School superintendent: White people have to ‘rewire their brains’ due to implicit biases

A Massachusetts school superintendent told a community audience on Tuesday that white people in our “systematically corrupt system that oppresses black individuals” need to “rewire their brains” in order to overcome their biases. Pittsfield Public Schools chief Jason McCandless (who’s white) also blasted President Trump, saying that the commander-in-chief’s words “are being used to divide,” and that he “preaches hate on a daily basis … which is utterly unacceptable.” McCandless’s comments were reported in a Berkshire Eagle story about his district’s plan to pilot black history courses this fall. The courses taught at two district high schools, Pittsfield and Taconic, will focus not only on black oppression, but the “contributions black people have made to society,” according to teacher Jamal Ahmad. McCandless added that Pittsfield is working to better a system which has “long has overlooked the work and contributions of people of color.”
