Tutoring in Denver: Students of Color ONLY!

As we strive for a truly colorblind society, it’s quite apparent that the ones who hold us back are the ones who scream the loudest about equality. Those on the left blast those on the right, because we just want to recognize people for what they do, not what skin color they have. But, just as Barack Obama plays the race card over and over again, we have another example to point-out. This time, it’s an elementary school in 60x60_politicsDenver that offers a tutoring program… unless you are white.

As reported by Denver’s CBS 4, the tutoring program at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora has come under fire, because it was not designed, nor did it welcome, all kids. If your child was white and needed tutoring, you were out of luck.

Here are the comments from one of the parents:

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.
Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.
“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said.

wake-up-americaThe school district is blaming the principal for this program, but how could it have even gotten this far? Nobody spoke up at all?

We believe it is at this point when most Caucasian parents or guardians have angst and trepidations for fear that they’ll be the person’s elected as racists or victims of reverse discrimination. Many parents, after viewing the principal’s letter most likely would have said nothing and tried other services for their children.

This is breathtaking in its stupidity. Is it such a hard concept to help a child… period? Does there always need to be an emphasis put on race? Just stop it now!

Most likely due to the negative reaction and outrage from parents, the principal has now “clarified” his remarks in a new letter. Despite the fact that the initial announcement stated the tutoring program was only available to children “of color,” the principal now says it’s open to all.

The letter reads in part, “I want to express my regret for the communication sent last Friday describing the PASS tutoring program.”

It also states, “… the tutoring program is open for all students, regardless of race/ethnicity, and on a first come, first served basis. As your child’s principal, I am equally concerned about the success of all students who attend our wonderfully diverse school.”

Regret for the “communication?” How about regret for a program designed to exclude certain children!

The following are actual comments made by various writers, parents, and concerned citizens;

Discrimination against whites by minority officials is not new. Minorities in positions of power sometimes brazenly discriminate against whites because they have an ax to grind and are not held to the same standard as whites when discrimination is the issue. Some minorities, especially blacks believe that they cannot be guilty of discrimination, only discriminated against. This is an outrageously stupid mindset stoked up by the Progressive movement.

And is there any formal disciplinary action for this principal? If this policy was communicated as a program for ‘whites only’ the principal would quite possibly be sued or even fired. A full investigation is in order. How can they get away with only a ‘new communication’ when our tax money was planned to be used for only certain students based on their race. Name, address, particulars removed.

The use of the word “other” in his lead means all, white, black, brown, yellow, red, green (why not?), are all “minorities.” But the principal’s letter means that “white” students are not persons of “color” since, to him, white is not an acceptable “color.” It’s sure good we’ve put all this racial “stuff” behind us now!

To confirm the existence of a double standard in institutionalized racism, examine the United Negro College Fund. This institution has been around for many years. The charter is very clear, college aid for black students only. What would happen to a similar institution if aid was limited only to white students? Name, address, particulars removed.
