In defense of the California math teacher whose problematic lesson is accused of committing ‘violence’

If you haven’t seen it already, I apologize in advance for bringing to your attention this sad episode in our ongoing national struggle to be as woke as possible.

A math teacher in Riverside, California, is being excoriated for a silly lesson she taught where she danced around in a manner offensive to Native Americans.

Here’s what she did:

I’m not going to defend what she did, I think it was ill-advised. She seems like a youngish teacher, and by now, we all know what sorts of things get us in trouble in our increasingly woke society.

But, I will defend her against the insane and absurd claim that she somehow committed “violence” by her actions and speech.

She should not have done what she did, but she should apologize, we should accept her apology and we should all just move on.

I was raised in Southern California, and I was lucky enough to have incredible, wonderful teachers. Most of them were white, and I was one of the few, sometimes solitary, Hispanic kids in our advanced math classes.

When I see the video of what this woman did, I’m not offended as a person of Native American ancestry. I know that she’s is not *intending* to hurt anyone. It’s a little cringy and ill advised. That’s it.

Anyone who has taught math knows exactly what she’s doing. SOH CAH TOA is a mnemonic device to help students remember the three trigonometric functions, and she is using this silly dance to help kids remember it. But the way it’s being portrayed by the woke mob on social media is as if her primary intention was to mock Native American culture.

Ironically, the very fact that we have to obsess over unintentionally offensive episodes like this shows just how much progress we’ve made in this country to stamp out racism. Now the pendulum is swinging far too wide the other way. We’re rewarding children by making them into media heroes when they swoon at the slightest offense and destroy otherwise decent people.

If there is no other indication that this teacher has been discriminatory to her students, let her apologize, and let’s all move on.

VA school district covered up bathroom child rape in order to push trans policy and the media is ignoring it

This is simply astounding. Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs to pay attention to the horrendous evil that is happening in Loudoun County in Virginia.

Watch this:

So there’s a lot of details here and it gets convoluted really easily. Basically, a school district told parents that there was NO bathroom sexual assault at one of their schools, when there was, and then when the parents of the victims objected, they were smeared in the media.

And it gets worse.

It really looks like the National School Board Association used this horrible case in order to press for protections from the Department of Justice, when they SHOULD have been trying to get justice for the parents and his daughter.

Now it must be noted that the assault is still alleged, since the suspect has not been convicted yet.

But what is unconscionable is that the school district allowed the dad to be smeared in the media for months.

This is an astounding evil and the mainstream media, by ignoring it, is basically helping cover it up. We can only guess why that is — an ideological sympathy for the LGBTQ movement and a hostility for parents demanding accountability from their schools.

When the Loudoun County Public Schools finally commented on the case, they said that the district members didn’t know about the assault when they told parents that there wasn’t one:

How is that possible? And why aren’t they apologizing to the dad they allowed to be smeared in public for months? It’s just incredible.

If you want to help Scott fight his case, there is a GoFundMe here:

I have been resistant to a lot of the nutty outrage that has come out of “our side” these days, because a lot of it is exaggerated and just not justified. In this case, there is simply not enough outrage out there, especially by anyone who claims to have a conscience on the left.
