    “As we sit here today, [racism] is still woven into the fabric of our homes, communities, schools, government, economic system, healthcare, and so much more,” the “Fistbook for Kids” states. “As a matter of fact, it would be difficult to find one facet of our society where racism does not exist.”

    “White supremacy isn't the shark, it's the ocean,” it goes on.

    The students were given their “fistbook” as “part of this work” to “continue the dialogue at school and home,” according to the letter of school director Danielle Singh, which links to a talk by Doyin Richards, who is the “Anti-Racism Fight Club” purveyor.

    Richards' “Fistbook for Kids” was used to teach kids the notion that “white people are a part of a society that benefits them in almost every instance,” adding the idea that “it's as if white people walk around with an invisible force field because they hold all of the power in America.”

    “We recognize that any time we engage topics such as race and equity, we may experience a variety of emotions,” Singh's letter continued. “This is a normal part of the learning and growing process. As a school community we want to continue the dialogue with our students and understand this is just the beginning.” 

    The “fistbook” tells children that “it's not your fault for having white privilege, but it is your fault if you choose to ignore it” is a popular notion in the world of critical race theorists, who want to teach children to join the social class from an early age.

    In fact, “anti-racism” — the term used to secretly refer to the theory of critical race “isn't a spectator sport,” since it demands its followers “being loud, uncomfortable, confrontational, and visible to ensure change is made.”

    The book urged youngsters to examine themselves and find out if they are racist and guilty of discrimination, which “requires true soul searching,” but, is in the end, “the first step in becoming an anti-racist.”

    Critical race theorists frequently seek to sow seeds of division between parents and their children, and Richards’ book appears as if it is no exception. This is evident in an area titled, “How to deal with racism from loved ones.”

    “Just because someone is older than you doesn't mean that they're right all of the time,” the document states. “If someone doesn't believe that people should be treated equally based on the color of their skin, then they are the problem. Parents need to stop making excuses for that behavior if they truly believe in anti-racism.”

    In this case, Critical Race theorists try to convince children to be unsure of the morals of their parents by labeling them as racists as long as they are not actively “anti-racist.” 

    “Who in your family has racist beliefs?” It asks children. “Do you think you can change their ways? What is your strategy for dealing with them?”

    As per Fox News, the original “fistbook” — perhaps intended for an older audience, states the following: “your feelings about Colin Kaepernick serve as a great barometer of how you would feel about Dr. King” and “if the police don't murder citizens without penalty, then the riots/looting don't happen.”

    “If you hate Kaepernick now, you'd hate Dr. King if he was alive today,” it states. “And do you know what's funny? In 50 years from now, white people will probably talk glowingly of Kaepernick as they are with Dr. King now. Stop using his quotes to benefit your racism.”

    The school claims that the initial “fistbook” was not given to students, however, they stated that the book was provided as part of the “joyful and rigorous” academic experience to Fox News, and they ensured that D.C. Public Schools “is committed to advancing educational equity.”
