MI School District Suggests Joining BLM Protests

Timothy Nerozzi, Fox News, November 19, 2021

public school system in Michigan spent 21 days teaching adults in the district how to be good “equity” allies, capped with a direct call for them to join a Black Lives Matter political protest.


On the final day of the challenge, the calendar offered a “personal action plan sheet” for students to track their progress on the issue from an individual perspective. Directives given on the sheet include suggestions, such as to “donate to causes that support the Black LGBTQ+ community,” “join a Black Lives Matter or an affiliated protest” and “donate to bail efforts supporting people arrested for protesting against injustice.”

Previous days of the calendar were similarly progressive, including offering white privilege checklists, lessons on the gender spectrum and the “microaggressions” of meritocracy.

Day 18 of the “equity challenge” includes a link to a list of “microaggressions” to avoid, such as calling America “the land of opportunity.”
