The new woke culture of the Democrat Party may have finally gone too far.
Teaching critical race theory (CRT) in our schools has become a major push by the Democrat Party and liberal school boards.
Parents, however, are starting to push back, with roughly half the states now seeing efforts to ban CRT from being taught.
This is one of those issues that seems to have two clear-cut sides in the argument.
Education Week recently published a report on CRT, stating that it is being perceived either as “a way of understanding how American racism has shaped public policy, or a divisive discourse that pits people of color against White people.”
This is also far from a one-sided push, as we now see more and more minority parents push back against CRT, calling it insulting and divisive.
Mixed couples are among the most prominent, arguing that since their children are both black and white, they would have to be considered both the oppressors and oppressed by CRT standards.
This, of course, does not even mention the ideas it would put into the heads of the children of these couples.
States are seeing a strong pushback on CRT now, and it is far from only red states pushing back.
So far, the following states have laws either in place or in the state legislature to ban CRT:
Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
Of those states, seven of them have already passed legislation banning CRT in schools.
This is a crushing blow for Democrats who consider this curriculum necessary to instill their liberal ideology and wokism in our children. Yet, both liberal and conservative parents do not want to see it taught.
