Verenice Gutierrez is a racist and an embarrassment for Portland, Oregon. George Washington Carver was a scholar and hero who promoted the peanut and peanut butter for the betterment of all people.

Verenice Gutierrez is worthy of mockery and ridicule.  That Ms. Gutierrez is teaching our children is an example of why home schooling and private schools are so popular now a days.  Ms. Gutierrez is the 21st century version of a witch hunter, searching for raaaaacism.  Ms. Gutierrez is trying to dowse evidence of it from the dust from the air.

Update: Instapundit posted it again today!
Vererice Gutierrez:  Do not let this ignorant women teach your children!  
Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year.
“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” says Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, a diverse school of 500 students in Northeast Portland’s Cully neighborhood.
Excuse me?  I get Ms. Gutierrez' completely in artfully made point that a student from some other immigrant culture may have cultural challenges to learning when coming to the United States--but I also reject it.  That is not racism.  That is called assimilation.  And culture after culture (including millions of Hispanics and dare I guess even some Somalis) have navigated and benefited from that challenge.  It is important (for their own economic wellbeing) that immigrants assimilate.  But cultural assimilation can go both ways:  many born in Portland and the rest of the United States readily adopt the culture and culinary traditions of immigrants.  I would suggest that interplay of immigrant cultural assimilation as it has been practiced in the United States is generally a positive thing.  E pluribus unum:  Ms. Gutierrez should look that phrase up.  

But what about that so called racist lunch known as the peanut butter sandwich?

George Washington Carver, self made botanist, scientist, humanitarian, and promoter of the peanut!
George Washington Carver was born into slavery in Missouri, but (despite real racism and personal health issues as a child) managed through hard work and self education to become a famed botanist and scientist.   Carver, as a professor at Tuskegee, promoted crop rotation.  Soils in the south had become depleted from years of mono-culture cotton growing.  Legumes, such as peanuts, fix nitrogen through their roots and help restore the fertility of depleted soils.  Farmers and share croppers, black and white, were resistant to growing soybeans, pecans, and peanuts because of lack of markets for those crops.  So Carver worked on finding economic uses for these crops to promote their growing.  

Peanuts are native to the Americas. Carver did not invent peanut butter, but he promoted it (along with many other products).  Peanut butter is a health food, with anti oxidants and vitamins.  Combined with bread it is a complete protein. The Aztecs and Incas used to enjoy peanut butter (why is Ms. Gutierrez denying Hispanic kids their culinary cultural heritage)!  We do not know if the Aztecs put chocolate and peanuts together, but we can guess they probably did enjoy that synergistic combination. That white racist lunch that Ms. Gutierrez casually denounced was actually a Native American treat, promoted by a self taught African American former slave to benefit the economic condition of poor black and white farmers and improve the environment.

So to combat racism, to remember George Washington Carver, and to mock Ms. Gutierrez' lunacy, enjoy a delicious and healthy peanut butter sandwich.  And if you are in Portland, you should consider adding some local Marionberry or native salmonberry jam to go along with it.

  1. My homeschooled kids now attend an early college program where they eat shitheads like this every day for lunch. My youngest had to participate in a debate on fracking. She was randomly assigned to the pro-fracking side. The teacher was beside herself when my kid was crushing the anti-fracking side, so she jumped into the debate. More fuel for the fire.

    Public teachers know next to nothing about their subject matter. They are indoctrinated with educational bullshit and methodology that doesn't work. My son pointed out a typo on the syllabus his English teacher handed to the class on the first day. You should hear his rant against tenure.

    We need to end the Department of Education and return the responsibility and accountability of education back to the local school districts.

    1. And don't forget the $$$$$ spent on education that produces even more foolish minded adults. The Chicago school system is a prime example. Yet, they will pour more money into it like pouring gasoline on a fire.

      And as you have proven, it's the methodology used to educate rather than the funding...

    5. Woah, woah. Hold Your fuckin' horses, Pal. Don't speak for an entire group of people. Please don't assume We're all the same. I've noticed that it's the white people who get treated like shit now a days but there's no need to be a dick about it. I love You.

    6. I take offense to the idea that public school teachers know next to nothing about their subject matter. In fact, I know numerous educators who are experts in their respective fields. You sir, might want to refrain from making blanket statements regarding the qualifications of educators due to one or two bad experiences.

    7. I would like to consider myself race neutral (being an orange cow). I just wish people would judge individuals by their character and behavior, rather than by the color of their skin (or any other physical trait or tendency).

  3. Not all public schools are bad. I went to a great public school with top notch programs. How many people went to a school that had a robotics class in the 90s? If I was home schooled then I would have never learned how to cast a ring or use auto CAD. My highschool had better classes than some colleges. Not many minorities though. All white faculty. Truth is white people don't spread race propaganda so stuff like this doesn't happen at public schools with a majority white student and teacher body. Then I went to a diverse college and race issues popped up everywhere. I saw a posting on the community bulletin board that said "Roommate wanted. Asians only." Why would something like that even be a thing? As an adult I have found that only about 15% of white people are what you could call racist and about 65% of pretty much every other race is racist though mostly racist towards white people.

    1. Not all public schools are bad, but most are mediocre and a lot of them are in fact bad (especially in communities with low parental involvement and interest in education).

      Where did you go to school? I am going to guess in a community that valued education and supported it (not just through financial support, but obviously money helps).

  4. Verenice Gutierrez is the ultimate trifecta of today's leftist -- fat, ugly, and stupid. And we wonder why our educational system is so broken. What diploma mill could possibly offer this woman a doctorate?

  5. Ms. Gutierrez is definitely not qualified for her position as principal. She harbors fanatical ideas that can only divide and not integrate the student body. Her calling the race card on peanut butter sandwiches is political correctness overkill. Thank God my grandchildren are homeschooled.
