Photo: Upper Gwynedd Township Last Updated on October 4, 2022 Elementary school students in the North Penn School District were forced to partake in an exercise, commonly referred to as a “privilege walk,” where students deemed “privileged” were forced to step forward and later apologize to their supposedly less fortunate classmates. A teacher rubric for the exercise included links to work from a number of far left, “anti-racism” experts, including Ibram X. Kendi and Cornelius Minor. In response to parental concerns, one district school board members have told parents to “read a book,” while another accused them of getting their talking points from Fox News.
“Privilege walks” have become common DEI curriculum in a number of public-school districts across the nation. Students are typically asked to start at the same point, then take one step forward every time a “privilege” that applies to them is listed.
In the case of Kulp Elementary School in the North Penn School District, students were asked to step forward if they could “find band-aids at mainstream stores designed to blend in or match with your skin tone” or if English was their first language, among 15 additional questions.
At the end of the exercise, students were asked to reflect on their supposed privileges and analyze the perspective of their supposedly less fortunate peers.
A teacher guideline for the exercise included nine options for additional resources in order to better conduct the exercise, as well as other lesson’s, within the district’s DEI framework. One resource option instructed teachers to follow New York-based author Ibram X. Kendi on Twitter.
Kendi has written numerous books on “anti-racism,” a philosophy that includes many of the same themes found in the often-mentioned Critical Race Theory (CRT). According to Kendi, the world is divided along binary lines into racists and anti-racists. [T]here is […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
