Followup to Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory - Part Two

Critical Race Theory will never be taught in elementary, middle, or high schools. That is just a fact. What is viewed as a threat to inherent white privilege is the teaching of true history. I grew up thinking that Jesus was a white man with a tan and that pharaohs looked like Yul Brynner. I was taught that the founding fathers were flawless paragons of democracy and justice and Native Americans, or Indians as we called them then, were savages that hindered the progress of Manifest Destiny (because God was a white guy, too).

Perhaps there has been some push to teach the correct history of the World and the United States, an effort that was branded by demagogues as Critical Race Theory. The truth is that most of the founding fathers were slave owners. There is an attempt to mitigate this with the suggestion that they were kind to and, in the case of Jefferson, even bred with their slaves. This does not change the fact that the slaves did not ask for their jobs and did not even want to be there.

Andrew Jackson authorized a genocide of American Indians. Lynchings of the descendants of slaves were common for the century following the Civil War. Violence, threats, and Jim Crow laws were used to deny black Americans the right to vote for decades after the fifteenth amendment was enacted. Woodrow Wilson was a known bigot, but that fact remains hidden to most.

The truth of the matter is that the founders of Christianity were dark-skinned like today's Middle Easterners and the pharaohs probably looked similar to Egyptians today. Native Americans were not the aggressors and God never declared that he wanted those of European descent to rule the continent.

The real fear behind the hysteria is that someone might teach white children that white privilege was never earned.

Critical Race Theory.It does not really matter what I write here. It will be transparent and nobody will be able to read it, so I could just print nonsense as long as it was real words that would count for my total of six hundred words. I wonder if my signature would count. Probably not since it is really an image. That was 59 words before I typed this last sentence.
