Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 14, 2022

A teacher at a Pflugerville Texas ISD middle school is on administrative leave after a video containing an "inappropriate conversation" started circulating around social media. In the video, the teacher was captured saying, "deep down in my heart, I'm ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the superior one."

"I think the most disturbing piece is that it was a situation where kids had experienced this real-time," said Lyons.

The teacher hasn't been identified along with what led up to the conversation.

Parent Brian Hennington said this kind of thing should never happen in a school.

"There are other personal experiences we've had as people of color that we had individually, but to see this in the classroom setting is just not acceptable," said Hennington.

My money says that this teacher definitely didn't vote for Beto. /s Best comment was the young man who said (paraphrase) "I used to respect you. I don't respect you anymore."

He gets it.

In the video, the teacher was captured saying, "deep down in my heart, I'm ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the superior one."

He goes on to say that he believes everyone else thinks that way too if they are honest. He believes that everyone thinks their race is superior, but not everyone is willing to admit it. IOW, he can't conceive of anyone believing "All men are created equal."

I think he's getting a raw deal, we should be able to talk about this stuff. However, prolly not the best time/forum for his level of honesty.

What other forms of racist indoctrination do you approve of in schools?

It sounds like he's equating race with ethnicity and racism with ethnocentrism. That's debatable, since it's a semantic argument, but where he went wrong was saying everyone thinks their race/ethnicity is superior. Not everyone considers race/ethnicity part of their identity. But for those who do, it would be more accurate to say those people have a bias or higher priority towards those things they identify with.

If you want to find out what someone's strongest biases are, ask them to draw an identity map.

I wonder what Gov DeSantis might have to say about this?

As a 2024 hopeful, and based upon what he's done in Florida, I'm sure he had a comment....

I know I'm superior. Not because of race but just because I am.

I went to high school in the Seventies, teachers used to say stuff like this all the time.
Am I strange because I don't consider my race as part of my identity at all? Maybe my ethnicity, as an American of Italian descent.
On that subject, once they take that guy off the pizza box then we can talk about racial stereotypes.

Agreed; just not in a classroom or any other public setting where the power dynamic is skewed toward the speaker.

Social media exists for that kind of nonsense. Or, if he wants to interact with other people of similar outlook, social clubs (e.g. KKK) also exist.

When do you think the best time is for a teacher to tell students that white people are superior?
He's not in trouble because he was talking "about this stuff." He's in trouble because he is using his position to spread his racist ideology.

I know I am not superior. When I am honest and open with myself, I see the evidence of that truth all around me on a regular basis. It is only my strong ego and overly elevated sense of self worth that sometimes tricks me into believing otherwise. I suspect that this arrogant trait of perceiving one's self (and others like us) to be 'superior' may be an evolutionary trait that reinforces individual resolve to survive and multiply.

"Deep down in my heart, I'm ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the superior one."

If he had ended "which means I'm racist" this would have been less confusing.

"He could have been defining "ethnocentrism" for the class"

I think he did a pretty good job defining it, saying he's it, and teaching that it's racist.

"White pride and white power are expressions primarily used by white separatist, white nationalist, fascist, neo-Nazi and white supremacist organizations in order to signal racist or racialist viewpoints."

I feel superior just reading that!

One thing I love about the Drudge Retort:

Not too many other places you can find someone who will look you dead in the eye and tell you former MTV personality Jon Stewart ain't White.

Since republicans will take one fluke crazy liberal teacher doing something dumb and use them to pretend it's a massive problem throughout the country's schools, liberals should do the same thing with this guy.

While your dumbass is at it, can you explain it to the young blacks who grew up fatherless because of Biden's '94 crime bill where he bragged about throwing young people in jail over a piece or crack the size of a white bean? And how Clinton flanked him? then you can break them down further by explaining to them how Biden was on record against integration of public schools because he didn't want his kids to be raised in a "jungle"

And while you're at it let them know that they were against same sex marriage too.

Stupid ass

Yes everyone remembers how in '94 republicans were campaigning for mercy against criminals and letting gay people get married.

In reality your party IS STILL supporting the policies youre complaining about dems supporting 32 years ago.

"Yes everyone remembers how in '94 republicans were campaigning for mercy against criminals and letting gay people get married."

Exactly.

"Remember 30 years ago when Democrats were as bad as Republicans" isn't exactly a selling point for Republicans.

Buy don't tell Republicans that!
