Critical Race Theory: Is It in Our Schools or Not?

Critical Race Theory commonly referred to as CRT, has been a hot topic for a while now. It was seen throughout the midterms as well as in many of the school board races.

Many claim that CRT is not being taught in schools. However, there are also plenty of schools that insist that it is. And there are countless books and presentations being published about how to teach the CRT agenda and how to discuss it with parents so that it is seen as a benefit to society.

One of the reasons why CRT is dangerous is because it changes history. Schools want to take race out of things. And, they want children to learn to look at skin color so that they know how to address every person and every situation appropriately.

Essentially, we’re teaching our kids to be more racist.

Zach Goldberg is an analyst with the Manhattan Institute policy. He conducted a study where 1500 Americans were pulled between the ages of 18 and 22 to find out if they had heard about any of the four concepts of critical race theory. 82.4% of those who attended public school said they had been taught about the core teachings or had heard about them from an adult at the school.

Further, the study showed that 62% of the respondents who had either recently graduated or who had yet to graduate had been instructed about how the US is a “systemically racist country.” Perhaps even more terrifying is that at least 57% said that they were taught about how white people have “unconscious biases that negatively affect non-white people.”

What this means is that we are not only teaching that racism exists where it does not but also that white people are inherently racist – which is also not accurate.

There are a significant number of lies being spread throughout the CRT agenda. As the study shows, 69% of those who responded were taught about how “white people have white privilege.” There are countless white Americans throughout the country who have never experienced privilege.

The concept of Critical Race Theory has become so polarized that many Democrats want to distance themselves from it. As such, whenever they are asked about CRT in the classrooms, they claim that it does not exist. However, even if it isn’t being identified as CRT, it most certainly exists.

For example, if it did not exist, 53% of respondents would not have said that they were either taught or heard about how “America is a patriarchal society.” Women have been a huge part of politics since the very beginning – and many female politicians would be extremely offended if they heard that America is still being pushed as a “patriarchal” society. If that were the case, what chance would a woman ever have of making a change? People like Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris likely do not consider the US to be a patriarchal society, otherwise, they would not have been able to reach the levels that they have. Of course, they won’t admit that out loud because it goes against their party’s agenda.

Meanwhile, as more and more parents are concerned about CRT showing up in their children’s classrooms, some Democrats refused to even discuss it as a possibility. Nicholle Wallace from MSNBC made the comment during the gubernatorial race of Virginia where Glenn Youngkin won by opposing CRT, “So, I think that the real ominous thing is that critical race theory, which isn’t real, turned the suburbs 15 points to the Trump-insurrection-endorsed Republican.”

Oh, it’s real – and it’s one of the things destroying this country. So much for Biden trying to bring unity as part of his platform. It’s impossible to teach CRT and obtain unity.
