BIPOC Teachers at Oregon Elementary School Claim Eye-Rolling at Principal is Form of White Supremacy
“We believe that much of the resistance to Principal Moffett’s work… is a result of bias and targeted aggression.”
A group of teachers at an elementary school in Oregon who identify as BIPOC, meaning Black, Indigenous, and people of color, are up in arms over other members of the staff allegedly rolling their eyes at the principal.
They also claim to have identified a number of similar “microaggressions.”

Oregon ‘BIPOC’ teachers claims eye-rolling is an example of a ‘harmful practice rooted in White supremacy’
Oregon teachers at the Errol Hassell Elementary School sent school administrators an email claiming that eye-rolling directed at a principal, among other alleged actions they observed, is an example of a “harmful practice rooted in White supremacy” that is happening in the workplace.
The educators from the Beaverton School District said in an email on May 27 that they had become of aware of a “rumor” that Principal Cynthia Lam Moffett was on the chopping block.
“We believe that much of the resistance to Principal Moffett’s work… is a result of bias and targeted aggression. As BIPOC educators we have observed, experienced,and witnessed similar micro and macro aggressions,” the email said. BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and people of color.
The teachers included an extensive list of “micro and macro aggressions.” Many of them were concerning the staff’s responses to the principal. It said, “Staff members rolled their eyes during… meetings while Principal Moffett is speaking”
It continued, “Staff raised their voice and interrupted Principal Moffet during… meetings, and spoke in a disrespectful and aggressive manner.”
Everyone on the left seems to regard themselves as an activist these days and believes their flawed workplace can be improved through their activism.
And of course, they are the victims in all this:
After listing out all their complaints, the teachers asked why they are being labeled “divisive” when they are trying to dismantle those “harmful practices rooted in White supremacy.”
This February Newsweek article about the school explains much about the environment. Remember, this is an elementary school:
Dad Calls Out School’s ‘Lack of Transparency’ With Social Justice Lesson
A father of an Oregon elementary school student has sought legal counsel following the removal of his child without his permission from her classroom during lessons of a social justice curriculum initiative.
After previously filing a complaint concerning what Jeff Myers described as a “lack of transparency” about Errol Hassell Elementary School’s 21-Day Social Justice Challenge, Myers filed a separate complaint after his daughter was pulled out of her classroom and told to sit in the hallway with a book during one of the social justice lessons. When his daughter asked why she had to sit outside, her teacher told her that her father had requested it.
“The principal told my kid’s teacher to remove her from the 21-day challenge lessons, which I absolutely did not ever ask for or even hint at,” Myers told Newsweek, noting that he never wanted his daughter to feel singled out, excluded or embarrassed…
He is now seeking legal advice regarding the incident. His previous complaint to Beaverton School District concerned the alleged dismissiveness from the school’s principal Cynthia Moffett towards his inquiries about the 21-day challenge.
According to the Beaverton School District’s Office of Equity and Inclusion, the program’s goal is to “learn more about ourselves and each other to serve the entire EHSL community with more efficacy and empathy.”
Progressives are turning schools into left-wing political indoctrination centers that ignore the teaching of basic skills.
