Growing up poor in Detroit, if I had believed, as proponents of Critical Race Theory (CRT) claim, that my destiny was based on my race, I wouldn’t be where I am today. We cannot allow CRT to deprive American children of this same hope that was instilled in me.
Recently, author and professor Ibram Kendi, creator of so-called anti-racist doctrines that are at the heart of the CRT, claimed that the CRT is an “imaginary monster” concocted by conservatives as a frightening tactic to deny talk of race. This is clearly wrong.
For starters, it’s important to understand that the term “anti-racism” as used by Kendi, which sounds non-threatening enough, doesn’t mean what you think. Indeed, far from being anti-racist, the ideology promoted by Kendi and his fellow travelers is anything but. He redefines reality to place the guilt and blame solely on race. Classifying people in this way is literally the definition of racism.

This kind of vocabulary manipulation is one of the reasons why this ideology has stealthily invaded our institutions. After all, who doesn’t want to be anti-racist?
Contrary to Kendi’s recent assertion, the CRT and so-called anti-racism are very real and are the vanguard of a radical revolutionary movement that seeks to overthrow the established order in all areas of society, including including capitalism itself.
This divisive ideology seeks to replace the traditional American value of equal opportunity with a regime that assumes all whites are racist oppressors and labels all racial minorities as victims.
While the classic Marxism from which the CRT was born focuses on class conflict, the CRT substitutes class for race, totally ignoring the demonstrated failure of Marxist ideologies – unlike the people of Cuba who protest against Marxist failures in this regard. very moment.
CRT and anti-racism are based on racist and conspiratorial gossip.
CRT has primarily focused on the classroom, but it is also gaining momentum in boardrooms, corporate training, and even the U.S. military – which now suffers from a lack of time-to-time preparation. war due to excessive focus on CRT.
Kendi even went so far as to propose the creation of a permanently funded Anti-Racism Department, accountable to no one and tasked with pre-approving all local, state and federal public policies based on the CRT and anti-racist ideology.
Another distinguishing feature of supporters of anti-racism and the CRT, besides the fact that they engage in blatant racism, is that they blame all racial disparities on racism. This is a claim that is not supported by the evidence.

Research has shown that factors such as the presence of a stable two-parent family, educational choices and economic prosperity, among others, account for much of the observed racial differences, rather than the bogeyman of racism. Thus, CRT and anti-racism are based on racist and conspiratorial gossip.
The results of this extremist ideology have been devastating. The massive riots in Portland and other parts of the country, the damage of which made them the costliest riots in U.S. history, are the product of a generation raised on indoctrination of grievances racial.
And the prosecutors of the big cities, also anchored in the ideology of the CRT, often give free rein to the violent rioters. It does nothing more than free criminals to continue to threaten their communities and victimize the very disadvantaged populations that the radicals claim to protect.

But if there is a silver lining in the aggressive zeal of Marxists to force the CRT on our communities, it is that their efforts are awakening the nation like few problems in recent memory, mobilizing citizens across the country to engage the school boards and local governments to eliminate racist conspiracy theories like CRTs from schools, businesses and government.
This renewed commitment could be a promising first step in eroding the decades-long dominance of Marxism in American education.
