EQUITY! Colorado Teacher Wants 8th Graders to Know ‘Terrible Things White People Did’

A public school teacher in Colorado faced a growing backlash on social media Monday after emails show the educator wanted to instruct 8th graders about the “terrible things White people did.”

From Fox News:

A Colorado public school diversity teacher said in private emails that she was struggling with the urge not to “burn things down” which didn’t represent equity, according to records reviewed by Fox News Digital. 

Casey Menninger is a diversity teacher in Jefferson County Public School District‘s Foster K-8 school. Menninger was involved in crafting the curriculum for other teachers to present to their classes. 

Menninger wanted classes to be focused on bad things done by White people. 

“I will have a quick presentation for 8th grade in the next couple weeks… I just want them to work on some of the communication skills and understand some terrible things White people did,” he said in an email dated January 2022. 

His emails, obtained by a public record request, showed that staff were not completely on board with his equity class, and they were “talking trash” about him.
