Florida bans its schools from teaching critical race theory
On Thursday, Florida's State Board of Education unanimously voted in favor of an amendment banning the teaching of critical race theory in schools throughout the state. The theory, according to PolitiFact, is a collection of ideas about systemic bias and privilege "woven into" the US legal and economic systems. The move is the latest effort by Republican lawmakers and policymakers to prevent the teaching of the theory across the US, according to CNN.

How can something so simple -- a legal analysis of today's social ills and the part race has played in their origin -- get so twisted and misunderstood. Of course, critical race theory is much more; however, it is a way to approach problem solving. It is not a thing one fears.
Conservatives have made it out to be a "boogie" man.

They are losing their power and are paranoid. Almighty God or, if you don't believe, the universe has begun the process of nullification of them. Try as they may, our uncles and aunts can't save them.

Its because conservatives may be dumb as a box of rocks, but they are politically smart. They know their people and will do anything that will keep them in power. Democrats are too smart and cerebral for their own good without realizing that quick sound bites are effective. The majority of Americans don't know the truth about critical race theory nor do they care because it will take more than 10 seconds to explain.. They do know that CRT= bad because its being beaten over their heads. Its like how "defund the police" (in part liberals' fault for picking a dumb name) was hijacked.

It should be criminal to deliberately place false information in the market place of discussions and ideas.

Because conservatives are masters at taking something that doesn't really exist (because CRT is almost exclusively a law school thing) and making it the cause of the day. They literally did it with cancel culture (another thing that doesn't really exist), and so many of y'all went for it.

Also, the guy wasn't trained by Candace Owens, he's literally her brother.

The origin of the manufactured fraudulent outrage concerning CT comes out of the Southern Baptist Convention. As the usual, the republican party will weaponize and exploit the racism in this nation to motivate their base to vote.

The Southern Baptist Convention is the home base for the wolves is in sheep's clothing. They have provided moral cover and justification for slavery and the continuance of it, separate but equal and 45s antics and racism while he was president.

Presently, they have trained their eyes on CT. Follow the time-line of the Southern Baptist Convention rather curiously taken the time out to address CT, and you'll notice, as if right on cue, republican controlled state legislatures developed a sudden interest in it.

Notice the date of the article, and the timeline is as easy as can be to see.

The fraudulent christians who are actually white supremacist to the core, and the real wolves in sheep's clothing better known as the Southern Baptist Convention purposely made it out to be the "boogie man". They targeted CT to provide moral cover for the republican party to exploit and weaponize the issue of race for the racists voters both entities sympathize with and cater to.

Notice the date of the article below and the time-line leading to the sudden interest in CT by red state legislatures will fit like a glove.

Sister Nikole Hannah-Jones, who happens to be a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, got caught up initially by the fake outrage over CT and the 1619 Project, but she has prevailed. Good for her!

UNC-Chapel Hill "denies" tenure to 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill did not approve tenure for New York Times Magazine journalist and The 1619 Project lead author Nikole Hannah-Jones after conservative groups complained about her hire at the school, NC Policy Watch reported Wednesday.

UNC "gives" Nikole Hannah-Jones tenure​

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill trustees have voted to approve tenure for New York Times Magazine journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones after reports she was previously denied it.

NPR reported that the trustees voted on Wednesday to approve tenure for Hannah-Jones, who had been tapped by the school recently to serve as its Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism. The position is usually a tenured role.

Hannah-Jones said in a statement later Wednesday that such a vote would not have occurred without the support from students, faculty and colleagues.

There is a college course, "Racial/Ethnic Minorities", that covers some of the components of CRT. Many white students will enroll in the course and withdraw because they cannot handle the subject matter. As the instructor told me, "typically the students who drop the course are the ones that need it the most".

As for Candace Owens, SMH...I won't say anything bad about her today (I'm trying to do better). But I just cannot take any black person seriously who wants to call themselves an advocate of the black community while married to someone white. Maybe that's shallow and narrow-minded, but that's just how I feel.
