TUCSON, AZ- If you need further evidence to support radio talk show host Michael Savage’s claim that “liberalism is a mental disorder,” that proof can be found at the Arizona Department of Education.
That agency is forcing its teachers to advocate for racial “equity and diversity” through an “anti-racist” program which…wait for it…teaches that white babies and toddlers are…racist. Yup, little Johnny still wearing his size 0 diapers is a raging racist, according to the so-called “equity and diversity” toolkit, Breitbart News is reporting.
According to Christopher Rufo, a writer and filmmaker, he tweeted:
“SCOOP: The Arizona Department of Education has created an “equity” toolkit claiming that babies show the first signs of racism at three months old and that white children “remain strongly biased in favor of whiteness” by age five.”

You see with liberals, racism is a one-way street…only whites can be racist. In the case of this program in Arizona, it’s targeted directly at white parents.
In one recommended piece of reading entitled “How White Parents Can Talk to Their Kids About Race,” the text says, “White parents should begin addressing the issues of race and racism early, even before their children can speak.
Studies have indicated that infants as young as 3 months old can recognize racial differences.”
Well, yeah…of course babies recognize color…the differences between dark and light. But racism?
The text goes on saying, “Avoiding the topic rather than actively countering it with anti-racist attitudes and actions, simply opens the door for children to absorb bias from the world around them.”
Not for nothing but the last I knew about babies, they sleep, eat, cry and poop. That’s about it.
The toolkit goes on to say that for babies aged 0-2, “White parents should make sure that their children see them interact in close, warm, intimate, trusting and caring relationships with individuals whose race and ethnicity differs from their own.”
It goes on to suggest the “importance of creating a home environment that challenges broader societal messages privileging whiteness, whether it’s though board books with characters of color, artwork in the house or even the people invited over.”
So apparently, if you don’t happen to have any friends who are people of color, you’re supposed to drive down the street, find one and bring them home. Kind of like a “bring a minority home for dinner” type of thing. Can you see the ridiculousness of all of this? Almost like show and tell. It’s absurd.

The toolkit itself promotes racism, in this case against whites. Why is everything in 2021 America tainted through the prism of color? Weren’t we supposed to get beyond that? It’s like the script from the 1960’s has flipped and now it’s the other way around.
Fighting racism by being racist in return doesn’t seem like an effective tool. In fact, it makes people resent it. This is not the America envisioned by Dr. Martin Luther King, who looked at people through the content of their character.
Yet the Arizona Department of Education is teaching racism, teaching white children to be ashamed of how they were born, a decision in which they had no choice. It’s actually the ultimate in child abuse.
Most parents are good and decent people who do not have a racist bone in their body. Our country has evolved from our past where racism was pervasive. For God’s sake, we had a black president for eight years. If this was a racist country, there is no way that could have happened.
Oh, but it gets much worse. Also contained in the toolkit is recommended reading entitled “Why Teaching Black Lives Matter Matters.”
In other words, it wants second graders taught about a Marxist, radical organization that wants to terminate the nuclear family, indoctrinate children in blatant sexualism, and reinforce that all white people are racists. Oh, and not to mention that all police are racist killers.
In the reading on Black Lives Matter, will it discuss the hundreds of millions of dollars, if not over one billion dollars of damage caused by last summer’s riots in many cases organized and facilitated by what is basically a terrorist shakedown group? Probably not.
The Washington Examiner reported an infographic included in the toolkit talks about the evolution of children’s racial attitudes.
“At birth, babies look equally at faces of all races. At 3 months, babies look more at faces that match the race of their caregivers,” the graphic notes.
Ah, but the real racism of babies and toddlers doesn’t kick in until around 30 months. The graphics say that by 30 months, children use race to choose playmates, while by ages 4 to 5, kids are full-blown 1800s Dixie racists, according to the toolkit, saying at that age children’s “expressions of racial prejudice peak.”
However, during this same age, Black and Hispanic children LOSE their inherent racism, while evil white children carry those biases further into adolescence, the teachings say.
“By five, Black and Latinx children in research settings show now preference toward their own groups compared to Whites; White children at this age remain strongly biased in favor of whiteness,” the graphic reads.
Of course, children have to be indoctrinated in critical race theory, and told that even though “they did not ask to be white…they should also know that the reality in which they are embedded ascribes unearned privileges to their whiteness.”
Oh, but merely having friends who are people of color is not sufficient. The Department tells white parents that they “can have a black friend, partner or child and still be racist.” Oh and if you deny your racism? It’s to “alleviate some of their white fragility.”
So it’s like the old trick question: “Have you stopped beating your wife?” There’s no correct answer. If you say yes, that means you used to beat your wife; if you say no it means you’re still beating your wife.
With so-called racism, if you admit you’re a racist, well…you’re a racist. If you say you’re not a racist, you’ve got white fragility and you’re still a racist. Get it?
Oh, and if you use terms like “the race card, black-on-black crime, reverse racism or colorblindness,” you have white fragility and you’re a racist.
“These are made-up terms that white people use to feel better about themselves,” the toolkit says.
“Unless we, as white people, are listening, learning and changing based on what we’re being taught within these relationships, we aren’t doing any good at all,” the toolkit continues. “In fact, we’re doing more harm than good. Clapping back when being called out only proves that white people cannot stand not to be at the center of every single conversation, policy and action.”
Get it. Heads I win, tails you lose. And you’re a racist. Including your three-month-old.
