A new preschool is opening in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle. It's goal: to indoctrinate children younger than seven in social justice and inter-sectional theory. The school, dubbed the “anti-racism preschool, was the "brainchild" of Benjamin Gore and Jason Frelot, who are opening the preschool at the back of the Columbia City Church of Hope, where they will educate young children on the “experiences of people of color.” It is set to open its doors in the fall.
This is madness. It is one thing to teach children that we shouldn't judge people because of their skin color. It is completely another to install "shame" on children for a perceived never-ending injustice per the Social Justice mantra.
I was brought up in the 1960s and 1970s and can attest to the fact that we were actually taught not to judge people by the color of their skin. Rather, we were taught to weigh the content of their character. Installing a faux and unwarranted "shame" on new generations simply propagates the issue and obstructs society from moving on from racial disparities of the past.
It is well past time that we, as a society, start excoriating the race-baiters among us. It is time to teach our children that those who make a living or seek to attract notoriety on the back of the issue of racism are the ones actually keeping racism alive, and for their own selfish gain.
We cannot move on to a better society if we allow this race merchants to force racism onto future generations.
