Coed identifies the black teacher at the heart of an alleged antiwhite incident as sixth grade teacher Tarsha Clarke, pictured above. Parents Farren Wilkinson and Robert Jeremy were brave enough to stand up at a school board meeting and condemn the abuse of the white children at Western Rockingham Middle School. Watch! Both are brave, but Mr. Jeremy is a tiger.
Diversity is a bitch, ain’t it!
This story broke into the national consciousness yesterday via the College Fix, which did not name the alleged teacher.
Allegations that a middle school teacher forced several students to stand and apologize for their “white privilege” have rocked a North Carolina school district.
First reported by American Lens, during a meeting of the Rockingham County School Board last month, a woman named Farren Wilkinson made the troubling accusations against a teacher from Western Rockingham Middle School.
“[The teacher] caused some of her students to stand up and apologize to other students based on their inequal [sic] opportunities of education,” Wilkinson said.
“So I would like to know how our schools can allow an educator to humiliate, bully and degrade students. This is not a matter of race but a matter of a teacher using fear and the embarrassment of children to satisfy her own personal anger or beliefs.”
From the Lens report:
American Lens was also told by one parent that the incident was more specific than Wilkinson stated.
According to that parent, [the teacher] forced her white students to stand in front of the class and apologize to the minority students for their “white privilege.”
American Lens contacted Stephanie Wray, Principal of Western Rockingham Middle School, [and] asked for comment the alleged white privilege [the] incident […]
Wray indicated no such incident happened.
“In regard to your additional requests, I can not [sic] speak on any individual, however any allegations brought to our attention are investigated thoroughly and proper disciplinary action is taken if needed. Again, I can not speak regarding specific individuals due to personnel law, however the particular incident you asked about was unfounded to happen at our school,” wrote Wray.
Principal Wray’s response appears to be the district standard for The College Fix received the exact same answer after contacting Rockingham spokeswoman Karen Hyler.
The Fix also reached out for comment from the accused teacher but received no response.
Rockingham County Public Schools recently fell into the feel-good trap known as “equity training.” Like with the Pacific Educational Group’s “Courageous Conversations,” staff were educated on topics like “structural racism” and yes, “white privilege.”
Rockingham’s program is headed by a group called OpenSource which, according to the Lens, works with “a list of left-leaning ‘partners‘, including the radical, pro-illegal immigration, hispanic [sic] organizing group, El Pueblo” and has as one of its main clients the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, “a primary funding source for progressive and leftist organizations in North Carolina.”
Principal Stephanie Wray either had a black employee write the nearly illiterate response or she herself is nearly unable to compose a decent paragraph. “Can not” should be “cannot”. The phrase “unfounded to happen” is totally illiterate.
Whatever, this nonresponse of a response is morally reprehensible. Parents, in the minds of the arrogant school officials, have no right to complain about what mind games are played on their children.
A new school board needs to be elected. Furthermore, school bond issues should be rejected by voters until accountability is restored. In addition, no black teacher should ever be allowed to teach white students.
