‘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.

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

Published

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’

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.”
