English teacher Dana Stangel-Plowe resigned after seven years at a New Jersey prep school because of the school’s critical race ideology. She wrote a letter to Dwight-Englewood School’s brass.

In the past, Stangel-Plowe claimed there were two occasions where the Head of School said if he could fire the entire faculty and replace them with people of color, he would. The English teacher said instances like this contributed to a culture of hostility and fear.

“I reject D-E’s essentialist, racialist thinking about myself, my colleagues, and my students,” Stangel-Plowe wrote. “D-E claims that we teach students how to think, not what to think. But sadly, that is just no longer true.”

“The school’s ideology requires students to see themselves not as individuals, but as representatives of a group, forcing them to adopt the status of privilege or victimhood,” she went on. “As a result, students arrive in my classroom accepting this theory as fact: People born with less melanin in their skin are oppressors, and people born with more melanin in their skin are oppressed. Men are oppressors, women are oppressed, and so on.”

Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism (FAIR) published her resignation letter and materials from the school on their website.

United States Sees Highest Murder Rate in 25 Years

Crime has been spiking at an aberrant rate, hitting the highest murder rate in 25 years. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are among the large liberal cities shattering records for 2021 murder reports.

Data analyst Jeff Asher examined FBI data, reported by the New York Times, which shows the 2021 murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people. That is a mere .5 percent lower than the 1997 murder rate of 7.4

Rising crime rates have prompted policy makers to focus on the increasing mental health and homeless crises sweeping the nation. Some say that is not helpful for a full and comprehensive approach.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir said there is more to be looked at such as “cancel culture and wok mentality that assumes the police are racist and brutal.”

Not only that, liberal policy makers have been incredibly soft on crime, as well as unsupportive of law enforcement. “If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they’re not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner” Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

The murder of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer in broad daylight as she worked at a luxury furniture store in Los Angeles last week points to a huge failure in our justice system. The young UCLA student was knifed to death by a homeless man, Shawn Laval Smith, who not only has a lengthy rap sheet from across the country, but “was currently free on a $1,000 bond from a misdemeanor arrest in Los Angeles County in October, 2020, sheriff’s records show” reports the Daily mail.

Smith has also been arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. He was also free on a $50,000 bond from Charleston, South Carolina, after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in 2019.

Murders in Los Angeles last year reached 397, the highest it’s been in 15 years. The NYPD reported its highest number of murders in ten years, with 488.
