Seattle Insists Whites Surrender
(RightWing.org) – We should all be outraged over this story, but the Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) and the Progressive Liberals will likely cheer over the blatantly racist and offensive “workshop” the city of Seattle, Washington held for a subset of its employees. Only certain employees were targeted to learn the process of “undoing whiteness” in the training session — White ones.
The City of Seattle held a training session for white employees called “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.”
So I did a public records request to find out exactly what this means. Let's go through it together in this thread.

Taking the Blame
Apparently, according to the class handouts, if you’re White, you are automatically guilty of the so-called institutionalized racism that the nation has been steeped in for the past 300+ years. According to the materials used by the diversity trainers – and isn’t that a huge oxymoron? — the employees need to practice “… self-talk that affirms our complicity in racism.”
Another nugget they gave to the attendees stated “racism is not our fault but we are responsible.” As ignorant and potentially illegal as that initial training was, that wasn’t the worst of it.
What to Give Up
They urged their employees to network with other Whites who are “practicing antiracist accomplicehood [sic]” as a sort of support system. Then they listed a few things that White employees might need to give up because of the privilege all White people obviously have had throughout their lives, including:
- Social status… the certainty of your job
- At times, guaranteed personal safety
Yes, that’s right, a legal governmental entity in the United States of America just suggested that one subset of their population should give up any sense of security in favor of another. If one were to flip that around and imagine some public official suggesting to a group of Black Americans that they had to give up anything, much less their right to be free from the possibility of injury or death, to make another group feel better about themselves, the uproar would be so loud they would hear it on the moon. The MSM on this training — silent.
