crime mostly black-on-black.

Will they have an abortion clinic on campus (to honor the beliefs of Mandela)?

My grandfather graduated from Brooklyn Boys HS when it was a school.

How sad.

If the words “social justice” are used that does it for me.

If he’s going that way, he might as well start naming some others Genghis Khan, Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, Pol Pot and so on ...

So V.I. Lenin, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Martin Bormann, Heinrich Himmler and Nikita Khrushchev already have schools named after them?

My mother and many of her siblings graduated from Miami Edison High School back when they named schools after people who contributed to our country.

He could change the name of the city to Mandelaville. It would be logical for the new USSA, aka Obozoland, instead of America.

Will there be wailing from all abortuaries someday like the sounds coming from the World Trade Center? http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/12/03/incredible-and-eerie-video-just-listen-to-the-haunting-sounds-coming-from-the-new-world-trade-center/

Keep in mind I don't have good enough hearing, so I can't really discern sounds either way, but I thought this was interesting.

Yup. Those schools are filled with mostly minority teachers indoctrinating students about “their rights”, “how they’ve been kept down by ‘the man’” (instead of placing the blame on them cutting classes, not doing their work, not studying, or disrupting classes), clubs which train them in social protests or worse, etc. One such high school which might as well have been planned and run by LaRaza treats visitors getting off the elevator to posters such as “Columbus didn’t discover America—he conquered it”, etc. And all this on taxpayer money.

Heh, I wrote this a couple days ago:

"How many Nelson Mandela schools/streets/community organiz... centers will now be named [in the US] in his honor? Is there an app for that?"

<<<

(Google maps shows this place is right near Malcolm X Blvd. so yeah, there's an app for that.)

Will they be teaching the kiddies how to burn people to death using a gasoline-soaked tire burning around their necks...or how to kill and maim by bombing a bus? Enquiring minds want to know.

At least there will be plenty of available parking around the school, a rarity in NYC. No sane person will want to park there, lest their car be made an example.

The day after B. Hussein was elected in 2008 they wanted to name a school after him. Later on I was wondering if it was the same people who gave him the peace prize as well. I was thinking, gee whiz, being a liberal must be great. You can win prizes and be celebrated as an icon before you do absolutely anything.

Sick socialist murdering bastard gets a school named after him. Bet it’ll be on MLK Boulevard (ie the dangerous part of town).

When the world celebrates you you better look out because whatever you’re doing that the world likes, is very, very wrong.

Yep.

They will be totally useless slugs for their entire lives. There will be no education process in existence that will free them of that indoctrination.

Lost forever.

School for Social Justice????

No wonder minorities keep falling behind and will eventually end up escalating a race war which will put them solidly into a controlled under class status not seen since pre-Selma.
