“Our liberation depends on all students, not just black students, getting an education that challenges and changes the structures of systemic racism,” Brown said.

…The initiative in Baltimore is tied to a list of demands that includes prioritizing the recruitment and retention of black teachers and ensuring racial equity in school funding.

…In Brittany Brown’s humanities class, students held a “Black Panther Party Mixer” Thursday. Each student was assigned a historical figure from the Black Panther Party, and told to research their lives and ideologies. The students interacted with each other while role-playing in their assumed identity. On the white board behind the students, Brown had written out the guiding principles of the Black Lives Matter movement.

…Baltimore has made it a priority to include culturally relevant materials across its curricula, said spokeswoman Edie House-Foster. She said the district is also working to increase the number of teachers of color.

 

Baltimore has a shortage of teachers of color?  Equity in school funding for Baltimore? 

Personally, I think what's really needed are more parents who are more directly involved in their kids' lives and education.  The rest will fall in place if that happens. 

Instead of preparing students for entry into a world and workplace that's actually diverse, it looks like some are trying to make things more insular.  This seems more like a nostalgic throwback to the pro-revolution socialist Black Panther movement founded by Seale and Newton if those are the historical figures they're encouraging students to role-play.

Half these kids only have one parent.  Usually a mother.  By the time these kids are 10, it's a lost cause.

I read the article earlier today.

One thing kinda stuck out in my mind....blacklivesmatter. And that is correct no doubt.

However if they do....then why isn't the focus....the total focus on helping blacks in the city 'get their act together'.

What I mean is....and this is what I walked away with....that it seems that...they want to fix everything else around themselves...but not themselves?????

Also...the “Black Panther Party Mixer”...are you shxt'n me? Really? They can have that?

What kind of poop would hit the fan if there was a 'KKK Party mixer' or 'Neo-nazi Party Mixer'? Christ I doubt you could breath in this state for all the planes and buses coming in hauling SJWs, NAACP etc in ...they would produce so much pollution....the transportation I mean....well maybe the do gooders also. :lol:

smh

Yup two sets of rules.

The black panthers aren't equivalent to the KKK or neo-nazis? Who did they kill? Their guns weren't even loaded. They just scared the hell outta white people 'cause they wwere black people with guns. 

In today's racial climate minorities  need to be a little more vigilant perhaps even militant.

There are a lot of white folk that don't go the city  or are arming themselves for the same reason.

But that is different....right? :rolleyes:

Unloaded guns....just to scare white folk ... you are clueless........

I decided to use the way back machine......

Below are the names and photos of 35 police officers who were murdered by the Black Panthers and the subsequent Black Liberation Army in the 60s, 70s and 80s. The Black Liberation Army was an organization that grew out of the Black Panther Party, composed of former Black Panther Party members, operating from about 1971-1980. Another two police officers on the list were murdered by the Weather Underground, a domestic terrorist group with ties to the Black Liberation Army.

How many innocent black folks have cops killed??!! Especially racist ones...

The Tribune became part of the uproar when it published a photograph showing holes in a door jamb that it identified as coming from bullets fired from inside the apartment. They proved to be nail heads.

Months later, a federal investigation showed that only one shot was fired by the Panthers, although that number remained in dispute. Police fired 82 to 99 shots

When you got an answer to your question about who have the Black Panthers killed you changed the subject.

Why is that?

Cause the cops weren’t innocent bystanders or victims.

The Black Panther party is the red meat for the people who resent the Black Lives Matter movement. YOu are right that in general the things a school can do to prepare some young people for a successful life is very small, so anything that can be a step in the right direction is important.

On Dec. 4, it will have been 47 years since a select unit of 14 Chicago police officers, under the direction of Cook County State's Attorney Edward Hanrahan, executed a predawn raid on a West Side apartment that left Illinois Black Panther Party (BPP) leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark dead, several other young Panthers wounded and seven raid survivors arrested on bogus attempted murder charges. Though Hanrahan and his men claimed there had been a shootout that morning, physical evidence eventually proved that in reality, the Panthers had only fired a single shot in response to approximately 90 from the police.

And the Black Panther killers were innocent bystanders?

The cops were the black panther killers. No they weren't innocent bystanders. I just said that.

The government spent the next two weeks producing several volumes of documents each day. The files contained directives to destroy the Panther's Breakfast for Children Program and disrupt the distribution of the BPP newspaper, extensive wiretap overhears and evidence that the charismatic Hampton had been specifically targeted for intensive surveillance and disruption.


 

Some white people want it both ways. They want blacks to take a strong stand for their community then when we do we're labeled militant, racist and pretty much terrorists. I bet a lot of kids in Baltimore would benefit from a BP Breakfast for children program today. Then some of you wouldn't have to whine about tax dollars being used to do it. :rolleyes:

It's funny how people who have no problem with the Black Panthers and make excuses for them while snowflakes in Montgomery County were having fits and screaming about divisiveness over a damn "It's okay to be white" poster. 

I have no problem with kids getting breakfast paid for with tax dollars but it's wrong to ignore the reason so many of them need to be fed and taken care of like that because they aren't getting it from home.

I'd be interested in seeing someone dispute that.

It's not a good idea to push white families out of the City's public schools by requiring kids to glorify the violent racists of the Black Panther Party.

And of course my point completely went over your head (no surprise there).  You're doing exactly what I just said your type do. COMPLAINING about tax dollars being used. When people like the BPs were "fixing their house" the FBI destroyed them.

Ohhhh my....guess that really did fly over my head.

Geeee I can't for the life of my figure out why I could not connect those dots. :rolleyes:

Lets see if I can follow your pinball wizard logic....BPs are innocent.....all cops are non-victims....cops only kill unarmed black people....the city isn't getting it's fair share for anything.....white people want it both ways....but blacks want independence ...but need money from tax payers..........

BBBBBuuuuzzzzzz Game over....you lose.

Keep going MM.... this is fun....almost as much fun when I used to pay a penny or two on the board walk to shoot down those nasty jap planes attacking the US.

Keep going....this is better than any on-line video game.

Ahhhh on second thought..... don't ... the idea of a mental mercy killing of you is too repulsive for me to handle on a Friday night. :D

Never said they weren't    but I may have implied that a disproportionate number in the city don't.

My bad.

BTW my black upper middle class neighbors ALSO have issues with generational freeloader and they have told me so. They get more POed than I do when another Section 8 moves in.
