American Critical Race Theory is reaching the point that Marxism did in the Soviet Union in the 70s where no one understood what it was and just labeled anything they didn’t like as capitalist reactionary bourgeois attitudes. Critical Race Theory is equally encompassing and equally idiotic. So here’s what we get.
First the San Francisco School Board decided to rename 44 schools because they are named after people with ties to racism or slavery. Now the Arts Department has taken a bold move by changing its name, “VAPA” because they say, “acronyms are a symptom of white supremacy culture.”
Schools have yet to reopen in San Francisco, but their Arts Department has continued to work toward ensuring that all students have access to quality arts education.
The director of that department said, “We are prioritizing antiracist arts instruction in our work.” So they got rid of the acronym “VAPA,” which is short for visual and performing arts.
A quality education means antiracist educators not actually teaching in schools, but renaming school departments to be more antiracism.
Because it’s not about the students, it’s about the cultural revolution.
But you’ll never guess what they renamed that acronym to…
“It is a very simple step we can take to just be referred to as the SFUSD Arts Department for families to better understand who we are,” explained Sam Bass, Director of the SFUSD Arts Department.
VAPA is white supremacy, but not SFUSD. If you have to ask… you’re part of the problem.
