With radical educators like these tending the minds of our children, who needs enemies? This is the reason there's a growing racial divide in our nation, clearly demonstrating that racial tensions have absolutely nothing to do with conservative values. Quite the reverse. Left-wing idealogs hide their racism under the cloak of "social justice". This kind of thinking is no better than the hate spewed against Jews in Palestinian classrooms.
