'Professional Educators' once again screwing kids out of their futures

Or trying very hard do.
The father asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution against his child by Seattle Public Schools. He said the other pieces of the worksheet were equally disturbing. (Take note of that: that he has reason to fear they'd cause harm to his child for revealing what's happening in the class, that's reason enough to get rid of these assholes)

The worksheet labels “objectivity,” “individualism,” and “perfectionism” as white supremacy. If students deny their own racism — or that any of the nine characteristics are legitimately racist — is also white supremacy. Denialism or being overly defensive is a racist example of an “entitlement to name what is an [sic] isn’t racism and that those with power have a right to be shielded from the stresses of antiracist work.”

World Literature and Composition students were told that “Worship of the Written Word” is white supremacy because it is “an erasure of the wide range of ways we communicate with each other.”

"If you're not a minority, and a proper oppressed one at that, you're born a racist and must abase yourself."  Etc.

“My problem with this curriculum is that this is supposed to be a writing and literature class and lessons like these do nothing to help my kid become a better writer,” the father explained. “I’m sure Lincoln administration will point to the high ELA proficiency scores but the high proportion of HCC [highly capable] kids (40% of the student body) is a big factor. With so many smart, hard working kids (white supremacists) it’s easy to support these luxury beliefs but system-wide only 63% of kids are proficient in English. Is this really the best use of class time? ”

The father also wonders how many students will fall for this toxic thinking across Seattle schools where concepts around white supremacy are so clearly partisan.

Lots.  Because most of their parents would probably rather sacrifice the kid to Moloch than be seen as guilty of BadThink by telling their kid this is bullshit.  And with schools playing "Don't tell your parents about what is said and done in class!" by said Educators, others probably either don't know or are scared to fight it.
