Racism 2.0: The making of a racist

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 12,  2019

By Vicki McKenna 

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” — Martin Luther King Jr., 1963.

MADISON — Is MLK Jr.’s dream of a color blind society dead?  

If the Social Justice Industrial Complex gets its way, it will be. And this generation of kids will be the one to kill it. They are the foot soldiers of the American left’s reset of racism. Their teachers are the Field Marshalls. Let’s call it RACISM 2.0.

White privilege. White supremacy. Microaggressions. Implicit bias. These are the buzz words and hashtags of Racism 2.0, the left’s racialist Political Theory of Everything. They are building blocks, not punchlines.

This is a wholesale rehabbing of racism as VIRTUE in the name of justice, under the banner of “diversity” or “inclusivity.” 

Using America’s historical sins, her people’s passionate penance for those sins — and their longing for absolution, the left has turned racism inside-out, cloaked it in virtue and weaponized it for the cause of destroying the fabric of this nation. 

It starts in American schools, where teachers train children to believe that there are only innocent and guilty people. The guilty are always white because some white people owned slaves. Your granddad could have marched with MLK, or fought for fair housing. It’s irrelevant. If you are white, the Social Justice Industrial Complex has declared you guilty. 

Don’t believe me? This is a poster hanging on the wall of an English classroom at Middleton High School:

This was the work of a STUDENT. She regurgitated her lesson correctly: that white males are privileged–and bad. 

Look at the figures. Notice the first figure. It is labeled “PERSON of color.” Beside it are the positive or sympathetic phrases: “given no chance,” “willing to help out,” “trying in work place,” “passionate,“ “low social status,” “low pay $.” 

Now notice the second figure. It is labeled, impersonally “White male.” Beside it are the phrases “angry face,” “not nice,” “not caring,” “does not try,” “many opportunities” and “$.” 

The teacher was so inspired by it, she hung it up — and kept it there for subsequent classes — as a lesson to other students. 

But that’s not the only racist lesson being taught in Middleton High. A text from a student who is part of a leadership group that helps students at his school notes the “lesson” from his teacher-adviser:

“She went on this long tangent about how society was created for white people and how this school and our society was structured for white people. Because of that, you cannot — no way no how — be racist towards a white person,” he wrote. “According to her, white people are the dominant race while everyone else is non dominant, because of this white racism (reverse racism) is not a thing.”

“I think a lot of the students there including myself felt very uncomfortable by what she was suggesting and saying about what racism was.”

Don’t delude yourself into thinking this is just a problem in Middleton. Racism 2.0 is everywhere. Here is a notice sent out to parents from Verona Area High School on a mandatory all-day “Social Justice Youth Summit” students attended on Dec. 6. 

“With the VASD strategic plan as our guide, Verona Area High School is dedicated to building a strong and inclusive school culture. As part of this effort, Verona Area High School is holding its second annual Social Justice Youth Summit. This special event  … is designed to engage all high school students and staff in learning about social justice topics.”

Some of the sessions for students included, “What is privilege and how can I use it positively?” and “What are the consequences when free speech goes too far?” 

Recently, a piece from MacIver Institute reporter Bill Osmulski exposed how the teachers in the Wisconsin technical school system are being taught to think, speak and act to promote Racism 2.0 in order to impart the lessons of privilege, inclusivity and diversity in their classrooms.

So what matters now? Content of character? Not so much. Color of skin? Definitely. 

Bill Ayers, leftist domestic terrorist and professor and adviser to President Barack Obama, channeled Josef Stalin in a speech to failed socialist dictator Hugo Chavez at the World Economic Forum in Venezuela in 2006, when he declared, “Education is the motor-force of revolution.” 

Indeed. And today’s kids are the cannon fodder.

  • My first thought was, “this looks like something a first grader would write and draw, not someone in middle school and high school”. What are these kids learning? No writing skills at all……omg …lol

  • As a parent of a Middleton High School student, I find this article to be incredibly misleading.
    If the lessons taught to our daughter even came within 5% of what is described by the author, we wouldn’t allow her to attend.
    It’s becoming intolerable to see what was once a party of intelligence and honest straight talk, devolve into a cesspool of intentional misleading commentary and pandering for a voter base. Vicki, I have a student I have the books and I have the notes. Come back to the logical intelligent side of conservative views please.

  • Public schools in most parts of the USA are staffed by left leaning to far left teachers. And they are producing a poor product. Students nationwide are less competitive on the world stage. In math our student average is higher that only 5 of 33 countries. In reading our student average is higher than 13 of 33 countries. Source: http://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=1. My daughter suffered under a few teachers whose courses were riddled with their liberal opinions and who stifled discussion of different views. Taxpayers are unwittingly funding this behavior in our schools. Anything done to break the hold that liberals have on our schools is a step in the right direction. Stop voting for liberals / democrats / socialists. Watch this short video of a John Stossel interview: https://youtu.be/kl0-n0zWVJk . Or this video on immigration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUU2iWxrH2M&feature=youtu.be Also search “WalkAway Movement” on the net and see videos from former Democrats about why they are leaving the Democratic Party.

  • Never declared this before, but , under the category of diversity, all— inclusion, I say:” I’m proud to be White”!
    The liberal indoctrination of our students at all levels, seems to follow the Hitler program: brainwash, take guns away, control them, then murder them.
