In this video, a Loudoun County, Virginia public school teacher appears to be interacting with a student during a virtual class. The teacher tries to force the student to acknowledge racial differences between people and dismisses the idea that an image of two people of different races simply shows "just two people chilling."
In this video, the teacher says "I don't believe that you believe that... I don't believe that you look at this as just two people" while showing two people with different colored hair and skin on screen. "I think you are being intentionally coy about what this is a picture of."
"Right, just two people. Nothing more to that picture?" the teacher asked. "And that's all you see, two people?"
The lesson was reportedly part of a college-level English course.
"It truly is just two people though, is it not?" the student replied. "Are you trying to get me to say there are two different races?"
A recall election effort has been launched against six members of the Loudoun County school board accused of creating lists of parents who opposed the teaching of Critical Race Theory.
The group, which is called "anti-racist parents of Loudoun County," has been accused of using a hidden Facebook group to catalog so-called "racist parents."
"Yes, I am asking you to say that [the image shows two people of different races]," the teacher says eventually.
"Well, at the end of the day, wouldn't that just be feeding into the problem of looking at race instead of just acknowledging them as two normal people?" asked the student.
"No, it's not. Because you can't not look at, you can't look at the people and not acknowledge that there are racial differences," the teacher says.
