You’ve probably seen liberals and members of the media try to defend critical race theory in the classroom. No doubt, they talked about it being just one view of history. Perhaps they even suggested it was an effort to add a different and diverse voice in the classroom.
That’s pure manipulation and falsehood.
Because when critical race theory shows up in high school, middle school, or elementary school classrooms, it’s not presented as “just one view that a few people hold.” It’s presented as a teacher’s definitive (and strongly anti-American) view of our culture and history. It’s presented in terms of racial differences and division. And it’s presented in a way that is profoundly damaging to our children.
Like the teacher from Virginia who called the state’s disciplinary system an exercise of “white supremacy.” The program is intended to encourage “positive behaviors” in the pursuit of better educational outcomes. But the teacher in question (who is white) declared that modeling good behavior (like listening quietly to the teacher’s instructions) is fundamentally racist:
“Things like making sure that you’re following directions, and making sure that you’re sitting quietly, and you are in your seat and all these things that come from white culture,” the teacher said on TikTok. He went on to say, “So if we’re positively enforcing these behaviors, we are by extension positively enforcing elements of White culture. Which therefore keeps whiteness at the center, which is the definition of white supremacy.”
As an African-American parent, it’s hard to say whether that kind of statement makes me want to laugh or cry. It should be enough to point out that the “value” of listening to an educator without rudely disrupting class does not belong to “white culture. It’s incredibly patronizing – and flat out wrong – to suggest such a thing.
Of course, that’s not the only way that critical race theory makes its way into the classroom. It can do so in more literal ways as well. Like this classroom in California, which not only boasts a Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ+ flag, but also posters that state “F*** the Police” and “F*** Amerikkka.”
After complaints were lodged, the school district announced that the posters would be taken down as a violation of a policy that does not allow overtly political displays.
But what about the teacher who put them up? What are we to think of a teacher who brazenly advertises a belief that policing is anti-Black and that America is synonymous with genocide? It’s a safe bet that the anti-American indoctrination of critical race theory will be at home in that classroom, with or without the posters.
More than ever before, we need parents and activists to come together to fight the indoctrination of our children and the leftist takeover of our schools. Critical race theory, transgender ideology, and the other elements of the leftist agenda are making their way into school curriculums across the country.
CAAP is fighting to preserve parental rights and stop leftist indoctrination in the classroom. Recently, Deborah did a presentation about critical race theory to a local church, and was gratified by how well-received it was.
When people understand what critical race theory is and how it is affecting our culture, they understand the importance of stopping it. CAAP is dedicated to opposing the spread of this leftist ideology. We know that indoctrinating children in cancel culture and the language of victimization is profoundly damaging. But we need your help! Get involved in your local school district. Organize parents and show up at school board hearings. Let your voice be heard!
