A public school principal in New York City is showing just how “woke” he is by calling on parents to “reflect” on their “whiteness.”
The Manhattan East Side Community School principal asked parents to identify their level of whiteness based on a book he passed on titled, “The 8 White Identities,” which ranges from “White Supremacist” to “White Abolitionist.”
Barnor Hesse, an associate professor of African American studies at Northwestern University, wrote the curriculum that claims, "There is a regime of whiteness, and there are action-oriented white identities."
"People who identify with whiteness are one of these," Hesse said. "It's about time we build an ethnography of whiteness, since white people have been the ones writing about and governing others."
Among the identities between supremacist and abolitionist were "White Voyeurism" – defined as "wouldn't challenge a white supremacist, desires non-whiteness because it's interesting" – and "White Privilege" – "sympathetic to a set of issues but only privately; won't speak/act in solidarity publicly because benefiting through whiteness in public [some POC are in this category as well]."
Parents of students in 6th- through 12th-grades, first shared the material with staff, a New York City Department of Education official told the Post.
The principal then sent it to every parent "as part of a series of materials meant for reflection" and as "food for thought," the official said.
A DOE spokesperson stated, "Anti-racism and the celebration of diversity is at the core of our work on behalf of the young people of New York City, and the East Side Community School's students, parents, and staff partner together to advance equity in their community.”
"The document in question was shared with the school by parents as a part of ongoing anti-racist work in the school community and is one of many resources the schools utilizes,” they added. "Our staff are now being targeted with vile racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic slurs and degrading language from people outside of their school and nothing justifies the abuse directed at our educators," the spokesperson said.
The Discovery Institute's Christopher Rufo took to Twitter on Monday to post the curriculum and say, "This is the new language of public education."
One person replied to the tweet saying, "If you find this hostile, or unnerving, it's because you are fearing the loss of power and advantage that your skin color has afforded you. It's an agenda to bring true equality."
