The fact that you felt the need to divide your students by race in order to teach them how not to be racist assholes pretty much confirms that you are not the right people to be teaching others how not to be racist assholes.

I don't see a lot of brown and Asian folks causing these problems. Maybe they needed to divide them to deprogram them.

The racial makeup of Piedmont was 7,917 (74.2%) White, 144 (1.3%) African American, 6 (0.1%) Native American, 1,939 (18.2%) Asian, 13 (0.1%) Pacific Islander, 94 (0.9%) from other races, and 554 (5.2%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 421 persons (3.9%).

It's not quite that simple... even if you're totally emotionally detached from the event itself you may be seeing a lot of suffering in your classmates... it's probably hard for some kids to know what to do, whether/how they should try to help, etc.

Remember, these are KIDS we're talking about.

Look, the thought that you can't slowly murder a black person in broad daylight, on a public street, while surrounded by witnesses, on camera, which is later broadcast to the world is very very upsetting to white people! What is the point of being white, if one little 10 minute long murder, caught on camera and broadcast to the world is enough to get you locked up!  How can you win when the deck is stacked against you like that.  What are white people supposed to only murder black people when no witnesses are around? Like some sort of criminal?  What is America coming too?

There are zero people who genuinely don't understand that Black Lives Matter is not intended to mean Black lives matter more than other lives. Zero.

This is a High School we're talking about. We're expecting these students to be able to make a decision about joining the military. I had to deal with my cousins getting shot at in MIDDLE SCHOOL.

These students are old enough that the only appropriate response to feeling triggered by the Chauvin verdict is "Quit being racist."

The point is "Black Lives Matter" means "Black Lives Matter, Too".

The problem is white snowflakes see "Black Lives Matter" and lie to themselves that it means "Only Black Lives Matter". Because, as usual, if it isn't about them, "it must be" against them....

They say this because they view non-whites as dangerous, and they see themselves as the noble wardens of these supposed barbarians that take great personal risks to allow them to co-exist.  They are bigots and cowards.

"to support White students who would like to discuss how the trial, verdict, and experiences related to the George Floyd murder are impacting you."

It was horrifying to see cops callously murder a man in front of bystanders pleading for them to stop, stressfully suspenseful wondering if one dumbass would hang the jury, and a big relief to hear "Guilty, guilty, guilty" and see the cuffs slapped on Chauvin.

I daresay the above was felt by a whole lot of people, of all races.

Not quite the same thing but an Australian school had it male students stand up and apologise to the females about sexual assault. The thing is, I can see at least one well meaning school doing this thinking it will help.

Also, at least it's good to know where Tucker Carlson sends his kids to school. Joking obviously.

Nobody in the whole world of ever has even asked a white person to apologize for everything bad done by white people.

What I do remember, though, is politicians demanding that Muslims distance themselves publicly from terrorists .

I wasn't making any assumptions about the emotional state of children i've never met just because of their race, that would be prejudiced.

My point was to offer a hypothetical that some student may want help figuring out how to support their friends who are suffering as a result of the situation. How is that so difficult to grasp?

Really? Because this is exactly what it looks like when you have all the non-white kids get together and discuss the incident and specifically exclude the white students. The implication is that the white students were either somehow responsible or complicit otherwise why wouldn't you want them there? When you have a problem in your marriage and you want to improve things you go to therapy together. Leaving out the white kids is sending a message and you are going to do nothing but encourage tribalism. Just read the article and you have a mixed race student saying he didn't think this was even needed because it was a good community and they could have all discussed things. What a refreshing idea. Can't have that though the new method of solving racism is to make everyone hyper aware of race because race is absolutely everything and the only defining characteristic anymore.

This is a popular right-wing talking point, particularly when it comes to things like the 1619 Project. They like to believe any honest discussion of this country's racist history, and racist present, is intended to tell little white children they they personally are racists. It feeds the narrative of persecution and victimhood they enjoy so much.

Acknowledging our racist history doesn't make every white person currently alive responsible for it. But if we can't be honest about it, we're perpetuating it, and we are responsible for that. What happened in the past was not our choice. Whether we can be honest about it now is our choice.

"Why can't my white kids stick their white noses in to a conversation between people of color and their shared experiences and whitesplain to them about how not aaaaaalllllllllllllllll of them are bad!
