Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke about a variety of things on “The View” recently, including Critical Race Theory (CRT). The well-known black conservative woman is no stranger to controversy due, in large part, to her identity. A typical guest who appears on “The View” would generally have favorable views of CRT. Most of the show’s costars view CRT as simply teaching “history”. Rice thinks differently and she articulated her alternative perspective perfectly.
Critical Race Theory has been a hot-button issue for quite some time now. The debate around CRT, however, has ratcheted up tenfold over the past few months. Especially in the arena of public K-12 schools. Proponents of CRT say that this form of education seeks to teach children about the true history of the United States and the world. In reality, CRT simply divides children on the basis of race. CRT creates an environment where white students are made to feel guilty because people who share their same race did bad things in the past. Conversely, CRT makes non-whites feel like victims who are oppressed by white people.
Teaching history in school is nothing new. Slavery is not an issue that is considered off-limits. However, there is a proper method to go about teaching children. Inserting what amounts to personal insults based on race into a child’s school curriculum should not be allowed. Assigning fault, blame, guilt, shame, or the status of victimhood of status to school children is completely improper. Some school teachers and administrators like this form of “education” for an entirely different reason than an ignorant and casual observer does.
Those at the top of the food chain in academia understand that children are malleable, like lumps of clay. Whatever they are taught from an early age will generally stick with them throughout their entire lives. It is the equivalent of learning a language for the first time. Any language learned after that will generally not be as fluent as what they learned from the beginning. Children are intentionally being brainwashed with far-leftist, Marxist ideology disguised as an altruistic and righteous thing called Critical Race Theory. The hope is that when these children become adults, they will pass down what they were taught to their children. Some of them will become school teachers and gleefully brainwash the next generation of children. Which is exactly what is happening right now.
Condoleezza Rice expressed the general problems with CRT in a direct and easy-to-understand fashion. A good sign is that she did get some applause from the audience, although somewhat muted. People don’t want to be labeled as racist or insensitive to race by not supporting CRT. To break the leftist social stigma attached to combating CRT, the masses of people must become properly educated. This is why the battle against CRT in school has become such a ferocious one.
