As parents protest critical race theory, students fight racist behavior at school

Quote:
During the first week of October, Brooklyn Edwards was in the school gymnasium during her lunch period when she said a classmate took a piece of cotton out of his pocket, tossed it on the ground and told her to pick it.

Quote:
Brooklyn, 15, described the incident a month later at the Johnston County, North Carolina, school board meeting. She said she’d dealt with racist bullying frequently as a Black student at Princeton Middle/High School, in a majority-white small town southeast of Raleigh. Classmates called her racial slurs, she said, including in front of teachers who failed to react. One classmate suggested she kill herself, so she might be reborn as a white girl, Brooklyn said.
Quote:
“It’s bad enough we have to deal with racism in the real world. We shouldn’t have to deal with it in school,” she told the school board, pleading with them to investigate racial harassment in the district. “I’m speaking up for the ones that are too scared to speak up for themselves.”
Yes, I will take up her cause, by golly.

So what does this incident have to do with parents not wanting CRT taught in schools? Or are you just trying to associate the 2 very different stories for some perceived political gain?

Did anyone take affidavits from these witnesses?

I think she is trying to say that CRT will make racism go away, and not make it worse, which it will.

Maybe that is the real reason for CRT, divide people more, make racism worse, and force the government to take drastic action.

That is exactly what CRT will do and they know it. It is harder to overtake a country when the citizens stand together, therefore they need to have us pull ourselves apart. Classic Marxist tactics.

And those useful idiots that are cheering it on will come to regret it someday as they will be the first to pay the price.

Neither you, nor 95% of the people complaining about it, even know what CRT really is. It's become just a boogieman for people who object to anything even hinting at the existence of racism in this country.

Can you give us a quick synopsis of how it will help unite the country, defeat racism, and make our communities better?

Right, your special mind reading ability allows you to know what 95% of the country doesn't know. Nonsense.

You can be assured 95% of white parents are not in favor of having their children segregated by race in the classroom then required to falsely confess their inherent racism.

Almost every specific complaint I see about public school curricula and CRT is not about CRT.
