Unbelievable That a School Would Do This!

Fox News reported on this issue yesterday.  To me it is inconceivable that a public school would air such a video of ridiculous propaganda and half-truths.  Talk about feeding into a victimization mentality!  Stuff like this and ridiculous ideas such as those espoused in this video, combined with a top echelon of "leadership" in Washington DC that feeds narratives like those this video spews, and abracadabra we have the worst race relations in our country that I can ever remember in my life.  I cannot imagine the thought process that was used in showing this garbage in a school classroom. Appalling....

From Fox News:

"An animated film designed as a lesson in “racial discourse” for students at a Virginia high school has led to backlash from community members who’ve taken issue with not-so subtle references to so-called white privilege throughout the video. 'They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint. It's a White guilt kind of video,” Don Blake, whose granddaughter attended the assembly where the video was shown, told told WWBT. “I think somebody should be held accountable for this."
