CRT is nothing more than teaching the impact of Racism on our political, social, and economic institutions. To deny the impact of racism on our history is just plain stupid. CRT has been around for decades, and mainly discussed only at the highest academic levels. It’s not taught to make white kids feel guilty. It’s taught because history is history. You teach the truth. It’s being used mainly by the right to motivate the base for the midterm elections. When those are over it will vanish back to academia from the public eye.

You still don't get it. Teaching the atrocities of what happened in history is not the issue. Trying to make someone feel guilty for those atrocities today is wrong and will only continue building division.
You made the white grievance post....so if we teach proper history we would make it clear that in places like Tulsa the black community worked hard and was highly successful and the white community reacted by burning it down and stealing their possessions. The government, police and other officials stood by and did nothing. The survivors were sent to internment camps. If this makes you "feel" bad this is on you, but it is important to recognize our country has not treated people equally. The GQP legislation does not protect a teacher who teaches the truth (like what I stated above) and that is the problem with the new white grievance campaign led by Tucker and the right.

CRT is going To teach my 12 year old son that his best friend that my son is the reason he won’t be able get ahead in life. Nether no that currently but it will be instituted this coming school year. I enjoy my interaction with my sons friend when he comes over. He’s polite and my son is always happy after he heads home. It’s a joke. Kids don’t see color or race just like kids don’t see rich or poor. All they know what makes them happy and sad. Just like little league sports, parents make everything worse.
A) you do not know what CRT is?
B) I doubt your school is teaching CRT.
C) KIds learn racism from adults so it is good news that your son has an open mind.

Teaching about racial inequality in America is not teaching hate.

Shouldn't we teach ALL history when "The government, police and other officials stood by and did nothing" for the human race or does it only matter when it was done against people of color?

Just asking for a friend.

Thanks.:cool:(y)

What is the school district? You don't think black americans have had a different experience (based on race) over the past 200 years?
Since I have you attention, could you explain something for me? Why is it called Juneteenth? Should it be called June Nineteenth? Please explain since you know everything.

The term Juneteenth is a blend of the words June and nineteenth. The holiday has also been called Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day.

Another off the rails thread on Yappi. Critical Race Theory is not taught in primary schools. It is the study of how racism has shaped public policy and is really only taught to college and law students.

No, blacks are coated in Teflon.
The "Soft Prejudice of Low Expectations" practiced against black people by the racist Democrat Party is THE ONLY SYSTEMIC RACISM STILL PRACTICED IN AMERICA TODAY. It is also the source of your "Teflon coating".

It is the most damaging, corrosive and persistent form of racism against the collective black soul, and the American Democrat Party holds the patent for it. It is the subtle lie that forms the only remaining shackles worn by black Americans. End of story.

Dems and the media say, "You Blacks aren't good enough, but it's not your fault. You can't compete, but you're a victim. You're weak, and you need us, but we are here for YOU. Just vote for us and we'll get you the free stuff you deserve."

How diminishing and degrading, but I guess if blacks swallow the sugar-coated sh1t, they get the cookie, too. Yipeee!, I guess ?

Every one knows that history 🤷‍♂️

It actually is about teaching racist doctrine that signals out a particular race and demands they feel guilty for something they never took part in (and elevating others to victimhood for something they never suffered)
Exactly.

Marketing "white guilt", something only possible as Trojan horse'ed on the strength of the Judeo-Christian ethos, has been done mainly so they can destroy our religion and the type of free and equal society that only our faith has made possible in all of recorded history.

I find the irony painful.

""non-racist" or "color-blind" (which defines the American constitution's approach to race)"
gosh not in its original form

Article I Section 2
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.

Article IV Section 2
No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.
Which is the problem with those who, as the Messiah, Barak Hussein Obama said, want to "fundamentally change America".

"Fundamental change" requires constitutional change. Oh wait, we did that 150 years ago and cleaned up the vestiges of this particular national sin via federal law 57 years ago.

In this debate, we have a side that absolutely refuses to acknowledge the correction - which I find very odd behavior. At some point, refusing to accept that we started there and progressed to here is spitting into the wind of reality.

Lefties want to throw out the best constitution in the world, based on individual liberty, and replace it with false Marxist principles that have never worked well anywhere they have been tried. To do it, they have to twist, among other things, the history of racial progress, legally and culturally. At its core, it is dishonest.

Sounds like in our teachings, we should stop making excuses for groups that continue to murder each other, almost never have a male figure as part of a family unit, and deal in criminal activity rather than education.

Let's tell it like it is, right?

That is a sanitized version of what CRT is because, despite the denials, this racist, Marxist filth is being taught in schools under sanitized names. It is being forced on employees of some businesses. It is being taught in our military.

What you are doing here is trying to salvage something the Left was deceptively trying to implement on the sly, it has been exposed, so now it is benign and not really being done. Lol.

It is evil from the pit of hell. Interestingly enough, it uses many thought tracks that white supremacists (real ones) from 150 years ago used to justify their racist filth.

It couldn't be more obvious. How are these people so stupid, and ultimately self-defeating ?

THIS!!!^

"Fundamental Change"
means very different things in front of different audiences if you are a Democrat.

The loose alliance between old Demturds trying to hold power, black racists, myopic woke dolts, socialists in search of their impossible paradise, and corporatists seeking a coup all hope to end up with the reins themselves, but this thing only ends one way if we don't preserve The Republic.

Most boomers remaining as Dems have been playing with fire so long they are now blinded.

Again that was a terrible atrocity. No I don't feel bad personally about it, but the way some teachers and professors are approaching it they are trying to make people today feel guilty about it. When you have a Professor at a major University state she hates her whiteness then you have a problem with the message being delivered.

History is full of many inhumane and horrific stories. Unfortunately there are still atrocities like that going on today. The goal should be to learn from those incidents in the past in order to prevent them in the future but what is going on is an attempt to lay blame on people of today for something that occurred decades even centuries ago. The laying of blame on people living today is the issue with the way CRT is being taught. You can post all the shock photos and memes all you want it's not going to change that it happened and most of it happened before my ancestors came into this land via Ellis Island.

As for people protesting at Boards of Education I do applaud the movement because it's about teaching it without laying guilt on young children. Far too long parents ignore the curriculum being taught and that's how we have so many of our youth and young adults thinking socialism is OK. Now that the right is addressing it they are being painted as hate mongers when in reality, the way CRT is being approached is only fanning the flames of hate and division.

Isn't it funny how this was trumpeted by the left over the past couple years and now it just a figment of Republicans' imagination.
It's been around for about 50 years and it's application has not materially changed. The difference is that old aggrieved MAGA men just read about it on Breitbart or some other propaganda site and are scared and threatened. You fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

The fact a professor feels guilt, does not mean that there is a problem with the message. You have zero experience with the message having never taken a class that includes CRT as part of the curriculum. My guess, and it is a guess because I have never taken a class with CRT curriculum, is that the vast majority of college and law students do not feel personal guilt any more than they did when they were in middle school and learned about treatment of the American Indian.

Are you sure these new laws allow for a teacher to even discuss the treatment of the American Indian?

"It's used mainly by the right "

At least now you are admitting you aren't a republican instead of keeping up with that bs cascade that everyone saw through to start . The liberal talking points gave it away early

It's definitely been ramped up. To deny that is stupid and ignorant ,but that is the norm from you

Not just colleges either. Has definitely infiltrated middle and high schools. My school had a guy forced to resign recently when the crt propaganda he was spreading came out and the parents fought it. Glad my school has common sense

But with the far left , this is what you guys do. Antifa is just an idea ...ignore the violence all over. Border isn't open ,... Ignore record crossing 4 months and continuing . Crt is just a right wing boogeyman. Ignore it is ramped up big time and is contentious all over

They are not stupid or blind. They are very dedicated and laser-focused on their ultimate goal.

We have a system of individual liberty. Even worse for the Left, this liberty is declared by our founding documents as given by "Nature/ Nature's God/the Creator". Our constitution is one based on "negative rights" = rights that the the government is prohibited from infringing on.

The Left must fundamentally change our liberty into "positive rights" = liberty that is given to people by government and, therefore, become de facto privileges that can be suspended or revoked; if the rights are granted by govt, then they can be taken away by govt.

So, we see a 100 year attack by progressives and socialists on Nature's God/the Creator. It has been fairly successful. If there is no such thing, then any negative rights extended by something that doesnt exist also do not exist and can be ignored.

The wedge issue of all wedge issues is race. What the Left is doing via CRT is creating division, racial tension, and tribalism and declaring it to be a crisis. Of course, they deny they are intentionally doing this, but rather point the finger at America's original sin of racism, and are making the case that America is rotten at its founding, and its entire history is bad fruit from a poisonous tree, and needs "fundamental change".

What change do they have in mind? We see it in CRT. Individual liberty based on negative rights relies on a God/Creator and requires individual responsibility and accountability. In CRT, groups of people are assigned victim or privileged/oppressor status based solely on skin color. Since race cant be changed, the victims are not accountable or responsible for their lives and the privileged cannot absolve themselves of the guilt placed on them.

This requires a very powerful govt who can sort this all out and create justice for both groups. This goal of a greater social justice requires that individual liberty be set aside to achieve this "greater common good." This is what we are seeing and why we are seeing it. Well, the 101 version.

The one good thing is that the Left always overplays their hand, exposes their agenda too clearly, and creates backlash against their evil ideology. If they had some collective patience and embraced slow incrementalism, they would probably achieve their goals with barely eliciting a murmur from freedom-loving people. We would just wake up one day and realize our liberty is gone.

You do understand that Slavery was real? It is written into the Constitution. Black Americans could not vote and the civil right movement was in the 1960's?
