What Nickelodeon Is Doing To Your Kids Will Have You Changing The Channel!

A page titled “How Kids Can Be Allies” on Nickelodeon Parents, a website aiming to provide an educational resource relating Nickelodeon episodes to the parents of Nickelodeon fans.

The page says that American parents are racists and must instill various left-wing beliefs in their children to compensate for their prejudice.

Parents can take to help their children “continue the fight against racism and bias,” on the page that offers a “list of actions.”

“Acknowledge your own racism and racial bias. Because you live in a racist society, you hold racist ideas and beliefs. You cannot choose to not be privileged. The more aware you are of the ways in which your ideas and behaviors are shaped by race, the more effective you will be at reducing harm.” The sixth entry on the list reads as follows.

Nickelodeon’s definition of “racist” is “systemic,” with racism “structural and a part of all facets of our life, including laws, governmental policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other standards,” according to the page. This divisive racist idea has its origins in critical race theory, a philosophical school of thought.

This falls in line with the rest of the page; many of the other “actions” listed appear to be plucked straight out of a CRT handbook.

Many academics have criticized the ideas inherent in CRT — including, most notably, the theory of systemic racism — given that they are rooted in subjective interpretation rather than a more traditional academic standard of evidence and proof.

For example, speaking with The Western Journal back in February, political scientist Wilfred Reilly took exception to the idea that achievement gaps between racial groups must be due to the unseen, “structural” forces of “systemic racism.”

Reilly told The Western Journal, “It is simply not the case that any gap in performance (such as SAT scores) between two populations has to be due to racism. In fact, while no one denies some bigotry endures, it is remarkable that an argument so demonstrably untrue has reached such an uncritical level of near-global acceptance.”

“As Thomas Sowell pointed out literally decades ago, groups which vary in terms of major traits like race (or sex) also often vary in terms of almost everything else. One group might simply study more for the SAT than most others, for cultural reasons — and adjusting for this sort of thing almost always reduces or eliminates the massive gaps which some would like to attribute to racism.”

Furthermore, if the theory of “systemic racism” were true, it would follow that white Americans are the most advantaged and highest-achieving racial group. Reilly was quick to point out the fact that this is simply not the case.

Reilly said, “The wealthiest group of Americans is not Anglo-Saxon ‘WASPs’ — or Jews as is often claimed — but Indian Americans, with a median household income of $135,816. Taiwanese Americans come in second place, at $102,405.”

“All in all, seven of the 10 highest-earning groups — Indians, Taiwanese, Filipinos, Indonesians, Pakistanis, Iranians and Lebanese Americans — are not ‘white’ as this term is generally conceptualised. Another Top 10 group — South Africans, with $98,212 — consists of white and black immigrants, who both seem to do quite well away from their homeland’s quarrels.”

Despite the apparent lack of evidence supporting these ideas, many American corporations, including Nickelodeon, continue to promote them.

As a result, one of the most popular children’s television stations is now telling parents that because they are American, they must be racist.
