Clara Amfo praised for emotional anti-racism speech on Radio 1

Has Meerkatz called you a Nazi yet?

That never served, no mark cünt doesn’t have the right to call anyone anything.

That’s two typos. fück, fück, fück, there’s nothing worse than sending a letter of rebuke with embarrassing typos.
 
Psychology? At a secondary school? FFS. That used to be university territory.
 
There may have been something else at play here also- purely my speculation but - maybe the teacher felt obliged to demonstrate certain credentials - and the letter/email formed part of their portfolio?

Above opinion is based on a family member who has recently qualified into some aspect of the social services...and , after being previously very vocal on certain things...wound her neck in. Appears to have found her comfort zone now though and is flaring up again...often appearing to 'over-egg the pudding'.

And here’s my response:

Dear Mrs xxxxxx,

I write in reply to your email and am disgusted at your virtue signalling within it.

How dare you tell me that I should be ashamed for the colour of my skin, how dare you imply that because I am white I am a casual racist.

I was born to hard working parents who taught me the values of hard work and accepting people for who they are and how they conducted themselves, not the colour of their skin, their gender, their nationality, religion or sexual persuasion. I carried this ethic into the British Army for which I served twenty seven years, during which I was very seriously injured and saw many friends die. None of this is privileged, it’s hard won and your comments diminish not only my life, but many others, this also affects my children, one of whom you are supposed to educate and help grow into a decent human being. I feel your email fails greatly in this respect, you should be beyond bandwagon jumping to help young people see through the fog.

You also mislead in you email. George Floyd was not a peaceful person, in 2009 he was convicted of assault and armed robbery after a home invasion where he jabbed a firearm into a pregnant woman’s stomach, who was also struck in the head and sides by Floyd. Before this he was convicted of a number of charges of armed robbery and drug possession. He was known as a violent offender to the police and on the day of his death had been reported for an offence that the police had to attend. I’m not an expert on police procedure, but I suspect dealing with a violent, gun possessing criminal takes a degree of control of the situation and whilst I don’t condone his death, there is more to this than him being the martyr you and others have made him out to be. It’s not that black lives matter, ALL lives matter and if the Police were wrong in his death, that’s a matter for justice, it doesn’t make make all white people privileged or racist.

It’s quite possible you need to get out and see a little of the world rather than passing judgement from your high alter.

I feel you have erred greatly and I now have concerns for my son’s education within your class and if your current conduct will allow him to approach the subject matter effectively with a balanced and fair view.

I have copied a number of people in to this email as I wish it to be registered as a complaint of your conduct and feel it should be investigated.

Could someone contact me to discuss this further.
Out-fucking-standing!
 
Here’s a lovely email my son received from school today:

Hello everyone!

Hope you had a lovely half term and your quizzes have gone well so far- the end is in sight. The focus of today’s bulletin is something that we would have already been spending much of the week talking about if we were in school like normal and that is the death of George Floyd and its implications.

As I’m sure you’ll have heard, George Floyd was an unarmed black man, a peace activist and respected community leader, detained by white police and subsequently died at their hands, murdered by Officer Derek Chauvin. This has sparked protests across the US and in areas of the UK and celebrities have tried to raise awareness through Blackout Tuesday across social media. Now, this is not a new issue- I can even remember talking to some of you guys about this in a Y8 RE lesson and playing you ‘White Privilege II’ by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. What I would like us all to think about today is the role that each of us plays in ending the need for such action.

1. For those among us who are white, check your privilege. Be aware that you have been born into a situation of privilege. You do not need to be scared if the police arrest you. You do not assume that when you don’t get a job it is because of your skin colour. If you are unsure of what privilege means or how it might affect things, then check out this powerful video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K5fbQ1-zps

2. Educate yourselves. Make yourself aware of what others are going through but also educate yourself about different cultures and ways of living.

3. Challenge racism. It is not enough to not be racist we must be anti-racist. This means refusing to accept or tolerate when those around us act in a racist way.

4. Advocate for those who have less of a voice. Your race may have given you a voice that is more likely to be heard than someone else’s. You need to speak out and claim justice for those who cannot.

5. Continue to reflect and progress. This is not an issue that is going to be over in 2020 and it is important that we make a conscious effort to continue to improve ourselves to help. Personally, I am going to buy Francesca more books featuring diversity so that she understands and accepts as she grows up.


Time for reflection

Here is an article about the experience of African-Americans when it comes to law and order in the US. How does this make you feel? Does it inspire you to want to make a change?

The so-called "teacher" needs to write a letter of resignation, including a demand to be replaced by a black candidate.
 
I don't really care if it is.

What really fucks me off about this is the common perception that all teachers are dribbling socialist mongs who couldn't fill in a job application for a private sector job yet are simultaneously clever enough to indoctrinate children into a whole worldview of thinking.

If I could indoctrinate kids I can guarantee they would leave 5 years later knowing some basic physics equations, how to rearrange an equation, what a conical flask is and what happens in photosynthesis. Since I have failed miserably over the last 2 and a bit months to get some 15 year olds to manage to add 1 + 1 using a calculator I think we can conclude I'm not going to be instigating the dictatorship of the proletariat any time soon.

Then some ******* mong sends out a letter like that and the perception of 'teacher = lefty mong" gets reset. *******.
Calm down, Trotsky...

Ironically, despite all their virtue signalling and black lives matter, there is only one BAME person on the whole of the school staff. Proper equality that.
 
Yes and no.

Yes, we are expected to not be mongs. This is apparently different to other establishments :rolleyes: Messages home should be brief, factual, about the work set and sent in normal working hours.

We are not expected to send long rambling missives about social issues. Nothing should be contradictory as statements on policy are sent out by the grownups and individual teachers should restrict themselves to doing their ******* jobs.

That's not saying there isn't dissent, it's just kept in internal emails and meetings. For some reason it's considered better to have people send slightly rude emails to colleagues than to post bollocks outside the secure system for everyone to see.


You're referring to the 'teaching children to be gay' issue? It had its own thread on here a while back and I can't be arsed to repeat everything I wrote in that - https://www.arrse.co.uk/community/threads/panorama-tonight-the-teaching-of-lgbt-in-schools.293982/
After being the Bursar at a large independent boarding school for a couple of years... I never ever ever ever want to work with teachers or anywhere near education ever again.

Teachers are generally of two types. Those who have worked in private industry, been out in the real world (e.g. had a proper job) and have got into teaching.
And the others, went to school, went to university and have gone back to school.

The former are generally sound, rational folks and I got on well with them. The latter, often worse than the kids.

Actually if you think about it they've never left school; primary, secondary and tertiary full time education.

The two men who taught me D&T were both WWII vets, Bomber Command and RN and had both served apprenticeships (of the seven year variety not the one year apprentice lite) both were excellent at teaching and had real lives to look back on.

I should imagine it's possible to start teaching pupils, qualifying at the age of 22-23, having never worked for a living or left mummy and daddy's house. A well rounded educator? Perhaps not.

<THREAD DRIFT ON>
The Headmaster (who was a colossal prick) actually described many teachers as "social rejects".
His attitude was they couldn't work elsewhere which is why they were in teaching. Nice.

This might have been true for the odd one, but I didn't share that view.

We had a cracking Business Studies teacher, he had worked in marketing and business ops, then got into teaching when he had kids as the money was steady and the holidays suited his lifestyle (no childcare issues, Mrs was a teacher too). He was well respected by kids and support staff, but was not a yes man, so the head forced him out.

Otherwise the never leaving school thing is very true. e.g. During routine inspections I see a teachers chair is in a very poor state, so H&S workstation consideration, I order a new suitable chair.

Cue teachers in my office - each exchange like this:
Teacher "I want a new chair. I heard such and such has a new one"
KoR: "Is your damaged or not working?"
T: "errrr no"
KoR: "is it a suitable chair for a workstation, adjustable, etc etc"
T: "errr yes"
KoR "well you can't have a new one yet. Priority is broken/unsuitable chairs"
T: "but I want a new one, such and such has a new one"
repeat ad infinitum....................

Legally speaking there's nothing stopping a school hiring anyone as an unqualified teacher on their 18th birthday.

If you're insisting on someone qualified then they could be starting their NQT year at 20 if they've done a 3 year BEd degree straight from A levels.

Speechless.
 
Go one further and tell them you consider their implied message as having elements of 'hate speech' within - and watch them collectively shit themselves.
There’s no “implied” about it.
 
I don't really care if it is.

15:00 actually. Not forgetting the INSET days we schedule just to mess with childcare arrangements, we're actually in the pub the whole day.

He called me a homophobic, racist thug.







I was so upset by his comments that I went out drinking, lost my temper and beat up a black poof.
