English teacher Dana Stangel-Plowe resigned after seven years at a New Jersey prep school because of the school’s critical race ideology. She wrote a letter to Dwight-Englewood School’s brass.
In the past, Stangel-Plowe claimed there were two occasions where the Head of School said if he could fire the entire faculty and replace them with people of color, he would. The English teacher said instances like this contributed to a culture of hostility and fear.
“I reject D-E’s essentialist, racialist thinking about myself, my colleagues, and my students,” Stangel-Plowe wrote. “D-E claims that we teach students how to think, not what to think. But sadly, that is just no longer true.”
“The school’s ideology requires students to see themselves not as individuals, but as representatives of a group, forcing them to adopt the status of privilege or victimhood,” she went on. “As a result, students arrive in my classroom accepting this theory as fact: People born with less melanin in their skin are oppressors, and people born with more melanin in their skin are oppressed. Men are oppressors, women are oppressed, and so on.”

UPSET: Sen. Sinema of AZ switches to Independent, closing Dems Senate majority
Just days after Democrats officially took control over the United States Senate after Democrat Raphael Warnock beat Republican Herschel Walker in the Georgia senate seat runoff, in comes Senator Kyrsten Sinema.
Arizona Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced Friday that she has officially left the Democratic Party and has registered as an Independent. Sinema’s decision officially took the Democrats from a 51 to 49 majority in the Senate, to a closer 50 to 49, with Sinema as the single Independent.
Sinema made her huge announcement in an op-ed for the local media outlet Arizona Central. “I have joined the growing numbers of Arizonans who reject party politics by declaring my independence from the broken partisan system in Washington,” she stated.
The New York Post reports that “Sinema, in a separate Politico interview published Friday, said she would not caucus with the Republican Party. If that holds, Democrats could still maintain greater control in the closely divided chamber.”
Prior to the hard-fought Georgia race, Democrats had held the Senate 50-50 with Vice President Kamala Harris holding a tie-breaking vote.
