So much for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of judging someone by their character and not by the color of their skin.
White students in Virginia were ostracized and found guilty for things that have happened in the past when they were not even on this earth. But obviously according to the makers of the video, the African-American Policy Forum, these students are guilty just because they have less pigmentation in their skin.
Parents were understandably outraged that the video, titled “Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race,” was shown to students.
In the video, students of different ethnicities are running in a track meet. While the white students run freely, even being lavished with money, the others encounter roadblocks including ‘racial profiling.’ shark infested waters, a stop light that automatically puts them behind the white students by two laps and much more.
In the end, the video proclaims, “Affirmative action helps level the playing field.”
Don Blake has a granddaughter who was forced to watch the video at a school assembly. He was outraged when he spoke with WWBT-TV and said, “They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint. It’s a white guilt kind of video. I think somebody should be held accountable for this.”
Radio personality Craig Johnson stated, “Dr. King gave his life so that America would be a place where we are judged by the content of our character not the color of our skin. Now we have poverty pimps being led by our current president Barack Obama who all they talk about is the color of skin.”
Then, Johnson offered a challenge to anyone who would defend the video. He issued this challenge.
“Force that person to stand on that stage and defend that video. I’m telling you … I will mop the floor with that person.”
The Henrico School District issued a statement amid the uproar.
The students participated in a presentation that involved American history and racial discourse. A segment of the video was one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged. As always, we are welcoming of feedback from students and their families, and we address concerns directly as they come forward.
Is this a sign that Dr. King’s dream is dead thanks to racial grievance industry profiteers like Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson?
