Hey You Kids, Stop Thinking for Yourself

Tell me if you think this is racist:

"emphasizing individualism as opposed to a more collective ideology"

I'd say it's a real stretch utter B.S. But that's just one of the points included in the definition of "cultural racism" in the Seattle public schools diversity policy.

What does "having a future time orientation" mean?

That means being able to plan for the future and make time commitments. Which, if you think about what they might be implying with that, is pretty racist in itself.
