    teach three cultural studies courses at a brand-new middleschool that will overwhelmingly serve minority students.

    Rutherford B. Gaston Middle School — named after the city’s first blackprincipal — will open in a few short weeks. It’s the first middle school in the immediate, poverty-ridden vicinity since 1979.

    The protesters are unhappy because the school has chosen to hire Peter Beck, aperson with white skin, over other, unidentified candidates, The Fresno Bee reports.

    Beck will teach African-American studies, Latino studies and Southeast Asian studies. . . .

    . . .“We’re just saying what the community wants,” said Rev. Karen Crozier, oneof the activists. “We didn’t fight for a white male or female teacher to educate our babies.”

    Crozier, who appears to be a professor at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, also suggested that a white person cannot teach minority children in this instance because of racism. . . .

    Rest assured they can. They simply have to be a white woman with very specific traits. I had an openly Communist (or whatever she claimed to be) white female teacher for a university elective course on race.


    -She has to be at least six feet tall without heels. Don't ask why. I don't know why.

    -She has to be profusely good looking. We're talking every minority in the room can passively giver her a "Well she's no doubt spoiled and clueless, but I'd def tap that so I'll play along" pass

    -She has to be naturally blonde. Don't ask me why. I don't know why. A dark haired white women is never getting away with teaching this class.

    -She has to have straight hair. Curls will not do. I don't know why.

    -She has to be emotional at all times. Objectivity plays no role in.. anything in this class. You will be given "Emotional reflection time slots" in every class whenever she has a particularly strong emotional lapse which is often

    -She has to have long blonde hair. Again I don't know the reasons for this, but she does.

    Its both of these options.

    Race is not a factor on a person's competency to teach anything.

    Making the race of a teacher an issue is in itself racist.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    "Racism", "racist", "bigot", "hater", "Nazi" ad nauseum, is usually screeched out by the minorities or shabbat goyim at the white people who refuse to become part of the herd and choose to think for themselves.
    Deal with it because all you who call me a racist are hypocritical haters yourselves. the truth and facts know no religion, race or culture: it merely IS due to Natures Laws.

    I can understand why Black folks in this community would want to have a Black person teaching a cultural studies class. A Black teacher would likely be able to relate to the predominately Black student population than a White teacher in this particular field. However, I think the Black community would be doing themselves a dis-service by maintaining the notion that only a Black teacher can teach cultural studies to a minority student body. Anyone seen Freedom Writers, for example? Wasn't exactly the same thing, but it showed that a White (female) teacher could successfully teach a culturally diverse group of high school kids.

    What comes inherent with a teacher who identifies with the race that the course focuses on is genuine experience of being that race. The knowledge will not be purely text based if an African is teaching African studies.
    So you admit to your own cultural bias and that is valid. But it is on the face of it a little 'off' to project that onto others.

    I as a white woman can be perfectly qualified to teach issues primarily affecting men just as a man can be perfectly qualified to teach women's studies. Maybe a man isn't able to speak from the same experience as a woman, but he can certainly also provide a different perspective that a female would not likely have. I have probably learned more 'cultural studies' from reading people like William Raspberry, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele, Starr Parker, et al, and what I mostly learned is how skewed and prejudicial is some of the teaching coming from the so-called civil rights leaders and advocates, and how badly some of those have distorted the black experience in America.

    At the same time can a black man fully understand how difficult it can be for a white person to know the 'right thing to say' or relate to a racist black person or other minority group? And is a black person raised among racists and fully ingrained with a victim/oppressed point of view and militant attitudes capable of understanding that the person who treats all people and same and uses the same language to talk to everybody is truly non racist despite being politically incorrect?
