BLM - Both sides of the story
My concerns lie with the other side of the BLM movement that is not being shared. The hate filled, discriminative, violent protest groups that are causing more divide than unity amongst our community, even going as far as to support defunding our police.
Myself and MANY other parents believe that BLM has NO place in our schools and we will stand up against it.
BLM is a self proclaimed dangerous Marxist group that has very little evidence of supporting any local black inituatives at all.
A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” amongst other incredibly inappropriate comments.
This is not a peaceful movement.
Anyone who speaks up or out about BLM and how they are handling anti black racism gets labeled a racist and white supremacist and attacked, myself included.
People have been violently attacked (physically as well) for using the term All Lives Matter to promote unity. Now the DDSB suggests it would like to teach my kids to NOT say All Lives Matter and then try to explain to them that they don’t understand the term and are being insensitive, instead of realizing these kids/parents AREN'T RACIST and this is rediculous. Parents , like myself, raised their kids on ONE LOVE and they don’t see colour when it comes to helping anyone, unlike these disgusting ‘teaching tools’ suggest like the burning house analogy.
Please let us know how you plan to show ALL sides to the BLM movement to our communities so that people know 100% what it’s ALL about so they can make informed choices abouting support it and how it’s taught to our kids.
