Indiana is apparently starting to breed hate and racial division way down at the primary school level. Kids as young as the 3rd grade have been taken to local colleges, getting to meet students, and having fun field trips to campuses. What’s the problem? They are ONLY allowing black students to go. Yes, seriously. If this doesn’t smack of reverse racism, I don’t know what it is:
The students facing racial segregation in America in the year 2015 are third graders at seven elementary schools, reports local ABC affiliate WBND.
School district officials say they do not intend for the taxpayer-funded reenactment of Jim Crow-era race segregation to be discriminatory. Instead, they say, the intent is to inform black students about college because low numbers of black students attend college.
“I want these third graders to have the opportunity to think of themselves as college students,” G. David Moss, director of African-American student and parent services, told WBND.
“We take them to a college campus, have them meet African-American students, modeling the idea that as a black person, college is a great place,” Moss explained.
“It was not meant to be exclusionary,” Moss said. “It was only meant to support and give these kids what they need to think positively about themselves and about their future.”
Opinion among parents in South Bend is split about their children being treated differently because of skin color.
Some parents don’t want their children to suffer racial discrimination.
No kids should be segregated by skin color, no matter what the intent behind it was. All the kids should be going on these field trips and being exposed to higher education. No matter what the skin color. Imagine if the skin colors were reversed – there would be rioting in the streets, there would be rallies, parades, the whole 9 yards. The ridiculous double standard needs to stop. Racism cuts both ways. Let’s try to do some damage control, and at least include all the children on the next trip.
