Critical race theory isn’t the way to start discussion

It’s time to wake up. We are in the middle of a cultural revolution. If we lose, think Cuba or Venezuela. But unlike them, we will not have anywhere to run to.

Case in point: the July 13 guest editorial, “Fear of critical race theory.”

Critical race theory and the 1619 Project are the two main subjects in the editorial, oh, and to find reason number umpteen thousand, to blame Mr. Trump for everything. My most important statement for the reader: “In America, we live in the least racist, multiethnic country in the world.”

Regarding 1619 Project, for concerned citizens, this is not fear of historic revisionism. This is fear of more brainwashing of our children with lies. Don’t let “Pulitzer Prize-winning” influence your thinking. It’s just another way the left uses to stop you from thinking.

The reader may want to take a minute and look up critical race theory; it’s obvious the writer did not. Start here, at https://www.britannica.com/topic/critical-race-theory.

The article tries to make you believe critical race theory is an innocent way to start a discussion on race in a classroom, but that could not be further from the truth.

The 1619 Project and critical race theory are one more attempt to divide Americans by race, gender, class, right out of the Marxist/socialist handbook.

For the record, that would be the same Marxism/socialism that has totally infected the media, academia, the Democratic Party and way too much, upper echelons of American government.
