It’s important that we understand what’s being peddled to our children as consciousness raising or wokeness as they now call it. Critical Race Theory as now being taught in our schools is nothing more than self-loathing with roots in Maoist doctrine using subterfuge to mobilize, polarize, divide and control, to make the populace more malleable to the state’s edicts. The core idea is, the state knows what’s good for us and the state is in charge of your children, not you, that the state is the ultimate parent and they should determine how and what your children are taught, that the state knows better.
A troubling trend has educators and school boards across the country leaning this way, in essence saying that parents should stay home and mind their own business, that the job of educating is the state’s domain, not yours, and parents shouldn’t interfere. And if you disagree, according to the latest declaration of the criminal justice system, you are essentially a terrorist to be dealt with under the American Patriot Act, guilty of dissent and subject to federal prosecution as an enemy of the state.
There’s an inherent wrongness and danger in this and a larger threat to all of us and our freedoms, the right to raise your children according to your faith and personal beliefs, not the state’s. Most responsible black leaders and community organizers don’t agree with Critical Race Theory being taught in our schools. They see it as damaging and harmful and doing nothing to advance race relations. CRT teaches shame, that because you are white you are culpable. It’s reverse racism; you are guilty by color. This is not a good lesson for your kids, and when parents dig deeper into what is being promoted as racial equity, they see that it’s just a new spin on Maoist propaganda. Find out what your kids are being taught in school. You have a right to know and a right to your voice. By your silence and complicity, the state assumes all power. Let your voice be heard.
