Teacher Sues Illinois School for Allegedly Making Students Do ‘Privilege Walks’ and Comparing ‘Whiteness’ to the Devil

“Fostering racial identities, promoting the idea that they are in conflict, and perpetuating divisive stereotypes pits teachers and children against one another based on the color of their skin”

More people should take legal action in cases like this one. This will keep happening until people make it stop.

Lawsuit: Illinois School District Forced Students On ‘Privilege Walks,’ Compared ‘Whiteness’ To The Devil

A lawsuit filed against an Illinois school district Tuesday alleges that the district violated anti-discrimination laws while teaching “anti-racist” course work.

Stacy Deemar, a middle school drama teacher, sued the school district over its curriculum allegedly forcing students to participate in “privilege walks” separated by race, comparing “whiteness” to the devil, and other lessons that pit “different racial groups against each other,” according to the suit.

“Fostering racial identities, promoting the idea that they are in conflict, and perpetuating divisive stereotypes pits teachers and children against one another based on the color of their skin,” the lawsuit says. “They teach them that their whole identity comes from the color of their skin. They teach them to hate each other. They teach them not only how to be racist, but that they should be racist.”

The Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism (FAIR), which is representing Deemar in the case, outlined some of the allegations made in the lawsuit:

… The school engaged in racial segregation, depicted “whiteness” as a devil, and taught that whites are inherently oppressive. …

Teachers were separated by race, instructed on the problems with “white talk” and “white privilege,” and required to participate in “privilege walks.” …

Students as young as kindergarten were separated by race into “affinity groups,” told to participate in “privilege walks” based on their skin color, and given books depicting “whiteness” as a devil that “mess[es] endlessly” with “all fellow humans of color.” …

The children were also taught “whiteness is a bad deal,” white people send “overt and subliminal messages” that they are “superior” and black people are “bad, ugly, and inferior,” and color-blindness is racist. …

Prediction: This suit will die on the rocks of “No standing” or even, “No harm done.”

Three words: “Hostile learning environment.” Affected parents and teachers should sue accordingly and also file relevant EEOC complaints.

If this story is true, the name of the school should be plastered all over the Internet as well so people will know that it is not a safe place (educationally) for their students. The school board that tolerated this should be cleaned out in the next election and corrective action taken including firing those responsible. That’s not “canceling” somebody for posting something on social media or a blog that somebody else did not like, it is firing them for bringing racist material into their workplace and forcing it on others.
