Social justice in the Palo Alto high school

A friend sent me this assignment, recently given to students at the public high school in Palo Alto, California:

Let’s focus in on a few…

This is a little confusing. Racism explains why “Black and Latino men” are incarcerated at higher rates than other residents of the U.S. But how can racism explain why men are more likely to be incarcerated than people who identify with the other 73 genders recognized by Science?

What would happen to a student who cited Elizabeth Warren as an example?

This is the one that upsets me. Our house is 3 miles from the climate change-enhanced ocean, yet we are redlined by State Farm and excluded from homeowners insurance.

  1. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the black community to our society. Their peaceful
    and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their
    exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture.
    Their child-rearing practices and skills mixed with their unparalleled work
    ethic are second to none. Their rational and logical thought toward
    circumstances coupled with their innate capability to de-escalate situations is
    to be envied and coveted. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our
    schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a
    people. Real estate values are fueled by the mix of the black communities in an
    area due to the caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example
    of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self-improvement, hard
    work, and self-reliant nature. Without their industrious and creative drive,
    we would be poorer as a nation.

  2. I understood the true nature of the Democrat-controlled public education (about 20 years ago…) when my step-daughter brought home school newspaper from Palo Alto High.

    The front page was completely filled with the very familiar visage of Vladimir Lenin. The article accompanying it was basically a recruiting pamplet for the Communist Club.

  3. By that definition many of the peoples, for example with Hellenistic or Jewish backgrounds, are engaged in cultural appropriation when wearing traditional business suits with jackets and pants and not original robes.
    Also bot main political parties in the US are culturally appropriating, one Greeks and the other Romans. History shows that current US political system is not what Greeks meant by democracy nor what Romans meant by republic.
