While preparing to send your children off to public school this week, be aware that there is now a group called Black Lives Matter at School.
In New York City schools the group is having a “week of action,” in fact, encouraging a “lifetime of practice” on 13 guiding principles, including embracing homosexuality and transgenderism, according to a story by the New York Post.
Apparently those are now the values of black Americans.
The BLM at School’s home page prominently features an inspirational quote from Assata Shakur, a former Black Panther who fled prison in 1979. She was serving a life term for the execution-style slaying of a New Jersey law enforcement officer. She is also the godmother of the late rapper Tupac Shakur and is still wanted by the FBI with a $1 million reward. She was the first woman ever named as a “Most Wanted Terrorist” and is considered armed and dangerous.
What an example of academic prowess for the young.
“It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win,” says the quote from Shakur, who was a member of the radical Black Liberation Army when New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster was “shot and killed execution-style at point-blank range” at a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.
“We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains,” the quote reads.
The final sentence about “our chains” is a reference to a key line in “The Communist Manifesto,” written in 1848 by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Black Lives Matter is an openly Marxist organization.
New York City’s teachers union voted in November for the BLM week, although schools may choose how they observe it.
