Could White teachers have stopped the ambush of NYPD police officers?

Recently, the ambush of NYPD police officers was perpetrated by a Black male resulting in the death of two police officers. The history of ambushing police has a long history of being committed by extremist. Many of the extremist views are birthed in schools that perpetuate a tradition of classroom racism (Pertcrism).

The lone gunman who facilitated the ambush of NYPD police officers had a troublesome past which contributed to his extremism. According to Huntington Post, Ismaaiyl Brinsley had a long criminal record, a hatred for police and the government and an apparent history of mental instability that included an attempt to hang himself a year ago.

The hatred that Black youths develop for police officers begins in the classroom due to the racism that exist in schools and how schools use police officers to reinforce school authority.

The racism against Black students begins in preschool. According to the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights, Black preschool children represent 18% of school enrollment while representing 48% of the out of school suspensions. White preschool students represent 43% of school enrollment while representing 26% of the out of school suspensions. The same pattern continues for Black students.

Black students are over disciplined when compared to White students as they progress through school. Blacks are three times more likely to be suspended from school when compared to Whites. The average quantity of Whites who are either suspended or expelled is 5%, while the average for Black students is 16%.

Due to the racism against Blacks by White female teachers in the classrooms, cops begin an interaction process that leads many Black students to hate and despise cops which can lead to interactions such as the ambush of NYPD police officers.

When students are deemed a legal challenge for schools, the first agency that a school administrator will call is the police. The outcome of the police interaction is devastating for Black students. Black students represent 16% of the student population while representing 27% of the students referred to law enforcement and 31% of who are subject to school related arrest. White students represent 51% of the student population while representing 41% of the students referred to law enforcement and 39% who are subject to school related arrest.

It is no wonder why so many Black male youths are involved in confrontations with White cops. The Black student opposition to Whites begins in the classroom against White female teachers. The end result is Black hatred for cops which can result in such incidents as the ambush of NYPD officers.

But is does not stop there. Many White students who are privileged by the racism against Blacks can also develop hatred towards cops that can lead to such events as the ambush of NYPD police officers.

In a recent ambush of two police officers, two alleged White supremacist ambushed two local police officers and several civilians. According to the Las Vegas Sun, police investigators found swastika symbols in their apartment. Neighbors told the authorities that the couple voiced their racist anti-government views and boasted about their gun collection.

Each White supremacist is a product of our educational system. At one time in their lives they sat in a classroom. They either witnessed and benefited from the racial attacks on Blacks or benefited from the lack of teacher cultural sensitivity to teach and demonstrate to White children to respect people from all ethnicities. These are the White students who take racism to an extreme, believe that they are above all races, and participate in interactions such as the NYPD ambush of police officers and in their case it was the ambush of police officers in Las Vegas.

While the ambush of NYPD police officers has resulted in police stations beefing up security and placing police on alert, they must implement strategies that address the root cause of the problem. The root of the problem is racism in the classroom. The only way to eliminate interactions such as the ambush of NYPD police officers is to eliminate classroom racism (Elcloomism) which involves promoting positive racial teacher student classroom relationships (Properateasclaships).

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L.

    Where do the PARENTS of all students regardless of race fit into this????? Children often emulate what they see in the home . To insinuate that teachers are somehow responsible for how a child turns out is irresponsible at best. They play a role, yes however, PARENTS play a larger role and should be held accountable as we’ll.
