(THE TRUTH PATRIOTS) – Seattle schools are poised to invest more taxpayer dollars to fund “racial equity” programs including a program that refers to black male students as “Kings.”
Public education officials in the Democrat-run Washington city have proposed that schools receive more funding for various Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs than core academic subjects like math and science. As detailed by the Washington Free Beacon, Seattle Public Schools will spend more than $5 million on the DEI programs including a “racial equity analysis tool” as well as an after-school program directed toward black male students who are referred to as “Kings.”

The so-called “Kingmakers of Seattle” is “an elective program for Black male middle school and high school students, referred to as Kings, taught by Black male facilitators. Kingmakers supports the cultural, historical, social, and emotional needs of young Black boys and teens as it relates to their identity. The program is offered at four SPS schools: Aki Kurose, Asa Mercer, and Denny International Middle Schools and Interagency Academy,” Seattle Public Schools explains.
