Poisoning the Minds of America's Schoolchildren

Teaching kids to hate their country's traditions and institutions.

For the past 30 years, a Philadelphia-based organization called Need in Deed (NID) has been training elementary and middle-school teachers “to use the classroom to prepare young people for civic responsibility and service to others.” And how, exactly, does NID do this? By training its teachers to engage students in long-term “service projects” whose objective is to: (a) inculcate youngsters with the notion that America is an oppressive wasteland where nonwhite minorities, women, homosexuals, the poor, and even the natural environment are routinely exploited and abused; and (b) turn children into budding political activists and community organizers who seek to fundamentally transform that deeply flawed society.

For example, in one NID project at Grover Washington Jr. Middle School in Philadelphia, eighth-grade students explored “some of the discriminatory housing forces – practices like redlining, steering, predatory lending and ethnic intimidation – that have influenced the[ir] city’s racial and economic segregation” over the years. As part of their instruction, these students watched an ABC Nightline segment titled “Race in America,” which examined the case of a black family that had fearfully fled their new home in a mostly white section of Philadelphia after neighbors harassed them with racial epithets and threatening letters. After watching the video, the students were asked to express, in writing, their outrage over how the black family had been mistreated.

As part of that same NID project, Princeton sociologist Doug Massey, author of American Apartheid: Segregation and the Making of an Underclass – a book claiming that black urban poverty is largely a result of massive discrimination in U.S. cities – addressed the students personally. In a subsequent lesson, the youngsters watched a documentary titled Race: The Power of an Illusion, which, in the words of its producer, “reveals how our social institutions 'make' race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status and wealth to white people.”

Thank your lucky stars that everywhere isn't like Philadelphia, or Baltimore, or Chicago.

It sounds like something that Obama would endorse.

This has been the agenda for the whole country, not just Philidelphia. They have been brainwashing our kids for fifty years.

Sorry, most people get power, money and status by either working harder than the rest of us or by coming up with a new idea (and working harder than the rest of us).
Some people will never have it (including millions of white people - did they miss that fact??). Not everyone is a Bill Gates or Warren Buffett.
BUT, if you and your family have been on welfare for three generations, spend you money trying to hit the lottery (with notebooks pages of numbers they dreamed, and many have been to prison and the great majority of your kids don't know or ever see their father, well, you dummies STILL think you DESERVE what everyone else worked 16 hr weeks for?
Victimhood is the hallmark of a loser. They wear it like it's a ticket to Willie Wonka's chocolate factory.
I wish someone would "channel" some cash to ME. I'm white and have been waiting for my privilege to get me some of that channeling
and power.
"The harder I work, the luckier I get".
Quit whining, get off welfare, get a job, and try to stay with just ONE of yo bitc*** at least until the kid starts high school.
