An assignment recently given to seventh and eighth graders at a suburban Ohio middle school has sparked outrage among parents and the public at large.
“The twelve persons listed below have been selected as passengers on a space ship for a flight to another planet because tomorrow the planet Earth is doomed for destruction,” said the instructions for an assignment given to Roberts Middle School students in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. “Due to changes in space limitations, it has now been determined that only eight persons may go. Any eight qualify.”
Students were instructed to choose eight of the 12 people to save. They had the following options:
- An accountant with a substance abuse problem
- A militant African-American medical student
- A 33-year-old female Native American manager who does not speak English
- The accountant’s pregnant wife
- A famous novelist with a physical disability
- A 21-year-old female Muslim international student
- A Hispanic clergyman against homosexuality
- A female move [sic] star who was recently a victim of sexual assault
- A racist armed police officer who has been accused of using excessive force
- A homosexual male, professional athlete
- An Asian, orphaned 12-year-old boy
- A 60-year-old Jewish university administrator
The assignment outraged City Councilman Adam Miller, according to a report.
“In my view, it clearly uses conjecture which is suggesting this fictious behavior is somehow an accepted pattern.” Miller said in a now-deleted Facebook post. “Additionally, it’s implanting prejudicial thoughts in these young impressionable minds. This is NOT building a – “culture of caring” – this is building a culture of animosity, antagonism & hostility!”
The Cleveland Scene, an alternative weekly newspaper described the assignment as “a proverbial trash fire of racism, classism, homophobia, sexism, ageism, ableism and every other disgusting -ism you could imagine.”
The teacher who assigned the project will receive a “strongly worded letter” in his personnel file which will indicated that he “erred in judgment,” according to superintendent Todd M. Nichols.
Statue of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass Removed & Stolen from New York Park
So much for this being about Confederate statues.
A statue of famed abolitionist and escaped slave Frederick Douglass was stolen from a Rochester, New York park over the weekend, revealing that leftist cultural vandals have no qualms with destroying icons of individuals essential to the movement against slavery in the United States.
The statue of Douglass was wholly and entirely removed from its base in Rochester’s Maplewood Park, and was missing as of Sunday morning. Pieces of rubble surrounding its foundations suggest the statue was ripped from its base.

The statue was later found in a gorge some distance away from its place in the park, having been crudely dismounted and dumped. The Douglass statue was confirmed to be damaged from the vandalism by Rochester authorities.
Douglass, a longtime Rochester resident, was one of the most famous Black Americans of the 19th century, having escaped slavery as a young man and taken up the abolitionist cause. He was an associate of President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, and is thought of by many as one of the first black Republicans throughout the Reconstruction period of American history.
Vandalism of the Douglass statue, who perhaps is on par with figures such as Ulysses Grant and Lincoln in association with the Union cause during the Civil War, would eliminate any claim of merely targeting Confederate and “racist” statues on the part of left-wing rioters and protestors. When you can’t even differentiate between figures such as Stonewall Jackson(who merit the preservation of statues in their own right, even if they were on the wrong side) and Frederick Douglass, you lose any claim of historical enlightenment in justification of your cultural jihad against American civilization.
