83yo murals at George Washington High School in the San Francisco Unified School District are apparently traumatizing students of non white backgrounds. Activists have successfully voted for their removal.
The Reflection & Action Group committee comprised of activists from minority groups, students, teachers and local artists reported,
“At its conclusion the group voted and the majority recommended that the ‘Life of Washington’ mural be archived and removed because the mural does not represent SFUSD values.”
Why not just stop teaching history all together? Or better still just a concocted version of it. Demonize these horrible white supremacists. Stage public floggings in place of detention for white kids in the schoolyard to atone for the sins of their forebears.
If only these teachers started to teach reality of how far society has come over the decades? Take the FBI hate crime stats which is close as we can get to true figures surrounding victimization.
Anti Black Hate Crimes have more than halved since 1996. As a % of the black population, Anti-Black hate crimes have fallen from 0.0131% to 0.0046% of their background.
As a % of all hate crimes, African Americans have fallen from 51% to 28.1%. Anti-White hate crime has also slid from just under 16% to 10.3% between 1996 and 2017.
As a % of the total population, anti-white hate crimes have slid from 0.00052% in 1996 to 0.00023% in 2017, up from 0.00016% in 2011. The media would never run a narrative that hate crimes against whites have jumped 44% since 2011.

It boggles the mind that these apparatchiks think that erasing history and reversing discrimination is the way forward to seek a better society.
How about the latest US history textbook which paints Trump as a liar and many of his followers are racists? Then the publisher wrote that an independent review justified such ridiculous additions as adding to debate and critical thinking. After you!
The media is no less complicit. Just as they wrote about racial bias in high schools. The data proves them emphatically wrong. Yet it paints a narrative so they push it that a cabal of racist teachers are deliberately targeting kids of colour.
Surely time to rename the George Washington High School to the Barack Obama High School instead?
This oppression obsession must end. We must stop bending over for activists who find problems where they don’t exist. This will end up in civil disruption if we aren’t careful.
