Verenice Gutierrez picks up on the subtle language of racism every day.
Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year.
What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches? says Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, a diverse school of 500 students in Northeast Portlands Cully neighborhood.
Another way would be to say: Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that? Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.

Throw some “cabrito” into the conversation. Not many Americans eat that. And throw some possum in for the Southern Black and white hillbillies. And be sure and talk about dog meat since obama the muslim eats it.
Our once great nation is going the way of South Africa or Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia. Another four with the “messiah” and we’re toast.
The Earl of Sandwich is English. The English colonization of the developing world resulted in slavery and suppressing the indigeneous peoples of Africa and Asia. Therefore, eating a Sandwich is racist.
This woman is a total idiot.
These ‘educators’ motives are seditious. They should be shunned and ridiculed at every opportunity.
Ketchup and mustard are also racist. Ketchup is red which mocks native Americans and mustard is yellow which mocks the asian. Therefore I demand both condiments be made transparent but that would be racist towards ghosts. So instead let us ban both.
Through intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives, the premise is that if educators can understand their own white privilege, then they can change their teaching practices to boost minority students performance.
Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation to examine a news article and discuss the white privilege it conveys.
I have the white privilege of paying high taxes to support people who won't work and kids whose parents won't make them learn.
So toasting your PB&J is doubly racist?
Maybe they eat dogs.
Instruction manual for this sort of thing:
Culture and race are different. Culture is a human construct — the way a group of people does things. Race has to do with inheritable differences between groups of people (although many also argue that race is also just a human construct).
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are artifacts of a culture. Tacos are artifacts of a culture. Anyone in the world can chose to eat a BP&J sandwich, or a taco. No one can chose to change their race.
Unfortunately, stupidity knows no racial or cultural bounds.
Hey Gutierrez, if you dont like peanut butter and jam, go back to whatever third world hellhole you came from and eat tortillas all day long! I am sick of these immigrants trying to turn America into whatever craphole they ran from. If it was so great “back home”, then why the hell are you here?
So, instead of being a mixing pot - where we all merge our cultures together and work towards a mutual goal, “The American Dream”; we have teachers telling us that we must seek out differences, and focus on things that divide us.
Then, as we focus on those issues that divide us; we must all unite and scream “Racism” against the evil white man.
Or maybe they don’t eat anything at home and would starve if the U.S. taxpayers didn’t feed them at school, lady. Sheesh....just a “thank you” every once in a while from these ingrates would be refreshing.
I will stand by an earlier statement.
Just admit we ARE, racist, sexist, homophobic etc etc etc and they can’t accuse us of it.
Of course BS like this just keeps minds off the REAL problems.
