It seems that a third-grade teacher at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School in Cupertino, CA decided to get 8yo kids to deconstruct their own racial identities. Students were taught that the dominant culture was the following:
“White, middle class, cisgender, educated, able bodied, Christian, English speakers who created and maintained” this culture in order “to hold power and stay in power.”
The documents were leaked, not by someone dripping in white fragility, but an Asian American parent who was disgusted to see kids being taught racism. She rallied other parents at the school to protest to the principal.
The teacher began the lesson on “social identities” during a mathematics class. That gives a whole new meaning to division.
A passage from the assigned text went as follows:
“a white, cisgender man, who is able-bodied, heterosexual, considered handsome and speaks English has more privilege than a Black transgender woman.”
Christopher Rufo, who obtained the leaked documents wrote,
“The irony is that, despite being 94 percent nonwhite, Meyerholz Elementary is one of the most privileged schools in America. The median household income in Cupertino is $172,000, and nearly 80 percent of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher. At the school, where the majority of families are Asian-American, the students have exceptionally high rates of academic achievement and the school consistently ranks in the top 1 percent of all elementary schools statewide. In short, nobody at Meyerholz is oppressed.”
Should the teacher just view the Asian American parents against intersectional politics as inconvenient minorities who believe in meritocracy? According to Rufo, the parents believe that the school board is overpopulated by critical race theory activists.
One wonders under Biden whether these things will proliferate. So much for unity. Let’s get the brainwashing in as early as possible.
Presumably when the handsome sun bleached blonde, blue eyed white 8yo boy is punched in the nose by a minority student, the teacher will explain to him that this is a part of the healing process to account for his white privilege and atone for things he has no control over.
Black is white. Freedom is slavery. War is peace. Got it?
