Consultant tells Philadelphia teachers that expecting good grades is racist

A glaring example of the effects social justice activism has had on the American education system recently played out at a conference held in Philadelphia with the intent of teaching teachers about the ills of white privilege.

One particularly divisive seminar came from consultant Heather Hackman. The 24-word title of her racially motivated tirade promised to address the “corrosive effects of whiteness” in education.

Her message included an unveiled threat to any “white faculty member … unwilling to get with the program.”

Hackman concluded: “We do see you, super-whitey. We’re coming for you.”

She went on to conclude that standards by which good students are judged, e.g., high grades and reliable attendance, are somehow evidence of white supremacy in the classroom.
