Seattle to Abolish Prisons, it’s a “White Supremacist Institution” “I’ve received a trove of leaked documents from within the King County Executive’s Office”

Seattle is quickly moving forward with its plan to “abolish prisons.”
I’ve received a trove of leaked documents from within the King County Executive’s Office claiming that the justice system is a “white supremacist institution” that must be dismantled.

The document begins by claiming that the justice system is built of a foundation of “racism,” “white fragility,” and “white supremacist culture.” They say that whites have a “need to control” and have designed “social conditions” to “oppress People of Color.”

Next, they claim that the jails are designed as “a system of oppression based on race and built to maintain white supremacy.” The plan to permanently shut down the jails is centered on the obligation to “isolate race” and “examine the presence and role of whiteness.”

Next, the government defines “white culture” as one that focuses on the corrupt and racist values of “individuality,” “meritocracy,” “linearity,” “progress,” “objectivity,” and “the written word.”

In the attached glossary, the officials claim that whites uphold “the U.S. white supremacy system,” “oppress People of Color,” and have “unearned power and privileges associated with having white skin,” which they call “Whiteism.”

The plan to close the jails is explicitly predicated on the idea that the “government [is] responsible for the problem” of crime and that criminal offenders are the true “rights holders” who must be “honor[ed] and celebrate[d].”

The executives predict that the decision to permanently close the jails will cause “stress, confusion, and a sense of overwhelm,” but ultimately “internal racism [will] come to the surface” and there will be a “shift in power structure.”
