Group Run By African-American Scholars Blasts Racist CRT School Curriculum

1776 Unites has come together to fight for American students to get a quality education, rather than a crash course in Marxism and CRT

Published

The group that has come together to fight for American students to get a quality education, rather than a crash course in Marxist grievance doctrines, is called ‘1776 Unites’.

1776 Unites is a movement to shape the American future by drawing on the best of its past. Radically pragmatic and unapologetically patriotic, we hope to speak for Americans of all races, creeds, and political convictions who oppose the efforts to demoralize and demonize our country and its foundations from within, and to turn its people against one another with false

We acknowledge that racial discrimination exists — and work towards diminishing it. But we dissent from contemporary groupthink and rhetoric about race, class, and American history that defames our national heritage, divides our people, and instills helplessness among those who already hold within themselves the grit and resilience to better their lot in life.

They have no intentions of standing back and ceding ground to radical racists hellbent on hijacking our school systems.

They have joined the public pushback against Critical Race theory — and the various parallel agendas — that have increasingly become the flashpoint in schools in the last couple of years, even more so with the rise of the New York Times’ latest subversive enterprise, the 1619 Project whose author was very pleased to see ‘1619’ spraypainted on the handiwork of vandals through the uprisings and monument destruction through the summer of 2020.

The 1619 project was published by the same NY Times that hid reports of the Holocaust coming from Germany and Poland during WWII and suppressed reports of Stalin’s orchestrated starvation of millions of Ukrainians known as the Holodomor. But when it comes to racism, the paper publishes information—false information.

While the supposed progressive paper of record does its part to push CRT on America, to teach minority children that they are oppressed when they’re not and white kids that they are oppressors when they are not–’1776 Unites is working hard to promote the parts of American history that race-hustlers would have us forget. While so many letters just offer complaints, this one offers solutions.

1776 Unites published an open letter to the national school boards association & local school boards. Here is an excerpt from the letter:

We propose including in your schools’ offerings the Woodson Center’s 1776 Unites curricula, which map to Social Studies, English and Social/Emotional Learning standards. 1776 Unites offers authentic, motivating stories from American history that show what is best in our national character and what our freedom makes possible even in the most difficult circumstances.

The curricula maintain a special focus on stories that celebrate black excellence, reject victimhood culture, and showcase the millions of African Americans who have prospered by embracing their country’s founding ideals. The lessons have been downloaded more than 17,000 times across all 50 states.

The Woodson Center’s 1776 Unites curriculum is grounded in essential American values, upholding:

Continuity, not rupture. 1776 Unites confronts the realities of slavery and racism in American history while also recognizing them as betrayals of our founding’s highest principles. Leaders like Thomas Jefferson are celebrated in our history despite, not because of, their personal and political failings. The struggle of Americans to rise and realize our own values is part of our story—and always has been.

Dignity, not grievance. While dealing frankly with the grim realities of racial segregation, 1776 Unites also shows how black Americans have seized their own destiny and flourished despite harsh restrictions, as demonstrated by the development of nearly 5,000 rural schoolhouses overseen by Booker T. Washington and Julius Rosenwald. These schools became sources of local pride and helped close the white-black learning gap.

Resilience, not fragility. Knowing the achievements of the past helps students better understand their responsibilities as American citizens. A lesson on the “Woodson Principles,” which celebrate individual responsibility and strength in the face of adversity, asks students to draw vital support from family, faith, community, and participation in civic life.

The full letter can be read here.

The letter closes with an invitation…

We invite all those who are committed to quality education and fostering a genuine interest among our young people in how inspiring lessons from our past can inform our path forward to contact us at 1776 Unites ([email protected]) and to view and download our free lessons here.

We encourage our readers to check it out and pass it along to anyone you know who might be interested in this content, whether as an educator, a school board trustee, a concerned parent, or a local activist.

Famous Bounty Hunter Joins Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida

Laundrie has been evading police for days on end.

Published

on

The most wanted man in America may be hiding out in a Florida nature reserve, and police have spent several days scouring the vast wilderness looking for clues.

Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito, disappeared from his parents’ home in North Port, Florida last week with no cell phone and no wallet.  The story was that he would be doing some hiking in the Carlton Reserve, but given the situation regarding Petito’s death, there is little doubt that Laundrie’s disappearance was purposeful.

Now, one of the nation’s most famous bounty hunters is on the case.

Dog the Bounty Hunter arrived at Brian Laundrie’s parents’ home Saturday, knocked on the door and met silence, but he’s already picked up a scent.

“The reason I went to Mr. [Christopher] Laundrie is I carry a reputation with me,” he told Fox News Digital moments later. “The reputation is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’s gonna get you, but he gives you a second chance.’”

The reality TV star and legendary bounty hunter, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is a father of 13 who lost a daughter around the same age as Gabby Petito in a car accident in 2006. He was already in Florida on a honeymoon with his wife Francie Chapman, he said, when people began reaching out to him to look into Laundrie’s disappearance.

The television star was hoping for the best.

Laundrie’s parents reported him missing Friday, Sept. 17, telling police they hadn’t seen him in three days.

“And the dad can still reach out to me, through social media,” Chapman said. “Let’s get the kid captured alive. Alive.”

Laundrie has been charged with federal bank fraud after being found to have used Petito’s debit card after her death.

As Joe Biden Pushes Debunked ‘Whipping’ Story, Border Patrol Lashes Out

These agents were NOT happy.

Published

on

Last week, a number of disturbing images erupted at the southern border, that appeared to depict Border Patrol officer chasing migrants on horseback.

To make matters worse, the way in which the photos were presented seemed to suggest that these agents were using the reins of their mounts to “whip” the migrants, invoking imagery from a much darker time in America’s past.

Even President Joe Biden and the White House Press Secretary seemed perturbed by it, but there was one problem:  Border Patrol claims none of it is accurate.

On Friday, amid an ongoing investigation into the agents – who have now been shifted to desk duty – and a day after the Biden administration barred the use of horses in Del Rio, the president tore into those agents.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

This didn’t sit well with agents, however.

Border Patrol agents were stunned and angered by the comments, which both claimed without evidence that migrants were run over and whipped, and at the same time cast a shadow over the investigation.

“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told Fox News.  “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”

The agent asked, “Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?”

Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”

Biden’s continued bungling of the border situation has been a key part of his flailing approval numbers of late, and this attempt to throw federal law enforcement under the bus certainly isn’t going to help either.
