They scream it, Critical Race Theory is being pushed on our children. They are making kids feel guilty for being white! How dare they!
First of all, the study of critical race theory is a graduate study phrase that was lifted by some rightwing propagandist who found it in in some of footnotes of the 1619 project, a way to tell the truth about the history of slavery. No white children are being made to feel guilty for being white - that would be obtuse for a myriad of reasons.
And yet, Isn't it interesting that when you try to correct American history, you have not only some criticism, but a whole lot of lies all perpetuated by those who make it their lives work to rewrite any history. Say, even the last four years.
Please, I mean, I want my kids, and I want myself to know the truth about history. But then again, is it the right voice at the right time? Any teaching of history must take incredible care, yet still be true. Which way do you go from the start? In graduate school you could focus on a decade, just one decade, to uncover a great deal of truths. You can't do that with children. Yet, you do need to show the honest basic truths.
I see in the purlance of free thought regarding history, this 1619 project as important even if it might have missed some points. But then, we cannot go that far without the backlash. Sadly, we are a country that is not ready to completely and freely educate ourselves on the many contrivances, the myriad of ill conceived conceptions, as if, history was taught only to reflect what its not. History is the past, fixed. It's a fact, not easily uncovered. And sadly in places it has all too often been layered thin.
