San Diego school district votes for Zimmerman, Martin discussion in school (Pro-Trayvon, naturally)
The Washington Times ^ | July 31, 2013 | Jessica Chasmar

The San Diego Unified School District voted unanimously on Tuesday for teachers to discuss the George Zimmerman case with middle and high school students.

Trustees Richard Barrera and Marne Foster introduced the proposal, saying that opening a dialogue on race relations would allow students to speak honestly on how they identify with Trayvon Martin “and have feelings of fear, anger, and skepticism that they will live in a just society as they prepare for the future,” ABC 10 News reported.

According to the report, the plan, implemented by the district’s Office of Race Human Relations and Advocacy, would “allow students to talk about the world view that prompted George Zimmerman to confront Trayvon Martin; help students develop perspectives and strategies to channel their feelings about Trayvon Martin into positive work for themselves and the larger community; allow students to speak about the “stand your ground” laws; and, help students learn how to deal with being confronted by others in an authoritative manner.”

Many attended Tuesday’s meeting to show support of the plan.

“All of us are mixed,” said Lynwood Taylor Jr., according to Fox 5 San Diego. “There is no pure person in USA. There is no better race than the other. And we have to understand that.”(continued)

That's not a discussion -- that's a brainwashing session.

How about the kids who want to give Zimmerman a standing ovation?

Unless, of course, we are discussing minority scholarships, affirmative action, job quotas, hate crime laws, equal opportunity set asides, etc.

Then whitey gets nuthing...

Its not white guilt, it is communist indoctrination to break the will of the country so that it can be enslaved.

All dialogues on race are one sided.

If whites express their view they are branded as racist, Now this doesn’t bother me because I am old, but for kids in school this is serious business.

IMO Zimmerman did the world a favor. There is no telling what Florida would have spent as this burglar, drug addict, marijuana smoking, fight club, suspended from school,would be killer went through the court system of Florida.

But of course in this dialogue not one of these things will be pointed out. Trayvon will be played as a poor innocent lad who got killed for walking home.

If they aren’t already doing it they will be selling Trayvon franchises soon.

Discuss what? That it’s okay to assault people? That black adolescents can’t get into trouble?

Marne Foster, Universalist non-Racist:

Richard (Ricardo) Barrerra, American Patriot and of course, Universalist non-Racist:

Barrera even has his own reputation: google "Corrupt Barrera". Padre was from Colombia, one of the most corrupt places on Earth.

Good to know this Banana Republic Thug and his race hustler girl friend are trying to re-educate us all.

Schools need to keep that crap out of the ciriculm. They have enough problems teaching English in SanDiego (actually most) schools without injecting race baiting to boot.

Eric Holder’s people consider crime to be a legitimate career path, and armed crime victims to be an OSHA violation.

Isn't that the place with the sleezebag Mayor who won't resign and they can't fire him?

Are the school district members going to vote to talk about him in the next semester? No?

Because the Kenniwick man was suppressed ?

I dont know Im a white gypsy EVERYONE beats up on my people.

If Travon was wearing a suit...He probly would have acted differently appropriately....”unless he already had some purple drank”

Who knows

Zimmerman...Tra-von..I dont really care.The only reason anyone does is...because an instrument of personal self defense and independence was employed.Surprised the riots arnt bigger though.

Antonio Santiago....Thats a REAL story....That story is like a bookmark in the catalog of America’s Debasement.

Rest in Peace little guy

Im gonna remember your name.

All of us are mixed?? Maybe you, little leftist twit, but not me. I’d be just as proud if I was, I’m just not.

School administrators would rather side with the bullies than protect the innocent children.

It’s the bullies who will do vandalism to their vehicles if they don’t cooperate.

The same thing happened when I was in school (although it was 99% white).

Administrators would walk right by a smoke-filled bathroom and do nothing, but then discipline a kid for sitting on a register.

If the reaction to the verdict is this over the top now, just think how bad it would be if the verdict was guilty.

So they are going to teach their teens to behave in ways that might get them shot. And of course take the might no matter how small and multiply it by the number of teens in the school district and you have real actual dead teens. Smart move on the school boards part.

What happens to the kids who don’t want to go along with the program and express the approved opinions? Does the teacher penalize them or does she just wait for Trayvon’s brothers to beat the daylights out of them for being creepy-a** crackers?

After 5 decades I have now come to the realization that I am a black woman trapped inside a white man's body - so I'm both trans-gender and trans-racial. No, I don't want surgery, but I want all the racial an gender preferences our society has to offer, and oh, yeah, I get access to all the ladies' rooms as well.

And if you oppose me it's because you are waging a racist, sexist war on my inner black woman.
