Elementary School in Washington State Allegedly Excludes Whites From ‘Safe Space’ for BIPOC Students
“in 2023, discrimination is hip in left-wing circles”
The left is actively trying to divide children by race. Where do they think this leads?
Jason Rantz reports at KTTH Radio:
Rantz: Elementary school bans white students from ‘safe space’ club
A local elementary school has a student club that excludes students based on their race, according to a parent.
Centennial Elementary in Olympia established a 5th-grade BIPOC (“Black, Indigenous, People of Color”) student group that the principal says excludes white students, according to a screenshot of an email shared with the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. The email, which the district has confirmed is real, shows principal Shannon Ritter admitting the “group is limited to students who identify as BIPOC.” The club meets once a week during their lunch period, and the school is reportedly in the early stages for an additional “BIPOC-only” student group for 4th graders.
Ritter also explains that “this space allows them [BIPOC students] to hang out, check in and possibly talk about their experiences as a student in the minority as they build community, connections and confidence. It is primarily a safe space for them.” A group for so-called allies may be established, as well.
While “affinity groups” have been established at schools nationwide at the behest of the equity movement, they’re usually described in ways that make it clear white people aren’t wanted without expressly telling them they can’t join. That would be illegal discrimination. But in 2023, discrimination is hip in left-wing circles.
A spokesperson for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction says the state does not provide districts guidance on affinity groups. But attorney Mark Lamb of Carney Badley Spellman, P.S. says this discrimination is legally questionable. He cites Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. He also notes that the district’s anti-discrimination policy bars discrimination based on race, color, or national origin “for all students in all aspects of the academic and activities program.”

Good. At least the White kids are safe now and then.
My first thought then scrolling down I see your comment and I know for sure I am hanging out with the right crowd!!!
Maybe not. I’m sliding down the hill from racially aware toward becoming a racist. I don’t want to, but..
WRONG!!!! The evil tyrant-owned indoctrination and propaganda systems strive relentlessly to have us apply the “racist” label to ourselves. In reality, the proper label is REALIST!!!!!
If the school established the club then it’s illegal and it shouldn’t be hard to find a plaintiff.
If the school merely allowed students to establish the club themselves then it’s probably legal, but it can’t prevent white students from forming a corresponding club of their own and giving it all the same accommodations.
Good. White kids shouldn’t need safe spaces. Safe spaces are for pansies, and if I were a white kid there, I’d wear that on a lapel button.
So can you start a White Pride affinity group at these Woke schools, or are they the only affinity which is prohibited? 😀
Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.
I’m not yet comfortable thinking this way, but, in my heart I know that forced integration has been bad for everyone.
Where they want it to lead, with white children being beaten on school buses.
