In a statement following the news that Attorney General Merrick Garland is siccing the FBI on parents who oppose Critical Race Theory” (CRT) in K-12 schools, a black-led group has denounced the “underlying premise of CRT and said it plans “to educate the public” about the theory’s origins and its “harmful effects on students.”
Minnesota-based TakeCharge, led by President Kendall Qualls, wrote, “We at TakeCharge, continue to support the idea that the promise of America is obtainable by any citizen regardless of race or social standing. We are quite aware of past racial and demeaning policies that were sanctioned in the past. We also realize that racist people reside in the country. However, that does not mean that the country suffers from systemic racism – the United States today, is not the same country of 50 years ago. Today, children of color have vastly more opportunities to succeed in life than their parents and grandparents. Our goal is to help them achieve an independent and abundant life, free from government subsidies.
“We fully denounce the underlying premise of Critical Race Theory,” the statement added, noting it does not “endorse, support or promote threatening comments of behavior to people with opposing views,” and intends to continue to promote its philosophy “peacefully and encourage others to follow our example.”
Bravo. Nothing enrages the left more than independent-minded blacks who reject the left’s divisive, subversive, race-mongering CRT ideology.
