Critical Race Theory and Anti-Racism?
A school curriculum that focuses on skin color.
Critical Race Theory:
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic and legal movement that originated in the 1970s. Built on the identitarian framework of Marxism, it was formulated to examine and critique the ways in which America’s institutions ostensibly uphold and perpetuate racism and oppression. It operates under the assumption that America is structurally racist. Its theorists claim that any and all forward progress America has made in overcoming our country’s history of racism has been to benefit white America and has actually detracted from real racial progress. Anti-Racism is a product of CRT that advances the idea that all disparities between racial groups are necessarily a result of racism. It preaches racist discrimination to correct for racist discrimination, thus insulting MLK's vision for America.
We believe that every person is more than the color of their skin and demand that children be free from the tactics of this poisonous ideology.
CRT attacks the political system upon which America is founded. While the civil rights movement assumes that equality, especially legal equality, is possible, necessary, and good, CRT posits that equality is an illusion, impossible, and ultimately a pretense for benefiting white people and oppressing non-whites. CRT also rejects constitutional neutrality (the idea that the Constitution is ultimately, when practiced properly, in the interests of every group), color blindness, meritocracy, and attacks the very idea of rights.
Most troubling and damaging, critical race theory uses racial filters and race-shaming to impose its viewpoint on susceptible young students.
The ultimate division bell.
“The only remedy to racist discrimination is anti-racist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.”
- Ibram X Kendi's anti-racist policy agenda
Ibram X Kendi endorses discrimination against you and your children. We subscribe to Chief Justice John Roberts' common sense method of ending discrimination:
“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”
We want every child to receive a fact and content-based education, free from racially biased materials and assignments. We acknowledge that America has a painful history of not living up to the ideals proclaimed in our Constitution and expect that those historical topics will and should be taught in classrooms. However, materials and teaching strategies and techniques must be free of race-shaming, race-blaming, and racially-biased interpretations and political viewpoints.
We would never allow race-shaming to be used against a black student. Neither should we tolerate it being used against a white child.
