Fostering Healthy Solutions
Stats on Bullying/Racism
We have a bullying problem, not a racism problem.
Two years ago, out of the 108 cases of harassment, 12 were racism-related. Last year, out of 159 cases of harassment, 24 were racism-related. Out of the total number of reported harassment cases, an average of 13 percent were racism-related. (2/23 TN Star)
"There are 40,000 students in WCS. There are 177 instructional days. If you do the math that means there are just over 7 million student days for incident opportunities. WCS is at an average of 18 incidents per year, which is 0.00026 percent. Congratulations WCS. You don’t have a macro-racism issue. You have isolated incidents." (2/23 TN Star)

Shan Foster's Work & Activism
He is currently part of their leadership team.
As a VP executive of YWCA, Shan foster believes the following:
"Racial profiling, bias, and discrimination are woven into every day practices and policies that systematically benefit white people and harm people of color."
"Due to racial and gender bias and through overly punitive school discipline policies, schools disproportionately push black youth out of school and into the criminal justice system."
In YWCA, his advocacy priorities are the following:
"Advocate for schools to provide comprehensive, medically accurate, non-shaming, and LGBTQ-inclusive sexuality education."
"Eliminate "institutional racism" in schools."
"Support initiatives to eliminate policies and practices within our educational systems that criminalize and disenfranchise girls of color and other marginalized communities, including immigrant communities."
"Work with educators to reform school discipline policies and practices that disproportionately target girls of color, girls with disabilities, and LGBTQ youth."
Video of Shan Foster
Shan Foster thinks the fans who celebrated him were actually oppressing him during his career as a successful professional NBA basketball player. He has been indoctrinated to see himself as a victim of oppression, and therefore must protest this "injustice." If he believes that celebration of skill and talent is oppressive, how can he and the woman who raised him be trusted with the task of creating WCS policies for our kids??
Shan Foster follows Ibram X. Kendi's ideology
Critical Race Theory's "real vice is that it teaches people to commit constitutional violations. It promotes widespread discrimination against people of white or Asian ancestry. The most frequently cited critical race theorist, Ibram X. Kendi, makes this explicit. As he puts it, “The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.”
The “discrimination” critical race theorists want to “remedy,” through still more discrimination, is any failure to meet a racial quota. As Mr. Kendi puts it, “When I see racial disparities, I see racism.” So if a nuclear weapons lab is full of Asians and whites, not blacks, he sees it as “racism,” even if everybody was legally hired based solely on their qualifications, not their race."
