US Education official hired by Joe Biden claims democracy is based on ‘white supremacy’ and reveals she ‘tunes out white people’s voices’ in series of unearthed tweets

  • A Dep of Education official linked Evangelical Christians with white supremacy 
  • Kristina Ishmael said in now-hidden tweets that tunes out white voices
  • Ishmael argued that fatphobia was also a product of white supremacy
  • She is a deputy director in the Office of Educational Technology

A US Department of Education deputy director appointed under Biden said on Twitter that democracy is based on ‘white supremacy’ and revealed she ‘tunes out white people’s voices’ in series of unearthed tweets. 

Kristina Ishmael is the deputy director in the Office of Educational Technology – and her office implements policies for ‘equity of access’ to technology.

But despite her job role, Ishmael said in tweets, seen by Fox News, that she walked away from a discussion because ‘a white male dominated the conversation.’

She made her profile private on Monday after her tweets – which also displayed bias against Evangelical Christians – were discovered by the news website.

‘[Democracy is] also built on white supremacy, which I see perpetuated in education circles when BIPOC folx are being told they’re too negative by addressing real issues instead of superlatives,’ she said in tweets seen by Fox.

Ishmael also responded ‘Amen’ to a tweet that said that the Evangelical church welcomed ‘hate’ and ‘white supremacy’ into its institution. It is estimated that around 30 to 35 percent of the American population are Evangelical Christians.

In one tweet, Ishmael also cast doubt on whether White gay men deserved to be considered a marginalized category in school curriculums, according to Fox.

She also said that the school curriculum was largely written from a white perspective.

‘[M]ost of my curriculum was written from a very narrow and white perspective,’ she was reported as saying. 

She reiterated her point about the bias of school curriculum by claiming: ‘As a teacher, how many times have you been asked to uphold white supremacy through dominant-culture norms.’

Ishmael also tried to suggest that fatphobia was an attitude rooted in white supremacy. 

She said: ‘Learning to be comfortable in my own skin & weight and really ready to reject the White supremacist ideal body? F**k yes.’

‘Fatphobia is real. The ‘ideal’ weight, shape & look is white supremacy baked into our everyday lives. I’m so over it. We deserve more than diets,’ she added.

DailyMail.com have reached out to Ishmael for comment.   

On Twitter, Ishmael also declared that she was fan of Ibram X. Kendi, the founding director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research.

She said: ‘[Shoutout] to [Dr. Kendi] as this group of educators talk about culturally responsive pedagogy and specific references made to segregationists, assimilationists, and antiracists. Have learned SO much from Dr. Kendi about this and how it applies to our field.’ 

Kendi wrote a 2003 column about ‘Living with the White Race.’ 

In it he said: ‘Europeans are simply a different breed of human… They are socialized to be aggressive people… They are raised to be racist.’

In that column Kendi also suggested white people are worried about their own ‘extinction’.

He accused them of trying ‘to level the playing field with the AIDS virus and cloning, but they know these deterrents will only get them so far.’

‘This is where the murder, psychological brainwashing and deception comes into play,’ he said.

Wing, an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter and Defund the Police movements, is also an author penning several progressive books in a series called 'Racial Justice In America'

As a children’s book author, Wing helped write several books under a series titled ‘What Is White Privilege’

This comes as social media posts came to the surface from the chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer in the Department of Defense’s Education Activity office Kelisa Wing.

Wing, who works in the Pentagon, is listed as an author on several progressive children’s books in a series called ‘Racial Justice In America.’

One book is called ‘What Is White Privilege,’ while another is ‘What Does it Mean To Defund the Police?’

In her book she asks white children to consider if they will ‘really feel good at the end of the race when you look back and see others fighting obstacles that you didn’t even have?’
