Tool of the Week: the segregators

Empower Wisconsin | July 27, 2020

MADISON — Nothing says confronting racism like segregating students. 

As ludicrous as that sounds, that’s what the Super Woke at Madison West High School have been doing. 

As Empower Wisconsin reported last week, the school has hosted “virtual discussion spaces” for students and staff to “process the pain our community is feeling at this present moment” and “work towards being an anti-racist community.”

But school administration decided to tackle the weighty problems of racism in a Jim Crow way, according to an email sent to West High School students and their families.

The email, obtained by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, provided links for two separate Zoom calls: one for “white students” and one for “students of color.”

WILL penned a letter to the high school principal reminding her that “separate but equal” is not only misguided, it could very well be against the law — the same Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibits segregation in school. 

“(B)y associating racial segregation with ‘emotional safety and security,’ the school communicated to students and families that racial integration somehow detracts from ‘emotional safety and security,” the Milwaukee public-interest law firm asserts in its letter to West High School. 

The School District insists separating white students and students of color is all about creating “safe spaces” for adolescents to “process their emotions and feelings.” It’s about providing a place where people who “share a common identity” can get together and “speak their truths.” 

It’s the usual liberal prattle, now glazed with Jim Crow-era notions of people “being with their own kind.” It’s an antiquated idea that the left once fought against. But they’ve traded their principles of equality for false equivalencies and their religion of identity politics. 

We need more dialogue in America, and less one-sided diatribes from the pushers of radical politics. Separating high school students and sticking them in “safe spaces” is not the way to solve what ails this nation. 

School leaders who think racial segregation is the best way to confront racism in America are, without a doubt, tools. 

Madison West and all of their ridiculously woke allies are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
