A public school district in Massachusetts included books about “White privilege” and “Whiteness” in a recommended summer reading list for grade school students.
Belmont Public Schools, located in a Boston suburb, includes a list titled “Race, Culture, and Activism” of suggested books for students from kindergarten through fifth grade to read over the summer.

The reading list includes the book “Not my Idea: A Book About Whiteness,” in which the devil approaches the main character with a “Contract Binding you to Whiteness.”
The imaginary terms offer “stolen land,” “stolen riches” and “special favors.” It adds that “WHITENESS gets” “your soul” and “to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones and all fellow humans of COLOR.” The end contains a section for signature and notes “[l]and, riches and favors may be revoked at any time, for any reason.”
