Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee held a recent equity summit that included a governor-appointed state education agency telling other state agencies that concepts like "objectivity" and "individualism" are rooted in "White supremacy culture" and should be rejected in favor of "indigenous relational pedagogy."
During Inslee’s "2022 Governor’s Equity Summit" in Tacoma on Nov. 30, the interim executive director of the state’s Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB), which consists of 12 governor-appointed members dedicated to advancing "educational justice," gave a PowerPoint presentation titled "Internal Transformation: How an Education Agency is Transforming Itself in the Name of Justice."
PESB’s presentation began with a "land acknowledgment" recognizing "the original inhabitants of the spaces we occupy," and it asked Zoom viewers and in-person attendees to "please take a few seconds to acknowledge the land that you are on as the traditional homeland of the Indigenous Peoples."
The land acknowledgment was followed by a "moment of silence" to consider how "this country has elevated a story of democracy and freedom while minimizing the impact of violence and oppression on marginalized communities, communities on whose backs this nation was built."
The presentation then outlined some of the "cultural shifts" that PESB believes are "needed" in Washington state’s education department and other state agencies.
"What does it look like when we move away from white supremacy culture toward indigenous relational pedagogy? What can you do tomorrow?" one of the slides asked.

So says the Governor of one of the whitest places in the country.
Says the honky who won’t hear any other opinions besides the far left.
Time to resign, Jaybird. Don’t delay . . .
If objectivity is White Privilege, nobody would ever know. The moment he made that statement he moved from the normal leftist sophistry into the realm of the absurd.
“indigenous relational pedagogy”. Yep they are all nuts.
“’individualism’ rooted in ‘White supremacy’”
WRONG ON STERODS.
Individualism is rooted in FREEDOM!!
” ...Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB)...,”
Given the track record of “eddikators” in publik skoolz for the past half century, the above has to be a Maxi-Oximoron.
An education degree appears to be a joke, and the higher the level of the degree, the more of a joke it is.
How demeaning to blacks and other minorities! Apparently, their minds can’t handle such advanced concepts.
I’m getting tired of honkies like Inslee talking about “white supremacy.” The boy needs his Marxist ass kicked.
aboriginal defined as inhabiting or existing in a land from the earliest times or from before the arrival of colonists; indigenous.
Sounds to me Gov, that your position and your government are rooted in "White supremacy culture", so you’re out of here…….
And, as long as we allow the lefturds to define the terms of the debate, we will LOSE. EVERY TIME!
That is the most hollow, most meaningless, empty, virtue-signaling, liberal kook gesture possible. It's an insult to the Indians. If these people were serious, they'd deed over their properties to the Indians to atone for their white sins. But not one of them ever does anything meaningful like that.
Now I’m a white supremacist too?
.. “please take a few seconds to acknowledge the land that you are on as the traditional homeland of the Indigenous Peoples.”
This is one of the most nauseating forms of virtue signaling. Acknowledge it, and then what? I notice none of these palefaces ever get off that land.
