If you believe for one moment that the liberal media is not the enemy, look no further than Michigan. Even as the media tries to convince you that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not taught in Michigan or anywhere in the country. An MLive.com story from July 8, 2021 declares that even though CRT is taught at the university level, it is not being taught in K through12.
One month later, Michael Rice, the Michigan superintendent of public instruction, declared at a Michigan Board of Education meeting that “critical race theory is not a curricular issue in pre-K-12 education.”
Michigan State University (MSU) professor Dorinda Carter Andrews addressed CRT in June of 2021, going so far as to say:
CRT dismisses the idea that racism stems from acts of individuals but rather rooted in a system of oppression based on socially constructed racial hierarchy where white people reap material benefits over people of color resulting from misuse of power.
She then added,
Now we are living in a time where the voices of people of color are being lifted up, and tragic events like George Floyd’s death one year ago and violence against members of the Asian panethnic community prove that problems remain.
-Superintendent of Detroit Public Schools Nikolai Vitti is honest about CRT:
“Our curriculum is deeply using critical race theory, especially in social studies, but you’ll find it in English language arts and the other disciplines. Students need to understand the truth of history, understand the history of this country, to better understand who they are and about the injustices that have occurred in this country.”
The media and Terry Mcauliffe tied its very same thing in Virginia and I guess we all know how that turned out. Parents are no longer willing to sit back and let the schools decide what is best for their kids.
Some Michigan state representatives and senators are opposed to the teaching of CRT in their state. House Bill 5097 would prohibit the teaching of anything considered “race or gender stereotyping.” Senate Bill 460 would lead to a loss of 5% of funding to schools caught teaching CRT. Both bills are sponsored by Michigan GOPers. As of last June, 81 people, mostly teachers, had sent letters in opposition to the two Republican bills.
CRT is Marxist in nature. If everyone doesn’t succeed, racism must be to blame.
That’s insane. Whatever happened to working hard and working smart?
Martin Luther King, Jr. fought and died for equality. Today, CRT seeks revenge for past transgressions, real or imagined.
