Tyrannical Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration is injecting the racist, Marxist ideology of Critical Race Theory (CRT) into Michigan’s schools, providing material that promotes race essentialism to teachers, according to Breitbart News.
Whitmer’s Educator Advisory Council, whose mission statement declares, “We believe education is the key to promoting social justice in society,” published a report called “Social Justice and Anti-Racist Educator Resources” for K-12 public schools and teachers. Its purpose is to ensure that race is seen as a central, determinating factor in everyday interactions, and to teach some children that they are oppressed and others that they are oppressors, depending on the color of their skin.
“The compilation aims to help colleagues begin, continue, and further their own work to FIRST educate themselves and then bring anti-racist teaching to all grade levels and subject areeas [sic],” the report’s opening statement said.
As an example, the first resource is a Medium article titled “106 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice,” which asserts, “Our work to fix what we broke and left broken. The work isn’t done until Black folks tell us it’s done.”
Despite this, the Michigan House of Representatives voted 55-0 to effectively ban CRT in K-12 schools. Every single Democrat refused to participate in the vote— which speaks volumes about the Marxist core of today’s Democrat Party.
“Michigan Republicans reject the notion that America is fundamentally racist,” Michigan GOP Communications Director Gustavo Portela told Breitbart News. He added that “a major part of the solution is expanding economic and educational opportunity to all of communities. This is something that, under Gretchen Whitmer, has been greatly lacking because of her excessive lockdowns, which have led to record unemployment, students being shut out of the classroom, and record job losses – all of which have disproportionately affected African American and Latino families across the board. We will not solve this problem by imposing divisive doctrines like critical race theory on our public school children.”
