Seattle is one of the most liberal cities in America and touts having the nation’s first openly socialist city council member, but the actions of a group of elementary teachers is taking things to a whole other level.
Teachers at John Muir Elementary plan to wear Black Lives Matter t-shirts in class next Friday so they can start a conversation about trumped-up racial oppression in the classroom, KING 5 reported.
“To be silent would be almost unforgivable, and I think we have been silent for almost too long,” said third grade teacher Marjorie Lamarre.
With the support of the White House, schools have become fertile ground for race activists, as seen here: Obama has allowed BLM, black power agenda to fundamentally transform American schools – we have proof
The teachers are wearing t-shirts designed by fellow teacher Jennifer Whitney in support of the violent anti-cop movement that has inspired the assassination of at least nine police officers this year.
The shirts read: “Black Lives Matter, We Stand Together” with the schools name underneath.
KING 5 reported that Whitney’s goal is to start conversations about race and the high incarceration rates among people of color, in contrast to low college graduation rates.
“It is part of the oppression, the systemic oppression that continues on,” Whitney told the NBC affiliate.
Keeping in mind that the average age of a third grader is 8–9 years old.
Reasonable minded Americans might expect administrators to step in and put a stop to the madness, but, given that this is Seattle, they would miss their mark with that assumption.
A spokesperson for the Seattle Public School District told KING 5 that the district fully supports what the teachers are doing.
