Ketanji Brown Jackson Is A Trustee At School That Hosts Racially Segregated ‘Affinity Groups’ For Middle-Schoolers


Georgetown Day School, where Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson is a member of the board of trustees, hosts racially segregated clubs, euphemistically referred to as “affinity groups,” for middle- and high-schoolers.

GDS describes these racially segregated groups as “safe spaces.” The website says that “most” of them are open to “allies” but goes on to define an affinity group as “​​a group whose members share a particular identity,” continuing to note that the groups “can help identify, interpret, interrupt and dismantle sources of oppression or discrimination.”

The only two middle-school affinity groups are for “Students of Color Mentoring,” which exclude white students. The description for the middle-school mentoring program reads:

“The MS SOC Mentoring Program continues to provide community support for any and all students who identify as Black/African/African-American, Asian/Asian-American, Middle-Eastern/Middle-Eastern American, Native-American/Native/American Indian, Latinx/Hispanic, and/or of Bi-racial/Multi-racial descent.”

Some of the high-school affinity groups include Spectrum, a club for LGBT students, and others for specific ethnic and racial backgrounds. There are also clubs called Young Women of Color and Young Men of Color, which are both open to all students of the respective sex except for white people.

One group, called “Feminisms for those Marginalized by Gender,” embraces left-wing lies about sex and gender when it erroneously claims that “gender is neither binary nor fixed.”

There are even affinity groups for parents, including one for LGBT parents and others for black, Asian, and Hispanic parents.

The Georgetown Day School is one of multiple private schools affiliated with the left-wing National Association of Independent Schools that hosts racially segregated affinity groups in the name of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The Federalist previously revealed that Georgetown Day School hosted critical race theorist Denisha Jones to speak with pre-k students about the Black Lives Matter Week of Action. The campaign, which Jones helps lead, is intended to turn children into vehicles for left-wing activism on issues surrounding sex and race.

Georgetown Day School did not return a request for comment.
