Seattle Schools Say Only Whites Can Be Racist
The systematic subordination of members of targeted racial groups who have relatively little social power in the United States (Blacks, Latino/as, Native Americans, and Asians), by the members of the agent racial group who have relatively more social power (Whites).Now, you can see that I am not just raving, here. This definition simply defies the dictionary not to mention truth. A reader of this definition cannot but conclude that it is only white Americans who are racist. If one did not know better, or did not realize that a dictionary could be better trusted to define words, one would learn from the "schools" in Seattle that "Whites" are racists. Another segment follows that almost gets it right, but still blames only whites at its conclusion.
Individual Racism: The beliefs, attitudes, and actions of individuals that support or perpetuate racism. Individual racism can occur at both an unconscious and conscious level, and can be both active and passive. Examples include telling a racist joke, using a racial epithet, or believing in the inherent superiority of whites.Close, but no cigar, Seattle. Though it is the most nearly correct definition on their web-page, the last 8 words also makes the lie to mere definition and reveals their attempts to politically spin the word. Racism, according to the SPS, is once again something perpetrated only by whites. This is a blatant and quite disgusting attempt to brainwash students and faculty in the Seattle Public Schools. These people claim to be teachers, yet subvert the very definitions of words to suit their needs. It’s just more proof that our public schools in the US have become practically worthless places of political indoctrination for leftism as opposed to places for learning. If Bill Gates wanted to help his home state out a bit, he might want to spend a little of his vast fortune to buy the Seattle Public School System a couple thousand dictionaries so that they might be able to find out what words really mean. Unfortunately, it is doubtful he could find a single member of that school system who would know what the heck to do with the darn thing. Besides, they might think he is trying to “oppress” their students with his evil "White" generosity. (See the Seattle Public School System's web-site byClicking here) -by Warner Todd Huston
