Seattle Tells Its White Teachers to ‘Bankrupt’ Their Privilege and Acknowledge Their ‘Thieved Inheritance’

Washington’s trying to improve its education system.

To that end, the state’s largest public school district is reportedly instructing white teachers to “bankrupt [their] privilege” by keeping a classroom focus on social justice.

This, according to CityJournal writer and Discovery Institute Christopher F. Rufo.
On Friday, Christopher posted to Twitter a series of allegedly leaked documents from Seattle Public Schools.
Front and center: critical race theory training for its molders of young skulls.
The slides ask teachers how they’ll promote racial justice at work, but first, they’re informed everyone’s “on the ancestral lands and traditional territories of the Puget Sound Coast Salish People.”

Beyond that, the district issues a Stolen Labor Acknowledgement:
We want to recognize that the United States was built off the stolen labor of kidnapped African and enslaved Black people’s work, which created the profits that created our nation.

We also recognize the Brown labor currently happening in California and across this country. They are working under terrible air quality conditions, with wildfires burning over 1.2 million acres of land, in addition to the pandemic; to pick strawberries for your smoothies.

Here’s the Caller on what they created:

Another slide features author Zaretta Hammond, who has written a book entitled “Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain,” which guides teachers on interrupting “implicit bias” in the classroom so they can build trust with “diverse” students. The slide pulls a quote from the book that calls on teachers to “commit to the journey” by checking implicit biases. Another slide shows a quote from Hammond’s book describing how “your lizard-brain” will “freak out” when it’s time to talk about sensitive subjects like racism and sexism, a neurological mechanism that tries to keep people in their comfort zones

Under Bankrupt Your Privilege, the instructional tells white people what’s what:

Let’s take this moment as an opportunity to translate our feelings into actions that protect and cultivate Black futures. … For others, it’s time to bankrupt your privilege in acknowledgement of your thieved inheritance

One slide points out, “Whiteness, the centrality of whiteness and the possession of white skin are assigned considerable power and privilege in our society.”

The training appears to separate everyone into two groups.

White people “ultimately…[have] the greatest responsibility to a relationship,” and “reflection and self-interrogation are critical.”

On the other hand:If you experience marginalization, part of your responsibility is to take care of yourself, practice self-empathy and centering the importance of your feelings

Teachers also get the low-down on government.

Part of the training involves a lesson on “spirit murder,” which is done to “the souls of Black children every day through systemic, institutionalized, anti-Black, state-sanctioned violence.”
