WATCH NOW. A fight for the American Dream that Ibram Kendi opposes.

Boston Parent Coalition v. The Boston School Committee 21-cv-10330-WGY
Apr 6, 10 AM ET
ID: 161 347 3844
Passcode: 575685
The lawyer for Boston schools is just taking the lazy argument “because of COVID they could not give the test.” What a cop out! It’s pure anti-Asian racism to use zip code quotas as a proxy for racial balancing.

“Wait wait,” the judge says.

He calls out her BS.
You can’t make this up. The Boston Schools lawyer talks about “the Chinatown zip code” and mocks the plaintiffs, mostly Asian families. Her defense just reeks of anti-Asian prejudice. You have to watch her weird disdain of the “Chinatown zip code.” It’s shocking
The lawyer for @SidleyLaw is making a joke of an argument that the judge keeps having to interrupt. Her name is Doreen Rachael and Sidley Austin is making a portfolio of defending school districts acting racist in the name of “equity.” It’s horrifying to witness.

Tale of two headlines.

White man kills Asian women --> "White supremacy" "haunting" "Asian Americans"

Two Black girls kill an Asian Muslim man --> "The girls" "assaulted" an "Uber Eats driver" with a Taser, "which led" to "an accident" "in which" "he was fatally injured"
There seem to many people who don’t understand something very simple: consistency. If you are going to make every issue in society about race, then *you* don’t get to chose what is about race and what isn’t.
PS Your threats + slurs don’t scare me. Been there. Heard that.
Welcome to the ethical immorality and incongruence of critical race theory activists and ideologues. Where does “sand eater” fit in their “oppression matrix” that promotes a new racial hierarchy in society? Between “bitc*” and “pu**y.”

Sacramento @officialSCUSD promotes an “anti-racist classroom,” @DrIbram + his divisive critical race theory, which dismisses Asians as “white adjacent.”

A teacher just used “slant eyes” to depict “Chinese” and “Japanese” people.

Let me chronicle why this is no coincidence.👇🏽
“If your eyes go up, you’re Chinese,” teacher Nicole Burkett said, stretching her eyes out + upwards. “If they go down, they’re Japanese. If they’re just straight, you don’t know.”

Here is the original video, recorded by a student during online learning:
Is this some racist school district? I did a simple Google search of Sacramento school district and racism....and like school districts around the country, last June 2020, it announced "racial and social justice supports" after George Floyd's death.…

2-1 The Supreme Court of Pakistan has ruled to free Omar Sheikh, Fahad Naseem, Salman Saqib and Sheikh Adil in Danny Pearl’s kidnapping and murder.

Will America move to extradite Omar Sheikh? @POTUS @TheJusticeDept @State_SCA @GovChristie @jaketapper
I’m in shock. What a betrayal. How could you let this this happen on your watch @ImranKhanPTI? First Danny Pearl is murdered on your soil. And now justice is slain.

How can this be @sufisal?
