A Florida School Decided to Confront Complaints of Racism...Until a Diversity Curriculum Caused 'Angst'
It is called the "Caucasian Inference".
Most social, economic, political, or even theoretical problems can be solved by addressing the situation, figuring out, and implementing a strategy to resolve the dilemma. When you are sick, find out what is making you sick and take medication. To find the answer to 128 divided by 17, ask Alexa. Even a bumblebee will ask the queen for a lunch break if threatened and stab you with her prey knife (yes, that's the correct biological term).

However, there is one exception in Caucasianomics: racism.
Apparently, white supremacy is the only problem on earth that can be fixed by ignoring it. While white people can simply "move forward" into a world where they "see no color," the Caucasian inference requires that black people shut up and stop making white people uncomfortable. If we "stop educating" races, the whites will spontaneously stop doing the harm they have done against us for 400 years.
Future former racists have not only carved out this unique problem solving exception for themselves, but a reputable private school has also built a whole educational philosophy around them. The predominantly white 88-year-old institution recently reversed its course in solving its racial problem by implementing the Caucasian inference.
Founded in 1933, Bolles School serves preschoolers through 12th grade for a meager $ 12,000 to $ 29,000 a year. Students can also choose to live in one of four Florida locations for the paltry $ 59,310. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, Bolles is 78 percent white and 4.5 percent black (as this is of course never mentioned on Bolles' diversity page on equality and inclusion).
In June 2020, a group of former and current black students from Bolles published a list of demands for Bolles based on their experiences at the school. The petition called for the resignation or resignation of six faculty members, a ban on the Confederate flag, the acceptance of black hairstyles, a more diverse faculty, and a zero-tolerance policy on racism.
Seems fair. It's not like they asked the school to do something impossible like not be racist. They just wanted the people in Bolles to pretend they weren't racist. The petition was accompanied by an Instagram account detailing the experiences of students, alumni and parents dealing with racism at school.
That wasn't new. Sure, it's understandable when a yearbook bio states that a 1968 Bolles student spent time in activities like the KKK, the Ethiopian Music Club, while he was “preparing to agitate study and become a professional fanatic ". The blackface yearbook photos are a whole different matter.
But that was a long time ago.
I am sure it is different now.
The school first decided to solve their racial problem using the same strategies that bumblebees and mathematicians use. According to The Root, the school president, board chairman and director of inclusion and diversity announced in a joint letter that they would establish a diversity task force, recruit more black faculties, and implement a more diverse curriculum by “expanding the program for diversity and inclusion for teachers, students and parents at all grade levels. "
“As the @BlackAtBolles Instagram account and other social media forums have shown, the Bolles community has to do better, be better and make changes,” the letter began on July 17, 2020. “We have listened and we are Determined to be a better bolls. Most of all, we are determined to act - now. Racism of any kind is not tolerated in our community. As communities and organizations around the world are challenged to explain painful stories of systemic racism and inequalities, schools in particular need to work to ensure an environment of true justice and inclusion. "
And they actually followed through. After hiring counselors and attending workshops, the school informed students, parents and alumni that they would incorporate racial literacy into their curriculum. They chose a program from Pollyanna, a "national not-for-profit organization that helps academic and other institutions achieve their goals of diversity, equity and inclusion".
Then the school changed its mind out of nowhere.
In a January 26 letter to stakeholders, the school revealed a complete reversal of course and announced that they were not really looking into this non-racist life. They had literally found a solution to their problem, but because "certain elements of the Pollyanna curriculum caused great anxiety in our community," the institution concluded that "finding common ground and finding solutions is not a quick fix and takes time" .
"After careful consideration," said the chairman and school president, "we have decided not to go ahead and investigate other diversity initiatives and resources that we believe will strengthen Bolles and ensure that the school is welcoming and supportive Community is for them. " anyone."
So what happened
According to News4Jax, on January 20, six days before dropping out of school, four wealthy donors emailed a letter to a group of over 30 Bolles stakeholders. The letter, written by A. Chester Skinner III, Richard Dostie, Clancey Houston, Rodney McLauchlan, and William Lynch - all former chairmen of the Bolles Board of Trustees - condemned the school for “responding to social agendas, and those agendas in ours Curriculum and in our curriculum ask students how to think. “The four horsemen of the anti-racist apocalypse called on the school without a doubt not to tolerate this tolerance BS anymore ... or otherwise.
"Our goal should be unity and not promote a subgroup based on religious beliefs, skin color, ethnicity or sexual preferences," declared the old white men who do not want their grandchildren to unite with non-white, non-heterosexual children. "That does nothing other than racial division, not understanding."
When asked what part of the curriculum affected the school's mission, the white men did not answer.
But School President Tyler Hodges insists the former chairman's letter "had absolutely no bearing on our decision to change course for implementing our curriculum," Hodges said in an email response to News4Jax. "The decision to make alternative improvements to our curriculum was made weeks earlier ... Faculty members, staff, and members of our community had issues with various parts of the curriculum, including in some cases its age appropriateness."
However, a recent student told The Root that the racist atmosphere in Bolles has been quite pleasant lately. She acknowledges the school's problems in the past but couldn't remember a single incident that made her feel uncomfortable this year. But she had a great explanation for her racism free year in Bolles.
"I've been online for a year now," the student told The Root. "It's a lot less stressful."
To be fair, four old white men may know more about what's going on at a school they attended four decades ago than a current black student who actually experienced racism. Fortunately, she found a solution to her predicament.
"I'm trying to get permission to stay online for my final year," the student told The Root. "Prayers."
"We tried to answer your prayers," read a response from the Heavenly Board of Trustees. “Although they rejected our solution, we understand their feelings. You may not be familiar with our work. "
"I wouldn't let my son near this place," said God L. Mighty, chief officer for Diversity, Inclusion and Creation, adding:
"Have you ever heard of Caucasian inferences?"
