Progressive or Parody? Supposed Progressive Dallas Group Asks White Libs to Keep Their Kids Out of Ivy League Schools
“Talk is not enough. Commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice.”
A group called ‘Dallas Justice Now’ is asking wealthy, white liberals not to send their children to Ivy League schools in order to make room for students of color.
It’s genuinely difficult to tell if this is real or a parody of virtue-signaling progressives.
I’m dead right now. 😂Highland Park is one of the richest areas in Texas. These Democrat parents would walk across hot coals & plan a murder for the chance their kids go to an Ivy League or other top schools. Then they get this from a Black Lives Matter Organization. 😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/WlmxNRiPco

The Dallas Observer reported the flyer is fake along with the group. No one could find a lot of information about Dallas Justice Now or those in charge of it. It found the website traces back to the PR firm Arena, which has connections to the right and Republicans.
When something seems too perfect to be true it most likely is fake. The language is too perfect. The words they use are too perfect. The structure is too perfect.

Racist Dallas Group Demands Rich, White, BLM-Supporting Democrats Keep Their Kids Out Of Ivy Leagues
A Dallas-based group that prides itself on defunding the police and labeling people who don’t comply with their “equity” initiatives as “racists” is asking “wealthy white liberals” in the city to pledge to keep their children from applying to and attending Ivy League and U.S. News & World Report Top 50 schools.
“Talk is not enough. Commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice. Open up spaces for Black and LatinX communities by refusing to send your kids to Ivy League and US News & World Report Top 50 schools and encourage friends, neighbors, and family members to do the same,” the “racial justice” organization Dallas Justice Now demands on its website. “Imagine if those hundreds of thousands of spots at these institutions were occupied only by marginalized communities. Imagine the opportunities. We can achieve true equity within our lifetimes but only if white folks are willing to sacrifice their privileges.”
The pledge, which was directed toward residents in Dallas’ richest neighborhood, asks white people not only to acknowledge their “privilege” and “whiteness,” but also to “make sacrifices for the purpose of correcting hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated upon people of color.”
Can this possibly be real?
Tim Rogers of D Magazine says it’s not real:
Dallas Justice Now: Fact or Fiction?
A letter mailed to Park Cities homes is causing a bit of a stir. It asks White Democrats to pledge not to send their children to Ivy League schools or any of the U.S. News & World Report top 50 colleges as a way to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and to give kids of color a better chance of attending a good school. The letter was sent by an organization called Dallas Justice Now.
I think this whole thing is a hoax. Call it astroturf. Call it trolling. Whatever you like. But this is not a real thing. Everyone needs to take a breath and relax.
How can he be so sure?
Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire says it’s real.
