Elementary School Offers Tutoring... Unless You're White

By Bobby Eberle

Wow! As we strive for a truly colorblind society, it's quite apparent that the ones who hold us back are the ones who scream the loudest about equality. Those on the left blast those on the right, because we just want to recognize people for what they do, not what skin color they have. But, just like Barack Obama plays the race card over and over again, we have another example to point to. This time, it's an elementary school in Denver that offers a tutoring program... unless you are white.

As reported by Denver's CBS 4, the tutoring program at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora has come under fire, because it was not designed, nor did it welcome, all kids. If your child was white and needed tutoring, you were out of luck.

 

Here's the comments from one of the parents:

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.

Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.

“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said.

The school district is blaming the principal for this program, but how could it have even gotten this far? Nobody spoke up at all?

This is breathtaking in its stupidity. Is it such a hard concept to help a child... period? Does there always need to be an emphasis put on race? Just stop it now!

---

Update -- Most likely due to the negative reaction and outrage from parents, the principal has now "clarified" his remarks in a new letter. Despite the fact that the initial announcement stated the tutoring program was only available to children "of color," the principal now says it's open to all.

The letter reads in part, “I want to express my regret for the communication sent last Friday describing the PASS tutoring program.”

It also states, “… the tutoring program is open for all students, regardless of race/ethnicity, and on a first come, first served basis. As your child’s principal, I am equally concerned about the success of all students who attend our wonderfully diverse school.”

Regret for the "communication?" How about regret for a program designed to exclude certain children!?

    Discrimination against whites by minority officials is not new. Minorities in positions of power sometimes brazenly discriminate against whites because they have an ax to grind and are not held to the same standard as whites when discrimination is the issue. Some minorities, especially blacks believe that they cannot be guilty of discrimination, only discriminated against. This is an outrageously stupid mindset stoked up by the Progressive movement.

      Listen to the reporter’s intro, “…White students separated from other minorities….”

      The use of the word “other” in his lead means all, white, black, brown, yellow, red, green (why not?), are all “minorities.” But the principal’s letter means that “white” students are not persons of “color” since, to him, white is not an acceptable “color.”

      It’s sure good we’ve put all this racial “stuff” behind us now!

      And is there any formal disciplinary action for this principal? If this policy was communicated as a program for ‘whites only’ the principal would quite possibly be sued or even fired. A full investigation is in order. How can they get away with only a ‘new communication’ when our tax money was planned to be used for only certain students based on their race.

      To confirm the existence of a double standard in institutionalized racism, examine the United Negro College Fund. This institution has been around for many years. The charter is very clear, college aid for black students only. What would happen to a similar institution if aid was limited only to white students?

      Indeed the person at Mission Viejo who thought up this nonsense is a racist, but perhaps there’s an ironic twist here. Just maybe the person believes that white kids are so smart that none of them could possibly have any need for tutoring.

      The soft racism of diminished expectations?

      It would seem despite literally millions of dollars spent in everything from Head Start to remedial college courses for blacks, apparently the only way to “raise” black test scores is to “lower” WHITE test scores. If you cannot get blacks to perform BETTER in school no matter how much time, effort and money is spent attempting to do so, well, then do the next best thing, do all in your power to handicap white students! This, apparently, is how we think in this country today. We’ve gone from ending minority discrimination to promoting minority preference to discriminating against whites in the hope it will make blacks LOOK better. This is not only stupid, it is illegal and immoral – and it doesn’t help BLACKS one bit!

      Brilliant analysis disgustedbyignorantpeople

      Are the writers denying Cartesian single inference reasoning so popular with “progressives?” Or are they ignoring subsidiarity or is it solidarity? Or both? Are they concerned with who is trying to raise their children? Do you think they understand it costs 4 times as much money to run things from DC than from our local schools and towns?

      How would you handle Sharia Law if it got dumped on you?

      You’ve got to make your points other than cruising the internet looking for people you think are dumber than you. Might take more doing than you’ve accomplished so far.

    Dear friends:

    For the longest time, the Descrimination Song, have been sang, over and over again, by the false and self-serving apostles, that “mislead” our African american brothers and sisters.

    In my opinion, these false leaders DO NOT WANT their followers to free their minds and spirits and realize they have been fooled, for the longest time…

    Just look at how they live, and how they followers live!

    There has been only One real leaders in the African-American Community, Rev. Martin Luther King, the rest, are mostly von-vivants that continue to used, and mislead their floks BUT, GOD is watching and sooner or later will put an end to it…

    MAY GOD CONTINUE TO PROTECT OUR NATION, TODAY AND ALWAYS, FROM THESE SELF-APPOINTED PROFETS, WHO CONTINUE TO ENSLAVE THEM, WITH NO INTEREST IN ADVANCING THE POOR AND LESS FAVORED AFRICAN-AMERICAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS. SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, THEY HAVE TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM THIS ONGOING COURSE.

    “It also states, “… the tutoring program is open for all students, regardless of race/ethnicity, and on a first come, first served basis.”

    The program was first announced for minorities only, the principal knew there would be outrage, but that gave the minorities time to sign up on a “first come / first serve” basis before the whites were offered the program. Now when whites apply, “sorry but the program is already full and you will be placed on a waiting list”.

    PLEASE, do not be distracted by the racial aspects. That is not the real “stupidity.”

    All over the country, schools claim to teach phonics but they actually make children memorize sight-words. Most children will not learn to read this way. They will then need very expensive tutoring and remediation. The school brings in lots of money. Typically, the kids remain semi-literate.

    Two weeks ago a father called me about his first-grader. The boy was smart and articulate, but he couldn’t read. The principal assured the father, “He is getting plenty of phonics.” That is a lie.

    I just wrote an article yesterday about the whole dilemma. It’s set in Virginia; but the same nonsense is going on everywhere. If you have children in school, please read this:

    http://www.examiner.com/article/reading-wars-still-damage-many-children?cid=db_articles

    (If we are going to save the schools, this process has to start with real reading, basic math, and fundamental knowledge.)

      This type of teaching is in 48 states because they signed up for the Common Core Standards via programs like Race To The Top. Only Texas and Alaska declined the federal money with strings attached. But, they sneaked in through the back door in Texas with this same curriculum. The content is secret, teachers have gag orders, parents are not allowed access. In Texas, that is breaking the law. Texas lawmakers and State Board of Education are investigating. There are meetings for the public all over the state. Smaller school districts are on a program called CSCOPE. The larger school districts have made their own program that are just like the methods you describe.
      The same harmful teaching methods you describe are used for Math, Science and Social Studies. The main purpose of school, besides dumbing-down students, is for social engineering.

      This outcry in Texas about our hijacked public education is a Huge thing. There is not a word in the news about it.

    Well it is my opinion that the white parents should take a page from the black parents playbook and charge the principle with a violation of their child’s civil rights. What’s good for the goose certainly is good for the gander. Then the white parents should take another page from the black parents playbook and organize protests calling for the principle’s dismissal. Again, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Make no mistake about it people, when the black parents in this “wonderfully diverse” school heard about the initial program and the exclusion of white children, there was a collective, “how you like that, whitey”. I hope obama is proud of himself, and I say that because I would be willing to bet that this principle was using barry for his inspiration. Isn’t transparency wonderful?

    Wake up America, This is a program that was conceived just as the letter and the voice mail says. Unfortunately someone of non color could use the program and wanted to fnd out why thier child was being left out of a truely great program. Obviously the principal, a person of color, chose to illiminate children of non color. This leader of our children should be removed of his duties until such time that he can treat all children equally. We all know that if it was reversed and only children of non color was approved the principal would have been removed before it was brought out to the public. I do believe that this is a program that should be delivered to all our students, it is just a shame that certain people want only to give to minorities.

    I made a comment a couple of years ago that blacks were becoming their own worst enemy. This story is another fine example.

    Since we’re calling a spade a spade here, I will simply say it appears that the black principal knew for a fact that the black students would need much more than “normal” teaching. Was this an assumption of the principal that black students were slow learners?

      Agree, Jack, and the post above by ‘disgustedbyignorant people’ is a stellar example of your point. The action by this principal, who has now backed down and and expressed his “regret” for the exclusion comes as no surprise at all. I suspect someone in authority in the school system may have heard the word “lawsuit” and mandated the retraction. It also smacked of the stereotype that minority students are stupid and need tutoring while white students don’t.

    Not that I would expect anyone in a public school to necessarily know this fact (and yes I know that ‘persons of color’ refers to those with darker or non-white skin) BUT white is actually the presence of all colors in the spectrum and black is the absence of color.

      DNA changes slightly with migration, therefore it is possible to track the migration paths from modern mankind’s original source – East Central Africa.

      My forebears came from there, up through the Arabian Peninsula, across to Eastern Europe, into France where they ID’ed as Cro Magnon and ended up in Southern England.

      So Adam and Eve did exist about 55,000 years ago and we’re all brothers and sisters under the skin. Environment and diet make adaptive changes in color, size and bone structure, but we’re all out of the same stock. Japanese soldiers in WWII averaged about 5’2″ in height. Thanks to the war and Douglas MacArthur, young Japanese are at least 6″ taller and much healthier. Arguing over race and ethnicity is the world’s biggest and most dangerous waste of time and energy.

      toddyo, you bring up an interesting thought. If mankind started in East Central Africa are we really all black under the skin and are skin color and ethnic differences really nothing more than genetic drift?

      Hkaz are you kidding. Have you ever went thru the non white areas, it is hard to tax the dumps they make of the area. In Phx. we have to pay an extra tax to make up for the south side dumps per the federal government. Have been doing this for years to make things so called fair.

      Of course I am kidding. I just get so angry when school officials say they don’t have the money to do something.

      I live in Scottsdale and know about paying very high taxes that get “redistributed” to other schools. My daughter is in high school in Scottsdale and their books are falling apart and she has two classes that don’t have air conditioning in the rooms. (but the school is now spending millions to remodel the auditorium, but that’s a story for another day). Money set aside for certain operations can’t be moved to where they are needed.

      Being in Phoenix, you may have read Darrell Ankarlo’s book on illegals. He was able to determine that 25% of all of the K-12 students in the ENTIRE COUNTRY are illegals or children of illegals. That is burning up 25% of the school money for people who shouldn’t be here.

      My wife went to a meeting with Mayor Gordon to ask why they were building new schools while several were empty. No answer. He also couldn’t explain why he needed 2 assistants that made $250K each year and what they did.

      These progressive liberal union teachers always say they don’t have the money to do a proper teaching job when they have misspent the vast fortunes they have been given. California has 3 administrators for every teacher in the classroom, Tucson has 2, I’m not sure what it is in Phoenix but I would guess that it is more that 1:1.

      Until the teachers union is collapsed by vouchers or charter schools, our public school system will continue to be a vehicle to redistribute income and launder tax money for the Democrats.

      Hkaz that 25 percent probably cost more like 50 percent as most need all kinds of special help. In the Tuscon are they federal government more than doubled the cost due to programs for the Spanish only.

    When I was very young, I thought I would live to see the day when racism was a thing of the past. I was very idealistic. Now I know that racism is alive and well in America.

    When I say racism, I do not mean hatred of blacks by whites. I also mean hatred of whites by blacks. And I would extend that to any race or skin color.

    I always wondered about things like “Black history month.” February is the shortest month of the year. Does it mean that the rest of the months are white history months?

    If someone would propose an idea of “White history month” he would be crucified or laughed out of the country. But why is it any different. I will know that a step away from racism has been taken when all such nonsense is gone.

    I remember that HBO once had an animated series call “Fairy Tales for every child”. But more acurately the title should have been “fairy tales for every child except white children.” They took traditional European fairy tales and re cast them with the characters, all of color. And the characters were over the top stereotypes.

    This type of thing actually promotes racism.

    And while we are talking about such things, I remember hating the movie “Happy feet”. Although it was all penguins and birds etc. All the good guys had either black or Mexican accents (even though one of the Mexican voices was done by a white Robin Williams imitating a Mexican accent.) And all of the bad guys had English, Irish, or German accents. Subtle message to all the kids who enjoyed it was “White guys bad, everyone else good.” I could not believe the racism of this film.

    My childhood hope of seeing racism eliminated for the world, or at least in the U.S. are now dashed to bits. I will not see an end to racism in my life time.

    “…a wonderfully diverse school…” There’s the problem. When you hear “diversity” from the limited intelligence of the “progressive” that means racial, ethnic and even sexual preference.

    Just the opposite of what it should be. Consider the Declaration of Independence; “… endowed by our Creator…” True diversity is found in that endowment – the infinite range of gifts and talents of a people. The USA made it because it added the rare element – opportunity!

    As Luciferian weapons of spiritual warfare, diversity, political correctness, lying and mockery are at the front line.

    When we wake up and realize the nature of this battle between what Pope Benedict correctly calls “the Culture of Death” vs. “the Culture of Life”, perhaps we’ll begin to use or own far more formidable weapons to defeat “the accuser of the brethren.” I’m tired of playing in Saul Alinsky’s backyard with his thugs.

      I couldn’t agree more. When I hear “diversity” I see individuals placed in seperate groups that identify the differences between them and the individuals in other groups.

      We will have true diversity when we just include ever U.S. citizen in just one catagory: American. It will be a diverse and equal group. Isn’t that what the liberals say they are trying to achieve?

    Tell me, when the President singles out Blacks & Hispanics for special assistance, what of the students of other ethnicities who are trapped in failing schools?

    White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans

    Executive Order 13555 dated October 19, 2010
    White House Initiative On Educational Excellence For Hispanics
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2010/10/19/executive-order-13555-white-house-initiative-educational-excellence-hisp

    No one should be surprised at this racist in your face ploy. The liberals and minorities in the 60′s said they would win the war via education and changing peoples hearts and minds.

    They just did not tip their hand how it would be accomplished. The public schools from elementary to HS to college are beds of indoctrination now as they are 90% controlled by the liberals. Reverse discrimination is very alive and has been for years in the US and more is practiced by Obozo. That is why he wants Head Start programs to start at 4 years of age now. The same age the Nazi’s started their indoctrination training.

      I think and have said many times that the best thing we could do for education is to abolish the Department of education. Further we need to get central government completely out of the education business.

      Since they have taken over, the costs of education have skyrocketed, but more important is that the quality and nature of education has plummeted.

      It is a flaw in the ideology of socialism, that the goverment is to solve all the problems. Individualism is the opposite of collective socialism. Individualism treats all individuals as equals, and defuses all racism.

      The politicians will talk about “education,” but what they mean is always government controlled education.

      If you oppose them, they scream that you do not care about education, but in fact it is the exact opposite. If you really care about education you must oppose government control of education.

    Ah yes, reverse discrimation against white people never happens. That is, until the powers that be get caught red-handed engaging in the practice.

    Kind of like the mid nineties when I was harassed out of the Internal Revenue Service despite a stellar academic track record that included a master’s degree in accounting, along with maxing out on all of their classroom tax law exams. They handpicked a few of us targets from each office location and made our lives miserable for months until they finally terminated us; e.g., following us around on every assignment while scribbling notes, writing us up for any transgression they could think of, and etcetera. Oh that’s right, it wasn’t reverse discrimination, we just could not work independently and there was a long trail of “documentation” indicating all of our alleged mistakes. And other white males kept their jobs, so how could it be reverse discrimination? Excellent tactic I must say, handpicking a few of us from each location in order to camouflage the actual practice. I guess a bunch foreigners who speak broken English and unlike me, cannot run for president get federal job priority in this brave new world. No joke, in substance that was effecively the pecking order.

      I think you need to go back and do a little homework. I think we were going along just fine until reverse discrimination began about……25 years ago.

      In case you haven’t noticed, whites are no longer the majority, they are becoming the minority. Just as minorities are becoming the majority. In my view, they are no longer minorities rather they have become ‘ethnics.’ What should that preclude to…… reverse bullying?

      I have taught at a multi-cultural Jr. college. Another Jr. College 30 miles away was threatened with loosing their accreditation because they do not have enough ethnics. As a result, they do not get any funding or government aid for special programs. Do you really see that as fair?

      Ignorance is bliss my friend. If anyone is ignorant it is you….. We will only have peace if we accept each other for our differences. All ethnic groups including whites have gifts that they bring to the world. I don’t see acceptance happening as long as we humans play the ethnic blame game. In my opinion, it is primitive and unproductive. It only leads to derision and the conquest of the simple minded by the chess playing elites. I honestly don’t think you will understand this until it is to late? Sorry.

      You give a little man power and, wala, they can’t handle it…. They become like a pompous little emperor.
