Doesn’t this sound useful

Harris lives nearby, just a 10-minute drive to MLK Jr, an African American immersion school where students are steeped in a culturally affirming curriculum that’s heavy on Black arts, history and culture.

  1. I can’t imagine that Dr King would be terribly pleased with a segregated school where the curriculum focuses on grievance studies.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    No doubt those students, away from all that structural racism, are out standing academic performers. We can, I am sure, expect a cure for cancer or the like some time soon from their alumni. After all, what can’t Blacks do once they are no longer held down by the Man?

  3. Steve- you’re going no-where near da mat with those sorry excuse for sneaks my brethren, whatdo you call them? Plimpsolls?

  4. “…in a culturally affirming curriculum that’s heavy on Black arts, history and culture.”

    What do they do for the other 364 day of the year?

  5. Dennis, Pointing Out The Obvious

    I can’t imagine that Dr King would be terribly pleased with a segregated school where the curriculum focuses on grievance studies.

    If Dr. King were alive and gave his “I Have A Dream” speech today, he would be derided by black liberals, white liberals, the main stream media and politicians like Kamala Harris as an Uncle Tom.

  6. She is a deeply ugly female..

    As for living a 10 min drive away–likely true only if he drives at 250 MPH.

  7. I’ve checked the Milwaukee public schools data online; the school in question has 292 pupils, of which 283 are African-American. Is such extreme segregation common in America?

    Well, tragically, the City of Milwaukee is a Dem stronghold, best i can tell.

    So quelle surprise the wipipo haters can’t run an educational system worth shit.

  9. “North Division high school, where MLK students may one day land, is 96% Black. Roughly 98% of all students at North Division fell short of proficiency in math and language arts in 2019. That year, roughly 35% of students graduated on time.”
    The Grauniad says 55% of the students live in poverty – so 45% don’t and at least 43 out of that 45 fell short of proficiency in basic English and Arithmetic!! At least half of all white and Latino students fell short of proficiency in basic English (or Spanish) and arithmetic. [When they say “math” they mean arithmetic: there’s no point in teaching them algebra, geometry or calculus until they’ve learnt basic arithmetic because e.g. Pythagoras’ theorem involves squaring numbers (he actually did it with squares and triangles but modern schoolteachers find 9+16=25 far easier than getting all the kids to draw squares)]
    The school is an appalling failure – it isn’t just the kids living in poverty, it fails those who don’t.

  10. Dr King has already been criticised and derided for his beliefs by current rights and political groups.
    Doesn’t stop them using his name when it suits them of course.

    Maybe Trump should quote him as part of his defence, he did warn that ‘a riot is the voice of the unheard’. I’m sure there’s plenty of speeches about ‘fighting’ and ‘stolen rights’ etc. to large groups which you could quote and ask are these deemed to be incitement…..of course don’t give the sources until after they give an answer, would be fun to see yes then backpedaling later

  11. “ Pythagoras’ theorem involves squaring numbers (he actually did it with squares and triangles but modern schoolteachers find 9+16=25 far easier than getting all the kids to draw squares)]”

    God forbid we should teach people basics and deriving things from first principles anymore.

  12. Pythagoras was white and male. His theorem is therefore irrelevant. Even though he didn’t actually invent it himself but stole it from a black ladyboy.

  13. On the plus side, high rates of truancy shouldn’t have tangible impact on their learning.

    On the contrary, high rates of truancy could be quite advantageous since they would miss out on all the We Wuz Kangz and Kill Whitey propaganda. They might actually end up being functional members of street society rather than perennial victims demanding a handout because “Muh Slavery” or whatnot.
