Teachers Union Deal: ‘Special Consideration Shall Be given to Non-Christians,’ Racial Minorities

Robby Soave, Daily Caller, March 19, 2014

A teachers union contract for a Michigan school district that was initially extended until the year 2017 specifically discriminates against Christians, white people and men in the very text of the deal.

The details of the Ferndale Public Schools contract, which were first reported by the Mackinac Center’s Capitol Confidential, establish that non-Christians, racial minorities and women received special priority in hiring decisions.

“Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith,” reads the text of the contract.

After inquiries made by The Mackinac Center and The Daily Caller, the district has opted to immediately remove the language from their contracts. A spokesperson for the district told TheDC that the language was “antiquated.”

“We were able to submit this language to legal counsel and it is being removed from the contracts,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “The district does not discriminate.”

As written, it seemed likely that the contract violated several laws. Michigan voters passed a constitutional amendment prohibiting the consideration of race in public contracts and university admissions. {snip}

The contract’s special treatment for non-Christians may be even more obviously problematic. The Federal Civil Rights Act—as well as Michigan’s own civil rights law—prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of religion.

    Why did they have to mention women? They’ve long since taken over the teaching racket.

    • sbuffalonative

      Very true. In the US, 87% of teachers in grade school are women. How are women an oppressed minority in the teaching profession?

      These people are so delusional they can’t even see reality.

      • connorhus

        I wonder where the “Pigford” disparate impact law suit is against the entire nation for White Men who so much as thought about getting into an education career is? We could call it EDford and make it a group title whatever law suit…. Oh wait there isn’t a title number for White Men is there?

    • saxonsun

      You are wrong. Teachers have traditionally been women and that’s why they were paid so poorly.

      • thomas edward

        Teachers shouldn’t be paid much. first, they’re mostly women and secondly, they don’t produce a tangible product we can see, touch and has weight such as let’s say, a chair or something useful.

    • kikz

      ahem.. they generally.. don’t bugger our young children when we’re not looking…. however, that as a societal given is fading somewhat in recent years…although pedo’s are statistically more over male…sorry……

    • LHathaway

      Women may be most teachers. . but nothing stops the women-as-victims racket. It’s more sacred than apple pie and the 4th of July. It you’re a white women, perhaps it’s a license to do anything. When it comes to ‘being the nations conscience’ that’s something meant to be instilled in men.

  • Diversity Fatigue

    They may have removed the language but it is still understood — White men need not apply. They could have saved some ink by just writing that.

    • Andross

      More specifically, non-Jewish white men need not apply. Why do you think they specify Christian?

      • Xerxes22

        Ferndale only has twenty thousand people. It would be fairly easy for a small group of radicals to take over their teacher’s union. I would love to see a list of their union officers. I’ll bet there are no White Christians in that group, just a bunch of racist Blacks and red diaper babies.

    “As written, it seemed likely that the contract violated several laws.”


    • sbuffalonative

      It ‘seems’ they got caught.

  • connorhus

    So basically they could have just said it gives special consideration to everyone but “White, Christian, Men” and said the exact same thing. See even when the government discriminates against 1 particular group they have to waste more resources than needed to accomplish their goal.

  • Truthseeker

    These people know full well that their “minority” status gives them an advantage. Most “minorities” will openly say that they’re aware of that fact. Unless more of these allegedly “disadvantaged” groups start speaking out against these kinds of “special consideration,” well…we whites won’t have much of an option except to assume they want to keep us down and have no interest in the unified trans-ethnic state that America is supposedly intended to be. I mean…that couldn’t possibly be the case, could it?

  • sbuffalonative

    “The district does not discriminate.”

    They sure as heck tried to.

  • There is power in numbers. As nonwhites increase, they increasingly ignore the law and do what they want to. That’s why white men and women have a moral imperative to have white babies, and lots of them. If you say you can’t afford babies, ask yourself where that’s going to lead in the long run.

    • So CAL Snowman

      The questions I keep coming back to in these sick times are: WHY does it matter? What do we care if our race continues on or not after we die? What is there left to save anyway? Do we really want to bring our precious White children into a world that wants to destroy them?

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Human beings evolved to pass on their genes and white people are no exception. It’s in our best interests to survive and to do everything in our power to ensure that this happens; it would be irrational to go against white ethnic genetic interests, at least from a neo-Darwinian perspective.

        Whites are obligated to future generations of whites because time of birth is not a morally relevant consideration. According to classical utilitarian ethics, we should maximize the general happiness, not only for ourselves, but for future generations of whites. This means providing for their needs and ensuring that they can provide for themselves by leaving them with a sustainable world. Because whites are obligated to provide a sustainable environment for future white people, whites should do everything in their power to drive the non-white foreigners out of America and Europe before making white babies.

      • Malgus

        A valid question, if a bit defeatist.

        Bring children into a world that wants them destroyed? Yes. Give them a fighting chance, a say in the matter.

        If the whole world wanted you and yours obliterated from the earth, would you go out of your way to help them do it? Or would you fight teeth and claws, the knife to the hilt, to prevent it?

        To quote a certain movie – “Sparta will need sons.”

      • wildfirexx

        I can understand your frustration, and willingness to give-in to this seamlessly never ending assault on our people!
        Yes, it seems every time we try to stand up for our distinct racial identity, we are accused of discrimination or racism, while other races and ethnic nationalists are encouraged to celebrate their differences.
        Many white people (and people of other colors) have been brain-washed into thinking white nationalism is a sin, and only Diversity and multiculturalism can save us from this evil. We’ve become so obsessed with white guilt, that we are oblivious to what’s right and wrong anymore.
        But the real evil in this world are those who promote white ethnic cleansing as the final solution…through birth control, third world immigration and inter-marriage with whites.
        But to Deny our future generation ( european white race) the right to exist, because we won’t be around after we die is in itself selfish and evil.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Whites should focus on getting rid of America’s 3rd world invaders, before they worry about having babies. This is because whites are K-selected and 3rd world peoples tend to be r-selected, which means that whites, because they are a more evolved subspecies, will never be able to match the non-white fertility rate. Mass 3rd world immigration is also making it increasingly difficult for whites to secure decent livelihoods for themselves and have access to affordable housing, putting downward pressure on the white fertility rate because it forces whites to indefinitely postpone starting families. Further, given the maximum carrying capacity of the land, a rapidly growing population of 3rd world immigrants imposes a ceiling on the potential growth of the white population.

      If we want to secure a future for white children, it’s imperative that we provide them with a safe, clean, wholesome environment, free of multicultural propaganda and the dangers that come with endless, massive 3rd world invasion. This involves driving the elite from power and getting rid of the non-white foreigners. After, we can have all the white babies we want.

      • Respectfully disagree. We can’t control certain things, but we can control our own fertility. The argument that whites shouldn’t have children until we can afford them or that we should have fewer but high quality children is propaganda foisted off on us by the enemies of our people. Yes, we must fight to rid ourselves of the invaders, but we may fail at that task, or it may take 100 years. Right now, this moment, we can begin to mate and populate. That’s Putin’s strategy in Russia and it should be ours.

        • Malgus

          That old saw.. “Don’t have kids until you can afford them”… phooey.

          As a parent, you will NEVER be able to “afford” kids. It’s just the way it is. You have kids and then you sacrifice for them, to provide for them. Such has it always been, and always will be.

          Have as many children as you can, and count yourself lucky and blessed you had so many… children are an absolute delight. I cannot imagine life without my wife and son…

      Act like your enemy, become your enemy.
      R-Breeding is the game of Go. Place a white stone, place a black stone, place a white stone etc. Whenever a given color surrounds another on all sides, that color subsumes the other through the simple act of annihilative replacement. The problem with this is that by the time the last enemy you can see to reach is dead, you have no more spots on the board to fill.
      Where the board is itself representative of resources, physical as much as social, that means that now you have put yourself in a position where _it does not matter_ how great your genes are or how much love and attention and care you give to raising your kid.
      Because there is literally _nothing_ left for them to veni vidi vici as their own inheritance and a legacy to win.
      This is why blood is connected to soil. This is why terrain isolates as evolutionary spaces for _K-Breeding_ groups are important. Because a K-Breeder only has a few kids and invests heavily in them. But more importantly, when he dies his child steps forward into his place. And when they die, their child moves up. Like in Chess, when a piece is removed from the board, there is still _the board_ on which to maneuver.
      R-Breeders face a condition where the salamander must begin to eat it’s own tail because the man with four kids will have grand children if they don’t compete with and backstab each other for position.
      You want to know why Mexico looks like it does? Filled with stupidity, greed, and a political class that, at the turn of the Millennium _still_ assassinates rival candidates for power?
      That’s why.
      The Casta system as class rule over all resources based on family and friend cronyism amongst their own is nothing less than the result of the genetic algorithm which says: “Breed many, kill many, lose many, balance.”
      But it is an entropic balance. One which goes nowhere after filling the environment to carrying capacity like animals and does NOTHING to promote excellence as it’s own pursuit.
      Whites have a different balance. A dynamic, innate, one which is driven by the belief that now is not enough. We must plan for something better. And we must _conserve_ what which we have, to get there. Such is the touch of the numinous.

  • So CAL Snowman

    So why aren’t White male teachers and Christians SUING the pants off of this Michigan school district?

    • kikz

      that reminds me… where the hell is the Evangelical White Right? I thought this thing all sewed up since roughly the 90’s? They had a plan, remember.. to form an army of warriors for Christ…. (checking watch)….crickets…. guess they’ve got other priorities E. of Eden….

    I know I should be more outraged, but situations like this one are helpful in that they let us know where they stand.

  • OhWow

    More women wanted in the school? Women are represented in schools like blacks are in the NBA…at least 80% and in some cases more.

    I would know, I work in a school. The few men see each other in the hallways, give a quick “How are you?” and get back to work. The women spend most of their time gossiping about which high school kids are dating, who’s having a baby, and other female drama. It’s EXTREMELY feminized.

    Women dominate households, they dominate custody cases, they dominate divorce cases, they dominate schools, they dominate college, etc.

    Men are totally ignored in our culture. Pink everywhere for breast cancer, but you will never catch women rallying in blue t-shirts against prostate cancer, heart disease, or heart attacks. The last thing we need is more feminist influence.

      Buying clothes for my son is a challenge. Seems girls have a lot of variety in the clothing section. Boys, not so much. It’s almost like boys are an afterthought.

      I often feel sorry for my son because as a White male he’s at a disadvantage…and then I take him to church. But I tell him, be happy to be a boy.

      • Malgus

        Buy Carhart clothing. Red Wing boots. Good, solid clothing that holds up to the rough and tumble.

  • RHG

    “Antiquated” my behind, this is all modern day PC garbage and they wanted to see if they could get away with it, but got caught. Now they will just go back to hiding their intentions under the wording “we encourage diversity”.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Here’s another good one out of Michigan.

    And NO, it’s NOT an April Fool’s joke…

    Union Contract: Teachers Can Be Caught in School Drunk Five Times and On Drugs Three Times Before Being Fired

    Teachers in possession or under the influence of illegal drugs could be caught three times before they lost their job, and they got five strikes if they were drunk on school grounds before being fired.

    This was probably included in the contract because there are SO many alcoholics in our ranks — some schools would be cleared out if teachers were fired for being drunk on school grounds the FIRST TIME.

    Although, I’ve noticed over my career there has been a switch from alcohol to psychotropic drugs, for a lot of teachers, especially those in majority black schools, it’s the ONLY way possible to get through the day…

    • Alexandra1973

      So much for drug-free school zones.

      • Xerxes22

        That only applied to students. That’s why teachers, administrators and politicians don’t have to take mandatory drug tests.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          If drugs were denied teachers, especially alcohol and pot, most classrooms nation-wide would empty out. A prohibition on psychtropic drugs would clear out any that were left.

          It’s the ONLY way some teachers are able to cope (FTR, I do not smoke pot or take psychotropic drugs and I’ll plead the 5th on alcohol consumption (but never when I’m working)). I know MANY teachers who are look strait laced but in reality are heavy drug users, especially prescription drugs — they even BRAG about it.

          I have no problem with drug testing for teachers, BTW.

  • WR_the_realist

    The words may be out of the contract now but you can be sure the teacher’s union and the school district will continue to act as if the words were still there.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I’ll check it out…thanks!!

  • Brian

    “those of the non-Christian faith”? What religion is that? I didn’t realize it was a coin toss.
