The War On Critical Race Theory Continues As Some Call It Anti-White

 What’s interesting to note is that the CRT backlash is not just coming from white conservatives in southern and rural parts of the U.S. Some of the CRT pushback stems from those who are most impacted by racialized systems. Recently, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who also happens to be the only Black Republican in the Senate, remarked that “America is not a racist country.” And just days ago, Vernon Jones, a Republican gubernatorial candidate in the state of Georgia, debated academic and political commentator Dr. Marc Lamont Hill on whether CRT should be taught in schools. Jones tweeted “it’s time for our schools to stop teaching our kids to hate America.” CRT criticism is not just in the U.S. Activist and educator Constanza Eliana Chinea discussed the global CRT backlash in a recent Instagram live conversation. Chinea mentioned British politician Kemi Badenoch, who has been an outspoken opponent of CRT. Badenoch stated that she felt that CRT authors actually want a “segregated society.” She also shared that adopting a mindset that Black people are victims simply because of their skin color is “poisonous for young people.” There has been similar pushback in France, where anti-racism educators and activists are being accused of “threatening the values of the republic.” In Australia there have also been attacks on CRT, with many touting CRT as being “anti-white.” The increased wave of backlash against CRT is a direct result of the heightened support for Black Lives Matter following the murder of George Floyd, explained Chinea in her Instagram live video.

  1. 1) The war was started by the Woke. This is resistance to their attempted Marxist remaking of society
    2) Woke is totally about segregation, classifying people according to skin colour and race and creating a class society. There are simply too many books, too many speakers and authors, too many example to credibly claim this was invented by conservatives.
