“K-12 schools across the country must urgently profess solidarity with Black Lives Matter, vow to dismantle white supremacy and remake themselves into racism-free zones.
“We need to eradicate white supremacy and heteropatriarchy in all of our institutions.”
“We declare war on the intentional barriers white people have built to harm Black people. We grieve for all of the Black lives taken by white supremacy.”
“Sounds like indoctrination is the key word here.”
“No, it’s an opportunity for engagement. What’s really different now is talking explicitly about whiteness.”
“Parents must be thrilled with the use of words like diversity, equity and inclusivity to group and stereotype human beings by skin color and attribute characteristics to your personality based on skin color, not to mention the anti-white and anti-American messaging.”
“Well, I’m tired of White people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out Black life with no consequences. They gleefully soak in their White-washed history that downplays the holocaust of Indigenous, Native peoples and Africans in the Americas. They happily believe their all-White spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against Black bodies to keep those spaces white.
“All white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism. Racism is perpetuated by silence, and silence is complicity. Being ‘colorblind’ often serves as a pretense to downplay the significance of race, deny the existence of racism, and erase the experience of students of color.”
“Getting back to basics for a minute, a significant percentage of young Americans know nothing about geography, science, half the residents of Detroit can’t read and all you can think of to do about it is to teach people to love their hair and tap into a defeatist philosophy fixated on racial oppression, subjugation, injustice and an inability to control your own destiny.
“Almost every important deed in the last 500 years has been accomplished by white men, much to your chagrin I’m sure, but I don’t see how you can escape teaching it that way. Has any great country or society been founded in that time by anyone other than white males? We’d all still be living in mud huts.”
