This tidbit from FAIR—Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism—was too ‘good’ to not comment on. It speaks for itself. If you’re not familiar with FAIR, they’re basically a legal aid foundation for racial tolerance from a non-biased, non-ideological, non-identity-politics perspective. This is crucial. If we’re going to transcend the ignorant racism of well-intentioned ‘antiracism,’ we’re unfortunately probably going to have to *sue* our way through it.
Here’s a quote from the article. Keep in mind: The woman being referred to is a *black female teacher trained in antiracism*:
“In her first week at De Ana College, Lee was accused of ‘whitesplaining’ as she tried to set a meeting agenda, and she was told that she was perpetuating ‘white supremacy’ by valuing punctuality & engaging in strategic planning.”
You can’t make this stuff up, folks. Here’s the article: https://www.fair-for-all.org/dr-tabia-lee/
