‘All Whites perpetuate racism’, teach NY public schools with dramatized videos of dead Black kids: Whistleblower
According to a whistleblower, Buffalo Public Schools diversity czar Fatima Morrell has pushed 'radical politics' with a new curriculum that insists that 'all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism'
BUFFALO, NEW YORK: Public schools in upstate New York are reportedly teaching their children “white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism” and showed them “videos of dead black children”. The revelations have been made by Christopher F. Rufo, a contributing editor of City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty. The journalist explained the scenario in an article on Tuesday, February 23.
As reported by The Sun, Rufo was informed about it by a whistleblower, who claimed Buffalo Public Schools diversity czar Fatima Morrell pushed “radical politics”. He noted, “According to one veteran teacher, who requested anonymity, Morrell’s training programs have pushed ‘radical politics’ and, in practice, become a series of ‘scoldings, guilt-trips, and demands to demean oneself simply to make another feel ‘empowered.’' Teachers must submit to these ‘manipulative mind games’ and express support for Morrell’s left-wing politics, or risk professional retaliation.”

Rufo then went on to say that the new curriculum insists that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism and often unconsciously, white elites work to perpetuate racism through politics, law, education, and the media.” The article also stated that the Buffalo school district has embraced new instructions, such as “culturally responsive teaching,” “pedagogy of liberation,” “equity-based instructional strategies,” and an “emancipatory curriculum.”
The piece written by the contributing editor explained “more divisive” lesson plans, which he got from the district. “In kindergarten, teachers ask students to compare their skin color with an arrangement of crayons and watch a video that dramatizes dead black children speaking to them from beyond the grave about the dangers of being killed by ‘racist police and state-sanctioned violence.’ By fifth grade, students are taught that America has created a ‘school-to-grave pipeline’ for black children and that, as adults, ‘one million Black people are locked in cages.’”
As per the article by Rufo, “American society was designed for the ‘impoverishment of people of color and enrichment of white people,’ that the United States ‘created a social system that had racist economic inequality built into its foundation,’ and that ‘the [current] wealth gap is the result of black slavery, which created unjust wealth for white people,’ who are ‘unfairly rich.’”
The Sun said that Morrell’s new curriculum seems to be following Woke Kindergarten, whose philosophy is “Liberation is the goal. Abolition is the journey. Woke Kindergarten is a global, abolitionist early learning community, creative expanse and consultancy supporting children, families, educators and organizations in their commitment to abolitionist early education and pro-Black liberation.”
Several people on Twitter reacted to Rufo’s article after he shared it online. One user tweeted, “Shock how? That some folks actually recognize how the systems of this country support white supremacy?” Another one suggested, “Lawsuits need to be filed. Anything not yet addressed by the law needs to be banned in public institutions This is an outright racist violation of human rights in public institutions.” “She’s the superintendent so somehow she got to that position with all this systematic racism she speaks of. I agree there’s racism but doing this in the schools is absolutely terrible and setting us back not moving forward together. And saying all white people are racist smh,” a person added.
