If you thought the San Francisco school system couldn’t get anymore woke after concluding that they needed to rename the Abraham Lincoln High School because “he didn’t demonstrate that Black Lives Mattered To Him“…along comes Ingrid Seyer-Ochi.

Ingrid Seyer-Ochi, a San Francisco high school teacher wrote an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle claiming that the mittens worn by ultra-progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders ‘manifest white privilege’.

Seyer-Ochi, a former UC Berkeley professor, wrote that the Vermont senator’s choice of recycled wool mittens was integrated into her class discussion on US diversity and discrimination.

Initially, on Inauguration Day, Seyer-Ochi said her class talked about the deeper meanings of the historic day — including “the vulnerability of democracy” and “the power of ritual” and gender.

Sanders, the teacher said, was not even on their radar until he became an instant internet sensation for his mittens and brown parka Seyer-Ochi wrote, adding:

“I puzzled and fumed as an individual as I strove to be my best possible teacher. What did I see? What did I think my students should see?” 

“A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.”

The senator, she said, “manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege, and class privilege, in ways that my students could see and feel.”

Seyer-Ochi said in the op-ed that many people without privilege would not be able to dress as Sanders did on such an occasion.

“I don’t know many poor, or working-class, or female, or struggling-to-be-taken-seriously folk who would show up at the inauguration of our 46th president dressed like Bernie,” 

Seyer-Ochi Had Many On Social media Scratching Their Heads.
