Fucking horrifying.

A middle school in Springfield, Missouri, recently held a diversity training program that forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix” and watch a video of “George Floyd’s last words.”

According to whistleblower documents and teachers who attended the program at Cherokee Middle School, the training began with a “land acknowledgement,” claiming that “Springfield Public Schools is built on ancestral territory of the Osage, Delaware and Kickapoo Nations and Peoples.” (At the time of publication, Springfield Public Schools had not responded to a request for comment.)

The diversity trainers, Jeremy Sullivan and Myki Williamson, asked the teachers to “acknowledge the dark history and violence against Native and Indigenous People” before engaging in the day’s program of “social justice work.”

The trainers then forced the teachers to watch a nine-minute video of “George Floyd’s last words.” The film is silent, showing only white text on a black screen, illustrating Floyd’s final utterances, including his cries for his mother. Such videos are a common technique in many diversity-training programs—and cult indoctrinations. The intention is to overload the senses of the participants and create an “emotional anchor” that serves to justify subsequent political arguments, even if they’re non sequiturs.

Next, Sullivan announced the agenda: “We’re going to look at three large concepts and those concepts are oppression, white supremacy, and systemic racism.”

He and Williamson provided the teachers a handout to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix,” which defines white heterosexual males as the “privileged social group” and women, minorities, transgender, and LGBT people as “oppressed social groups.”

Presumably, those at the top of the oppression matrix, including many of the teachers in the room, are responsible for the “racism, sexism, transgender oppression, heterosexism, [and] classism” against disfavored groups.

The diversity trainers then narrowed the focus to race, distributing another handout that outlines the concepts of “overt white supremacy” and “covert white supremacy.” The document claims that “lynching, hate crimes, KKK, neo-Nazis, [and] burning crosses” are “socially unacceptable” forms of white supremacy, while “education funding from property tax, colorblindness, calling the police on black people, BIPOC as Halloween costumes, not believing experiences of BIPOC, tone policing, [and] white silence” are “socially acceptable” forms of white supremacy.

Even more cynically, diversity trainers such as those at Springfield Public Schools have begun to insist on a standard of “affirmative consent.”

This means that teachers must not only accept the tenets of the training—in some cases even condemning themselves as white supremacists or oppressors—but also actively vocalize that acceptance.

When one teacher said that he was “afraid to say anything,” Sullivan quickly shut him down, telling the teacher that he must think what an “underrepresented or under-resourced student [might] say of our fear of speaking up.”

Remember: under the new ethics, disagreement is verboten; silence is transformed into an admission of guilt. “White silence” is a form of “white supremacy.”

Finally, after more than an hour of training, one white teacher, who was raised by a black stepfather, began pushing back, asking: “Is the district saying that we should be Marxists?”

He continued: “While I don’t think there’s a person in the room who doesn’t agree that this is an important topic that should be dealt with, the way that it’s being framed comes from Herbert Marcuse who took and stripped all of the economic policies of Marxist theory and turned it into [cultural Marxism]. . . . I grew up the son of a black man, he raised me to believe in Dr. King’s teachings. Dr. King did not teach the kind of vitriol that we see out of Marxism, [which] has a long replete history of countries being bigoted and prejudiced against others and then murdering millions as a result.”

The diversity trainers, both white, were stunned. At first, Sullivan acknowledged the Marxist orientation of the diversity training program. “I know that that’s the roots, I’m aware of all that information,” he said. Then, perhaps realizing that teaching Frankfurt School Marxism in a Missouri public school could be controversial, he distanced himself: “The goal here is to take a stand against racism, it’s not to be totalitarian. . . . There’s not some big political agenda. It’s certainly not Marxism. It’s just let’s make sure that all of our kids are truly valued and celebrated.”

For years, Americans have watched as educators have pushed deeply divisive “antiracism” programs in coastal cities such as Berkeley, Portland, and Seattle. Now “antiracism” has come to the heartland.

I don't know that I've read anything that precisely pinpoints the motive of the murder to be race related. Not sure that's the overwhelming consensus at all there. I have a feeling it might be, but that's not gonna get very far obviously.

Did the prosecution even try to claim that race was a factor?

I’ve never seen any evidence whatsoever that race played any role at all.

I don't believe race was used at all in the entire trial by either side.

For people like him it is important that it be racist because that’s how they justify and frame arguments against others as it gives them the excuse to just call anyone who disagrees a racist. It is woefully intellectually lazy and serves the purpose of not having to deal with logic and reality.

I wonder why the people that typically downplay crt or say “that’s not what it is” entered this thread only to avoid the actual article like the plague.

Better mask up around your house. The black community is the least vaccinated in the country.

Seems like springfield has come a long way from when I interviewed for a job and one of the questions was (condensed): how would you handle a parent telling his kid that a tomato is not a fruit?

Nothing about you says "I CHOOSE to live around black people".
Uh where did that poster state that he "cowers" from his black neighbors? I think you are putting words in that poster's mouth.

Getting along with black neighbors means you have to prescribe to their beliefs and leanings? Didn't know that.

So my question is this: Why are we continuing to conflate George Floyd's death with Racism?
Because there’s money in it.

There's a shit ton of extrapolation.

Claynus said he had a something to discuss with some neighbors who were black, but in the current setting with tensions raised by race centric activism, he thought it best not to confront them for the moment.

DT would characterize that as cowering because they are black, when it's likely more accurately characterized as prudent because of extraneous contemporaneous events that have raised tensions on racial lines.

It's the difference between the sheltered person who avoids the random person on the street solely on the basis that their skin is a particular shade, and a person who is wary of someone on the street who is observed just leaving an empassioned protest against people who looks like the wary person.
