A Washington elementary school canceled Halloween festivities to protect black kids from feeling left out and being marginalized by the celebration, KTTH reports.
Students at Benjamin Franklin Day Elementary in Seattle will no longer be able to wear a costume to the Halloween-themed parade because of a decision made by something called the Racial Equity Team.
“Historically, the Pumpkin Parade marginalizes students of color who do not celebrate the holiday,” a Seattle Public Schools (SPS) spokesperson told the Jason Rantz Show.
“Specifically, these students have requested to be isolated on campus while the event took place,” the spokesperson added. “In alliance with SPS’s unwavering commitment to students of color, specifically African American males, the staff is committed to supplanting the Pumpkin Parade with more inclusive and educational opportunities during the school day.”
According to a newsletter sent to parents Friday, students will participate in “thematic units of study about the fall” and review “autumnal artwork” while “sharing all the cozy feelings of the season.”
Sounds like the usual bunch of brain dead liberal gobbledy gook to me.
David Malkin, who has a 7-year-old enrolled in the school, slammed the move as another “exercise in affluent white vanity that is wokeism.”
“I don’t see any way in which this actually addresses any inequities to the extent that there are any inequities,” Malkin, who is Asian, told host Jason Rantz Monday. “You know, this just seems like grandstanding on behalf of the principal and the staff who are predominantly white.”
The Racial Equity Team said it took them five years of trying to succeed in the cancellation of Halloween, saying this is only the beginning of long needed school reforms.
Gee, I wonder which holiday they’ll cancel next year?
