Minneapolis Public Schools are currently in the midst of a racist campaign to lay off staff members based on their skin color.
According to the school districts’ new contract with the labor union, employees who are from “underrepresented populations” are to be granted amnesty from firing in an attempt to maintain diversity in the district.
Alpha News, a Minnesota news website, reported on the deal which has been widely seen as illegal and unconstitutional.
The most controversial proposal in the deal is a so-called “educators of color protections.” The deal states that in the event of over staffing, if a minority teacher is in line to be fired next then the administrators must instead fire the next lowest tenured white teacher.
“Starting with the Spring 2023 Budget Tie-Out Cycle, if excessing a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teacher in the site, the District shall excess the next least senior teacher, who is not a member of an underrepresented population,” according to the contract.
This rule has been put in place in what the district calls an attempt “to remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination by the District.”
The agreement continues, “past discrimination by the District disproportionately impacted the hiring of underrepresented teachers in the District, as compared to the relevant labor market and the community, and resulted in a lack of diversity of teachers.”
Alpha News quotes James Dickey, a senior trial counsel at the Upper Midwest Law Center, as saying “the [collective bargaining agreement]… openly discriminated against white teachers based only on the color of their skin, and not their seniority or merit.
Minneapolis teachers and taxpayers who oppose government-sponsored racism like this should stand up against it,” he concluded.
Rep. Jeremy Munson, a Minnesota state representative, took to Facebook to voice his concern.
“The Minneapolis Teachers Union has taken a racist approach and agreed to protect your job based on your skin color, over your job performance or seniority. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but racist employment contracts have no place in our society.”
Kendall Qualls, a former Minnesota gubernatorial candidate, told Fox News that he fear this new policy will be a gateway to many more just like it.
Qualls partially blames the book “How to Be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi for issues like this.
“This book is almost in every school library in the country. And what he basically says in order to remedy past discrimination, the Jim Crow South, we need to implement present discrimination. It’s and infinite loop of evil. It’s un-American,” explained the exasperated Qualls.
Ofi Montzka, who works for Take Charge Minnesota, also spoke out against this insane contract saying, “It’s wrong and it’s illegal, If people really did discriminate against teachers like the Minneapolis Public Schools admit they have done, then they need to remedy that and punish the people who are discriminating, not the innocent teachers.”
One thing is sure, the administrators will not face the consequences of their past actions in hiring a predominantly white staff. Instead, they will simply use skin color as a qualifying factor for teaching candidates moving forward.
