When does teaching become 'terrorism' at a NY school?

Black Lives Matter protesterA black conservative organization is denouncing a recent New York school district for holding a "Black Lives Matter" day.

Council Nedd II of Project 21, a conservative black group, says the resolutions from the Rochester City School District proclaiming Black Lives Matter Day contradicts civilized society.

The event was held Friday, Feb. 17 with the theme of "A Day of Understanding and Affirmation." 

"Essentially the Rochester schools have decided we're going to side with terrorists," says Nedd, "and create a special day to honor essentially what amounts to a terrorist organization over supporting people who keep law and order and provide peace to their community."

The argument to designate BLM a "terrorist organization" was spelled out in this Front Page Magazine story written last July, when a BLM member shot and killed Dallas police officers. That same month, this commentary from black columnist Aaron Morris, written a week later, says that label belongs with the New Black Panthers, not BLM. 

Citing an email sent to teachers and staff, Daily Wire reports the school district even took issue with the idea of "all lives matter," a suggestion that has been denounced by the Black Lives Matter movement. 

"Of course all lives matter," the email states. "However, 57% of our students are black, and by almost every measure, people of color are not treated equally by our society."

To emphasize that "all lives matter" is wrong, teachers were advised to read stories at left-wing websites Huffington Post and Vox.

Nedd describes the event as "far-left silliness" but says it's children who could suffer the consequences from such an event if they participate in dangerous and unlawful actions carried out by Black Lives Matter.
