Seattle Library Holds Racially Segregated “Separate But Equal” Training Sessions in the Name of Social Justice

Headlines Politics U.S.

A consulting firm called Racial Equity Consultants has begun holding racially-segregated “listening sessions” in the King County Library System in Seattle.

The sessions are part of the library’s ongoing racial justice programs.

Consultants reportedly “begin with an anti-oppression framework” and use the segregated sessions to root out “institutional privileges and systemic inequities embedded in the current socio-political conditions that influence and affect our institutions.”

They have discovered widespread “institutional racism” in the library system, they says, and dismissed employees who reported “not experiencing or witnessing racism while working at KCLS” as likely suffering from the false consciousness of “internalized racism.”

Similar sessions are being held at the Veterans Administration Puget Sound (VAPS) facility and the King County Prosecutor’s Office.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg has recently required employees to sign a “equity and social justice” pledge, and has assigned “continued training for white employees,” who must “do the work” to “learn the true history of racism in our country.”

Washington State officials, have also begun infusing “critical race theory” into their policies and training in public schools.
