Nonetheless, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has added Muslim holidays to the school calendar.
In an announcement with Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina, de Blasio informed the world that the nation's largest government school district will close for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.
“We are committed to having a school calendar that reflects and honors the extraordinary diversity of our students,” said Farina.
• Both Farina and de Blasio are aware that people of Southern culture also live in New York. Will they accommodate Confederate holidays for the sake of diversity and multiculturalism.
• The predatory left has never truly cared about diversity or multiculturalism. It's focus is exclusively on undermining Western civilization.
It has saturated our minds with the absurd notion that there is a moral equivalence to allowing our civilization to be displaced with cultures that are different from our own. The Marxist objective is to destroy the white bourgeois allowing the elite to control a subdued proletariat population.
The strategy of the predatory left is to convince the proletariat class that it is the victim of the privileged bourgeois class. Meanwhile, it convinces the bourgeois class that it is unfairly privileged.
In reality, there are no bourgeois or proletariat classes in Western culture. Free markets coupled with Western innovation has enhanced the lives of all.
Nonetheless, we believe the cultural Marxist myth and act out what we believe.
• Below is a list of Confederate holidays de Blasio is refusing to incorporate into the New York City school system. To be truly multicultural, a system must include Southern culture.
