TEARING DOWN OUR SYSTEM
Critical Race Theory states that the United States is a fundamentally racist country and that American institutions such as the Constitution, property rights, color blindness, and equal protection under the law are vestiges of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalist oppression—all of which must be overthrown in the name of “antiracism.” Ultimately, CRT and “antiracism” policies would deepen racial divisions and undermine the very institutions that are essential to addressing poverty and inequality across all racial groups. Family, work, and education have been proven to lift Americans of all racial backgrounds out of poverty, not pushing CRT.
Tragic ideologies [are] being pushed upon our children like transgenderism, grooming, critical race theory, and racial consciousness. CRT will never solve racism because CRT is racism.
While Critical Race Theory has the noble goal of pointing out racism, it turns out to be terrible for dealing with racism. Why? It believes racism is present in every aspect of life and therefore has its advocates look for it everywhere. It rejects all potential alternatives, like colorblindness, as forms of racism, making itself the only allowable game in town (which is totalitarian). It acts like anyone who disagrees with it must do so for racist and white supremacist reasons, even if those people are black (which is also totalitarian). It cannot be satisfied, so it becomes a kind of activist black hole that threatens to destroy everything it is introduced into.
CRT training sessions have nothing to do with developing “racial sensitivity.” They push a deeply ideological agenda that includes reducing people to a racial essence, segregating them, and judging them by their group identity rather than individual character, behavior and merit.
Ever since the unfortunate death of George Floyd, corporate media, virtue-signaling neighborhood leftists, and politicians have been talking about “systemic racism” in America, even though there was and still is no evidence that Floyd’s death was motivated by race. Critical Race Theory claims “racism is present in every aspect of life, every relationship, and every interaction.” Critical race theory rejects all nuances and statistics that might explain racially disparate outcomes, while well-reasoned and articulated disagreement is considered evidence of white supremacy. This radical view, even in the abstract, should concern every American who was raised to focus on the individual, not racial categories or skin color.
Lying to children and telling them “The system is stacked against you. The only way to achieve is to destroy the system” (Marxism) This denigrates meritocracy, which will destroy our culture of rewarding excellence.
A Virginia mother who grew up in communist China said, “I am very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools. You are now teaching and training our children to be social justice warriors, and to loathe our country, and our history. Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar,” the mother continued. “The communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race.”
California’s “Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum” brings critical race theory-inspired social studies lessons to K-12 classrooms across the state. The full curriculum reads like a yearlong quest to plumb the depths of every racial grievance, legitimate and otherwise, against America as a whole — and white Americans in particular. Global history, to the extent it is addressed, is repackaged as a parade of oppression, often focused solely on the pernicious racism of white people.
CRT teaches that the American values of freedom and equality are mere “camouflages” for white supremacy. The solution, according to CRT advocates such as Ibram X. Kendi, is to abolish capitalism and install a near-omnipotent federal bureaucracy with the power to nullify any law and silence political speech that isn’t “antiracist.” Left-leaning media outlets have claimed that bills in states such as Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas would ban teachers from discussing racism in the classroom. This is patently false.
The first and foremost power in any society is the control of children, because the control of children is the control of the future. This is why socialism always aims, first and foremost, to control the child. Control of children is control of the future. It’s that simple. The state knows it. The humanists know it. The Marxists know it. The Fabian-Socialists know it. The Fascists know it; and it’s time we, as Christians, knew it.
