The next phase of the woke revolution arrives. “Social justice” is coming for smug white lefties where it hurts:
I’m dead right now. 😂Highland Park is one of the richest areas in Texas. These Democrat parents would walk across hot coals & plan a murder for the chance their kids go to an Ivy League or other top schools. Then they get this from a Black Lives Matter Organization. 😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/WlmxNRiPco

Here is the text of the “College Pledge” by Dallas Justice Now:
To Our White Allies:
Talk is not enough. Commit yourself towards taking action and making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice. Open up spaces for Black and LatinX communities by refusing to send your kids to Ivy League and US News & World Report Top 50 schools and encourage friends, neighbors, and family members to do the same. Imagine if those hundreds of thousands of spots at these institutions were occupied only by marginalized communities. Imagine the opportunities. We can achieve true equity within our lifetimes but only if white folks are willing to sacrifice their privileges.
The Dallas Justice NOW College Pledge:
As a white person with privilege both from my whiteness and my neighborhood I recognize the need to make sacrifices for the purpose of correcting hundreds of years of murder, slavery, discrimination, and lack of educational and economic opportunities perpetrated upon people of color. I understand that access to top schools is a key component in economic and social advancement. Therefore, I commit that my children will not apply to or attend any Ivy League School or US News & World Report Top 50 School so that position at that school is available for people of color to help correct historical wrongs. If I do not have children under 18 then I will commit to encouraging my white privileged friends, neighbors, and family members with children to sign the pledge and holding them accountable until they do so.
Have you been asked to take the pledge? Don’t be a racist hypocrite. Sign the pledge today!
Dallas Justice NOW
Please note Dallas Justice Now will be publicly announcing the names of those who have and have not signed the pledge.
The threat at the end is a nice touch. If you don’t sign, you know what will happen next: you’ll be branded with the scarlet R-word.
The benefit of this letter is that it makes explicit what the CRT advocates try to obfuscate, which is that their ultimate aim is radical redistributionism, if not some kind of retribution (but call it “reparations”)….
It will be fun to watch wealthy white liberal elites squirm as they struggle to say “no” to these demands while maintaining their fierce loyalty to supporting “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” …
I think the climatistas should get in on the act and demand that Marin County homeowners all remove their gas-powered Wolf and Viking ranges in their fancy kitchens, and go all-electric (from solar and wind power only of course) immediately, because we have a “climate crisis” don’t you know. It’s a small sacrifice compared to keeping your kids away from Harvard in the cause of BIPOC justice.
The left really didn’t think this through. They started identity group politics to get more votes. So they tore up the considerable progress towards harmonious racially-mixed and color-blind societies. An electoral strategy based on appealing to a majority of the electorate on the basis of race, sex, and gender just creates hate and prejudice. The harvest will be bitter indeed. The demand above is but a straw in the wind.
