Minnesota Mom’s Powerful Statement Against Teaching “Ethnic Studies” in Public Schools

In a recent hearing in Minnesota, local mom Kofi Montzka spoke out against teaching Ethnic Studies in public schools, specifically elementary schools. The video of her speech is worth watching in full:

A few of the standout lines from this video:

  • “You might ask why in the world would a black person speak against Ethnic Studies? Because not everything that sounds good is good.”
  • “This curriculum will not help kids of color succeed. All it does is remove any reason to try. And I repeat that: It removes any reason to try.”
  • “You want to tell my kids & other kids of color that they can’t succeed? It’s shameful, it’s terrible. I ask that you please vote against this bill.”
  • “If this law is passed, teaching this hopelessness to kids of color will be mandated starting in K. I can see why you white proponents of this bill might support it. It’s not your kids being told they can’t succeed. You get to shed some of your white guilt in the process.”

Good for this mom for speaking out. Her voice is going to make a difference in this conversation.
