The founding ideals of the United States of America are under attack – especially in our schools. But it is already a major issue in places such as Congress, our Military, and certainly in colleges across America.
Critical Race Theory is an issue that is supposedly about “giving a voice to the voiceless.” But, the problem with the basic theory is that the whole idea of race being something that is ignored in America, and that America’s founding fathers were racists, is either a massive exaggeration, confused understanding of history, or an outright lie.
Yes, the United States of America was a country, like many other countries in the 1700’s and 1800’s that had slavery. Black people were the underprivileged group of society. But, in 1860, the entire country went to battle with slavery as one of the most central issues in the war. It was perhaps the most central issue. From then and onward, the status of black people steadily improved. The status of black people then advanced one more time in the mid 1900’s with the success of the Civil Rights Movement. The Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement were two of the most important major events of the 19th and 20th century. They catapulted the status of minorities in the most free-loving country in the world.
But there are people today, who will argue that ALL problems today are based on issues that go back to the problematic issues of race in America. These people are anti-America, and hate the country they live in. They do not believe that America is a good country. It is that simple. These people are dangerous. They don’t support the rule of law. They are the same people who want to defund the police instead of enforcing the law. There is one word in Critical Race Theory that is correct – critical. It is absolutely critical to NOT talk about race if we want to continue to focus on what really matters in our lives – freedom, success, and peace.
