New Common Core Kid’s Book Depicts White Racists Who Wouldn’t Vote For Obama
The Libertarian Republic ^ | 4/14/14 | Austin Petersen

Posted on 04/14/2014 3:19:10 PM PDT by Jean S

A children’s book that is part of the Common Core curriculum portrays white voters as racists who would never vote for Obama for president. The book called, “Barack Obama,” says: “Some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president,” the book reads. This is in spite of the fact that millions of whites voted for the sitting president. Follow TLR on Google+

Common Core’s implementation has gotten off to a rocky start. States like Indiana have opted out of the unified educational standards, with Governor Mike Pence signing legislation that removed the state from required participation. Still, the law doesn’t fully prohibit some parts of Common Core from being implemented.

In New York, the first state that implemented the guidelines, a girl was suspended from school after she told classmates that they were able to opt out of the Common Core English test. She was suspended for insubordination for two days after the incident. Students at another school were rewarded with ice cream if they took the test, and students who refused to take it were punished by having their ice cream withheld.

Common Core State Standards will reportedly have little to no impact on student achievement according to a study published by the Brookings Institution. The report concluded that it would take 24 years to achieve a noticeable improvement, making it harder to understand why the federal government is pushing so desperately for the unified educational standards.

Common Core has been creating strange bedfellows coalitions across the United States, with conservative seeing it as obtrusive federal overreach and liberal activists seeing it as an attack on teacher’s independence. Left/Right grassroots groups have been rallying to fight back against the unified standards for different reasons, but with the same goal of decreasing the federal government’s ability to restrict the rights of teachers, students and parents.

In New York recently, parents and teachers held a rally in support of students opting out of the statewide Common Core English exams.

“Common Core must be stopped or we will lose the next generation to the collective.”

That’s the whole purpose of Common Core.

I think it’s up to 17 states that have outright thrown it out, and several put it on hold.
Even teachers unions are protesting.

True. And voting FOR Obama because he is black is just as racist. Blacks voted for him at levels approaching 100%. So which group is the most racist?

You are correct.

At its best, the current public school is anachronistic but it is far from "at its best".

We now have generations that have passed through the public education system and the degradation of intellectual capabilities is staggering.

The ignorant teaching the ignorant is not a plan for success.

Idiocracy is Prophesy!

Tens of millions more whites voted for The Won than blacks voted for Romney or Bush. Even if you look at percentages, a far greater percentage of whites voted for mediocrity (well, SLIGHTLY more mediocrity than Willard) than the percentage of blacks who voted for Romney or W (or any other R). Are all those blacks waycissst or something?

Thank you!

I refer to the system as the public church because of the religious doctrines they teach. That is really bad all by itself but then add the complete lack of discipline and the fact that they are the first to completely submit to the racist card and, ok I have dozens of problems with the public school system.

“White Racists Who Wouldn’t Vote for Obama”

Didn’t all those old-time Democrats die a generation ago?

There was one still around, Frazier Glenn Cross comes to mind. The man is reported to be a former “Grand Dragon” of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

And no matter what Hank Aaron says (and Hank is a fine person in just about every other aspect), the Republicans in no way support or have any part in the KKK. It was always a Democrat “shock troop” operation, even putting their clout into national Democrat conventions, to the point where Robert Byrd could get elected to the Senate, and remain there until death, with nary a murmur from the Democrat National Committee.

Off topic but a point that needs to be made in terms for how we view each other and the supposed “progress” we make as a society. I put on ESPN Radio today for a few minutes. I don't generally listen to sports talk radio but came across a host who said that for black NBA players, it is considered (I forget the exact wording used) bad to be dunked on by “a white guy,” he said he knew this to be true and even mentioned Euro white players specifically. He also claimed that he saw more black-on-white skirmishes in the last two years than at any other point. If this is true, the NBA should investigate.

A simple comma after sure, to indicate a pause.

Isn't it obvious? Don't you expect at least correct grammar from your kid's curriculum?

I am sorry to see the only thing you got out of this article was a missing comma.

My son, who has been fighting Common Core in Wisconsin for the last year, sent me this and I thought it was important enough to post.

There are only two sure wauys of getting out of common core.

1. Get rid of the department of education. Caution, presidential candidates lie about doing this, ie Reagan.

2. Secede, only states have to obey the doe, free nations do not have to.

I have seen a PSA over the last few days claiming that Common Core is being misrepresented. There is a huge push on for it which immediately tells me that it is more garbage from the left.

I am thankful my kids are out of school and had me at home day in and day out when they were to set them straight about the junk their textbooks were pushing.

Public school is the enemy of a free society.

That is NOT the only thing I got out of it. The political bent of it i.e. bashing of white Americans, was the main thing. But that a curriculum so wanting in proper English — no doubt pushed by the federal Department of EDUCATION — is being shoved on schools is by itself an outrage.

The Home School Legal Defense Association is a good place to start for parents wanting to GET AWAY from public schools.

Homeschooling is not as difficult as some think.

We in Florida are lucky to have some very good state laws regarding homeschooling.

But HSLDA is an organization that can help you NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE!

Parents do not have to be teachers, parents instead are DIRECTING THE EDUCATION of their children.

Alpha Omega Press (AOP) is a curriculum provider that has online curriculums (as well as standard book and paper ones) through high school. Homeschool groups in communities often have co-ops that have teachers WITH teaching certificates that provide education--our child took freshman biology through such a program. "Teaching Textbooks" is a computer based mathematics program that teaches math all the way through pre-calculus and offers placement tests for your kid. EVERY PROBLEM is explained. It is outstanding.

All I am saying is homeschool allows YOU to be in control of YOUR kid's education. If s/he is having difficulties on one subject, you know to concentrate. If s/he is exceedingly GOOD at something, no need to hold them back "at their grade level". I know the schools SAY they will help your kid work at a "challenging" level. Bunk.

Kids in schools, sometimes at NO fault of the teachers, are treated like cattle. Sardines. Drones.

Not with homeschool. Your kid gets an education designed for HIM.

Is it expensive? Sure can be, but not when you consider the investment in a little one's future. Plus, you can often find GREAT DEALS on ebay, at homeschool conventions, the (gasp) LIBRARY....

But the place to start is HSLDA.org.

She is someone who is in favor of Common Core. I had a somewhat acrimonious exchange with her. I don’t think her account has been terminated, nor should it have been, IMO. That is simply her opinion, that Common Core is a good thing and we are wrong for opposing it. And, in her view, not just wrong, but irrationally wrong.

That person may be a conservative in some respects, and claims to be against “big government”, but when it something that affects her affairs directly as Common Core does, that is where she was all for big government.

Where she and I differed was when she painted all Freepers as the equivalent of General Jack Ripper (From “Dr. Strangelove”) because many of us are against big, bloated government. She couldn’t understand why we view Common Core as more of the same, which it IS.

There are trolls on the education threads who are posing as “conservatives”, yet their arguments defending the government's single-payer schools sound just like whiny communists ( oops! “liberals”) . These government school defending arguments are full of personal attack, psychological mind reading, red herrings, non-sequiturs and strawmen.

Common Core is merely icing on a poop cake.

Our government schools are a single-payer, compulsory-use, SOCIALIST entitlement! Nothing good can come from that. It only took one to three generations of government SOCIALIST schooling to give the nation Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt. And....with each generation it gets worse.

And...Nearly every teacher in this nation was trained by **godless** Marxists in Marxist run colleges of education.

So!.....While conservatives run around like flies with their wings pulled off chasing the political or educational issue of the day ( Common Core is just the latest) , the Communists LAUGH! ( They have the kids.)

Our nation is DOOMED unless these government SOCIALIST schools are completely shut down and conservatives work like crazy to see that every child in this nation has access to a conservative education.

( Yeah! I am shouting, jumping up and down, and having a fit. I am both alarmed and exasperated with conservatives who neither see the problem or even understand that government schools are SOCIALIST SINGLE PAYER SCHOOLS and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN!)

Common Core is more a symptom than a problem. The problem is all the conservatives in the country that send their kids to PUBLIC SCHOOLS expecting better. Thankfully, people on this site know what happens to those kids.

I guess they don’t teach what painting groups of people with a broad brush is anymore. So they’re telling us that none of us would have voted for Condoleezza Rice or Herman Cain ( before his fall ) if given the option. Nice to know that not only has Common Core decided to ignore history but they now also speak for us.

None of us will probably be able to ever vote for a black conservative as we’ll never get the choice. The MSM will start on a campaign of personal destruction the moment one announces a run every time.
