Early in September, President Donald Trump recently enforced an executive order banning the theory from federal training.
According to documents released by Christopher Rufo, the director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, the CDC’s 13-week online training was scheduled to begin on Sept. 10.
The documents were obtained from the whistleblower, who was “outraged” that there were no signs of the training being canceled despite Trump’s ban, explained Rufo. (Related: Trump seeks to end “critical race theory” brainwashing in federal agencies.)
Rufo tweeted on Sept. 14, quoting the concerned whistleblower. According to the informant, employees received a message telling them that the training was already scheduled and that anyone who didn’t want to participate would have to explain that they weren’t racist for doing so.
On Sept. 15, Russ Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, declared via a tweet that the proposed training about critical race theory has been canceled as ordered by Trump.
Called “Naming, Measuring, and Addressing the Impacts of Racism on the Health and Well-Being of the Nation and the World,” the CDC’s planned training course would instruct participants to find “racism” or “systemic racism” in all situations. It appears that the CDC has plans to eventually turn employees into activists so they can continue spreading the critical race ideology even beyond the training course.
The course was also supposed to cover racist “norms,” such as a “narrow focus on the individual,” an “a-historical stance,” “the myth of meritocracy,” and the so-called “myth of American exceptionalism.”
Shockingly, the course even claims the phrase “If you work hard you will make it” is part of the “Myth of meritocracy” and part of “the values targets for anti-racism work.”
One topic for a session in the canceled training course includes “generalized” racism that alludes to “any system of structured inequity.” The topic suggests that in practice, any setting where any non-white group on average doesn’t achieve the same or better results than White people is considered “systemically racist.”
CRT claims that the power structure, particularly America’s legal, economic and educational systems, is inherently racist. It also teaches that race is a social construct, not a biological reality, invented by White people to maintain their power.
Racism isn’t viewed as individual acts of bad behavior. Instead, it’s considered a virus embedded in American institutions and culture. If you’re white, you’re a racist. No exceptions.
According to CRT, White people intentionally try to keep Black people in poverty because it benefits the former. People who blindly believe CRT often use aggressive tactics on those who don’t share their beliefs and unverified theories, which tend to be motivated hunches.
Robin DiAngelo, a white social justice educator, is the author of a book about the concept of “white fragility.” DiAngelo claims that all White people are “inherently racist due to a lifetime of coasting on their white privilege.”
Because it’s a sin to be born white, White people must pay for their whiteness by making an effort to reverse their “relative good fortune.” Does that even make sense?
If you make reasonable arguments about these claims, CRT disciples will tell you that you are exhibiting your white fragility. This, in itself, is also “proof” racism.
Whether you’re racist or not, you can’t win with someone who believes in CRT. This alleged theory isn’t backed by science. It actually resembles a cult that aims to address disappointment in the American republic and Enlightenment liberalism.
However, critical race theory is a dangerous mix of ideas that sabotages interracial relationships, especially since White people are forced to tiptoe around those who belong to a different race just to prove that they’re not racists.
According to 2018 income data, at least 60 percent of American Whites and 40 percent of Blacks belong to the middle or higher class.
Genetic ancestry data from different sources has found that a typical Black American is genetically between 65 to 80 percent African. On the other hand, a typical White is at least three to four percent African. This suggests that race is a more reliable proxy for genetic makeup than for class.
The CDC training program aims to brainwash participants to develop critical race curricula for schools of public health, medicine, social work and law. The program even plans to push the CRT agenda on young students in K-12 schools.
There are even plans to infuse the theory into children’s books.
Critical race theory may be somehow linked to radical organizations like Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM), which are both more interested in stirring up trouble than helping America maintain order so it can survive the pandemic.
Rufo is working tirelessly to fight against critical race theory in the American government, and he has continually unearthed documents that prove how the theory is being used for sowing discord in many institutions.
