U.S. Conf. of Mayors Adopts Resolution Supporting K-12 CRT

September 10, 2021

During its annual convention held recently, the United States Conference of Mayors adopted a resolution in support of teaching the race-mongering ideology of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in public K-12 education.

“NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the nation’s mayors support the implementation of CRT in the public education curriculum to help engage our youth in programming that reflects an accurate, complete account of BIPOC history,” the document states.

This confirms that teachers’ unions and local school board officials were lying when they denied recently that CRT is being taught in K-12 schools.

The resolution falsely defines CRT as “the practice of interrogating the role of race and racism in society, in which racism can be seen across systemic, institutional and interpersonal levels operating over the course of time and across generations.”

Kendall Qualls, former candidate for Congress in 2020, is leading a black school choice and anti-woke culture movement, starting in Minnesota and spreading nationally, that aims to challenge the narrative that America is a systemically racist nation. TakeCharge says its objective is “inspire and educate black and other minority communities of their full rights and privileges as Americans granted to them by the Constitution.” The group denounces “the idea that the country is guilty of systemic racism and white privilege” and “abhor[s] the concept of identity politics and the promotion of victimhood in minority communities.”

“There are many prominent black Americans, including myself, voicing strong opposition to Critical Race Theory,” Qualls recently told Breitbart News. “If judging a person by their skin color was wrong during Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech in the 1960s, it is wrong today.”
