Rhode Island School District Encourages Entire Town to Report Violations of ‘Anti-Racist’ Policy

“any member of South Kingstown is encouraged to report incidents or allegations of incidents”

The left has gone full-authoritarian on social justice issues. Encouraging people to snitch on each other is scary stuff.

‘Orwellian’: School District Encourages Entire Town To Report Violations Of ‘Anti-Racism’ Policy

A Rhode Island school district is encouraging its community to report anyone who violates the district’s anti-racism policy.

The “Anti-racism, Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy” at South Kingstown school district in Rhode Island says anyone in the educational community is “personally responsible” and must “immediately report” different kinds of racism including, “cyber racism,” “interpersonal racism” and “institutional racism,” according to the district policy. The policy states that “any member of South Kingstown is encouraged to report incidents or allegations of incidents” that break anti-racism policy guidelines.

The school district administers “No Contact Orders,” prohibiting any verbal and physical contact between the alleged offender and victim, once a report is filed, the policy states. The policy aims to create a district that is “actively anti-racist and anti-discriminatory.”

“The South Kingstown School District Anti-Racism policy creates a paranoid, stasi-style online reporting system for any member of the Town of South Kingstown to report not only incidents of racism, but also cyber racism and interpersonal racism as defined by the district,” Nicole Solas, South Kingstown resident and Independent Women’s Forum senior fellow, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Violations of the policy include racism, defined as “systemic oppression of a racial group,” and cyber racism, which is racism on websites and blogs, as well as text messages, emails, images and videos, the policy stated. Interpersonal racism, defined as pre-judgment or bias in “privately held beliefs, conscious and unconscious and external behaviors and actions towards others,” and institutional racism, which is “inequitable outcomes for students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in institutions,” are both included in the policy.

What can I do to get myself reported? I don’t live in South Kingston, but I’m anxious to make a name for myself among the idiots of their school administration.

Anyone who doesn’t hate white people enough is in violation I guess

This is 1984 in reality-and should be fought vociferously by whatever legal available means

“cyber racism”

I ‘m afraid to ask what this means. Prejudice against disembodied AI?

    It means that Libs of TikTok catches you admitting to grooming your students.

    Theoretically it means online bullying. In practise I suspect it means anything the reporter finds disagreeable.

“The school district administers “No Contact Orders,” prohibiting any verbal and physical contact between the alleged offender and victim, once a report is filed, the policy states. The policy aims to create a district that is “actively anti-racist and anti-discriminatory.”

This implies they’ve assumed the role of police and court over the population of the town. Do they mean students in the schools or everyone? Even if just students, just wow.

How about eff off. The next school board meeting will be … interesting.

    No, of course not the population of the town. That’s not what it says. It says the school community. Why would it occur to anyone that they’re asserting authority over anyone else? What could they do to anyone who neither attends nor works at the school?

      Well, it implies that because the writing doesn’t say anything about “while at school”. I get the idea of a “no contact” order on school grounds or at school activities. But the way it is written, it implies the “no contact” applies at all times. Which is well outside the jurisdiction of the school, even if it is only applied between students of the school. To have it apply outside school grounds would require an actual court and law enforcement agency get involved.

      Also, we have certainly seen school boards and city councils step WELL outside their lanes on this stuff of late. Why would you assume, based on the comment made, that they would NOT be thinking of themselves as philosopher-kings who can simply declare whatever they feel is necessary to achieve their utopian ends?

These board members need to be dragged from their homes by a vigilance committee, right out into the street.

And, to keep my comment from being pulled… given a stern talking-to!

    You’ve already advocated a crime. Which is your perfect right, and I agree with you. But having done so, how would it be worse to advocate that they be beaten, tarred and feathered, or even lynched if that’s what you really think? Advocacy is always legal, even if it’s meant seriously; how much more so if it’s hyperbolic.

Very stern indeed Mr. Bear. Much finger wagging. ;p

    If they get nasty with me… I will write strongly worded letters! And use uniformed employees of a federal office to deliver them!

Snitches get….
