The Jimmy Carter Prize: Glenn Singleton

Pictured Above: Glenn Singleton,

We are proud to announce that we are awarding Glenn Singleton the Jimmy Carter Prize for the Advancement of Douchbagery. Mr. Singleton is a "diversity consultant" who is paid upwards of $100,000 per seminar by school districts, city governments and corporations to create a "multicultural curriculum." Mr. Singleton's douchebagery only came to the public's attention when the Seattle school's policy of assigning students to schools with the goal of "promote diversity" was challenged by the supreme court. Here is a sample of Mr. Singleton's douchebagery:

1. The "brave conversations" that his seminars mandate are profoundly undemocratic and do not allow participants to diverging from pre-conceived conclusions, such as "only whites can be racist" and "the most devastating factor contributing to the lowered achievement of students of color is institutionalized racism" and "a curriculum tooled for whites, and are ignorant of the special ways that blacks and Hispanics communicate."

2. Paradoxically he promotes racism and stereotyping through beliefs such as "White talk” is “verbal, impersonal, intellectual” and “task-oriented,” while “color commentary” is “nonverbal, personal, emotional” and “process-oriented.”

3. He defines cultural racism as "Those aspects of society that overtly and covertly attribute value and normality to white people and Whiteness...Examples of these norms include defining having a future time orientation, emphasizing individualism as opposed to a more collective ideology...and identifying only Whites as great writers or composers.

4. Presenting baseless beliefs like "Asians are majority students" who only do better because "of the high expectations of their white teachers."

5. His seminar states that: “anger, guilt and shame are just a few of the emotions” whites should expect to experience “as they move toward greater understanding of Whiteness.”

Perhaps the single most revolting aspect of Mr. Singleton's program is that there is zero evidence that his racist seminars have narrowed the persistent, damaging performance gap between of minority students. If anything is has detracted valuable time and resources that could have been used to promote real academic achievement and not marxist, multicultural indoctrination.


  1. Fantastic bit of information. I've begun a Reverse Racism Vlog, EndReverseRacism on Youtube. I have taken articles from and I even posted this blog (with proper credit) on my Facebook Group "I bet I can find 1,000,000 people who are sick of reverse racism".

    Continue the fine work, and please let me know if you unearth any other saps like Glenn Singleton. I'll be subscribing to this blog and following it.

    You can reach me via Facebook, my Youtube Channel and so forth.


  2. Are you a Tea Party member? Have you ever worked in a school? Have you ever listened to one of Glenn's seminars? Your answers are probably yes, no and no. You are a douchebag and part of the problem in this country. You make me embarrassed to be white.

  3. Stumbling across this statement over a year since it has been posted. I have to agree that it is complete b.s. because I witness this every day in the school systems that I have worked in and the communities I have lived in. What do you say to people who do spout racist remarks? Do you applaud them, or do you also give them an award of douchbagery? If you answered "no" to the latter than you are a racist and would therefore be predictably against Glenn Singleton's work. That is a large part of what keeps students of color at a disadvantage in today's society. Shame on you!

  4. I stumbled across this post several years after it was written, and all I can say is YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD! Our district just sat through an inservice driven by this man's video lectures and it was absurd. I didn't feel "guilt and shame," but I certainly felt angry that I was giving three hours of my life away that I'd never get back listening to quite possibly THE most racist man I've ever heard of. He was actually at one of our schools that day and gave a presentation to a group of teachers. So many of them were so offended that they took the story to one of the local news stations. Rightly so, the yahoos who scheduled this man's appearance and required the rest of us to undergo "diversity training" via video are catching a lot of flack about it. If we're required to attend more of these video sessions, I'll gladly take the docked pay in place of being there.

  5. Hey Mr. Unknown. You have a lot of nerve working in a public school and thinking that there in not advantages for being White. I am an educator working in San Jose California and Glenn's methods have allowed so many of my students of color to graduate and move on to college ready to make something of themselves. Take another look at the people in decision making positions both at the school site and the district level. Not much diversity there. I am assuming that your are one of those teachers who only do extra work at after school if you get some kind of recognition and you probably blame all parents for your student's failures. Best of luck to you in you career endeavors. I am sure that there is a great charter school waiting for a culturally ignorant teacher like you. I hope my daughters never end up in your classroom.
