How Might Political Groups Respond Differently to the Same Photo?

I had breakfast at Munch’s Sundries and Restaurant in Saint Petersburg, Florida this morning. The Food Network featured it in the 12th season of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. As I was eating the potato pancake smothered in sausage gravy, a picture on the wall next to the booth caught my attention. It was a first-grade class photo from 58 years ago.

It could have been a scene from the 1950s The Little Rascals—huge pane glass windows, wooden classroom desks, children sitting with their backs straight, nearly all of them smiling with their hands folded on their desktops. Well-groomed, healthy, fit, and none of them overfed.

What would The Right say about that picture?

  • Those were the good ole days.
  • I bet they weren’t teaching critical race theory in that classroom.
  • Those kids are well disciplined and getting a good education.
  • Girls looked like girls, and boys looked like boys.

What would The Left say about the picture?

  • No diversity.
  • The faces of non – oppressed children.
  • That’s when they had the Jim Crow laws- this is what racism looks like.
  • White privilege.

What would you say about the picture?

Here is another picture of a second-grade classroom in Topeka Kansas, in the 1950s. Again, huge pane glass windows, wooden classroom desks, children sitting with their backs straight, nearly all of them smiling with their hands folded on their desktops. Well-groomed, healthy, fit, and none of them overfed.

What would The Right say about that picture?

  • Governor George Wallace, a Democrat, said, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”
  • Where is the oppression?
  • Happy well behaved kids before “unintended consequences” of LBJ’s social engineering “The Great Society.”
  • I bet all those kids were getting a decent education back then, and the majority were not born out of wedlock.

What would The Left say about the picture?

  • This is not what we mean when we advocate for black-only safe spaces.
  • The children don’t appear to be oppressed but believe me they are.
  • I didn’t know Topeka was in the South.
  • Those were probably hand-me-down desks from a white school.

What would you say about the picture?

Present-day, we are in a suffocating environment of cancel and woke culture where every picture, every action, every thought is framed within a politically biased narrative. Perhaps this thought exercise elicited a fresh take with clear eyes before the indoctrinated biases dictated a judgment call.
