‘Parenting While White’ Workshop Offered by Elite Private School in Washington State

Progressive parents in Washington probably just love programs like this one.

The College Fix reports:

Elite private school offers workshop ‘Parenting While White’

Regular readers of The College Fix are well aware of how so-called “whiteness” can be defined as virtually anything, and be culpable for just about any conceivable malady.

After all, academics have classified whiteness as a disease, an abuse of children, responsible for “all psychic suffering,” and even a sin.

Affluent, progressive Caucasians are big fans of this sort of stuff; why else would they shell out over $22,000 for just pre-K to a school that offers what the Charles Wright Academy does?

As part of its diversity, equity and inclusion program, the pricey private institution near Tacoma, Washington offers a monthly “affinity group for parents” titled “Understanding Whiteness.” Last month it also held “Parenting While White” and “The Importance of Discussing Social Identity with Your Kids” trainings (see flier).

All three are led by the co-founder of the Teaching While White website Elizabeth Denevi, an assistant professor at Lewis & Clark College. Some of Denevi’s published works include “White Fragility in Students,” “Helping Whites Develop Antiracist Identities: Overcoming Their Resistance to Fighting Racism” and “What If Being Called ‘Racist’ is the Beginning, Not the End, of the Conversation?”

The “Parenting While White” workshop discusses the “importance of talking to white children about race,” with Denevi offering helpful tips as well as “mistakes and lessons learned.” This and the social identity workshop allegedly are places where parents can “ask important questions about navigating healthy identity development.”

Denevi and Teaching While White partner Jenna Chandler-Ward say their program deals with how whiteness is “a set of assumptions that is the baseline from which everything is judged [and] what passes for normal.”

“ importance of talking to white children about race”

How about John Derbyshire’s The Talk?

Washington State is less than 5% black. I would open the doors and give a warm welcome to these fart-sniffing “progressive” imbeciles here in Philadelphia any time they want.

Ironically, those parents pay $22K/yr per kid specifically to keep them away from black kids. And they also pay 2X as much at the local woke organic store for brand name products available at WinCo, which they avoid with a passion, because, you know, those types of people shop there. Hmmmm, it just occured to me that I have never seen a BLM products table set up in front of a WinCo. I wonder why? /s

White zealot moms, catch your tykes off guard, knock them to the ground, take their money, bicycles and sneakers, scrub their pasty skin in boiling water and tell them no one likes them because they’re Satan.

Oh wait, that’s the set up for the horror movie Carrie.

I think they need a course called “Non parenting while black.”

Far more apropos….

I have found that being called a racist is usually the end of the conversation, because the person saying it needs to use the race card, because everything that they have said up to that point has been either easily refuted or openly mocked for its inherent stupidity.

“There is a certain class of race problem-solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Booker T. Washington

[az quotes]

When I am called a “racist” by one or more of the cretins of the Woke and/or liberal and/or leftist and/or whatever their mental illness persuasion I smile and chuckle at the buffoons knowing that an educated non-biased onlooker would likely agree with my self-label as a “REALIST.”

If you read the bios of these two women on the Teaching While White website https://www.teachingwhilewhite.org/team , neither of these women mention having children. Yet, they presume to tell us how to parent?

I can’t wait for the next installment: Farming While White, taught by a Chinese computer programmer.
