In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Larry Elder, the top Republican candidate running against corrupt elitist California Gov. Gavin Newsom in the state’s recall, expressed support for banning the racist ideology Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools.
“My preference is for local school boards to decide what the curriculum is, but I think this is so bad and so insulting that I would look into some legislation like that,” Elder said. Parents should have “an option where they can send their kids to a school that teaches this kind of nonsense and give them an option to put their kid in another school that doesn’t teach that. That’s my preference,” he added.
According to California School Board Association guidelines, CRT is the “practice of interrogating race and racism in society and the ways in which it impacts people. It emphasizes race as a social construct with social significance and acknowledges that racism is embedded within systems and institutions that replicate racial inequality — codified in law, embedded in structures, and woven into public policy.”
Elder, who is black, rightly rejects the state’s whitewashing characterization, saying: “I submit to you that systemic racism is not the problem and critical race theory and reparations are not the answer.”
