I found this video a hoot and a half… It reminded me greatly of the one “Social Science” class I had back in the ’70s (I’m sure they are much worse now, but then it was substantially a “why men are evil, whites are horrible, and everyone must hate them” class.) I’d, mistakenly, expected something more akin to Cultural Anthropology… OTOH, it did prepare me for a lifetime of “cultural assault” from “others” for being both white and male. I knew where they had been indoctrinated, why the crap was flowing so deep and fast, and that there was nothing at all ever I could do to “fix it”. No amount of “sucking up” to it would ever make me acceptably non-male and non-white. So, armed with that understanding, I could simply confront it as Bull Shit and move on.
At one “Company Mandated Indoctrination Session” at Apple, we were all required to have ‘sensitivity training’. While the instructor was in full “evil whites training mode” pointing out all the injustices done by White Men to “minorities” I had the joy of sticking up my hand during Q/A and bringing up my Irish Ancestors and the historical discrimination heaped on them with “no Irish need apply” signs in windows in New York City as they got off the boat… and asked just why I as a historically discriminated group with “indentured servant” being only theoretically different from “slave” ought to feel guilt or pay reparations? (“Black Slave Reparations” being one of the topics). It was fun to watch the collective heads spin ;-)
Common Core is infested with crap like “social justice in math problems”, so I found their use of math as the example in the video particularly fun. The Common Core attempt to turn math into an English Essay on Social Issues just harms all the Asian and Hispanic kids who had poor English skills, but could excel in math class where it was not English… Oh Well.
With that, here’s the video:
