Racism in America

I went to my grandson’s graduation this AM.
Some woman with a doctorate in Urban Education from Berkeley who is the Superintendent of the district started speaking of her African American background and how she was proudly wearing her Kinta cloth to honor the graduating class, went on talking about herself and then finally gave her advice to the class: “Remember the lessons you’ve learned here in how to be social….”
As opposed to the academic lessons they had learned.
One of my co-hosts explained to me when I was telling this on air that a Kinta cloth is a colored cloth indicating African royalty. That she was dispensing grace from her royal personage to the class of 70% white kids.
The speaker after her, a gentleman in his late 50’s reminding me in appearance of John Bolton who was the head of the school board, then spoke of not feeling bad not honoring his cultural heritage by not wearing a kilt!
He then spoke of thanking those who made possible these kids having a great future. He asked us veterans in the building to stand!
Both my boys were fully cognizant of the slap just delivered to the previous speaker and looked to me and smiled as the audience clapped.
I think they both appreciated that I hadn't earlier stood and called out the progressive racist that had spoken earlier.

  1. Impressive that the man had the courage to counter the social princess' message.

    1. I'd be tempted to attend some board meetings if it were my district.
      But conservatives must run for school boards.
      Except we have real jobs and families and church and other responsibilities.

    2. I've often thought about running for local school board; it would be refreshing to have a homeschool parent on any board. But my job schedule with overseas commitments make that relatively infeasible.

    3. You, sir, have sacrificed enough in the face of the enemy. To have to face them across the negotiating table would be the penultimate sacrifice!

  2. I presently live in a region under represented by Africans. And I’m not complaining.

  4. Surprised there wasn't a walkout by the snowflakes. Maybe there is hope after all.

  5. A PhD from the university of california berkeley is nothing but an insult to those intelligent, erudite men and women who actually have earned a PhD at a real university - not an SJW training camp.

    I'm glad the man spoke up and delivered a few pertinent remarks. She won't understand his speech, but she'll have the uneasy feeling that people are laughing at her and her imitation doctorate and imaginary royal title.

  6. It's not often that justice can be served in near real time, Sweet.

    Oh, and the (Harvard PhD) principle of my oldest's High School was the reason that I wouldn't set foot in that school until his graduation.

    1. Unfortunately, your oldest had to.
      I trust your oldest survived.

    1. I know too many good people of races other than mine to judge that everyone of their race is unworthy of my respect.
      Innocent until "act like a jerk".

    2. Of course. Arab? No use for any of them - DING. Black, yes I know many outstanding black folks but it's not hard to seperate the blacks from the gangbangers. See Chris Rock's I Hate N------s
      Russians? Dang are they propagandized and they HATE westerners. Check out any comment section of anything on RT.COM. America = Satan, Jews = worse.
      In summary, I have little use for anyone who does not embrace America's Declaration of Independence in a spiritual way. I consider them defective.
