A series of disparaging posts about White people was written on Twitter by the chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer at the Department of Defense’s education wing, who describes herself as a “woke administrator” and she has been slammed by critics for doing so.
Here’s one of her woke videos:
The DEI chief at the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is Kelisa Wing. DoDEA provides K-12 education to the DoD community in the U.S. and all over the world. Wing’s Twitter was put on private after the media reached out for comment, but she did not respond immediately.
“I’m exhausted with these white folx in these [professional development] sessions,” is what she wrote in June 2020. She continued: “[T]his lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too… I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS… [W]e are not the majority, we don’t have power.”
“Caudacity” is used as a slang term to describe audacity demonstrated by White people, said Fox News. “[B]eing antiracist means being active against racism… you will NEVER arrive… stop centering this on whiteness,” said Wing.
One user said: “I am exhausted by 99% of the white men in education and 95% of the white women. Where can I get a break from white nonsense for a while?” Wing then responded, saying: “If another Karen tells me about her feelings… I might lose it…”
Another user, in another post, criticized the DoD diversity chief’s article demanding all teachers take part in “dismantling racial oppression” and claimed that “racism is ingrained in the very fabric of our country.”
Wing responded to the user: “Bye Karen.” The former President Trump was also referred to by Wing, as the “whole boy version of a Karen” and former secretary of education Betsy DeVos as “the queen of Karens.”
DoDEA “directs… education programs for school-age children of Department of Defense personnel” and “provides support and resources to Local Educational Agencies throughout the United States that serve children of military families.” The United States, Europe, the Pacific, western Asia, the Middle East, Cuba, Guam, and Puerto Rico are the places where DoDEA schools are located in.
According to a press release, Wing oversees curriculum at DoDEA, and has also co-created children’s books that said that White people must confess their privilege and were de facto hurting Black people by being benefactors of unearned advantages.
The book, “What is White Privilege?” says: “White privilege hurts a lot of people. If you are White you might feel bad about hurting others or you might feel afraid to lose this privilege.” “Overcoming White privilege is a job that must start with the White community,” the book said. “[W]ill you really feel good at the end of the race when you look back and see others fighting obstacles that you didn’t even have?” the book also added.
According to a nonprofit that monitors books taken down from the shelves, the book was reportedly taken down for review along with other radical-left titles by a Florida district. This is what Wing said on Twitter about the report: “Honored to be involved with work that causes good trouble.”
