OLATHE, KS (KCTV) -
Officials with the Olathe School District issued an apology Friday after only black students were invited on a school outing.
On Wednesday, a letter was sent to Olathe South High School students by Assistant Principal Candy Birch. In the letter, Birch said in her role as activities director that she wanted to give students an additional opportunity to connect with each other.
“So we are planning an outing open to our African-American sophomores and juniors,” she wrote.
The event on April 5 would include a visit to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the American Jazz Museum, lunch at Arthur Bryant’s and then a visit to the Nelson-Atkins Art Gallery to see the “History and Hope: Celebrating the Civil Rights Movement” exhibit.
Birch wrote that she hopes this would be “the first of several outings and activities in the future years.”
“The Olathe South administration would like to apologize for the misunderstanding,” according to a district statement.
The district has yet to make an in-school announcement clarifying that it’s an open invitation.
Misunderstanding? My Ass!

Increased vigilance in Fairfax County over housing-code violations is stirring uneasy tension in some neighborhoods where residents — often recently arrived immigrants — are crowding into single-family houses or running unlicensed businesses from their back yards.
Annoyed neighbors increasingly are utilizing a county system that allows them to e-mail or phone in complaints about various concerns, such as parked cars crowding driveways and side streets or unkempt yards loaded with work materials. Read More

“I hadn’t the slightest clue what my privilege of being a white man had brought me… I learned to see my life through a racial lens.” That’s what one Portland student took away from a new controversial course in “Critical Race Theory.”
Dateline Wednesday March 19, 2014 – Portland Oregon: Portland Public Schools teachers participated in a training session where a controversial new curriculum including “Critical Race Theory,” is explained. The curriculum is currently implemented in three charter schools at the K-5, middle school and high school level. The curriculum is expected to be rolled out to all schools in the Portland Public School System: thus the training.
In this Part I, we provide excepts from presentations by Principal Carl Reinhold. In one excerpt Reinhold appears to be somewhat apologetic for the school’s entrepreneurial business course actually teaching kids to make money. “”We’d like to think we stay away from focusing on businesses for profit…” explains Reinhold. A few statistics are provided for the school including the fact that 52% of the students receive “free” or subsidized lunches, and that on any given day one-in-five students are absent for class.
“Critical Race Theory” teacher Jessica Mallare then takes over. She explains:
“We went back on forth on this with my former Principal on this name. She wanted it to be ‘American Studies for College Prep Purposes.’ I was really attached to ‘Critical Race Theory’ or ‘Critical Race Studies,’” explains Mallare.
Mallare goes on to state there is no text book, so she has full autonomy to create the curriculum as she sees fit. She explains that she and Principal Reinhold would like to move the curriculum to younger members of the student population. “Carl and I both believe firmly that if we can start younger it just opens so many more doors …”
Her curriculum includes “Racial Identity Models,” “The Dominant White Culture,” and “Institutionalized Racism” in the United States.
“In her spare time, Jessica loves to go to concerts (mostly hip-hop and funk/soul), snowboard, watch movies, and watch basketball! GO BLAZERS! Fun fact: Ms. Jessica has won many face making contests!”

OLYMPIA, Wash. — An attempt to fight racism at a community college may have backfired.
A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College sent out an invitation to all 300 staffers.
The “Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color” encouraged employees to reply to the invitation to find out the confidential date and time of what was being called a “happy hour” to “build support and community” for people of color.
The invite made it clear white people were not invited.

A bad refugee kid gone wrong has reappeared, after pleading guilty as a 17-year-old to the murder of Mary Bethell (pictured), 47, a substance-abuse counselor in Aurora, Illinois, three years earlier. Now Garang Deng, formerly of Sudan, regrets confessing to the murder and wants a new trial. It was a long strange trip getting to this point, and the story is again being thrust upon the public, unfortunately. Read More
