Teacher suspended for teaching class historical truth.

This is a story from Boggart Blog’s you Couldn’t Make It Up desk:

Despite support by parents and students – both black and white – a Michigan middle school teacher has been placed on “administrative leave” for teaching that in the 1800s and early 1900s some white entertainers performed in blackface.

Al Jolson never existed according to the politically correct education system. And don’t even mention The Black and White Minstrel Show

from Breitbart.com

History teacher Alan Barron of Monroe Middle School, Monroe, Michigan, was forced out of his classroom only weeks before he was set to retire after a 36-year teaching career. The suspension came after an administrator sitting in on the class objected to a video of blackface performers from the turn of the last century.

No black student, no white student, nor any parents ever complained about the topic, but Barron, who is also a Monroe Township Supervisor, was taken out of the classroom pending an investigation by the district.

In fact, not only did one black student find nothing offensive about the topic, but she and her parents came to the support of the teacher saying that he was only relaying factual history.

Adrienne Aaron, whose daughter is in Barron’s class, said the girl, “was more offended that they stopped the video. It had nothing to do with [modern] racism. History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we’ve come in America. How is that racism?”

Problem is this kind of stupidity, like the stupidity of sheeple who responded to Labour party propagandists neo Nazi efforts to brand the libertarian political United Kingdom Independence Party as racist but only succeeded in boosting support for UKIP, makes western nations look ridiculous to people the those parts of the world where traditional social values are still upheld, as this video from Russia Today demonstrates.

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984

  1. So now these pupils have been denied the skills of an excellent and experienced teacher. Would he have been labelled anti-Semitic for showing pictures of the Holocaust? It’s hard to find any kind of sense in these knee-jerk reactions from do-gooding morons.

    • George Orwell had a few things to say about this kind of situation:
      “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
      “Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
      George Orwell

      It certainly seems that over in Obamaland The Emperor Obama is getting close to declaring telling the truth a criminal act.
