Class seeks to 'heal' teachers infected with racism

← return to Water Cooler

Like clockwork, every few months a gaggle of academics come up with a program that could only come from the mind of race-obsessed educators. Now, Fox News reports that the Milwaukee Teacher’s Education Association is offering the “Healing Racism Workshops” to help cure those infected with racism.

A flier for the workshop reads: “[R]acial conditioning permeates the fabric of our inter-personal and inter-group relations, taking little account of laws and statutes, and reaching deep into the hearts and minds of individuals.”

It was just over a week ago that news outlets reported on the Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, which was teaching a class called “American Diversity.” There, students were taught that white skin grants individuals unseen privileges.

Many Americans aren’t familiar with the term “white privilege.” It has been taught by leftist professors for years, perhaps articulated most succinctly in an essay titled “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack,” by Peggy McIntosh. As recently as last year, the University of Minnesota — Duluth used the philosophy to launch an awareness campaign “Unfair: It’s hard to see racism when you’re white.”

Over and over academics present a bleak vision for the world, in which “the system” pits one group against another in perpetual racial warfare. Americans should be cognizant that all these efforts, while are cloaked in the rhetoric of “healing” and “diversity” are in reality rooted in a philosophy that seeks to tear open old wounds.
