    Oregon teachers at the Errol Hassell Elementary School sent school administrators an email claiming that eye-rolling directed at a
    principal, among other alleged actions they observed, is an example of
    a "harmful practice rooted in White supremacy" that is happening in the workplace.

    The educators from the Beaverton School District said in an email on
    May 27 that they had become of aware of a "rumor" that Principal
    Cynthia Lam Moffett was on the chopping block.

    "We believe that much of the resistance to Principal Moffett’s work… is
    a result of bias and targeted aggression. As BIPOC educators we have
    observed, experienced,and witnessed similar micro and macro
    aggressions," the email said. BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and
    people of color.


    The teachers included an extensive list of "micro and macro
    aggressions." Many of them were concerning the staff's responses to the principal. It said, "Staff members rolled their eyes during… meetings
    while Principal Moffett is speaking"


    The eye-rolling staff members were probably thinking, oh my God, do we
    have to listen to this shit again.
