Education Department Warns Schools On Discrimination Toward Muslim and Refugee Students

A “Dear Colleague” guidance letter, signed by former U.S. Education Department (USED) Secretary Arne Duncan and Acting Secretary John King, warns school leaders against “targeting of particular students for harassment or blame,” particularly Muslim and Syrian refugee students.

According to the Washington Post, the guidance letter comes following a 2014 survey conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)—of Muslim youth aged 11-18 in California—that found 55 percent of Muslim youth reported being “bullied” at school because of their Islamic religion during this past year.

“This is twice as high as the national statistic of students reporting being bullied at school,” CAIR reports. “Many students experienced multiple types of bullying; however, the most common type of bullying American Muslim students faced was verbal at 52%.”

As Breitbart News has reported, while CAIR portrays itself as a civil rights group, the organization has often embraced radical Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Why are we singling out the Muslims for discrimination? I have never heard of any discrimination towards minorities. The only ones getting discriminated against are White Men and Americans.

Considering how white men have treated minorities it is frightening for them to realize the shoe may soon be on the other foot.

You mean they'll get jobs, work every day for The Man, support their families, and pay taxes to now support millions of able-bodied white people so they can kick back and relax?

Let me know how that work boot feels on that foot.
