The Seattle Office of Civil Rights has developed a curriculum on ''race and social justice'' that is reportedly designed for white employees only, according to training documents obtained by independent journalist Christopher Rufo.

The material contains a PowerPoint presentation called Institutionalized Racial Superiority for white people. The course instructs employees on how to ''process white feelings'' such as ''sadness, shame, paralysis, confusion, and denial.''

Trainers require white participants to examine their ''relationships with white supremacy, racism, and whiteness'' and ''how their white fragility'' is demonstrated at work.

Another document includes two separate lists of traits indicative of "internalized racial superiority," including perfectionism, individualism, and intellectualization, and "internalized racial inferiority," such as ethnocentrism and anti-blackness.
