The Truth Will Make Us Free
Most likely you’ve been hearing a lot regarding CRT (Critical Race Theory) in recent weeks’ news. It amounts to revisionist history. It’s a subjective perspective authored by political activists and educational elites. While ignoring our national accomplishments towards the goal of equal opportunity, these establishment figures are focused on outcomes of equity. It’s an agenda designed not to celebrate a common set of admirable values, but rather to distinguish us by characteristics we have no control over. Sadly, it’s socialistic at best and communistic at worst. It’s a corrupted position and a sinister distortion of all we’ve overcome as a nation. It’s not about “all men are created equal”, but rather crafting guaranteed outcomes for those the establishment deems unqualified. Nothing is more un-American than to tell another, he or she is incapable of achieving their dreams because of how they look or what heritage they come from.

Distort and Divide
Interestingly there appears to be a split between certain states willing to embrace CRT and others vehemently opposed. As more information is revealed about CRT, more and more parents and individuals are taking a firm stand to reject this re-engineered approach to teaching American History. The concept of CRT first and foremost requires the student to look at our nation’s history through the lens of racism and class warfare. With CRT, we are reduced to the status of victims or oppressors, neither of which sounds appealing. In so doing, this Marxist approach pre-labels one or the other based upon heritage, ancestry, skin tone, or other human characteristics.
“I have a dream” MLK legacy….
The good news is, folks are not taking this laying down. Citizens understand the tone of E Pluribus Unum (out of many, one). We are no longer a nation when fracturing and separation occurs. CRT is born of jealousy and hate, not love and respect. The Constitution along with the Civil Rights Act that so many fought for guarantees a level playing field. This is a direct reflection on the Preamble to our United States Constitution which boldly declares “to form a more perfect union”. It makes available to us as citizens a structure to change things for the better under the auspices of the ‘rule of law’. As a nation we’ve come too far to allow a segment of society to rip at the fabric that binds us together. The CRT agenda can only result in discrimination and conflict. Our children don’t deserve to be pawns in an educational system that encourages hate.
The Fight of Our Time
At this time, I pray that anyone reading this message investigates the CRT agenda and spreads the word. We can not allow this to go unchallenged. Our response should be to approach local school boards and/or opt for homeschooling or private education. The leftists that occupy so much of our culture seem desperate to control and manipulate our behavior, at the expense of liberty and freedom. Our children are counting on us, we must stand firm!
