Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Bari Weiss Slammed for Praising Parent’s ‘Racist’ Letter to Elite Private School”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former columnist at the New York Times Bari Weiss, has been lambasted on Twitter after praising a letter from a parent at Brearley, an elite New York private school, that said he was pulling his daughter from the school due to the schools “antiracism initiatives.”

The $54,000 a year all-girls school in Manhattan’s Upper East Side now asks students to take an “anti-racism pledge.”

The letter focused on the school’s emphasis on teaching about systematic racism in America. The father claimed, “We have not had systemic racism against Blacks in this country since the civil rights reforms of the 1960s.”

He continued by calling the school’s antiracism policies “misguided, divisive, counterproductive and cancerous.”

This is not the first time Weiss has waded into the muddy waters of the cancel culture debate. She very publicly left the NYT op-ed editorial staff over claims that the paper was too beholden to critics on Twitter. Her new Substack newsletter frequently focuses on cancel culture-related topics.
