Michigan school district promotes Black Lives Matter, bail donations in ‘equity challenge’

A public school district in Michigan is pushing the idea that calling America a melting pot or the land of opportunity is a “microaggression” while urging others to join Black Lives Matter protests and bail out “people arrested for protesting against injustice.”

Farmington Public Schools, located near Detroit, launched a “21 Day Equity Challenge” last month to offer participants “the chance to deliberately focus on issues of equity on a daily basis” through a series of “learning and reflection activities.” The activities will remain available to members of the Farmington/Farmington Hills community, including school staff and parents, through the end of the year.
