‘Anti-Racist’ Education Set To Become Requirement for Admission to California Colleges

Breakthrough! A High School Course Will Reduce Racism!

Gavin Newsom

A post appeared on American Greatness www.amgreatness.com reporting that the University of California (UC) system is set to implement new guidelines that will force all potential applicants to first take an ethnic studies or “anti-racist” course in high school prior to applying. The University will make ‘Anti-Racist’ Education a Prerequisite for Admission.

The content of the anticipated courses seems tendentious. “As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “the UC Academic Senate met on March 30th to consider new “course content guidelines” relating to ethnic studies classes that any future students would first have to take in high school. The guidelines dictate that students first learn about “the impact of systems of power and oppression,” including “empire,” “white supremacy,” “anti-blackness,” “xenophobia,” and “patriarchy” prior to submitting an application to any of the ten UC campuses throughout the state.”

Efforts to mandate diversity education in California public schools had already been taken up by the state legislature and Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.). In 2020, Newsom vetoed a bill that would have implemented a broad ethnic studies curriculum throughout the state. Newsom eventually signed an updated bill in late 2021 forcing all public high schools to teach ethnic studies courses by 2025.

The new proposal would force private and charter schools to adopt the same requirement for any students seeking acceptance to the UC system, which is considered the most prestigious level of education in the state. The content would instruct on “honoring anti-colonial and liberatory movements that struggle for social justice” and “critique histories of imperialism, dehumanization, and genocide to expose how they are connected to present-day ideologies, systems, and dominant cultures that perpetuate racial violence, white supremacy, and other forms of oppression.”

Despite the overwhelmingly far-left lean of the UC system, an open letter was signed by over 1,200 UC students, alumni, and faculty opposing the new changes, declaring that a radical “activist” wing is seeking to “unleash hatred and bigotry, especially anti-Semitism, into California’s public, charter, and private schools.”

    Any additions to curriculum regarding the banning of God from school? Will there be classes regarding the use by our founding fathers of Judeo-Christian mores and how they have been diluted and eroded over time?

      That should be a course required before the racist race course.

    And the cow jumped over the moon! These people making something out of nothing are starting to make me sick! I retired from a Corporation who’s Headquarters is in Detroit. I worked for this Corp for 34 years before being forced to retire when a tumor in my spinal canal sheath took my ability to walk and control my own faculties. Never, ever we’re qualified people overlooked, not hired or discriminated in any way shape or form based upon race , gender or anything else. Where was I while all the bad they are now pretending happened? There are probably more colored people per capita in Detroit MI than any other City in the US. The insane flakes of the Democrat Party live in a Fantasy world! They are lost.

    Why is it that the teaching of racism is concentrated on white power? From my experiences, racism crosses all color, religion, gender, etc.
    keeping the focus on white power promotes racism against whites. Racism crosses all boundaries – f you are going to do this, DO IT RIGHT!!!!

American Pediatrics to Scrutinize ‘Entire Catalog’ to Eliminate ‘Race-Based’ Medicine

Published

on

The American Academy of Pediatrics is “committing to scrutinizing its ‘entire catalog,’ including guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles” in order to “abandon race-based guidance,” reports the Associated Press.

The AP reports that “for years” pediatricians have followed flawed guidelines “linking race to risks for urinary infections and newborn jaundice.” The Academy announced its new policy Monday, saying it will put all guidance under the microscope to eliminate “race-based” medicine and resulting health disparities.

The Academy says it is purging outdated advice and is committed to scrutinizing its “entire catalog” such as guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles, said Dr. Joseph Wright, lead author of the new policy and chief health equity officer at the University of Maryland’s medical system.

The AP writes the Academy’s decision began before George Floyd was killed in 2020, which intensified doctors’ concerns “that Black youngsters have been undertreated and overlooked” , said Wright.

Specifically, a revision to its newborn jaundice guidance which currently suggests certain races have higher or lower risks, is planned for this summer, said Wright. “Last year, the academy retired a guideline calculation based on the unproven idea that Black children faced lower risks that white kids for urinary infections” reports the AP. “A review had shown that the strongest risk factors were prior urinary infections and fevers lasting more than 48 hours, not race, Wright said.”

The AP reports:

In recent years, other major doctor groups including the American Medical Association have made similar pledges. They are spurred in part by civil rights and social justice movements, but also by science showing the strong roles that social conditions, genetics and other biological factors play in determining health.

Dr. Valerie Walker, a specialist in newborn care and health equity at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, called the policy “a critical step” toward reducing racial health disparities.”

D.C. Elementary School Gives Children ‘Fistbooks’ to identify ‘racist family members’, identify their own ‘white privilege’

Published

The obsession liberals have for infiltrating the minds of children is increasingly dangerous. A Washington, D.C. public elementary school gave children as young as 4 in Pre-Kindergarten, through 3rd grade, “Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids.”

The book shows white and black drawn characters; the cover is a Black figure holding a sign above the head, as if in a protest, that reads “ARFC Fistbook for kids.” Underneath the drawing reads (It’s a Fight Club. We don’t do “handbooks.”)

The purpose of the book is for children to identify their own racist tendencies, as well as identify “racist members” of their family. “As part of this work, each student has a fist book to help continue the dialogue at school and home,” a letter from the Janney Elementary School Principal Danielle Singh explained.

“We recognize that any time we engage topics such as race and equity, we may experience a variety of emotions. This is a normal part of the learning and growing process. As a school community we want to continue the dialogue with our students and understand this is just the beginning” the letter continued.

“Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids” explains that “white people are a part of a society that benefits them in almost every instance,” and that “it’s as if white people walk around with an invisible force field because they hold all of the power in America.”
“If you are a white person, white privilege is something you were born with and it simply means that your life is not more difficult due to the color of your skin,” the “Fistbook for Kids” explains.

“Put differently, it’s not your fault for having white privilege, but it is your fault if you choose to ignore it.” The “Fistbook for Kids” says anti-racism “isn’t a spectator sport” but requires “being loud, uncomfortable, confrontational and visible to ensure change is made.”

A series of questions in the book asks children, “Where do you see racism in yourself? This requires true soul-searching. Be real with yourself, don’t feel guilt/shame and own it. It’s the first step in becoming an anti-racist.”
