(National Sentinel)Â Institutional Racism:Â Children in theÂ Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota are introduced to the concept of â€œwhite privilegeâ€ in their classes, the Weekly Standard reported.
In particular, Kindergartners must take part in something called the Melanin Project in order to be taught about social justice and white privilege.
During the course of instruction, students are asked to draw an outline of their hand and then color them to reflect their skin tone.
Cut-outs of the traced hands are then put on a poster with these words:Â â€œStop thinking your skin color is better than everyone elses!-(sic) Everyone is special!â€
As further reported by theÂ Western Journal:
The elementary schoolâ€™s principal runs a blog for the school community and has reportedly posted pictures of Black Lives Matter propaganda and rainbow gay-pride flags.
Edina was formerly known for its â€œgold standardâ€ public schools among the other stateâ€™s school districts, but a shift occurredÂ in 2013 resulting in sliding high school test scores and fear of persecution among students.
School officials have adoptedÂ an â€œAll for Allâ€ strategy for their academics, â€œa sweeping initiative that reordered the districtâ€™s mission from academic excellence for all students to â€˜racial equity,’â€ according to the Weekly Standard.
â€œâ€˜Equityâ€™ in this context does not mean â€˜equalityâ€™ or â€˜fairness,’â€ the website note further. â€œIt means racial identity politics â€” an ideology that blames minority studentsâ€™ academicÂ challenges on institutional racial bias, repudiates Martin Luther King, Jr.â€™s color-blind ideal, and focuses on uprooting â€˜white privilege.’â€
The web magazine noted further that a year-long English course required for 10th-graders centers on â€œthe politicized themes of â€˜Colonization,â€™ â€˜Immigrationâ€™ and â€˜SocialÂ Constructions of Race, Class and Gender.’â€
After being forced to take the course, one student said the â€œClass should be renamedâ€¦with course description as, â€˜Why white males are bad, and how oppressive they are,’â€ on Rate My Teachers.
