Repeat after them: You are a “colonizer living on stolen Native American land.” You “uphold racist ideas, structures, and policies” and will experience “guilt, anger, apathy, and closed-mindedness” because of your “white fragility.”
These are just a few of the things that teachers in the San Diego Unified School District will be forced to own up to at an upcoming white privilege seminar, which is mandatory. They will be forced to say these things whether they believe them to be true about themselves or not. Then again, in San Diego, which is 65% white and only 6.5% black and heavily Democratic, having supported the Democratic candidates in each of the last seven elections, whites probably do believe the worst about themselves.

Writing at City Journal, Christopher F. Rufo observes that the goal of the brainwashing session is to convert the teachers into good little “antiracist” activists. Presumably once the indoctrination is complete, they will begin each day with an hour of self-flagellation, while chanting the mantra “white people in America hold most of the power” and are therefore evil.
The problem with these “training” seminars, which are frequently funded with taxpayer dollars, is that they inspire hatred and resentment from the very people they are meant to appease. In 2017, Yusra Khogali, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, penned a post on Facebook arguing that white people are “sub-humxn” [sic] and suffer from “recessive genetic defects.” She concluded by calling upon Allah to give her the “strength to … kill these men and white folks.” Similar messages have since appeared sporadically, all effectively advocating an Hitlerian “final solution” for whites. With the new emphasis on anti-racism and the rise to prominence of people like Ibram X. Kendi, who preaches that “the only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination,” I fear it is only a matter of time.
