The very thing that parental rights advocates want to exclude in 2023 is the very thing that parental rights groups of the 1960s fought to have included: an accurate depiction of Black people in tAmerican history and culture.
Black parents in Loudoun County, Virginia, talked about how, for years, they showed up to school board meetings—just as the white CRT opposers do—to discuss Black students being forced to endure humiliating and disturbing lessons that trivialized slavery by turning it into a game. They said their concerns went ignored.
A Republican-endorsed video that Rep. Jerry Nadler successfully prevented from being played during a House Judiciary Committee hearing disproportionately features Black parents pushing anti-critical race theory propaganda.
School suspensions don’t just unfairly penalize Black students – they lead to lower grades and "Black flight."
In what has become known as "The Talk," which parents give Black boys about police encounters, I also teach my daughter to respect authority, but that she should never allow her rights to be violated.
