In Virginia, a college that is part of the Fairfax County Public Schools tried so hard to be actively anti-racist that it literally became racist.
According to a letter sent to parents regarding college prep courses, black and Hispanic students were encouraged to apply, but Asian and white students were clearly excluded.
“Do you have an 8th grader who WANTS to go to college?” said the letter sent last week. “Do they belong to one or more of these categories? They asked before listing “black or African American students” and “Hispanic, single or mixed race students,” in addition to students who would be the first in their families to attend college, people with disabilities , English learners and those living below the poverty line.
“If you do, PLEASE APPLY for the Fairfax County Partnership Program,” they asked. “A typical CCP student represents a population traditionally underrepresented in higher education.”

No need to apply
According to Asra Nomani at Fairfax Times in a tweet, “In the 20th century, the Asian Exclusion Act deprived Asians of equal opportunity. NOW, [Fairfax Country Public Schools] promotes a college-prep program with race-based admissions excluding Asians + Whites. A judge has already ruled that the FCPS violated the US Constitution in new anti-Asian admissions.
She also added that “benefits also include monetary rewards: ‘a summer experiential learning opportunity (you actually visit a college and stay on their campus!”).

“This program excludes children based on their race, and it appears to be in direct violation of the school district’s anti-discrimination policy,” said Glenn Miller, an FCPS parent and local attorney.
According The daily thread, Asians made up “19% of the 181,447 students, school district data compiled in February revealed; the 666,263 white students represent 37% of the total student population.

FCPS Promotes Critical Race Theory
Speaking of FCPS’ anti discrimination politics, let’s take a look at some of it:
“No applicant or employee on the basis of race, sex, color, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, genetic information , pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, marital status, veteran status and disability shall be denied the benefits of, or be discriminated against in the part of any educational program or activity, as required by law…”
Looks like they haven’t read it lately, because now, to promote “equality”, they’ve actually adopted discriminatory practices.
Good job FCPS, you played yourself.
This whole situation did not appear overnight, however. In 2021, the FCPS sent a power point to teachers who teach them how to integrate controversial practices of critical race theory into their own classrooms.
Presentation topics included ways for teachers to introduce students to “culturally relevant pedagogy,” “institutional/systemic racism,” “anti-racism education,” and “anti-hate education.”
The PowerPoint said, “By taking this approach, CRT researchers attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race and how they are able to represent themselves to counter prejudice.”
