The Commies at Imgur are tickled because some Alabamans got confused between Black History Month and CRT:
As you can see, they consider it “Orwellian” and “white-supremacy” that some people get confused about which weapon du jour the Hostile Elite is using to persecute them.
Black History Month is not in our Constitution, it’s not a founding principle of the US, it’s not an educational basic like reading, writing and arithmetic – but it is usually presented in such a way that it’s full of misinformation and even lies.
Speaking of lies, The Independent just ran a story claiming that CRT is not taught in K-12 grades. Regarding CRT in schools, I’ve already proven this claim wrong. The article also mocks the Alabamans for confusing the two:
Eric Mackey, the superintendent for the southeastern US state, told members of the House Education Policy Committee on Wednesday about complaints he had received.
That reportedly included concerns about the academic study into systemic racism (CRT) being taught in schools this month – when in fact Black History Month was being addressed.
”There are people out there who don’t understand what Critical Race Theory is. And so in their misunderstanding of it, they make a report but it’s not actually CRT,” Mr Mackey told the committee, according to AL.com.
“I had two calls in the last week that they’re having a Black History Month programme and they consider having a Black history programme CRT,” he added on Wednesday. “Having a Black history programme is not CRT…”
The theory, which has traditionally been taught at university-level and involves the study of structural racism in the US, has not been found in schools elsewhere in the US but has been subject to attacks from the right – many of whom accuse CRT of being a cause of white “shame”.
In other words, it’s “a national scandal,” worthy of the front page of Microsoft News, when TWO PEOPLE confused Black History Month and CRT and called the superintendent. Not only is it “national news,” but it serves as an excuse to condemn conservatives, especially Southern conservatives.
We shouldn’t blame people for confusing Black History Month and CRT, because they’re both tools of oppression against white people. They both serve to elevate black people, and degrade white people – whether it’s emphasizing the accomplishments of blacks at the expense of whites, or disparaging whites for the supposed sins of their ancestors, it serves the same purpose.
