Big U.S. School District ‘Submits to Islamic Supremacy’
October 6, 2016
One of the nation’s largest school districts has adopted a resolution banning “hate speech” against Muslim students while accusing America of having “a long history of racism and xenophobia.”
The controversial resolution, unanimously approved by the Kansas City Board of Education on Sept. 28, states that there are 30,000 Muslims living in the greater Kansas City area, “making invaluable contributions to our economy, our social and political life, and our culture.”
It goes on to state that discrimination on the basis of religion, “and against Muslims in particular, is deeply embedded within our country’s long history of racism and xenophobia.”
The Sept. 28 meeting was reportedly packed with local Muslims seeking to show their support for the resolution. Shaheen Ahmed of the Crescent Peace Society, a Kansas City interfaith organization, requested the board to adopt the resolution and the Muslims were hoping that other school districts would follow the lead of Kansas City and adopt similar resolutions, according to a tweet by Mahnaz Shabbir, an adviser to the Crescent Peace Society who also attended the meeting.
