Educate Together to introduce "White Privilege" training in schools

Educate Together's CEO Emer Nowlan and Education Officer Laura Dooley have urged its schools to introduce "white Privilege" training  . 

 White privilege doesn't mean your life hasn't been hard , it means it hasn't been hard because you're white

- Educate Together 
 

  

 
In an Article appearing on the Educate Together website entitled - "Journeying towards anti-racism in our schools" , its CEO Emer Nowlan and Education Officer Laura Dooley explain that conversations should start with a white person acknowledging they are privileged ....

Hi, my name is Laura and I’m privileged – how many conversations start this way? Very few if any , but they should

Anti-racist education is important and necessary. But where to begin . Acknowledge your privilege . So what is privilege?

If you are a white, settled, Irish person living in Ireland, you experience privilege .

-  Educate Together ,  Emer Nowlan and Laura Dooley , 'Journeying towards anti racism in our schools'
    

A number of Books are recommended to teachers as learning guides .  

One suggested book is - "White fragility , why It’s so hard for White People to Talk About Racism" . The Book was written by Robin Di'Angelo , a Professor at the University of Washington who specialises in "Whiteness Studies" . 

A recent review of her 
Book by American Author and Academic John McWhorte described it as ..."The prayer book for what can only be described as a cult"  and "deeply condescending to all proud Black people" . Writing for the Atlantic magazine Professor McWhorter of Columbia University said that being black ... "had no effect on my access to societal resources; if anything, it has made them more available to me than they would have been otherwise . I neither need nor want anyone to muse on how whiteness privileges them over me. Nor do I need wider society to undergo teachings in how to be exquisitely sensitive about my feelings , White Fragility is, in the end, a book about how to make certain educated white readers feel better about themselves. DiAngelo’s outlook rests upon a depiction of Black people as endlessly delicate poster children within this self-gratifying fantasy about how white America needs to think—or better, stop thinking. Her answer to white fragility, in other words, entails an elaborate and pitilessly dehumanizing condescension toward Black people" [link]

The Educate Together Article also lists a number of Twitter Accounts to be followed by Teachers to aid them in their understanding of white privilege . One such twitter account is Dr Ebun Joseph , a Nigerian lecturer in migration and race studies at UCD and co-founder of the Black Studies module .

Ebun who is Founder of the African Scholars association of Ireland has been outspoken in her views on white people and the racial order in Ireland.

  

 
Educate Together's announcement comes amid a backdrop of hostility towards white people following the death of Geroge Floyd and subsequent rioting by the Black Lives Matter group which has resulted in over hundred statues of white American statesmen accross the country being removed including the Jefferson Davis Memorial and Christopher Columbus Statues in Virginia , the latter set on fire and tossed into a lake . 
 
In Ireland , anger among Anti Racist Campaigners has reached new highs with a former employee of the European Network Against Racism in Ireland , Mark Malone , sharing a post calling for white people to be abolished altogether . 

   
The Educate Together network of Schools was founded in 1978 by Dalkey parents opposed to Catholic Education for their Children , the first school - the Dalkey School Project opened in Dun Laoghaire in 1978 ,  followed by the Bray School Project in 1981 and North Dublin National School Project in 1984 . Today , the Company has a network of 92 primary schools and 17 second-level schools. 

In recent times , the Company has been taking over Catholic Schools abandoned by the Church such as St. Kevins College in Crumlin which opened as an educate together school last September but under the new name 'Clogher Road Community College'  . Educate Together was the first school system in Ireland to mobilise children politically organising a number of rallies for the Fridays for Future / School Strike for Climate protests .

so much brainwashing going on in schools its very worrying . children are being force fed all this marxist political theory . its no wonder they want the voting aged lower for school children because they know they've indoctrinated the children enough to vote the way they want them to vote .
^
"indoctrinate together" , "vegetate together" or "educate together" you decide . I hope their pupils will be smart enough to think for themselves and see whats going on . it only takes one pupil to stand up and question a schools politcal agenda . ask questions and seek the truth and everything will unfold . racism against white people is just as wrong as any other form.
^
maybe rename the schools to "Vegetate together" , then they can implement all the crazy policies they like , bunch of anti irish bigots , you'd want to be mad to send your child there .
^
most racism in ireland today is directed at irish people . From billboard campaigns calling us racist to programmes in schools and universities calling us racist , all funded by the European Commission through various grants and social funds administered through government departments .

The end result is to put us down , keep us in our place while they take our country away from us .

^
Exactly Roy,

If WE as a people Do Not stand up to Wrong Doing, then We become nothing more than an Instrument of Wrong Doing!.

Put simply, I am all right Jack is a mindset of many in this country, why upset the norm if the norm is serving you well.

IF people DO NOT get off their arse in this country and fight for a better way of life, then WE will all suffer for THEIR greed, stupidity and short-sightedness and eventually they too will eventually fall foul of the Evil Monster of Communisism!
^
it must be beat down the paddy week , between this and imelda's self righteous garbage , they'd have us all in chains if they could .
^
these schools are dangerous . they want irish kids to feel guilty about themselves and their heritage. Its a cult . they brainwash kids .
^
It is EXACTLY that Angela!

Like all cults, they first make you feel guilty, then break down all family and social structures, then make you feel Thankful for having taken everything, that YOU & YOUR Family worked hard to obtain!, because after all one can not be totally beholding to any cult, If one still has the ability to break free!
^
i think its time for parents to withdraw their children from educate together schools , they clearly have a political agenda . people thought they didn't have religion in schools , but this is a religion , the religion of cultural marxism , a neo communist ideology
^
Excellent Mick, seriously excellent diagnosis of a sickly nation, or rather a nation being lead and directed by sickly thinking folk, Sadly.

This is less about care for Black folk, but more about control of the Gobshites who know no better. Communist driven agenda that levels off the classes of people in a society by making them feel bad about the LITTLE they may have achieved or obtained. Next as soon as all class is removed, they will teach us to be more than grateful for the ability to feed ourselves and our kids!. Having removed the desire for progress and the dream of obtaining more for our kids and ourselves, they Will if successful, then instruct us all on how to depend ONLY on the state & demand that we curtail all our wants, wishes and desires for THE GREATER GOOD!
^
thanks charlie , some of the worst kind of racists are those who self loath themselves and their own race . this kind of thing will only serve to divide people .

white privilege , tell that to parents working all hours god sends to put food on the table for their kids . Tell that to the parents struggling to pay their mortgage and put a roof over their head , Tell that to 9000 homeless families and children .

white privilege , yeah right , what a bunch of racists we have now running our schools
^
Hi Lucky, hope you are well.

You are so correct Lucky. They are indeed nothing more the self loathing hypocrites!.

Feeling self loathing and NOT at all in contact with the average working man or woman, they assume that ALL the privileges they enjoyed by either virtue of birth or by immoral & unethical means, is common place!.

SOCIAL ENGINEERING GENOCIDE IN IRELAND 2020. 
THE LIVE " LAB RAT " FOR GLOBALIST EXPERIMENT. It has been happening for at least 20-30 years,maybe longer if the truth be known.Burning all the Bridges of an Irish Culture,
Heritage,Nation and its ETHNIC RACE. Through the schools
and education systems it Radically Brainwashes CHILDREN
AND TEACHERS in so called white privilege guilt and LGBT
Propaganda.This is THE NGO HUB OF THE WORLD,foreign
investment by E-U-N. I'm sure all those other nations are happy ITS NOT THEM. The guilt and blame rests at their feet
Now And Forever because they are part of these GLOBALIST
SET-UPS,and it's Their Foreign Monies that fuel this. Not happy enough with THE 800 years of COLONIZATION,
GENOCIDE,FAMINE,PENAL LAWS AND BARBARIC TREATMENT OF INNOCENT PEOPLE, What were you doing
all that time,WHAT DO YOU DO NOW ? Oh yes, your part of
this too. YOU ARE COMPLICIT BY E-U-N INVOLVEMENT.
The BABY BOOMERS- GRAY GENERATION Is the last of its
kind to oppose this uncivilized practices by these SATANIC
SOCIOPATHS, and that's what GLOBALIST E-U-N PLANS.
THE RADICAL BRAINWASHING WILL CONTINUE,sheeple

i agree lucky (for once) , any time in dublin , i see homeless sitting in rain wet clothes , never once saw a homeless black person , no such thing as white privilege , they want to brainwash our kids to hate themselves , its wrong and we must call them out on it . nice one chas

Thank you Charlie, great article!.
This whole ethos greatly angers me, because it demands that we as a nation forget our own history as an enslaved people, with neither help nor recognision from fellow Europeans.
It is appalling that our political leaders, The EU and our so called brothers & Sisters in Europe would stand by and allow such injustice against this nation!.

I have NO doubt there are racists in Ireland, as in EVERY nation worldwide. But to tarnish a whole nation as racist is frankly criminal.

I lived in Many countries and saw the misery MY PEOPLE suffered for simply being Irish. In the UK (Birmingham) the majority of homeless folk were IRISH!, In London it was about 50%, in Glasgow between 30 and 40%. In Australia, Brisbane homeless was again heavily represented by Irish Men!. In Berlin I met 9 Irishmen who were homeless aand living in misery.

This was a period between '85 & '99. PLEASE TELL ME, where is their WHITE PRIVILEGE??.

MY family was totally supported by my Father, we had very little from the mid' 60's to '82, when I was in full time employment, WHERE IS OUR White Privilege?. My Father worked every day of his life, taking anything so long as he could support his family & educate his children!. This includes dangerous work, which ended with Cancer in his mid 60's, he died prematurely because HE wanted better for his kids, where EXACTLY is / was his White Privilege??.

It sickens me to hear over privileged, over paid and over entitled politicians lecture us about White Privilege!
^
certainly a lot of privilege among executives of educate together. CEO Emer Nolan went to school in blackrock then did 10 years in UCD getting a Phd , you need a lot of privilege to be able to do that. a lot of money .

The other lady Laura Dooley , she too spent 10 years at university

yes , These people are very very privileged indeed.

now back to the real world and working class areas where most white people are struggling to get by on the margins of society just minding their own business and trying to get by , they happen to be white so what , through No Fault of their own and all of a sudden these people living in glass houses who probably never had any hardships want to paint them all as 'white privileged' and racist , the whole thing disgusts me
^
Bull as always you hit the nail on the head!.

I love reading your replies because you have the great knack of saying it as it truly is!. You Are of course correct, when you say that these people Are indeed measuring themselves and their unearned privilege against the rest of us, not liking what they see in themselves they then project on to others!.
