critical race theory : congratulations conservatives

elementary schools are not teaching your children that they are evil racists because they are white.

of course, they never have taught anyone that, that still isn't "critical race theory," and terrorizing your local school boards did not change anything about this subject.

2. But teaching history and current events makes it too hard to claim there is no racism in the U.S.A.

According to conservatism, racism ended with slavery, they only have, "traditional," beliefs and practices now.

4. Some dumbass woman in my area is running for school board

with a lengthy screed about CRT being Marxism and Socialism and "they're trying to divide us" blather. She said she was assured that no CRT was taught in our schools, but "she saw homework assignments from her grandkids that concerned her". (No one is teaching anything approaching CRT in our schools--my son was a teacher in the district). This is the same language being used across the US, for these Q-nuts to take over school boards. It's a script.

6. Yep, just a way to work the words "Marxist/socialist" into local politics

to scare the voters, and some white grievance thrown in there too. She otherwise doesn't really have plans or a rationale for running for school board. It's just a mass grabbing of the local reins of power.

9. Like the way they turned Antifa into a national nightmare.

Apparently, Antifa members are all Democrats and yearn to burn down all the buildings in Amurica, especially in the small towns and rural areas.

11. This Mass Hysteria wouldn't be even an issue if the MEDIA didn't do its part in hyping this

concern of the White Supremacists. The media plays its role in causing more division brought and both to you by the ELITE 1%ers.
