Elementary school goes full Marxist, requires kids to rank their "power and privilege," assess their racial and sexual identities

Jan 14th

In yet another story of full-blown Marxist indoctrination of our children, an elementary school in Cupertino, California was caught using Critical Race Theory curriculum to force third-graders into conversations about sexual and ethnic identity, and then rank themselves on an intersectional sliding scale of worth.

The story was first shared by writer and filmmaker Chris Rufo on Twitter:

Here's some of the pages from the curriculum, along with commentary:

"First, the teacher told the eight- and nine-year-old students that they live in a "dominant culture" of "white, middle class, cisgender, educated, able-bodied, Christian[s]" who "created and maintained" this culture in order "to hold power and stay in power," said Rufo.

"Reading from This Book Is Antiracist," continued Rufo, "the teacher taught the children the theory of 'intersectionality' and claimed that 'those with privilege have power over others' and that 'folx who do not benefit from their social identities... have little to no privilege and power.'"

"Folx"

Next, these eight-year olds were asked to create a "map" of their identities, or in other terms, to see how valuable they are as human beings. This included an exploration of sexual identity as well (again, these are third graders).

"The teacher asked students to create an 'identity map,' listing their race, class, gender, religion, family structure, and other characteristics. They were told to 'circle the identities that hold power and privilege,' wrote Rufo.

It only got worse from there.

"In a related assignment assignment," said Rufo, "the children were asked to write short essays describing which aspects of their identities 'hold power and privilege' and which are 'oppressed'—in effect, ranking themselves according to the intersectional hierarchy."

Fortunately, a group of Asian-American parents caught wind of the curriculum and were infuriated.

"They were basically teaching racism to my eight-year-old," said one parent.

Let's say, however, that you see no problem with this curriculum. Perhaps you haven't made the connection between Marxist groupthink and the new "anti-racism" movement espoused by BLM and a thousand cultural elites. A Chinese-American parent involved in this mess can help you out:

"[It divides society between] the oppressor and the oppressed, and since these identities are inborn characteristics people cannot change, the only way to change it is via violent revolution," said the parent. "Growing up in China, I had learned it many times. The outcome is the family will be ripped apart; husband hates wife, children hate parents. I think it is already happening here."

Note that this case comes from Cupertino – a city that basically exists because Apple is headquartered there. The average home goes for over $2 million dollars in Cupertino and the median pay in the city is $172,000. The school in question – R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School – is not only one of the most privileged in America (scoring in the top 1% in the state), but already has an Asian-American majority of students (94% of the students are non-white).

"In short, nobody at Meyerholz is oppressed, and the school's high-achieving parents know that teaching intersectionality instead of math is a waste of time—and potentially dangerous," said Rufo.

Despite that, this is the ideology that the elites in the Academy, Big Tech, Hollywood, Wall Street, and Washington are pushing day by day.

Expect it soon in a neighborhood near you!
