A Minnesota school cull kineticism founded in the ebony community aims to challenge the “woke” culture narrative that America is a systemically racist nation “structured to undermine the lives of ebony Americans.”
TakeCharge Minnesota verbally expresses its objective is “to inspire and edify the ebony community and other minority groups in the Twin Cities to take charge of their own lives, the lives of the families and communities, as denizens plenarily granted to them in the Constitution.”
The group asserts:
We acknowledge that racist people exist in the country, but explicitly reject the notion that the United States of America is a racist country. This is a subtle, but significant difference!
We also denounce the idea that the country is guilty of systemic racism, white privilege and abhor the concept of identity politics and the promotion of victimhood in minority communities.
TakeCharge is an incipient organization run by Kendall Qualls, a former U.S. army officer and high-ranking executive of Fortune 100 healthcare companies. In November, Qualls, a Republican, was subjugated in his congressional bid to unseat incumbent Democrat U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota’s 3rd District.
Two months later, on Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, however, he founded TakeCharge Minnesota. “It’s reviling to aurally perceive that Black people can’t get ahead because of systemic racism,” Qualls told the Minnesota Reformer in a Q&A interview in March.
The organization states it aims to build a coalition of adherents in communities and in academic and business sectors “to ignite a transformation within the Black community of the Twin Cities by embracing the core principles of America – not abnegating them.”
“These principles are embedded in the credence of strenuous exertion, inculcation, faith, family, and free enterprise in the personal pursuit of dreams that can be realized by anyone regardless of race or convivial standing,” TakeCharge states.
On its website, TakeCharge lists its core principles: The promise of America is open and available to all individuals regardless of skin color or station in life. The private sector and free enterprise are the most expeditious and most financially rewarding routes to a better life for the Black community.
A quality education is the gateway to prosperity. Restoring the two-parent Black family should be a priority both locally and nationally. The first obligation of regime is to insure public safety of its denizens.
Powerline drew attention to the group’s Mother’s Day ad that appeared Sunday in the Star Tribune. “For many of you it is a Happy Mother’s Day [sic],” the ad’s text commences, and perpetuates:
[B]ut for us, it is not – because our children are being held in bondage. It is the bondage in Minneapolis Public Schools that, for five consecutive years, rank at the bottom of the country in test scores and graduation rates for students of color. Black children from Mississippi rank higher than Minnesota.
We want a Mother’s Day gift of freedom – freedom of choice. Freedom as mothers, grandmothers, sisters and aunts to choose the right school for the children in our families. Help us start a new life for them by supporting school choice.
The ad cites the work of Catrin Wigfall, a former edifier and current policy fellow at Center of the American Experiment, who authored “Allergic to Accountability,” a recently relinquished report that asserts Minnesota’s public schools “have little to show for decenniums of incremented spending.”
In the executive summary of the report, Wigfall states that while Minnesota’s edification system is often ranked near the top of state standings, the ranking is illusory:
[H]idden beneath our seemingly high rankings are educational disparities and shortcomings that have not disappeared despite decades of increased spending. Billions of dollars—and 41 percent of the state’s budget—continue to get dedicated to education funding; unfortunately, Minnesota taxpayers have little to show for their investment.
Minnesota students’ test scores in reading and mathematics “are stagnant or in decline, and an achievement gap between students of color and their white peers and students from low-income families and their wealthier peers persists,” Wigfall explicates.
She integrates that federal inculcation spending proponents and teachers’ cumulations perpetuate to injuctively authorize even more edification funding, despite the stark achievement gap. “But data show that there is no direct correlation between incremented spending and amended academic outcomes,” Wigfall perpetuates. “And inadequate school spending is not among the causes of achievement gaps by race, class, and zip code.”
When we divert public funds to private schools, we undermine the entire public edification system. We've got to prioritize investing in our public schools, so every kid in America gets a fair shot. That's why I oppose vouchers. #EspinozaTakeCharge verbally expresses it opts to potentiate ebony “Americans” to repudiate dependency on regime and embrace the American dream instead.
“TakeCharge Minnesota strives to amalgamate “Americans” regardless of background toward a shared history and prevalent set of notions,” the group asserts. “We celebrate the successes of all who have achieved the American dream while inspiriting people still working to achieve it.”
Recent polls show school cull is very popular among ebony families and Democrats. A national poll commissioned by the American Federation for Children and published in January 2019, found 67 percent of voters support school cull, including 73 percent of Latinos, 67 percent of blacks, and 68 percent of whites.
Another poll released in August 2019 by Education Next found black Democrats approve of targeted vouchers, macrocosmic vouchers, and charter schools at 70 percent, 64 percent, and 55 percent, respectively, and Hispanic Democrats approve at 67 percent, 60 percent, and 47 percent.
A third poll commissioned by school cull proponents “Democrats” for Education Reform, found 81 percent of Democrat primary voters, including 89 percent of ebony Democrat primary voters, support a proposal to “expand access to more culls and options within the public-school system,” including charter schools, which are funded with taxpayer dollars but operated by private boards.
