San Francisco school to change Abraham Lincoln name because he didn’t show ‘black lives ever mattered’

“I say in relation to the principle that all men are created equal, let it be nearly reached as we can” – Abraham Lincoln

“I say in relation to the principle that all men are created equal, let it be nearly reached as we can.” – Abraham Lincoln.  

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, is considered by many to be one of the greatest presidents in the history of our great nation. 

Perhaps his greatest legacy is saving the union and abolishing slavery. For Lincoln, the two were linked together; “The Union must be preserved in the purity of its principles as well as the integrity of its territorial parts” 

But one school in San Francisco disagrees and plans to change their name. 

Abraham Lincoln High School is set to change their name because they think the former president is “problematic” and didn’t do enough to prove that “black lives ever mattered” to him. 

The San Francisco United School District’s School Names Advisory Committee issued a proposal this week that called for the renaming of dozens of schools because their namesakes weren’t deferential enough to black people, BizPacReview reports. 

Members of the committee believe all of the namesakes, including Lincoln, “lived a life so stained with racism, oppression or human rights violations, they do not deserve to have their name on a school building.” 

“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,” committee chairman Jeremiah Jeffries told the San Francisco Chronicle.

“Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions,” he added. 

The Chronicle also noted that Jeffries “said the narrative of Lincoln’s legacy is false” and that “the Civil War was not fought over slavery or the liberation of black people.” 

“Lincoln, like the presidents before him and most after, did not show through policy or rhetoric that black lives ever mattered to them outside of human capital and as casualties of wealth building,” he said. 

Also included in the proposal are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and even Paul Revere. 

The proposal falls directly in line with the left’s attempts to essentially eliminate and rewrite American history – based on today’s standards – by renaming football teams, buildings and even removing – or toppling – statues.

    Is it because he was a white man? He started the civil rights movement.

    So stupid. They should be focused on violence in the schools instead of nitpicking on a name of a school.

    I wonder how the tax payer feel, because now they are spending money changing ridiculous names instead of using it to educate our younger generation. You need to embrace our history and understand where our country has been in order not to make the same mistakes.

    This shows how uneducated, no, stupid, these people are for voting for this nonsense! What exactly do these people expect from this man, Abraham Lincoln, after he abolished slavery? I guess changing our country’s whole outlook on purchasing a man or woman of color wasn’t enough?! What ignorance! He loved people of color and respected them. The problem these days is no one has respect for themselves, much less our leaders and servicemen.

    That has got to be the biggest crock of crap I’ve ever heard. How can anyone say the man that freed slaves didn’t do enough. As a black man and moreover a man I find this repulsive. Time for all these sensitive people to grow up.

    Please stop this ridiculousness! It is our history! I don’t give a crap if you are offended, how the heck do you think America is the country that it is! You or me probably wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our history GOOD OR BAD. President Lincoln did more for this country than You or I ever will.
    I don’t understand what the schools are teaching our kids these days ? They sure don’t teach Patronage, Respect or lessons from what our forefathers fought and died for! Sickening, the ignorance, dis-respect and BS coming out of the mentality of today’s people….. Done

    So if they are now saying that the civil war was not about slavery, does that mean the confederate flag is now accepted as something other than a banner of racism???

    I wonder when this dude is going o work on changing the name of the Democratic Party which fostered the Civil War, Jim Crowe, KKK , filibustered Civil Rights Act. I guess never because that would take real balls. After all they are the party of cancellation.

    Stupid, small people! You can’t reach back in history over 200 years and expect those alive at that time to hold the same ridiculous views you do today. Stupid, small people, I repeat!

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

Published

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Alabama Judge Removed from Bench, Called Another Black Judge ‘Uncle Tom’

Jefferson County Judge Nakita Blocton also called another judge a ‘fat b****’ and an employee a ‘heifer’

One Alabama Judge is being removed from her bench after committing ethics violations and using horrifically racist rhetoric towards a Black judge. Jefferson County Judge Nakita Blocton called one judge an “Uncle Tom” which is a derogatory term used to accuse a Black person of being a traitor to the Black community and being “overly allegiant to White people” explains Fox News.

Blocton herself is Black. On December 10, all nine judges on Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary acted to remove Blocton from the bench. They also ordered her to pay the costs of their proceedings.

Findings from a commission that filed a complaint against the judge for ethics violations found she “engaged in a pattern of practice of making inappropriate comments – for example, calling one judge ‘Uncle Tom’ and another judge a ‘fat b****’ and calling an employee a heifer.”

Blocton also repeatedly abused staff, attorneys and litigants, and verbally abused and belittled another employee. Fox News reports:

Blocton also used several Facebook aliases to communicate with litigants in pending domestic-relations cases in an effort to affect the outcome of those cases, according to the commission.

She also engaged in “a pattern of dishonesty and deception” by using the aliases to provide information to litigants in cases and asking potential witnesses to delete evidence related to the commission’s investigation and attempting to influence testimony.

According to an initial complaint made against the judge in May, one person involved in divorce litigation said the judge used online aliases to send several threatening messages which included, “THE DEVIL IS WATCHING U,” “LEAVE THOSE BLACK WOMEN DEMOCRATS ALONE.”

The commission failed to gather enough evidence to support other allegations against Brocton, including that the judge was using drugs, was mentally unstable and made an inappropriate campaign contribution to a Birmingham mayoral candidate.
