Mr. Barron tries to give a history lesson, and remembering Tulsa 93 years later.

Embedded image permalinkJustin Beiber telling racist jokes (I bet Usher is sorry that he helped to make this clown),Donald Sterling's jump- off who outed him, has her own video dissing black folks. And while one of our icons lay dying, a 911 operator is caught dissing another black icon because of her concerns about racism.


With all of this ignorance surrounding race in our country, you would think that a teacher trying to teach his class about the roots of racism and this country's history when it comes to the subject would be welcome subject in his class -room. You would be wrong.


I give you the sad case of Alan Barron:


"A community is outraged after a Michigan public school teacher was removed from the classroom for showing a video of white entertainers in blackface.
District officials are looking into whether 59-year-old Alan Barron's lesson plan on African-American history and Jim Crow racial segregation laws was inappropriate.


The Monroe News reports that Barron showed a video of how white people used blackface to imitate African Americans during what they considered entertainment in the 1800s. According to parents whose children are in the eighth-grade class, the administrator thought the lesson plan was offensive and racist.


Parent Adrienne Aaron, whose husband is African American, told The Monroe News her daughter was not offended and that she felt that the subject needs to be discussed.


"She was more offended that they stopped the video," Aaron said of her daughter. "It had nothing to do with racism. History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we've come in America. How is that racism?"
Many parents and students are supporting Barron, who is retiring at the end of this school year after 36 years in the classroom.


During his suspension, Mr. Barron is not allowed to attend district functions, including an annual banquet where retiring teachers are honored. " [Source]


So the whitewashing of America's history continues. Poor Mr. Barron was just trying to teach the children in his class the history of their country.


The man should have been given a teacher of the year award not suspended.


Finally speaking of history, if you are not up on the story of the Tulsa Riots and what happened to Black Wall Street, today might be a good day to read up on it.


Today is the 93rd anniversary of that sad event.

So you're saying in the past there was some injustice and bigotry? Yeah. And?
Why am I reading up on it?
What am I supposed to do? Give the country to some US hating foreigner with a grudge who will wreck it? Sure, that'll happen.

Oh, shit!

I can't believe the NRA has the power to remove teachers.

Why isn't the democrats on the school board making these decisions?


I suspect that if my posts were all about praising republicans and slamming Democrats we would never hear from him.

Since your posting about democrats behaving badly and suspending a teacher, I'll go on record and agree with you.

What difference does it make? It's way in the past. A small token of reparations has been made by the great state of Oklahoma.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

School administrators have a zero tolerance policy for controversy which, ironically enough, births more controversy that it avoids.

But yeah, white America at least is exceedingly uncomfortable with discussions of racism. We react defensively to them because we view them as an attack on us.

With our history is it any wonder? How do you repeat those things without necessarily indicting us all?

"By Yolanda Spivey

Black Wall Street is a name that was given to one of the most successful affluent all-Black communities that existed in America—the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma. During the height of its success, Black Wall Street had over 600 successful businesses. It boasted 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores, two movie theaters, a hospital, bank, post office, a few libraries, schools, 2 airports, and a well established bus system. It was self contained. On the evening of June 1, 1921, Black Wall Street was destroyed during a race riot led by the KKK. Black Wall Street proved that Blacks could create an infrastructure that was self contained and well established."

Sounds like a lot more than $7 and lunch meat to me.

Btw, Field has not paid one red cent for the services of Anon Inc. Now see, this is the reason Blacks can't get ahead. Blacks like Field are always ripping off other Blacks...It's a damn shame.

I really hope some of FN posters will give Field some shit about this.

Well, except this seems to fall under the heading of "unintentional whitewashing." The school censored this lesson out of a clueless attempt to NOT be racist.

Apparently, some people are too dimwitted to understand that depicting racism isn't the same thing as promoting racism. These are the same sort of people that keep trying to ban "Huck Finn" because it contains many instances of the word "nigger." They just focus on that word and miss the entire point of the book, which was highly critical of slavery.

In Tulsa, an estimate was made of the losses. $30 million (in today's dollars) in real estate and personal property were burned or looted. I don't think that includes the value of businesses that were wiped out.

Well, I find the comment above quite depressing and hopeless. It means we are at the mercy of racists, and therefore will never have much...depressing.

Since anything we might build will be destroyed by racists, why even bother? Depressing.

To always live under the threat and to be kept down at the bottom is depressing and hopeless.

I bet the suicide rate among Blacks is pretty high. DEPRESSING.

FN is a depressing blog. It never offers any hope. Just the same old squirrel cage to run in. Nope, it only validates that Blacks are powerless and at the mercy of racist Whites. If that be the case, we are finished.

But maybe that is what FN is trying to tell everybody?

Blacks no longer support Blacks nor believe in each other anymore. Trust has gone out the window. To get ahead today, you have to be a sell-out of your black brother. There are many.

Why does Tyler need a project? What are the rumors about Tyler's dad?

Is Tyler headed in the same direction of Spike Lee=Loser? I hope not.

Btw, no book has ever been written about Black Wall Street. Why? Let me answer that for you: Because Blacks don't care or know about their history and for good reason....it's a painful and shameful one perpetrated by shameless evil Whites.

A white teacher in Oklahoma can't even talk about black history without losing his job. That's how horrific black history is FOR WHITES. I wonder why?

The truth is, the horrors of black history cannot be separated from the horrific evils of white history. They are intertwined. No wonder the history books have been cooked into lies by Whites. Who could stand to look at themselves in the mirror after so many dastardly acts against humanity and God?

Okay, Conspiracy Brother, it's one thing to say that black history or the history of racial conflict is not adequately covered in many high schools. That's a matter of opinion.

But it's not like this stuff is a some kind of big secret, with no one covering it or government departments devoted to erasing the facts. You can easily learn about whatever you want with a trip to the local library.

Of course it's no secret, unless you are responsible for writing the history books. There is no reason to go to the library to learn about what was 'left' out of a biased untrue history of America when you 'trust' the historians. Besides, NOT everything is in the library, esp when it comes to the racist history of this country. Much has been hidden or erased. That is very common.

As a lawyer FN could offer some insight to the legality of releasing POWs without congressional a[pproval.

Assuming there's not an important update to the sterling or beiber stories.

Bill, the insight you are requesting requires no lawyer whatsoever, let alone congressional approval.

Didn't Obama prove that? Bill, you need to pay attention, learn and understand. Most Obamaholics understand.

However, I see your point for Mr Field to post on this subject. You want him to post in simple terms that you may comprehend the 'new order' of this country between the President and Congress.

I'm not sure if Mr Field can do that. He is a rather complicated individual. I am speaking of Mr Field, not the President. Well, maybe the President too.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

Why black people vote Democratic:

"According to a recent paper from Zoltan L. Hajnal and Jeremy D. Horowitz – both political scientists at the University of California–San Diego – there’s clear evidence that when the nation is governed by Democrats, black well-being “improves dramatically” across multiple dimensions. Specifically, looking at data from 1948 to 2010, Hajnal and Horowitz found that “African Americans tend to experience substantial gains under Democratic presidents whereas they tend to incur significant losses or remain stagnant under Republicans.” On average, under Democratic presidents, blacks gained $895 in annual income, saw a 2.41 point drop in their poverty rate, and a 0.36 point drop in their unemployment rate. By contrast, under Republicans, blacks gained $142 a year, along with a 0.15-point increase in poverty and a 0.39-point increase in unemployment."

That's right; rational self interest.

Bill said...


CNN-

Many of Bergdahl's fellow troops -- from the seven or so who knew him best in his squad to the larger group that made up the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division -- told CNN that they signed nondisclosure agreements agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl's disappearance and the efforts to recapture him. Some were willing to dismiss that document in hopes that the truth would come out about a soldier who they now fear is being hailed as a hero, while the men who lost their lives looking for him are ignored.

http://edition.cnn.com/2014/06/01/us/bergdahl-deserter-or-hero/

Nondisclosure agreements?

Something is being hidden.

On second thought, FN better ignore this story.

PilotX said...

"That's right; rational self interest."

Wall Street and the working man tend to do better under Democratic Presidents. But hey, why use facts when we can talk about plantations.

"Something is being hidden."

Always happens in time of war. Better get the POW's out now because after 2016 it will be very difficult because of the pullout.

on top of it all, Obama made an illegal deal by explicitly breaking the law by not informing congress of the deal.

both of those cocksuckers should be swinging from the end of a rope.

The deal was illegal because dear leader didn't follow the law that requires notifying Congress within 30 days of prisoner transfer.

I guess it's ok for some presidents to break the law. Especially when they are Democrat and/or brown.
