$30,000+/year to have your kids told that they’re born racist

Per a NY Post article:

An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.

Why would any white parent send their kid to this school after reading this article?

  1. Just a preview of elite college. Why is anyone surprised?

    • An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

      Here is a link to a video collection of the “whiteness/white privilege” cult at a Portland college:

      Pretty much the same curriculum, words, phrases, cliches used at all schools and universities on the subject.

      • African-American boys and men DO commit mass shootings every single weekend, far more often than whites do. These generally get classified as urban violence and not mass shootings only because blacks are such bad shots and very few get killed in a single shooting.

  2. Bank St. is not truly an elite school in Manhattan. A school that just has many blacks as Asians and Hispanics combined, is not elite.

    What’s with this racism towards blacks? Everybody practically dislikes them, from Hispanics, Middle Easterners, Asians and Whites. Even mulatto Hispanics who mimic black behaviors, dislike blacks.

    New York City is losing its black population as with speak. Still, it’s a long way to go!

    • Liberal Hypocrisy: NYT once mentioned how private schools breed eclecticism, basically, a quality that makes people disconnected with the average person. Gotta love our Meriproles of every class, who are all parochial, when comparing to the rest of the Western World.

      I’m willing to make a bet that many Southern Italians in their native homeland of Naples, are more cosmopolitan than the average Manhattanite.

  3. This is the death knell of that school among NY’s elite. Good.

  4. “Ever since Ferguson, the school has been increasing anti-white propaganda. . .”

    Ever since another case of black criminality has been spun into black
    victimhood. . .

    Look, this is clearly all-out war and psy-ops. The coloreds can do no wrong and the whites can do no right (when the reality is far closer to the opposite). For the Left there is no enemy to the Left, and no limit to the aggression that can be heaped (legally and illegally) on the Right and whites.

    Honestly, it’s terrifying to come to understand the justifications for Nazism. Forget Hitler, if you read the George Rockwell stuff you see that he was a brilliant prole.

  5. SJW’s don’t get that liberal whites liberalism does not extend to themselves and especially not to their own kids. Liberal whites only support liberalism toward the Badwhites. They are against Liberalism for themselves.

    But don’t think that we can ever ally with them. After we have exterminated the TruCons for good we must target must be the Goodwhites. They are the “outer party” and must be mercilessly destroyed, man and woman, young and old.

  6. In the July 14 issue of The New York Review of Books is the article: “Can the Monster be Elected?” by Michael Tomasky. Hitler was at least regarded as a human being, but in Leftist imaginings, Trump has morphed into a preternatural fiend.

    • Tomasky seems to write a piece for the New York Review of Books every three months or so. The titles make for an interesting progression.

      6/25/15: “The Hillary in Our Future”

      9/24/15: “Trump”

      3/24/16: “The Dangerous Election”

      4/21/16: “Can He Be Stopped?”

      7/14/16: “Can the Monster Be Elected?”

      • Glengarry, perfect. That’s what I was think of!!


        July 3, 2016 at 1:28 pm

  7. Also, why would you send your kids to a school whose policies you felt you could only criticise anonymously? Shouldn’t that tell them something?

    But if the article is correct (I believe this is a Murdoch paper) it’s a worrying glimpse into a possible future. I’ve long felt that if you were to write a dystopian novel about white guilt and multiculturalism, a school would be a good place to start, as there is something that makes people particularly uneasy about teaching children to hate themselves. Even in the old Deep South or apartheid South Africa I doubt there was any official school policy of teaching open racial inferiority to Africans–and certainly not in the African ones.

    It also does go to show that middle class people really do believe in this stuff . No-one would choose to indocrintate their own children from infancy into a belief system they weren’t fully invested in themselves. I suppose you can argue that they may be influenced by the subconscious desire to ensure that their children are fluent in the religious language of the dominant ideology because they know that this is one of the hurdles to be overcome if you want to be middle class.But if that’s the case that’s as good as believing yourself as you have ceded to them their right to rule. This is one of those examples where class intersects with race as the white middle class consoilidate their place in society with their own language, like Brahmins learning Sanskrit, which has the effect of keeping lower-caste whites who can’t speak the language in their place.

    • It’s not clear that this will effectively teach white kids to hate themselves, but whether it does or not, it will teach them, like similar sensitivity training programs, to hate minorities. The SJWs pushing this garbage have to realize white kids being constantly told how privileged and oppressive they are will eventually wonder how they were able to attain that power, and what it says about those they oppress.


      July 2, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    • “It also does go to show that middle class people really do believe in this stuff . No-one would choose to indocrintate their own children from infancy into a belief system they weren’t fully invested in themselves.”

      More than a few parents that I know are True Believers. The two things they seem to care most about teaching their very young kids about are rape and white privilege, although I know a few who are doing the “let zie decide zie’s own gender” thing.

      This makes sense when you consider that they have a perfectible view of human nature combined with a blank slate view of racial differences. If you truly believe that men only rape because of how they’re conditioned by an oppressive patriarchal society, it would seem reasonable to start teaching your toddler about consent. If you truly believe that NAMs only do worse than other groups because of false stereotypes that would end if they weren’t perpetuated and that they’re also held down by invisible racism, it would seem reasonable to at least engage in some white privilege awareness raising, even if you don’t go into full blown hateful stuff like the things that are described in this article.

      They also have no reason not to believe these things. They learned them in college, everyone that they know who’s smart believes the exact same things, and their views are reinforced by NPR and The NY Times.

      • Excellent comment!

      • The entire liberal diatribe is all about the black inability to gel with the White majority. I’ve summed up in one sentence.

        Take the Whole Foods Supermarket Scenario in Manhattan. It’s corporate, elitist, retail, but who mostly works for this power structure that caters to White Snobs, in a multicultural setting. You got it: blacks, and blacks only, not Hispanics, not Asians, not even proles, and certainly not Muslims.


        July 2, 2016 at 8:12 pm

      • Thanks, Lion.

        The cashiers who work at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s establishments in and around Philadelphia tend to skew white.

      • This may seem a stretch, but this whole social exercise increasingly reminds me of what little I know about the Second Great Awakening where all kinds of odd spiritualist exercises swept the US leading to numerous very odd religious sects including some still around today (Mormonism, Seventh Day Adventists, etc.). Folks spent time in revival meetings, started engaging in strange rituals (snake handling started here I believe), etc. The moment is largely ignored in popular histories but had a big impact at the time.

        Some argue it led to the Transcendentalists who may be considered proto-SWPLs.

  8. How are there any minorities in this school to begin with?


    July 2, 2016 at 12:23 pm

    • I don’t have access to pricing information, so I’ll assume Lion’s is accurate. For a private school, $30K/year isn’t that exclusive even in my flyover metro area; it’s got to be WalMart territory in NYC. The parent’s are probably afraid to complain openly because they can’t afford anything better and the public schools are so bad it’s worth sucking up the SJW crap.


      July 2, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    • They’re almost certainly not paying full freight.

  9. I’m beginning to see why my colleague left NYC and moved to small town Canada. Her and her husband both got jobs at the small university in my town. It seems as if both public and private schools in NYC suck.

    • Montreal, Montreal, Montreal = the best city in North America, for disgruntled New Yorkers!!!!

      I recently a met a lady who lives in Manhattan, and originally comes from Saskatoon (a true story). She told me that Saskatoon has the potential to become the next Park Slope.

      In fact, all Big Canadian cities are SWPL towns, by our American Standards.

  10. Some whites, Gentiles mostly, are forever looking for a reason to join Jesus on the cross. Maybe Gibbon was right.


    July 2, 2016 at 12:46 pm

  11. Trump and the fucking Jewish star. I am so done with this guy.

    I don’t think Trump has a problem with Jews, or any group, Latinos included, for that matter. But this just endless amateurishness is ridiculous. Every time he starts to get some momentum he self destructs with some ridiculous bullshit.

    We won’t be in recession until next year anyway and Obama is so popular so it was always going to be hard to beat Hil. But Trump is such a fucking moron that it makes electoral victory impossible.

    But that might be for the best. We’ve destroyed Conservatism forever and that is what’s most important. If we successfully purge Paul Ryan and maybe even Rubio and McCain in August that will be more progress towards our goals. Also Trump has paved the way for a populist who isn’t a total moron to run and win next time. Maybe somebody like Scott Brown.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m still voting for Trump but I’m not donating or wasting any more mental energy on this. Now I’m looking more towards down ticket stuff and general racial/civil unrest.

    • What are you guys talking about? I’m behind with Twitter.

      Trump is reminding me more and more of Boris Johnson. Who also self-destructed.


      July 2, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    • I sometimes wonder of his stupid bullshit is intentional, if he’s really even a serious candidate. Like you, I get tired of the constant “oops” moments.

  12. The leftist SJW in charge of this program is Anshu Wahi, an Indian.

    For some reason, Indians come to this country and go far leftist. Such as the smear of fecal matter Aziz Ansari, whose country of origin, India, still has a caste system, is super tough on foreigners, and makes all homosexuality illegal.

    But that ingrate would never, ever comment on how homosexuality is not even legal in India, or campaign on behalf of the Indian poor or foreigners in India. No he just wants to come here and bash white Americans and call them racist and a ton of other things. He is welcome to return to his native India and be an SJW there. I would happily buy his airline ticket, as long as he can promise never to return.

    Would I go to India and then write an op-ed in the Hindustan Times about how much I hate Indians? Pretty damn unlikely.


    July 2, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    • Aziz Ansari was born in Columbia, SC.


      July 2, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      • So he’s an anchor baby.


        July 2, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    • Dan. Most indians don’t go far leftist at all.

      Most indians I know are just busy with careers, kids, kids’ schools etc. Vast majority of them might vote Democrats but you are not going to see them at rallies or marches like the NAM’s or SJWs or occupy Wallstreet erst or any similar losers. You got bigger problems with blacks and hispanics with their perceived victimhood, not Indians.


      July 2, 2016 at 4:32 pm

    • Tar and feather Aziz and ride him to the closest airport on a rail. His coethnics can pay for his ticket back to the home land.

      In general, a certain number of Asian Minorities (south or east) will of course be tempted to get on the AA gravy train. But this temptation should be beaten out of them.


      July 2, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    • Elite minorities like Asians and Indians jumping on the anti-white gravy train are the absolute worst.


      July 2, 2016 at 8:22 pm

      • Especially when they lecture white people about stealing the land from the natives. If they thinK it belongs to the natives then what the hell are they doing here?


        July 3, 2016 at 4:27 am

  13. I read the article and began to get angry – then I caught myself and said, “WTF do I care about what rich a$$holes do to their kids?”


    July 2, 2016 at 4:14 pm

  14. Heh, if you are white in NYC and you want to atone for your racism, you can do it for free by sending your kids to a shitty black-infested public school.


    July 2, 2016 at 4:20 pm

      BTW, Jews & Sikhs voted Brexit.

  16. ““kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.”

    Well, as long as they’re in another room…

    Btw, we need to do more to promote language for white-asian solidarity, as both groups are committed to social harmony, reducing crime, and technological progress.


    July 2, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    • You don’t understand how non whites think. Non-whites will always vote for the anti white party. Always have and always will. It doesn’t matter if the Dems are de facto anti Asian, as long as the Dems are anti white they will have a lock on the Asian vote.

      • Asians don’t think like that. HOWEVER, the mainstream media has convinced Asians that Republicans are prejudiced against Asians. And furthermore, the Republican Party is the Christian party and Asians, except for Koreans, aren’t Christian. Christian Asians DO vote Republican.

  17. Lion, what do I keep telling you? You’ve got to stick to your own. Nobody would teach a kid going to a Jewish private school that he is inferior or born guilty of anything.

    Curle, has a point. If you beleive in the original sin, the idea can be carried over to the original white sin.

    I still don’t understand how the descendants of Vikings put up with the invasion of foreigners. Vikings are the ones that are supposed to invade everybody. So OK, now they became Christians and civilized and stopped doing it, but let disgusting strangers boss you around in your own land? They mutated? Only a madman would let Somalies into Scandinavia.

    • yakov-Lion, “what do I keep telling you? You’ve got to stick to your own. Nobody would teach a kid going to a Jewish private school that he is inferior or born guilty of anything”

      But in a funny kind of way these parents are ensuring that their kids will stick to their own. They are not teaching their children to be post-racial. It’s not entirely clear whether they are teaching to believe their children are inferior or superior. On the one hand whites are to blame for everything, but on the other that’s because we’re held to a higher standard.

      I have a theory that White Guilt is a subset of White Nationalism. The reason that white liberals are so hostile to white nationalists is not that they are so different, but quite the reverse. Political movements are hostile to those ones that swim in the same waters and try to appeal to the same kind of people. Like Neo-Nazis and other ‘white power’ movements, white-guilt believers believe in the idea of race, they see history in terms of racial struggle, They think that the white race is imbued with characteristics that make it unique and separate from all the others. They believe that whites have a shared destiny that can only be achieved after a struggle but which will give birth to a new and better world. These parents want to make their children leaders of whites, albeit in a negative, self-loathing way. In the absence of a religion to hold society together they have turned their race into a religion, like a mirror image of the Nazis. If you look at turn of the century Germany the cultural currents that gave birth to Nazism are in some respects quite similar to the hippy and ‘alternative’ movements of 60’s America–paganism, vegeterianism, animal rights, Jungian psychology and other pseudo-scientific creeds. All are centred around an idea of something being lost and wanting to get back to a pure, uncorrupted and unspoilt state of existence.

  19. When Priyanka Chopra was asked by a women’s magazine what she is most proud of in her life, she answered: ‘My race and the color of my skin’. Imagine a white person saying this and getting away with it?Incidentally, the answer is stupid. Your race and the color of your skin is not your achievement. I’m grateful to to the Almighty for creating me Jewish, white and male, but I cannot be proud of it because none of it was my own choice.

  20. This is somewhat OT, but The Lion should have a field day with this article.

    Yahoo Finance

    “For Many, Affording a Good Social Life Means Not Having Kids”

    Keeping up with the Joneses has become much more complicated — and expensive. Couples must spend more to climb the social ladder, which could help explain why they’re having fewer children.

    “The areas were we see the greatest declines in fertility are areas with modern labor markets that have intense competition for jobs and an overwhelming diversity of consumer goods available to signal well-being and social status,” says Paul Hooper, an anthropologist at Emory University and senior author of the study. “The fact that many countries today have so much social inequality — which makes status competition more intense — may be an important part of the explanation.”

    Hooper and colleagues developed a mathematical model showing that their argument is plausible from a biological point of view.

    Across the globe, from the United States to the United Kingdom to India, fertility has gone down as inequality and the cost of achieving social status has gone up….
