A middle school history teacher in small-town southeastern Michigan has been placed on paid administrative leave because he informed students that white entertainers used to paint their faces black to imitate black people and showed kids a video about it. The teacher is Alan Barron, reports the Monroe News. The suspension occurred after an assistant principal observed Barron teaching an eighth-grade class.
Teacher suspended for telling the truth about American history and even called a racist for doing so. I’m glad the parents oppose the suspension. Why do people get punished for telling the truth?
"The unidentified assistant principal concluded that Barron’s lesson about how entertainers used to be racist was itself racist"
^^^ This is literally one of the oldest tricks in the book for keeping one’s people as ignorant as possible. Why are people so good at repeating history?
