Today’s highly interesting read (05/13/21): Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

In my view, this is one of the most important articles you’ll read so far this year. And it’s a must-read because school districts  all around the country have either implemented this nonsense or are seriously considering it.

It’s a lengthy read, but extremely critical. Do what you can to absorb it all, whether  all at once or in sections. Yes, it’s that important because it’s so dangerous. Be aware because it might be in the works for your school district.

Today’s read is from a true scholarly  expert, Christopher F. Rufo, a senior fellow and director of the initiative on critical race theory at the Manhattan Institute. Here’s an excerpt:

I’m just one investigative journalist, but I’ve developed a database of more than 1,000 of these stories. When I say that critical race theory is becoming the operating ideology of our public institutions, I am not exaggerating—from the universities to bureaucracies to K-12 school systems, critical race theory has permeated the collective intelligence and decision-making process of American government, with no sign of slowing down.

This is a revolutionary change. When originally established, these government institutions were presented as neutral, technocratic, and oriented toward broadly held perceptions of the public good. Today, under the increasing sway of critical race theory and related ideologies, they are being turned against the American people. This isn’t limited to the permanent bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., but is true as well of institutions in the states—even red states. It is spreading to county public health departments, small midwestern school districts, and more. This ideology will not stop until it has devoured all of our institutions.

So far, attempts to halt the encroachment of critical race theory have been ineffective. There are a number of reasons for this.
