Discrimination against whites from primary school to university
White students increasingly feel excluded in schools as a result of social equity.
„Come hang out while we get a chance to get to know each other and build our community as we kick off this school year,” says the flyer an elementary school in California sent out, inviting parents and student to a playdate. The invitation that was received by all the students sparked outrage, as the organizer, the equity and inclusion committee, exclusively invited those who are black, brown, or API, standing for Asian and Pacific Islander.
White children were not invited and deprived of the chance to get to know each other.
The invitation was posted on Reddit by a parent, The Post Millennial writes.
„I don’t know about others, but I’m genuinely upset about what ultimately boils down to a ‘No whites allowed’ playdate,” said the Reddit user.
He added, „I am firmly against racial segregation in any form, and think this is the kind of event that pulls more people AWAY from the cause they are likely trying to promote.”
The Reddit user also appeared to suggest that such events are pushing regular people to become more politically conservative, writing, „I know people who have literally gone full blown conservative/Trumpers because of shit like this.”
Another user noted that the worst part is that these types of events are primarily „fueled by extreme white left of liberal ‘woke’ people who feel they can speak for people of color.”
Racism against whites has emerged not only in elementary schools, but also at universities.
The Faculty of Health Sciences at Western University in Ontario is reminding students they have “important roles to play in helping make Western a safer, proactive space to learn and grow.” As a part of this role, the school formed an “Anti-Racism Task Force” to “dismantle whiteness” and “prevent… other forms of systemic oppression” within its faculty, Rebel News reported.
This is not the only controversial facet of the institution’s extensive diversity, equity, and inclusivity machine. Suggested reading for students regarding the topic of race are titles such as, “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism,” “White Supremacy and Me,” “Decolonizing Antiracism,” and Ibram X. Kendi’s contested “How to Be An Antiracist.”
Western was also in the spotlight recently for a highly controversial course on “microaggressions”.
Attendees were encouraged to identify “locations of oppression” and “privilege” in fictional examples and to “continuously reflect” on the “power and privilege” they possess, as detailed in a thread on X (formerly known as Twitter).
As a part of their effort to combat race-based privilege, the university has dedicated almost $900,000 worth of scholarship money exclusively to black and Indigenous students, as well as developing a number of internship programs specific to black students.
