Denver Public School Hosts Segregated Playground Night; Guests Invite Determined By Race

Every day it becomes more apparent that Progressive are the real racists. Nothing proves that point more than the news that a Denver, Colorado elementary school advertised a “families of color playground night” hosted on the school playground. If you are white, you need not come.

According to Christopher Rufo, who first reported the segregated playground night, Centennial Elementary scheduled the playdate for October 13, but due to concerns for Covid, the organizers decided to postpone the event. It shouldn’t shock you the same people who believe that Covid is still a risk are the same ones who say segregated events aren’t racist.

The advertisement for the event was shared on the Centennial Facebook page and organized by white female Nicole Tembrock, the school’s “Dean of Culture.”

According to the Event:

“All parents and caretakers, Centennial leadership, and the Diversity and Inclusivity Committee welcome you to join us Wednesday, October 6, 6-7:30 pm for an introduction to this year’s Community Equity Collective! In this first session, we will introduce the Equity Book Study and Equity Discussions, which will alternate each month. We will be meeting the first Wednesday of every month. The book we will be reading this year is How We Show Up: Reclaiming Family, Friendship, and Community by Mia Birdsong, which we will discuss in November, January, March, and May. In alternating months, we will discuss another resource, topic, or equity-related theme. This first month, we will focus on getting to know each other and learning about how we can contribute to equity at Centennial.”

The school advertised more ways the community could participate in Centennial’s plan for an equitable school, including the October 13 Families of Color Playground Night. According to the school’s Facebook page, the segregated meet-ups will continue on the second Wednesday of every month (weather permitting).

A University of Denver law professor, Dave Kopel, reacted to Christopher Rufo’s reporting claiming that the school is violating the Colorado Constitution by promoting racially segregated playdates. Kopel cited the Colorado Constitution, “In violation of Colorado Constitution Article IX, Sec. 8: ‘Nor shall any distinction or classification of pupils be made on account of race of color.”

After publications ran with the story, Rufo says the school district confirmed Centennial is holding racially segregated playground dates but claims it’s for inclusion.
