Christopher F. Rufo has exposed yet more racism in the public schools against white people. This time, a principal in New York sent white parents a “tool for action.”
SCOOP: The principal of East Side Community School in New York sent white parents this "tool for action," which tells them they must become "white traitors" and then advocate for full "white abolition."

This “tool” outlined the “regime of whiteness.” The guide said that all white people are one of the following:
- White Supremacist
- White Voyeurism
- White Privilege
- White Benefit
- White Confessional
- White Critical
- White Traitor
- White Abolition
According to race education watchdog Christopher Rufo, white parents of sixth- through 12th-graders received the “tool for action” from the principal of East Side Community School asking them to work toward becoming white traitors and abolitionists by “subverting white authority” as well as “changing institutions, dismantling whiteness, and not allowing whiteness to reassert itself.”
The guide was written by Northwestern University professor Barnor Hesse. He is an Associate Professor of African American Studies, Political Science, and Sociology.
The curriculum, authored by Barnor Hesse, an associate professor of African American studies, political science, and sociology at Northwestern University, weaponizes language such as “superiority” and “white regime” to challenge people who operate without fully acknowledging the “burden of Blackness.”
“There is a regime of whiteness, and there are action-oriented white identities. People who identify with whiteness are one of these. It’s about time we build an ethnography of whiteness, since white people have been the ones writing about and governing Others,” the list reads.
Hesse often advocates for similar ideals on his now-limited Twitter page, openly advocating for “All Black liberation” and criticizing “whiteness.”
The definitions of each category of whiteness are stunning. This is nothing short of racism against white people, pure and simple.
What is most sad is that children are being indoctrinated into this way of thinking. White children are being taught to dislike their own skin color and believe all white people are racist.
When will people, en masse, rise up against this? When will people start bringing lawsuits? People, including white people with white guilt, need to wake up and realize this is not good for race relations. This ideology, in the long run, will not benefit minorities or people of color.
Rufo rightly states, “This is the new language of public education.” That should terrify EVERYONE.
