This is truly despicable, but what we’ve come to expect from Loudoun County Public Schools, Equity Commandos, and the NAACP. The deniers will say this isn’t indoctrination at all. However, PACT noticed otherwise (see quotes below).
The (6) slide deck images are from a LCPS Middle School based on “The Look”. Take note of the “New Bias Reporting Tool” slide image. They didn’t place this slide in the beginning of the slide deck, but the end. Why? Watching “The Look” and going through ALL of the discussion points are building blocks for students to then submit a “Bias Report”. Who reviews these reports? The Student Equity Ambassadors (3) in ever MS and HS, the Equity Advisor, LCPS-Equity Commandos, and the NAACP. Folks, our kids won’t be able to move without “triggering” another student to file a “Bias Report”. White people’s body movement are apparently considered “microaggressions”, which can only be done by white students, in other words, the body movements of white people can be racist. This is not a joke.
Please take a moment to review this post AND click on the links to review “The Looks” website. I couldn’t make any of this up on a bet.
