Is now the normal focus of the Portland Schools. I guess they must have the only 100% graduation rate and every student the district gets a full ride to the Ivy League when they graduate to worry about shit like this. Why is White Privilege the reason why jaqueenshaq can't pass a fucking test? Why is White Privilege the reason why tamikqwashon can't do basic math? Why is White Privilege the reason why leroy tyron juaquine can't speak English?? WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO ASK FOR A PBJ ON A PITA TO BE INCLUSIVE? YOUR IN AMERICA AND WE EAT SANDWICHES. Are you fucking kidding me [h=1]Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich is Racist, Says Portland School Official[/h] by Nathan Harden - Fix Editor on November 21, 2013 Tweet Print This Post Did you know that eating or even talking about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could be considered racist? Thatâ€™s right. Apparently, itâ€™s because people in some cultures donâ€™t eat sandwich bread. Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland explained in and interview with the Portland Tribune: â€œTake the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year,â€ the Tribune said. â€œWhat about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?â€ Gutierrez asked. â€œAnother way would be to say: â€˜Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?â€™ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.â€ â€¦The Tribune noted that the school started the new year with â€œintensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,â€ to help educators understand their own â€œwhite privilege,â€ in order to â€œchange their teaching practices to boost minority studentsâ€™ performance.â€"Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation â€” to examine a news article and discuss the â€˜white privilegeâ€™ it conveys,â€ the Tribune added. Gutierrez completed a week-long seminar called â€œCoaching for Educational Equity,â€ a program the Tribune says focuses â€œon race and how it affects life.â€ She also serves on an administrative committee that focuses on systematic racism. â€œOur focus school and our Superintendentâ€™s mandate that we improve education for students of color, particularly Black and Brown boys,(IMAGINE IF A WHITE REPUBLICAN USED THOSE TERMS) willprovide us with many opportunities to use the protocols of Courageous Conversations in data teams, team meetings, staff meetings, and conversations amongst one another,â€ she said in a letter to staff. You can read more about principal Gutierrezâ€™s sandwich-sensitivity philosophy here. Next time youâ€™re in the bread aisle at the grocery store, you may want to think twice. Sensitive liberal educators are now recommending the â€œtortaâ€ or the â€œpitaâ€ as a more culturally inclusive alternative. Now that youâ€™ve been made aware of the evil of PB&J, thereâ€™s only one question left to answer: Is white bread more racist than whole wheat? Nathan Harden is editor of The College Fix.
