A white teacher with white guilt has developed a curriculum about white privilege for school kids.
In light of recent tragedies across the country that have sparked impassioned debates on race relations, a public high school teacher in Seattle has developed curriculum to teach “White America” about racism.
Published to his blog — fittingly named Citizenship and Social Justice after the course he teaches at The Center School in Seattle, Washington — Jon Greenberg assembled anecdotes, admonishments and links to create the “Curriculum for White Americans to Educate Themselves on Race and Racism–from Ferguson to Charleston.”
“There are no doubt complexities that come with White Americans working for racial justice. White privilege can lead to a chronic case of undiagnosed entitlement, creating poor listeners, impatient speakers who talk over others, and people unaccustomed to taking orders. Nevertheless, the movement for racial justice needs more White Americans to get involved. And it’s our responsibility to help each other get involved–and get involved productively,” Greenberg wrote, linking to a blog post that claims quoting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to black women is a violent and “cisheteropatriarchy” act.
