Dallas Justice Now is a radical Black activist group.
This is how they describe themselves in their about page:
WE, THE PEOPLE OF DALLAS, MUST COME TOGETHER AND REMEDY THE ROOT CAUSES OF THE INSTITUTIONALIZED RACISM WHICH WE KNOW IS A PLAGUE ON PEOPLE OF COLOR IN OUR CITY.
We are ambitious that by tackling the root causes of institutionalized racism in our city we can remedy the injustices we see on a day to day basis like police brutality and access to quality education. Every black man and woman deserve to live their lives without fear of murder by cop and with the education which equips us for a real future.
They want the typical radical Leftist things like defunding the police.
Now they have created a pledge that they want White people to sign asking them to not send their children to good colleges.:
As a white person with privilege both from my whiteness and my neighborhood I recognize the need to make sacrifices for the purpose of correcting hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated upon people of color. I understand that access to top schools is a key component in economic and social advancement. Therefore, I commit that my children will not apply to or attend any Ivy League School or US News & World Report Top 50 School so that position at that school is available for people of color to help correct historical wrongs. If I do not have children under 18 then I will commit to encouraging my white privileged friends, neighbors, and family members with children to sign the pledge and holding them accountable until they do so.
They actually put this in a letter and sent it to people.
I come from a culture (both Jewish and upper middle-class) where you do everything you can to give your kids the best educational opportunity to succeed.
My parents spent a lot of money on me to go to a college prep a high school and have SAR tutors.
I sent my kids to the best (and often most expensive) daycare and pre-K in the area. I’ve bought resources to have my eldest practice the gifted and talented entry test to get him into our local school’s G&T program (all the private schools in our area are evangelical). I will do the same for our daughter.
We buy math books and educational programs for him to do during summer so he doesn’t fall behind.
We read to our kids at night. We taught them to read early. We don’t park them in front of video games. My wife loads them up with library books.
I know lots and lots of people like me.
That is how we get ahead. It’s not inherited wealth, it’s parents who put effort into educating out children.
I could have bought a lot of nice guns or a new truck every other year for what I paid for my children’s pre-K. I sacrificed for my kids.
Now these activists want people like me to hamstring my kids over White guilt?
Are they fucking kidding me?
And if they think they can extort us into this (because you know this will go national) they are mistaken.
You want to turn a bunch of upper middle-class parents from moderates to night riders setting fires and beating people, all you have to do is take away the educational opportunities for their children.
After tens of thousands of dollars spent on tutoring and college prep and giving our children every leg up possible for success, committing murder for our kids is well within our capabilities.
