School Decides To Hold “BLM WEEK” For Kindergarteners And First Graders

A school district in Denver, Colorado had decided that between January 31 and February 4, kindergarteners and first graders will take part in a “Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action”. Part of the week’s events will include teaching children to not only be queer affirming, but transgender affirming to help heteronormative thinking no longer exist. Given that the week surrounds Black Lives Matter, the teaching curriculum included learning about globalism and how it affected the Black family. And sadly, that isn’t all as another BLM principle being pushed on the youth of tomorrow is about “Black Villages” and “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.” 

Centennial Elementary School (CES) in Denver Public Schools (DPS) announced the weeklong event that will again be taught to children who are between the ages of 5 to 7-years-old. Knowing that the topic would most likely cause some backlash from parents, the school provided a FAQ that included questions about age appropriateness, political agendas, and talking to children about BLM. 

While some parents might believe the subject of BLM is too young for 5-year-olds, the school said “it is never too early to start talking about race”. They added that many children between the ages of two and four can somehow harbor racial bias. 

The FAQ section also provided links for parents pertaining to race and how to be an antiracist. One of the works promoted was by Ibram X. Kendi, who not only supports “anti racism” but is a strong proponent of CRT. He stated, “There is no such thing as a nonracist or race-neutral policy. Every policy in every institution in every community in every nation is producing or sustaining either racial inequity or equity between racial groups.”

Kendi believed, “The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.”

A concerned parents organization, Parents Defending Education, filed a federal civil rights complaint against the decision, claiming it violated the Civil Right Act of 1964 and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
