Truth is treason in the empire of lies.
CARROLLTON, Texas – A racist question about china on a sixth-grade social studies test led to the suspension of three teachers.
The Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD superintendent called the language inappropriate, disrespectful and said there was an investigation.
But parents will have to decide for themselves whether he and the district are being transparent.
The superintendent never admitted the language was racist and never offered an apology.
Here is the question in question.
Obviously, they do eat dogs in parts of China. It’s an interesting thing to learn about and should spark interest and create further questions in the mind of young learners.
Joy Lim was in disbelief while peering over her younger sister’s shoulder while she took her sixth-grade social studies quiz. It was a multiple-choice question. Lim says she wasn’t going to let slide…
“Teaching this material to 12-year-olds is wildly inappropriate,” she said. “I was like, ‘I have to take a picture of this. This is crazy! I have to send this to the district or someone and demand an explanation.’”
She did the “wow just wow.”
Did this dog get an explanation before they ate him, Joy Lim?
Superintendent John Chapman posted a video statement Wednesday afternoon.
“Three employees used an inaccurate depiction about Asian Americans on a middle school social studies test. The words used for the question were inappropriate,” he said.
The Superintendent, John Chapman, has a salary reported to be $293,500. Apparently, that is the price to lie about someone underneath you, and throw them under the bus to save your own ass.
John Chapman is obviously creating a straw man, as the question was not about “Asian Americans” but about cultural practices in parts of China.
Personally, I think you should write and call Mr. Chapman and ask how he can sleep at night knowing he is lying about those underneath him. If I were a teacher in that district, I would know that this guy does not have my back if I try and teach literal truth to students.

Yes, they eat dogs and cats in China. They eat all kinds of wild animals in China. This is a fact.
Apparently, the real crime is not eating the dogs. The truly evil part is talking about the fact that it happens.
There is a push in schools across America to start teaching “cultural competency.” The top school district in Texas, Southlake Carroll, has been going to war against their rogue school board and administration over trying to ram through one of these super hardcore neo-Marxist programs under the guise that it teaches “cultural competency.”
As this story showcases, these programs and agendas have little to nothing to do with what they claim, much less the truth about other cultures. In fact, truth is a mortal enemy to their agenda.
They will tell you that white people are bad, and endlessly slander white people who are dead as evil, when these people are not alive to defend themselves. This seems to be a non-negotiable component of these programs which come under various names.
But you want to make an accurate, factual observation about another culture with anything less than undiluted praise?
How are we going to address our (massive) problems with Chinese spies in America if we can’t even talk about how they eat dogs in China?
