I am so sick of hearing about racism.  All it does is divide people.  If you dont want racism, dont talk about race.  It just divides people.  If I see someone with a "black lives matter" tshirt I just go the other direction.  I dont need that drama.  If I look at that person the wrong way Ill be called a racist, a "ken" or whatever the trendy term is.

Which DeVoss and her fellow travelers are trying to do, but you Libs just keep interrupting the process. How do you expect these poor teachers to get kids heads in the "right" place if you keep filling them full of this hippy crap? Sheesh...

I honestly can't tell if you're joking or if you're that abysmally, hopelessly f*cking stupid.

Blacks and Whites are going to have disagreements and fights, most are just life and not racism, but according to the left, is all racism. SMH.

That depends on the definition of racism you're teaching them about. Just skip the "all white people are racist", "minorities can't be racist", the whole "Original Sin" of racism and all associated bullshiat.

Parents can't be relied upon to teach their kids accurately or consistently about racism.

Unfortunately everyone experiences a bias - we live in nations of millions of people yet in our entire lifetimes we only ever meet maybe 80,000 people - we can't possibly be expected to form a full picture from experience of what any other race is like in reality, so we take the small experiences we have and extend them out to cover all people we designate as similar. i.e. assume all black people have traits linked to the interactions we already know of.

Obviously that isn't right, since we're all individuals, not some hive-mind collective and kids need to understand that it's normal and natural to form biases, but that you can't just act on those animal instincts.
