School District Categorizes Asians as ‘White Adjacent’
November 17, 2020
Asian-American parents recently took on the entire California political establishment and helped destroy California’s Proposition 16, a proposition supported by Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Governor Gavin Newsom, Golden State Warriors, San Francisco 49ers, and so forth.
Proposition 16 was created to return affirmative action to California, after being outlawed in 1996. Racial minorities rejected the reimposition of racial preferences in public university admissions, according to The College Fix.
Recently, North Thurston Public Schools in Washington state school district started grouping together white and Asian students in its “equity” research.
North Thurston divided students by “White/Asian” and “students of color” in its “Monitoring Student Growth” report, according to The College Fix.
Asian-American students do not fit the narrative that all students of color underperform when compared to their Caucasian counterparts. Asian-Americans actually outperform their Caucasian counterparts and progressives hate that narrative.
Journalist Zaid Jilani addressed the report via Twitter and called the exclusion of Asian-Americans from “students of color” an example of “racecraft.”
“Your ‘color’ is defined by the average performance of your group in school?” Jilani Tweeted:
“If they broke out Asians from white students, it would probably necessitate creating endless conversations about Asian privilege or some such thing, it seems like this is the only move they could make to avoid changing the narrative.”
North Thurston Public Schools was apparently bombarded with “comments” and the report has been taken down less than a day after being released and replaced with an explanation and apology, however, the internet and Asian-Americans not ashamed of who they are never forgive. They did not apologize because they are sorry, they apologized because they got caught.
“Upon reflection and response by members of the Asian-American community, we will change how we look at achievement data and appreciate the feedback we received,” the district wrote: “We apologize for the negative impact we have caused and removed the monitoring report from our website.”
“We feel it is important to continue the practice of disaggregating data, so we make equity-based decisions. When we reviewed our disaggregated data it showed that our district is systemically meeting the instructional needs of both our Asian and White students and not meeting the instructional needs for our Black, Indigenous, Multi-racial, Pacific Islander and Latinx [woke whitespeak for Latino] students. The intent was never to ignore Asian students as “students of color” or ignore any systemic disadvantages they too have faced. We continue to learn and grow in our work with equity as a public-school system and we will ensure that we learn from this and do better in the future.”
North Thurston’s deep-seated liberal/progressive racism toward Asian-American success is a preview of what is to come.
Step 1: Categorize Asians as “white adjacent”
Step 2:Blame Asians for their “privilege” because they are “white adjacent”
Step 3:Institute affirmative action in every state in the union and handicap Asian success
