A Lecture from the Principal

Anonymous American, American Renaissance, June 5, 2022

This story is one of hundreds Colin Flaherty planned to publish in a book before his death. American Renaissance will post one a week.

I had to go to a Detroit school about 30 years ago for my job. I was in the vending business and most of the Detroit schools wanted machines to raise money for things like band uniforms and athletic equipment. When I got there, all the doors were chained shut. I walked around the school looking into windows trying to find the office. When I found it, I had to knock on the window and show them my business card and they sent a Detroit Police Officer to come and let me in the school. When I got into the school I had to go through a metal detector and the detectors were placed all over the school with cops guarding each one. When I finally got into the office, they took me to the Principal, and he sat me down and told me all about my white race. He told me how racist all white people are while he was showing me all the weapons they had caught just that day in his drawer (guns and knives) while we waited for the Head Teacher to come to the meeting.

When she got there she began to lecture me about white people as well. She claimed that white grocery stores pack up all their expired goods and ship them to the inner city for black people to eat. I was told how my race stole everything we ever had and that I had privilege because I was white. She claimed that every job was open to me but not to black people and that my ancestors owned slaves and we beat them, raped them, and killed them. I finally asked her, “Do you want to buy a vending machine or not?” On my way out the door I told her, “The reason black students fail is because of teachers like you and most of the parents are no better.”
