Somebody sent me the following YouTube video. He’s involved with this school and is very proud of it. While I agree with many of the explicit statements made in the video, there is also an undercurrent of lies and propaganda. Yes, it’s important to know your students in order to teach them well. Yes, it’s important for people to get along regardless of their backgrounds. Yes, mutual respect and scholastic achievement are important.
But the first, and primary, boast that’s made about this school is that it’s “majority minority”. I suppose that, together with the fact that most of its students are eligible for free lunches (I.E. poor), this is to emphasize the impact of their accomplishment. But Asians are also considered “minorities”. If we exclude Asians from the school’s academic credentials, how would it fare? We are not told how well “African-Americans” are doing. We are not told the details of the Hispanic students either.
Furthermore, if it’s boast-worthy to have a school that’s “majority minority” and successful, then clearly this is not the norm (and it’s not) – so why should we be hastily transforming the entire country into “majority minority”? Wouldn’t it make more sense to allow it to remain “majority majority”?
We can see that there is a “black student union”. We are told that “African-Americans”, Hispanics, Asians etc. are made to feel proud of who they are. There is no indication that white students merit the same treatment. Apparently the only pride they are permitted to harbor is that of their own individual achievements.
We are shown several frames prominently featuring black boys with white girls. As far as I could tell, there are no similar frames featuring white boys with black girls.
The “diversity” that the producers take so much joy in is doomed from the start. If each of those communities maintains its traditions and distinctions, then what sort of country will we have in a hundred years? It will certainly not be a nation; it will be, at best, a confederacy of nations. At worst, it will be a bloody mess with each group at each others’ throats for the same pieces of government pie. If history is any guide, harmony will not be the result. Strife will be the result.
If those communities melt into each other, and lose their distinctiveness, then “diversity” will have turned out to be a fleeting luxury, followed by blandness.
Watching this video is a lot like playing a hidden object game. Average viewers can only see the general picture. They cannot see the hidden meaning. With training, the hidden messages become painfully obvious.
Here’s the video:
