With the progressive communist democrats screaming about systemic racism and the need to introduce critical race theory into our K-12 schools, one might have thought they were, once again, in favor of segregation.

Just like the good old days, when the Democrats were about slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws, and opposed to civil rights legislation, we see the Democrats pretending to fight racism with more racism.

Consider Centennial Elementary School in Denver, Colorado, who thought it would be an excellent idea to racialize their playground so the activists could organize and associate.


When the subject of segregation was raised, school officials were quick to defend their actions…

"Our school leaders met with some of the black families whose children attend our school to determine ways for these families to feel more included in our school community," a Denver Public Schools spokesperson said in a statement.

"Some of these families shared with us that, since the only time many of them see one another is at drop-off and pick-up times, we host some events where black families can meet one another, connect with one another, and share their experiences about the school with one another. We are honoring their request."

The event is part of the district's effort and commitment to foster and preserve inclusion and belonging, the statement said.

"All families are welcome to attend all of our events, and families from a variety of backgrounds have done so."

But is this an adequate explanation when we see race highlighted on the school’s website?


Especially when we see Marxist iconography such as a raised fist on an official communication?


Community Equity Collective

In this first session,  we will introduce the Equity Book Study and Equity Discussions which will alternate each month.  We will be meeting the first Wednesday of every month.  The book we will be reading this year is How We Show Up: Reclaiming Family, Friendship and Community, by Mia Birdsong, which we will discuss in November, January, March and May. In alternating months, we will discuss another resource, topic or equity-related theme. This first month, we will focus on getting to know each other and learning about how we can contribute to equity at Centennial.

[OCS: As might be expected, Mia Birdsong is a Black activist whose work on economic inequality, race, gender and building community is steeped in Marxist ideology and rhetoric.]

From the publisher…

From Occupy to Black Lives Matter to the various marches and protests, we have had some powerful moments over the last decade that have galvanized and created new, but brief, feelings of community. Many of us, however, haven't figured out how to spark that feeling on our own, or how to build off or sustain those moments. We are longing for a kind of sugar-borrowing and stoop-sitting closeness we imagine existed in the 50s.

In How We Show Up, community visionary Mia Birdsong delivers a compelling, timely understanding of what true, authentic family and community can look like -- outside of the 2-parent, 2.5 kids norm we all have in our heads. Today we have more single parents, couples who raise children outside of marriage, and more people growing older alone. Tackling topics like creating safe spaces, creativity in community, raising children in community, and more, How We Show Up is the antidote to the social fractures we face in our nation today. By sharing stories and actionable advice, and taking cues from marginalized communities--people of color, women, LGBTQ -- Mia Birdsong offers us the blueprint we need to build true community wherever we are.

Families of Color Playground Night

The Families of Color Playground Night will be Oct 13th, right after school until 5:45, on the WEST playground. It will continue to be the 2nd Wed. of the month (Nov 10, Dec 8), at school, outside, as long as weather permits.  At that point it will be virtual, and probably later in the evening.

[OCS: How many productive adults can visit the playground between the close of school and 5:45? It should like this is targeted for the child pick-up crowd rather than all parents.]

From the Denver school district...

Denver Public Schools remains committed to fostering. cultivating, and preserving a culture of inclusion and belonging. whe<e our students, families, and team members are safe and welcomed. We are here to meet the needs of all of our families and students. The school leaders at Centennial received a specific request from families to create a space of belonging. Centennial was responsive to their request

We support efforts like this as they provide connections, support, and inspiration for families which share similar experiences and come from similar backgrounds. Efforts like these are about uniting us, not dividing us.

Bottom line…

It is time to demand the removal of racial and sexual indoctrination from our schools and return to historical subjects like reading, writing, mathematics, history, civics, and of course, standard English.

It is also time to quit using activist materials that are essentially manuals of divisive behaviors to promote activists who are down with the revolution.

We are so screwed.
