Oklahoma teacher lectures students: ‘To be white is to be racist, period’

Yet another “teacher” has been caught indoctrinating students in leftism instead of teaching useful skills like math, grammar, or science.

The latest doozy comes from Oklahoma where an educator told students that all white people are born racists and nothing can ever change them.

Students in Norman, OK, were startled when a teacher (who is thus far going unnamed in reports) began to “teach” them how to “heal the racial divide” by starting the lecture off telling them “to be white is to be racist, period,” KFOR reported.

The lecture was recorded by one of the students and leaked to the press shocking the whole community.

The teacher continued telling students to ask themselves, “Am I racist? And, I say yeah. I don’t want to be. It’s not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?”

Here the teacher was telling the kids that all their parents raised them to be racists.

One student told KFOR that she was highly offended.

“Half of my family is Hispanic, so I just felt like, you know, him calling me racist just because I’m white… I mean, where’s your proof in that?” the girl said.

“I felt like he was encouraging people to kind of pick on people for being white,” the girl added.

“You start telling someone something over and over again that’s an opinion, and they start taking it as fact,” she noted. “So, I wanted him to apologize and make it obvious and apparent to everyone that was his opinion.”

Dr. Joe Siano, superintendent of Norman Public Schools, released a statement promising to look into the situation.

Racism is an important topic that we discuss in our schools. While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended. We regret that the discussion was poorly handled. When the district was notified of this concern it was immediately addressed. We are committed to ensuring inclusiveness in our schools.

The student’s father is not satisfied.

“Why is it okay to demonize one race to children that you are supposed to be teaching a curriculum to?” he asked.
