Dallas Activist Group Demands White Parents Pledge to Not Send Children to Ivy League Schools

If you have ever heard about Dallas, Texas, you are likely to know three things: the women are beautiful, the husbands are rich, and Cowboy Football is king. The people that live in the wealthy and affluent Dallas neighborhood of Highland Park, who are statistically more likely to have a BLM sign in their yard than a MAGA sign, would pay or do whatever it took to get their children into Ivy League schools.

This all might change as a progressive “anti-racism” group, Dallas Justice Now (DJN), is hoping to show that the white Highland Park moms are racist for getting their white children into Ivy League colleges.

Dallas Justice Now, which supports “defunding and re-defining the Dallas Police Department,” reportedly sent letters to the homes of Highland Park families asking them to take the “college pledge” not to send their children to Harvard or its equivalent.

The letter stated that because these students live in the Highland Park Independent School District, they “benefit from enormous privileges taken at the expense of communities of color.”

“Whether you know it or not, you earned or inherited your money through oppressing people of color,” the letter stated. The group assured that to make Dallas more “just,” these parents need to take the “pledge that [their] children will not apply or attend any Ivy League School or US News & World Report Top 50 School.”

Dallas Justice Now Pledge: 

“As a white person with privilege both from my whiteness and my neighborhood I recognize the need to make sacrifices for the purpose of correcting hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated upon people of color. I understand that access to top schools is a key component in economic and social advancement. Therefore, I commit that my children will not apply to or attend any Ivy League School or US News & World Report Top 50 School so that position at that school is available for people of color to help correct historical wrongs. If I do not have children under 18 then I will commit to encouraging my white privileged friends, neighbors, and family members with children to sign the pledge and holding them accountable until they do so.”

DJN sent out these letters to families in Highland Park who gave money or otherwise supported the Black Lives Matter hate group or are otherwise “one of [their] white allies.”

The group wrote that “these schools have afforded white families privilege for generations.” The mere act of sending their students to top schools is an act of racism because it “takes away spaces from students of color who really need the job opportunities, education, and influence that these schools provide.”

And don’t worry, the group knows that “this sounds like a tough commitment to make” but that it will genuinely show they are willing to give more than the “minimal effort … in the fight for racial justice.”
