East Side Community School in New York City shows that racism is ok as long as the discrimination is toward white families. The Daily Wire reports that “A New York City public school sent out a graphic to parents encouraging them to become “white traitors” and “white abolitionists.”
The graphic released via Twitter as part of a scoop by journalist Christopher F. Rufo is apart of the school’s “new language of public education.” Rufo has made it his mission to highlight the harmful effects of criminal race theory and its prevalence in schools and businesses.
The emerging report says that “the principal of East Side Community School in New York sent white parent this “tool for action,” which tells them they must become “white traitors” and then advocate for full ‘white abolition.”
The graphic said that there are “8 White Identities” in what that author and Northwestern University professor, Barnor Hesse, calls a “regime of whiteness.” Hesse said that “it’s about time we build an ethnography of whiteness since white people have been the ones writing about and governing Others.”
The “8 White Identities” are:
“1. White Supremacist: Clearly marked white society that preserves, names and values white superiority.”
2. White Voyeurism: Wouldn’t challenge a white supremacist; desires non-whiteness because it’s interesting, pleasurable; seeks to control the consumption and appropriation of non-whiteness; fascination with culture (ex: consuming Black culture without the burden of Blackness)
3. White Privilege: May critique supremacy, but a deep investment in questions of fairness/equality under the normalization of whiteness and the white rule; sworn goal of ‘diversity’
4. White Benefit: Sympathetic to a set of issues but only privately; won’t speak/act in solidarity publicly because benefitting through whiteness in public (some POC are in this category as well)
Do you think terms like “white privilege” and “white abolitionist” are racist?

5. White Confessional: Some exposure of whiteness takes place, but as a way of being accountable to POC after: seek validation from POC
6. White Critical: Take on board critiques of whiteness and invest in exposing/marking the white regime; refuses to be complicit with the regime; whiteness speaking back to whiteness
7. White Traitor: Actively refuses complicity; names what’s going on; intention is to subvert white authority and tell the truth at whatever cost; need them to dismantle institutions
8. White Abolitionist: Changing institutions, dismantling whiteness, and not allowing whiteness to reassert itself”

The idea is to promote white parents to believe that if you are white, you are racist. It’s an idea already being taught to white elementary students. I would be interested in a study that showed if there is a correlation between the uptick in suicides among white elementary-age students and their newfound knowledge that they were born as hate-filled racists.
Biden is putting Miguel Cardona and Cindy Marten in charge of our children’s education on a national level. Cardona supports critical race theory and disapproves of school choice, although not as strongly as Biden. Cindy Marten is the San Diego School Superintendent who promoted training white teachers that they “spirit murdered” black and brown students.
With these two possibly heading decision-makers in public education, parents should be taking a hard look at private schools or home schools as a real option. Public schools embrace the rhetoric – like teaching white children that they were born with hate because of the color of their skin – and push away the reality that racism in America is a for-profit business and children’s education is their new market.
Christopher Rufo blames “the gap between rhetoric and reality” for the abundance of these policies and the deterioration of our education system as a result. He said, “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.”
