The anti-racist activist sent a letter to CNN, which was quoted on the air. He suggested depriving white children of a serene, guilt-free childhood. In his opinion, it is necessary to make them feel guilty for their "white privileges" from an early age.
CNN host Poppy Harlow read a letter sent to her from an American school and asked expert Tim Wise, "When should parents start doing this with their children and how?" The expert replied that this should be done from the very childhood, and that white children need to constantly reiterate that they are in too privileged position - in order to quickly instill this feeling of guilt in them.
Wise said white parents need to remember that if black children in the United States are not allowed to have a happy childhood without guilt and fear of being killed by the police or in danger of being bullied in some other way, then white children do not deserve an innocent childhood either. Wise also spoke on CBS last Monday, where he said that white Americans have always been "taught to despise blacks."
