This is an article taken from https://sovereignnations.com/2020/02/20/critical-race-theory-toxic-destructive-america/ I am providing it because it is explained by a Black Lady in the last two paragraphs as to her ethnicity and the desire for truth rather than prejudice. I have friend from every race and culture and religion and have found the enlightened of them are great folks that I would be proud to call my friends. Please take the time to read the following. Later, I will post the research I have done regarding slavery as endeavor taken by many for centuries. �??Under the guise of a venture called the �??1619 Project,�?� the New York Times is introducing revisionist history about race in America into classrooms across the nation without the normal peer review expected of educational materials. Jake Silverstein of the Times has written that the arrival of enslaved Africans �??inaugurated a barbaric system of chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years.�?� But conspicuously absent from the dominant historical narrative is the fact that free blacks and Indian tribes were right there alongside whites, buying and selling slaves after slavery became legal in 1661. (Don�??t believe it entirely) Historian Philip Foner, in his book �??History of Black Americans,�?� provides critical details that American students should know about the origins of slavery in America: Critical race theory is an analytical framework to analyze institutions and culture. Its purpose is to divide the world into white oppressors and non-white victims. Instead of traditional forms of knowledge, it holds up personal narratives of marginalized minority �??victim�?� groups (blacks, Hispanics, Asians) as evidence (considered irrefutably by its nature) of the dishonesty of their mostly white heterosexual oppressors. The ultimate goal of this theory�??s proponents is to remake society so that the victim class eventually displaces the oppressors and becomes the new ruling class. Within this framework, �??white privilege�?� and its unearned benefits become responsible for economic, health, and social disparities in minority communities. This system of thought advances a narrative of blame that declares white America guilty for the plight of blacks. The syllabus explains that critical race theory is a theoretical concept that emerged from the civil rights movement. The goal is to �??give voice to groups who have suffered from systemic oppression, and develop theoretical and practical ways for students to deconstruct the power structures.�?� When it comes to education, members of the victim classes are to do all the teaching. It is a worldview and narrative that commands white people to sit in obedience and listen quietly to arguments about their unjust gains as well as their obligation to provide a remedy for them �?? in this case, to black Americans, whether they are descended from slaves or not. There is no way out for whites when it comes to race. Critical race theory assumes that racism is permanent and affects every aspect of society, including political, economic, social and religious institutions. The theory further advances the belief that being born with white skin, in itself, confers unearned privileges. Therefore, any societal attainment of colorblindness, in which race or ethnicity does not hinder opportunities, is impossible. Neutrality in law and decision-making is a pipe dream that can never be attained. Therefore, this mistaken reasoning goes, the oppressive system must be dismantled and destroyed. Universities and colleges have created a cottage industry of people who profit from indoctrinating America�??s future leaders with a dangerous and destructive ideology. These future leaders spread this diseased ideology, like a virus without antidote, into corporate boardrooms as well as K-12 public and private schools, both Christian and non-Christian. One notorious example of the �??teaching�?� materials for diversity and sensitivity training is a short YouTube video entitled, �??The Unequal Opportunity Race.�?� It has had more than 1.3 million views as of this writing. Its crippling message is clear: White boys and girls have unfair advantages, and white-imposed roadblocks prevent black boys and girls from achieving success. We can do better. Within Christian communities, there is a basis for countering destructive narratives that have invaded our educational institutions and corporate world. The solution for hatred, bitterness, and distrust can be found in New Testament principles. Rather than wallow in the past and revisionists�?? efforts to build a case for reparations, we, as Americans, need to move forward while practicing the forgiveness and love of neighbor that Jesus espoused.�?� We need not look any further than the �??golden rule�?� �?? do unto others as you would have them do unto you �?? to find the tools that enable us to transcend racial and ethnic conflicts that keep us from working together and celebrating our victories. I reached my formative years before critical race theory and cultural Marxism had gained a dominant foothold in academia. Even though I was born and grew up in rural Southern poverty during the era of segregation, I was not taught to hate white people or to hate America. Instead, my black teachers stressed our need to work hard and excel. I grew up to be a proud American who never doubted she lived in the greatest country in the world. No one around me encouraged me to see myself as a victim. I never fixated on the fact that I was black, poor, and female. Had I done so, I doubt I would have achieved anything.�?� Written by Carol M.
