‘OPPRESSED OR OPPRESSORS’: Nevada mom sues school for forcing bi-racial son to take ‘anti-white’ classes

Students in the class were also tasked with labeling themselves as either “oppressed or oppressors.”

A Nevada mother is suing her son’s school because he was forced to take a class about “anti-white” race theories. 

Gabrielle Clark, the African-American mother of one student attending Democracy Preparatory Academy, filed a lawsuit against the charter school, alleging her son was unable to opt-out of a sociology class involving Critical Race Theory, BizPacReview reports. 

In a Fox & Friends interview Monday, Clark spoke about the federal lawsuit and why it was a necessary step. 

The class, titled “Sociology of Change,” promoted “antiwhite racism to students with some materials discussing internalized privilege and the existence of oppression.” 

Students in the class were also tasked with labeling themselves as either “oppressed or oppressors.” 

William Clark, a biracial student in 12th grade, was required to “make professions about his racial, sexual, gender and religious identities…which were subject to the scrutiny of interrogation and derogatory labeling of students, teachers and school administrators,” court documents show. 

When pressed by Clark’s mother about removing her son from the class, the schools principal – Adam Johnson – informed her it was required and her son would receive a failing grade for opting out, BizPacReview reports. 

Clark told Fox she was outraged by the class being taught in the first place. 

“You can’t do that at a job. You shouldn’t be able to do it at a school. It put a target on my son’s back. If somebody didn’t like what he had to say, then that would have put him in danger. And I think that was a grievous wrong,” she said. 

“He was asked to answer the questions and then the teacher would then scrutinize and label whether or not his particular identities were under the category of oppressor or privileged or oppressed,” she added. 

Clark encouraged other families to reach out to her “because it didn’t just violate my so’s civil rights, they violated all the children’s civil rights by asking those questions.” 

Topics covered included “internalized oppression” and systemic racism, calling for students to “unlearn” some of their beliefs, attitudes and behaviors, as shown in a Twitter thread of some class materials.

    Nobody can choose as to who they were born. We are all in this world together so we should all respect and enjoy our differences. We are very lucky to be in this great country.

    This article is one more of a score of reasons that one must conclude the teachers unions should be defunded.

    OMG. This is outrageous! It sounds and acts like Soviet Russia and the CCP. This is where we are headed everywhere if we let this nonsense continue. It’s an existential threat to American culture and values. Conservatives must get on school boards everywhere and bring some sanity to educating our children. We’ve been complacent too long.

    Piss poor school systems matched only by a piss poor Congress. Get those pending anti-lynching bills sent to the White House and then see how the school systems teach that.
