Recently Seattle Public Schools held a training session for teachers which claimed America is a “race-based white-supremist society.” The “training session” was basically a deranged rant over how evil it is to have white skin. 

The organizers of the presentation have both their preferred pronouns listed, as well as their race. Oh, come on. Next thing you know we are going to have to put our blood type or mother’s maiden name. 

The presentation starts off strong, “the United States was built off the stolen labor of kidnapped and enslaved Black people’s work, which created the profits that created our nation.” Wow. Way to ease us into this.

City Journal summed up the main purpose of the presentation. 

“The central message is that white teachers must recognize that they ‘are assigned considerable power and privilege in our society’ because of their ‘possession of white skin.’ Consequently, to atone for their collective guilt, white teachers must be willing to reject their ‘whiteness’ and become dedicated ‘anti-racist educator[s].’”

This radical presentation is sure to make many feel uncomfortable. The presenters claim this is due to white people’s “lizard-brains,” which makes them afraid they “will have to talk about sensitive issues such as race, racism, classism, sexism, or any kind of ‘ism.’”

I know this is hard to believe, but it gets worse. City Journal has more:

“In the most disturbing portion of the training, the teachers held a discussion about ‘spirit murder,’ which, according to Dr. Bettina Love, is the concept that Americans schools ‘murder the souls of Black children every day through systemic, institutionalized, anti-Black, state-sanctioned violence.’ In the words of Dr. Love, who originated the concept, the education system is ‘built on White supremacy’ and ‘invested in murdering the souls of Black children,’ even in the most ostensibly progressive institutions.”

I’m confused. Is this presentation supposed to train people to be teachers, or is it training teachers to be anarchists? 

If this is what they are telling our teachers, what are teachers telling our kids?
