” Families of Color Playground Night,” is what a marquee reads in Denver, Colorado. In a bid to appease white liberals the Denver Public school system has re-instated segregation, an evil practice of separating the races. So hated that in the 1950s and 60s the Civil Rights Movement was birthed to destroy its heinous practice.
This week in woke news:
Denver Public Schools implementing racially segregated playground times to promote “anti-racism.”

In defense of their decision, a Spokesperson for the Denver School district released this statement in an interview with the local Fox affiliate.
“Our school leaders met with some of the black families whose children attend our school to determine ways for these families to feel more included in our school community,” the spokesperson told the outlet. “Some of these families shared with us that, since the only time many of them see one another is at drop-off and pick-up times, we host some events where black families can meet one another, connect with one another, and share their experiences about the school with one another. We are honoring their request. All families are welcome to attend all of our events, and families from a variety of backgrounds have done so.”
The statement continued that the District “remains committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of inclusion and belonging, where our students, families and team members are safe and welcomed.”
