One parent, in particular, as the Tribune notes, has railed against a lunch-time drum class for black and Hispanic boys at the school (the parent
believes it discriminates against women, girls, Asians, whites and Native Americans).
Gutierrez, though, claims children weren’t turned away and denies that offering a minority-specific class amounts to discrimination.
“When white people do it, it is not a problem, but if it’s for kids of color, then it’s a problem?,” she said. “Break it down for me.
That’s your white privilege, and your whiteness.”
PBJ sandwiches are racist, but a "minority-specific" drum
class isn't racist at all. For those confused, google "black people rhythm"
I grew up poor. Eating PBJs was a treat. For dinner we regularly had purple hull peas - that my mom and I spent several hours every day
shelling (they are still frowned on in certain parts since they used be trash food given to livestock...humans are supposed to eat black-eye peas),
mashed potatoes, and cabbage for dinner at least twice a week. Yes, you see no protein in that list since meat was expensive. PBJs had the protein I
needed growing up. When I did get the occasional meat on a sandwich it was Spam, potted meat, or Vienna sausages (probably why I like those since I
rarely got them).
So I regularly eat a PBJ on wheat bread, and my son has grown up loving them, too. So I'm proud to be a PBJ-loving racist and will gladly pass on my
racist upbringing to my son.
