Black Parent Shocked To Learn That Her Child’s Elementary School Segregated Classes By Race
Atlanta, U.S.: A black parent was furious after she learned that the public elementary school her child was attending segregated children based on their race.
WSB-TV Atlanta reported that a mother named Kila Posey found that the school’s principal was separating classes based on race when she asked for her child to be moved to another class. School principal Sharyn Briscoe, told the mother that her child would be “isolated” in the class she wanted to transfer it to because it was not a class of black kids.
“[The principal] said, ‘that’s not one of the black classes.’ And I immediately said, ‘what does that mean?’ I was confused,” Posey said. “I asked for more clarification. I was like, ‘we have those in this school?’ And she proceeded to say that yes, ‘I have decided that I’m going to place all of the black students in two classes.’”

This is quite possibly due to the absurd race-based policies widely promoted by left-wing activists at all levels of education. https://t.co/ySPqvTXFj3

According to the mother, the elementary school created eight classes, two of which were only for black kids, and six only for whites.
“We’ve lost sleep trying to figure out, like, why would a person do this? First, it was just disbelief that I was having this conversation in 2020 with a person that looks just like me, a black woman,” Posey said. “It’s segregating classrooms. You cannot segregate classrooms. You can’t do it.”
She also called what was happening in the school “unethical” and “illegal”.

The mother has since filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.
The complaint argues that the school violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, according to which “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Parents told there are “white classrooms” & “black classrooms” & the students must not mix.

However, the outcome of the case will be difficult to predict, given that it was turned in to the current president’s Department of Education.
