Racial discrimination, long the bane of American culture and history, is, according to some leftist Twinkies, an evil found only among Caucasians. Some even go so far as to claim that people of color are incapable of being racists, either as a matter of DNA or superior moral tradition.
Enter the personage of Andre Pearson, a school principal from Aurora, Colorado who had the gall to promote, in writing no less, a tutoring program designated as available ONLY to people of color.
As reported, Mr. Pearson is desperately trying to explain his racist behavior but is having limited success:
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.
The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.
“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.
“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said.
Before Cox could complain to the school, Pearson contacted her directly. His voicemail only seemed to reinforce the segregated tutoring idea.
“This is Andre Pearson. It’s focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs,” Pearson told Cox in the voicemail.
Pearson declined to comment on camera, but a district spokesperson claims it was all just a big misunderstanding.
“I think what the answer is, is that he made a mistake,” Tustin Amole with the Cherry Creek School District told CBS4.”
By the way, for the record, Andre Pearson is a person of color, and despite his genes and upbringing is apparently a flaming racist!
