EXCLUSIVE: Virginia Public School Principal Tries To Defend Banning Students From Researching White Male Scientists

Published

on

Yorktown High School principal Bridget Loft is trying to defend her public school’s physics assignment, which forbids students from picking a white male scientist or inventor to research for a biography project. The assignment explicitly states that having so many white males in formal textbooks contributes to a “Eurocentric view” of the world, which the teacher said is “false.”

Principal Bridget Loft told Big League Politics: “This project was assigned by a Physics teacher who  wanted his students to research a scientist, engineer or inventor with whom they shared an identity marker, such as race, religion or gender to name just a few examples. All year, students have been learning about scientists such as Isaac Newton who has an entire chapter named after him. The intent of this project was to expand the knowledge of students beyond what is in their text books and to learn about the contributions of other scientists. It was not to in anyway minimize or diminish the work of scientists that they study on a regular basis.”

Loft has not yet responded to my inquiry about the outrage among some parents that this racist assignment sparked.

Yorktown High School, a public school in Arlington, Virginia, handed out a physics assignment instructing students to pick a famous scientist, engineer, or inventor to focus on for a biographical project. But the assignment came with a catch: Students are not allowed to choose a “white, non-Hispanic male.”

The assignment states: “Your inventor should share at least one marker of identity with you. However, they cannot be a white, non-Hispanic male. Reason: Our textbooks and schooling is filled with famous while male scientists & engineers. It gives the impression that nobody else (female, persons of color) has contributed to science. This Eurocentric view is false…”

Here is the original classroom assignment, provided to Big League Politics by a concerned parent.

Narrative Buster: Media Ignores Milwaukee Molson Coors Mass Shooter

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
