Teachers called out for their participation
in white supremacy culture —
in an action-oriented way
Kids roaming the halls aimlessly, F-bombing their teachers when they’re not physically accosting them. Illiterate, arrogant, and headed for prison.
Dylan Brogan ripped the bandage off Jennifer Cheatham’s failed superintendency in his Isthmus cover story, “A Rotten Year.”
“If I wrote up students for swearing that’s all I would do,” one Madison public school teacher told the reporter.
Cheer up, Jen, as you pack for the ivy halls of Harvard University, where you will replicate your failure by training a thousand new Cheathams to doom new generations. You leave behind a cadre of guilty white acolytes in the school system you helped destroy, ready to play the race card rather than teach.
They call themselves “Educators Actively Working Toward Anti-Racism.” As described by the far-Left journalism enterprise Madison 365, they are “a group of mostly white teachers in Madison working toward greater equity.”
“It’s Not the Students That Made the Year Rotten,” they write, collectively (one presumes) to contradict Brogan. It’s racist teachers, excluding themselves.
In response to the Isthmus article “A Rotten Year,” our students of color are not the reason why our schools are rotting, it is white supremacy culture. This year was rotten, but not for lack of excellence in our schools; this year was rotten because a long dormant undercurrent of white supremacy broke through our defenses this year, flooding our communities with fear and distrust. If it felt like a rotten year for teachers, it is because teachers are finally being called out on their covert and overt participation in white supremacy culture.
Flooding the zone with idiotic hyperbole
What vivid imagery. The rottenness, long concealed, broke through enemy defenses like Jim Taylor shedding tacklers on Lambeau Field. (RIP, Bart Starr.) Like General Patton through the Wehrmacht’s Siegfried line. Like magma from a long-dormant Mt. Vesuvius, causing the heathens to cry out to Jupiter and Vulcan before perishing.
Teachers are finally being CALLED OUT! By the likes of Bianca Gomez and M. Adams, by Brandi Grayson and Ali Muldrow. Like Saddam Hussein having the traitors in his audience hustled out of the auditorium, never to be seen again.
“I would like permission to discriminate against students of color so I can do my job.” That is Muldrow mocking the typical Madison Metro school teacher.
Dylan Brogan, you are doing Satan’s work, say the Actively Working Educators. “[Your] article is both detrimental to our community and not providing any solutions,” the clandestine teachers against rampant racism proclaim. “We need to move forward in an action-oriented way with anti-racism at the forefront of our practices … and decenter whiteness …”
Now THERE’s a solution! Move forward — in an action-oriented way — ”with anti-racism practices.” AKA: Cheatham’s Behavior Education Plan!
Quick, more ‘Equity’!
Some of us maintain that learning to read and write will go a long ways toward combatting racism. It starts with “Get in here, kid. And do it NOW!”
Discipline is Lesson #1. Learning discipline will get you some learning, followed by a job and, perchance, stay out of the hoosegow. If you could get the kids to attend class and actually, you know, listen to their teachers. In an action-oriented sort of way. But then, we are not Jennifer Cheatheads, so what do we know?
But 60% of African-American kids reading below basic proficiency does NOT sound like “equity.” But then, we are not Jennifer Cheatheads, so what do we know?
Madison 365 says it did not name individual members of this underground group of heroes, “because they have received threats in the past.” No doubt from the Madison Teachers Inc. chapter of the KKK, in an action-oriented way.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: You want “threatened?” Attend a school board meeting and speak up for police in our troubled schools, you cowards.
For extra credit: While perusing Madison 365 we came across their take on one of our most excellent Blogges: “Blaska Mocks Restorative Justice, School-to-Prison Pipeline.” The piece got 530 likes. What does that say?! (Seriously, I don’t know. What does it say?)
