Elite K-8 school teaches white students they’re born racist, by Paul Sperry.
An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.
Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.
They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.
Why only white students? Isn’t that racist? Isn’t it racist to treat people differently based on their race? Aren’t racists, bigots, sexists, and people of prejudice only to happy to tell you why they discriminate on the basis of features that no one can change about themselves?
Poor kids. No intellectual defenses or knowledge to fight back.
