Churchill College Cambridge’s Panel: Churchill Was a ‘White Supremacist Leading an Empire Worse than the Nazis’ - "An academic panel belonging to Churchill College Cambridge has stated that wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill was a ‘white supremacist who led an empire worse than the Nazis’... The panel is chaired by College fellow Professor Priyamvada Gopal, Professor of Postcolonial Studies, who is no stranger to controversy. On June 23rd, 2020, Gopal tweeted “white lives don’t matter … As white lives,” adding: “Abolish whiteness”... Even after her tweets were reported on by the national press, Dr Gopal stood by her remarks, saying the comments were “very clearly speaking to a structure and ideology, not about people.”... The panel, assembled by Dr Gopal to discuss the “Racial Consequences of Mr Churchill”, received criticism before it even convened for failing to include any defenders of the former Prime Minister... Historian Dr Zareer Masani wrote to Churchill College before the discussion even began, warning that the panel lacked any historical expertise and only aimed to “vilify” Churchill.Dr Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny, described the comments as “libels” and that they were “entirely factually incorrect,” adding:
“A white supremacist wants bad things to happen to non-whites ... Churchill fought to protect the hundreds of millions of non-whites in the Empire ... If the Japanese had captured India in WW2 [it] would have led to perhaps tens of millions of deaths if their record [from] elsewhere was comparable."
He then addresses the claim that Churchill’s policies directly resulted in the Bengal Famine:
“Churchill did his best in the exigencies of wartime to alleviate the Bengal Famine ... In his political career he fought again and again against slavery and for the rights of non-whites within the British Empire. Churchill was moreover instrumental in destroying the worst racist in history, Adolf Hitler.”"

The Left is trying to redefine critical race theory because it's losing - "The Left tried to use last summer’s momentum from the Black Lives Matter movement to push its destructive ideas of so-called “anti-racism” and critical race theory. Now, it's frantically trying to redefine the terms of the debate, as the momentum has built up against it instead.  Liberals are now asking that you pay no attention to the curriculum behind the curtain. They have taken to insisting that critical race theory isn’t actually being taught in K-12 schools, even though there are clear examples that show that it is. The New York Times even wrote in July 2020 about the “anti-racism” programs being brought to parents and staff in various school districts. Another New York Times piece published just two weeks ago noted that critical race theory is a "framework that has found its way into K-12 public education." The controversial, Pulitzer-winning 1619 Project, which was riddled with historical inaccuracies and crafted on the false premise that the American Revolution was fought to preserve slavery, has also been pushed into K-12 curricula. The project’s architect, Nikole Hannah-Jones, is among the many liberals trying to cast critical race theory in the narrowest terms possible.  She is trying to distance her shoddy “journalism” from critical race theory because the push against it is real and effective... Now, they’re trying to erase their own connections to Ibram X. Kendi, Robin DiAngelo, and other racial hucksters whom they zealously promoted not long ago — people who, yes, have managed to worm their way into K-12 curricula. All of those school districts spending thousands on Kendi’s books, “anti-racism” programs, and bureaucrats with words such as “equity” in their title — now, these clowns want to make us all think that we imagined all of it."

After 8 hours, 250-plus speakers, California board adopts ethnic studies model curriculum - "critics have charged that the writers of the curriculum narrowly defined critical analysis through the prism of critical race theory. It is a specific legal theory that seeks to explain root causes of racist government policies, like exclusionary zoning and public school assignments. They complain that attributing all actions, implicit and explicit, to white oppression would pit students against one another, create tensions and undermine ethnic studies’ goal of empathy and racial progress... state board President Linda Darling-Hammond defended critical race theory and, in the only change to the draft curriculum that the board approved on Thursday, added a definition missing in the document"
Weird. Liberals tell us it's not being taught in schools. But according to Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum - Curriculum Frameworks & Instructional Materials (CA Dept of Education), Chapter 3: Instructional Guidance for K–12 Education mentions that teachers "should familiarize themselves with current scholarly research around ethnic studies instruction, such as critically and culturally/community relevant and responsive pedagogies, critical race theory, and intersectionality, which are key theoretical frameworks and pedagogies that can be used in ethnic studies research and instruction."

Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ on Twitter - "BREAKING: The nation's largest teachers union has approved a plan to promote critical race theory in all 50 states and 14,000 local school districts. The argument that "critical race theory isn't in K-12 schools" is officially dead.
The union has also approved funding for "increasing the implementation" of CRT in K-12 curricula and for attacking conservative groups who oppose CRT indoctrination. The teachers union has made critical race theory its #1 priority—and want to implement it nationwide.
According to a recent YouGov survey, 58 percent of Americans oppose critical race theory, including 72 percent of independents who believe teaching it in schools is "bad for America." But the teachers union wants to double-down and impose this divisive ideology on your children.
The NEA represents 3 million public school employees in all 50 states. They have a $350 million annual budget and an army of operatives in 14,000 local communities. They have now declared war on parents who oppose critical race theory—and parents must fight back!"
One proposed doublethink is that using CRT as a framework isn't the same as teaching CRT. But ironically, CRT tells us that prizing meritocracy and inculcating punctuality is white supremacy culture. In any event, most people probably would be okay with teaching CRT academically. What they're not okay with is indoctrination
The motion calls to increase the implementation of CRT - which means that CRT is already present, despite liberal gaslighting
Some muppet claimed that CRT wasn't being taught in schools below university. Predictably, when presented with this evidence, he doubled down and insulted me

Mythinformed MKE on Twitter - "Texas teacher laments a new law which she says prevents her from teaching Critical Race Theory next fall. She says teachers are already activists & claims this law demands teachers lie to students. Her call to action: Hinting that teachers should disobey the law en masse."

The NYC school system is teaching my ten-year-old son that he's racist - "“Unfortunately,” a teacher said, “a lot of racism stems from the home. And just like the video, a lot of people’s grandparents were raised a certain way, and things were different back then, and then their parents learn it and their children learn it, and we need to stop it. And it’s hard, too, because you learn first from your parents and from your family, and we need to learn how to love everyone, and skin color should not matter at all, so this is what we’re trying to do, we need to be the change, and we need to make a difference. And you need to form your own opinions.”  What my son heard was that he is racist and doesn’t even know it, and that his parents and grandparents provided this legacy to him. I told him that we need to treat all people with respect, kindness, and with a generosity of heart, and that skin colour is not indicative of a person’s heart.  The second part of the lesson took place the following school day. The teachers recapped Friday’s lesson, saying that white people are more likely to get a job, a house, and a decent education than a black person, because this has been "built into our system for generations and generations."  This time they showed videos from The New York Times. The final video shows a series of self-flagellating white people who twist themselves into pretzel shapes to try to imagine that they are both not racist and very, very racist at the same time. It was when the teachers raised the issue of white privilege that my son said he felt weird being the only white kid in the conference. He couldn’t tell if he was supposed to feel bad for the kids who are mistreated or feel bad about himself for being racist or if there was anything he could do about it anyway since these problems are ingrained and that he would be racist even if he didn’t think he was.  No answer was given as to what action these kids should take to either be not racist or to see that racism does not throttle our country for generations onward.  If racism is a systemic problem, and we’re teaching kids to create systemic solutions, what does that look like to a ten year old? Instead of teaching kids about all of the disadvantages their peers have, which basically leads to pity, why not teach kids about how all people are created equally, and we should meet each other where we stand? What are 10 year olds supposed to do about systemic racism, or racism at all? Aren’t they better positioned to simply not be racist?  This kind of indoctrination will not make white kids think differently about their own biases, but will instead create biases where there perhaps were none before, and that goes doubly for the children who are in immigrant families. Dividing kids by race leads kids to think they should divide themselves by race, emotionally, socially, and institutionally. It’s easy to prove this, just look at the segregated graduation ceremonies and proms in schools today... I reached out to my son’s teachers for comment, and they responded saying, “I am not comfortable and cannot comment on the record but I would be happy to discuss any concerns you have as a parent and not as a journalist. For the conversations we had we followed the Chancellor’s regulations and guidelines on addressing the issue… I feel that it's not really appropriate to be using our classroom as research.”  I can totally relate, since the indoctrination of my 10-year-old into the world of critical race theory seems “not really appropriate” to me."

James Lindsay - Posts | Facebook - "Now that Critical Race Theory has been called out by name, activists, scholars, and journalists will repackage it as "racial/cultural sensitivity" or one of many other names and start to claim Critical Race Theory is a right-wing strawman. Very happy to help people understand it!"

Escape The Echo Chamber - Posts | Facebook - "One of the mistakes Chris Wallace made last week was calling the banning of a Critical Race Theory a banning of ‘racial sensitivity training’. The former being a subset of the other, not a synonym.  Training government employees on relevant cultural variances they are likely to encounter would be a positive step. Indoctrinating government employees into an oppressor/oppressed philosophy where one race is inherently evil and incorrect, is racist ideology. The later should not happen."

James Lindsay - Posts | Facebook - "The first wave of retaliation against POTUS will be to publicly say he doesn't know what Critical Race Theory really is, and thus he's straw manning it, which is a ploy for fascistic overreach. Meanwhile, they'll start quietly rebranding anyway. Critics of CRT will be "alt-right."Average left-leaning people who don't really understand what Critical Race Theory is will see this move as Trump being racist because according to Critical Race Theory, all criticism of Critical Race Theory is motivated by racism. That's how it will be widely framed."

Tom Cotton introduces bill to ban critical race theory from U.S. military - "Following concerns that the United States military has become ingrained with wokeness amid the ongoing progressive effort to decentre patriotism and nationalism, Sen. Tom Cotton announced on Thursday the introduction of legislation that would ban critical race theory and broadly “anti-American” ideas from the military.In recent weeks the wokeism present in the U.S. military has come to light, with statements made by official U.S. military accounts denouncing Fox News host Tucker Carlson for criticizing the military’s priorities and failure to prepare for Chinese aggression.Among the ideas currently being taught to members of the U.S. military officer corps is the claim that the  United States is a “fundamentally racist country.” Sentiments to that effect have been echoed by President Joe Biden."

Chinese-American Parents Condemn Critical Race Theory - "I spoke at an online conference of CAPA-Fairfax County, a local chapter of Chinese-American parent groups in the country, mobilizing to defend merit-based education in the United States.As some participants spoke in Chinese, I could make out some key phrases: “‘moral courage,” “public service,” and “Cultural Revolution.”When it came my turn to speak, I told the Chinese-American parents: you can save America. After surviving the Cultural Revolution, they uniquely recognize the dangers to an ideology like critical race theory, the race-based philosophy that dismantles core principles in our society, such as the idea of the American Dream, replacing the idea of equality with the disingenuous notion of “equity,” and punishing Asian-American children for their advanced academics.They cheered their potential role in the country that they love.And now we see just that kind of moral leadership by another association, CACAGNY 紐約同源會, the Chinese American Citizens Alliance Greater New York, which published a letter yesterday denouncing critical race theory as “a hateful, divisive, manipulative fraud.”... I’ve republished the full letter here so that you can be inspired to stand up with these parents for a simple hope: to challenge the divisive, bigoted and racist ideas of critical race theory and advocate for an America where children are valued for the “content of their character,” as Martin Luther King said, not the color of their skin... Another trend that should concern us is CRT’s coming collision with immigrants. Black militancy was always receptive to the view that immigrants steal jobs and resources from Blacks, but the bigger irritant is immigrant values. Arriving with little more than their human capital, immigrants are grateful to be here, work hard and educate their children hard, and believe in the American dream under the Constitutional guarantee of equal rights. Most infuriating for CRT is that immigrants, including Blacks from West Africa and the Caribbean, are making real progress. When CRT eventually clashes with immigrants, we will find CRT’s racism and hate against us ratcheted up another notch... parents need to speak with their kids to anti-indoctrinate (or un-doctrinate) them at home. This needs to start early, because CRT indoctrination also starts early. Don’t trust schools and teachers blindly."

Critical race theory: a ruling-class ideology - "There have been protests against racism in the past, of course. But this year has been different. Never before have people on every continent, in countries and towns facing their own unique problems, turned out in such huge numbers to support the same cause. Never before have books like White Fragility, Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race and How To Be An Antiracist become international bestsellers. And never before has a protest movement had such establishment backing. In the UK, BLM has been publicly endorsed by the royal family, the football Premier League, and senior politicians. Multinational corporations have got in on the act, too. Ice-cream maker Ben and Jerry’s has pledged to do all it can to dismantle white supremacy, while elite universities have issued statements denouncing their own institutional racism.The mainstreaming and elite-backing of anti-racism initiatives speaks to a new understanding of racism. Critical race theory (CRT) used to be a minority pursuit, an obscure academic interest. In 2020 it provided the rationale for protests, books, diversity workshops and school lessons... CRT is newly fashionable and highly influential, but it has a long and complex history. Its origins can be traced back to a divide within the US civil-rights movement. Free speech, democracy and legal equality were initially considered integral to the fight for civil rights, but by the end of the 1960s, with progress appearing to have stalled and both racism and poverty still major problems, groups within the movement began to question the efficacy of these principles. Many arrived at the conclusion that legal equality not only left social inequality intact but actually provided the context and justification for its continuation... This view of race and racism, drawn from CRT but which is now mainstream, represents a significant break from the anti-racism of the past. Anti-racism has moved from focusing on the material conditions of people’s lives to the inner workings of their minds; from challenging legal inequality to calling-out cultural representations; from aiming to eradicate race to seeing everyone as racialised; from considering racism an aberration to viewing it as the norm. This shift in anti-racism throws up new problems.Much of the thinking, and many of the leading proponents of CRT, come from the US. Yet often its ideas are imported wholesale into the UK and other countries without taking into account their specific historical and cultural context... Presenting racism as endemic and intractable ignores all progress that has been made and suggests attempts at further change will be futile. Instead, all campaigners can do is dig ever more deeply for examples to expose the racism they know to exist. A focus on microaggressions, subtle acts of racism that may be perpetrated unknowingly – for example, asking someone where they are from – may well surprise people who came up against legal discriminatory policies in employment and housing several decades ago. Yet, to DiAngelo, ‘racism’s adaptations over time are more sinister than concrete rules such as Jim Crow’. Just at the point when ‘scientific’ racism was being thoroughly discredited, CRT breathed life back into racial thinking by insisting everyone has a racial identity, and this alone determines our perception and understanding of the world. Rejecting colour-blindness pushes us to view each other as racialised beings. The emphasis on group membership simultaneously erodes both differences between individuals and the possibility of finding common cause across identity groupings. At worst, this provides fresh justification for racial segregation. Eddo-Lodge does not see the increase in interracial families as a positive sign that people are becoming less prejudiced. Instead she argues that ‘white privilege is never more pronounced than in our intimate relationships, our close friendships and our families’, and urges parents of mixed-race children ‘to be humble, and to learn that they are racist even if they don’t think that they are’. CRT’s obsession with racial categorisation and white privilege leaves little room to consider the impact of social class on people’s life chances. Indeed, in the rush to construct intersectional hierarchies that position people of colour as oppressed victims of entrenched white superiority, the experiences of wealthy, highly educated, well-connected black people are overlooked. And rather than promoting solidarity between working-class people of all skin colours, poor white people must be taught to recognise their privileges.Some people certainly do benefit from CRT. The academics, experts and workplace trainers that comprise the burgeoning diversity industry make a good living and find an important sense of purpose in revealing our unconscious bias, hearing penance and holding out the promise of absolution. They are morally invested in the existence of racism and cannot afford for it to ever disappear.Members of the wider graduate class of experts, bureaucrats and managers have imbibed the CRT script. They know that, to paraphrase the socialite and journalist Nancy Mitford, referring to ‘people of colour’ is ‘U’ (vocabulary that marks one out as upper class), while ‘coloured people’ is distinctly ‘non-U’. They know that three years ago, the acronym BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) fell out of fashion and was replaced by BAME (with Asian specified). And they know that BAME itself is now on its way out. Attitudes change and language evolves over time but policing vocabulary in the name of enforcing anti-racism is how today’s graduate class shores up its moral authority and social status. Their special insights into white privilege and the impact of microaggressions allow them to justify their position. This elite anti-racist project is terrible for everyone else. Black and white people alike are reduced to their skin colour and set in opposition to one another. Black people must learn to see themselves as victims, white people as privileged oppressors. Back in the days of empire, upper-class British boys were trained up for a life in the colonies, they had a role to fulfil managing and civilising the natives. Over a century on, the natives are now at home rather than abroad, and white rather than black or brown, but the civilising mission remains the same. It is now white working-class men who are made to atone for their privilege in a neverending process of repentance. As DiAngelo puts it: ‘A positive white identity is an impossible goal. White identity is inherently racist; white people do not exist outside the system of white supremacy.’ We have a new elite that uses not racism but anti-racism to invent differences between people which it exploits for its own ends. These radicals do not want to end racism but for it to continue indefinitely. They must not be allowed to get away with this."

Dems Say Trump's 'Critical Race Theory' Ban Ended Most Federal Diversity Training
This is worrying, since it means most Federal diversity training was (and now once again is) the poison that is Critical Race Theory

White House wants to cancel federal agencies’ race-related trainings - The Washington Post - "The memo, released on Friday, also tells all federal agencies to identify and if possible cancel contracts that involve teaching that America is an “inherently racist or evil country.”... In the memo, Vought writes that “it has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda.”He then refers to press reports that say federal employees “have been required to attend trainings where they are told that ‘virtually all White people contribute to racism’ or where they are required to say that they ‘benefit from racism.’”"

Escape The Echo Chamber - Posts | Facebook - "Sandia Laboratories spent good money sending employees to a three-day workshop where they learned that qualities such as “hard work” were damaging elements of “white, male culture”. After teaching these racial and gender stereotypes, all white males in the class were asked to apologize to ‘marginalized’ people they harmed.  Sandia is home to some of our country’s top nuclear secrets and research."

National Nuclear Lab’s Employees Sent to Seminar That Claimed ‘Rugged Individualism’ and ‘Hard Work’ Are ‘White Male Culture’ - "The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. found itself in a small scandal last month after visitors to its website discovered an infographic that listed "hard work" and "rational thought" as traits of white culture. The crude stereotypes drew well-deserved derision.It's not just the museum. Last year, Sandia National Laboratories, a federal contractor responsible for building the U.S.'s nuclear weapons, sent its executives to mandatory diversity training with the White Men's Caucus on Eliminating Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Organizations. This group's educational materials—which were obtained by Christopher Rufo, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation—include many of the same racial stereotypes... The seminar also asked white males to recite a series of "white privilege statements" and "male privilege statements." It concluded with its white male participants writing letters of apology to marginalized people whom they may have harmed"

Jamil Jivani: What Black conservatives are saying following the Derek Chauvin verdict - "Ghanaian-Canadian blogger Samuel Sey... believes that what’s happening in the United States can be summed up as: “critical race theorists want to end liberal democracy to establish a postmodernist, Marxist, ‘antiracist’ system.” His recent encounter with Calgary’s Ambrose University is a revealing example of how Black conservatives in Canada are silenced on important issues of race and justice... Ambrose University apologized for hosting a Black man who did not parrot the predictable talking points that the school’s administrators believe Black people should say. How “progressive.”"

‘Black linguistic justice’: Professors demand end to standard English as the norm - "A national professional association of writing instructors recently published a list of demands that argued the current emphasis on standard English is rooted in racism and called for a complete overhaul of how language is taught.It was published by a subcommittee with the Conference on College Composition and Communication, part of the National Council of Teachers of English.The statement called for an end to “White Mainstream English,” arguing such an action would “decolonize” students’ minds and the English language, as well as help students “unlearn white supremacy.” The demands were written by five English professors and a writing scholar and the document is titled: “This Ain’t Another Statement! This is a DEMAND for Black Linguistic Justice!” “The language of Black students has been monitored, dismissed, demonized—and taught from the positioning that using standard English and academic language means success,” the professors argued... While the professors push for black language to be taught to students by black language experts, they also demand that nonnative speakers “refrain from engaging in Black linguistic appropriation.”"
It seems English professors spend most of their time on things other than English. No wonder Americans can't write

Arizona State Dean: Grading Writing Based On Quality Is ‘Racist,’ Promotes ‘White Language Supremacy’ - "An Arizona State University Associate Dean penned a 358-page book detailing how grading student’s writing is a form of racism and white supremacy.In a book titled “Labor-Based Grading Contracts: Building Equity and Inclusion in the Compassionate Writing Classroom,” professor Asao Inoue encourages teachers to ditch grading for a “labor-based” grading system wherein students earn grades based on their effort. The quality of a student’s writing would not help or hinder their course grade... the author admits that the theory of “labor-based” grading is rooted in critical race theory... Critical race theory contributed to Inoue’s idea that ranking things is a system rooted in racism. Because grading is a form of ranking, grading must also be a racist idea. In his book, Inoue dubbed grading and the education system writ large “racist” for their connections to ranking... Nearly every U.S. school requires children to speak and write in proper English during English and literacy classes. According to the author, holding students to that standard is racist.“The traditional purposes and methods used for grading writing turn out to be de facto racist and White supremacist,” Inoue writes. “Grading by a standard, thus, is how White language supremacy is perpetuated in schools.”... Speaking proper English is considered a “white racial habitus.” According to the book, all things that are derived from the “white racial habitus” are inherently “white supremacist.”... At one point, Inoue goes as far as to call upholding grading systems a “slave-making mechanism.” “All the ways we judge language, even by well-intentioned teachers, are almost always racist and slave-making, almost always White supremacist”... In an anecdote, Inoue claims that he lived in an “explicitly racist world” because he got a B in an English class while getting A’s in other, more advanced, classes. He claims that his racial composition attributed to his average grade in a high school English class."
"Compassion" means throwing out standards. No wonder Americans suck at writing

Meme - "Kimberly Parker Tamlin-Vesper: Using Big Words Is Another Form of White Supremacy. Blacks Who Live in Urban Areas Don't Have the Same Access to Education as Whites. This Makes Them Less Smart. If You Feel the Need to Communicate Like You Are a Thesaurus You Are Probably a White Supremacist"
Possibly a joke account, but given the above...

A Boston hospital is partnering with Harvard professors to give “preferential care based on race.” Too bad if you have the wrong skin color! - "Doctors Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse of Harvard base their justification of this new problem on the fact that more black people per capita had severe symptoms with COVID-19. This, of course, they attribute to sYsTeMiC rAciSm.  As Americans, we aren't allowed to have a conversation on other causes of this phenomenon.
We aren't allowed to discuss the genetic purpose of melanin and the generation of Vitamin D, which has been connected to COVID-19 severity.
My red-headed brother can synthesize Vitamin D faster than others – a genetic adaptation that would give him an advantage in cold, gloomy locales. If you drop him in the tropics, however, he'd fry in 10 minutes flat.
But the widespread Vitamin D deficiency among those with darker skin who now live in colder, less sunny climates – and the possible health connections – isn't something we're allowed to discuss. We're only allowed to to support the dismantling of the white, colonialist patriarchy.
We also can't talk about the fact that COVID-19 disproportionately affects those who are obese and have Type-2 diabetes, and that black and Hispanic individuals have the highest rates of these comorbidities.
"After analyzing ten years of hospital data, we concluded that the trend we observed was painfully robust: white [heart failure] patients at Brigham and Women's Hospital—a prominent, predominantly white Harvard teaching hospital—were indeed more likely to be admitted to the cardiology service," said the doctors.
They then admit a sentence later that this disparity was because "white patients were perceived to advocate for cardiology admission more often and more intensely," which has zero to do with institutional racism and everything to do with education and advocacy.
Still, the woke docs were on a mission, and they weren't going to be thwarted by science or common sense...
You have to wonder how many white patients are going to die now because they aren't referred correctly due to this skewed "algorithm" in the hospital's system, but I guess that's the point.
"Offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity may elicit legal challenges from our system of colorblind law... We encourage other institutions to proceed confidently on behalf of equity and racial justice, with backing provided by recent White House executive orders."
Gotta get that Marxist equity, y'all."

Boston doctors call for racially discriminating against patients in order to promote social justice - "Dr. Bram Wispelwey, and Dr. Michelle Morse, both of whom teach at Harvard Medical School, wrote that their mission was to "comprehensively confront structural racism." To go about this, they plan to enlist the tools of critical race theory (CRT). They slam what they call "colorblind policies," or the concept of equality for individuals of all races and ethnicities under the law, saying that it is not achieving their desired ends with enough speed... But what about existing laws, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars discrimination that favors come racial groups over others? The doctors have thought that through, too. They think that those laws are not that important."

Leonydus Johnson (leave/me/alone) on Twitter - "If it makes sense for an entire group of people to be seen as collective victims when something bad happens to an individual in that group, why shouldn't that group also be seen as collective victimizers when an individual in that group does something bad to someone else? "
Some groups only get collective blame. Others only get collective praise

Escape The Echo Chamber - Posts | Facebook - "The practitioners of critical race theory tie themselves in knots trying to apply their racial views to society. Here, the author calls racism by blacks “white supremacy” and pronounces that white supremacy ‘does not require a white person’. There is a kernel of truth in her essay, assigning people characteristics based on their membership in a perceived racial group is a problem. Unfortunately, her solution is to continue the practice by blaming one racial group for the actions of another.  Racism won’t end until society recognizes that it is a social construct and that it has no value. The critical theorists have given racism a new life because they embrace race as a measuring stick.
“The point I’ve made through all of those experiences is that anti-Asian racism has the same source as anti-Black racism: white supremacy. So when a Black person attacks an Asian person, the encounter is fueled perhaps by racism, but very specifically by white supremacy. White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it.”... “The dehumanization of Asian people by U.S. society is driven by white supremacy and not by any Black person who may or may not hate Asians.”..."

Titania McGrath on Twitter - "Martin Luther King believed that people should “not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character”. He was clearly too lazy to read Critical Race Theory. Therefore Martin Luther King was white. Or at the very least white-adjacent. Time to move on."

Quote by Neil deGrasse Tyson - "People cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey schoolteacher asserted that evolution and the Big Bang are not scientific and that Noah's ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it's about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers"
Weird. The left tell us that it's a violation of the First Amendment to say that CRT can't be taught in schools

Facebook - "When they say they aren't teaching Critical Race *Theory* in schools, they're telling an obvious lie that gives away the game, and it's important. They're not *teaching* Critical Race Theory (much), they're DOING Critical Race Theory, which requires "praxis" (applying Theory). Critical Race Theory is a Critical Theory. All Critical Theories require praxis (a Marxian term for doing activism based on Theory), by definition. They mostly aren't teaching Critical Race Theory, then; they're DOING IT, to your kids. That's MUCH WORSE. The laws being passed don't prohibit the teaching of Critical Race Theory. They prevent Critical Race Praxis, which is all the Woke activists really want. But since banning Critical Race Praxis bans a crucial aspect of Critical Race Theory, they can whine about CRT bans. Many of these bills *explicitly* say that they don't ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory, but they block Critical Race Praxis, thus Theory, and this allows CRT defenders to equivocate and then conflate ("they're banning teaching about slavery"). The thing is, the lies are distractions. They've been blocked from engaging in Critical Race Praxis, which is the application of that poison to your children, and they're losing their minds over it and doing everything they possibly can to lie their way into continuing it."
In other words, there's a difference between telling kids that in CRT, white people are racist, and telling kids that white people are racist

Facebook - "Whiteness is a pandemic"
"This man, Damon Young, is a New York Times contributor. This article is one of the most vile, racist diatribes I have yet seen being condoned by the legacy media.  This is the direct result of racist Social Justice ideology, Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, “Anti-Racism” Training, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” - it goes by many names - in our schools, companies, churches and government. Many people over the past four years told me this would never escape the Universities. Wrong. It went mainstream in June of 2020 and we’re starting to see the fruit. If you think it ends here, you don’t know much of history. Or of the evil man is capable of.  This kind of racism should be loudly, universally and unabashedly condemned in our society, *especially* by those who call themselves liberals and progressives. If you think it’s hard to call this what it is, to speak truth, *today* - it will be much harder tomorrow, next year, five years from now. It will be much harder for your kids and grandkids.  Step up."

NYC instructor 'relieved of his teaching duties' after criticizing racial 'indoctrination' of students - "A math instructor has been "relieved of his teaching duties" after voicing criticism of his Manhattan private school's purported racial "indoctrination" of its students.  Grace Church School (GCS) sent faculty, staff and administrators a letter Sunday notifying them that parents had expressed discomfort and students had requested to be removed from teacher Paul Rossi's class after his public criticism... "We are using language that makes them feel less than, for nothing that they are personally responsible for," Davison purportedly said.  Another tweet from FAIR claims to contain audio with Davison saying that he shared some of Rossi's concerns about anti-racist ideas. One of those included the "demonization of being White" and "the attempt to link anybody who's white to the perpetuation of white supremacy.""
Whitleblowers must be destroyed

Opinion | A teacher pushes back against K-12 critical race theory indoctrination - The Washington Post - "Progressives, who are selectively aghast about “politicizing” education, do not object to those state and local governments that are mandating the CRT indoctrination that other governments are forbidding. Would progressives object to legislatures’ banning the teaching of, say, creationism?  Or that the Earth is flat, which is about as defensible as the assertion (see the New York Times’s 1619 Project, which is being adopted in thousands of schoolrooms) that the American Revolution was launched to protect slavery, after the November 1775 British offer of freedom to slaves who fled to join the British army. This offer came, however, seven months after the battles of Lexington and Concord, which had been preceded by the Stamp Act (1765), the Boston Massacre (1770), the Boston Tea Party (1773), the British closure of the port of Boston (1774), the June 15, 1775, appointment of George Washington as commander in chief of the Continental Army, and the June 17 Battle of Bunker Hill."

Seattle libraries implement racial segregation in the name of social justice - "The King County library in Washington State have been holding "separate but equal" training sessions for their employees, all in the name of social justice... The consultants discovered widespread "institutional racism" in the library system—and dismissed employees who reported "not experiencing or witnessing racism while working at KCLS" as likely suffering from the false consciousness of "internalized racism."... Rufo told The Post Millennial that the pictures of the signs for the training sessions he posted on social media today came from a whistleblower and reminded him "…signs on (segregated) water fountains in the 1950's.""Segregation was wrong in the 1950's and it is wrong today, especially in King County named after Martin Luther King, Jr." Rufo said. According to Rufo, similar sessions are being held at the Veterans Administration Puget Sound (VAPS) facility and the King County Prosecutor's Office... King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg and senior staff have recently required employees to sign a "equity and social justice" pledge and assigned "continued training for white employees," who must "do the work" to "learn the true history of racism in our country." Rufo said that every time he writes an article or posts a picture from the sessions, more whistleblowers come forward.Washington State government officials, especially those in King County and Seattle have been infusing "critical race theory" into their policies and trainings including in public schools... The Post Millennial exposed critical race theory practices and curriculum being practiced and taught in Seattle schools. Seattle public schools released a plan to bring students back into the classroom from remote learning, but differentiated the priorities for who should come back first based on many factors involving a measure of those who are most marginalized. Per the guidelines, "students furthest from educational justice," and "students of color" would be given priority on returning to school for face-to-face instruction... Students in Washington as young as 11-years-old to refer to a riot as an "uprising" and rioters as "freedom fighters" and that "cops are racist." Students were even encouraged to donate to bail-funds that have recently been tied to helping release an accused child rapist. Adams Elementary School PTA in Ballard, rather than teach about the achievements and history of African Americans in America for Black History Month in February, provided a curriculum loaded with links to progressive ideology including racism against whites, sexual topics, anti police, glorifying racist politicians and even recommending anti Israel books written by known anti-Semites. The "Social Justice" reading recommendations outline the complete ideology... University of Washington had decided to create "race-based caucuses and affinity groups" to help "…organizations advance equity, diversity and inclusion goals by providing a formal resource for staff and leaders to acknowledge, discuss and dismantle oppressive systems from within by starting with the difficult conversations." UW segregated these caucuses into three: the "Black caucus," the "People of Color caucus," and the "White caucus." Each has their own separate meeting schedule. In digging further into the UW source list and what is truly behind this exercise it also recommends "In defense of looting" and  notes that "…finally, this New York Times article is a great primer for the reasons behind asks to defund the police: Why it's time to stop funding the police."... Rufo's exposes has triggered a Department of Justice investigation into critical race theory in government institutions in Seattle and was cited as contributing to President Donald Trump's ban on critical race theory being used in federal agencies."
Of course liberals are upset Trump ended federal support for this sort of racist venom

New York University moves to implement racial segregation in student dorms - "Since late June, the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services at New York University (NYU) has been working closely with a small, student-led task force to make racially segregated housing a reality in undergraduate student dorms... African American students, the group states, desperately require a “safe space” where they can escape from students, staff and faculty of other races... The vile argument advanced in the proposal is that all non-African American students, staff and faculty are, to varying degrees, hostile and dangerous to African American students. Their animosity stems from an inherent antipathy towards individuals of different races. Therefore, to end discrimination and ensure true equality within the university, African Americans must completely separate themselves from the rest of the community and “train” non-African Americans to overcome their intrinsic racism.This irrational and anti-scientific ideology lies at the heart of similar proposals made at several major academic institutions across the country in recent years. This includes the moves towards racially segregated housing at Syracuse University and the recent calls for the implementation of racial quotas at several elite American universities... It is no coincidence that a renewed push for race-based housing at NYU comes at a time of unprecedented social, economic and political crisis in the United States and throughout the world. This move is an outcome of the ever-intensifying racialist campaign being conducted by the sections of the ruling class and affluent middle class politically represented by the Democratic Party and its media mouthpiece, the New York Times. For over 50 years, these oligarchs and their obedient servants in the upper-middle class have relentlessly sought to defend their interests by dividing the working masses through the promotion of racial and identity politics... A review of studies on wealth stratification between the richest and poorest members of the African American community alone exposes the class interests behind identity politics. According to statistics from 2017, the top 10 percent of the African American population owns over 75 percent of all wealth owned by African Americans. The bottom 50 percent of the African American population has zero or negative wealth. Under Barack Obama’s administration, the top 1 percent of African Americans saw their share of wealth double from 19.4 percent to 40.5 percent. Working class African Americans are worse off than they were four decades ago, while things have never been better for the rich... Identity politics serve solely the interests of the wealthy and privileged layer of society that has profited from the suffering of the working class."

San Francisco will give $5,000 to help your small business, unless you're a white guy. - "They say they are using this as an opportunity to advance the city's "equity goals."In a press release from the mayor, she says they are prioritizing "minority-owned businesses including women-owned, immigrant-owned, people of color-owned businesses," with the money. For those unfamiliar with history, this is a practice formerly known as "discrimination.""

Oregon’s Segregated Covid Relief Fund Is Blatantly Unconstitutional - WSJ - "The state of Oregon, hoping to strike a blow against both the pandemic and “systemic racism,” has established a Covid relief fund exclusively for blacks and black-owned businesses. The Oregon Cares Fund website accurately describes the program as “unprecedented.” It is also surely unconstitutional... if the systemic-racism refrain of the summer’s protests, repeated in the state’s defense of the Oregon Cares Fund, becomes the legal test justifying blatantly discriminatory legislation, the promise of equal protection would become meaningless. Judges would have no need to hear any evidence of actual discrimination. Ms. Garcia is Mexican-American. The Portland-based Latino Network asserted that “the actions of Maria Garcia are anti-Black.” But there’s no reason to doubt her business has been harmed as badly by the pandemic as have black businesses that qualify for Cares Fund relief. Her only shortcoming is that she isn’t black. In the language of equal protection law, but for her race she is similarly situated to a black-owned restaurant down the street. If her exclusion doesn’t constitute a violation of equal protection, I’m not sure what does."

James Lindsay, getting one billion moms on Twitter - "I've recently read Crit Race Theory 2nd ed. It was annoying with no proper references to check arguments. The argument was more emotive with an encouragement to believe without questioning. Like a fundamentalist tract to make one believe without questions."
"Their entire "scholarly" canon is like this. They assert stuff, then incestuously cite one another asserting the same stuff over and over again without ever actually providing any substance or support for it. It's the construction of pseudo-reality.
If you do this long enough and with enough participants, you can basically will an entire "academic discipline" into existence even though it's all pure sophistry. Leverage that hard enough, and you're teaching it, and then we occupy a pseudo-reality."

Guilford County Schools and 'white science' - "Guilford County Schools has cut ties with a PhD. “professional development presenter” over her controversial tweets... Kimya Dennis, who conducted a three-day training on gender discrimination for Guilford County principals and assistant principals earlier this month. Dennis’ Twitter account is inactive, but both TCB and the N&R report she tweeted on Jan. 8:
“This week I have nine (9) trainings-presentations for school assistant principals and school principals,” Dennis tweeted. “My trainings-presentations include a request that most books used in schools be burned. “Stop using white history, white mathematics and white science as the foundation.”
While I steer from relativity politics, this has to be said–if a conservative mentioned ‘burning books’ in any context, liberals would be (figuratively speaking) calling for his/her head. The liberal TCB, of course, calls outrage over Dennis’ ties with GCS a “conservative backlash”...
Hardister also told TCB “I don’t see how race conflates with science and math.” Right on. Math is universal–as Furious Styles told Tre and Ricky after they took college aptitude tests in the movie “Boyz in the Hood.” But science? I agree that science is more subjective than any of us might think. The problem is subjective science undercuts liberals’ biggest issue these days—climate change. The science is settled, they say–the earth is in danger and we’re all going to die. But what if—just what if—climate change turns out to be another example of white science?"
By labelling all criticism a "conservative backlash", liberals can avoid accountability for their spreading of racial hatred since many credulou people will swallow the narrative

Revolution Consumes New York’s Elite Dalton School - WSJ - "The Dalton School, an elite private prep school in New York’s Upper East Side, is experiencing something of a moral panic... The demands read like a manifesto to codify permanently the “oppressed” status of black students and teachers. Among them:
• Expand the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to at least 12 staffers. That works out to about one for every 100 students and would cost at least $1.5 million a year. What will they do all day? No doubt ferret out ever subtler racist infractions, real or imagined. The diversity industry needs friction to survive, so it perpetually reworks the definition of racism.
• Reroute 50% of contributions to Dalton to the New York public school system. An effective 50% tax rate on donations—the lifeblood of any private school—is a good way of ensuring that alumni close their wallets. How will the school pay all those diversity officers?
• Compensate “any Black student or student of color” who participate in antiracism initiatives or has his images used in school publications. Financial favoritism based solely on skin color seems an invitation to a civil-rights lawsuit.
An interesting side note is that the manifesto specifically distinguishes blacks from others “of color,” asserting that “anti-Blackness must be understood as distinct from ‘racism’ writ large.” One wonders when the “of color” community will start bristling at being thrown under the bus.
• Require courses focusing on “Black liberation and challenges to white supremacy” and “yearly anti-racist training” for not only employees but trustees and Parent Association volunteers. It’s hard to imagine parents—who are, after all, the school’s customers—enduring re-education sessions for the privilege of working free at the school. Administrators, faculty and staff would also be expected to “produce individual public anti-racism statements.” Such statements aren’t meant to be simple disavowals of racism, but rather advocacy of this new activist approach.
• “Ensure that there is no correlation between a student’s racial background and their ability to be successful at Dalton.” That means abolishing “tracked courses” by 2023 if blacks aren’t “at parity” with nonblacks by then. “Lowering the bar is not the way to achieve equality, and frankly, it’s insulting,” one Dalton mother, anonymous for fear of repercussions, tells me. She adds that many of her counterparts, suitably woke and having little problem with most of the demands, have decided that this is where they draw the line.
It goes on like this for eight pages. The Dalton endowment is $64 million, so annually it throws off about $2.5 million to the school’s operating budget. That number gets blown through by page three. Setting aside economics, the overall theme is a leveling of outcomes.  It is telling that the manifesto begins with a quote from a Marxist professor named Robin Kelley, someone who professes admiration for Trotsky’s “permanent revolution.” Should the Dalton administration give in to every last demand, there will be a new list tomorrow. The goal posts move quickly in this racket. Which brings us to the pickle in which Dalton finds itself. This fall, Dalton never opened for in-person schooling. It was among the very few private schools in the city that didn’t. Parents have been paying $54,000 tuition for Zoom classes, and they’re unhappy. Headmaster Jim Best recently instructed the teachers to return after the Christmas break, but he gave them plenty of leeway to say no, including if they felt “uncomfortable.”  Despite the school’s motto, “Go Forth Unafraid,” a solid majority demurred. Some black teachers cited racism because they, on average, commute farther and therefore have to endanger themselves on public transportation. Mr. Best stood his ground and tightened the list of acceptable excuses, according to someone inside the process who spoke on condition of anonymity. That insider says teachers angrily responded that Dalton was “showing its whiteness” and “bowing to a right-wing conspiracy.” The fracas over reopening fueled passions over the racial demands...   Dalton has always been at the progressive leading edge, so being labeled “systemically racist” from within is a palpable irony. But it’s been clear since 1789 that revolutions eat their own. The uber-woke, demanding purity, come for the moderately woke first. Dalton’s leaders may be coming to realize this. They have heretofore been happy enough to burnish their woke credentials, but now they seek a comity they cannot achieve."
Weird how evil conservatives oppose demands to teach history accurately

Bari Weiss on Twitter - "Private school will not save you from the CRT-inspired rush to lower educational standards.  We need a critical mass of parents to stand up for meritocracy, reject the CRT hustle, & heed MLK’s clarion call: judge people based on content of their character."
"I hear from parents every single day who are alarmed at what is happening in their children's schools. Ninety-nine percent of them will not say so publicly. Why? Fear of being smeared. Or fear of losing out on Yale for their kids. It's enough. The hour is late. Come out."

This won't stop liberals' continued gaslighting by insisting that CRT isn't taught in schools

California Leftists Try to Cancel Math Class - WSJ - "The framework recommends eight times that teachers use a troubling document, “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction.” This manual claims that teachers addressing students’ mistakes forthrightly is a form of white supremacy. It sets forth indicators of “white supremacy culture in the mathematics classroom,” including a focus on “getting the right answer,” teaching math in a “linear fashion,” requiring students to “show their work” and grading them on demonstrated knowledge of the subject matter. “The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false,” the manual explains. “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuates ‘objectivity.’ ” Apparently, that’s also racist. The framework itself rejects preparing students to take Algebra I in eighth grade, a goal reformers have sought since the 1990s. Students in Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan master introductory algebra in eighth grade or even earlier. At one time, California took the goal seriously and made immense progress. California Department of Education data show that while only 16% of students took algebra by eighth grade in 1999, by 2013, 67%—four times as many—were doing so. Success rates, meaning the percentage of students scoring “proficient” or above, kept rising even as enrollment increased dramatically. The biggest beneficiaries were ethnic minority and low-income students. While student success tripled overall, African-American students’ success rate jumped by a factor of five, and Latinos’ and low-income students’ by a factor of six...  The framework explicitly rejects “ideas of natural gifts and talents.” That some are gifted in math implies some others aren’t, and this is “inequitable.” The framework’s authors also fear that those designated “gifted” may have their fragile egos hurt if they later lose that designation. So it writes an obituary for gifted-and-talented programs, which would hobble the rise of many talented children in California. The framework rejects ability grouping, also called tracking, even though studies show that students do better when grouped with others who are progressing in their studies at the same pace. We have known for years, including from a 2009 Fordham Institute study of Massachusetts middle schools, that schools with more tracks have significantly more math students at advanced levels and fewer failing students.  The proposal’s agenda becomes clear when it says math should be taught so it can be used for “social justice.” It extols a fictional teacher who uses class to develop her students’ “sociopolitical consciousness.” Math, it says, is a tool to “change the world.” Teachers are supposed to adopt a “culturally relevant pedagogy,” which includes “the ability to identify, analyze and solve real-world problems, especially those that result in societal inequalities.” Under this pedagogy, “students must develop a critical consciousness through which they challenge the status quo of the current social order.” Don’t think that kindergarten is too early for such indoctrination: “Teachers can take a justice-oriented perspective at any grade level, K-12,” the curriculum revisionists write. Students could be taught fractions in the distracting process of learning the math of organizing a protest march. This program is quite a comedown for math, from an objective academic discipline to a tool for political activism. Society will be harmed: With fewer people who know math well, how are we going to build bridges, launch rockets or advance technologically? Students will pay the heaviest price—and not only in California. As we’ve seen before, what starts in California doesn’t stop here."
And then poor performance can be blamed on "racism" and be cited as proof that they need even more CRT

Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ on Twitter - "SCOOP: A Philadelphia elementary school forced fifth-grade students to celebrate "black communism" and simulate a Black Power rally to "free Angela Davis" from prison. I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents and photographs from the school. Here's the story. 🧵... The teachers' union openly demands that the United States overthrow the “racist structure of capitalism,” provide “reparations for Black and Indigenous people,” and “uproot white supremacy and plant the seeds for a new world.” The gap between rhetoric and reality is almost beyond comprehension: the ten-year-olds marching for “black communism” can barely read and write. Rather than come to terms with this failure, educators have shifted the blame to “systemic racism” and promises of “revolution.” This should be a crime. The School District of Philadelphia has 18,000 employees and a $3.4 billion annual budget—and fails, year after year, to teach basic literacy. Educators promise to "plant the seeds for a new world," but condemn their students to illiteracy and failure"

Ex-Space Force commander: DOD videos claimed white people 'evil' - "A recently relieved Space Force commander claimed Monday night that the Pentagon sent servicemembers a video that claimed that America and white people were “evil.”  Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier told Fox News’ “Hannity” that the videos “were sent out to every base [and] servicemember” and “we were asked to watch [them] in preparation for our extremism down days and discussions on race.”  Those videos, Lohmeier added, “taught that the country was evil, that it was founded in 1619 and not 1776, and that whites are inherently evil.”...   In the book, Lohmeier claimed a “neo-Marxist agenda” had infiltrated the Pentagon and warned on the podcast in a comment directed at Austin that “this agenda, it will divide us, it will not unify us.”"

Can Chloé Valdary Sell Skeptics on DEI? - The Atlantic - "The diversity, equity, and inclusion industry is booming as corporations, government agencies, high schools, colleges, and nonprofit organizations clamor for its services. Advocates insist that formal instruction in anti-racism yields more inclusive, equitable institutions. Skeptics object to what they characterize as coerced indoctrination in esoteric theories, or charge that prominent consultants like Robin DiAngelo, author of the best-selling White Fragility, traffic in false and divisive racial stereotypes. Still others cite studies finding that diversity training sessions are actually counterproductive. Valdary is unusual because she shares many critiques of the multibillion-dollar “DEI industrial complex,” as sardonic observers call it, even as she argues that her framework avoids the flaws of her competitors’. “We teach love and compassion,” her website insists. “Let us train your team.” What’s more, Valdary pledges, “We do not dehumanize, stereotype, or caricature anyone who seeks our services.”... Three principles guide all of the coursework her company offers:
Treat people like human beings, not political abstractions.
Criticize to uplift and empower, never to tear down, never to destroy.
Root everything you do in love and compassion...
After studying various documents that circulate in diversity, equity, and inclusion circles on the “woke” left, she noticed that they define equitable workplaces as those that value things like interdependence and collaboration. If you boil much of it down, she suggested, activists are urging a more communal work life, where employees are seen as humans with worth and emotions, such that communication and collaboration are important to thriving. Valdary believes that “woke” approaches to DEI incorporate “racecraft,” which is distorting and counterproductive. But she cheers attempts to create workplaces that reduce alienation and isolation.  “Here’s the bridge,” she continued. On the right, a defining feature of communities that voted for Trump at the highest rates was their alienation. She cited Tim Carney’s carefully reported book Alienated America, in which he shows that Trump was more popular in places where fewer traditional connections existed among citizens. ”These were communities where the civic life and civic institutions in the community evaporated,” Valdary wrote. “Churches were shuttered; communal life dithered …  It was precisely the absence of a shared sense of belonging and communal life that led to an increase in deaths of despair, opioid addictions, aimlessness, and the like.” In this respect, folks on the “woke” left and the “reactionary” right want the same things, Valdary observed. “Alienation is a massive culprit re our societal woes … Groups who are fighting against it can only see how it affects *their in group* but not their adversary.”"
The fact that this is so rare suggests that the diversity hustle is aimed at perpetuating the problem

An LA school is segregating families by race for Woke "dialogue sessions." What's next, busing, drinking fountains, and bathrooms? - "Brentwood School costs $38,000 to attend each year. The Woke administration and faculty of the school, however, feel it's their job (as largely rich white people) to end racism by separating everyone based on ethnicity and using Marxist ideology to pit racial groups against each other. Remember, white Woke people can use Critical Race Theory to make racism all about themselves. And then subsequently speak on behalf of other ethnicities because of their Woke status"

California Is Cleansing Jews From History - Tablet Magazine - "when the first draft of the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) was released, Kaplan couldn’t believe what she was reading. In one sample lesson, she saw that a list of historic U.S. social movements—ones like Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, Criminal Justice Reform—also included the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement for Palestine (BDS), described as a “global social movement that currently aims to establish freedom for Palestinians living under apartheid conditions.” Kaplan wondered why a foreign movement, whose target was another country, would be mischaracterized as a domestic social movement, and she was shocked that in a curriculum that would be taught to millions of students, BDS’s primary goal—the elimination of Israel—was not mentioned. Kaplan also saw that the 1948 Israel War of Independence was only referred to as the “Nakba”—“catastrophe” in Arabic—and Arabic verses included in the sample lessons were insulting and provocative to Jews. Kaplan, 53, a Bay Area mother of two grown children who describes herself as a lifelong Democrat, was further surprised to discover that a list of 154 influential people of color did not include Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, or Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, though it included many violent revolutionaries. There was even a flattering description of Pol Pot, the communist leader of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge, who was responsible for the murder of a quarter of the Cambodian population during the 1970s. Kaplan began calling friends. “Have you read this?” she asked, urging them to plow through the 600-page document. The language was bewildering. “Ethnic Studies is about people whose cultures, hxrstories, and social positionalities are forever changing and evolving. Thus, Ethnic Studies also examines borders, borderlands, mixtures, hybridities, nepantlas, double consciousness, and reconfigured articulations. …” This was the telltale jargon of critical race theory, a radical doctrine that has swept through academic disciplines during the last few decades. The new curriculum, which will eventually be promulgated throughout the California school system of 6 million children, would “critique empire and its relationship to white supremacy, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism … and other forms of power and oppression,” according to the proposal. It would “build new possibilities for post-imperial life that promotes collective narratives of transformative resistance.”  Capitalism was classified as a form of “power and oppression,” and although “classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and transphobia” were also listed as forms of oppression, anti-Semitism was not. Jewish Americans were not even mentioned as a minority group... it was a crude pastiche of idiosyncratic neo-Marxism that advocated the end of capitalism and divided the world into a simple polarity of victims and oppressors. The victims, according to this schema, included four groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, and Native Americans... since California has the largest school system in the country, any curriculum it adopts will be exported to the rest of the country.  As a refugee from the Soviet Union, she understood the challenge intimately. “The reason I’m doing this—full time and not sleeping” she said, is that “this curriculum is pervasive and all-inclusive. It creates a means of understanding the world that does not allow questioning. And it’s a view that actively invites anti-Zionism into the classroom. It requires it. This is the greatest threat facing American Jews today.” Kaplan wasn’t the only one upset about the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. Clarence Jones, former legal counsel and speechwriter for Martin Luther King Jr., in a letter he wrote to Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s Instructional Quality Commission, called the ESMC a “perversion of history” for providing material that refers to non-violent Black leaders as “passive” and “docile.” Jones, who is co-founder of the University of San Francisco Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice, decried the “glorification” of violence and Black nationalism as “role models for the students,” and rejected the curriculum as “morally indecent and deeply offensive.” The unassailably liberal LA Times editorial board weighed in, criticizing the offering as “an impenetrable mélange of academic jargon and politically correct pronouncements” that served as an “exercise in groupthink, designed to proselytize and inculcate more than to inform and open minds.” It warned it was “in bad need of an overhaul.”  A group of Asian Americans urged the state to develop a program that would “inspire ethnic pride in all students and inspire them to work together, rather than against one another,” while Hindu, Korean, Armenian, and Sikh groups complained of being left out as did several Jewish groups. The California Legislative Jewish caucus published a letter saying the ESMC “effectively erases the American Jewish experience.” Several émigrés from the former Soviet Union found the curriculum so traumatizing they couldn’t read it through. Three hundred signed a letter to Gov. Newsom and other state agencies saying: “We escaped a Marxist-socialist system and its associated tyranny and oppression. Never could we have imagined that, decades later, the same ideology and concepts that we escaped, would show up in, of all places ... the California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum.”  They wrote of their shock at seeing Marxist “code-words” in the text, such as urging students to fight for a “truer democracy,” which Marx used to refer to the abolition of private property. They also noted other terms that look innocuous or even enlightened to the uninitiated, such as “transformative resistance,” “radical healing,” “critical hope,” have specific meanings in critical race theory, which the ESMC explicitly directs teachers to use as the key theoretical framework for teaching ethnic studies. Critical race theory in education, writes Daniel Solorzano, a scholar cited in the ESMC, “challenges the traditional claims of the educational system such as objectivity, meritocracy, color-blindness, race neutrality, and equal opportunity.” Critical race theorists argue that these traditional claims act as a camouflage for the self-interest, power, and privilege of dominant groups in U.S. society.  CRT is not just an educational pedagogy that seeks to overturn academics as we know it, but it is also a guide for activism “animated by the spirit of the decolonial, antiracist, and other global liberationist movements.”... George Murray, who also served as the minister of education for the Black Panther Party, declared the U.S. Constitution was a “lie” and the American flag was a “piece of toilet paper” deserving to be flushed. He also attacked Jewish people as “exploiters of the Negroes in America and South Africa” and called for “victory to the Arab people” over Israel.  Many of the 18 people chosen by the State Board of Education’s Instructional Quality Committee to create the ESMC hail from San Francisco State’s School of Ethnic Studies, and most are adherents of the radical critical ethnic studies movement who refer to themselves as scholar-activists.  Kaplan reports that State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond admitted in a 2020 meeting with Jewish groups that there were problems with the creation of this group that allowed it to be politicized, and we have put systems in place to make sure they do not recur.  Nevertheless, in 2020, Gov. Newsom signed into law AB 1460, which requires that every student in the Cal State system—the largest four-year public university system in the country, of which San Francisco State is a part—take a three-unit course in ethnic studies. The governor’s decision defied the recommendations of the university’s own chancellor, members of the university’s board of trustees, and the university’s academic senate, all of whom opposed the bill, objecting to the government’s unprecedented intrusion into the university’s curriculum... the city of Seattle has already created a proposed framework for implementing ethnic studies throughout its K-12 curriculum. Math teachers will ask the following questions: “identify how math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color,” “analyze the ways in which ancient mathematical knowledge has been appropriated by Western culture,” “how important is it to be right?” and “Who gets to say if an answer is right?” It appears educational leaders are all for this. The president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Robert Q. Berry III, told Education Week: “What they’re doing follows the line of work we hope we can move forward as we think about the history of math and who contributes to that, and also about deepening students’ connection with identity and agency.”  This, despite the fact that students in the United States already perform poorly in math... One of the selling points for ethnic studies is that it would help California’s students do better in school overall... Almost every article touting the ESMC makes reference to a single paper that showed some improvement in at-risk students who took an ethnic studies class... Dee cautioned that his study was small and its results not easily scalable. He explained that the teachers who offered the classes had spent “years developing them and getting them right” with the help of outside experts. “This kind of pedagogy requires teacher skills of a high order,” he said. He is not sure the ESMC, a huge statewide top-down project, is focused on providing the kind of sensitive, close teaching that produced the positive results.  He is critical of the ESMC’s chaotic rollout, which he characterized as a “hot mess.”... Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, director of AMCHA Initiative, which fights campus anti-Semitism, points out that all 13 founding members of the Critical Ethnic Studies Association (CESA) are BDS activists... of even greater concern to Jews, she believes, is the singling out of Jewish students as enjoying racial privilege... To placate critics, the third version has added lessons about Korean Americans, Armenian Americans, and Sikhs. Two lessons have been offered about Jews. One, following crude CRT dogma, teaches that Mizrahi Jews coming to the United States from Arab lands were mistreated by “white” Ashkenazim. The other suggests that Jews of European descent have white privilege.  The Jewish Journal points out that Jews are the only group in the curriculum for whom the term “privilege” is used. And this privilege is not earned by way of talent, or educational and professional attainment, but rather trickery. The ESMC, echoing Nazi propaganda about Jews as impostors and appropriators hiding in plain sight, points out that American Jews often change their names (“this practice of name-changing continues to the present day”) to change their rank in the social hierarchy... “I’m a progressive Democrat and have been for my entire life, and I come from a family of Democrats,” she said. “I don’t understand how someone who claims to be progressive can say they are against Israel. Israel is one of the most successful countries in terms of the indigenous rights movement. They have reclaimed a culture that was decimated and denied, reclaimed their religion, their peoplehood, and language in their traditional indigenous land. This is something that progressive people all around the world should hold up as an example, not demonize.”"
To liberals "teaching history" means imposing a radical leftist agenda on children
So much for CRT not being taught in schools

Ohio private school expels students because their MOMS launched campaign against woke curriculum - "Columbus Academy sent a letter to parents Andrea Gross and Amy Gonzalez informing them that their children will not be reenrolled at the school, where tuition fees cost up to $30,000 a year."
They can't afford to let the truth get out

Asian-Americans beginning to figure out that the left hates them. - "Democrats in general, and the leftists who drive the party today in particular, have spent years cultivating the narrative that America is a white supremacist country oppressing minorities and making it impossible for them to succeed. Unfortunately, Asian-Americans are really bad at being oppressed and not succeeding.  In fact, their success is kind of an embarrassment. I mean, come on guys, what about all the microaggressions?!  All this success can wreak havoc with the stats.  This happened last November when a school district in Washington State was having trouble demonstrating how very racist they were because Asian-Americans were scoring higher than "people of color" are supposed to in a white supremacist country, even exceeding the scores of the supposed white supremacists at the top of the supposed racial tyranny.  Nobody likes the guy who messes up the curve, kid. Nobody. To fix this obvious error, they approached it as any statistician seeking impartiality and social justice would and just combined the scores of Asian-Americans with those of white students thus creating the desired amount of oppression... Asian-Americans' relentless academic success has even forced Ivy League universities to artificially reduce their admittance... The appeals court eventually ruled that the schools don't discriminate against Asians, instead, they are trying to create a diverse campus by discriminating against Asians.  But don't let that confuse you, it's not "racial profiling," because we're going to just ignore that right now... Asian-Americans also appear to be a bit perturbed that while the left is only too eager to rise to their defense when it appears they can use the attacks on them against their political opponents, they seem decidedly less eager when it's their political allies doing the attacking...  the Chinese American Citizen Alliance Greater New York (CACAGNY) took direct aim at the ideology behind all this, and pulled exactly zero punches, saying:      Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a hateful, divisive, manipulative fraud."
This won't stop naive Asian liberals from promoting policies that go against their interests. But of course the only people who get mocked for being morons for hurting their own interests are conservative voters

Leftists Are Pushing Asian Americans Out Of The Democratic Party - "A recent spike in Asian hate crimes has led to leftist and corporate media that deliberately refuse to talk about the perpetrators and their motives. They insinuate the hate crimes are due to either structural imbalances in society or a direct result of white supremacy rhetoric. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bizarrely blamed the rise in attacks on Asians on former President Trump. The New York Times also attributed it to Trump’s alleged xenophobia with the term “Chinese virus.” NBC News even went further, pondering whether violence against Asians should really be considered a hate crime, given that Asians are privileged and it might hamper the fight against “systemic racism.” Outlets refuse to acknowledge who the crimes (including murder, gang rape, and assault) are committed by or fear of a backlash from activist groups. As with most attacks on Jews in New York city, most of the perpetrators are black. Meanwhile, real “systemic racism,” as in racism perpetuated in a systemic way by figures in authority specifically targeted at any minority race, is happening against Asians. America’s oldest and top medical journal recently wrote that Asian Americans must recognize their position of privilege now. This idea is a direct result of the perpetuation of critical race theory, where success, hard work, and other conservative values are considered “white supremacy.”... A stable family structure is important for a disciplined life, which in turn is important to developing an instinct for success. This is not racial. It is simply the kind of character and values that help people succeed.  The evidence on this is overwhelming and cross-racial. Anyone who adopts these values has a better chance to succeed in life. Broken families and fatherlessness are directly correlated with lack of academic and career success, so much so that it forms a pattern too large to ignore.  But they are ignored, as these are taboo to mention in leftist circles. Hollywood has perpetuated a myth that humans cannot be culturally superior or inferior. Consider the Hollywood telling of origin stories that feature evil characters who reinforce the central leftist myth that all evil results from early traumas, social oppression, or toxic ideologies, and not from any evolutionary or cultural influences. According to modern philosophy, one must always be a victim of circumstances or structural inequality. Naturally, when Asian Americans shatter that myth through sheer hard work, they also bust the narrative of white supremacy and structural racism. There are then only two weapons leftists see: Either to offset that success with affirmative action, which actively harms anyone intelligent, or to call successful Asian Americans a cog in the machine of “white supremacy.”   Why is there no collective fight against this? John Yoo and Avik Roy wrote in 2019 that the natural home of Asian-Americans is in the GOP. They are a natural match with conservatism, from work ethic to sexual politics to academic success. Yet it appears Republican leadership has squandered that opportunity...   The first thing Asian-Americans need to do is have something akin to Mumsnet in Britain, the nascent forum that formed the backbone of middle-class British mothers to organize against left-wing politics, to write petitions, organize mass calls, and coordinate movements, to pressure universities, schools, and local politicians.  Second, they need to form local committees and groups not just for physical safety, but also to form a pressure bloc in local politics. Third, they need to stand for elections, in a political party that supports hard work and success.  Asian Americans and Indian Americans are mostly middle class, the class that gives the most back to society while getting the least in return. Their cultural instinct is to put their heads down to work hard and save money and have a family and not make much of a fuss. But those days are coming to an end.   Asian Americans need to urgently understand that a society where success, discipline, ambition, and other conservative values are in considered traits of “white supremacy,” and affirmative action is implemented to offset them, is not a society where they can ever thrive, succeed, or even survive."

Chinese-American Parents Condemn Critical Race Theory - "Some of CRT’s hate speeches against Asians are obvious: Too many Asians and Stuyvesant doesn’t look like the City need no explanation. They can also be subtle. For example: Stuyvesant is not diverse. Since when is it not diverse for a school to have dozens of languages spoken at home, all major world faiths practiced, most cultural experiences inherited, from ancient civilization-building to rise and fall of empires, to slavery, colonization, revolution, and diaspora?  Even if CRT dismisses all this and reduces everything to just looks — do all Asians look alike to them?  Another trend that should concern us is CRT’s coming collision with immigrants. Black militancy was always receptive to the view that immigrants steal jobs and resources from Blacks, but the bigger irritant is immigrant values. Arriving with little more than their human capital, immigrants are grateful to be here, work hard and educate their children hard, and believe in the American dream under the Constitutional guarantee of equal rights. Most infuriating for CRT is that immigrants, including Blacks from West Africa and the Caribbean, are making real progress. When CRT eventually clashes with immigrants, we will find CRT’s racism and hate against us ratcheted up another notch."

Young Americans Against Socialism - Posts | Facebook - "Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed a new law requiring students to learn the “evils of communism.” The new law will require Florida public schools to teach the horrors of communism, as well as beef up the state’s civics courses."
I'm sure all those who claim CRT is just "teaching history" will be very upset about actual history being taught

Facebook - "This is fascinating and good news. A Critical Race Theorist is suing to have her racial beliefs protected as a religious belief. In America, at least, that sword will cut both ways and harder to their disadvantage. Marxian Theories are religions. It is very much not to American Marxists' advantage to be designated as a religion here (whatever stripe of Marxian Theory, including CRT). They'd lose all leverage over public institutions and could not constitutionally set up the state apparatus they are seeking. I don't know if British law is different, and therefore I don't know if this selfish little narcissistic racist has committed a grave error against her cause. I'm very happy to help any judge or court understand in full detail how religious Marxian Theories (including CRT) are!"

Academic who was sacked after calling right-wing commentator a 'house n***o' sues for discrimination - "An academic who was sacked after calling a Right-wing commentator a 'house n***o' is suing the university which cut ties with her for discrimination against her belief in critical race theory and black radicalism. Aysha Khanom lost her advisory role with Leeds Beckett University after her organisation The Race Trust, a charity offering 'racial literacy' training to schools, made an incendiary tweet about Calvin Robinson.  She is now suing the university, claiming that her dismissal discriminated against her political beliefs. The case could see black radicalism - an academic movement which argues race is a social construct used to oppress minorities - made into a protected belief system, like religious belief. Ms Khanom is being supported by Professor Kehinde Andrews, who branded Churchill a 'white supremacist', arguing the term 'house n***o' is not a 'racial slur' but a 'concept that come out of struggles for racial justice'... Mr Robinson, who has written as a commentator for the Daily Mail, had described on an episode of the BBC's The Big Question that evening the abuse that he had received for being both black and Right-wing.  He had said: 'For example I have been called Bounty, Uncle Tom, house n***o for not having the right opinion.' The Race Trust account then responded to a critic of its remarks on Twitter, calling them a 'coconut'... Ms Khanom worked for Leeds Beckett University on an advisory basis through its 'Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality' but it cut ties with her and condemned 'the use of racist language'. On an online fundraising page created to raise £5,000 to cover her legal costs, Ms Khanom claimed she was the victim of a 'network of alt-Right activists'... 'Fundamentally, this is an important issue of freedom of speech.'  Ms Khanom said the tweets were not sent by her, adding: 'No academic should find their contract terminated so publicly in the absence of a fair and thorough investigation.'    Emilie Cole, a co-founding partner of Cole Khan solicitors, which is representing Ms Khanom, told the Guardian: 'Immediately publishing her termination on Twitter and publicly condemning her as racist was a gross abuse of power and sets a dangerous precedent.  ' Ms Khanom's case is of significant importance for everyone who stands for academic freedom, freedom of speech and equality.'"
"The alt-right forced me to be racist"
So much for "accountability culture"
Of course this won't stop the left trying to get people they disagree with fired. It's only "freedom of speech" when the left does it

Lowering expectations in education is just a form of soft bigotry - "In the first semester of the 2019-20 school year, the San Diego Unified school district board discovered that 20% of black students had received a D or F grade. In comparison, 7% of white students earned the same failing marks. School officials decided that the 13% racial disparity was a function of systemic racism, requiring an “honest reckoning as a school district.”  In October, that “reckoning” led the San Diego board to vote unanimously to “interrupt these discriminatory grading practices.” Rather than attempt to replicate the factors empowering the 80% of black students who achieved passing grades, the board’s first action to “be an anti-racist school district” was to dumb down the grading system for all. Under the new protocols, all 106,000 San Diego students are no longer required to hand in their homework on time. Moreover, teachers are now prohibited from factoring a student’s classroom behavior when formulating an academic grade... Read the mission statement of virtually any educational organization, and you will likely find earnest language seeking to attain “equity” by “closing the racial achievement gap.” Instead of seeking educational excellence for all, school reformers have become fixated on erasing disparities, most frequently the underperformance of black children relative to their white classmates. The problem of course with this color-bound thinking is that achieving “equity” only allows a black student to reach a average white peer’s potential, not his or her own — maybe higher — potential... These educators are reinforcing the flawed belief that every racial disparity must be due to white supremacy and systemic racism, regardless of other factors like declines in stable families or lack of school choice, which may play a far more powerful role in impeding the development of children of all races. The resulting “anti-racist” policies are becoming the unintended, modern day version of the soft bigotry of low expectations."
This is brilliant. The genius of this is they'll do even worse, then you can blame racism and call for even more measures and entrench rent seeking permanently

Christina Sommers on Twitter - "Private school will not save you from the CRT-inspired rush to lower educational standards.  We need a critical mass of parents to stand up for meritocracy, reject the CRT hustle, & heed MLK’s clarion call: judge people based on content of their character"
"I discovered this the hard way. Private schools are more woke than public schools because wokeness is a top-down phenomenon of elite status signaling."

"I feel like my city's school board (which still refuses to open schools) is trying to tell me something...what could it be?"

WATCH: Black woman slams Ohio school board for critical race theory indoctrination of students - "A black woman spoke up at a School Board meeting in Beachwood, Ohio, to take issue with the board's use of critical race and gender theory to divide families, pit students against their parents, and create a racist environment where none had existed before."If a lot more of the residents knew of the mess you've made of this school system via the curriculum as policy you would all probably lose your position in the district"... many school districts in Ohio "are now hiding their curriculum from its residents because they're teaching students to become bigots toward their peers, adults, and law enforcement. Many school districts within this congressional district [Ohio-11] are on board for allocating funding and teaching young students the how-to about changing your gender, child pornography, and pedophilia, and where to find those websites, what sex toys to purchase, and how to use that which is purchased."... "in the document for critical race theory, the stated goal is to make children activists in their own home. What does that mean?"... "Black kids at Beachwood Schools, when they were growing up, all these decades, until you all came along: They didn't look at race or gender. Very successful black people. Very successful."But what did you do? You decided that instead of looking at Beachwood data, you decided to put us up in with George Floyd and everybody else who got killed that had nothing to do with Beachwood. Nothing! So what do you do? You put in stuff like critical race theory, and all this other garbage that first of all is none of your business—""

Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ on Twitter - "The great crime of critical race theory is that it burnishes the social status of elites, but provides nothing for the poor. In fact, it seeks to demolish the very social institutions that provide a path out of poverty—work, family, faith—for people of all racial backgrounds."

Facebook - "High School Teacher in Colorado openly admitting he uses Critical Race Theory in everything he teaches and will ignore any law that restricts his ability to indoctrinate students. Needs to be relieved of the position he's blatantly abusing. School boards that don't remove activists posing as teachers like this are failing the communities they serve and should be recalled or disbanded. Teachers unions that protect teachers like this should also be destroyed."
Of course, it's a conservative myth that teachers are trying to indoctrinate students

Aurora teacher pledges to teach critical race theory, like it or not - "“Virtually all school districts insist they are not teaching critical race theory,” NBC News reports.  That comes as news to the residents of Aurora, considering high school teacher Bryan Lindstrom made it pretty clear this week he’s doing everything he can to keep critical race theory in the classroom.
'I’m going on record now: At the end of the day it’s just my students and me in our classroom and we will be discussing race, class and gender in my history classes, regardless of what laws and policies people want to pass. Critical race theory is a component of everything I do'
Lindstrom is a well known socialist activist who once ran for city council, and teaches in Aurora Public Schools. Lindstrom’s pledge to continue teaching racism in his classroom regardless of school district policy is especially troubling...
'Common ground doesn’t mean meeting in the middle.The only common ground that exists is what exists in leftist beliefs. Because conservative “common ground” leaves out people who are poor, BIPOC, Queer, with disabilities, etc. But OUR common ground includes the liberation for all'"

PragerU - Posts | Facebook - "READ THIS LETTER from a high school student about 👉the effects of Critical Race Theory on him👈 and fellow students, written to an English teacher who resigned after the school began injecting CRT into the school...
Namely, my eighth grade English teacher taught us for the first two weeks about pretty much how awful white men are. For two weeks, I did not speak a single word in her class. My fellow white male classmates left the classroom every time feeling the same way. For lack of a better word, those teachings made me feel like horse shit, like worthless scum undeserving of living. Later during that year, in my history class, my white classmates were constantly using the pronoun “we” when talking about slavery. Eventually, I had to raise my hand and remind them: that “we” were not and are not a part of these despicable acts. Most of our parents were refugees from foreign countries, whose ancestors were also oppressed and persecuted. This year, I have battled with countless generalizing and oppression towards white men. There are girls, whom I am friends with, that genuinely believe that all men are misogynistic. I see movements on social media like #KAM which stands for “Kill all men”; people don’t realize how strongly that affects boys in an extremely negative way. Even now, I am struggling and frightened to fully express my opinion to my girlfriend, who believes that most white men are oppressive beings"

Meme - "There's an easy way to see if Critical Race Theory is racist or not. Take the word White out of every sentence and replace it with the word Black. If it suddenly feels racist then CRT was racist from the start."

School District Tells Principals To Create Fake Curriculum To Send Parents After Complaints Of Indoctrination - "Faced with complaints from parents about the indoctrination of children, an official in Rockwood School District, Missouri, instructed teachers to create two sets of curriculum: a false one to share with parents, and then the real set of curriculum, focused on topics like activism and privilege... The problem was that, for the first time, parents could see what teachers were telling their children thanks to virtual learning, where assignments were visible for at-home learners in a tool called Canvas."
What do they have to hide?

"I mean, how insecure are you, White Hollywood,

in asexual supporting roles,
never getting the girls.
I mean, I get it, you don’t need Viagra,
you can suck your own dick because you get a colonized erection
every single time you cast Asian women

See, you tell society, white person saves me
by pushing me out of harm’s way.""

Teacher at posh NJ prep school quits over critical race theory - "An English teacher has resigned from a top New Jersey prep school that is using critical race theory to create a “hostile culture of conformity and fear” — causing white and male students to believe they are “oppressors,” she said.  Dana Stangel-Plowe accused the Dwight-Englewood School in Bergen County of forcing students and faculty to embrace a single set of beliefs, choking off free speech in the process.  “The school’s ideology requires students to see themselves not as individuals, but as representatives of a group, forcing them to adopt the status of privilege or victimhood”... “As a result, students arrive in my classroom accepting this theory as fact: People born with less melanin in their skin are oppressors, and people born with more melanin in their skin are oppressed. Men are oppressors, women are oppressed, and so on”... “This is the dominant and divisive ideology that is guiding our adolescent students.”... Stangel-Plowe alleged that on two occasions in 2017 and 2018, Head of School Rodney De Jarnett “told the entire faculty that he would fire us all if he could so that he could replace us all with people of color.”  In 2019, the educator said, she expressed concern about “negative experiences among hostile and doctrinaire colleagues” — but said her complaints fell on deaf ears.  As a result of the school’s “anti-racist” teachings, she said, her students have become obsessed with power structures and group identity. “This fixation has stunted their ability to observe and engage with the full fabric of human experience in our literature,” Stangel-Plowe wrote in her letter.  Students “have become rigid and closed-minded, unable or unwilling to consider alternative perspectives.”  She added: “In our school, the opportunity to hear competing ideas is practically non-existent.”"
