High schoolers taught their love for reading and writing is a sign of ‘white supremacy’

The radical left is given wide latitude to define what qualifies as white supremacy, given that it’s a critical tenet in their Marxist-inspired critical race theory teachings.

On America’s Left Coast, English students in Seattle were told that their love of reading and writing is a characteristic of “white supremacy,” according to popular talk radio host Jason Rantz.

Citing a father who has a child in Seattle Public Schools, Rantz reported, “As part of the Black Lives Matter at School Week, World Literature and Composition students at Lincoln High School were given a handout with definitions of the ‘9 characteristics of white supremacy.'”

“The Seattle high schoolers were told that ‘Worship of the Written Word’ is white supremacy because it is ‘an erasure of the wide range of ways we communicate with each other,'” he continued. “By this definition, the very subject of World Literature and Composition is racist. It also chides the idea that we hyper-value written communication because it’s a form of ‘honoring only what is written and even then only what is written to a narrow standard, full of misinformation and lies.’ The worksheet does not provide any context for what it actually means.”

Other signs of white supremacy include “objectivity,” “individualism,” and “perfectionism.”

And if students dispute the nine characteristics or deny that they are racist, that too is white supremacy.

“Denialism or being overly defensive is a racist example of an ‘entitlement to name what is an [sic] isn’t racism and that those with power have a right to be shielded from the stresses of antiracist work,'” Rantz said, quoting from the lesson.

The father, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution against his child, said: “How is a 15-year-old kid supposed to object in class when ‘denial and defensiveness’ is itself a characteristic of white supremacy? This is truly educational malpractice.”
