On July 15, a Reuters fact check reclaimed that “many Americans embrace the falsehoods about critical race theory.” But it is Reuters who embraced a falsehood, not the American people.
Reuters denied that critical race theory teaches that “discriminating against whites is the only way to achieve equality”, and says it was a “misconception” promoted by “conservative media.”
It is not an error. It is the explicit position of the most famous exponent of critical race theory, Ibram X. Kendi of Boston University. The “key concept“in Kendi’s book How to be anti-racist is that discrimination against whites is the only way to achieve equality: “The only remedy for past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy for present discrimination is future discrimination.” writes Kendi in that book, a New York Times best seller touted by many progressives journalists.
Ibram Kendi’s book How to be anti-racist it’s a “Complete introduction to critical race theory”, grades the main body of progressive media Board. Kendi He says was “inspired by critical race theory,” and has been described as one of the leading “critical theorists of race.” Kendi saying that he cannot “imagine a path to” his teachings “that does not involve CRT.”
Reuters says it is a fallacy to believe that critical race theory teaches “that whites are inherently bad or evil.” But it’s hard to justify widespread discrimination against whites, like Kendi does, unless you think they’re bad. Kendi once wrote an opinion piece suggesting that the targets are aliens from outer space. And the systemic racial discrimination against whites that Kendi advocates rape Supreme Court decisions such as Richmond vs. JA Croson Co. (1989).
Reuters called critical race theory “a once obscure academic concept” that is not “taught in most public high schools.” This could literally be the case, but Reuters was wrong to imply that critical race theory is rarely taught in secondary schools. While critical race theory may not be taught in “most” public high schools, Is taught in many of them, according to teacher surveys.
“Many High and Middle Schools Are Assigning” Ibram Kendi’s Book Sealed to the students, grades law professor David Bernstein, even though this “book associated with critical race theory” is full of factual errors and contains “bad history.” For example, him Free Washington Beacon reports that “Amazon spent $ 5,000 to distribute hundreds of copies” of “Ibram X. Kendi’s book” “Sealed” “to Virginia public school students” in Arlington, Virginia.
Twenty percent of teachers in urban schools taught or discussed critical race theory with his K-12 students, along with eight percent of teachers nationwide, according to to a survey by Education Week, the largest media body targeting the K-12 education sector. These percentages are even higher in high schools, where critical breed theorists’ books are much more likely to be assigned to students than in elementary schools.
ideology is pernicious. Divide the world into segregationists, assimilationists, and anti-racists. Assimilationists, like segregationists, are in Kendi telling all racists … This includes almost every prominent person who has ever worked for civil rights, including Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, WEB DuBois (at least until who became a communist), Martin Luther King, Jr., and more. Any book that describes these individuals as racists should raise more than a few eyebrows before being assigned to high school students.
The heroine of the last third of the book is Angela Davis … despite the fact that she was a communist and devoted most of her life to the advancement of communism … and was an exaggerated apologist for every brutal action ever taken by the USSR .. .
After a dubious acquittal on a murder conspiracy charge … he spent the most productive years of his career as an activist for the American Communist Party.
The anti-Semite Davis condemned They imprisoned Jewish dissidents in the Soviet Union as “‘Zionist fascists and opponents of socialism'” who should “be imprisoned.” However, she is Kendi’s heroine.
Kendi’s book misrepresents what the Nation of Islam believes, omitting its racism. Kendi falsely asserts that “a Republican candidate’s opposition to federal spending was because he was going to blacks for the first time,” even though that Republican candidate opposed racism, as evidenced by the fact that disaggregated his the state national guard before the US military was desegregated; desegregated the cafeteria from the United States Senate in 1953 after being elected to the Senate; and served as a leader member of your state’s NAACP chapter.
Kendi’s book Sealed peddling the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that “the Bush administration directed FEMA to delay its response” to a devastating hurricane “to amplify the destructive payoff to those who would benefit.” Such conspiracy theories have been discredited even by liberals like the former president of the National Democrat. Donna brazile.
Kendi falsely claim (is The bipartisan No Child Left Behind Act signed by President Bush and backed by Democratic leaders blamed black teachers and parents for poor school performance, when the opposite was true: it wanted schools, not black students, to be held accountable. blacks will pass standardization tests at lower rates than whites. In fact, the No Child Left Behind Act was “based” on the premise that “the achievement gap between children of color and white children … is not acceptable” and that “the education system must be held accountable. to close this gap, ” He says the Center for Applied Research.
