Barnor Hesse is the guy that formulated "The 8 White Identities".I'd love to have been a fly on the wall in the room where this terminology was being formulated.

The Nazis, the KKK, and the even Confederates got nothing on today's progressives.
Reframing things to make it impossible for your side to be racist is so smart, only a demon could come up with it.
Let's agree that mathematics is racist.Guide: U.S. teachers to tackle racism in math
SALEM. The U.S. state of Oregon has declared war on racism in math classes. In the future, teachers are to learn by means of a guide that even supposedly correct results of arithmetic problems are about "white supremacy".
The state's education bureaucrats want to use a total of five steps to guide educators "toward continuous self-reflection" "as they seek to develop anti-racist math practices," according to the program. To that end, teachers should also abandon supposedly outdated notions that there are "neutral answers." Adhering to this belief is "in itself a trait of white supremacy." Black, Latino and multilingual students in grades six through eight are expected to benefit from the new guidelines.
In order not to discriminate against these groups, at least two answers will apply in the future. To that end, the letter says, "The concept that math is purely objective is false. Preserving the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuates objectivity."
Mathematics serves to preserve capitalism
Past homework practices also belong under scrutiny, according to the new guidelines. For example, the "homework policy should be adapted to meet the needs of students of color," he said.
In the future, teachers should also consider the overall social dimension of their subject. Thus, they are asked to work out "how mathematics is used to preserve capitalist, imperialist, and racist views."
The state of Oregon in the northwestern United States is considered a liberal stronghold. The city of Portland, located there, was the site of months of rioting by the Black Lives Matter movement last year. Democratic Governor Kate Brown nevertheless rejected the use of federal police against the rioters.
Are you or your Professional Learning Team looking for a deeper dive into equity work? Our friends at the Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction are offering a virtual micro-course beginning February 25, 2021, titled “Pathway to Math Equity Micro-Course 2.0: Valuing and elevating student discourse in the math classroom.”
Does anyone have any recommendations for a specific publisher or a curriculum for homeschooling that is just basic and “clean”/“old school”? I’m talking about everything from pre-k on up, I know it is progressing to a point where we won’t be able to purchase such materials any longer. I think it’s a good idea to have these kinds of books and materials on hand.
Thanks, much appreciated.You might check out The The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home. That book is a guide to curriculums you can use for a classical homeschooled education. The authors of that book do publish their own materials for history, grammar and writing, but in the book they list plenty of other publishers if you'd prefer alternatives. It lists materials for pre-k all the way through grade 12.
I've used their Story of the World books for history with my son, and Rod and Staff for math & grammar based off of the recommendations in that book. If you're looking for a more traditional education ("clean"/"old school") for your children it's a good starting point and has an active community of parents using their material.
What follows is the story of the wealthiest county in America descending into a moral panic as a group of suburban white women egged each other to extremes against perceived “evil,” while a school system seemed to slide from serving taxpayers to targeting them.
The school system’s focus on race has “radicalized privileged white women in Virginia. It has turned them into a threat to the people in their own community,” he said. “If it happened to them, what is it like for small children?”
This is a call for volunteers to combat the anti-CRT activities of the P.A.C.T. folks, the stoplcpscrt website, and the like. Looking for folks who are interested in volunteering to organize, lead, execute, and donate regarding the following points:
Anyone who is interested in this, please feel free to comment here or PM me directly and indicate what you can help with. Then we can hold a kickoff call and start on action items.
- Gather information (community mailing lists, list of folks who are in charge of the anti-CRT movement, lists of local lawmakers/folks in charge)
- Infiltrate (create fake online profiles and join these groups to collect and communicate information, hackers who can either shut down their websites or redirect them to pro-CRT/anti-racist informational webpages)
- Spread information (expose these people publicly, create online petitions, create counter-mailings)
- Find a way to gather donations for these efforts. Volunteering is great, but these activities can be costly and not everyone has extra funds readily available
"Members of the “Anti-Racist” group sprang into action, listing dozens of parents, often including where they lived, their employers, or their spouses’ names.
“I’m listing them this way: -First name -Last name -Alias(es) -Location,” Durham wrote.
“I’m losing any hope that remaining civil towards these people changes anything,” she wrote. “Avoiding these people isn’t enough to stop the spread of their evil rhetoric.”
“Anyone know any hackers?” she reiterated.
“Regarding the anti-CRT movement, we’d like to compile a document of all known actors and supporters. Please comment below with legal names of these individuals, area of residence and or school board Rep known, known accounts on social media, and any other info that you feel is relevant,” wrote Hultman-Lee, who at one point taught Latin at Potomac Falls High School and who is listed as doing business with the school district as an education consultant.
They erred on the side of accusing the innocent. In response to one name Hultman-Lee added, another member asked, “Why is she on this list? I haven’t seen her support anti-CRT?”
Hultman-Lee responded, “I put a question mark next to her bc I’m curious about some of her comments re the Dr. Seuss nonsense and racial equity generally. Happy to remove if I’m off the mark.”
Secret communications reviewed by The Daily Wire do not offer any evidence of racism by the group’s targets. Their opponents were apparently those who objected to, sought to debate, or were even simply “neutral” about “critical race theory,” a radical philosophy opposed by many liberals and conservatives but increasingly embraced by governments.
Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the sheriff, told The Daily Wire, “The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is aware of the situation and the information has been forwarded to our criminal investigations division to review the matter.”
