A local school in Texas gave students an assignment that compared cops to both slave owners and KKK Members. This is not the first time that extreme political bias has been taught exposed in public schools and it certainly isn’t something that is uncommon. More from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
Wylie ISD, a school district north of Dallas, is under fire after some students were given an assignment including a political cartoon that compared police officers to slave owners and KKK members.
The assignment, which school officials say was unauthorized, showed a five-panel cartoon that started with a slave ship officer with his knee on a Black man’s neck and ended with a police officer with his knee on a Black man’s neck while he said, “I can’t breathe.”
The incident comes after George Floyd’s death from a white Minneapolis officer kneeling on his neck sparked protest across the country calling for the defunding of police and the ending of systemic racism.
As political tensions only grow worse in the country it is unclear how bad things will get before they get better. There have always been criticisms of politics in public schools and accusations are always flying that these schools are moving to push Democrat politics on young people, its stories like these that reinforce that narrative.
