    This is truly abhorrent

    An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

    Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

    So fighting discrimination with discrimination is a good thing and should be rewarded?

    Can you imagine a better way of creating a world full of people who are obsessed and divided by race instead of creating a world of people who see themselves as equals regardless of race.

    This is the most anti-egalitarian thing I've ever heard.

    Well done for bringing back segregation to the US... and Bank Street isn't the only place.
