STAY WOKE: Durham Public Schools Makes February ‘Black Lives Matter at School Month of Action’

DURHAM – The public schools of the Bull City are intent on filling their curriculum with the pseudo-intellectual garbage that is behind Black Lives Matter, even if they still refuse to actually fill their classrooms with students.

Durham Public Schools System passed a resolution to make February ‘Black Lives Matter in Schools Month of Action.’ Now, if you thought schools with Woke administrations like Durham had been doing this every month anyway; that’s understandable, they push the Woke philosophy 24/7.

The traditional Black History Month in which we focus on the message of Martin Luther King Jr.; the overlooked struggles, influences, and successes of black Americans; and, resonate with the uniquely American precept that it is the individual who has worth and rights inherently, not as part of one group or another based on race, or class, or sex, and so on.

Instead, Durham Public Schools will focus on race to push Marxian collectivism, explicitly label all opposing views as racist, and predicate all self-worth on one’s identity.

The month of action comes complete with ‘National Demands’: End zero tolerance, Hire more black teachers, mandate black history and ethnic studies in K-12, and get rid of those oppressive school resource officers to hire more counselors instead.

It’s the ‘Guiding Principles,’ though, where you’ll find confirmation of the radical, anti-American, immoral collectivism that powers this movement (emphasis added):

    • Restorative Justice – We are committed to collectively, lovingly, and courageously working vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension all people. As we forge our path, we intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.
    • Empathy – We are committed to practicing empathy; we engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
    • Loving Engagement – We are committed to embodying and practicing justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another. 
    • Diversity – We are committed to acknowledging, respecting, and celebrating difference(s) and commonalities.
    • Globalism – We see ourselves as part of the global Black family and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black folk who exist in different parts of the world.
    • Collective Value – We are guided by the fact all Black lives, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
    • Transgender Affirming – We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
    • Queer Affirming – We are committed to fostering a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking or, rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual unless s/he or they disclose otherwise.
    • Intergenerational – We are committed to fostering an intergenerational and communal network free from ageism. We believe that all people, regardless of age, show up with the capacity to lead and learn.
    • Black Families – We are committed to making our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We are committed to dismantling the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” that require them to mother in private even as they participate in justice work.
    • Black Villages – We are committed to disrupting the Western prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
    • Unapologetically Black – We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a necessary prerequisite for wanting the same for others.
    • Black Women – We are committed to building a Black woman affirming space free from sexism, misogyny, and male‐centeredness.

Well, then, comrades; what do you say? Should we destroy the nuclear family, all vestiges of Western Civilization, and implement a radical Woke Regime?

This is a propaganda campaign that is being peddled as part of the public school curriculum!

Notice the use of terms like, ‘folk.’ It may seem innocuous, but it is not without significance; these are the terms of communists, Marxists, Marxians.

This is the language of Collectivists, employed by the Woke Cultural Revolutionaries to, well, push a cultural revolution. The promulgators quite literally want to destroy the American way of life, the American idea, of Western society, because they are it’s enemy.

BLM leaders state this openly.

And Durham Public Schools is all too eager to help them do it by brainwashing kids into this system of thought that is, in fact, evil.
