The classes are literally “Abolish the Police” and “Abolishing Prisons and the Police” will be taught at Davidson College in North Carolina and Bard College in New York, respectively.
The plan to use radical social and political philosophies to “decry policing” in all forms, including what they define as “police militarization.” The “critical black studies” class at Davidson will teach students that non-whites and LGBT people are disproportionately targeted by police.
This proposed disproportion in policing causes minorities to be “routinely” surveilled and arrested. The class will even teach that minorities are disproportionately sexually assaulted by police officers.
While the school claims that their values are most “clearly” expressed in the fact that they are “grounded in Christian Reformed” tradition and claim to be “faithful” to “God.” They are leaving many Catholics and protestants wondering. How they can offer such courses that clearly endanger the lives of public servants, cause a sense of chaos in the society, and goes against the scriptural mandate in Romans 13 or how any teaching that pushes racial segregation stands anathema to God’s Holy writ in Galatians 3:28 which says, “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
