CNN gave airtime to an ‘anti-racist activist' who suggested that white children should not be allowed to have an ‘innocent' childhood, but rather be made to feel guilty about their ‘white privilege' at an early age.
CNN host Poppy Harlow cited a letter sent to her from a school directing white parents how to teach their kids about their ‘white privilege', and asked Tim Wise "When should parents do this with their kids and how?"
Wise responded that it should be at as young an age as possible, and that white kids need to be repeatedly told they are over privileged in order to sufficiently indoctrinate them.
"I think the important thing for white parents to keep in the front of our mind is that if black children in this country are not allowed innocence and childhood without fear of being killed by police or marginalized in some other way, then our children don't deserve innocence." Wise proclaimed.
"If Tamir Rice can be shot dead in a public park playing with a toy gun, something white children do all over this country every day without the same fear of being shot, if Tamir Rice can be killed, then white children need to be told at least at the same age, if they can't be innocent, we don't get to be innocent." Wise continued.
"If we could keep that in the front of our minds, then perhaps we would be able to hear what black and brown folks are telling us every day and have been for many years." he added.
