I have listened to many videos and read many articles about “critical race theory.” It is all nonsense. Every color in the broad color spectrum is a color and no one color has privilege. No person has a choice to choose the color they are born with. To belittle one for color or exalt one for color is wrong and hideous. Racism comes in all forms, including reverse racism.
“An outgrowth of the European Marxist school of critical theory, critical race theory is an academic movement which seeks to link racism, race, and power. Unlike the Civil Rights movement, which sought to work within the structures of American democracy, critical race theorists challenge the very foundations of the liberal order, such as rationalism, constitutional law, and legal reasoning. Critical race theorists argue that American social life, political structures, and economic systems are founded upon race, which (in their view) is a social construct.
Systemic racism, in the eyes of critical race theorists, stems from the dominance of race in American life. Critical race theorists and anti-racist advocates argue that, because race is a predominant part of American life, racism itself has become internalized into the American conscience. It is because of this, they argue, that there have been significantly different legal and economic outcomes between different racial groups.” Source
This is what Black Lives Matter is selling to the masses. A bunch of lies and reverse racism. This is very damaging not just to our society, but our children.
“David Brog, former executive director of Christians United for Israel, called critical race theory a “damaging message” to children in a recent interview with Alpha News.
Brog addressed political wars, defunding the police, and the negative effects of teaching the ideas of Critical Race Theory to children on a recent episode of the Alpha News Podcast.
Brog called critical race theory a “damaging message” and explained how teaching CRT will vastly effect a child’s success in the world. To tell a child that they cannot succeed in a world that is out to get them is not helpful to that child, he said.” Source
This is another example of the sick thinking surrounding CRT …
“When I see the fury surrounding CRT, I see a country passing on its baggage to another generation of kids of all colors. I see (not only, but particularly) white parents asserting that their children don’t have to pay their dues- to wrestle with the difficult history of this country, and to learn from it so they can help build a better future. And I see the intellectual and emotional burden being placed on the backs of Black children.“
How are reparations, teaching “critical race theory,” and telling black children that white children are privileged due to the color of one’s skin changing anything? Why are we not teaching history and telling the truth in an effort to change our future instead of being doomed to repeat it or far worse?
We are all human beings and we are created equal. Teaching CRT belittles each one of us and is just another form of racism. Worse still it is hate.
