In a speech to the FBI, Senator Kamala Harris begged for teachers to not be allowed to have guns, because if they have guns they will shoot black students for misbehaving. Just when we thought Democrats couldn’t get any stupider.
“I also have a concern when we talk about this, the impact of having armed teachers as it relates to African-Americans, Hispanic students. And here’s why I say that. There’s an overwhelming body of evidence that shows that harsh disciplinary protocols disproportionately impact children of color,” she said.
“We know that in the studies that talk about what the rates are in terms of suspensions and expulsions from school. The FBI has done an extraordinary job, I think, of recognizing implicit bias among all professions including law enforcement and I would suggest it applies to all professions,” she said.
“Do you have any concerns about a policy that would result in arming teachers and the concern that we should make sure that if something like that were to occur that there would be training around implicit bias?” Harris asked. This might shock Harris, but the guns would be for protection against school shootings, not shooting misbehaving students.
“We all carry implicit bias and it’s important that we — we are aware of it when we make decisions, especially exercise judgment that might result in harm or even death to another person,” she argued.
