Here’s a little more wisdom from my daughter’s State of Minnesota-certified, Minnesota Federation of Teachers accredited teacher:
Whitey <3 Meth!: Said the teacher, “If meth didn’t exist, there would be no drug law reform, because white peole do meth, and the goverment doesn’t want white people in jail”. Didn’t they say the same thing about cocaine 25 years ago?
Dumb Cops: Speaking in a cornpone accent: “I don’t know, man, I”m just here to beat up black people”, even though, said the teacher, the cop has no ideas what the laws are. Not to say cops are infallible – far from it – but a top-to-bottom racist conspiracy? Hm.
Slavery Altered The Physical World: “Hurricanes follow the path of the slave ships”, apparently as God’s punishment for slavery. Apparently hurricanes were mostly found in the North Sea before the 1400s as vengeance for the Vikings? I dunno.
Slavery Altered Evolution: “Sharks, to this day, folow the route of the slave ships”, as a matter of evolutionary adaptation; according to the teacher, sharks “evolved” to live in the subtropical trade wind zone because of the centuries of slaves being tossed overboard from slave ships (as opposed to, y’know, because the sub-tropics are crawling with aquatic life?)
Anyone but me thinking “Hey, good thing he’s not teaching them Intelligent Design? Whew!”?
