Pre-K students given 'Anti-Racism Fight Club' presentation at DC public school

WASHINGTON (TND) — An elementary school principal in Washington, D.C. spurred outrage after she sent a letter to parents indicating their pre-K through third graders had been exposed to an “anti-racism” presentation, at which they were also given a “fistbook” to carry on what they had learned.

In a “Letter from the Principal,” Principal Daniellle Singh announced student involvement in an “Anti-Racism Fight Club” presentation. The letter noted each student received a “fistbook” to continue the dialogue introduced during the presentation.

“If a Black person says something mean to a white person, he has no power over him,” reads an excerpt from the “fistbook” handed out to pre-K through third graders. “It’s as if white people walk around with an invisible force field because they hold all of the power in America.”

The “fistbook” also goes into extensive explanations about “white privilege,” and asserts that asking, “Why does everything have to be about race? Can we talk about something else?” is a form of subtle racism.
