National Private School Organization to Push Critical Race Theory at Annual Conference
The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) is set to once again push critical race theory (CRT) on America’s private schools at their annual People of Color Conference (POCC).
“BIPOC in White Spaces: Addressing the Hidden Burden of Cross-Racial Interactions” is the title of one of the sessions, which claims in its description that “Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) in predominantly white spaces often carry the burden of navigating cross-racial interactions.”
The session will focus on the anxiety that nonwhite individuals allegedly experience when interacting with their white peers. The description defines racial anxiety as “the unconscious stress response before, during, or after cross-racial interactions,” also calling it “an experience of cognitive interference and depletion.”
“White educators committed to overcoming their own racial anxiety are welcome,” it adds.
The talk will be led in part by Chap Chapman, who runs a diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) consulting group called “Chap Equity.” Chap Equity offers a number of different resources on its website, including lesson plans for children that discuss transgenderism and literature discussing “white anti-racist people and whiteness.”
The talk will also be led by another DIE consultant, Jessica MacFarlane. MacFarlane’s mission is to “mobilize white people in the collective process of unlearning, skills-building, and active anti-racism,” her website reads.
The conference, which is set to occur from November 30th to December 3rd in San Antonio, Texas, will feature a session called, “They Said What They Said! Leveraging BIPOC Student Voice to Enhance DEIJ Work in Schools.” The talk will use “youth-led social movements as a model” in order to “discuss how institutions can respond to students’ experiences and work with students to co-create equitable school cultures.”
The session will be led in part by the Wells Collective, another DIE consultant group. One member of the Wells Collective is Kalea Selmon, who Breitbart News revealed made anti-white statements in support of racial segregation at a previous POCC.
In one clip, she remarked, “it is absolutely okay to give black and brown students things you’re not giving white children,” also saying that non-white students had to be protected from the “white gaze.”
In addition, Selmon also discussed turning her students into “boots on the ground” organizers through racially segregated affinity groups.
Selmon resigned from her position as the diversity director at Maryvale Academy following the investigation from Breitbart News.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew.
