At least five overpriced private schools in New York City are now subjecting parents to racist harangues and indoctrination sessions under the guise of “anti-racism” and “diversity,” and refusing to admit children of parents who will not comply, according to news reports. More than a few parents have expressed outrage.
The New York Post, which first broke the story, identified multiple examples of “elite” private schools in the Big Apple conscripting parents into the mandatory racial brainwashing. While the sessions at some of the schools were officially “optional,” parents reported that school officials were even taking attendance.
The cost of these institutions is in the neighborhood of $60,000 per year, per child, according to news reports. Why any parent would pay a single penny to have their children subjected to the same abusive brainwashing that their taxes already fund in government schools was not immediately clear.
One of the worst offenders was Brearley School, an expensive all-girls indoctrination center in Manhattan. According to the student application, “parents are expected to attend two diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism (DEIA) workshops per school year.”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) — often labelled DIE by critics for its deadly consequences — is the newest euphemism for hyper-racial propaganda declaring that some people are inherently racist due to their ancestry, while others are inherently oppressed victims.
Black critics of the scheme have regularly lambasted proponents as racists and wannabe “white saviors.” Furious black parents and pastors have especially denounced white adults training their children to see themselves as perpetually oppressed victims, in true Marxist style.
Anti-racism, meanwhile, is a new term demanding Marxist government controls and institutionalized racism to counteract alleged “systemic racism” that supposedly permeates all Western societies and cultures. Only a racial dictatorship can cure this problem, according to leading advocates of the half-baked idea.
Anti-racist kook Ibram X. Kendi, for instance, a tax-subsidized “scholar” at far-left Boston University, claims America needs a “Department of Anti-Racism” (DOA). Among other tasks, this unelected body of “formally trained experts on racism” would “be responsible for preclearing all local, state and federal public policies,” he said.
As part of attending the “elite” girls’ school in Manhattan, parents are expected to write an essay swearing fealty to the institution’s supposedly “anti-racist” so-called values, similar to the hateful propaganda spewed by Kendi. They also must sign a loyalty oath pledging their support to the ideology, according to news reports.
“We expect teachers, staff members, students and parents to participate in anti-racist training and to pursue meaningful change through deliberate and measurable actions,” the pledge declares. “These actions include identifying and eliminating policies, practices and beliefs that uphold racial inequality in our community.”
At another over-priced replica of the government’s indoctrination centers, named after Unitarian founding father of America’s Prussian-style government “education” system Horace Mann, a “family learning session” praised the work of racist Robin DiAngelo of “White Fragility” fame. DiAngelo claims, among other absurdities, that all descendants of Europeans are racist.
“How can we take DiAngelo’s message and make it applicable to all communities in the [Horace Mann] community,” mumbled the trainer under a “Black Lives Matter” face diaper reading “I CAN’T BREATHE.” “I don’t want to be in necessarily white spaces, because when black children were put into those spaces their support and caregivers were taken away and they were put into racially hostile environments.”
It is hard to imagine any sensible person could be paid enough money to allow their children to be brainwashed and abused with this sort of toxic poison. That there are enough willing to pay money to have their children destroyed proves the old biblical cliché is true: “A fool and his money are soon parted.”
