Social media posts from students either displaying or using the N-word has brought about a swift political response from the Cedar Falls School District.

The district sent out an email on Feb. 8 that announced the release of their “Equity Resources Site.”

On it are a number of links to various examples of Leftist political propaganda.

“This website includes a wide variety of resources to help create an understanding of social equity, how it applies in the school setting and why it is important,” the email said. “The Equity Site features an assortment of resources for you, whether you are learning about social equity for the first time, you’re unclear on certain aspects of social equity or you’re stuck on how to have conversations about equity with your child(ren). The site also includes educational materials for students of a variety of ages to learn about social equity in an accessible way.”

The district said the website is not an all-encompassing or exhaustive resource list.

“We will continually be adding new resources, including additional LGBTQ+ and inclusion links, plus more,” the email said. “We suggest families start with the Listening and Learning tabs. Both of these have excellent resources including:

Straight Talk About the N-Word

The video series, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man

Learn About Microaggressions

28 Days of Black History – A virtual exhibition of 28 works that celebrate Black legacy in the U.S. Sign up to receive this e-newsletter.”

The FAMiLY Leader notes that the Equity Resources include:

*a “Resist Bot Support Kit for Black Lives Matter” that suggests parents and students contribute to a bail fund for protesters and contact Congress to “loudly denounce” Donald Trump.

*The link “Ways You Can Help” directs to a website that includes petitions to defund the police.

*And the “Beyond the Hashtag: How to Take Anti-Racist Action in Your Life” encourages asking legislators to decriminalize marijuana and end voter ID laws, advocates reparation payments, suggests reading the Marxist book “A People’s History of the United States” by Howard Zinn, and more.

“The additional elements shoehorned into this curriculum reveal an agenda that extends way beyond justice and racial reconciliation,” warns Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY Leader. “This is just one of many examples of why parents need to be aware and involved and need to have the opportunity to make educational choices that are in the best interests of their children.”
