Critical Race Theory (CRT) is touted by Liberals as a necessary WOKE transition for America’s school curriculum. It shapes America’s cultural and historical issues through the lens of 18th and 19th century slavery. The claim is that slavery still creates inequity for Black people to this day.
Should little children be told that they are white supremacists simply because they were born with white skin? Should people of color be indoctrinated to feel like they are perpetual victims in need of savior “allies”?
My broadcast brother Dr. Ricky Jones suggests that people who oppose CRT are racists liars mirroring the sentiments of white supremacists.
Others see CRT as an insidious indoctrination of Marxist and socialist values foisted upon young student minds.

Virginia school teacher Lilit Vanetsyan is completely opposed to CRT which many of her peers embrace. She encourages parents and students to “Don’t give up. Challenge the staff when you are presented with a ludicrous statement. Do not allow anybody to tell you that you cannot accomplish anything because of your skin color or to hate yourself because of your skin color. It is up to you to be the next generation of victims or victors.”

TEACHER Vanetsyan: I’m a Fairfax County Public School teacher and I am going to give a message of encouragement to parents and teachers of students who are too afraid to come to speak forth. Parents, the longer that you wait and you don’t hold your child’s schools accountable gives these guys (points to school board) more time to dictate what’s best for your child’s physical, emotional, and mental health.
Don’t be afraid to speak out for your kids because they are voiceless and they rely on you. You should be afraid of them rooting for socialism by the time they get to middle school.
Teachers, it may seem that our careers have come to a dead-end but I am here to remind you that we don’t work for the school board, we work to mold the next generation of well-rounded American patriots. So don’t give up because it is up to us.
Students, you are on the frontlines of these indoctrination camps. Challenge the staff when you are presented with a ludicrous statement and do not allow anybody to tell you that you can not accomplish anything because of your skin color or to hate yourself because of your skin color.
Students, it is up to you to be the next generation of victors or victims.
And, finally, to the board, this isn’t over.

The residual effects of slavery are a real factor in the lives of millions of Black people and their non-Black family and friends. Those are issues that all Americans must face with eyes wide open.
It’s not as simple as asking people to choose a label in the victims vs. victors concept. It’s also not as simple as declaring whiteness as evil or supremacist.
Nuance has been lost in pursuit of polarizing virtue signaling vs. love-it-or-leave-it hardheadedness.
Louisville poet Hannah Drake has a compelling visual project coming to the banks of the Ohio River that amplifies the city’s nefarious role in slavery.
I think it’s a brilliant concept and enlightening for those who are in denial about Kentucky’s “neutral” position during the Civil War.
From @maggiepjones: “When artists and community leaders talk about @HannahDrake628, they almost inevitably bring up her generosity… She is imprinted on the city.” #Louisville #UnKnownProject #Juneteenth

Teach it, preach it. But stop pointing at little children as white supremacists. Over $22 trillion has been spent in booster programs for Black Americans in the past half century. The effort and recognition has been in place since the Great Society programs of the 1960s.
Let’s keep seeding more programs and stop going at each others’ throats. E pluribus unum.
