Sacramento Public Schools Promoting ‘Black Lives Matter’ on School Billboards

Do the administrators who authorized the billboards know anything about Black Lives Matter?

By Katy Grimes, July 17, 2020 8:20 am

Two public schools in the City of Sacramento are showing their virtue loud and proud, by posting BLACK LIVES MATTER on their billboards. Crocker/Riverside Elementary School, and Sacramento City College, both in the downtown neighborhood of Land Park, have posted the message, and both are closed to students at the moment.

While Crocker/Riverside Elementary School doesn’t have anything on its website about BLM, Sacramento City College is promoting “A Message of Solidarity and Action” by
Sacramento City College President Michael Gutierrez:

“Words cannot explain the pain our Black colleagues and students feel due to the racist atrocities happening nationwide. The deaths, the murders, the weaponization of race by calling the police on Black people, the wearing of white supremacist paraphernalia – it must stop.

It is heartbreaking to see our friends, loved ones, colleagues and community continue to suffer and grieve. As a parent, my heart hurts for parents of Black men and boys. As a human, my heart hurts for all Black people in the US.  

Together we stand in solidarity with our Black community – our students, faculty, staff, and administrators – to fight against systemic inequity, injustice, and racism. It is our responsibility to restore faith and hope to our campus.

To the members of SCC’s Black community, we see you, we hear you, and we will take action to deconstruct structural racism so that our Black students can succeed at Sacramento City College.”

Is Sacramento City College President Gutierrez implying that black students are unable to earn Associate of Arts Degrees from his college? Read the entire message here.

In June, California Globe reported that the Sacramento City Unified School District sent an email out immediately following the George Floyd incident claiming “racism that is prevalent throughout this country, including in Sacramento.” This message went to all SCUSD employees, parents of SCUSD students, and community members, and infuriated parents and teachers alike.

Why is this necessary And Who is BLM??

The City College electronic billboard is currently covered on both sides by BLM banners.

Do the administrators who authorized the billboards know anything about Black Lives Matter, or is this just virtue signaling? Can they be that naive, or are they knowingly supportive of BLM?

A video from 2015 is being shared all over social media of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who describes herself as a “queer,” artist, author, organizer and college professor who founded the organization with another lesbian feminist, acknowledging that the group is led by”trained organizers,” and “trained Marxists,” and “super versed on ideological theories.”

The BLM  website also outlines that it seeks to “dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk,” as well as to “foster a queer‐affirming network” and “build a space” that is “free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.”

But BLM fails to acknowledge the 104 people shot in Chicago over a recent weekend, leaving 14 dead. Don’t all black lives matter? Why are they silent about black on black violent crime in inner cities like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New York City, Los Angeles, and other large US cities? Do Democrats who embrace BLM not care?

Black Lives Matter is about reviving the Black Liberation Movement and subsequent theology. Garza sees Black Lives Matter as a vehicle for the promotion of “Black queer and trans folks.”

Black Lives Matter also has on its website a section for defunding the police. “We know that police don’t keep us safe…” the message says. So while public schools are signaling their support for the Black Lives Matter organization, others warn that BLM is a domestic terrorist movement.

“The co-founder of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, Patrisse Cullors, was the protégé of a communist-supporting domestic terrorist for over a decade, spending years training in political organizing and absorbing the radical Marxist-Leninist ideology which shaped her worldview,” Breitbart recently reported.

American Thinker contributor Don Fsher, Jr. calls BLM “Domestic Terrorists.” Fisher explains: “The reality is that Black Lives Matter (BLM) intimidates, terrorizes, and uses violence to achieve its goals.” As we all saw with the riots, arson and looting following the George Floyd death, “the anarchists shut down freeways, destroyed property, and looted stores.  Rocks, bottles, and other projectiles were thrown at police who attempted to break up the mayhem, and “Black Lives Matter” was spray-painted by the mobs on buildings, sidewalks, signs, and even monuments,” Fisher said.

It is curious why any public school administrator would promote Black Lives Matter. And since no one is answering the phones at either Crocker/Riverside Elementary School or Sacramento City College, California Globe couldn’t even ask.

Here is the video of Sacramento City College’s “messages of solidarity and action for our campus and community.”

  1. Excellent article Katy and to the point. One thing missing on the BLM website is their advocacy for the killing of police. Many of their marches included the chant: “what do we want? dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” They should be declared a domestic terrorist organization just like the white supremacist group Antifa. Sadly I can see these BLM thugs being invited to speak at these schools.

  2. BLM advocates the elimination of all standards of civilized behavior including the nuclear family. They seem to think that if you destroy the standards you will destroy the consequences of bad behaviors.

  3. By prominently posting “Black Lives Matter” on a large announcement board in front of a public school the school administration is sending this message: “Beware to all who cross our threshold — whether you are a student, an employee, or a parent — you had better be in lockstep with BLM and all that it stands for or there will be trouble.” Because BLM has called for the killing of police officers and other violent forms of “protest,” which I think serves to categorize them as a terrorist organization, it could be argued that such a school-sponsored billboard is tantamount to a terrorist threat and thus subject to prosecution.

    If one thinks that is going too far, then it can certainly be interpreted as a form of intimidation, meant for those who enter the school, of the type that has been cited by BLM themselves.

    At the very least it is NOT a message of welcome for the students, teachers, and parents who may disagree with or object to the organization’s philosophy and tactics, and thus is not appropriate to post anywhere on the grounds of a taxpayer-funded institution.

  4. They also advocate by re instituting the use of affirmative action, an apparent plan to “dumb down” whites to make them less competitive in the workforce.

  5. I’m starting to wonder if this is why the teachers do not want to return to the classroom since they’ll be at the mercy of the blm racists every second. The classrooms will be uncontrollable zoos and the playground a mini prison yard run by these thugs, who by the way cannot be stopped, punished or expelled due to the idiotic laws already passed by the evil and moronic leaders of this state. Maybe that was the plan all along and I would not be surprised at was. They let out and are continuing to let out prisoners ( because they care for their safety – – yeah right ) to terrorize the citizens of California since their lifestyle and career choice is crime and that’s not going to change, but in addition allow their hell-spawn kids to start their careers early as public school thugs backed by the heartless & racist blm.

    This has no limit to the disaster it can cause. The only limitation is the mind of an evil person. This reminds me of somebody playing with a ouija board followed by a legion of demons pouring into their life, but with these nuts the ouija board is the front door to the school and the demons are blm. I wonder what these fools are going to do when they face the reality of this every day and not something they can ignore as it gets worse and worse.

    One thing to bring up that has possibly slipped through the stellar intelligence of these fools is the school is responsible for every child that walks in that door and for the entire time school is in session. If a kid runs out and robs a bank, the school can be held responsible. If kids, or even adults, start getting beat up, threatened, bullying or even worse they wouldn’t be able to keep up with the lawsuits.

    This michael gutierrez is not even hiding his bigotry the racist pig. White supremacist Racist paraphernalia he says? Can you give us an example or do you have a never ending list you continue to add to as your hate and possible jealously for Caucasians grows. What a racist facist pig this guy is, and there is nothing good to come out of him doing this, but it might just destroy Sac City college for good and turn it into blm’s racist Nor Cal HQ. This stupid fool needs to understand the biggest problem for the black community IS THE BLACK COMMUNITY. Stop blaming everyone else you tool.

    If parents see a blm sign in front of their kids school hit the gas instead of the brakes and never look back.

  6. Just remove the letter “V” from the sign on the school. I’m surprised no one has done that yet.

    1. Love it! — but don’t get caught or they’ll throw the book (and who knows what else) at you.

  7. In other news the Smithsonian has declared that rational thinking and science are “white” and “oppressive” which means that BLM schools will not be teaching anything rational at all.

  8. Public schools should not be promoting a controversial and often violent organization run by racist Marxists like BLM! This is outrageous!

  9. The high schools and colleges here in Calizuela push the Marxist agenda and view of history; why shouldn’t the elementary and middle schools? :/
