FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Southwest Allen County Schools is still moving forward with their attempt to address racial concerns.

The calls to action gained significant traction after a photo of a Homestead High School student in blackface went viral in February and led to protests at the school. Our partners in news at 21 Alive report that on Tuesday, the district voted to move forward with a group called ‘FAIR for All’.

The biggest concern with the decision is that the group will only be working with teachers. The board is yet to decide on a group to host community engagement sessions.

Cost is a concern, as Superintendent Park Ginder says that FAIR for All would cost in the range of $50,000 to use them for additional sessions.

Some poor kid has a picture taken with black makeup on and now the SACS taxpayers have to pay for nonsense training that is a waste of time. The entire DEI movement is designed to pray on frightened companies and school districts while otherwise incompetent people with useless degrees get rich peddling cries of fake racism. I wish companies and schools would ignore these groups and stand up to the bullying by the left. Our country started down this path of division when Obama was elected and Biden is making it worse.

Just the Presence on “Blackface” is Racist? So much for common sense or critical thinking, and now the result in PAYING to involve a group Like “FAIR for All”…and with a name like that (Ironic naming convention), I’m sure they will teach your kids that they are the problem since birth due to their skin color, and minorities are exempt.

“Protest”….At some point, Parents need to become the Adults in the room and put a stop to all this activism Nonsense with their kids.

At the end of the day, this Diversity equity and inclusion [DEI] garbage needs to go away if society will ever heal from the damage Democrats have done.
