Deroy Murdock: The critical race theory beloved by the Democratic left preaches black failure. This is so wrong

Perhaps the dirtiest and ugliest big lie of the Democratic left is Critical Race Theory. It defines America as inherently and irreparably sectarian, denounces all whites as racial oppressors, and diminishes all blacks as victims of racial oppression.

Lie lie.

The third lie is the worst.

Black Lives Matter, the “diversity” police, and other “systemic racists” relentlessly claim that white privilege and white supremacy block black success. Black people think, “Yes, we can.” The Democratic left responds: “No, you can’t.”


Last June, Seattle staged Interrupt Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness. This separate brainwashing program for white city workers accused them of making people of color “unable to imagine a way forward that comes from a place of humanity and empowerment.”

Thus, blacks are paralyzed victims, as helpless as butterflies trapped in the tarantula web of white racism.

This ghastly fantasy is concocted to leave blacks cold and scared – so much the better for swaddling them in the warm, loving arms of the left.

Ultimately, like any Democratic effort, it’s about getting elected, retaining power, and controlling Americans as tightly as possible.

If it splits America like a log split with an ax, so be it. If whites are to be unfairly vilified as fanatics – to a man, a woman and a child – who cares?

And, if black people do not feel empowered but weakened in a so-called whirlwind of white hatred, then too bad. The democratic left’s insatiable thirst for total political domination must be quenched, by any means necessary.

On April 3, the Atlantic covered Ndona Muboyayi. She enrolled her son and daughter in Evanston, Illinois Public Schools, in 2018. She recalls that “in grade one my kids learned about white supremacy and white privilege and all white people were rich and racist ”.

Since the age of 11, her son dreamed of becoming a lawyer. But, before long, he had given up on his aspirations. “Mom,” he explained, “there are these systems in place that keep black people from doing anything.”

“This is what they teach black children,” Muboyayi said. “The story is, ‘You can’t go on.'”

The Democratic left is deliberately preaching this gospel of black failure:

• The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of African American History and Culture released a table last July detailing “aspects and assumptions of whiteness”. It lists “hard work“, “decision making”, “intellect”, “English rules of the king” and “Be polite”. Ergo, Blackness’s assumptions would include laziness, indecision, idiocy, illiteracy, and lack of civility. Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke couldn’t expect anything less from black people.

• Christopher F. Rufo of the City Journal is the most enterprising journalist on this beat. He reported on May 26 on a racial re-education program for 13 senior white male leaders at Lockheed Martin, America’s top military contractor. Last year, White Men As Full Diversity Partners hosted this seminar for a former Air Force Colonel, a retired USAF General and 11 other industrialists who build the Hercules C airlift vehicle. -130, the F-35 fighter and other weapons in the arsenal of democracy. For three days, they stopped defending America and became obsessed with race. WMAFDP teaches that the “roots of white male culture” include traits such as “robust individualism”, “a positive attitude” and “the pursuit of success”.

Sadly, these experts argue, these characteristics are “devastating” for minorities. Presumably, blacks are associated with group thinking, a powerless attitude, and failure as a goal.


• “Like we have that standard English thing,” said David Kirkland, professor of education at New York University, creator of New York State’s “culturally sensitive + sustainable education” program. “We don’t even know why we tell people you know, uh, learn standard English.”

“By saying this is a standard English class or even an English only class, we are agreeing to the, you know, the main narrative,” he added in a 6 March 2019 at the University of Texas, Austin. “But beyond that, we also reinforce the white supremacist narratives, the anti-Black and anti-Brown racism narratives; without control in the work we do. And that leads to multiple forms of oppression.”

So, black children, don’t act white by adopting properly written and spoken English. Personal and professional development ist verboten.

The “anti-racist” racists of Critical Race Theory pour defeatism into black bowls and disgust America with their evil stew.

And remember: English is not an evil language, just for white people, maybe like Finnish. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!) On the contrary, black people speak decent English in Jamaica, Kenya, South Africa, and many predominantly black countries.

• Robert S. Harvey trivializes the success of blacks. Writing on August 17 in Education Week, he attacked “the romanticism of talking about black people and our progress in America through an individual lens.”

He added, “Each lesson is an opportunity to talk about the legacy of systemic racism, not just the wonder of individual stories. And when we neglect to talk about how systemic racism is ingrained in American structures – education, justice, employment, housing, and health care – we unwittingly teach students that “really good, really successful” blacks are. free from racist structures. “

“Ignoring the existence of a structure I exist in perpetuates the alternate fact of a personal American dream while ignoring the often-lived common black reality of an American nightmare,” Harvey continued.

“What should we know about the first successful pericardium surgery performed by Daniel Hale Williams without mentioning the persistent disparities in health care between races and the prejudices of doctors who ignore the symptoms of black women?”

So: Whitewash Black excellence and obsession with the inescapable racist “system”.

“In other words,” writes Frederick M. Hess, an American Enterprise Institute scholar, “rather than exploring complicated realities or suggesting that individuals can shape the course of their lives, teachers should push for students to see themselves as passive victims of circumstances.


Harvey is literally asking teachers to avoid teaching students about the heroic or honorable achievements of historical figures “and” to encourage educators to reject individual achievement and free will. “

How ugly could it all get?

“I spent a lot of time in Central Africa because my father is from Congo,” Ndona Muboyayi told The Atlantic. “And some of the propaganda that is now spreading here in Evanston is similar to some of the divisions that took place in Rwanda before the massacre.”

She cited the genocide of April 7 to July 15, 1994 in which bitter tribal acrimony and vicious hate broadcasts led to the mass murder by the Hutu majority of some 800,000 minority Tutsis. This butcher’s shop reduced Rwanda’s population by 10% and that of Tutsis by 70%.

Global outrage finally ended this 100-day massacre. While not the world’s deadliest genocide, it was certainly the fastest.

“I’m not saying that’s what’s going to happen here,” Mboyayi continued, “but when you start labeling people negatively based on their race or ethnicity, it leads to division and to destruction, without finding common ground and positive. solutions. “


Critical Race Theory‘s “anti-racist” racists are serving potentially terminal social cancer from huge boiling cauldrons. They pour defeatism into black bowls and disgust America with their evil stew.

They must be ridiculed, rejected, defounded and dismantled.
