From the Dallas Morning News:

Houston, Franklin and Jefferson are among Dallas ISD campuses that ‘require further research’ for possible name changes

Corbett Smith, Staff Writer

Dallas ISD [Independent School District] is researching the histories of Ben Franklin, Sam Houston, Thomas Jefferson and 17 other historical figures, looking into whether their connections with slavery or the Confederacy should prompt reconsideration of their names on DISD campuses.

Last Thursday, DISD administration recommended changing the names of four schools honoring Confederate generals: Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston and William L. Cabell elementary schools. During that discussion, it was mentioned that there is a much broader list of at least 21 names that bear further investigation, if trustees were compelled to do so.

“This was just a very quick review of looking at the biographies of the individuals,” DISD chief of school leadership Stephanie Elizalde told trustees on Sept. 14. “And if there was any association with Confederacy — not making a judgment for or against — just if we saw Confederacy named in it, we then highlighted it. We are now in the process of doing a second [look].”

The Dallas Morning News has obtained a copy of that list, which includes Texas revolutionaries and founders such as Sam Houston, James Bowie and William Travis, U.S. presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and Dallas pioneers James Gaston and William Brown Miller.

Elizalde acknowledged to trustees the difficulty in drawing a line on where to proceed.

Wait until they find out that Franklin’s most epochal contribution to economic and biological theory, his 1754 essay Observations Concerning the Increase in Mankind, was an anti-immigration pamphlet.

Commenter anonymous observes:

Inshallah, I would be damn proud to be quarterback for the Ahmed Mohamed H.S. (formerly Douglas MacArthur H.S.) “Fightin’ Clockboys” in Irving, Texas.

  1. Ben Franklin’s behavior was, frankly unsound, and he does not deserve a place among our SAFE schools. It’s not the womanizing, anti-immigration, founding-of-countries stuff that’s the worry. It’s the going out to fly a kite in a thunderstorm episode. This is the current era – we shelter in place, and we, never, never play with electricity, kids, you might learn something. 110 V A/C has tought me a lesson about 4 times, and I have a pair of melted pliers to prove it.

    Even more to the point, Achmed, electricity's racist.

    It constantly kills Black and Brown Bodies, while white devils like Franklin, Edison, Tesla, etc., mess with it and don't die!

    Just LOOK at the racism on display here!

    https://www.thoughtco.com/history-of-electricity-1989860

    Also, most professional electricians in the US are white guys.

    Also, the reason it doesn't kill white guys is they have some sort of witchcraft. Time to start eating their organs to get some of it.

    I probably shouldn't joke about this. I hate giving T. Genius Coates Samizdat Right jokes that he takes seriously and translates into long screeds for the slightly more dim-witted.

    There are many Texans that appreciate, value, and honor their state’s and their ancestor’s courageous heritage. The halfwits that will rename those schools will have earned the enmity they deserve.

    Apparently this bears repeating, but it was the sense of 'fair play' which led the Anglo-Americans in this country to permit a certain "irate, tireless minority" to first, gain a firm foothold and then, a leg hold and through what Steve has termed "ethnic nepotism" a chokehold upon the upper reaches of finance, industry, and most particularly the mass media which facilitates all else.

    The country wasn't given away--it was hijacked--and it was indeed the moral goodness of its founding stock and their descendents which proved their disadvantage when it came to invaders without scruples, who were playing for keeps.

    This is what history would one day show about what happened to America--except for that little nuisance fact, that history is written by the victors.

It will be interesting to see what sort of crappy name they come up with for that school. I’m going to guess, since is it a school for the deaf too, that it will be called Helen Keller Elementary.

    TJ is a high school that no white parent would send their kid to if it was at all possible to avoid.

    Franklin is a middle school in one of that last high school clusters (Hillcrest) that whites use.

    Mayor Rawlings’ son went to Jesuit. (As did my son, but I’m not trying to force your child into a shitty environment.) His daughter went to Episcopal. This behavior is all too typical of politicians.

    I have to confess to attending an event early on that was Rawlings for Mayor. Several of my friends used to work with him advertising. It was naive of me to think he would be some sort of centrist Republican.

Even Trump, with his mushy civic-nationalism, appears convinced the Dacaca Mestizos are shiny-new All American boys and girls. He still pictures Annette Funicello when everyone else sees Miley Cyrus.

    though I’m puzzled how Franklin showed up. Did he ever own slaves?
     
    At one point in his life, he owned two slaves:

    Franklin owned two slaves, George and King, who worked as personal servants, and his newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, commonly ran notices involving the sale or purchase of slaves and contracts for indentured laborers.
     
    http://www.pbs.org/benfranklin/l3_citizen_abolitionist.html

    So, his involvement with slavery was pretty marginal. And, towards the end of his life, he became an abolitionist:

    After Franklin returned from France in 1785, he joined and eventually became president of an abolitionist group founded a decade earlier by the Pennsylvania Quakers. The group was called the Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery and the Relief of Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondage. Franklin was convinced that not only the slave trade, but slavery itself should be eliminated. He eventually freed his own two slaves.

    Franklin recognized that freed slaves could not fend for themselves without help, so he advanced the idea that slaves needed to be educated in order to become contributing members of a free society. In his position of president of the abolitionist society, Franklin wrote and published an "Address to the Public," in which he addressed the education of former slaves. The plan was to "instruct, to advise, to qualify those who have been restored to freedom, for the exercise and enjoyment of civil liberty; to promote in them habits of industry, to furnish them with employment suited to their age, sex, talents, and other circumstances. . . which we conceive will essentially promote the public good, and the happiness of these hitherto much neglected fellow-creatures."

    "Apparently this bears repeating, but it was the sense of ‘fair play’ which led the Anglo-Americans..."

    No, your statement bears refutation. Our nation was founded by colonists sent forth by a myriad of European nations, each of whom had certain levels of distrust against one another. The only "fair play" came in the form of their governments turning on the population spicket to alleviate political, economic, and social tension, as well as to siphon raw materials from virgin lands by way of greasing the skids with African slaves, with general disregard to native peoples. The Thirteen Colonies thrived, created a unique national identity as well as regional identities, and eventually broke away from the mother country.

    After 1790, immigrants came to our land, as designated by Congressional rule, or lack of enforcement thereof. The "irate, tireless minorities" at various points in our history consisted of the Irish/Germans, then the Italians/Poles/Russians, then the Japanese/Chinese, then the Mexicans, then the Vietnamese, all of whom were deemed unassimilable and undesirable by nativists and, ironically, the groups who previously had been labeled as unassimilable and undesirable.

    Interesting how these groups in various capacities gained this "chokehold upon the upper reaches of finance, industry, and most particularly the mass media".

    "The country wasn’t given away–it was hijacked–and it was indeed the moral goodness of its founding stock and their descendents which proved their disadvantage when it came to invaders without scruples, who were playing for keeps."

    Wow, just wow. You done Archie Bunker proud with your revisionist history lesson.

    Eventually, through the sheer persistence of "social justice" totalitarianism, no doubt with the assistance of Google and Facebook, we will all accept that the United States has no legitimate history, no history deserving of reference or acknowledgment, before the birth of Martin Luther King Jr.

    In 2016, Louisiana State Rep. Barbara Norton (D) argued that black school children should not be required to recite words that were written during a time in history when slavery was prevalent.

    “In 1776, Dr. King was not even born. African-Americans were in slavery, so since they were in slavery, the Declaration of Independence say we are ‘all created equal,’ we were not created equal because in 1776, July the 4th, I nor you nor any of us were born, nor was Dr. King born, so we were in slavery, and to have our children repeat again and again documents that were not even validated, I don’t think that that’s fair.”
  35. Make a snarkfest of it but it’s not stopping when you have the establishment and both parties tacitly supporting it. Eventually it will go nationwide – Texas is just a test case. If they can pull if off there, they can pull it off anywhere.

    Rebranding of high schools, making statues of undesirable vanish in the night is going to be part of our landscape from now on.

    What I’m waiting for is them going after on-line sources and going old school commie on them. Redact, retconn dead white male histories and in some cases simply erase it. I can see public schools recommending on certain texts for history class reports, etc. School libraries will probably start removing certain books not approved of by the school authorities.

    Common Core will do the rest, wrecking those young minds, rendering them into docile cube cattle.

    Conservative whites , will have to make a decision sometime in the near future. Either continue to let these people stomp our life, culture and history into oblivion or we stop it by stopping them. Because we can’t appeal to authorities because the people doing this to us now are the authorities.

    Dallas (and Texas) exists because of, and is sustained by, the wealth creation activity of Whites — while some (misguided, political/venal) Whites may be involved in this kind of push, it’s largely driven by the acquisition of political power by non-whites, and as such is a kind of crass usurpation: the ultimate consequence of a sort of slow ‘Camp of the Saints’-like demographic conquest — ‘Democracy is the noose that will be used to hang the white man’.

African-Americans were in slavery, so since they were in slavery, the Declaration of Independence say we are ‘all created equal,’ we were not created equal because in 1776, July the 4th, I nor you nor any of us were born, nor was Dr. King born, so we were in slavery, and to have our children repeat again and again documents that were not even validated, I don’t think that that’s fair.”

    So I guess Washingtons DC and state are next. We know he owned slaves, though I'm puzzled how Franklin showed up. Did he ever own slaves?

    though I’m puzzled how Franklin showed up. Did he ever own slaves?

    At one point in his life, he owned two slaves:

    Franklin owned two slaves, George and King, who worked as personal servants, and his newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, commonly ran notices involving the sale or purchase of slaves and contracts for indentured laborers.

    http://www.pbs.org/benfranklin/l3_citizen_abolitionist.html

    So, his involvement with slavery was pretty marginal. And, towards the end of his life, he became an abolitionist:

    After Franklin returned from France in 1785, he joined and eventually became president of an abolitionist group founded a decade earlier by the Pennsylvania Quakers. The group was called the Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery and the Relief of Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondage. Franklin was convinced that not only the slave trade, but slavery itself should be eliminated. He eventually freed his own two slaves.

    Franklin recognized that freed slaves could not fend for themselves without help, so he advanced the idea that slaves needed to be educated in order to become contributing members of a free society. In his position of president of the abolitionist society, Franklin wrote and published an “Address to the Public,” in which he addressed the education of former slaves. The plan was to “instruct, to advise, to qualify those who have been restored to freedom, for the exercise and enjoyment of civil liberty; to promote in them habits of industry, to furnish them with employment suited to their age, sex, talents, and other circumstances. . . which we conceive will essentially promote the public good, and the happiness of these hitherto much neglected fellow-creatures.”

    Alas, that later-in-life stuff won't protect his name from the dreaded "Refs unpersons" label. Margaret Mitchell was secretly donating money to a black medical school--a remarkably practical form of assistance, since white doctors were known to use black patients as unwitting guinea pigs (Tuskegee experiment, Henrietta Lacks) or turn them away altogether (Bessie Smith). This fact has not saved Gone With the Wind from condemnation.

    Dallas County has the poorest residents...According to the five-year data (from 2008 to 2012), about 23 percent of Dallas County residents were foreign-born.

    Dallas (and Texas) exists because of, and is sustained by, the wealth creation activity of Whites -- while some (misguided, political/venal) Whites may be involved in this kind of push, it's largely driven by the acquisition of political power by non-whites, and as such is a kind of crass usurpation: the ultimate consequence of a sort of slow 'Camp of the Saints'-like demographic conquest -- 'Democracy is the noose that will be used to hang the white man'.

    Apparently this bears repeating, but it was the sense of 'fair play' which led the Anglo-Americans in this country to permit a certain "irate, tireless minority" to first, gain a firm foothold and then, a leg hold and through what Steve has termed "ethnic nepotism" a chokehold upon the upper reaches of finance, industry, and most particularly the mass media which facilitates all else.

    The country wasn't given away--it was hijacked--and it was indeed the moral goodness of its founding stock and their descendents which proved their disadvantage when it came to invaders without scruples, who were playing for keeps.

    This is what history would one day show about what happened to America--except for that little nuisance fact, that history is written by the victors.

You have to assume they will be teaching that white settlers stole it, no not the Spanish white settlers but the later ones, the bad American ones, the Sam Houston ones, and anyway it belonged to the Aztecs, who were never anywhere near it and if not the Aztecs, then the tribes of northern Mexico, who were never anywhere near it either.

    Stonewall Jackson is one of those schools that has moms with MBA's running things. The place is an outlier in Dallas test scores. It will be interesting to see what sort of crappy name they come up with for that school. I'm going to guess, since is it a school for the deaf too, that it will be called Helen Keller Elementary.

    TJ is a high school that no white parent would send their kid to if it was at all possible to avoid.

    Franklin is a middle school in one of that last high school clusters (Hillcrest) that whites use.

    Mayor Rawlings' son went to Jesuit. (As did my son, but I'm not trying to force your child into a shitty environment.) His daughter went to Episcopal. This behavior is all too typical of politicians.

    I have to confess to attending an event early on that was Rawlings for Mayor. Several of my friends used to work with him advertising. It was naive of me to think he would be some sort of centrist Republican.

    @15 Mike: ” It was naive of me to think he would be some sort of centrist Republican.”

    It is naive to believe any elected official of any political party would be anything other than explicitly in favor of everything non-White, non-Christian, and non-historical American. Even Trump, with his mushy civic-nationalism, appears convinced the Dacaca Mestizos are shiny-new All American boys and girls. He still pictures Annette Funicello when everyone else sees Miley Cyrus.

  64. I still have absolutely no idea, no plausible or even potential theory, that explains why black people in the current era believe they have any connection to black people during slavery. They have no cultural memories passed down to them about being slaves, no heritage, no shared traditions about it. Perhaps there are a few communities down in the South where this does happen, but they would be a far cry from the communities that do most of the complaining about it.

    This is fairly disturbing for me to ponder, speaking honestly. A minority group that has lost any sense of cultural heritage or cohesiveness in addition to suffering low levels of socioeconomic standing in the face of declining persecution? Quite frankly, that’s unheard of. How does this happen? Should there have been slow integration rather than rapid desegregation back in the 50’s-60’s? This seriously makes me question if there’s a “cultural IQ” gap among black people, counter-intuitive as that may sound. Slavery—as horrible as it was—virtually forms the basis of black culture, the “shared experience” (or memory thereof) that glues them together as a social group. Despite this, I’ve never met a black person who could tell me that heritage has informed their identity or worldview or even if it’s affected them personally and directly in any manner.

    I'm not sure I'd agree that black Americans have no cultural linkage to slavery. I tend to think most of their issues stem from a slave mentality. Most black Americans are obsessed with white opinion and being included in "white spaces".

    Given that Kennedy - were he alive today - would probably be deemed a white supremacist, and that Oswald was a supporter of the great revolutionary and humanitarian Fidel Castro (that's what Hollywood people are always telling me anyway), I don't see why Dallas shouldn't have at least a Lee Harvey Oswald Middle School. It could be a feeder for William Ayers High.

    Oswald would fit right in with today’s left.

  69. With the current Confederate leprosy scare, you’d think there would be meaningful debate among historians about the issue, but if you take the American Hysterical Association as an indication, historians seem generally to be on board with removing the statues. Most seem to be “critical theorists” who use history primarily as a vehicle for proselytizing their world view. Two of their members, along with leftist revisionist Eric Foner, advocated in the Times for a Reconstruction Memorial.

    though I’m puzzled how Franklin showed up. Did he ever own slaves?
     
    At one point in his life, he owned two slaves:

    Franklin owned two slaves, George and King, who worked as personal servants, and his newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, commonly ran notices involving the sale or purchase of slaves and contracts for indentured laborers.
     
    http://www.pbs.org/benfranklin/l3_citizen_abolitionist.html

    So, his involvement with slavery was pretty marginal. And, towards the end of his life, he became an abolitionist:

    After Franklin returned from France in 1785, he joined and eventually became president of an abolitionist group founded a decade earlier by the Pennsylvania Quakers. The group was called the Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery and the Relief of Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondage. Franklin was convinced that not only the slave trade, but slavery itself should be eliminated. He eventually freed his own two slaves.

    Franklin recognized that freed slaves could not fend for themselves without help, so he advanced the idea that slaves needed to be educated in order to become contributing members of a free society. In his position of president of the abolitionist society, Franklin wrote and published an "Address to the Public," in which he addressed the education of former slaves. The plan was to "instruct, to advise, to qualify those who have been restored to freedom, for the exercise and enjoyment of civil liberty; to promote in them habits of industry, to furnish them with employment suited to their age, sex, talents, and other circumstances. . . which we conceive will essentially promote the public good, and the happiness of these hitherto much neglected fellow-creatures."
     
    http://www.pbs.org/benfranklin/l3_citizen_abolitionist.html

    Alas, that later-in-life stuff won’t protect his name from the dreaded “Refs unpersons” label. Margaret Mitchell was secretly donating money to a black medical school–a remarkably practical form of assistance, since white doctors were known to use black patients as unwitting guinea pigs (Tuskegee experiment, Henrietta Lacks) or turn them away altogether (Bessie Smith). This fact has not saved Gone With the Wind from condemnation.

  71. @al-Gharaniq
    I still have absolutely no idea, no plausible or even potential theory, that explains why black people in the current era believe they have any connection to black people during slavery. They have no cultural memories passed down to them about being slaves, no heritage, no shared traditions about it. Perhaps there are a few communities down in the South where this does happen, but they would be a far cry from the communities that do most of the complaining about it.

    This is fairly disturbing for me to ponder, speaking honestly. A minority group that has lost any sense of cultural heritage or cohesiveness in addition to suffering low levels of socioeconomic standing in the face of declining persecution? Quite frankly, that's unheard of. How does this happen? Should there have been slow integration rather than rapid desegregation back in the 50's-60's? This seriously makes me question if there's a "cultural IQ" gap among black people, counter-intuitive as that may sound. Slavery—as horrible as it was—virtually forms the basis of black culture, the "shared experience" (or memory thereof) that glues them together as a social group. Despite this, I've never met a black person who could tell me that heritage has informed their identity or worldview or even if it's affected them personally and directly in any manner.

    I’m not sure I’d agree that black Americans have no cultural linkage to slavery. I tend to think most of their issues stem from a slave mentality. Most black Americans are obsessed with white opinion and being included in “white spaces”.

    I do agree they don’t have much of a culture though which makes them susceptible to Hollywood, Madison Ave and SJWism.

    Ben Franklin's behavior was, frankly unsound, and he does not deserve a place among our SAFE schools. It's not the womanizing, anti-immigration, founding-of-countries stuff that's the worry.

This is the current era - we shelter in place, and we, never, never play with electricity, kids, you might learn something. 110 V A/C has tought me a lesson about 4 times, and I have a pair of melted pliers to prove it.

    Even more to the point, Achmed, electricity’s racist.

    It constantly kills Black and Brown Bodies, while white devils like Franklin, Edison, Tesla, etc., mess with it and don’t die!

    Just LOOK at the racism on display here!

    https://www.thoughtco.com/history-of-electricity-1989860

    Also, most professional electricians in the US are white guys.

    Also, the reason it doesn’t kill white guys is they have some sort of witchcraft. Time to start eating their organs to get some of it.

    I probably shouldn’t joke about this. I hate giving T. Genius Coates Samizdat Right jokes that he takes seriously and translates into long screeds for the slightly more dim-witted.

    Apparently this bears repeating, but it was the sense of 'fair play' which led the Anglo-Americans in this country to permit a certain "irate, tireless minority" to first, gain a firm foothold and then, a leg hold and through what Steve has termed "ethnic nepotism" a chokehold upon the upper reaches of finance, industry, and most particularly the mass media which facilitates all else.

    The country wasn't given away--it was hijacked--and it was indeed the moral goodness of its founding stock and their descendents which proved their disadvantage when it came to invaders without scruples, who were playing for keeps.

    This is what history would one day show about what happened to America--except for that little nuisance fact, that history is written by the victors.

    “Apparently this bears repeating, but it was the sense of ‘fair play’ which led the Anglo-Americans…”

    No, your statement bears refutation. Our nation was founded by colonists sent forth by a myriad of European nations, each of whom had certain levels of distrust against one another. The only “fair play” came in the form of their governments turning on the population spicket to alleviate political, economic, and social tension, as well as to siphon raw materials from virgin lands by way of greasing the skids with African slaves, with general disregard to native peoples. The Thirteen Colonies thrived, created a unique national identity as well as regional identities, and eventually broke away from the mother country.

    After 1790, immigrants came to our land, as designated by Congressional rule, or lack of enforcement thereof. The “irate, tireless minorities” at various points in our history consisted of the Irish/Germans, then the Italians/Poles/Russians, then the Japanese/Chinese, then the Mexicans, then the Vietnamese, all of whom were deemed unassimilable and undesirable by nativists and, ironically, the groups who previously had been labeled as unassimilable and undesirable.

    Interesting how these groups in various capacities gained this “chokehold upon the upper reaches of finance, industry, and most particularly the mass media”.

    “The country wasn’t given away–it was hijacked–and it was indeed the moral goodness of its founding stock and their descendents which proved their disadvantage when it came to invaders without scruples, who were playing for keeps.”

    And ignorant of physics.

    21st century Communists seem to have forgotten their forefathers’ praxis, which was so effective in deftly obliterating tens of millions in the 20th century:

    A headshot is more effective from the back, since occipital skull density is quite robust…and might not result in death anyway (the bullet trajectory could pass right through the brain, as arrayed, through the upper part of the parietal).

    Also with this shot so aligned, the bone fragments that rebound from the occipital plate would very likely blind the guy on the left.

    So really, this is just racialist snuff porn by Michael D’Antuono and those who love his stuff.

    They just love Love LOVE meditating on tormented Black Bodies. One might even suspect, and suggest, that they killed and resurrected Jesus out of their lust for (and profiting from) depicting black victimization.

    Because Americans were invited to live in the region in the first place. As early as the 1790's, Spain enabled Americans to settle in Louisiana Territory and in Texas.
