Interrupting Whiteness

City of Seattle teaches employees they must dismantle their "whiteness."

Last month, the city of Seattle held a training session for white employees called “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.” So I did a public records request to find out exactly what this means.

I acquired the following documents through a public records request. The first document explains “Internalized Racial Superiority” and how white people complicity reinforce racist systems. The second document, “Interrupting whiteness” explains how to interrupt one’s whiteness and eventually become a “white accomplice.” The third document, “Assimilation into Whiteness” explains that anyone of Jewish, Armenian, Arab, and Irish descent is now defined as white.
