Reading, Writing… and Critical Race Theory

Remember when the base of any primary education was reading, writing, and arithmetic? The liberals want everyone to pay for the sins of our forefathers. Although the country has made considerable strides to erase our racist past with slave owners, liberals feel as though we still have a long way to go.

According to the left-wing, the U.S. is a country rooted in systemic racism.

A look around would prove that isn’t true. We have people of color in all areas of government – mayors, governors, representatives, senators, and even a currently sitting VP.

People of color have the same opportunities in all areas of life – voting, attending college, becoming business owners, and running for office.

Where is the systemic racism that the liberals speak of?

The president of the American Federation of Teachers Teacher Union has decided that we all need to learn about oppression in America.

Critical Race Theory (CRT) and the 1619 project should be a part of standard learning in the classroom according to Randi Weingarten.

Critical race theory is the practice of interrogating race and racism. It is based on the idea that legal institutions and the law itself are inherently racist and that white people further themselves economically and politically at the expense of people of color.

Meanwhile, the 1619 project is designed to reframe U.S. history by placing slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the center of the nation’s narrative.

Essentially, Weingarten, the president of the teacher’s union, is looking to ensure that children are taught that they are racist and, then, lie to them about American history.

We cannot change history. We can only learn from it. Were slaves a part of our history? Yes. Did it also help to contribute to where we are today? Again, yes.

Weingarten and others behind pushing Critical Race Theory and the 1619 project want to pretend as though we’re not learning about the contributions of black people in history. Every student learns about these contributions – and we learn about significant people who were of color – Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, and countless others.

We cannot rewrite history, however. The hard truth that liberals have to understand is that our forefathers were white. Each and every person who contributed to the Declaration of Independence was white. The reason we are not under the rule of England today is because of individuals like George Washington, John Adams, and Alexander Hamilton.

Children should not be learning about Critical Race Theory because it teaches a deeper level of racism. It involves everyone identifying a person’s race immediately and determining how that person should be treated based on their race.

CRT is one of the most racist tools out there – and the liberals don’t even see it.

The Biden administration has taught liberals that they can redefine works to fit their agendas. And, it seems that the liberals have chosen to redefine ‘racism’ so that it only impacts people of color.

Identifying every white person as inherently racist is racist in and of itself. Demanding that black people be treated differently/better because of the color of their skin is also racist.

And this is what the head of the teachers’ union wants to teach in the classroom.

Allum Bokhari of Breitbart News has summed up why Critical Race Theory is a problem: “Critical race theory is the leftist, racist doctrine that forms the intellectual underpinnings of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other radical organizations currently engaged in unrest on America’s streets.”

It’s why Mitch McConnell and 38 other Republicans have asked the Secretary of Education to remove the 1619 project from taxpayer-funded grant programs. It’s also why former President Trump directed the White House Office of Management and Budget to both identify and eliminate any trace of CRT in the federal government.

Critical race theory is not only radical but also divisive. It is considerably more racist than the systemic racism that liberals accuse is everywhere. Look around. The country is diverse – and CRT should stay far away from public schools across the nation.
