CA’s ‘Ethnic Studies’ Curriculum Praises Omar, Tlaib, Sarsour
A proposed new ethnic studies curriculum for children in California’s public high schools reads “like a manual for future left-wing activists,” according to Breitbart, and includes the study of such leftist radicals as anti-Semites Linda Sarsour (pictured), Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, as well as convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.
The curriculum encourages students to study such “social movements” as Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, and the LGBTQ movement. It is laden with “woke” language, such as “hxrstories” for “histories.”
The curriculum has drawn criticism even from the Los Angeles Times, which described it as “an impenetrable melange of academic jargon and politically correct pronouncements. It’s hard to wade through all the references to hxrstory and womxn and misogynoir and cisheteropatriarchy… [It] feels like an exercise in groupthink, designed to proselytize and inculcate more than to inform and open minds. It talks about critical thinking but usually offers one side and one side only.”
