Pentagon equity chief praises book calling 9/11 first responders ‘menaces’ as she pushes for ‘revolution’

 A self-described “woke” Pentagon equity chief, who is currently under probe over anti-White tweets uncovered by Fox News Digital, recommended a “social justice” book for classrooms which called 9/11 first responders “menaces.”

Kelisa Wing is a diversity, equity and inclusion chief at the Pentagon’s education wing – the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA). She is involved in curriculum at DoDEA, which services over 60,000 military-connected children at 160 schools around the globe, according to a press release announcing her position in December 2021.

Fox News Digital found that on two occasions DoDEA’s diversity, equity and inclusion chief promoted the anti-police book “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates while representing herself as an employee of the Pentagon’s education wing.

Coates wrote in “Between the World and Me” about 9/11 responders, “They were not human to me. Black, white, or whatever, they were menaces of nature; they were the fire, the comet, the storm, which could — with no justification — shatter my body.”

In 2018, when Wing was a teacher, she advocated for “Between the World and Me” to be used in classrooms in an article published to “Digital Promise,” an Obama-era organization created by Congress which helps teachers monitor “stereotype threats” of students. Wing currently sits on the advisory board of the nonprofit, according to her website.

The article recommended teachers include materials from a “Social Justice Book List.” One of the anti-police books recommended was “Between the World and Me.” . . . . (read more on Fox News)
