Christopher Rufo – who is leading the charge against Critical Race Theory – received exclusive leaked documents showing that Philadelphia Public Schools taught their students “that ‘George Floyd was killed by a police officer’ and that America is built on a ‘pyramid of hate’ culminating in ‘genocide .’ This came the day after the verdict came down that former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin was guilty.
The lesson plans – State V. Derek Chauvin – received by Rufo are meant for Kindergarteners to 12th grade. The materials instruct the teachers to “mentally, emotionally, and physically prepare” to talk with their “students about the murder of George Floyd.”
The teachers have the choice to click between the five following links to educate themselves “regarding race and racism”:
Notice that there isn’t a single conservative voice sitting on that list. The left’s narrative is the only acceptable thought.
Finally, the teachers are asked to discuss the "Pyramid of Hate" with the children as young as four years old, teaching that "our society" is built on "biased attitudes," "systemic discrimination," and "bias-motivated violence," which can lead to "genocide." pic.twitter.com/HKCQ7OvSpI

It is understandable that at the middle school and high school level, History or English classrooms would take the Derek Chauvin trial and create several teaching moments. However, this is a heavily Democrat-run school system; the teachers are required to indoctrinate their students. A moment that could be a chance to create a better society is instead used to poison the next generation’s minds so the Democrats could gain more power.
The Philadelphia Public School System doesn’t just require that middle school and high school students. Students as young as Kindergarten will be asked: “If/what they know about George Floyd”; If/what they know about the news regarding Derek Chauvin’s trial”; “How they are feeling and if they have anything they want to share about their feelings.”
After forcing students from K-2nd to shoulder the burden of adults and answer questions on adult manufactured issues, they are then required to watch a slide deck called: Social Story for George Floyd. The slides include pictographs depicting different anti-cop rhetoric like, “For many years, some police officers have hurt African Americans.”
“Remember,” the documents instructed, “students do not owe us an explanation for their trauma; allow them to process the information you just shared in a way that is healthy for them.” I would consider forcing kids to participate in racist anti-white and anti-cop rhetoric qualifying as trauma.
The materials urge teachers to talk to their students. To engage with them about things, like how “to take action.” Other suggestions are how to “talk with others about what happened to George Floyd and the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement by sharing information on social media, having individual conversations, or organizing an educational event in the school or community.”
Unfortunately for 3rd through 5th graders, they don’t get to enjoy the simple graphics and covert anti-white racism. Teachers are required to “conduct a read-aloud or shared reading” of the summary of George Floyd’s death. The material reads like George Floyd was an innocent man led to the slaughter by the angry white cop who only had racism in his heart.
Third graders are required to read or be read: “On the video, Floyd was heard saying, “Please, I can’t breathe. My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts. … (I need) water or something. Please. Please. I can’t breathe, officer. … I cannot breathe. I cannot breathe.”
Rufo said that “teachers are asked to discuss the ‘Pyramid of Hate’ with the children as young as four years old, teaching that ‘our society’ is built on ‘biased attitudes,’ ‘systemic discrimination, ‘ and ‘bias-motivated violence,’ which can lead to ‘genocide.'”
Even though the material does admit that the “officers had responded to a call about a man suspected of forgery,” it failed to highlight that George Floyd bullied a teenager working in the same store he was defrauding that day. The material never mentions that George Floyd fought the police or asked to be put on the ground.
Nor should it have. It is highly inappropriate for the school to be teaching these children about a case such as this. The “racism is everywhere” burden is one for adults to carry, not our children. It is time to take your children out of public schools. They teach them to hate their family’s way of life and hate America. There is no benefit to their education.
