Elementary school in Delaware County gives each student controversial shirt

Should schools push political opinions to children from the age of 5?

This topic has stirred controversy nationwide. So much so, that colleges and universities have even banned professors from pushing a political statement to students.

Now, a local elementary school in Delaware County Pennsylvania has parents furious after each student was given a t-shirt comparing 1968 to today.

It is unclear if tax dollars were used to purchase the shirts given to students of the Rose Tree Media Elementary School, but parents will be taking it up at the next school board meeting.

It’s been 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered in Memphis at age 39.

What would Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. say today?

Civil rights leader and Representative John Lewis (D-GA), who joined Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1963 March on Washington, appeared on talk shows Sunday morning to say that King’s dream had been shaken and the leader “would not be pleased” with the current state of affairs in America today.

“If Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was still alive, he would be speaking the idea that we’re one people, we’re one family, we all live in the same house,” Lewis said Sunday, “not just American house, the world house, that we must learn to live together as brothers and sisters. If not, we will perish as fools.”

This is a developing story as we are waiting on a statement from the school district.

  1. If you are referring to the design at the top of your page,then I would be proud for my child to wear this shirt!

    • Proud to wear a shirt that says “ 50th anniversary of the poor people campaign” you might want to read that again

      • YES…I am well aware of what the “Poor People’s Campaign” was all about!
        Again, I would be PROUD to wear,or have my child to wear it!

        • Of course you be proud of that bigoted shirt. Where is the sign that says, “Stop the black violence on whites, Asians and Hispanics!”

  2. This shirt does not promote unity. It is clearly one – sided. I would much rather see multi cultural people working together with positive thoughts. I feel this shirt fosters the negativy.

  3. A shirt full of false narratives and complete lies. Rose Tree Media Schools should be ashamed of themselves. “Hands up don’t shoot”- false, made up lie!! By handing out these shirts they are declaring they are anti-police. We want the administration fired. Complete garbage t-shirts.

  4. It spans from 1968->2018, does anyone proof read these screenings? Continued effort to further drive a wedge between the masses. Racism must be a business model, because the push still to this day is real. Free housing, free health care, free education….my daughter had a dream too, to get a college education. For us though it is not that easy. So stop being a victim already, cause being a glutton is unbecoming.

    Protect and pray for the lives of our Law enforcement and their families. For they make it possible for all of us to do what we do.

  5. Black People have always murdered and victimized White people more and destroy our cities and kill our police, then play the race, victim card 24/7. All lies, this happens worldwide, and they top crime charts and live off White people. They murder Whites 14x more. When are we going to overcome their BS lies, crimes and destruction? MLK was a communist that was a sex Deviant, and plagiarized his speeches, and Rosa Parks was a communist that faked the bus lies. It was a set up months in advance. Lying snakes
