Principal Says Jelly Sandwiches Are Racist

Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland told the Portland Tribune she is reprogramming her staff to recognize that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are an example of insensitive racism stemming from "white privilege' in American society.


Gutierrez explains, “Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year...What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?”

So Gutierrez setup a race-boot-camp for her teachers to include,  “intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,” to help educators understand their own “white privilege,” in order to “change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance.”

Gutierrez says her 'mandate' is improve education for students of color, particularly Black and Brown boys - her words folks. Sorta like a red-guard cultural revolution purge...
