School District Uses Tax Dollars to Purchase Social Justice Manuals

Schools in Omaha, Nebraska, have used $130,000 in federal stimulus money to purchase 8,000 “social justice” diversity manuals that include inherently racist assertions and tout the federal government as the only thing capable of ensuring equity. The manuals will be required staff reading for employees at Omaha schools.

Entitled The Cultural Proficiency Journal: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change, the manual is dubbed as a “manifesto on cultural awareness.”

According to the manual, the federal government and other institutions “channel wealth and power to white people,” and therefore calls upon educators to “take action on social justice.”
