Why So Many Public Schools Fail to Teach Literacy to BiPOC Students

770 KTTH:

Students in a Seattle English class were told that their love of reading and writing is a characteristic of “white supremacy,” in the latest Seattle Public Schools high school controversy. The lesson plan has one local father speaking out, calling it “educational malpractice.”

As part of the Black Lives Matter at School Week, World Literature and Composition students at Lincoln High School were given a handout with definitions of the “9 characteristics of white supremacy,” according to the father of a student. Given the subject matter of the class, the father found it odd this particular lesson was brought up.

The Seattle high schoolers were told that “Worship of the Written Word” is white supremacy because it is “an erasure of the wide range of ways we communicate with each other.” By this definition, the very subject of World Literature and Composition is racist. It also chides the idea that we hyper-value written communication because it’s a form of “honoring only what is written and even then only what is written to a narrow standard, full of misinformation and lies.” The worksheet does not provide any context for what it actually means.

How could it, without engaging in the white supremacy of writing? 


  1. BiPOC Students

    Why do so many conservatives uncritically adopt progressive terminology (which leftists constantly "update" to insinuate their political ideas)? There's nothing wrong with "non-white," particularly in a country that has always been populated overwhelmingly by white people.

    From wikipedia: "The acronym 'BIPOC' refers to 'black, indigenous, and other people of color' and aims to emphasize the historic oppression of black and indigenous people."

    Introduction of "BIPOC" is similar to how leftists began pushing "gender" in place of "sex," and they did this deliberately to plant the idea that it's all "socially constructed," so normal people should not object when someone rejects the allegedly arbitrary, socially-constructed categories of the past.

    We should reject their Newspeak, even when it superficially sounds innocent.

  2. Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Modern Medicine, and Modern Agriculture are all aspects of White Supremacy. We must free BIPOC persons of these oppressive burdens.
