Cracking Down On Critical Race Theory

 From The Daily Wire:

Governor Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed into law a bill aimed at cracking down on teaching Critical Race Theory in Texas school curriculums. Although the law does not mention critical race theory by name, it is aimed at prohibiting schools and teachers from requiring that their students learn the concepts involved in Critical Race Theory. The bill outlines requirements for how the state board of education should present its history curriculum.

Teachers may not require students to learn certain concepts related to critical race theory, including that one race or sex is “inherently superior” to another, that an individual is “inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously” due to his race, or that an individual bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.

Other banned concepts include that a meritocracy or traits like a hard work ethic are racist or sexist or were created by one race to oppress another race, that slavery in the U.S. constitutes the true founding of the country, or that slavery and racism are anything other than “deviations from, betrayals of, or failures to live up to, the authentic founding principles of the United States, which include liberty and equality.” (Read more.)

One of the first colonies founded in this country was in Plymouth Massachusetts and slavery had nothing to do with it. So that makes it another lie promulgated by the Leftist-socialists that slavery in the US constituted the true founding of this country. Actually the first 'slave' labor in this Country was of young white male indentured servants in the colony of what is now Virginia.
