Here’s another great video from a parent and mother, this time in Florida, telling a school board exactly why Critical Race Theory is racist and will destroy America:
Governor Ron DeSantis was so impressed with this mom, Keisha King, that he tweeted the video yesterday from his own account.
Here’s what King said:
Good morning. Thank you for having me speak. My name is Keisha King. I’m a mom of two, one who is in the Duval County public school system, and one in private school thanks to school choice. I’m also a member of Moms 4 Liberty representing thousands of parents.
Just coming off of May 31st, marking the 100 years of the Tulsa riots, it is sad that we are even contemplating something like Critical Race Theory where children will be separated by their skin color and deemed permanently oppressors or oppressed, in 2021. That is not teaching the truth, unless you believe that whites are better than blacks.
I have personally heard teachers teaching CRT and we have had an assembly shut down because a Duval County public school system consultant thought it would be a great idea to separate students by race. This is unacceptable.
CRT is not racial sensitivity or simply teaching unfavorable American history, or teaching Jim Crow history. CRT is deeper and more dangerous than that. CRT, in it’s outworking today, is a teaching that there is a hierarchy in society where white male heterosexual able-bodied people are deemed the oppressor and anyone else outside of that status is oppressed. That’s why we see corporations like Coca-Cola asking their employees to be less white, which is ridiculous.
I don’t know about you, but telling my child or any child that they are in a permanent oppressed status in America, because they are black, is racist! And saying that white people are automatically above me, my children or any child, is racist as well.This is not something that we can stand for in our country. And don’t take it from me, look at the writers of these types of publications.
Our ancestors, White, Black and others hung, bled, and died right alongside each other to push America towards that more perfect union. If this continues, we will look back and be responsible for the dismantling of the greatest country in the world by reverting to teaching hate and that race is a determining factor on where your destiny lies.
Absolutely brilliant. I’m so glad parents are speaking up all around the country against this racist, destructive, and inaccurate curriculum in our schools. This is what needs to happen as more and more states step up and ban CRT from the classroom.
