Critical Race Theory is a set of social justice standards for framing civics and history education in America. It is a revision of traditional American and World history. It is a new way of framing what is viewed as a positive civics education, one that benefits people who are not supportive of the Traditional American Republic.
“I ask the Department of Education to refuse the two proposed priorities for the American History and Civics Education programs. Applying critical race theory which is morally evil and corrupt rejects fundamental ideas on which our country was founded. Critical race theory is damaging to students and refuses the underlying ideas on which our country is based. It should be eliminated from all American classrooms.”
“Critical Race Theory. Encourages segregation /contrary to what MLK worked for Teaches that the US is inherently evil and children should be ashamed of this great nation teaches self-hatred to white-skinned children.”
“I am opposed to any effort by the Federal government to influence the teaching of race based subjects such as the 1619 project in our public school system. Our educational system is in enough turmoil without injecting such a divisive subject into the curriculum.”
WHY ARE THEY OPPOSED?
To those opposed to CRT, they say it forms the narrative that Americans and America are a troubled and racist society based on a racist ideology that needs to be changed. Therefore, CRT or Critical Race Theory applies Marxist and Communist tactics of forcing change, where groups are divided and forcibly changed. The ideology has caused great strife between people and promises to worse.
