‘Anti-Racism’ Guide Pushed by Girl Scouts Claims Color-Blindness Perpetuates Racism

“Having honest discussions about race is important for all families, and it’s vital to have them on a regular basis, even if you find it uncomfortable”

Just your daily reminder that the left has infiltrated and ruined pretty much everything.

Girl Scouts Push ‘Anti-Racism’ Guide That Claims Color-Blindness ‘Perpetuates Racism’

The Girl Scouts told its membership that taking a color-blind approach to life “perpetuates racism,” and parents must have conversations about race and racism “regularly” with their daughters to counterbalance this narrative.

The organization released an online resource for parents designed to help their kids “take action against racism.” Much of the data and resources cited in the article are inspired by “anti-racism” and critical race theory. The resource is primarily aimed at encouraging white parents to have conversations with their children about their privilege.

“While we should be having conversations about race and racism regularly, checking in with your girl is crucial when racist violence claims lives and sparks widespread protest, grief, and unrest around the nation,” the article reads. “Having honest discussions about race is important for all families, and it’s vital to have them on a regular basis, even if you find it uncomfortable or you think your kids already know about racism and understand right from wrong.”

“Saying ‘we’re all the same’ or ‘I don’t see color’ might be well-intentioned, but it perpetuates racism because it disregards part of people’s identities,” the article continues. “Plus, saying everyone is the same implies that everyone has the same experiences and is treated the same in our society — which statistics and the everyday discrimination faced by Black people and other people of color show isn’t the case.”

This is a basic tenet of the so-called anti-racist movement. Not being racist is racist. Got it?

Will the Girl Scouts start selling Oreos?

It’s not easy being green.
Or, for that matter, brown.

Is there anything left in the scouting movement or, even, Campfire, worth supporting?

    No. Actually, the Girl Scouts went south a long time ago.

    Up until a few years ago, the Mormons had adopted Scouting wholesale as their entire youth movement. Now they’ve cut all ties and created their own.

    When I was in third grade or so, I saw a (then-new) 1948 edition of the BSA Handbook for Boys at the local mens/boys clothing shop, and was intrigued with it, so my father bought it for me (65¢). We had no Scouting activity in our area, but I absorbed all the book-smarts I could by studying it. I made sure both my boys had the opportunity to join Scouting, but it had clearly become a seriously less outdoorsy experience. Upon reviewing my Handbook now, I realize that the average third grader today probably couldn’t even read it, and most would be uninterested to try.

And that’s why we don’t put our daughters in Girl Scouts, and why we no longer buy Girl Scout cookies.
