The disturbing evolution in government “equality” programs is the application of discrimination to fix discrimination. We hope to inequality resulting from discrimination based on things like skin color by…discriminating based on things like skin color.
Case in point, a school in Colorado which has banned white kids from an after school tutoring program.
From the local CBS affiliate:
A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.
The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.
“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.
Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.
Maybe the solution for inequality is to just stop treating people differently because of their skin color.
But this is what happens when the “social justice” crowd tries to achieve equal outcomes, rather than supporting equal opportunity.
