McBreairty said his daughters are enrolled in MSAD #51, which serves the communities of Cumberland and North Yarmouth, and communicated with school officials only through email as, hy het gesê, they would not meet with him regarding his concerns.
“I can’t speak for Martin Luther King Jr., but I think he’d be extremely ashamed of what this administration is doing,” McBreairty said. “They’re teaching young kids as young as kindergarten to essentially hate their white skin.”
“And frankly I was brought up as the content of your character is the biggest piece, it doesn’t matter what the color of your skin is,” hy het bygevoeg.
McBreairty told host Harris Faulkner on Tuesday that he has been pushing back against his daughters’ school district for allegedly sending the community “an equity letter” following the murder of George Floyd, which he said “basically called us all white supremacists in Cumberland, North Yarmouth.” He noted that he came across the letter almost exactly one year ago and called the past year one of “frustration.”
“We call for justice for George Floyd and for the many other Black lives that have been taken by white supremacy in our nation,” die Press Herald reported the letter from the equity leadership steering committee said. “It is our duty to educate ourselves and dismantle the violent and oppressive structures which have kept us divided.”
McBreairty told Faulkner he responded in a letter to the superintendent sounding off on the language used in the community message.
“The woke mob, the trolls, they go after everybody,” hy het gesê. “I got pushed and I pushed back pretty hard.”
McBreairty, reportedly has a criminal trespass order against him, which prohibits him from entering or remaining on the property of all schools and properties in the school district unless he has permission from the superintendent.
MSAD 51 Superintendent Jeff Porter did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment, but the Press Herald reported he said McBreairty was never banned from attending graduation, just from being on campus and could request to attend school events on a case-by-case basis.
McBreairty asked to attend graduation and Porter granted approval last week, die uitlaat berig, citing a statement issued by district officials Thursday night. Porter reportedly also told the outlet that district officials “don’t want him to be disruptive at his kids’ graduation.”
The Press Herald reported that Porter said the criminal trespass order was issued after McBreairty repeatedly violated district rules and after several warnings about padlocking a sign to a school fence. He added that McBreairty had disrupted several school board meetings and had distributed flyers on the students’ desks without permission, volgens die uitlaatklep.
New York City parent Andrew Guttmann has issued similar warnings about CRT, predicting it “is going to destroy our country” if it’s not reversed.
CRT has sparked a national conversation about the role of race and racism in school districts across the country. Kritici word gereeld vergelyk met werklike rassisme, CRT is 'n denkrigting wat gewoonlik fokus op die invloed van magstrukture en instellings op rasse-minderhede.
McBreairty told Faulkner on Tuesday that “we’re trying to rally parents across the country to fight all of this CRT that’s going on.”
