A senior official in the Pentagon‘s education wing who has written books on anti-racism has a history of mocking white people on Twitter, recently-resurfaced posts revealed on Tuesday.
Kelisa Wing is the chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer in the Department of Defense’s Education Activity office, which oversees schooling for children of Pentagon employees including active duty service members.
But before she landed the role, Wing made a few controversial social media posts including one that disparaged a woman for stating that black people ‘can be racist too.’
She’s also listed as an author on several progressive children’s books in a series called ‘Racial Justice In America.’
One book is called ‘What Is White Privilege,’ while another is ‘What Does it Mean To Defund the Police?’
The former has lines such as: ‘If you are White you might feel bad about hurting others or you might feel afraid to lose this privilege.’
It also asks white children to consider if they will ‘really feel good at the end of the race when you look back and see others fighting obstacles that you didn’t even have?’
But the main controversy is with Wing’s now-private Twitter account.
