Guilty Just for Existing: The Shocking Problem with Critical Race Theory [Video]

Craig Huey Current Events, Education, Politics 9 Comments

All white Americans are oppressors.

All black Americans are victims.

White Americans are inherently racist. They always have been and they always will be… and there’s nothing they can do about it.

They must therefore accept their systemic racism and admit that they have unequal opportunities and privileges that blacks have never had, do not now have, and never will have.

These are the core tenets and beliefs of Critical Race Theory.

But it goes even further than this.

Among other shocking principles, Critical Race Theory teaches that debate and logical argumentation are methods created by whites to oppress and rule over blacks… and therefore, these things should no longer be taught in public schools.

A few states have banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory. Other states support it. The U.S. military is making it a key element of military training.

And many of the corporations are forcing it on employees.

And many of the state and federal government unions are forcing it as well.

As destructive as it is, it is in the public school systems from elementary school through college.

Many parents and grandparents and all taxpayers think their school system is the exception. The schools themselves deny it’s being taught by twisting words and truth.

But it is in most schools in not just history, but English, science, and math throughout the schools.

Brad Taylor – a 15-year-old former student at Rosemont High School in Rosemont, Minnesota – recently shocked the school board of Minnesota Independent School District 196 by describing how divisive and damaging Critical Race Theory is.

His speech went viral on YouTube, garnering half a million views in the first 4 days after it was posted.

Taylor accused Rosemont High School of promoting a “leftist agenda in class,” and said District 196 schools “are quickly becoming a place where promoting activism is actually more important than promoting education.”

He said, “You must admit how uncomfortable it will be to be characterized just by your skin color on the first day of school and be thought that you were wrong just because of your skin color.”

At the end of his speech, Brad Taylor announced that he would be transferring to an online Christian school where, “I will be able to learn in an environment that is not intent on punishing me daily for my skin color and political views.”

In an interview following his speech to the school board, Taylor added, “The problem is these school districts are acting like some of us are guilty for just existing, and somehow inadvertently responsible for any injustice… it made all the kids who have been in RHS feel uncomfortable and tense.”

  1. In the thirties, the black community was developing a middle class and an upper class mimicking the white classes and in separate communities. However, when FDR became President his VP was John Nance Garner of Texas and the Speakers of the House were from Tennessee, Alabama, and then Texas. This was Sam Rayburn. Now bills sent to the House for Civil Rights would not be heard In addition when Social Security was enacted, Black butlers and Black maids were excluded. The movies of the thirties certainly showed the maid and butler in a favorable light. In the forties, Sam Rayburn supported Harry Truman a member of his education group after diner. Rayburn did see a possible role for Lydon Johnson a protege and Johnson was the most powerful man in the Senate in the fifties.

    1. Sometimes the truth about history makes people uncomfortable. You can not remain ignorant about the truth, however, or you will not grow in understanding. Once you know the truth, then healing can begin. No one in current day did the deeds of the past humans who lived and made decisions and left this story to us here in the current day. But what is true, is that groups benefited from the misdeeds and groups suffered for the misdeeds and much of this is carrying through into today’s times…

  3. Continuing. Lyndon Johnson was the most powerful man in the Senate in the fifties. Johnson then was elevated to the Kennedy- Johnson ticket before Rayburn died. Now many individuals were in Dallas when Kennedy arrived on Nov. 22, 1963. Kennedy made a phone call to John Nance Garner to celebrate his 95th birthday. No one has ever connected Garner with the events of that day and if they did then the powers can be dated further back than anyone thought. On the other hand, John McCormick of Massachusetts was Speaker of the House for John F. Kennedy and Tip O’Neil as Speaker of the House probably supported the Governor of Massachusetts for President. The above are interesting connections that suggest that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of California has Vice President Karmala Harris of California as a protege and is the source of power behind Harris.

  5. TRUTH BE TOLD:: Lot of other nationalities are pushed aside Mexicans,Asians,etc.Blacks make more noise to be heard .We all need to be treated with respect every person should be valued regardless.I love mixed cultures I have it in my own family it brings a balance and makes it so interesting, if God wanted all to be the same color he had the power to do it.He is the creator of humanity ‘TAKE IT TO HIM’. if you don’t approve..Its a mindset and a heart issue./ In the 60’s I was critized in Jr high,High school due to dating other nationalities but I never fell into that trap I did what I thought was right to me and I still feel the same way and now that I know GOD is in control I was right as I grew up.//REALITY::You have your own killing each other,gangs,prisons etc. look at the government divided ,no one makes a fuss over those issues “”THE PROBLEM A MINDSET,HEART ISSUE”” By the way I’m Mex-American 69 Yrs old …

  6. Hi Craig,

    You said, “Critical Race Theory teaches that debate and logical argumentation are methods created by whites to oppress and rule over blacks… and therefore, these things should no longer be taught in public schools.” Can you give us a good primary source on that? Thanks.

  7. So somebody who is allegedly born gay should be proud, but somebody who is indisputably born white should be ashamed?
