Suburban Chicago School Teaches ‘Blackenomics,’ ‘Trans-Rights,’ and ‘White Genocide Against Blacks’
A suburban Chicago high school is taking the Obama education agenda all the way with new classes and seminars that teach kids that whites are committing “genocide” against blacks, that America is violating the “rights” of transgender Americans, that whites are suppressing the voting rights of blacks, and a long list of other far-left activist ideas.
The high school in question is New Trier High School, which is the only school in a high school-only public school district which serves the lakefront areas of north suburban Cook County north of Evanston but south of the northern boundary of the county. Very much uptown. So you can probably figure out the rest. It’s probably the best open enrollment geography-delimited public high school in the country.
The list of notable alumni of the school is so extensive and lofty that it has its own Wikipedia page, apart from the page for the school in general. And as you read the list, there’s a whole lot of who’s-who. Charlton Heston, Rahm Emanuel, Mark Kirk. Chuck Knight, a business figure that any St. Louisan who can read has heard of, is an alumnus.
So what’s all this social justice mess about? New Trier peddles it for the same reason why extremely expensive Manhattan private schools peddle it. They’re not teaching their students how to be guilty, they’re teaching future people that matter how to wield and exercise power, to grow and preserve their own power, by means of bafflegabbery. That, and in the case of New Trier, because it’s so good and so fattened by the district’s real estate and property tax realizations, and in the same county as Chicago, and the CPS, and its many fine public secondary schools on the south and west sides, New Trier is always an easy target, and one that puts out. All their SJW claptrap is PR to shut the blacks up. You know how that goes: “We love ya, man, but from a distance.”
