Critical Race Theory is the most venal racist nonsense to plague the Western world since Nazi “Racial Hygiene” theories. No one in their right mind could defend such hateful, racist garbage. Naturally, then, its spruikers lie through their teeth about it.
One of the biggest lies peddled by CRT enablers is claiming that it is not taught in schools. This is in response to US districts which have banned teaching it in schools.
It’s also a blatant lie.
At least 30 public school districts from 15 different states teach about race using a children’s book that claims “whiteness” is a contract with the devil, filmmaker and journalist Christopher Rufo reported this week.
“Whiteness” is the “nigger” of CRT. It’s the all-inclusive term of racial abuse and belittlement. The only difference is that when American blacks adopted “nigga”, they turned its usage back on their abusers. The grovelling white worms of the left are heaping the full opprobrium of “whiteness” on their own heads.
The book, titled “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness,” was published in 2018 by Dottir Press and written by progressive children’s author Anastasia Higginbotham[…]
Based solely on the plot, the book — though certainly hamfisted and partisan — might not be considered all that radical. But what’s particularly troubling are the downright racist insinuations made about white people that are sprinkled throughout.
As Randall Kennedy shows, in his history of “The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word”, “nigger” did not originate as an insult. In the early 17th century, “negar” and “neggor” were used as purely descriptive terms. Its first record as “an opprobrious term” was in the early 19th century.
“White” was similarly used – by whites – as a badge of honour: “He’s white right through”. CRT theorists have turned it into “an opprobrious term” that has acquired all the vicious hatefulness as “nigger”.
One such insinuation occurs toward the end of the book when the author writes, “Whiteness is a bad deal … it always was,” in response to a picture of the devil holding out “a contract binding you to whiteness.”
In case there were any questions about the identity of the devilish character, the author added, “Dude, we can see your pointy tail.”
According to the whiteness contract, signees are promised “stolen lands,” “stolen riches,” and “special favors.” In return, whiteness gets to “mess endlessly with the lives of … all fellow humans of color for the purpose of profit” — oh, and “your soul.”
In the book’s foreword, Higginbotham claims that she wrote the book to help her own white children “dismantle white supremacy.”
It’s as if a Jew had published The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, or forced their children to sit through Goebbels’s vile Der ewige Jude.
And “progressive” schools are eating up this race-hate like ice-cream.
According to Rufo, the school districts that have adopted the book into their curricula have done so by scheduling read-alouds in class, asking parents to read the book to their children, or including the book in recommended reading lists.
Rufo noted that in doing so, the school districts are trafficking “the noxious principles of race essentialism, collective guilt, and anti-whiteness” into classrooms.
He also pointed out that that the idea of “whiteness” as a form of “stolen land and riches” is derived from “one of critical race theory’s founding texts, ‘Whiteness As Property,’ authored by Cheryl Harris in 1993.”
“They’ve directly adapted CRT for elementary schools,” he argued.The Blaze
Race-hate peddlers always have wanted to get their hooks into children first.
