Ballard Scouts host Anti-Racism Book Drive for school libraries

The Ballard Scout Troop 100 is collecting anti-racism books to donate to Northwest Seattle school libraries.

Ballard High School student John is the lead organizer of the book drive—he tells My Ballard that the drive is his Eagle Project.

“I have been feeling outraged about all of the acts of racism that have been happening, and I knew that I had to take action,” John says. “The Anti-Racism Book Drive is just one small way I can try to combat the issue of systemic racism, and work toward social justice.”

The book donations will go to Ballard High School, Whitman Middle School, and Whittier Elementary School. John says that as more scouts sign up to help, more schools in Northwest Seattle will be added.

The troop will be collecting books through Aug. 17; to donate, send books in the mail to Troop 100 2400 NW 80th St PMB 253 Seattle, WA 98117. John encourages that people purchase books through Estelita’s Library, a local black-owned bookstore working toward racial justice.

Who’s “facts” do you need? Just look at the results today. Biden was right there for the 8 years of Obama. Holder went to all large American cities to basically neuter the cops. It’s called the “dissent decree”. Do you feel that defunding cops will make anything better?

Citing stats from a Black Att Gen and a Black President seemed the least biased way to discuss racism. Want other data, look it up. Crime stats don’t change by the year much. Feel free to help this fellow any way YOU choose. With your right hand or your left.

Man, you are good! The down votes proves that others got more indoctrinated in college than you did. They bought into all the crap from Columbus on up to today. And just look at the large American cities today, all chock full of them. Limousine liberals and their white guilt, next on Oprah.

I’m sorry the education system didn’t work for you. Maybe you can be part of improving it, not just being a d-bag?

This is a really great idea! Any additional ways to raise awareness is always a good thing.

“Awareness” is an oppressive tool of whiteness and ignores indigenous and black and brown ways of learning.

Interesting, thanks. I myself study a lot of this, in the modern world there is no way without it, that’s for sure, and I know how lazy students are to study and complete any assignments. I recommend https://edusson.com/write-my-lab-report a resource that I regularly use in order to save time and get a quality product that will help close everything or solve a problem, go ahead, read this review and make a choice. Stay at home, be healthy, and always have the highest scores!
