    Exclamation Seattle is training white employees to overcome their “internalized racial superiority"

    Cult Programming in Seattle

    https://www.city-journal.org/seattle...rce=whatfinger

    The city is training white municipal employees to overcome their “internalized racial superiority.”

    Christopher F. Rufo July 8, 2020 The Social Order

    Last month, the City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.” Hoping to learn more, I submitted a public records request for all documentation related to the training. The results are disturbing.

    At the beginning of the session, the trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color. The trainers claim that “individualism,” “perfectionism,” “intellectualization,” and “objectivity” are all vestiges of this internalized racial oppression and must be abandoned in favor of social-justice principles. In conceptual terms, the city frames the discussion around the idea that black Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “blackness” and white Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “whiteness”—that is, the new metaphysics of good and evil.

    Once the diversity trainers have established this basic conceptual framework, they encourage white employees to “practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism” and work on “undoing [their] own whiteness.” As part of this process, white employees must abandon their “white normative behavior” and learn to let go of their “comfort,” “physical safety,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.” As writer James Lindsay has pointed out, this is not the language of human resources; it is the language of cult programming—persuading members they are defective in some predefined manner, exploiting their emotional vulnerabilities, and isolating them from previous relationships.

    It’s important to point out that this “interrupting whiteness” training is not an anomaly. In recent years, nearly every department of Seattle city government has been recruited into the ideological fight against “white supremacy.” As I have documented, the city’s homelessness agency hosted a conference on how to “decolonize [their] collective work”; the school system released a curriculum explaining that “math is a tool for oppression”; and the city-owned power company hired a team of bureaucrats to fight “structural racism” within their organization. Dozens of private companies now offer diversity training to public agencies. The idea that all whites have unconscious, “implicit bias” that they must vigilantly program themselves to overcome has become an article of faith across corporate boardrooms, academia, and law-enforcement agencies, even though the premise is unscientific and impossible to verify.

    The endgame is to make Seattle’s municipal government the arbiter of the new orthodoxy, and then work outward. At the end of the session on “internalized racial superiority,” the diversity trainers outline strategies for converting outsiders and recommend specific “practices for interrupting others’ whiteness.” In effect, the activists have organized an ideological pyramid scheme—using public dollars to establish their authority within the government, then using that authority to recruit others into the program. As Lindsay writes, “the goal is no longer to indoctrinate on what is ‘rightthink’ and ‘wrongthink.’ It is to make the [subject’s] thinking be completely in line with the view of the world described by the cult doctrine.”

    How far can this racial-justice shakedown extend itself? The new racial orthodoxy has seen exponential growth in the past few years and has proved extremely difficult for local governments and elite institutions to resist. The movement’s key rhetorical premise is designed as a trap: if you are not an “antiracist,” then you are a “racist”—and must be held to account. Skeptics might dismiss Seattle’s “interrupting whiteness” training as a West Coast oddity, but it is part of a nationwide movement to make this kind of identity politics the foundation of our public discourse. It may be coming soon to a city or town near you.

    [...] the school system released a curriculum explaining that “math is a tool for oppression” [...]
    I'm not an Objectivist, but things like this tempt me to think that Atlas Shrugged could be more a work of prophecy than of fiction.

    (In my mind's eye, I can see from altitude the lights winking out and Seattle going dark ...)

    If this continues, then they deserve exactly what they're eventually going to get.

    Unfortunately, they're trying like hell to make sure that everybody else will get it, too.

    And they're succeeding ...

    Oh, they invited them, huh? The attendees will either be self-loathers, cucks or employees afraid to lose their jobs. And a lot of that will be one-in-the-same.

    Michigan to REQUIRE 'implicit bias training' to maintain any medical license!

    (On second thought, I think this actually deserves a thread of it's own)

    Michigan to require ALL medial workers to undergo same brainwashing.
    This would apply to ALL medical workers!
    (And check out the rationale of the Dean of the College of Nursing at Michigan State University)
    Michigan to require all medical professionals to undergo implicit bias training
    Updated Jul 10, 2020; Posted Jul 09, 2020

    Michigan medical professionals will need to undergo implicit bias training in order to be licensed by the state, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and state leaders announced Thursday.

    The state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is in charge of licensing medical professionals. Under a new executive directive from Whitmer department will create new rules that make implicit bias training mandatory for people to qualify for licensure, renewal or registration. The new requirement is based on a recommendation from the Michigan Coronavirus Task Force on Racial Disparities, led by Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II.

    “The coronavirus pandemic has shown that this inequity is particularly and dangerously true,” said Gilchrist, who has lost 23 people in his life due to the virus.

    Michigan Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun said 40% of the coronavirus deaths in Michigan have been Black people, which comprise 14% of the population....

    ...Randolph F.R. Rasch, dean of the College of Nursing at Michigan State University, said implicit bias was an unconscious classification of somebody based on a physical attribute.

    Rasch said years ago he personally was on a walk and crossed the street when the saw a younger Black man walking. He stopped to think about why he’d done that, even though he himself was a Black man and had many positive experiences with Black men. What he realized was, “I had learned, unconsciously, to fear him. And at that point, I went back across the street,” Rasch said.

    LARA Director Orelene Hawks said the measure was not a silver bullet. However, “it has become clear that this is a significant step that we can take to promote health equity and eliminate health disparities among Michigan’s communities of color,” she said.

    She said the rulemaking process typically takes six months to one year to complete. Under the executive directive, LARA is required to consult with stakeholders on the matter by Nov. 1...

    If you are white, then you automatically feel superior to other races - regardless of whether you are consciously aware of that feeling or not.

    In fact, if you are white and you consciously deny that you feel superior to other races, then you definitely need to go through this training ...

    Re-Education (will there be a camp?)

    How very unsurprising
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    They don't think it will. It's not about ending racism and bigotry.

    It's about gaining and keeping power over other people.

    Actually ending racism and bigotry is the last thing they want to do, because then they would lose the source of their power.

    That's exactly why they've concocted this "if you're white, you're a racist. Period. The only question is whether you are finally willing to admit it and do penance by submitting to our will" nonsense.

    There was none of that pre-Obama, such diversity trains have picked up pace steadily during Obama-Trump revolutions, going from 10 to 100 mph in 12 years or so. With social liberal donors in firm control of both parties and traditional GOP conservatives severely demoralized, this trend is showing no signs of reversal. In two years from today, majority of adults in US will be minorities & hispanics.

    Relating such shifts to US Politics, post-maga avalanche of headlines like above could be the reason for recent reports like "Biden gaining strength among White voters" ?

    GOPA wing/Trump's zig zag flip flop political outreach puppy whisteling strartegy of minorities outreach,social justice/diversity celeberation at 3PM, honoring MLK at 6PM , tweeting 'White Power' clip at 9 PM and deleting that tweet at 1AM appears to be failing. Perhaps rinse repeat of pre-election birtherism outreach and quick post election retraction is no longer selling among the 'had me 6.0' folks. I digress but GOP social/christian conservatives seem to be done for good (credit Bush-Cheney) and liberalism based 'diversity is our strength' model trainings like above likely would be the norm going forward.

    Like i said what Democrats are doing is what their liberals did best agaisnt the Balkans this is called dehumanization.They are trying to remove your spirit or rather fighting spirit if anything.

    Actually ending racism and bigotry is the last thing they want to do, because then they would lose the source of their power.
    Exactly and they would lose their wealth.

    To liberals, that train of thought would be completely justified since white people of the past made them suffer through slavery. Course they'll also ignore the fact that African leaders from African countries sold their own people into slavery.

    Do White Liberals know that White Europeans even Italians also suffer through Slavery at the ottoman empire era when they nearly conquered Europe? i do beleive that was also called the dark ages of Europe because many children and families were sold into Slavery by the Ottoman empire and were send to the middle east and other countries as slaves.

    This is a fact that Liberals dont want to face.

    since white people of the past made them suffer through slavery
    Even Europeans in the East and Italians white people made them suffer? last time i checked when the Roman empire fell all the slaves were returned to their homelands and with supplies for their long journey.

    Liberals lack in Education area.

    Yeah. I have a feeling that giving these lessons to the kinds of white people who will be in attendance will just be preaching to the choir.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Black superiority is not only tolerated, but encouraged. Good for them, having pride for their race

    A white person having white pride? RAYCISS!!!

    I'm white and am very aware that I'm superior to other races.

    Does that awareness make me more or less racist?
