Critical Race Theory (CRT), perhaps the most hateful ideology to strike public education in years, has tragically permeated public schools and subsequently brainwashed multiple young people across the nation to hate their country.
In essence, CRT advocates a hate-filled view of the United States, one wherein whites are always evil and blacks are perpetually disempowered. Moreover, CRT provides no solution or silver lining; instead, the only response appears to be hate and division.
Furthermore, CRT is also just a stepping stone into the hatred of other groups, including groups that apparently choose to not identify as LGBTQ.
Or, to be “politically correct,” groups that choose to not identify as part of the “2SLGBTQQIA+” agenda, whatever that is supposed to mean.
Which would certainly explain the tyranny of ultra-leftist snowflakes today, who find offense in literally anything, including someone else’s basic existence.
After all, yet another simpering college student made the news recently after whining about how “threatened” he felt by the presence of straight male students in his dorm.
The straight male students, by the way, were only in the dorm in the first place to install a radiator, but that didn’t stop a simpering, spineless college student from freaking out over the presence of heterosexual males.
“I was angry, scared, and confused …Why didn’t the College complete the installation over the summer, when the building was empty? Why couldn’t they tell us precisely when the workers would be there? Why were they only notifying us the day before the installation was due to begin?
…This anxiety was compounded by the fact that the crew would be strangers, and they were more than likely to be cisgender men.” [Source: Breitbart]
However, some prominent individuals are not at all fans of CRT, along with other forms of educational hatred, and one such individual is Condoleezza Rice.
During a recent appearance on the view, Rice ripped apart CRT for exactly what it is.
“But if I could take a moment to talk about the whole issue of Critical Race Theory and what is, and is not being taught, I come out of an academic institution, and this is something that academics debate. What is the role of race and so forth?
And let me be very clear; I grew up in segregated, Birmingham, Alabama. I couldn’t go to a movie theater, or to a restaurant with my parents. I went to segregated schools till we moved to Denver. My parents never thought I was going to grow up in a world without prejudice, but they also told me, ‘That’s somebody else’s problem, not yours. You’re going to overcome it, and you are going to be anything you want to be.’ And that’s the message that I think we ought to be sending to kids.”

In other words, Rice’s parents taught her the power of personal empowerment … the polar opposite of CRT’s message.
Then again, an empowered minority population surely won’t be voting in politicians who have a vested interest in keeping them disempowered, which is precisely why CRT has become one of the Democrats’ principal weapons of choice.
Rice also points out the utter futility of whites feeling perpetually guilty and blacks feeling perpetually disempowered, especially since such a strident dichotomy offers no real long-term solution for the persistent division amongst Americans.
“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past. I don’t think that’s very productive …
Or black people have to feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
In many ways, Rice’s commentary mirrors that of Nikki Haley.
Haley, who is originally from India, also grew up with a message of empowerment, in spite of the presence of racism and discrimination.
Given that Haley, similar to Rice, has achieved remarkable success, she is also on the same page with Rice in terms of how damaging CRT is.
“Critical race theory is going to hold back generations of young people. My parents always taught us to focus on what brings us together not sets us apart … America should be united around shared values, not divided by different shades of color.” [Source: The Daily Mail]
America should absolutely be united by shared values, though the Democrats rarely profit from unity.
Moreover, the ultra-leftist “teachers,” who clearly can’t get a job anywhere else but the cesspool of public education, are hardly likely to avoid using the classroom as a personal pulpit for personal prejudices, most of all political prejudice.
Which is precisely why more than one parent is now running for a position on the school board in an effort to stem the hatred permeating public schools.
For instance, at least three different parents are running for a position on the school board in Douglas County, Colorado.
One parent, Mike Peterson, indicated he never contemplated running for office, though he feels called to do so in light of what is occurring in public schools.
“I’ve never run for elective office, I didn’t want to run for elective office … I felt a calling because I think we need to get these rising generations of kids back on track, understanding that there absolutely is privilege in America and it’s the privilege to be an American.” [Source: Fox News]
Thank you, Mr. Peterson.
One can only hope that he, along with other like-minded parents, will begin to supplant the leftist loons dominating school boards today.
And, in the event that school boards remain largely the same, Rice also offers up another reality for public schools that refuse to eschew CRT.
“[Parents are] actually homeschooling [their children] in increasing numbers. And I think that’s a signal.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
It’s a signal all right.
A signal that parents refuse to tolerate hatred and indoctrination masquerading as “education” …
