The statists who are promoting critical race theory (CRT) in our educational institutions would have us believe that it is merely teaching “accurate history.” But this history is warped and its proposed remedy — government-enforced discrimination against whites — would not bring about anything except endless group strife. And, of course, it would make jobs for lots of “diversity and inclusion” apparatchiks.

In this essay, attorney Hans Bader corrects a recent attempt by Reuters to whitewash CRT.

Bader writes that, “Reuters denied that critical race theory teaches that ‘discriminating against white people is the only way to achieve equality,’ saying that was a ‘misconception’ promoted by ‘conservative media outlets.’ It’s not a misconception. It’s the explicit position of the most famous exponent of critical race theory, Boston University’s Ibram X. Kendi. The ‘key concept’ in Kendi’s book How to Be an Antiracist is that discrimination against whites is the only way to achieve equality: ‘The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination,’ writes Kendi in that book, a New York Times bestseller touted by many progressive journalists.”

It’s a standard move by statists to use schools to push their divisive, authoritarian notions and then pretend that it’s all benign when they’re called out on it. Too bad that media outlets such as Reuters are now their accomplices.
