Sonny B: Open letter to Duval County Schools regarding Read USA

I have been attending school board meetings for the past 5 months. Like parents across the nation, I am concerned for the education and well-being of our children. Whoever controls what goes into the minds of our children at a very young age, is most likely to have them for life. There are some very bad people who are aware of this. That is why it is a constant battle for the children, because future generations can be used for political gain and power to support an agenda. They want the parents asleep and trusting, with little or no resistance as they influence the children spiritually, socially, and politically to make it easy to usher in the Great Reset. Therefore, the parent(s) should be the focal point in influencing their child’s education with the school system being an advocacy for what the parent(s) want for their child, and not the other way around.

I agree with Superintendent Greene, when she said it’s about literacy, and I agree with board member Jones wanting to get three free of charge books each year for elementary children. Books are a wonderful tool in helping to educate our children and to rid our country of illiteracy, especially in the black community. However, I do not want to see a READ USA partnership as another form of indoctrination. It was said on record in last night’s meeting, “the board wants to be transparent to the public.” I can’t agree more. As a result, I would like to have a full list of books that will be on display with a description of the content in each book, because having titles alone does not always translate to the content inside of a book. In addition, because the DCSB is partnering with READ USA, Inc, I feel your committee should have significant input and influence of what is displayed on their website on behalf of the parents.    Reason being, their website is an extension of the books they are providing; therefore, all the material on their website should be scrutinized and removed if deemed inappropriate.   

I made a comment on record last night of my displeasure of the content displayed on READ USA’S website, and that was, “If we did an investigation, would we find more indoctrination of our children through books? Or through visuals like a family reading of a book entitled, ‘A Boy like you’ presented by two white men, with their black adopted son on READ USA’s website? This is a prime example of the identity politics that is destroying our country.” This wasn’t actually a question. I already knew what was on their website. This is not propaganda, this is just one example of what I found on their website as a tool to influence impressionable young minds, and it was disgusting to see a little boy used as a photo-op to push the LGBTQ+ agenda.

I’m going to give you a quote of mine on record from February’s board meeting concerning the LGBTQ+, and any type of injustice of ALL our children, “All lives do matter, not just black, Asian, Hispanics, gays or lesbians. We shouldn’t highlight or give preferential treatment to any group or person. I do not go around announcing I’m a heterosexual. Therefore, I do not need to know your sexual preference. Furthermore, I do not condone bullying, I denounce assaults and violence towards any people or person. All criminal acts should have a swift and harsh penalty without special treatment of a singled-out case, because evil is evil, no matter who it is towards. The care and safety of all children should always be the general focus, and no one group singled-out for a political agenda. Plain and simple, equal justice for all under the law.”

“I believe in traditional marriage (One man and One Woman) in holy matrimony. It is your prerogative if you are two consenting same sex adults having relations. As long as you are not abusing underage children sexually, physically or emotionally there will be no backlash from me nor the law. I want to be clear, just because a person disagrees with your lifestyle does not mean we hate the LGBTQ community, pansexual or any other pronoun one might label themselves at the moment. With that being said, I will not affirm, legitimize nor celebrate any of the lifestyles just mentioned. Again, that does not mean I hate you. You have a right to be what you want to be, and I have a right to disagree. This is the definition of free speech, not hate speech.”

Along with the LGBTQ+, social justice, CRT, and any materials, visuals, videos and statements that causes division and isolation of a particular group or person, I ask it to be removed from READ USA’s website. If you want a description of the content I’m referring to, I can note it in my next email to you. However, I do ask, before you initiate a request from me, I ask that each of you go take a look for yourself, and ask yourself, is this age-appropriate material for elementary students? And why are they focusing on things that has nothing to do with education? And then let your conscience be your guide. Just like racism is taught and learned, telling a certain race that they are oppressed by another race is taught and learned. A little boy can’t choose his bedtime, but he can choose his gender, this is taught and learned, and telling a little black boy that white cops are bad is taught and learned. I believe schools take advantage of the amount of time they have with the students. With this time, they are able to use the power of persuasion to create an illusion to develop curiosity or a negative thought in the mind of a child; which can become detrimental to the developmental psyche of a child. This has no place in academia, and it needs to stop.

In conclusion, this is America in a nutshell, from a quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” So, lets keep the identity politics out of education, please.
