Critical Race Theory Is Divisive And Discriminatory

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an incredibly divisive and discriminatory theory that is being put into practice across multiple levels of government, colleges, and our schools. It needs to stop.

President Trump issued an Executive Order that stated the following: 

“Today, however, many people are pushing a different vision of America that is grounded in hierarchies based on collective social and political identities rather than in the inherent and equal dignity of every person as an individual. This ideology is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country; that some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.

This destructive ideology is grounded in misrepresentations of our country’s history and its role in the world. Although presented as new and revolutionary, they resurrect the discredited notions of the nineteenth century’s apologists for slavery who, like President Lincoln’s rival Stephen A. Douglas, maintained that our government “was made on the white basis” “by white men, for the benefit of white men.” Our Founding documents rejected these racialized views of America, which were soundly defeated on the blood-stained battlefields of the Civil War. Yet they are now being repackaged and sold as cutting-edge insights. They are designed to divide us and to prevent us from uniting as one people in pursuit of one common destiny for our great country.”

CRT literally promotes discrimination and segregation. The 1619 Project, a key component, pushes for the country to accept that the true founding of our country was with the first slave ship landing on our shores in 1619, and promotes the unfounded and debunked idea tthat our country was founded to keep slavery intact. The 1619 Project along with Critical Race Theory is now being taught in our schools as fact.

On a side note, I’m for teaching the 1619 Project. AS LONG AS students are also taught counter arguments to the same. The problem is, Critical Race Theory adherents demand that their way is the ONLY way. For example, Ibram Kendi wrote a book called “How to be an AntiRacist.” Just this year, Fairfax County public schools paid him $20K to teach the teachers about this. What was he teaching? 

“The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination. As President Lyndon B. Johnson said in 1965, “You do not take a person who, for years, has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say, ‘You are free to compete with all the others,’ and still justly believe that you have been completely fair.” As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in 1978, “In order to get beyond racism, we must first take account of race. There is no other way. And in order to treat some persons equally, we must treat them differently.””

Do our readers remember what happened this summer? Every company, no matter the size, sent email after email after email virtue signaling that ‘we as a company acknowledge our problem whiteness and hidden racism. We promise to do so much better because Black Lives Matter!’ 

But when anyone asked the question as to why don’t we consider ALL lives important, we were treated to screaming diatribes of invectives and ordered to check our privilege. 

Critical Race Theory demands that we, no matter if we are white, Hispanic, Asian, female or male, confess that we are racist, fold up our tents, and zip our lips. 

Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah, that’s right. In Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s. It didn’t end well for Hitler and the stain lingers. With CRT, we are seeing in real time that the lessons haven’t been learned. 

Joe Rogan, definitely not a conservative, is dealing with woke Spotify employees demanding that they be allowed to censor his interviews. 

Swarthmore College students are demanding that Critical Race Theory be a mandatory requirement for graduation.

Companies are bowing to this discriminatory political correctness and putting together diversity committees to ‘solve the problem.’ What problem? That of white privilege. Question: How do you solve a problem of white privilege when the office and plant consisting of 100+ employees is only 1% white?  

No dear, what we are trying to do is push back against the insidious identity politics that has and is causing more harm than good. College examples are Oberlin, Evergreen, Yale, Dartmouth, and many more.

Another example is how Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett is being treated. Ibram Kendi tweeted this. 

This is Critical Race Theory at its core. We are being told to assume every aspect of our life is racist and respond with apologies and behavior changes. CRT adherents lecture everyone else while engaging in their own unchecked divisiveness and discrimination. 

Except that by the mere dint of speaking, we are supposed to use our careful words instead of using our Constitutional right to Freedom of Speech. Critical Race Theory demands speech in one direction and one direction only. Which leads to dreck like this being ignored or excused.

Critical Race Theory and books like “White Fragility” tells us that open bigotry, divisiveness, and discrimination are 100% ok as long as the dialogue is anti-white. The media, of course, is buying into this load of horseshit with open arms. 

Our Republic was founded upon the premise that ALL men are created equal. Our Founders set the wheels in motion to deal with slavery by putting our Constitution in place. Martin Luther King furthered equal rights for all, while the good intentions of the Civil Rights Act and others, have caused more harm than good. 

That said, the greater harm is to let Critical Race Theory stand as if it is THE authority. It is not. Furthermore, not one single American should be comfortable with the fact that CRT rejoices in targeted discrimination. That is wrong and history has shown us time and again how very detrimental that is to society. 

Critical Race Theory believes that if one is white, that person should be marginalized and shunted aside. Critical Race Theory is antithetical to freedom, and seeks to return us to an era of discrimination while trampling on our Constitutional rights. We cannot and should not let that happen.

    I am an Australian now living in Vietnam and have been examining the US political scene to try and understand it’s political divisiveness. Let me tell you about my observations of how the Vietnamese deal with history. The first time I was in Ha Noi I saw so many teenagers listening to American music and wearing T shirts with American flags, slogans etc. I asked an old lady how she reconciled that with their history. We don’t forget the past, she said, we remember but we move forward without hate. To make progress you must move forward. Wise words.
    The war ended in 1975 so its only 45 years ago. They still have many unexploded bombs that still kill people, ongoing agent orange effects, and cemeteries full of the graves of young male and female soldiers. I have spoken to poor people, old soldiers and many others and can tell you they are not a bitter people. They move forward, not look over their shoulders trying to dig up divisiveness.

    Some Americans have forgotten who they are and the wonderful freedoms they enjoy. I am not denying some have hard lives but if you really want to see poor and disadvantaged then come over here. Life in the west is a luxury.

    Wake up America, count your blessings and stop looking through the lens of victims and oppressors. Instead look to what you have achieved and bettering your lives. Creating a revised narrative about the past will only end in tears, it is a regressive step. When Nelson Mandela walked out of prison he realised that if he didn’t leave his bitterness behind it would continue to live inside himself and he would not be free.
    Is anyone listening? The perception that hate only exists in the minds of racists is untrue, some of you are more hateful. That is sad. Start with being a Mandela like person yourself before you try to change others.

    Gerard, your final sentence hits on the root of the problem, I think: much of the American Left has decided on an external locus of control. This means that nothing is either their fault or to their credit, and everything that requires change must be changed by other people (it’s clear that when they say they are trying to “root out their own privilege” and so on, they believe the effort futile – see Kendi – and are only giving themselves brownie points for their sisyphean struggle). Going through life in a permanent state of disgruntlement at a dystopia that’s impossible for them to affect – no wonder they so often describe themselves as “exhausted.”

    Sure, plenty on the Right also claim an external locus of control. But on the American Right, we are more likely to believe that that control resides in a supreme Being Who actually can effect change in our lives and in the world, Who created the world not as something other than hell (for some, a garden; for others, a school; for others, a way station – but not hell), and Who requires us to work on ourselves because it’s within our grasp to improve ourselves.

  • Jamie says:

    Sorry, in my previous – rather than, “Who created the world not as something other than hell” I meant to say “Who created the world as something other than hell.”

    Darn phone screens!

    In 1965. 55 years ago. THAT ship has sailed and sunk. You can’t use it as an excuse NOW.

    Excellent, Nina. You hit every nail on the head. CRT is hateful and very divisive, and should never be promoted in the USA, not with taxpayer support or any other kind of support. It is what I call theory that has run amuck, without any support from data or credible support. It is “substantiated” entirely by peer approval. In other words it is supported entirely by like-minded “professors” in academia in fields such as race and gender studies.
