Mom sues school for forcing son to take ‘anti-white’ class in ‘first lawsuit of its kind’

A Nevada mother is suing her son’s school because he was forced to take a class teaching about “anti-white” race theories.

Gabrielle Clark, the African-American mother of the student attending Democracy Preparatory Academy, filed a lawsuit against the charter school alleging her son, William, was not allowed to opt-out of a sociology class involving Critical Race Theory.

Clark spoke with “Fox & Friends” on Monday about the federal lawsuit against the school and what outraged her enough about the class to prompt her action.

The sociology class, titled “Sociology of Change,” promoted “antiwhite racism to students with some materials discussing internalized privilege and the existence of oppression,” according to Fox News, as well as asking students to label themselves and others as “oppressed or oppressors.”

The younger Clark, a biracial twelfth-grader at the Agassi Campus, was required “to make professions about his racial, sexual, gender and religious identities… which were subject to the scrutiny, interrogation and derogatory labeling of students, teachers and school administrators,” according to court documents.

When pressed by Clark’s mother about having her son not take the class, the school’s principal, Adam Johnson, informed her it was required and her son would receive a failing grade for opting out.

The mother told Fox News she was outraged that the class was even “being taught at all.”

She added that she was also angered that “they were asking my son to reveal identities that are protected.”

“You can’t do that at a job. You shouldn’t be able to do it at a school. It put a target on my son’s back. If somebody didn’t like what he had to say, then that would have put him in danger. And I think that was a grievous wrong,” Clark added.

“He was asked to answer the questions and then the teacher would then scrutinize and label whether or not his particular identities were under the category of oppressor or privileged or oppressed,” she explained.

Clark noted that she was not able to discuss the issue with other parents since Nevada is still under coronavirus lockdowns, but encouraged families to reach out to her “because it didn’t just violate my son’s civil rights, they violated all the children’s civil rights by asking those questions.”

Clark’s attorney believes more cases like this one will be coming, noting the mother’s courage in taking action and pushing back. Jonathan O’Brien named several organizations currently on the front lines of confronting “compelled speech” that in invading schools across the country.

Quillette editor Colin Wright believes this “is the first lawsuit of its kind,” noting that parents were “fooled” when the curriculum was changed “stealthily.”

“Parents were essentially fooled into approving of the new curriculum because the ideological alterations were not made apparent. The same old syllabi were used, so parents were ‘caught off guard.”” Wright explained.

The school reportedly encouraged students to push back against existing policies by staging walkouts or “occupying a cafeteria.”

The lawsuit alleged that Clark has suffered “severe mental and emotional stress” resulting from the hostile environment and is “living in fear” of retaliation.

Wright noted that this “proved justified, as he has now been suspended and accused of being a racist.”

Wright also provided screenshots of some of the objectionable material being used in the classroom.

From topics covering intersectionality, “internalized oppression,” and systemic racism to calling for students to “unlearn” some of their beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors, Wright shared the damning evidence of the brainwashing of students in a staggering thread on Twitter.
