A woke, white school board member in Washington State is suggesting that schools should end music classes because teaching music is an example of “white supremacy.”
Here we go again, right?
Once again, we see that the mental disorder of liberalism destroying everything it touches.
Per The College Fix
According to KTTH-770, the district is dealing with a budget deficit of over $11 million and music classes for 4th and 5th graders have been considered for termination.
At an April 17 board meeting (video below), Scott Clifthorne said elementary-level music classes “aren’t offered equitably” in district schools as some students occasionally have to miss their “core” classes in order to play music.
As conservative pundit Jason Rantz notes, instead of dealing with this “reasonable concern,” Clifthorne followed up with a diatribe about white supremacy.
“We also know that there are other folks in the community that experience things like a tradition of excellence as exclusionary,” Clifthorne said. “But that’s not unique to elementary instrumental music. We’re a school district that lives in … is entrenched in … is surrounded by white supremacy culture. And that’s a real thing.”
Just listen to this idiot:
There’s nothing about strings or wind instrumental music that is intrinsically white supremacist. However, the ways in which it is and the ways in which all of our institutions, not just schools — local government, state government, churches, or neighborhoods — inculcate and allow white supremacy culture to continue to be propagated and cause significant institutional violence are things that we have to think about carefully as a community. And I think that we have to do that interrogation. And we have to address the ways in which it creates challenges for administering the educational day for our elementary learners while we retain the program.
These people need to be taken out of every place of any power to influence. They are literally a danger to every child in America.
