One of the most harmful theories to emerge in recent years from academia has been Critical Race Theory.
It’s divisive, hateful, and anti-white.
The Left love it for all three of these reasons.
Texas is not a left-wing state, and it’s legislature has effectively blocked it from being taught in the state.
Here’s some more details on what the bill does.
The bill prohibits teachers from discussing concepts related to Critical Race Theory (CRT), a Marxist philosophy that embraces the notion that all social and cultural issues should be viewed through the lens of race.
The legislation particularly bans teaching or discussing the ideas that “one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex,” or that “an individual, by virtue of the individuals’ race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.”
The bill prohibits teaching that “an individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of the individual ’s race or sex.”
Additionally, the measure states teachers cannot be forced to discuss current events in their classes. If they do so, they must “strive to explore the topic from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective.”Breitbart News
All of these sound like the right things to do in response to this leftist ideological crusade.
CRT has no place in America, and it simply has to be cut off at the roots.
There’s a bonus in the bill too, which is that it also bans teaching the poisonous 1619 Project dreamed up by subversive liberals at the New York Times.
HB 3979 also prohibits the teaching of the widely discredited New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which claims the true founding of America was 1619, the year the first slaves were brought to the colonies, and that the nation was founded on slavery and has been systemically racist since then.
Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said in September, the “1619 Project” is “one of the most significant attempts to propagandize history” he has seen in his lifetime.
This is “an all-hands-on-deck situation,” he warned during a National Association of Scholars web conference.
“We have seen what I believe to be a corruption of history, a distortion of history,” he asserted, adding that Nikole Hannah-Jones, the Times writer who led the 1619 Project, “is using the tools of a 20th-century form of oppression, to consciously, or not, present her version of, and that of many on the left’s, version of slavery in the United States.”
“And it is nothing more than sheer propaganda,” Kirsanow emphasized.Breitbart News
Now we just need Governor Greg Abbott to sign the bill, which hopefully he will do.
And once that happens, Texas is officially CRT-free!
