Despite widespread opposition from parents and serious academics, on Thursday, the California State Board of Education voted unanimously to pass ESMC, the California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. That’s the Critical Race Theory curriculum that promotes anti-white racism and anti-Semitism, teaches kids that America is systemically racist and they’re either oppressed or oppressors based on their skin color, and encourages them to become social justice warriors for leftist causes.
While this is currently only “encouraged” for school district adoption, a new bill in the California legislature would make it mandatory for K-12 public schools.
Any California parents who don’t realize what this insidious propaganda is have probably been relying on liberal media outlets for “information” about it. As the Legal Insurrection blog notes at the link, the Los Angeles Times blithely dismissed criticism of it by writing, “Frequently attacked by former President Trump and misinterpreted as creating divisions among groups, critical race theory is seen by ethnic studies practitioners as inseparable from the field, and the board recommended adding a definition to clear up misconceptions about it.”
"Misinterpreted as creating divisions among groups"? Yeah, like that could possibly happen!
Let’s be very clear: if you think that Critical Race Theory is a neo-Marxist concept designed to destroy America by filling children with resentment, guilt and a hatred of their own nation and by turning a once-cohesive society into divided, warring tribes based on skin color, then you’ve interpreted its conception perfectly. It’s legalized child abuse. If Californians have finally wised up enough to recall their Governor, then if they care about their children, they should recall their board of education, too.
In the meantime, if you are a parent with a child going back to public school soon, read this now.
