Take a good look at the colorful school poster below. Parents at a coastal town in Oregon noticed it and complained to the middle school principal.* His response was pablum:
“Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns. That poster did appear at Broadway Middle School earlier this year and we are aware it was shared on the Internet. The poster was removed immediately when the content you are referring to was identified. Our goal is to always support every student that we serve. We have taken appropriate steps to work with our staff and students to ensure we send the continual message that each student and their uniqueness is to be celebrated.”
HATRED IN SCHOOLS: TAUGHT BY ADULTS, INFLICTED ON KIDS
Notice the principal didn’t say how the poster got there. He didn’t say whether or not it had first been approved by the administration. He didn’t say how long it was posted. He didn’t say if the person who posted it was identified and reprimanded: Was it a teacher? A student? Some outside organization who was invited to the school to indoctrinate the students?
With or without such posters, there IS a movement afoot to encourage students to target and bully Christians & “whites.” Where will this lead? Allowing “colored” kids to beat up “white” kids? Teachers giving lower grades to “white” kids & Christian kids?**
Are “white” kids supposed to be ashamed over something they can’t control? Being an “ally” to one person should not require the ally to be mean to another person.
HATRED IN SCHOOLS: DESTROYING THE NEXT GENERATION
A child who is taught to hate is harmed more than the object of the hate. He or she will become twisted in their perspective of others, how they treat others and how they interact with others. Society has lost some of its civility if we create a generation of haters. Regardless who the haters are and regardless who the hated are, our collective spirit has been irreparably harmed. And the child is the poorer for it.
And how is the child supposed to treat “categories” that overlap? A person can fall into more than one category listed on this poster. If the person is a gay “white” boy, should the ally befriend the gay half and condemn the “white” half? What about a black Christian?
Does the school force kids to be extra, extra, extra friendly to someone who is a double or triple “victim” of society? Black Lesbian? Disabled elderly Jewish man? Transgendered Christian? A poor Muslim with one arm? A mentally challenged Asian girl in a wheelchair?
Why aren’t girls and women listed as “victims” on this poster? After all, Liberals have been screaming & screaming that women & girls are victims, blaming a thousand different traits that men/boys allegedly possess and women/girls don’t.
HATRED IN SCHOOLS: WIPING OUT CIVIL SOCIETY
How many schools in Oregon are hanging this hateful poster or a facsimile? How many schools across the nation?
At most public schools in Oregon, even at the university level, one is not allowed to hang a poster, flyer, public service announcement, et al, WITHOUT first getting permission from the administration.
Such permission is shown on each posted document with some type of mark. Periodically, a monitor walks around and removes any poster that does not have such a mark. If the poster is inside a locked glass case, it also has the administration’s permission.
Did teachers and administrators see nothing wrong with the poster as they walked by it a dozen times a day? It took parents to call out the hate contained in its words? Are teachers and administrators so indoctrinated in Liberalism they can’t see how this message harms ALL children?
In the Liberal Fantasyland that is Oregon, teaching hatred for others has become more important than teaching our children skills they will need to be fully functioning adults. The fact that the administration didn’t immediately spot this colorful poster and recognize it for the hate-filled, harmful message it contains SPEAKS VOLUMES!

**Why does this writer use quotation marks around the word “white?” Because 1) So many Americans are multi-racial, 2) Americans can “look white” but have mostly “colored” genes, and 3) The Hateful Left has so bastardized the concept of “white people” during the Obama & Trump Administrations it is losing the meaning it used to have.
