An Oregon middle school was exposed by furious parents after likening her colleagues to pedophiles and warning them they'd be fired if they refused to teach critical race theory.
Katherine Watkins, an 8th grade humanities teacher at Cedar Park Middle School in Beaverton, Portland, told colleagues during a Zoom 'equity conference' that if they were 'going to keep up those old views of colonialism, it's going to lead to being fired'.
Watkins also equated teachers who 'do racist things' with pedophiles, during an inflammatory statement that her colleagues were forced to listen to.
She said: ''If you're not evolving into an anti-racist educator you're making yourself obsolete in this field of profession.
'Our district is only getting browner and browner with our children and so obviously you can't change your melanin alright? But you can change your mind, so that you can actually function in a district that is full of BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) children.
'So, if you're being resistant I understand that, but you're going to have to eventually come to the light.
'Because if you're going to keep with those old views of colonialism it's going to lead to being fired because you're going to be doing damage to our children, trauma.
'And so, as we fire the teachers who sexually abuse our children, we will be firing the teachers who do racist things to our children and traumatize them.'
'So as we fire the teachers who sexually abuse our children, we will be firing the teachers who do racist things to our children and traumatize them.'
Watkin made the comments on February 10 during a virtual conference of teachers in the Beaverton School District, called 'Equity ABAR (anti-bias anti-racist) Summit: If Not You Then Who?'.

8th grade HUMANITIES?!
What kind of asinine class is that?
and it is that Critical Race Theory is abusive to children and more in line with pedophilia than those trying to stop it...
If this is who is teaching your kids, pull them out of school.
Do whatever it takes.
If the only other option is home schooling, do that.
“in this field of profession.”
There is no such thing as a “field of profession,” Miss Educator.
Why do woke white people who live in lily white areas subscribe to CRT BS? Virtue signaling? Live outside your white enclave for a minute. Surround yourself with the wonder that is black culture. See if you feel the same way after.
Katherine Watkins is violating the civil rights of both her colleagues and her putative students. She needs to be fired. Immediately.
Notice the party that brought ‘pedophile’ to the conversation. Typical propaganda technique to project your intent into future actions of your opponent so you won’t be accused of it in ‘retaliation’.
The same white men who brought agriculture and irrigation, turned it into a flourishing breadbasket and attracted massive immigration from outside tribes like the Xhosa, who produced St. Nelson Mandela?
I am beginning to think that Northwestern Oregon (Mainly Portland Area) doesn’t want to be part of the USA anymore. I suggest, we grant them their Independence.
My reaction as well. I was homeschooled but most of my friends were not. Never heard of any classes in humanities. They didn't get much history either. :(
I can tell you for a fact the children I have 14-year-old and 11-year-old
They actually hate racism and can’t stand anybody who’s racist at all
Being children of course they know what this really means and that means not judging people by their skin color
This means not using demeaning racial epithets
Nothing more nothing less
All CRT is is a thinly veiled democratic communist playbook plot to try to re-create race hatred
And the only way they figure they can do this is to just bring out the old hate Whitey playbook
I can say for a fact it’s not gonna work with the children
Kids these days want to except everybody for who they are and give everybody the same amount of crap. !
Everybody gets the same amount of insults the exact same way it’s perfect
( Of course I have boy children)
It’s probably the new politically correct term for “Social Studies” which replaced GEOGRAPHY back in the 70s.
She’s guilty Jim.
Teacher should be fired for not knowing the definitions of those two words.
Whites are still trying to teach them how to dig a water well and how not to poop in them.
she is not white
Fighting critical theory is anti-racism.
If she's not soon in the ranks of the unemployed, everyone now employed at the school should be joining her there, pronto.
