Tennessee School Teacher Distributes Nation of Islam Racist Handouts For Third Grade Instruction…

You only need to read the following paragraph to spot the intents and motives of the third grade teacher for Harold McCormick Elementary School teacher in Elizabethton, Tennessee:

…”The teacher also told Sommer [parent] that her son was not supposed to take the Nation of Islam handout home. It was supposed to stay in the classroom. That bit of news caused her great alarm”….

What type of school handout could elicit the teacher’s aversion to sunlight?  This kind:

nation of islam handout

George Washington:  “enslaved 350 Africans.  His home state of Virginia was the prime breeder of black people for the domestic slave trade, and at one point the state exported at least 6,000 black people annually .. It’s biggest “cash crop”.

Thomas Jefferson:  “enslaved 200 Africans.  He wrote in 1812 that the Indians “…will relapse into barbarism and misery, lose members by war and wand, and we shall be obliged to drive them, with the beasts of the forest, into the Stormy mountains.””

Theodore Roosevelt:  “believed that blacks’ religion had no ethical bases and that the Africans were “ape like, naked savages, who dwell in the woods and prey on cultures not much wilder or lower than themselves.””

Abraham Lincoln:  “I have no purpose directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slaver in the States’ where it exists.  I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

Oh my.  Yes, one can see how a parent of a third grader might take exception to such classroom instructional materials provided by the Nation of Islam.

But the sunlight brought by a parent to media reporter Todd Starnes has created an even worse situation for the school, the administration thereof, and the school superintendent et al.

Because the initial reaction from the teacher, the principal and the school district was denial, denial, denial:

[…]  The Principal quickly had done a thorough investigation and found the following (all of which was given to Fox News, prior to his national news report): 1) the sheet in question was not a hand-out sheet distributed to the students; 2) the sheet had been generated from internet information (on Mount Rushmore for a classroom history lesson) for the purpose of providing background material for a teacher observation; 3) the location of the sheet was on a separate teacher table adjacent to the teacher’s desk; 4) the student (without permission) took the sheet from a “ton” of discarded teacher’s material on that table; then, the student took it home and gave it to the parent.

I was able late yesterday afternoon to obtain the sheet (via fax) and saw why it was, in fact, discarded by the teacher as material to utilize in her presentation.      Now, the thought that we as public educators would deliberately distribute such material is absolutely absurd! 

What was reported (which had been rebutted prior to the airing) was misleading and totally incorrect.  I can only think it was shown for its sensational effect.  Sadly, regardless of any follow-up report, our System has been defamed (possibly permanently). Should you need more information or if you have questions, please call or e-mail me.

Ed Alexander

However, the problem for School Superintendent Mr. Ed Alexander is more than one parent has now come forward to corroborate the original student’s claim:

A second parent has now come forward acknowledging their child received a Nation of Islam “handout” in a third grade class at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton, Tennessee – contradicting claims by the school district that the document was not distributed in the classroom.

[…] “I don’t want this little boy to be looked at as a liar,” the parent said. “As of right now that’s what all of these adults are making this boy out to be – and that makes me sick to my stomach.”

So what happened inside that third grade classroom at Harold McCormick Elementary School?

According to the parent, the children were separated into four groups. Each group was given two “sheets of paper.”

“The teacher held up each one and said, ‘These do not go home. These are just to use here,” the parent told me.  (read more)

      And how exactly are you enforcing this? Are you homeschooling?


      • Chip Bennett says:

        Currently, yes. We homeschool.

        But when and if our kids go to public schools, they will be under specific instruction to tell me any time a teacher tells them that something is not to go home, or that they’re not to tell their parents about something.

        And I will make myself a royal pain in the ass to any teacher, principal, or other school administrator or board member who tries to withhold from me any information about exactly what my children are being taught.

        There was a day where such involvement was considered normal. I remember my parents bringing home stacks of textbooks to review, when the school board was considering the purchase of new textbooks for upcoming school years. My parents never missed a parent-teacher conference, and were well known to all of our teachers, and to the principal.

        I don’t consider it at all difficult to stay involved and informed regarding my children’s education; it’s merely a matter of will and effort, and when it comes to my kids, I have both, in spades.

        Absolutely, Moishe. Black African tribes took captives in their wars, sold them to the Arab Muslim traders, who then sold the captives to Europeans. All these groups made plenty of money. There are still well-off African families who made their fortunes from slavery. But, of course, you don’t hear the NOI talking about that.

        And it’s a fact that Obola’s white ancestors were slaveowners.

          A bit off topic, or maybe just sideways….

          ‘(CNN, 06/12) –(….) now President Barack Obama may be related to the first documented African slave in pre-revolutionary America.

          Ancestry.com, which bills itself as the world’s largest online family history resource, on Monday released research and documents which it says shows the first indentured African American servant is an ancestor of President Obama’s mother.

          We have two of the most significant Africans in our country’s history being directly related to each other” Joseph Shumway, an Ancestry.com genealogist, told CNN’

          I guess it should have been expected. The ‘researchers’ spent over 500 hours to prove the above contention. After all if Oprah could be a direct descendant of the African EVE, then Zero had to be helped to seem more important to America.
          I swear this guy’s obsession with constantly one-upping everybody around is just nuts.
          And MLK’s family must be just so proud to know that he’s been overthrown and supplanted as ‘the most significant American Black African’ by a dilettante with NOT ONE individual accomplishment and no allegiance but to himself.

            And, of course no one today speaks of the first slaves sold to the Americas; the Irish. Most people do not even know this happened. The black slaves were a more expensive “commodity”
            EXCERPT: The Irish Slave Trade – The Forgotten “White” Slaves
            The Slaves That Time Forgot
            By John Martin
            “The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

            Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

            From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

            During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

            Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

            As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.”

                When my husband and I were in Dublin, we went to St. Andrew Catholic Church. It started in a barn because the Irish had to worship in secret or the British would exile them, at the least.
                The Irish Parliament excluded Catholics from Parliament. They could not be judges, practice law, or act as executors. Catholics could not serve in the army or navy nor have ammunition, or hold public office. They were not allowed Catholic schools nor could they attend schools in other countries. Catholics could not inherit land, lease land, could not bury their dead in the ruins of Catholic Churches, go on pilgrimage, observe Holy Days or marry a Protestant amongst other things. The Catholic Churches that the British did not destroy, they took over to practice their own Faith.
                The trip was a real eye opener towards the Irish fight for Independence.

    Let’s just be very clear here. Teachers do NOT hand out papers to 4 groups of students without knowing where she/he is going from there. IF she did, then that is gross malpractice. Just as night follows day so instruction follows hand-outs and small groups.
    Shame on you teacher, principal, and superintendent for even hinting that the kid did anything wrong. If the teacher had brought drugs to the school and the student took some home to discuss with their parents, would the kid have been wrong still?

    Thank God that 2nd child didn’t understand the teacher’s instruction not to take the Nation of Islam paper home. Let’s see if the parents care enough to get rid of the teacher, principal, and the superintendent. The Tennessee parents of my childhood would have done that.


  6. They left out something:

    Muhammad, so-called prophet, in fact a common confidence trickster of infinite ambition and limited intellectual means.

    A murderer. A pedophile. A pathological sadist. A woman-hater. An abuser of female individuals, both adult and pre-puberty. The most prominent representative of the strident, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, intolerant of other religions, and aggressive illiteracy which overwhelmingly characterizes the present Muslim “culture”.

    Let’s hope this ACCURATE characterization shall not become soon illegal in the United States, as it already is in the European Union today.


    • LetJusticePrevail" says:

      This isn’t simply about Islam, at least not in the true sense. This is about black racism masquerading as religion. Visit the website written on that “sheet”:


      It’s nothing more or less than a hate site filled with anti-Semitism and anti-white racism.

      • DDearborn says:

        I have to disagree with some of your characterizations. The simple fact and truth is that Jews played a large part in both pre and post Revolutionary war slave trade. In fact their influence on slave trading was such that no trading was done if it fell on a Jewish Holiday. Obviously providing such factual information to students is not anti-Semitic. And of course all the statements regarding these leading figures listed above are in fact true. So again there is no “anti-white racism” or Anti-Semitism in those statements either. Assuming the context in which they were framed by the teacher was not inappropriate. At this late date there is a very legitimate case being made supporting the idea that the Civil War was started not out of sympathy for the plight of the slaves but rather plain old fashion greed.

        So it seems the real story is the uproar created when an educator tries to actually provide students with historical facts. In my opinion they are a bit young for this. However is the Holocaust discussed with students at this age in that school? If so then this material is certainly comparable in terms of its impact on the students.

        And it seems to me that there is nothing wrong with this teachers attempts at presenting her students with well known information about historical figures. However if that website which does appear to have objectionable content and was listed on the papers handout then she stepped over the line. I am a parent with 2 adult children and have also wrestled with curriculum issues over the years.


        • maryfrommarin says:

          Even if all your assertions were true–which I reject–there is no justification for this type of material being presented to children at a 3rd grade level.

          As a discussion STARTER in late Middle school or High school, different story. This is “formal operational” stuff, not “concrete operational”, if you are familiar with Piagetian thinking.

          As an educator and a parent, this situation concerns me deeply.

          Why on earth would a class have papers to take home and papers to leave at school unless the school was hiding something? Information on the founding fathers may be true but is distorted; note that it ignores that it was blacks in Africa selling their own to the slave traders or selling those they had conquered. And it doesn’t highlight that the first chattel slave owner in the US was a black man who had been an indentured servant but sued to keep his indentured servant, who he had already had laboring for him twice as long as he had agreed, forever.

          This is rubbish. An incomparably greater part has been played by blacks themselves and muslims, both arab muslims and black muslims. Even today the anti-black racism of arabs is of a virulence and stridency compared to which largely exaggerated black victimhood Hollywood movies show a walk in the park. Even today downright slavery of the cruelest kind, treating people like cattle – mind you, treating half of the population like less than cattle – is a mark of the “Nation of Islam” in the larger sense. Therefore presenting incomplete, distorted “factual” information to students is not just anti-Semitic and anti-Christian but also an insult to any reader with a modicum of intelligence. Mass-murderers presenting “factual information” on the evil of jaywalking.

    Amazing. I was willing to give the teacher, the principal, and the superintendent the “benefit of the doubt” until I saw that there is now a second parent who confirms the incident. However, I’m no longer willing to do so.

    1) The superintendent claims that he followed up with the principal, and was assured that an “investigation” had been completed. What “due diligence” did the Superintendent undertake to verify the nature and scope of this “investigation”?

    2) The Principal told the Superintendent that an “investigation” had been completed, and that this “sheet” was never provided to any of the students. How does the Principal know this? Did the Principal simply ask the teacher, and take the teacher’s word for it, or did the Principal question the students to see if they had actually seen this handout?

    This whole thing smells like a kettle of fish. Rotten fish.

    An 8 year old is being accused of (at the least) lying about how he came to possess a piece of racist hate literature, and (at worst) of stealing something from inside his classroom and taking it home. And, not only are those accusations being made by the teacher, but also by the Principal and the Superintendent.

    If what is suspected (a teacher used racist materials in class and got “busted” when a student took those materials home against instruction) is true, then that teacher needs to lose her teaching certificate and stripped of her job. Also, if the Principal did not exercise “due diligence” and actually conduct the alleged “investigation” and simply “took the teacher’s ‘word’ for it” then that Principal deserves the same fate as the teacher for lying to the Superintendent. And finally, if the Superintendent did not exercise “due diligence” and verify the integrity of the “investigation” and the manner in which the Principal followed up, then the Superintendent needs to be removed as well.

    I believe that each and every kid in that classroom should be individually questioned (in the presence of their parents) by impartial, independent investigators to determine if:

    1) they have seen this “sheet”
    2) who showed/gave it to them
    3) if they were told to not remove it from the classroom
    4) if anyone else has questioned them about seeing this “sheet”
    5) who else has questioned them about this “sheet”
    6) if they have been given any instructions, warnings, or threats to not talk about the incident
    7) if they have been given any other materials that they were told to not bring home
    8) what other materials have they been told to not bring home

    etc etc etc
