Common Core Architect Reveals Agenda Behind Curriculum
“The Reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”
Pook’s statement was met with a mixture of tepid applause and jeers, prompting one on the panel to shout “hey” to try and contain the audience’s reaction.
Although the idea of ‘white privilege’ is taken as self evident to social justice activists, many have serious concerns about the true message and motives behind the ideology.
An undercover reporter from Progressives Today witnessed much of the sordid underbelly of this brand of social justice activism first hand while attending a week long conference about white privilege in Madison Wisconsin.
While at the conference, PT’s undercover reporter was asked to leave a seminar that was exclusively meant for non white patrons. When confronted with the irony of forcing racial segregation at a self proclaimed “anti-racist” gathering, conference staff told the reporter that they did not believe that anything was “intrinsically bad,” including racism and rape. The idea of white privilege presented at the conference was tied heavily to anti-Capitalist, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish rhetoric, and anti-American rhetoric that made many watching the undercover footage question about the roots and true beliefs of white privilege proponents.
The conference was primarily composed of educators attending the seminar on their respective school’s dime.
One of the stated goals of the white privilege conference is to “get the classroom in on the conversation.” Now it appears that with Common Core that it has been there from the start.
