Public Schools in Seattle Hosting Racially Segregated Listening Tour With Superintendent

“The district is trying to segregate our communities”

Have you noticed that many of the people who claim to be anti-racist often want to segregate students?

KTTH Radio reports:

Rantz: Seattle Public Schools to hold racially segregated ‘listening tour’ with superintendent

Seattle Public Schools is conducting a “listening tour” for parents to discuss how to make the district more welcoming. But only certain racial identities are welcome at some of the meeting meetings.

SPS and the Seattle Council of Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is hosting seven listening sessions with superintendent Dr. Brent Jones. The remote tour starts on April 19. One of the sessions is for Black families and a second for Native American families. They also recently added meetings specifically for East African and Black Immigrant Families, plus Multigenerational African American Black Families. The district and PTSA believe these race-exclusionary meetings promote equity. But they may represent illegal discrimination.

“The district is trying to segregate our communities,” one parent told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.

Seattle Public Schools push racial segregation
SPS says it’s committed to a nondiscrimination policy where it says it “does not discriminate in any programs or activities” on the basis of race. Yet they’re embracing “affinity groups” for meetings, which embraces a condescending claim that, in this case, black and Native American families don’t feel comfortable around families that don’t like themselves.

“We often use affinity groups to invite a variety of voices, which reflect the many facets of our school community, into relevant and meaningful conversation,” a district spokesperson tells the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “The upcoming listening tour is designed to offer safe and welcoming spaces so that unique perspectives, input, and concerns can be shared with the superintendent.”

“The district and PTSA believe these race-exclusionary meetings promote equity.”

So they’re promoting “separate but equal.” Wonder where I’ve heard that before?

        I’m still in the hospital and have all kinds of interesting things going on. I won’t burden the rest of the crowd with this at least until I get out of the hospital and everything settle down. Maybe not even then. Folks might not really want to be hearing my “organ recitals”.

        Thanks for the update. I’m pulling for you good buddy.

Racially segregated meetings is what they would have done in Alabama back in 1969. Fifty years of racial progress smashed by Seattle Public Schools.

Their statement that “black and Native American families don’t feel comfortable around families that don’t look like themselves” nearly quotes George Corley Wallace’s support for segregation, “Black folks are more comfortable among their own kind.”

I think it is all a clever plot to get rid of “The Bee” by making reality a bit more absurd and bizarre than your average Bee story of the past.

Of course, anyone who questions any of this is then outed as a racist and a white supremacist. This is the irony that Alanis should have sung about.

“Racially segregated listening tour”

Black people and White people aren’t allowed to listen together. That’s a fine solution to racial discrimination.

DemoncRats doing what they’ve always done: dividing Americans along racial lines. Now, they’ve figured out they can get a pass by labeling as racist anyone who criticizes them for segregating Americans.
