Critical Race Theory is Bogus and Here’s How to Refute It

In the U.S., the press works overtime to keep dividing us.

You’re attending some gathering, or simply having an email exchange with an old friend from school, and the topic of Critical Race Theory (CRT) arises. You know deep down that it’s not only wrong, it’s socially destructive. 

On the spot, you grapple with an effective retort to whomever is presenting you with bologna about the legitimacy of CRT, which contends that by virtue of you’re being born and of your skin color, if you are Caucasian, you are an irredeemable racist, your ancestors probably owned slaves, and you represent the nation’s biggest problem.

Here are ten items, in quick and succinct fashion, to raise with anyone who is promoting this Marxist/socialist culturally destructive propaganda known as CRT:

1) Slavery has existed on every continent for most of human history. Slavery in the ancient cultures was known to occur in civilizations as old as Sumer, and found in civilization including ancient Egypt, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, Greece, Rome, other parts of the Roman Empire, and the Islamic Caliphate. The Turks, Mongols, Persians, Chinese, Huns, Goths, and countless other societies held slaves.

2) African slaves, shipped to America, were rounded up and sold by Africans. African Americans, in some instances, owned African slaves.

3) The Pilgrims and the Puritans left England to escape religious persecution. Others from Holland, Germany, France, Denmark, etc. had their reasons; owning slaves was not the objective. Nine of the original 13 colonies — VT, NH, MA, CT, NY, PA, NY, DE, MD — were not slave states. VA, NC, SC, and GA were. All men (people) are created equal; all cultures and subcultures are not. The U.S. slaves states were sordid cultures. 1930s Germany under Hitler was an ignoble culture. Georgia, say, at the time future PBS journalist Charlene Hunter Gault entered the University of Georgia, was largely a racist culture. Today, the people who discriminated against her back then,  understandably, would be ashamed of that behavior today.

4) Legions of northerners were abolitionists. Some gave their lives for the cause.

5) More than 350,000 white Union Soldiers died in the Civil War. 

6) The U.S. and Great Britain led the world in stopping the African slave trade.  

7) Since 1965, the U.S has paid more than $22,000,000,000,000 either directly to African Americans, or for countless programs designed to help them achieve parity and overcome the effects of Jim Crow and discrimination. This amount equals more than $14,000 per black person alive in each of the years from from 1965 to the present, and well more than $500,000 to any individual alive for more than 40 years during this stretch. 

8) Barack Obama was elected president twice, which is impossible based on CRT doctrine.

 9) U.S. black wealth, if a separate nation, would rank among the most prosperous on Earth.

10) 28.7 million people today are victims of the world-wide slave trade, called human-trafficking, and few CRT advocates seem concerned. 

Their Response? Wait for It

It’s doubtful that purveyors of CRT they would want to address even one item above, but if they do ask them to imagine that someone introduced a theory which holds that all 45 million U.S. blacks are all… whatever. How racist would that be? Well, CRT does the same thing to whites. 

CRT is totally racist; it is stereotyping on a grand scale disguised as something supposedly high-minded. It is is not high-minded. The purpose of CRT is to indoctrinate individuals with the notion that America is an irreparably racist nation built on racist institutions, upheld by racist people. It is both a sinister and highly toxic ideology which invariably breed hostility, and keeps people apart.

A major problem with CRT is that it demonstrates no perspective on the part of the purveyor. Worldwide studies and surveys show that the U.S. is among the least racist nations on earth, with some obvious problems included. Every other country has deep divisions and unspoken hostilities; even Scandinavian countries. 

In the U.S., the press works overtime to keep dividing us. When supposed scholars haven’t looked intently beyond our borders, they derive questionable theories, and skewed interpretations. Again, suppose some ‘scholar’ declared that all U.S. blacks are xyz…  How quickly would that be bitterly refuted? In a nano-second or in a pico-second?

Fleeing Texas Democrat Now Facing Arrest Warrant

Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

Published

Instead of accepting defeat in the state legislature, the Democrats of the Texas statehouse decided that they’d simply whisk themselves away to Washington DC to prevent a vote on an election integrity bill to occur. This was the second time they had pulled a stunt like this in less than a year, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott has now said that these lawmakers will be arrested upon their reentry to Texas, and taken to the legislature to make certain that the vote occurs. Now it seems as though members of the Texas GOP are making good on Abbott’s promise. Speaker of the House Dade Phelan (R-Beaumont) signed a civil arrest warrant on Monday for State Representative Philip Cortez (D-San Antonio) for his failure to return to the House of Representatives, the Texas Tribune reported. Cortez abandoned his fellow Democrats late last week when he unexpectedly returned to Texas. Cortez claimed he returned to Austin to attempt to engage in a “good faith dialogue” on the matter of House Bill 3, the election law reform bill. After receiving harsh criticism from fellow Democrats for returning to Austin without consulting them, Cortez returned to Washington, D.C. The San Antonio Democrat currently serves as chairman of the House Urban Affairs Committee. Speaker Phelan issued a statement saying, in part, that Cortez had “irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of the chamber.” The speaker added that Cortez “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas.” The bill in question has been criticized by Texas Democrats as unfairly prohibitive to communities of color, while the GOP says that the law would simply strengthen the security of the election itself, in an effort to prevent fraud from occurring.

Liz Cheney Takes Aim at Trump During Opening Statement at Jan 6 Hearing

She’s still claiming this is “nonpartisan”, however.

The Republican Party has made it very clear that they are not interested in any sort of re-trial of Donald Trump in regard to the events of January 6th, and that any attempt to steer an investigation his direction would be considered bit of partisan tomfoolery on behalf of those who engage in such speculation. Therein lies the problem for the Nancy Pelosi-led special committee on January 6th, in that they can’t afford to be considered a partisan affair, but they are almost certainly itching for a chance to attack the former Commander in Chief. Liz Cheney, one of the few Republicans involved in the current probe, wasted no time in going there on Tuesday, however. “The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th,” Cheney said in her opening statement. The Wyoming Republican has gone on record for criticizing her GOP colleagues for supporting the former president — whom many say incited his supporters to attack the Capitol — and undermining an investigation into the events of Jan. 6. She was voted out of her role as chair of the House Republican Conference in May as a result. And then… “We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House – every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward,” Cheney said. Tuesday’s hearing featured the testimony of a number of police officers who were involved in attempting to stop the insurrection that occurred that day, and set the tone for a heated and lengthy probe to come.
