There is a backlash to the backlash on critical race theory. Thousands of teachers have signed a pledge saying, “We refuse to lie to young people about U.S. history and current events — regardless of the law.” Speaking the truth is not a crime in a free society.— Duty To Warn 🔉 (@duty2warn) June 13, 2021
Critical Race Theory isn’t a theory.— Liz Wheeler (@Liz_Wheeler) June 13, 2021
It’s not a perspective of history.
It’s racialism, reducing everyone to race.
CRT’s purpose: tear down western institutions with accusations of “systemic racism” using racial minorities as the vanguard.
Why? To impose Marxism.

When they talk about banning CRT, they don't mean CRT; they mean banning discussion of racism at all.
It's about protecting white supremacy.
