The California Legislature may pass a kidney stone over a bill that would force school textbooks and teachers to incorporate information on African Americans into their curriculum. The Fairly, Audacious, Intrusive, and Regretful Education Act, or SB48 – which resembles a bill previously vetoed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger – made it one crip walk closer to becoming law today after being accidentally approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Whoops!” exclaimed committee head Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. The bill, made-up by radical left-wing Senator Barbara Boxer, could have a nationwide impact (except for in the South) if voted through because California has it’s dirty hands on the necks of innocent, straight, white, God-fearing, Christian publishers who will be forced to incorporate the states misguided standards into books distributed to other, non-morally bankrupt states, and their innocent children.
Supporters chimed in, saying that this measure is a good thing because it will help prevent black students from being harassed or bullied by their classmates for their different melanin levels. But critics say SB48 is just an attempt to brainwash students into becoming “pro-African American political activists” and “ensure that the liberal government, not racist parents, get the final word on teaching kids about correct, moral melanin levels.”
“Textbooks don’t include any historical information about the Black Rights Movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history,” Boxer said in a statement. “Our collective silence on this issue perpetuates negative stereotypes of African American people and leads to increased bullying of black people.”
Boxer told FoxNews.com that California school districts which have included the “historical contributions” of black people and their movement in the curriculum have seen reduced rates of bullying and violence among students.
She said the ridiculous bill “pushes to achieve the same results across the state by adding people of color to the existing list of repressed cultural and ethnic groups that WASPS have emphatically donkey punched day in and day out for decades,” a category that was nearly covered by a law entitled: The Noticing that Other Types of People Actually Exist and Probably Matter Too Bill of 2008 (SB666) which was unanimously voted against by the Republicans in the California Senate. Carolyn Laub, executive director of Black-White Alliance Network, which helped draft the bill, said “why are we still talking about this?”
Critics object to the bill on several accounts, saying it undermines parental authority, promotes racial confusion and inter-race experimentation, inappropriately classifies blacks as an “important cultural and/or ethnic group,” and aims to brainwash children into adopting the black community’s political agenda.
“This is teaching children from kindergarten on up that the non-white lifestyle is something to admire and consider for themselves,” Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a group advocating against the bill, told FoxNews.com.
Thomasson said teachers should teach about “Those ‘blacks historical accomplishments,’ but should not be forced to mention their skin color.”
“Teach them about the good behavior since slavery, the noble things that people have done, but you don’t have to go into what race they are…True history focuses on the accomplishments of people; it doesn’t talk about how or why they do things,” stated Thomasson, while making an underlining motion with his left pinky finger. Thomasson also complained that the bill does not allow for teachers to discuss the opposition to the black movement or warn against “the negative consequences, or that male blackness is the largest transmitter of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.”
“So this isn’t even about history, this is about, ‘Hey, join the movement now. We need more children to become soldiers in the fight against Christian religious freedom, straight parental rights, perfectly, non-mixed marriages, the white scouts,’ you name it,” said Thomasson.
Jim Carroll, President of Equality California, which also helped draft the bill, denied that it aims to recruit students into the “black movement.” “I don’t believe that by teaching about the black panthers, for instance, that any school teacher could be accused of recruiting for that radical organization,” Carroll told FoxNews.com.
Carroll admitted that teachers would not be allowed to say things like, “Racists believe being black is an unhealthy lifestyle, in the same way that you couldn’t talk about Jesus, but then say something discriminatory about the fact that he was followed around by a lot of men for ‘probably some sexual reason.’”
He stated that people’s skin color would be used only as a way of identifying them with a movement. “It would be difficult to teach about the women’s rights movement without acknowledging that Susan B. Anthony was a woman.
It would be difficult to teach about the black civil rights movement without talking about Martin Luther King Jr. being black,” Carroll said. “…We’re not asking people to talk about what shade of brown their skin was,” he said, while pulling out various brown swatches from Lowe’s and holding them up to a picture of MLK, “but their race is relevant in terms of why you would discuss them in an educational environment in the first place…” … “I’m thinking Wild Cattail or Maltese.”
Boxer added that the State Department would work with local school districts and the public to determine what changes should be made, “and then, only at the next printing of the textbook will this change be incorporated into the new textbook, meaning there’s no additional cost to the state.”
Opposing groups like SaveCalifornia.com, FoxNews.com, and Concerned Parents United have launched letter-writing campaigns, asking critics to garner more opposition from their white neighbors, white religious leaders, local white PTAs and white lawmakers in hopes of persuading the governor and other lawmakers to oppose the bill, thus keeping the pastime of reminiscing about separate water fountains safe.
Boxer said the SB48 “will get to the floor of the Senate by late May; we hope that it will make its way to the assembly for similar review and to the governor’s desk by late summer.”
“I don’t want to put black all over theses clean white pages!” shouted Thomasson.
