In Modules No. 1 and No. 2 of the Williamson County Schools Cultural Competency video series, teachers are told the term “illegal alien” is “oppressive.”
But that’s just one example among many of a leftist, politically correct narrative that school system officials try to drill into their teachers through these videos.
“For example, assuming that a person from South America has ever tasted a taco or an enchilada is a way we might tokenize or appropriate Latino culture,” an off-screen female narrator warns teachers.
Another supposed nugget of wisdom the narrator passes down:
“Using coded language like ‘ghetto,’ ‘thug,’ or even ‘helicopter parents’ can fuel biased behavior and unintentionally reinforce stereotypes,” the narrator said.
“It is important to be careful and precise regarding word choice when communicating with students and their families.”
The narrator continues her fixation on race by telling teachers never to assume Asians are math prodigies or that other groups possess stereotypical characteristics.
“Culture goes far beyond race, country of origin, or even ethnicity and can include the total way of life of a particular group of people, including systems, attitudes, beliefs, and feelings,” the narrator added.
The Tennessee Star obtained Modules No. 1 and No. 2 by filing an open records request with Williamson County Schools. Both videos run about 16 minutes each.

The Star obtained Module No. 3 last week, which you can watch here.
As reported, Module No. 3 tried to indoctrinate teachers on how to teach students about “white privilege.”
The in-service training video, this one 26 minutes, profiled several people whom the video described as “Williamson County Voices.”
The video did not identify anyone, nor did it make clear if these people are school system employees or county residents not formally affiliated with the school system. One man, though, identified himself as a school administrator.
In the video, they and the narrator discussed social justice causes, the perks white males supposedly have that others do not, America’s supposed dysfunctional history, and how unfair it all is.
Later, the narrator told viewers “that white individuals do enjoy unearned advantages that society does not necessarily offer to individuals of color.”
“The concept of intersectionality recognizes that skin color privilege is one of the many different types of privilege that can impact the way people move through the world,” the narrator continued.”
“Oppressive institutions, such as racism, classism, sexism, and homophobia are often interconnected in the varying degrees with which people hold privilege and power,” the narrator said.
